Here's everything you need to know about the legal side of your wedding photography
About the Terms & Conditions
As part of the booking process, you will indicate your acceptance of the terms and conditions. This protects us both and means that there will be no surprises along the way. If you have any questions about the terms and conditions then please do ask me. I place a high value on clarity and integrity, and I want you to be 100% informed and happy with everything.
See terms & conditions in the tab above.
Any information you give me is held securely and I am fully compliant with the requirements laid down by law in the Data Protection Act (DPA) 1998, The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations (PECR) 2003 and the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2018.
Copyright is a legal right that protects the creator of an original work by giving them exclusive rights for its use and distribution. Basically, it stops other people using it without permission. In photography, copyright always remains with the photographer so when you buy digital/printed copies of your pictures, you are not buying the copyright as well - that remains with AHP Photo Ltd.
I give you the rights to reproduction and distribution and I reserve the rights to adaptation and attribution. This means you are free to print and share the pictures as much as you like as long as you don't edit them and as long as you attribute them to me, including when you share them on social media. It's easy to add attribution to a photo - simply tag me as the author in the image post. Thank you :)
More information on copyright
Most venues require that any photographer working there has Public Liability Insurance (PLI). This provides protection for the venue in the unlikely event of photographers or photography equipment causing damage to others. If you are asked about this by your venue, you can assure them that I have public liability cover to a value of £2 million.
View my PLI certificate
I am a top-level member of CPS (Canon Professional Services), a club run by Canon exclusively for professional photographers. This guarantees a 2 day turnaround of equipment repair and provides loan equipment for the duration, so I will never be without the equipment I need.
On the wedding day itself I always take a set of backup equipment so, in any event of camera failure, I can switch to another straight away. All my cameras carry two storage cards and every picture is duplicated. If one of the cards fails before the images are transferred to my computer, I have another with the full set of images. I take great care to make sure that your precious pictures are super safe.
