This agreement constitutes an order for wedding portraiture services, including the taking of wedding pictures as agreed to by both parties: Zura Lagarde Photography and client. Unless otherwise specified, it is understood that any and all rights to proofs, final or sample prints, thereof shall remain property of Zura Lagarde Photography and may be used for advertising, marketing, display or any other purpose thought proper by Zura Lagarde Photography.
If the photographer, Zura Lagarde, cannot perform this agreement in whole or in part due to an emergency, casualty, injury, acts of God or nature or terror or other cause beyond the control of the parties due to further liability with respect to this agreement no liability will be held to Zura Lagarde Photography. This limitation on liability shall also apply in the event that photographic materials are damaged in processing, lost through camera malfunction, lost in mail, or otherwise lost or damaged with fault on the part of the photographer. Client(s) agree that an entire wedding cannot be replicated, reenacted or repeated for the purpose of a re-shoot and limits Zura Lagarde Photography liability to the amount paid under this contract.
In the event of an extenuating circumstance on Zura Lagarde Photography’s part, Zura Lagarde Photography will find and hire an alternative photographer or reimburse the full amount paid to the customer, including the retainer fee. Zura Lagarde Photography will not be held liable for services not rendered. To receive a full refund, Zura Lagarde Photography must be notified 60 days before the wedding day; if not, Zura Lagarde Photography will get to keep everything that has been paid for up until that point. Zura Lagarde Photography also has 120 days to refund the money upon receiving notification that the wedding was cancelled.
On signing of this agreement by both parties hereto, Zura Lagarde Photography will reserve the time agreed upon and will not make another reservation for the specific time frame.
A 50% retainer is needed to secure your date and time of wedding and or purchase flight accommodations. The 50% retainer is non-refundable in the event of cancellation or date change. The 50% retainer covers the time spent coordinating pre wedding arrangements and securing a date which would otherwise be unavailable to other clients. The retainer will be applied towards the total amount billed. The remaining balance is due one week prior to the wedding date.
The amount agreed upon covers the photographer’s time, talent, proofing and editing. It also cannot be changed or altered by any means.
It is understood that Zura Lagarde Photography is the exclusive official photographer retained to perform the photographic services requested on this contract. No other photographer is allowed to take photos at the wedding or engagement session unless express permission is given by Zura Lagarde Photography.
Zura Lagarde Photography will choose the best images from the engagement session (if applicable) and the wedding day. Zura Lagarde Photography does not show un-edited images, nor involve the clients in the process of choosing which images will be chosen for the final gallery. Zura Lagarde Photography spends a great deal of time going through each image individually. Please rest assured that Zura Lagarde will only show you the BEST of the BEST and any images that are unappealing (i.e. eyes closed, unflattering facial expressions and most definitely, any images that do not meet Zura Lagarde’s high professional standards will get deleted immediately).
The wedding images will be displayed in an online gallery within 10-21 days from your wedding day. The online gallery will be available for 6 months. ($25.00 will be charged for each additional week you request the gallery to remain available).
An itinerary must be provided to the photographer before the wedding or a timeline should be discussed and created between the Client and Zura Lagarde.
If the wedding is located 2 hours or more away from Area code 33133 then a hotel room / Flight must be booked and paid for by the Client for Zura Lagarde Photography, unless otherwise discussed.
