WILD ARTISTRY PHOTOGRAPHY TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Thank you for considering booking a photoshoot with Wild Artistry Photography! Every client is expected to review our Terms and Conditions prior to booking with us.
Under U.S. law, the Copyright Act of 1976 grants exclusive rights to any images and digital photographic files taken for Wild Artistry Photography (hereby referred to as “Wild Artistry”) to the company, Wild Artistry. This grants Wild Artistry the ability to reproduce any photograph, derive future works from any photograph, distribute photographic copy for public sale or transfer of ownership, or by rental, lease, or lending, as well as display the photograph publicly. This includes photos taken during any Wild Artistry events, sessions, or private bookings.
Upon receiving digital files (unedited or edited) the client(s) (hereby referred to as “client,” which includes anyone involved or featured as a subject of a Wild Artistry photoshoot session regardless of who made the booking) is granted permission for personal use, but not commercial use. This includes making prints, posting on a website, or posting on social media. Wild Artistry does not permit images taken by any Wild Artistry event-contracted photographer to be shared with other photography studios, freelance individuals, and/or editing professionals—for altercation, reproduction, or resale—to guarantee protection of the authenticity of the art.
The client may not transfer or sell usage agreement to any other parties, and only the client has permission to use the images. Wild Artistry images and digital photo files cannot be manipulated significantly (any editing that would change the artistic style of the photograph). The client is not permitted to sell Wild Artistry prints, digital files, or images, nor send files or photos to other websites, magazines, or vendors without distinct and prior permission from Wild Artistry.
The client must provide full payment of the chosen listed package for the specific chosen event and/or private session (hereby referred to as “package payment”) to secure their photoshoot session with Wild Artistry.
A package payment is non-refundable. Upon payment of the necessary rescheduling fee, a package payment is generally creditable, within the parameters outlined in the following Refund/Cancellation/Reschedule Policy section.
ADD-ONS & PACKAGE ENHANCEMENTS
Add-Ons and Package Enhancements must be paid for in full at the time of ordering, which may be before, during, or after the session at the discretion of Wild Artistry via Paypal, or directly through cash, card, or Venmo to the contracted hair and makeup artists on the day of the event (depending on the item purchased).
In the case of Hair/Makeup services, the client must either confirm at the time of booking, or during the week prior to the booked photoshoot session (on the specific mentioned date in the provided information message), depending on the specific information outlined in the event description. If these conditions are not met, Wild Artistry is not guaranteed to have hair and makeup artists available for an event.
If receiving Hair/Makeup services, clients must arrive at the designated photoshoot location an hour and a half prior to the client’s selected shoot time to ensure completion of these services.
Titles to all goods (photography sessions/events, photos/digital files, Add-Ons, Package Enhancements, etc.) remain in the possession of Wild Artistry until paid for in full by the client.
Wild Artistry does not provide payment refunds, with the exception of 1.) an event cancellation through the company (see below) or 2.) an extreme circumstance under the company’s discretion.
From the date of booking until eight days prior to the selected event, the original payment will be credited for another future event upon payment of the $30 reschedule fee, paid in full prior to re-booking the session. If the client cancels within 1 week of the event, there will be an increased reschedule fee of $50. If the client cancels within 48 hours of the event, the event is non-creditable.
Event payments are creditable under these circumstances, but are otherwise non-refundable and non-creditable. When a client books a shoot/session/event, they are automatically agreeing to this policy.
Each event is offered on a specific date outlined on the Wild Artistry website. It is the client’s responsibility to ensure the possibility of attendance on the date of the desired event prior to booking confirmation. If the client selects an erroneous event date, it may not be possible to accommodate the client or reschedule the session to his/her desired event date, though attempts will be made to reschedule the client when possible.
In the event of cancellation by Wild Artistry Photography due to emergency circumstances, inclement weather, or total photographic failure, liability shall be limited to a full refund of any fees paid or a free reschedule to one future session. The client will be contacted through email with the stated options under these circumstances.
DIGITAL PHOTO FILES
All digital photo files (hereby referred to as “photo files”) remain the property of Wild Artistry. All event photo packages include a copy of the edited photo files—the amount of photos will vary depending on the selected package—and these edited photo files will be sent to the client for their own non-commercial use.
Should the photo files be lost, damaged, or destroyed for any reason prior to the client’s receiving of the photo files, the company liability shall be limited to a full refund of event package payments made, but shall not include a refund of any goods (Add-Ons, Package Enhancements, etc.) already received.
Once the client receives the photo files through their respective Pixieset link, they are held responsible for the immediate download and preservation of the provided photo files. The link provided with the client’s photo files, and the guaranteed preservation of photo files on company computers, will remain available for 30 days following distribution. After this period, the photo files will be deleted from all systems and assumed unrecoverable.
PHOTOGRAPHERS & PHOTO CONDITIONS
The designated photographer contracted for the booked session will be the sole professional photographer at the specified venue. Photographs captured during the course of the event/private session will be at the creative discretion of the photographer. Photographers will attempt to comply with the client’s specific needs and requests, but cannot guarantee.
Due to varying weather conditions, lighting conditions, digital sensor limitations, and other uncontrolled factors that may arise on the day of the shoot, colors may appear altered, and style may differ throughout a photography session. Similarly, colors and style are not guaranteed to be comprehensively consistent with event cover photos or other Wild Artistry event advertisements, though the photographer and photo editors will attempt to produce photos consistent with advertised event photos.
Unless a specific photographer is inquired about and stated to be contracted for a specific event, the photographer on the day of the event may vary.
Wild Artistry will provide the photographer’s contact information one week prior to the photoshoot date, to be used for contacting the photographer on the day of the event should any location concerns arise.
For events providing partial costuming, accessories, or handmade headpieces for session use, the client will be held financially responsible for any major damages or destruction to these items. If the client leaves the item(s) in unusable conditions for future use, the client will be held accountable, and immediate payment for the item(s) will be required by the client. The price of the item(s) will be determined by Wild Artistry, contingent upon raw material costs and duration/effort necessary for item construction. These prices will be discussed prior to the use of the materials upon the client's request for said prices.
For events or sessions that do not provide outfits, accessories, or costumes, Wild Artistry will not be held responsible for costs associated with item(s) purchased by the client for these sessions or events.
TIME SLOTS & WEATHER
Every client will receive a 30 minute photography shoot time slot for events, with the exception of private sessions (with a general 1-hour duration, depending on the predetermined price and booking agreement).
The client must arrive at the specified time in the provided information messages regarding their event and their time slot, depending on the necessity for Add-Ons/Package Enhancement goods and parking availability for certain locations. Generally, with no Add-Ons/Package Enhancements, the client must arrive at a minimum of 15 minutes prior to their scheduled shoot time to ensure parking does not present an issue, and the client properly locates the shoot.
If the client arrives late or at a different time than their specified time slot, the client is not guaranteed their full photoshoot time.
If rain or inclement weather presents an issue during an outdoor event, the photoshoot session may be paused briefly as weather conditions are monitored. The shoot will continue if conditions are deemed acceptable, with no risk of equipment damage, nor client or photographer endangerment due to thunder, lightning, heavy rain, or wind. The photo quality will also be considered when making decisions regarding moving forward with an event after a weather pause.
Any instruction or direction given to the client during a shoot is to be taken at the client’s own risk and responsibility. If the shoot involves live animals, the client assumes all responsibility not covered by Wild Artistry’s animal liability insurance for any injury or accident associated with interaction with the live animal. Wild Artistry is not responsible for any personal accident, injury, or sickness occurring during a photoshoot.
On the Monday following a client’s shoot, the client will receive a message containing any necessary follow-up information, along with the anticipated delivery dates for the photo files.
If the client selects the Unedited Photo Power Package Add-On/Package Enhancement, the client will receive all unedited photo files within 7-10 days following the shoot. The client will then be responsible for selecting their favorite photos by a specified date for the contracted editors to work on and complete before their respective deadlines. Once the client selects their photos, the selection is permanently submitted and cannot be changed.
The edited photo files take approximately 21 days to complete and deliver to clients following their shoot. If the client selects their photos after their given photo selection deadline, the completed (edited) photo files are not guaranteed by this original delivery deadline.
If the client is unsatisfied with any image edits and desires revisions, it is the client’s responsibility to contact Wild Artistry immediately via email. The notice of dissatisfaction and desired revision must be made within 7 days of receiving the final edits, or revisions may not be able to be made, under the discretion of Wild Artistry.
If I write “Yes” upon booking, I acknowledge that I have read and understood the Wild Artistry Photography Terms and Conditions in its entirety and agree to abide by it as it is listed above.
