5. ENTIRE AGREEMENT
This agreement contains the entire understanding between Kirra Photography and the Client. It supersedes all prior and simultaneous agreements, either written or verbal between the parties. The Client acknowledges that the Client cannot rely on any representations made by Kirra Photography during the course of any negotiations as they do not form part of this Agreement nor may the Client rely on existing images taken by Kirra Photography as an indication of the quality and outcome of this event for the Client.
If the parties agree to waive one provision of this agreement then such waiver does not mean that any other provision is also waived. The party against whom a waiver is sought to be effective must have signed a waiver in writing.
Upon signature of this Agreement by the parties and receipt of the deposit as outlined in 4: Payment, Kirra Photography will reserve the time and date agreed upon, and will not make other reservations for that time and date.
The parties agree to positive co-operation and communication for the best possible result within the definition of this assignment. Kirra Photography is not responsible if key individuals fail to appear or co-operate during photography sessions, neither for missed images due to details not revealed to Kirra Photography. Kirra Photography recommends that the Client designate an “event guide” on the day to point out important individuals for informal or candid photographs to the photographer during the event that they wish to have photographed. The Client is responsible for the conduct of their guests.
9. IMAGES OF CHILDREN
The Client hereby agrees that the Client is solely responsible for obtaining the consent of the guardian of any child under the age of eighteen (18) years that may be the subject of photography or appear in any photographs. The required consent is assumed by signing of this Agreement.
The photographs, digital negatives and prints (“collectively called “the photographs”) produced by Kirra Photography are protected by Federal Copyright Laws (all rights reserved) and may not be reproduced in any manner without Kirra Photography’s written permission. Kirra Photography hereby agrees to allow the Client to use and reproduce the photographs for the Client’s own personal use.
11. LIMIT OF LIABILITY DUE TO ILLNESS OR INJURY
In the unlikely event that Mikaela Kirra Ryan of Kirra Photography is injured or becomes too ill to photograph the event, Kirra Photography will endeavour to assign another Photographer of similar ability, as agreed upon by both parties.
12. LIMIT OF LIABILITY DUE TO LOSS
In the event that the photographs, images or data is lost, stolen or destroyed, Kirra Photography’s liability is limited to the return of all payments received for the event.
Although every possible care will be taken to produce photographs of all important events during the shoot, Kirra
Photography cannot place an unconditional guarantee on the above. Kirra Photography will not be held responsible for any ruined photographs due to guests’ (or any other) flashes; or any other ruined photographs due to any other cause in or outside of Kirra Photography’s control.
Kirra Photography will not tolerate verbally or physically abusive behaviour, nor will they share their time or compete with guest photographers for the attention of the subjects. Unchecked guest conduct that interferes with photography may seriously affect the quality of the photographs taken and increase the number of times photos must be re-taken. If the Client is unable to control the conduct of their guests, resulting in an unacceptable degree of misconduct, or if the conduct of any of their guests damages the equipment of Kirra Photography, it will result in the early or immediate departure of Kirra Photography. The Client understands that in such an event, Kirra Photography may request a recovery cost for damaged property.
15. COMPLETION SCHEDULE
