Terms & Conditions

TERMS & CONDITIONS for booking VFM photographers:

  • $200 is the wedding booking fee. Once paid, it will secure your wedding date with VFM. The remaining balance of $1000 is due one month before your wedding date.

  • Your wedding deposit is non refundable if you cancel your wedding photography booking with VFM at any stage. You also understand you may loose your booking fee if you change your wedding date and VFM is totally booked for your new date.

  • If you cancel your wedding photography booking within two weeks of your wedding date, you understand that because VFM has allocated a professional photographer for your wedding date, that VFM is committed to paying for the photographer. Therefore you understand that the full amount of your wedding photography still needs to be paid two weeks before your wedding date even if your wedding photography booking is cancelled within this time.

  • You understand that VFM offers the starting package to include three hours. Extra hours are at $180 per hour. Any extra photography coverage required, needs to be finalised and paid two weeks before the wedding date.

  • By booking VFM, you understand that you will not meet your wedding photographer before your wedding date (one of the reasons VFM can offer such an affordable wedding photography price). Two weeks before your wedding date, you will be informed of your wedding photographer and their contact details. Your wedding photographer will call and chat with you around two weeks before your wedding date.

  • All VFM photographers have been approved because of their excellent technical skills, creative & candid style of photographs, years of experience, high level of professional knowledge, pleasant and friendly personalities and their ability to capture images that will make our clients happy, even in difficult conditions. Even though VFM photographers are exceptional, it is responsible for VFM to include a condition if something does go wrong. Therefore VFM agrees that if all the images do not turn out due to the fault of VFM or their suppliers, that VFM will refund the full amount of the wedding photography or agree to reshoot the wedding photography. You understand that for this guarantee to be valid, all terms & conditions must be followed.

  • Your wedding images will be provided as high resolution jpeg files on DVD disk (can print up to a 12×16 inch photograph). We provide all files as black & white and colour images only.

  • Any parking fees or water taxis charges is extra and is required to be paid before wedding disk will be couriered.

  • You understand that no enhancement of images is included in the price i.e. removing skin blemishes etc.

  • Your disk will be couriered to you, two weeks after your wedding date (providing all invoices have been paid, including any parking & water taxis fees).

  • Once you receive your wedding disk from VFM, it is understood that VFM can not be held responsible for poor printing or damaged disks caused by other photographic services. VFM is more than happy to recommend a preferred printing supplier to assist with all your printing needs.

  • VFM guarantees to store your photographic images up to four months after your wedding date. It is highly recommended you make many copies of your wedding disk.

  • If you require more than one hour of photography coverage into the reception, a meal is to be supplied to your wedding photographer (only if the whole wedding photography coverage is more than four hours).
