We are fully insured for Public Liability and Professional Indemnity for £1m, also registered as a business with HMRC. Joe Hague has a fully Enhanced CRB check - which was completed by the FA (Football Association). All of our equipment is fully insured, and for any wedding/portrait session we always carry a spare camera, a number of lenses, and enough equipment that in the event of any failure of camera, flash etc.. we can continuing shooting.
As each shot taken is professionally edited - this takes time. Our aim is to ensure that as a maximum you are waiting no longer than 8 weeks from the date of your wedding to receiving your fully edited shots back on USB or in print. In respect of a portrait shoot, we aim to have the USB or prints back to you within 4-5 weeks. Should the above not be achievable - we will at all times keep in contact with you as some months are busier than others
Who owns the copyright on photographs?
Under law, it is the photographer who will own copyright on any photos he/she has taken, with the following exceptions:
In all other cases, the photographer will retain the copyright, if the photographer has been paid for his work, the payment will be for the photographer’s time and typically an allocated number of prints. The copyright to the photos will remain with the photographer, and therefore any reproduction without permission would be an infringement of copyright.
What are Print Rights?
Print Rights are given with all of my wedding/portrait packages and allow the client to print their shots from the provided source USB/Disc - you will be provided with a Certificate of Print Rights, and some vendors may ask for sight of this. Whilst print rights do not automatically give clients permission to place their pictures on Social Media, Joe Hague Photography will allow this as long as the picture hasnt been altered/re-edited/resized.
When using Social Media, please be aware of the rights that you allow/pass to the respective Social Media in respect of your pictures.
