Due to the situation with COVID-19 and venues, restaurants, hotels and registrar offices have taken the governments advice to close. Joe Hague Photography are here to help and advise where possible with your current or future booking with us.
To date we have had 18 weddings postponed which is very sad for our lovely couples who have been planning their wedding (some over 3 years), we have fortunately been able to re-book in 13 of those couples so far with new dates. 2 couples are yet to find a new date, with 3 couples sadly having to find another photographer for their wedding as we are not available on their new date.
As you will or may be aware our contract cancellations terms are 50% -100% of the balance due with a customer cancellation (8 weeks down to 4 weeks to the wedding) - I have taken the decision to not enforce this where we cannot offer our services for their new date - we are in unprecedented times and to enforce contractual obligations like that would not sit well with me.
We are here to discuss your future wedding - NB 2021 is becoming close to capacity due to the postponements from this year - hence please enquire asap
We have a pricing matrix on our prices page, no travel costs are payable for weddings). Once we have given you a quote there are no hidden extras. The price you see is the price you pay
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 photographs back on USB or in print (however we are looking at 5-6 weeks in 2021. Should the above not be achievable - we will at all times keep in contact with you as some months are busier than others (Especially April - October)
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.
