2 Videographer Services and Limitations on Liability.

2.1 Videographer Services.  Videographer shall videotape as much of Client’s Wedding as reasonable, in the Videographer’s sole discretion. Videographer shall have full production and creative license to film and edit the Final Video based on Videographer’s artistic style and expertise.  The videotape footage used in the Final Video is at the artistic judgment and discretion of Videographer.  Client agrees to trust Videographer’s artistic judgment in designing the Final Video, including Videographer’s decisions regarding brightness of picture, layout, and any other design elements contained in the Final Video.

2.2 Exclusivity.  Client agrees that Videographer is the exclusive and official videographer retained by Client to videotape Client’s Wedding. Family and friends of Client shall be permitted to videotape the event, for non-commercial purposes, provided that they do not interfere with Videographer’s duties. If, in the opinion of Videographer, they are inhibiting Videographer from performing its duties, Client shall require those interfering with Videographer to stop all activities causing the interference.

2.3 Videographer Limitations on Liability.  Videographer cannot interrupt or interfere with the Wedding in any way to correct less than satisfactory shooting conditions.  Videographer shall not be responsible for footage that is missed or omitted because Videographer is being blocked.  Wedding venues have several different types and amounts of lighting, each light source having its own color temperature.  The video footage may be too dark or too light, depending on the venue.  Additionally, every venue is different acoustically so Videographer does not guarantee any particular audio characteristics.  Videographer will make every reasonable effort to provide the best video and audio quality as possible.  Since sound is taken from several different sources, some audio adjustment may be necessary while viewing the Final Video.  Videographer will make every reasonable effort to make all audio as close decimally as possible.

2.4 Re-Edits to Final Video.  Any requests for re-edits to the Final Video will be made at $50.00 per hour for editing and labor.  However, Videographer is under no obligation to re-edit Client’s Final Video and any requests for re-edits are entirely in the discretion of Videographer. Any requested re-edits must be submitted by Client within thirty (30) days of Client’s receipt of the Final Video.  Client understands that the Final Video is a creative piece of work and that Videographer does not provide any refunds based on Client’s opinion of the Final Video.

3.1 Non-Refundable Reservation Fee.  A reservation fee is due to Videographer at the time of signing this Agreement in the amount of Fifty Percent (50%) of the amount listed on line 15 in Schedule 1.3 (the “Reservation Fee”).  Once this Agreement is signed and the Reservation Fee is paid, Videographer shall reserve the time and date agreed upon for Client’s Wedding, and Videographer shall not make other reservations that will conflict with said event.  For this reason, all reservation fees are non-refundable.  The Reservation Fee shall be applied to the total Wedding Package Cost.
