Jeff Sham Photography | Terms of Business

Terms of Business

By placing your order, you agree to the terms of business of Jeff Sham Photography.


  • A booking fee of £150 is payable on booking. This may be refunded up to one month after the date of booking, but is not refundable thereafter.

  • The remaining balance is payable two months prior to the wedding. In the event of cancellations, this is non-refundable unless we are able to book another wedding on that date. Failure to make payment by the date stipulated may result in cancellation.

  • There is no charge for travel up to 30 miles. Beyond this, travel is charged at cost. Traveling time between locations is included in the time allowance.

  • Should coverage extend beyond the agreed time allowance, a charge of £125 will be levied per extra hour (or part thereof).

  • Re-order print prices are those ruling at the time of placing the order, with payment requested at the time of placing the order. Sizes of prints quoted are approximate. Wedding galleries will remain online for a minimum of 6 months.

  • We shall be granted artistic license in relation to the poses photographed and the locations used. Although every effort will be made to comply with the customer’s requirements, the photographer’s judgement regarding the location, poses and number of photographs taken shall be deemed correct and not subject to dispute.

  • We will endeavour to take all photographs that we have agreed. However, it may not be possible due to circumstances beyond our control, e.g. adverse weather conditions, if timings or events are altered without our knowledge, where photographic restrictions apply at certain churches or venues, or non-availability of subjects.

  • Owing to anomalous reflectance caused by a combination of certain dyes and materials, especially manmade fibres, it is sometimes impossible to record the exact colour of materials as seen by the human eye.

  • During a wedding, we will automatically retake any photograph where we have seen that someone has blinked, but it is impossible to guarantee to see them all. The more people in the photograph, the more difficult it is to see.

  • The 1988 Copyright Act assigns the copyright to Jeff Sham Photography. It is contrary to the Act and strictly illegal to copy or allow to be copied, distribute, or edit any photograph covered by this contract without permission, except under your personal licence agreement.

  • We reserve the right to use the digital files and any prints for display, promotional and any other purposes, including competition, advertising, marketing, websites, and social media.

  • We will not submit all the photographs taken and the final selection of prints submitted will be entirely at our discretion.

  • In the unlikely event that the photographer cannot attend your wedding due to unforeseen circumstances, we reserve the right to appoint another suitable photographer to attend the wedding to undertake the photography to the best of their ability.

  • The responsibility of Jeff Sham Photography, its agents or servants (including photographers, processing laboratories, postal and delivery agents) to compensate the customer in the case of any negligence or breach of contract is limited to the cost to the customer of the booked service at the time of the booking.

  • All prices and Selections are correct at the time of going to press and are subject to change at our discretion.

  • Any personal data submitted will be processed and stored according to our Privacy Policy as displayed on our website.
