Coverage. Every effort will be made to capture as many moments of your day as humanly possible however it is not possible to capture absolutely everything. If you have suggestions or desires for photos to be captured such as a surprise dance down the aisle or a set photo of the groom and his mum, please write them down on a list for me and I will do my best to get them. Because of the ever-changing nature of wedding days, not everything can be covered. Litrato is not responsible for a missing family member(s) during the family photo session.
Guest Cooperation. The client is responsible for the conduct of their guests. Litrato will not tolerate verbally or physically abusive behaviour. If the client is unable to control the conduct of their guests, resulting in an unacceptable degree of misconduct, or if the conduct of any of their guests damages the equipment of the photographer, it will result in the early or immediate departure of the photographer. The client understands that in such an event, no refunds will be granted.
