Accent Pro Images will do its best to produce more than discussed with the Client but there is no guarantee that any particular number of proofs will be produced. Proofs will be available to view online usually within 3 weeks of your session or Wedding.
The proofs provided in the online gallery are final, images that do not meet the exacting standards of Accent Pro Images are deleted in the first part of the editing process and are non-recoverable.
Whilst every effort is made to ensure online gallery images are edited to the highest standards the Photographer makes no commitment to the extent by which images will be ‘fixed’. For the avoidance of doubt you can be assured the Photographer will endeavour to correct any non-permanent blemishes and make changes to the image that improve the finished result.
On viewing your online gallery you (the Client) are responsible for pointing out any additional editing you may feel is necessary BEFORE placing your order. We are unable to accept responsibility for issues with images that are noticed after your product has been ordered unless it can be proven that they were not visible at the time of ordering (e.g. Obscured by the Copyright Watermark). If the Client feels extensive re-touching is necessary for their own satisfaction then there may be an additional charge for this.
Galleries will remain online for a maximum of 21 days within which time your order should be placed. Should circumstances prevent it from being possible for you to make your order in that time please let us know and the gallery will be reloaded for a further period. Galleries cannot remain online indefinitely.
Accent Pro Images shall be entitled to use it’s judgment regarding the style and artistic input/licence in the production of pictures. This includes but not limited to poses, props, and the number of images taken. Due to weather and willingness of subjects it may not be possible to capture all the pictures requested, or images of the Clients full expectations. In the event of uncooperative children at a session of any kind, for any reason, Accent Pro Images may not be able to capture any, or all the images the Client may have requested or expected. The Client is responsible for all children and their behaviour at all sessions.
