Additionally, in the unlikely event of a total photographic failure or cancellation by either party or in any other circumstance the liability of one party to the other shall be limited to the total value of the services. Neither party shall be liable for indirect or consequential loss.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Lanmen Photography, its affiliates, licensors and service providers, and its and their respective officers, directors, employees, contractors, agents, licensors, suppliers, successors, and assigns from and against any claims, liabilities, damages, judgments, awards, losses, costs, expenses or fees (including reasonable attorneys' fees) arising out of or relating to your violation of these Terms or your use of the Website, including, but not limited to, your User Contributions, any use of the Website's content, services and products other than as expressly authorized in these Terms or your use of any information obtained from the Website.
Payment for Services
All payments for services are provided either before date of services, or on date of services either directly with photographer or via PayPal. Images will not be sent until full payment has been made. Lanmen Photography allows for a maximum of 120hrs or 5 days for storing images before they are deleted to lack of payment due to technical issues when attempting payment.
All prices indicated on this, and all Lanmen Photography websites are expressed in US dollars (USD$). The prices charged may vary according to changes in the foreign exchange rates. We have no control over the foreign exchange rates set by financial institutions and bear no responsibility for the foreign exchange conversion used. All prices are correct at time of publication. However, we reserve the right to alter prices for any reason without notice. Note exchange rate does not apply to PayPal.
Once a client has booked a date and time, it is block on calendar and unable to be changed, the photographer schedules around that booking, so cancellations become an inconvenience and loss. The client may cancel a booking at any time 72hrs hours before confirmed shoot time by giving written notice by email, but in doing so shall forfeit any fees paid. If the client chooses to cancel their session based on weather forecast, against the advice of Lanmen Photography, we cannot guarantee a rescheduled booking. Any booking cancelled within 72hrs of confirmed shoot time, will result in 30% charge of total shoot fee. Any booking cancelled within 24hrs of confirmed shoot time, will result in 60% charge of total shoot fee. All no shows result in a 100% charge. All cancellations MUST be in writing.
Due to the nature of digital photography, once digital images are sent, they cannot be returned and the fact that photographers, once booked, cannot use date/time chosen by clients for any other purpose. As such, Lanmen Photography has a strict NO REFUND POLICY. Once a transaction has been completed (i.e., the client selected and paid for booking/reserving a specific date/time or paid for services rendered) it is then considered non-refundable. Refunds will NOT be given due to “not liking a photo” etc. after the client has already received services and the images. Payment covers time on locations, skill in service, hours of selection & editing, all of which cannot be returned to the photographer.
Specific Image Requests
Due to the unpredictable and uncontrollable nature of weather and image subjects, the photographer can make NO guarantees regarding the delivery of any specific photograph; although the photographer will make every reasonable effort to meet the desires of the client. The photographer shall not be held liable or responsible for any persons present at session who is not co-operative resulting in a failed image or unsatisfactory image to the client. After your photos are sent client has 72hrs to request any changes or images that may have not made the gallery. Images may be purged 21 days after session.
The photographer is limited by the guidelines of the venue and event officials and/or management. Client agrees to accept the technical results of their imposition on the photographer. Negotiation with the officials for moderation of guidelines is the client's responsibility; the photographer will offer technical recommendations only.
Shooting Time/ Additions
The photography schedule/ shooting time is designed to accomplish the goals and wishes of the client. The client and the photographer agree that cooperation, communication and punctuality are therefore essential to that purpose. If client or any member of their party of the confirmed photo session is late or absent, the photographer shall not be held liable for not photographing said individual(s), or for time lost as a result. In the case of the photographer being late, the time will be added to satisfy scheduled booking. All sessions are stated at "Up to" meaning that session may last up to agreed time, not always exact. As Lanmen Photography does not limit the amount of proof/ card conversion images clients receive, we try to shoot as many images within the allotted time without being repetitious. This may result in time being longer or slightly shorter, but doesn't affect the number of images received, once the photographer has chosen and edited.
Any directions issued to clients, their guests or employees during a photographic shoot are deemed to be at said person's own risk. The photographer cannot be held responsible for any personal accidents during a photo shoot.
In the unlikely event of the assigned photographer being unable to attend your session due to unforeseen circumstances, we reserve the right to appoint another photographer to attend your session on our behalf to undertake the photography service to his/her best ability.
The photographer reserves the right to terminate coverage and leave the location of the EVENT(S) if the photographer experiences inappropriate, threatening, hostile or offensive behavior from person(s) at the EVENT(S); if the safety of the photographer is in question.
Under the Terms of international intellectual property copyright laws, all photographs taken by Lanmen Photography remains the sole property of Lanmen Photography. By accepting these Terms and Conditions the client hereby gives permission to Lanmen Photography to use all images and reproductions on the Business' web sites and for displays, samples, self-promotional advertising and photographic competitions. The client may print photographs taken under this contract. Client is not allowed to alter, change, disfigure crop, or ruin in any way photographs taken by this contract. Any of such is to be requested by client to Lanmen Photography. All rights including copyright and reproduction rights relating to work, images (whether electronic or otherwise), ownership of goods and services which are photographed, taken, produced or supplied by Lanmen Photography.

● Digital files may be used by the client for personal, non-commercial use and for the purposes of the reproduction and giving of photographs to friends or relatives.
● The client may NOT edit photographs in any way, including by not limited to changes in color, contrast or cropping.

Charges for re-edits may be applied at the photographer's discretion.
