The Digital Images will be uploaded to a secure site for download.
COOPERATION & AVAILABILITY
The parties agree to cheerful cooperation for the best possible results. In order to help achieve the best results possible at large events, either the Client or their designee must point out individuals/groups that are important to have photographed. It is the Client’s responsibility to ensure that key individuals are on time, available, and prepared to be photographed.
COPYRIGHT, LICENSE TO USE, AND MODEL RELEASE
It is understood that Sunkissed Studio Photography owns the copyright to all of the Digital Images and reserves the right to use them for display, publication,
Advertising or other purposes. Upon receipt of final payment, the Client is granted a
Non-Exclusive Unlimited License to use the Digital Images for their own purposes.
No Digital Images will be provided to the Client until full payment has been made.

For events, a non-refundable retainer totaling 50% of the agreed-upon amount is due upon signature of this agreement. The balance is due the week before the event. Overtime will be charged at R1000 per hour after agreed-upon time. Any overtime fees approved verbally by the Client during the event are due upon completion of the event. For Engagement Photo Sessions and Portrait Sessions, payment in full is due at the time the photos are taken. Upon receipt of the deposit, Sunkissed Studio Photography will reserve the specified date and time for the event. All deposits are non-refundable even if the date has changed or the event is canceled for any reason.
