Cindy Kitchker Photography will provide a pleasing colour balance but cannot guarantee exact colour matching owing to anomalous reflectance caused by a combination of certain dyes and materials especially man-made fibres. It is sometimes impossible to record on film or digitally the exact colour as seen by the human eye. For a booking involving a church ceremony or at certain venues, the photographer's movements are sometimes restricted by the official in charge. The area from which the photographer is able to cover the ceremony may not be the photographer's choice and the photographer cannot accept responsibility for any obstructed view should this be the case. Cindy Kitchker Photography is not responsible if key individuals fail to appear, fail to co-operate during photography sessions, or for failure to capture images due to details not revealed to the Photographer. Cindy Kitchker Photography recommends a designated person to be an ‘event guide’ to point out important individuals for informal or candid photographs to Cindy Kitchker Photography during the Wedding Day. 

Raw images

As a photographer everything I put out into the world is a representation of my style and brand. The raw images could be posted as they are or edited in a manner that I wouldn't. As an artist it is important for me to release a finalized product. For this reason, I will not release any raw files.  

All images will be adjusted for exposure, brightness, contrast, sharpness, etc. Cindy Kitchker Photography's judgement regarding these corrections and the number of images put forward shall be deemed correct. If an image is good and unique it will be included.


Digital files in JPEG format, and prints if specified on the package you choose will be delivered within four to six weeks of the wedding day, during the most popular months for weddings, April through to October please allow up to eight weeks for delivery, I will always endeavour to deliver your photographs as soon as I possibly can. 
Digital files will be uploaded to the online protected viewing gallery and will be available to download and share via social media. 

Creative licence

Cindy Kitchker Photography shall be granted artistic license in relation to the poses photographed and the locations used. The Photographers judgment regarding the locations, poses and number of images taken shall be deemed correct. Due to the vagaries of the weather and the willingness of subjects it may not be possible to capture all the images requested. On it's own behalf, and on behalf of the subject, the client acknowledges that they are familiar with the photographer's portfolio and are requesting services with knowledge of the photographers style: that the photographer's work is constantly evolving: that the photographers services are unique and artistic nature: that the photographs may be different from photographs taken by the photographer in the past: and that in creating images consistent with the personal vision of the event, which vision may be different from the clients and the subjects vision of the event. Accordingly, the client acknowledges that the photographs shall not be subject to rejection on the basis of taste or aesthetic criteria.
The photographer will endeavour to take all the photographs agreed. However, because a wedding is an uncontrolled event, the photographer cannot guarantee delivery of any specifically requested image(s), especially if timings or events are altered without our knowledge. Due to changes of the weather and the availability and willingness of subjects The Photographer will do their best to honour requested photographs but cannot undertake to guarantee any specific picture nor incorporate any specific background, location or group arrangement.
