If, in this circumstance you do not wish to proceed with the filming a full refund will be issued. No refunds will be issued once filming has been completed.

7. Raw footage is an optional extra and is only available upon completion of the final edit. Footage will be supplied in QuickTime .MOV format and .MTS format and will require an adequate computer system to play correctly. Raw footage is just that, it is rough and un-edited footage and could be shaky, blurry or varying in exposure. Raw footage will be deleted from our system after delivery of the final product and will no longer be our responsibility.

8. We endeavor to produce our very best quality work while delivering in a timely manner and working to your budget. With this in mind, we require certain creative freedom over the final edits. Minor editing changes to your video are allowed, however charges at $70 per hour may apply depending on the circumstance.

9. Couples can supply their own music to be used in the film prior to the commencement of editing, otherwise we will choose music we consider suitable. It is understood that couples who supply their own music have obtained the rights from the respective artist or distributer. Due to copyright constraints, all ‘highlights’ films which can be shared online, will only be edited to music that is either copyright free or where the rights have been obtained. Longer version of the films, deemed to be for the couples personal use only (including speeches, ceremony & feature length films) may contain popular & ambient music. Unless otherwise agreed, any music changes requested after the edit has been completed will be subject to a $200 music change fee.
