Kauai Video Productions’ photographer/ cinematographer  


Before making a reservation, the photographer/ videographer recommends that the client visit the Q&A page.

RESERVATION:  The photographer/ videographer will pencil in a requested date upon the client's verbal or written request, but to fully reserve the date the photographer/ videographer requires a 50% deposit. The balance is due on or before the event day.    

PRE-CONSULTATION: The parties agree to a pre-event consultation in order to avoid confusion about shooting times, locations, and any direction or instructions that the client might feel necessary.  

HOURS -  The photographer/ videographer's clock commences when he/she arrives at the client's first location. 

FINAL VIDEO PRODUCT (A)  LIVE EVENTS - The videographer will make every effort to give the Client outstanding audio and video recordings, but makes no guarantee either expressed or implied, with regard to the quality of either the audio or video recordings, which are subjective and influenced by many factors which might be beyond the videographer’s control, especially during live events. It is also understood that the client is hiring the videographer for technical and artistic expertise, and that the videographer will fashion the film in a way consistent with his portfolio and consistent with the package/options chosen by the client.   Should the client want alterations to the final edit, the client understands that additional aediting fees will be charged at the rate of $75/hr 

PAYMENT: the photographer/ videographer accepts cash, checks (payable to David Marsh) and credit cards through Paypal for a 3.5% fee.  

LATE PAYMENT AND OVERTIME PAYMENT: It is a standard practice in the event business for vendors to be paid on or before the event day.  If the client forgets to bring a check or other payment method for the balance owed, as sometimes happens at events, the photographer/ videographer  in good faith, will fulfill his filming obligation with the understanding that he will be paid within 3 business days.  Overtime payments to the photographer/ videographer (when the client asks the photographer/ videographer to film after the scheduled time has expired) must be paid within 10 days after the event. The photographer/ videographer reserves the right to add a late payment charge of $10% to the balance payment or overtime payment and an additional 1.5% per month accruing interest until paid. When full payment is received the photographer/ videographer will schedule the necessary post production for the client's film.     

RELEASE.  The client hereby grants to the Photographer/ Videographer and his legal representatives the right to use and publish the recorded video and photographic images for editorial, trade, and advertising purposes, and to alter the same without restriction. It is the client’s responsibility to advise all attendees that the event will be photographed/videotaped, and the client warrants that each attendee’s presence at the event is an admission that they have consented to be videotaped.     

LIMIT OF LIABILITY: The photographer/ videographer takes the utmost care with respect to exposure, transportation, and processing of the  media. However, in the unlikely event that all of the media is lost, stolen, destroyed, for reasons within or beyond the Videographer’s control, the videographer’s liability for filming the client’s event is limited to the return of photographer/ videographer payments received. 

COMPLETION SCHEDULE: The photographer/ videographer endeavors to complete the editing/delivery of the photographs and or video within 2 weeks however delays in completion might occur. Our editing timeframe guarantee for live events is 6 months; for scripted shoots the delivery will be defined by agreement.   

CANCELLATION: The photographer/ videographer will refund 80% of the deposit if the cancellation is sent in writing six months or more before the wedding/ event day. If there is less than 6 months to the event date,  the entire deposit paid is non-refundable, with the exception of cancellation due to an act of God such as an earthquake or hurricane that causes the closure of the airport or the facilities where the wedding is scheduled to take place. In the unlikely event that the videographer cannot avail his crew for the event date, the videographer will offer Client the choice of a substitute film crew or a full refund of the deposit, and the client agrees that said refund is all that he/she is entitled to.
