Wedding Photography Coverage The client will receive up to ten hours of wedding photography coverage, Please note that it will be up to the discretion of Penny Foster Photography to include the wedding breakfast as part of your consecutive photographic coverage. It is usual that the photographer takes a meal break during this time, and may add time onto your day to include any reception events. Meals are not expected to be provided by the client, although any pre arranged bar snacks or beverages are very much appreciated.
Wedding Photography Penny Foster Photography will make every effort to capture the requested images detailed in your returned questionnaire. However, any wishes made by the Client do not constitute contract terms, and Penny Foster Photography retains the artistic licence to capture appropriate and available images during the provision of the Wedding Photography Service.
