    The client is aware that restrictions imposed by others (e.g. church, celebrant / priest, airline delays, customs / immigration, reception hall, guests and other vendors), and the constraints of the physical environment, safety, weather, lighting, location and acts of God can affect the quality and extent of the coverage possible. Hidden Valley Weddings will be the exclusive professional photographer/videographer. Friends and family are permitted to operate small video cameras on the condition that they donot interfere with or get inthe way of the professional coverage. Hidden Valley Weddings will not be held liable for any production problems beyond our control, e.g. bad weather, accidents, poor acoustics/lighting, interference from guests. It is at the discretion of Hidden Valley Weddings whether to shoot in the rain, as equipment is expensive and can be damaged. A plan B for a ceremony and other location is highly suggested to insure your ceremony is filmed/photographed.

We cannot guarantee coverage of outside events during inclement weather.The client is responsible for obtaining all permissions & clearances.

In the case a particular segment of the event is either not recorded, partially recorded, or not part of the edited master product, video / dvd, it is at the sole discretion of Hidden Valley Weddings as the exclusive producer of the event video recording.
    Due to our style and unobtrusive nature, Hidden Valley Weddings attempts to capture your event ‘as-is’. We will attempt to use existing light at all event locations, however if necessary we may use low wattage camera lights to acquire a satisfactory image. Environmental obstacles, background clutter or any other items will not be removed from photos or video, so it is advised to have a tidy area for coverage to take place. During the ceremony, Hidden Valley Weddings may use Wireless Lapel Microphones to capture audio. During reception speeches, Hidden Valley Weddings may use existing sound system connections at the venue to gain the best audio quality available. Upon taking possession of the finished product, the client must inform Hidden Valley Weddings of any technical or other problems with the video within 7 days. After 7 days, if no notification has been received, the client will be deemed to be satisfied with the product.

Changes to the final video, once accepted by the client as satisfactory, and which were not caused by Hidden Valley Weddings, are billed at a rate of $85.00 per hour with a minimum of 3 hours charged. These charges are not meant to be a deterrent, but changes to the final video that were not discussed with us ahead of time still take a great deal of additional editing time and excess materials.
