    2. In any case that the wedding does not run on time (for example: extreme lateness of one of the clients) which postpones events, we cannot guarantee to take our normal set of photos, however, in such circumstances we will do our best to compensate.

    3. Many attending guests will have digital cameras and will want to photograph the clients. The Client agrees to give the Photographers precedence over the guests in order to take the photos as outlined above. We cannot be liable for lack of wedding photos due to guests taking their own photos continually interrupt the Photographer’s work.
