Images that do not meet the standards of Nostalgia Photography & Editing are deleted in the first part of the editing process and are non-recoverable. Whilst every effort is made to ensure images presented are edited to the highest standards Nostalgia Photography & Editing makes no commitment to the extent by which images will be 'fixed' for the avoidance of doubt you can be assured that the photographer will endeavour to correct any non-permanent blemishes and make changes to the image that improve the finished result. On viewing your images, the Client is responsible for pointing out any additional editing that you may feel is necessary BEFORE placing your order. As photographic prints are bespoke products we are unable to accept responsibility for issues with images that are noticed after the products have been ordered unless it can be proven that they were not visible at the time of ordering.
Completion Schedule: Due to the nature of our sessions, completion and product delivery time may vary depending on the time of year. We aim to have all sessions edited within 2 working days, and your online proofing gallery password will be emailed up on completion. Prints and Products take 7-21 Working Days for completion upon ordering, and payment in full at this time.
Receipt of Pictures: The Pictures are presumed to have been received in good condition unless the Client notifies Nostalgia Photography & Editing in writing of any discrepancy or error within 3 days of receipt.
Because the supply of the photographs have been made to the Client’s personal specification, the client does not have the right to a cooling off period. By placing an order with Nostalgia Photography & Editing you are committing to buy the ordered products.
