This will be stored for an initial period of 6 months in order to respond to enquiries promptly and to best serve potential clients.

In order to create and deliver photographic services and to deliver the comprehensive coverage seen in my portfolio, it is also necessary that we store images of your likeness, both of yourselves as signatories and, in the case of weddings, of your families and guests, as both jpg and RAW files on secure storage. RAW & jpg files are stored actively for 6 months of service date, after which jpgs may be stored indefinitely for purpose of proof of copyright. After 6 months of service date I can not guarantee the images will be available as per contract.
