Gift Vouchers general Terms & Conditions; Your gift voucher is issued by, and remains the property of, Sarah Walton Photography. It must be kept in a safe place and presented at the time of booking your photography session (either by phone picture, email or in person) to verify that you are the gift voucher holder. All photography sessions must be scheduled at least 2 weeks in advance, and are based on photographer availability. The photography session is to be held at a time and location agreed to by the photographer. The location must be either at our studio in Steeton, or within 20 miles of BD20 6RL, otherwise reasonable travel charges may apply. Gift vouchers are valid for a period of 12 months from the date of issue and the session must be booked for a date within this 12 month period. Gift vouchers can only be used at Sarah Walton Photography for photographic services and/or products as described on the voucher, no substitutes or alternatives are allowed. Gift vouchers can only be used once and you may not exchange your gift voucher for cash. We are not responsible for lost or stolen vouchers and replacement is at the sole discretion of Sarah Walton Photography. Refunds will not be given for a gift voucher. Only the original gift voucher is accepted and a damaged voucher may not be accepted. Gift vouchers cannot be used in conjunction with any other vouchers or offers and are non-transferable. You may not sell your gift voucher and it may not be used in sales or promotional activities including giveaways, or prizes in competitions without our prior consent. We reserve the right to cancel any gift voucher that we suspect has been resold or obtained in connection with an unauthorised sales or promotional activity. All gift voucher holders must sign a legally binding photography contract with Sarah Walton Photography, before any photographic or print services will be administered. Without a signed contract, the gift voucher holder does not have the rights to any services provided by Sarah Walton Photography, and does not have the right to use the gift voucher in exchange for any photographic or print services. Sarah Walton Photography reserves the right to amend these gift voucher terms and conditions from time to time with no prior notice.
Gift vouchers towards a session; The gift voucher entitles the holder to a single photography session only and does not include prints, products, albums or digital images, unless stated otherwise on the gift voucher itself. However, the value of the voucher will be deducted from any package or product order over or above £299, should a recipient wish to purchase prints, products, digital images and/or albums over and above the value of their gift voucher. In this circumstance, the Client agrees to forfeit any and all products that may be included on the gift voucher in exchange for credit towards their order (i.e. you will not receive credit towards an order plus the products listed on the gift voucher). All items ordered will be charged at our normal rates. Packages and/or products can be selected at your viewing appointment, which will take place in our studio approximately 2 to 3 weeks after the date of your photography session. All orders are payable at the time an order is placed and cannot be cancelled or altered due to the bespoke nature of our items. Your gift voucher will be forfeited if you do not attend your appointment (session or viewing) and all print credit will also be forfeited. Rescheduling, and carrying over your gift voucher may be considered where (1) more than 48 hours notice of cancellation is given and (2) if there is a genuine reason beyond your control. Any such rescheduling and carrying-over is entirely at the sole discretion of Sarah Walton Photography.
