Marriage in Motion cannot guarantee coverage of any particular individual or group during the day.
g. We use broadcast quality well maintained equipment, however we will not be liable for any battery failures, equipment failure and or material defects, which are beyond our control.

Every effort is made to ensure perfect colour and lighting reproduction, but certain conditions may not be accurate such as mixed indoor and external lighting, hard shadows, and low lighting conditions. With these factors beyond our control, we will endeavor to produce the best image possible. In the case that a particular segment of the event is either not recorded, partially recorded, or not a part of the final edited film, it is at the sole discretion of Marriage in Motion. If something occurred at the wedding that the Client does not want to appear on the final film, the Client must instruct Marriage in Motion in writing before post production begins.
The Client must provide a safe working environment and is responsible for any damage to our equipment by their guests and will be liable to pay such expenses for replacement or repairs. In restrictive conditions such as rain, extreme temperatures and humidity, adequate shelter must be provided to the Cinematographer.
If video coverage is greater than 5 hours, the Client must provide a hot meal to the camera operative. It is very important that this be served at the same time as any other food is served to guests. Vendor meals provided at any other time i.e at the end of guest service may affect what footage we are able available to capture.
