Images

4.0 GDPR legislation states that a photograph may contain some form of personal data where they can be processed to allow “the unique identification or authentication of a natural person”. Photography by Louisa Jane will never photograph an individual as a means of unique identification or authentication unless contracted to do so. Guests at weddings appear in photos taken by Photography by Louisa Jane as a part of the documentation of the event. Guests captured in portraits or in group photos do so as part of the event and their rights are protected by Photography by Louisa Jane as detailed in this privacy policy.

4.1 In terms of explicit GDPR compliance, wedding clients and guests are photographed within the parameters of GDPR legislation on the basis of ‘legitimate interests’. The taking of photographs of wedding guests when viewed as a form of processing personal data is necessary for the legitimate interests of Photography by Louisa Jane as a photography business unless there is a good reason to protect a given individual’s personal data which overrides those legitimate interests.

4.2 Operating within the parameters of legitimate interests as laid out in GDPR legislation, the disproportionate effort involved in providing privacy policy information to all wedding guests at the event and the degree to which it would distract us from performing our job renders it infeasible to do. Wedding clients are therefore requested in their contract to direct their guests to read this privacy policy in advance of the event and to advise them to contact us in advance with any concerns around the processing of their personal data, namely being photographed.

4.3 We may display any photographs to promote Photography by Louisa Jane on  our website and blog, on social media, on wedding photography related websites, in exhibitions, in advertising, brochures, magazine articles and other such material, providing that the images used are used lawfully and without damage to Photography by Louisa Jane’s client(s). The rights of the people captured in these photographs are protected by Photography by Louisa Jane as detailed in this privacy policy.

After the request has been made, Photography by Louisa Jane will take the necessary step to remove the image online. 

5.2 The Personal Information provided to The Site shall not be used or shared unless instructed to do so.
