Privacy Policy

The policy: This privacy policy is for this website; and governs the privacy of its visitors. This policy will explain areas of this website that may affect your privacy and personal details, how we process, collect, manage and store those details and how your rights are adhered to.



This website,, collects private user data using the contact form: which generates emails sent to: The data from these forms is emailed to the address listed above and also stored on the website server. The website server is accessible by the website administrators for Pixieset. Pixieset does not access or share this data other than by request from Tai Petrofsky, owner of Tai Sophia Photography. 


Tai Sophia Photography does not engage in email marketing specific to our services, aside from an occasional (up to 3x a year) update on special events. Your personal details will not be used for such marketing purposes nor will they be passed onto any third parties.


Tai Sophia Photography creates a client gallery for each client to whom photos are delivered as part of the services contracted. Tai Sophia Photography's client galleries are hosted by Pixieset. To visit a client gallery, no entry of personal data is needed.


Although we only look to include quality, safe and relevant external links, users are advised to adopt a policy of caution before clicking any external web links mentioned throughout this website. We cannot guarantee or verify the contents of any externally linked website despite our best efforts. Users should therefore note that they click on external links at their own risk and we cannot be held liable for any damages or implications caused by visiting any external links mentioned.


We take care over the processes around looking after personal data stored on our physical systems. Tai Sophia Photography holds the following personal data of clients: i) names ii) addresses iii) phone numbers iv) email addresses within soft copy as well as soft copy wedding client day plan documents. Soft copy contracts and day plans are safely stored within my password protected home office MacBook Pro. Client photos are safely stored within my password protected home office iMac and backed up to encrypted external hard drives.


Guests at weddings appear in photos taken by Tai Sophia Photography as a part of the visual recording of the event in photos. Guests captured in portraits or in group photos do so as part of the event and their rights are protected by Tai Sophia Photography as detailed in this privacy policy. 

The taking of photographs of wedding guests when viewed as a form of processing personal data is necessary for the legitimate interests of Tai Sophia Photography as a photography business unless there is a good reason to protect a given individual's personal data which overrides those legitimate interests. Operating within the parameters of legitimate interests, 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.


We adopt a safe and responsible Social Media Policy. While we may have official profiles on social media platforms users are advised to verify the authenticity of such profiles before engaging with, or sharing information with such profiles. We will never ask for personal details on social media platforms. Users are advised to conduct themselves appropriately when engaging with us on social media


To enable the continued work of Tai Sophia Photography, I reserve the right to select photographs to be used for promotional purposes. To promote Tai Sophia Photography, photographs may be displayed on the Tai Sophia Photography website, blog, social media and on brochures/flyers that promote the services of Tai Sophia Photography. Photographs occasionally will be submitted to lifestyle photography blogs, on lifestyle photography related websites and magazine articles; providing that the images used are used lawfully and without damage to Tai Sophia Photography's client(s). The rights of the people captured in these photographs are protected by Tai Sophia Photography as detailed in this privacy policy. Tai Sophia Photography respects the privacy of every client and therefore every client photographed by Tai Sophia Photography, must consent for photographs of themselves to be displayed, as per their contracts.


Anyone photographed by Tai Sophia Photography, whether a client or wedding guest, and whether past or current may withdraw consent for a photograph in which they appear to be displayed. The process for this is to email Tai Sophia Photography at  specifying the photo in question. With that request, Tai Sophia Photography will then remove the photo from online and printed display wherever it appears.


By clicking 'submit' on your contact form, you hereby are consenting to Tai Sophia Photography contacting your selected email address to respond to your enquiry within 72 hours. Clients are reminded that if you do not wish for your email to be kept in my personal file, then please state so.
