 **PAYMENTS AND BOOKING FEES: All photo shoots require a non refundable retainer of a minimum of $50 and up to 50% of your booking fee. The retainer is required to book and hold the date of your event and also serves as a cancellation fee. This fee is non refundable upon booking a date.  All remaining balances are due on the same day of your shoot. Upon completion, all shoots are non refundable for any reason.

 

*I accept VenMo, Zelle QuickPay, PayPal, Cash and Checks.   ***No personal checks, corporate okay.
 
 

ALL BOOKINGS ARE CONFIRMED VIA EMAIL: I will send you an email confirmation based on all the information you have provided and upon everything we agree upon.  It is the clients responsibility to make sure all the booking information is correct.  Make sure you have provided me with the correct time, date, location and duration.  Also check the fees are correct and any other pertinent information.  If you provide me with misinformation and I show up at the date and time given by the client this will forfeit your booking retainer and you may still be liable for the remainder of the session fee.  

 

**CANCELLATION: If the client cancels their photo session for any reason the retainer paid to book the session and hold the date will not be refunded

 

SPECIAL REQUEST: Such as names that should or should not be used in your personal gallery must be communicated at the time of booking.  If you fail to communicate this I will change it one time as a courtesy, it's then up to you to use the new link and password.  There will be no switching gallery links and names back and forth.  It's a one time change and you will be required to use the new link that you requested.  If you want your gallery to be locked from public viewing it will be considered the same as releasing my copyright and it will cost double the session fee.  Otherwise you will own full right to reprint.  *Note that Rights to Reprint is not the same as Full Copyright.  More Copyright info below.

 

FAILURE TO PERFORM: The parties agree to cheerful cooperation and communication for the best possible result within the definition of this assignment. Due to the limited and subjective nature of the event, the Photographer cannot be held responsible for requested photographs not taken or missed, lack of coverage resulting from weather conditions, or schedule complications caused by but not limited to, anyone in or at the event, or by the church or location restrictions. The Photographer is not responsible for lost photo opportunities due to other cameras or flashes, the lateness of the clients or other principles. The Photographer is not responsible for the lack of coverage due to weather conditions, scheduling complications due to lateness of individuals, rules and restrictions of venue, or the rendering of decorations of the location. It is acknowledged that any lists submitted to the Photographer will be used for organizational purposes only and in no way represent photography that will actually be produced. The Photographer will do its best to fulfill all requests but can make no guarantees all images will be delivered. The Photographer recommends that the Client point out important individuals for informal or candid photographs to the photographer during portrait shooting that they wish to have photographed. The Photographer will not be held accountable for not photographing desired people if there is no one to assist in identifying people or gathering people for photographs. The Photographer is not responsible if key individuals fail to appear or cooperate during photography sessions or for missed images due to details not revealed to the Photographer.  Clients are responsible for all location fees, parking and permits.

If the Photographer or its assigns cannot perform this Agreement due to a fire, casualty, strike or other civil disturbances, Acts of God, including but not limited to, road closures, severe traffic, fire, terrorism or other causes beyond the control of the parties, then the Photographer shall return any moneys paid by the Client, less retainer fee and expenses, but shall have no further liability with respect to the Agreement. This limitation of liability shall also apply in the event that photographic materials are damaged, lost
through camera malfunction, compact flash card malfunction, or otherwise lost or damaged without the fault on the part of the Photographer. The limit of liability for a partial loss of originals shall be a prorated amount of the exposures lost based on the percentage of total number of originals.

 

PHOTO ACCESS: Your photos will be online for 1 year.  Please download your photos on your computer, bookmark them on your computer, burn them to a CD or thumb drive and create an email folder and save the email I send you for future access.  I suggest all of the above.  If you lost the link to your gallery you will find them in the client gallery under your type of service you hired me for.   Or simply do a search in the search bar.   If you still need me to email you a link and password there will be a $25 fee so please follow the instructions above.

 

PHOTO ACCESS AFTER 1 YEAR: There is a $75 search fee but it is not guaranteed that I will still have them.  Once we shoot it is your responsibility to save your photos. From time to time I need to free up storage room on my site and do not save all my work. If you need me to take the time to find your photos and email you the link again, I do charge for my time.    This can be avoided by following all the steps above.
