All of our photography sessions require some type of retainer. The prices may vary due to the type of session or arrangement with each particular client & photographer. Retainers are only refundable for 24 hours after the initial transaction and go toward your total balance. A retainer is not a complete payment it is simply to reserve your date and time. Retainers expire after 30 days so be sure to set your date no later than 30 days after booking you session. Any payments made are an agreement to all of the terms above and or below
When booking a session your time starts promptly at whatever time slot was booked. There is a 15 minute grace period for all sessions to begin & end. Sessions extend no more than 15 minutes over the scheduled time and start no later than 15 minutes past the scheduled time. All late sessions are subject to immediate cancellation. If additional time is required, the additional time must be paid for in full at the time of request and billed at $99/hr
Booking appointments can only be scheduled for Tuesday-Thursday between 12-4pm.
Theses appointments are the time you come back to the studio and select your favorite images. These images will be already retouched and will be delivered to you the moment your full payment is completed.
Some sessions include a certain amount of images. In the event that you'd like to have even more pictures retouched, awesome! Additional retouching is $49 per image and is billed with a new invoice & requires additional time that is do be determined by that particular invoice.. Photographs from your sessions will remain available to you for no longer than 7 days after your session is completed. After you have made your final selection any unedited images will be discarded. Any requests for additional images will be sent over to our "BOOK A SESSION" section.
