The full amount OR 50% of the mini-session rate is considered the 'retainer' for all mini-sessions. A retainer fee is required for all portrait sessions. This is a non-refundable retainer. In the event of cancellation, the retainer paid is non-refundable. It shall be liquidated for damages to the Photographer in the event of a cancellation, or breach of contract by the Client. No date is reserved until a retainer is received. The retainer shall be applied towards the total cost of the service to be rendered. The balance (if any) of the complete package price must be paid before the day of event. If final payment is not received, the Photographer will not be expected to attend said event.
There shall be no refund of retainer after the signing of the Agreement and the reservation of the photography date. Once a balance is paid, it is non-refundable. Any other arrangements shall be discussed between the Client and the Photographer. All arrangements will be put in writing. Cancellation must be in writing even if a phone call was made to inform the Photographer of the cancellation.
In the event of poor weather, mini sessions will be rescheduled. Mini sessions are limited therefore they can not be rescheduled for any other reason. In the event that the client(s) can no longer use the mini session purchased, they may sell it to another person/family but only for the date and time chosen.
I, the undersigned, agree to the terms above.
