BOOKING AND PAYMENT POLICIES
A written agreement signed by both parties is required for booking. Shoot dates and times are not reserved unless agreement has been signed by both parties and a deposit has been paid by client. An electronic copy of your written agreement and an electronic receipt for your deposit will always be provided.
A nonrefundable retainer deposit equal to 50% of the total fee for photography services is due at the time of booking/signing of contract. The remaining final payment is due at least 24 hours prior to start of the event. Failure to submit payment by its due date may result in a cancellation of your shoot and a forfeiture of deposit. Late payments are assessed at a rate of 5% of the remaining balance due per week late. Accepted methods of payment include PayPal, Venmo, Zelle, cash, or business check. Client is responsible for any penalty fees for non-sufficient funds related to their payment(s). Personal checks are not accepted. An electronic receipt for all payment(s) will always be provided. In the event that Photographer is responsible for payment to independent contractors and subcontractors, including photo assistants, second shooters, etc., fees for those contractors are due in full at the time of booking in order to ensure compliance with California employment laws.
Rescheduling requests are not guaranteed and depend solely on the schedule and availability of the photographer. In the event of rescheduling, a new date must be agreed upon in writing within 31 calendar days of the original date booked. Rescheduled shoots require a revised written agreement signed by both parties, and may require additional fees depending on permits, studio rentals, etc.. Client is responsible for any studio or location fees associated with the canceled date. Please note that rescheduling a shoot does not affect the due dates of your original payment schedule.
Because the photographer is self-employed and relies on bookings to maintain a full-time photography business and pay bills on time, all bookings are final. Rescheduled shoot dates depend solely on the availability of the photographer. In the event of a complete cancellation, payment is due in full on the original date agreed upon in your written agreement.
Travel, Parking, and Lodging Fees
All parking and travel fees will be billed to the client after the shoot and must be reimbursed to the photographer prior to delivery of final images. Shoots that require travel beyond 20 miles of downtown Los Angeles will be billed a mileage rate of 53 cents per additional mile after the included 20 miles. Airfare and overnight hotel accommodations for locations beyond 100 miles of downtown Los Angeles as well as out-of-state and international shoots must be arranged and paid for by the client prior to the shoot. Overnight accommodations are required for full-day shoots at locations further than a four-hour drive from downtown Los Angeles.
Photo Assistants + Second Photographers | Varies
Photo assistants and/or second photographers are often necessary at larger events in order to capture every special moment. Fees for assistants and second photographers are billed to the client at an additional hourly rate and must be agreed upon prior to booking and paid for in full at the time of booking, in addition to the booking deposit. Please inquire with photographer for recommendations about the specific needs of your project.
Nondisclosure + Confidentiality Agreement | +$1500
For customers who are concerned about privacy, a nondisclosure agreement is optional for an additional fee. Your names and photographs will not be used in my portfolio and the event will never be publicly discussed. NDA fee requirement is waived for individuals in undercover law enforcement and other similar situations with verifiable proof of circumstances.
