An electronic copy of your written agreement and an electronic receipt for your retainer deposit will always be provided.

Payment Policy

A nonrefundable retainer deposit equal to 25% of the total fee is due at the time of booking/signing of contract and will be applied toward the final payment. Payment for props, locations, rentals, and subcontractors (assistants, crew, etc.) must be paid in full at the time of booking, in addition to the retainer fee. The remaining final payment, less the retainer deposit, is due upon delivery of proofs.

Any payments submitted after their due date are billed at a penalty rate of 5% of the remaining balance per week late. Accepted methods of payment include PayPal, Venmo, Zelle, business check, or cash at the discretion of the photographer. Personal checks are not accepted. Payments via business check are not considered paid until cleared, which may result in a 3-5 day delay of image delivery depending on the bank's processing time. Client is responsible for all fees for non-sufficient funds related to their payment(s). An electronic receipt for all payment(s) will always be provided.

Additional Photos
