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 booking fee (retainer/deposit) equal to 50% of the fee for photography services is due at the time of booking/signing of contract. The remaining final payment is due on or before the date of the wedding. Failure to submit payment by its due date may result in a full cancellation of your shoot and a forfeiture of your deposit. Late payments are assessed at a rate of 10% of the remaining balance due per week late. Accepted methods of payment include cash or PayPal invoice. Client is held legally 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 comply with state employment laws.
Additional finished photos beyond the number of images included in your package are available for purchase at the rate outlined in your written agreement. Payment for additional photos is due at the time of order. Retouching work will not begin on photos until payment has been fulfilled.
Standard retouching included with selected final images includes color and exposure correction as well as the removal of blemishes and other non-permanent aspects of the model's physical appearance, smoothing out lightly wrinkled clothing, and the removal of minor but distracting details of the composition, background, product, or environment. In an effort to celebrate diverse types of beauty and to responsibly confront the negative effects of unrealistic beauty standards depicted by the media over the last several decades, the photographer does not offer retouching in which a subject's body type, height, weight, skin color, or age are dramatically altered.
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.
All fees related to location rental permits, including but not limited to insurance (if required for the shoot), must be acquired and paid for by the client per the individual needs of their project in consultation with the photographer.
Studio + Set Rentals
If your shoot requires the use of a studio or set, please inquire with photographer prior to booking to discuss options for local studios. Studio rental fees are not included in rates and must be arranged prior to booking. Photographer is happy to provide suggestions for local studios and sets that offer competitive rates.
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 on the same date final payment is due. 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 | Rates Vary
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 | $1000
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.
