For all regular sessions a 50% non-fundable session retainer is required to schedule a session and hold the date and serves as a cancellation fee.
For wedding packages, a 50% event retainer is due immediately to book and hold the date of your event and also serves as a cancellation fee. Thereafter, half of the remaining balance is due one month before the date of the wedding and the final balance is due one week before the date of the wedding.
PAYMENT: All retainer fees must be paid immediately and session and other packages (plus taxes) can be paid via money order, certified check, paypal, cash, Visa, MasterCard or AMEX.
CANCELLATION POLICY: For regular sessions, client forefeits their session retainer and the 50% paid to book the session date will act as a cancellation fee.
For weddings and events, if for any reason the Client cancels before the wedding date, the Photographer will keep the the event retainer fee paid to hold the wedding or event date as a cancellation fee. Cancellation must be made in writing, signed by the contracted parties, and sent via Certified Mail by the United States Post Office. However, if the client requires to change the wedding date, I will do my best to accommodate and no cancellation fee will be charged as long as the new date is available and within five months of the original event date. Otherwise the new date will be subject to current rates if applicable. If I am not available for the new date, the original contract will be cancelled and subject to the cancellation policy.
