Booking and deposit

The Studio must have a non-refundable 1,250 deposit ($2,500 for weekend and holiday bookings and $625 for headshots) no later than 14 days prior to the scheduled photoshoot and to secure the photoshoot date and time

To secure the specified date and time for your photoshoot, it is imperative that you remit the booking deposit in the amount of $1,250 ($2,500 for weekend or holiday bookings and $625 for headshots and mini sessions). This deposit is mandatory to confirm your chosen date and to preemptively prevent any potential schedule conflict from other clients. The retainer must be settled no later than 14 days prior to the scheduled photoshoot, contingent upon the availability of the chosen date. The Studio reserves the prerogative to engage with another client should the retainer not be received within the stipulated timeframe.

Furthermore, this deposit serves the purpose of reserving and compensating the time of the makeup artist, a photo assistant, and the selected photoshoot location. Additionally, it covers the photographer’s time allocated for planning the photoshoot, encompassing consultations, wardrobe styling, and project planning pertinent to the photoshoot. It is explicitly emphasized that the deposit is non-negotiable for cash substitution. All deposits are non-refundable and will be applied towards your final invoice. Any supplementary travel fees are also due at this time.

cancelling and Rescheduling

The Studio must have at least 14 days’ notice prior to rescheduling a photoshoot

Once your non-refundable deposit is paid and the photoshoot date and time is secured, the Studio will reserve and hold that time for the Client. If a Client needs to reschedule, and the Studio receives a notice at least 14 days before the photoshoot, the deposit paid will then be applied and transferred to the new photoshoot date in full. If you cancel within less than 14 days of the scheduled time, miss, or cancel your appointment, the initial amount shall be forfeited, we will charge a cancellation fee of $250, and the Client will pay a new deposit during any future bookings. The deposit will expire within 1 year and must be used within 12 months of issue.

Force Majeure Event

Events beyond reasonable control

In case of a Force Majeure event (for example, a natural disaster, act of war or terrorism, riot, labor condition, governmental action, or other unforeseen emergencies) that was beyond the party’s reasonable control, we will work with you to reschedule your photoshoot. The deposit will then be applied to the new photoshoot date in full. The Client must provide sufficient and valid proof of force majeure within 7 days of force majeure. Once causes for such exemption of liabilities are rectified and remedied, each Party agrees to resume the performance of this Agreement with best efforts.

invoices and Payments

The Client must make all payments before any images and products are released by the Studio. No changes after the order is placed.

After the photoshoot is completed, the Client and the Photographer will meet either in person or via Zoom to review and select the best images from the photoshoot. At this time, the Client will select any products, product collections, Wall Art, and add-on items, the final product invoice will be finalized, and the invoice due. A payment arrangement is available upon request at the discretion of the Studio. Both the Client and the Studio will agree on the payment terms at this time.

The client agrees to pay in full the agreed-upon invoice total for products before receiving any products. This may include digital images, wall art, folio boxes, and more. Once an order has been placed as agreed upon, the Studio is unable to cancel any order and is considered non-cancelable, non-returnable, and non-reschedulable.

If a reschedule cannot be agreed upon, the Studio shall return the retainer to the Client and shall have no further liability.

Travel fees and overage fees
