These are the terms and conditions our business operates on.

1. Upon signature the photographer reserves the time and date agreed upon, and will not take other
reservations for that time and date. For this reason, the retainer (deposit) is non-refundable if the wedding is cancelled for any reason including but not limited to acts of God: fire, extreme weather, break-up, and/or financial hardship. Retainer is to be paid at the time of parties signing this contract. Reservation retainer is applied towards the contracted wedding photography package upon completion of this contract. If for any reason, the client changes the event date, the retainer can be transferred to a new event date if the photographer has the date available: otherwise there is no refund for retainer paid.

2. The contract for the event terminates at the time established by the photographer. The clock will start at the time that the photographer arrives at the customer’s house; if the start of the session is not at the customer’s house, the clock would start at the photographer’s first arrival location. We recommend punctuality and protocol organization so we can get the best pictures of the ceremony. If the customer requests additional photography time at the event, the cost will be $200.00 per additional hour incurred (a period between one (1) minute up to sixty (60) minutes after the contract ends counts as one (1) hour.)

3. The photographer requires a minimum of one (1) month to process, edit and deliver the complete ceremony session. The customer must understand that sessions are worked by date. The photographer is working the ceremonies on her list in order and will deliver the sessions chronologically. The photographer is not obligated to deliver the finished product in a month or less.

4. Even if the photographer tries to do every photo required by the customer, the customer must understand that weddings/ceremonies/receptions might lose control due to reasons beyond the control of the photographer. We will try our absolute best to take every picture befitting of a wedding day, so long as the conditions allow it.

5. If the photographer cannot comply to the terms stated in this contract for any reason including but not limited to an act of God, fire, extreme weather, emergency or any condition beyond the control of any of the parties, the photographer will refund the amount paid off (retainer non-refundable.) If the photographed material is damaged or there is a file loss, the photographer will incur no other responsibility except the payment refund.
