Retainers & Cancellation Fees
Retainers ("deposits") are non-refundable. In the event of cancellation, the retainer paid is non-refundable. It shall be liquidated for damages to the Photographer in the event of a cancellation, or breach of contract by the Client. No date is reserved until a retainer is received. The retainer shall be applied towards the total cost of the service to be rendered. The balance of the complete package price must be paid before or on the day of event. If final payment is not received, the Photographer will not be expected to attend said event. Additional custom orders (reprints, enlargements, albums) must be paid in full at the time of order.
There shall be no refund of retainer after the signing of the Agreement and the reservation of the photography date. If the event is cancelled within two weeks of the date, the client shall pay 25% of the contract balance due to the high probability that the Photographer will not be able to further book that date. Once a balance is paid, it is non-refundable. Any other arrangements shall be discussed between the Clients and the Photographer. All arrangements will be put in writing. Cancellation must be in writing, even if a phone call was made to inform the Photographer of the cancellation.
