Terms & Conditions
A. Session Fee
Client agrees to pay photographer a non-refundable retainer of $50.00 at the time of booking the session. At the time the contract takes effect, 224 Photography shall reserve the date and time agreed upon, and not make any other reservations or accept any other clients for said date and time. For this reason, in the event the client cancels the contract for any reason, all monies paid shall be retained by 224 Photography in order to offset its loss of business. Sessions are not considered booked until retainer fees are paid, and contracts are signed.
B. Location Costs & Fees
If there are any costs/fees associated with the location the client has chosen for their session, you, the client, will be responsible for those fees. The photographer will not guarantee or arrange payment on any location. Session fee covers travel within 30 minutes of Statesboro, GA. Any location outside of these limits will be subject to an additional charge of $.52/mile as part of the agreement.
Please be prepared for your session date and time. Punctuality is extremely important for your session. If client is running late please notify photographer of tardiness. Time due to tardiness will not be made up during session. If client arrives 30 minutes late for a one hour session the session will only last for 30 minutes. Additional time can not be purchased. If client desires more time, a new session will need to be scheduled for another date.
If an illness or an emergency prevents a photo session from taking place, client may reschedule their session at least 24 hours prior to their shoot without penalty. Should client fail to give 24 hours notice, or decide to completely cancel the shoot, the session fee is still required. Photographer reserves the right to reschedule due to illness, weather, equipment malfunction, or other circumstances beyond their control.
In the event you are just not happy with your images from the session re-shoots are determined at the discretion of the photographer. Re-shoots will not be given for poor choices of clothing, make-up, hair or weather related issues, or by not following the recommendations of the photographer.
F. Image Selection/Proofs/Sneak Peek
The photographer will be responsible for selecting final images to present to the client. Selected images will represent photographers best work, and align with photographers signature style. Proofing of client’s images will be available for viewing within 2-3 weeks of session date in a password-protected web-gallery. In some instances Proofing gallery can be delivered before 2 weeks but will not exceed 3 weeks for delivery. A sneak peek of 5-7 images will be shared with the client within 3 days of the completed session.
Due to the custom nature of each session, all sales are final. Client must be absolutely sure of their purchase. Once a print order is placed, there can be no changes to that order. However, the client does have the ability to place additional orders.
All images will be available for ordering for six (6) months following client session date. After six (6) months, all images will be purged from photographer’s hard-drive, except as needed for promotional purposes, to be determined by photographer at photographer’s sole discretion. Photographer is not responsible for loss or damage to the digital files due to circumstances beyond photographer’s control.
All payments are due in full unless payment arrangements have been made. Session balances are due PRIOR to the session taking place. Orders will not be processed until payment in full is received. If client has arranged a payment plan, order will be placed after the final payment has been received.
Photographer is not responsible for the damage of portraits after delivery to client, including damage caused during transit by US mail. Client assumes all responsibility for the safety of all portraits upon receipt. All portraits sent via USPS can be insured and require delivery confirmation upon client’s request and at client’s expense.
K. Model Release
Photographer kindly asks that all clients sign the model release so that photographer may display the images from their session on photographer’s website, www.224photography.com, company Facebook page, Instagram, and for using for marketing/promotional/advertising purposes.
