FOR WEDDING/EVENT CLIENTS

  •  If the wedding/event is cancelled in its entirety the 40% is non refundable but will remain on the   account as a credit for other photography services or as gift certificates for friends and family. If the 60% has not been paid 2 weeks prior at this point then it will not  remain due. If the 60% has been paid that portion will be refunded in its entirety within 30 days of the cancellation.

 

Extra Wedding/Event Time:

Photographer(s) meals at Wedding/Events:

 

  • If the event is longer than 4 hours in length a meal must be provided for the photographer(s) during the reception. No seating is required at a formal table. Photographer(s) usually take the meal into the kitchen to eat while guests eating. (This is done, about the same time guests eat, because usually no one likes their pictures taken while they’re eating.)
