Expectations

  • The shoot will start at the predetermined time.  You should be prepared to shoot at that time.   This means that wardrobe, hair and makeup should be done prior to shoot time.
  •  
  • Photoshoots are not opportunities to get "friendly" with the photographer.  I don't mind shooting couples doing whatever it is that couples do but a shoot is a professional arrangement and it will be kept that way.
  •  
  • 50% payment is due in advance to book the shoot.  Refunds only provided for cancellations prior to 24 hours of the shoot.  No-shows and cancellations within 24 hrs of the shoot forfeit down payment.
  •  
  • Payment of the balance is due at the start of the shoot.  It is my duty to take awesome pictures.  It is not my duty to chase people for payment.
  •  
  • If we set up a negotiated shooting duration then please respect that.  If you choose to go over our established time then extra fees will apply.
