  • All bookings require a 25% deposit to secure your date unless otherwise stated in the contract.

  • Final payment for all weddings is due 7 days prior to the event. Clients may choose to pay in installments leading up to the event.
  • If a client books a wedding package with an included engagement session and is not satisfied with the engagement photos, a full refund will be provided, and the contract will be dissolved, provided the cancellation and refund are requested within two weeks of the engagement photos being delivered. This policy is not available after the final payment is made or the booked wedding date has passed, whichever comes sooner.

3. Cancellations and Refunds

  • Cancellations must be made in writing. Deposits are non-refundable.
  • If the Photographer secures another engagement for the same date, any payments made will be retained as liquidated damages relative to the new engagement value.
  • Full refund policy applies to unsatisfactory engagement sessions as stated above, within the specified timeframe.

4. Contract Outline

Cancellation: Once the Client signs this agreement, the Photographer will reserve the wedding date. If the Client cancels the Photographer’s services, the Photographer will retain any payments made. The Photographer will attempt to secure a replacement engagement for the wedding date and will retain any deficiency in the value of the new engagement relative to this agreement.

Specific Shots: The Photographer does not guarantee any specific photograph or shot. Clients should provide a list of desired photographs at least one week before the wedding date.

Meals: Clients will provide the Photographer (and assistant) with a full meal on the wedding day.

Exclusivity: The Photographer is the exclusive still photographer hired by the Client for the wedding events.

Liability Limits: The Photographer’s liability is limited to the payments made under this agreement.

Replacement Photographer: The Photographer may substitute another competent professional in case of illness or emergency.

Ownership & Copyright: The Photographer owns all rights, including copyrights, to the photographs.

Client’s Use of Photographs: Clients may use the photographs for personal, non-commercial purposes, with proper credit to the Photographer when customary. Commercial use or editing without consent is prohibited.

Model Release: Clients grant the Photographer unrestricted, perpetual, and irrevocable permission to use the photographs for any legal purpose worldwide.

Choice of Law and Arbitration: California law governs this agreement. Disputes will be resolved by arbitration in California by the American Arbitration Association. Small claims can be asserted in Los Angeles, CA.

Miscellaneous: This agreement is the final, exclusive, and complete understanding regarding the Photographer’s services. Modifications must be in writing. Invalid provisions do not affect the agreement’s validity. A party’s failure to enforce a provision does not waive that provision.
