- Deposit and Payment. Session fees are due upon booking and are non-refundable. Session fees cover time and talent only and secure your session date and current pricing. Images and products are sold separately.
- Cancellation. In the event of an illness, please call as soon as possible to reschedule. Remember When Photography maintains the right to reschedule if needed due to inclement weather, illness, emergency, etc. Requests for rescheduling or re-shoots are granted only at the photographer’s discretion. This decision must be made before the session or within the first 20 minutes of the session.
- Travel and Additional Fees. The client is responsible for covering additional fees and costs related to location choice (admission fees, parking, etc.). Travel up to 25 miles from DL14 is included. There is an additional 40p per mile beyond the 25-mile radius. Time and travel above this will be invoiced (contact me for pricing).
- Electronic Devices. Cameras, mobile phone cameras, and camcorders are not permitted during sessions, unless it is a behind the scenes shot and I, the photographer, am in it.
- Modifications. If the client has a request for a small alteration of an image, please let the photographer know when you place your order. The photographer can address minor changes at no cost (fix blemishes, tighter crop, etc.), but more involved requests are billed at £10/hr. The photographer will let you know if there will be extra charges before work begins. Once the requested changes are made, charges apply regardless of whether the final product is purchased, as the time has already been taken to make the requested changes.
- Payment. The photographer will not begin to order design work or process orders until payment is complete.
- Digital Images. If the client purchases the digital download of images, Remember When Photography will provide detailed printing instructions. To ensure the best print quality, avoid altering the images before printing. The photographer is not responsible for printing errors or for quality of prints or products printed elsewhere. Digital files will come with complete printing rights, but the copyright still remains with the photographer, so the image may not be edited or scanned for reproducing.
- Returned Cheques – Cheques returned by the bank, for any reason, will be charged a £10.00 service charge, and sessions/orders will be cancelled if they are not paid in full within five days of notification.
