A. Session Fees
Client agrees to pay Cassie Clarkson a non-refundable retainer of $200 (in studio) or $300 (on location) at the time of booking to secure their appointment date and time. Your session fee covers your pre-session consultation, planning and customization of your session, the time and talent of Cassie Clarkson, a 1-2 hour photography session, basic retouching and creative editing of images, as determined by Cassie Clarkson, and a post-session premiere and ordering session. Additional editing is available at additional expense to be determined by photographer. Additional shooting time may be added for $100 per hour. Additional prints, merchandise, or digital images are available for purchase. No digital images or merchandise is included with the $200 fee.
B. Post Session Premiere and Ordering Session
Your post session premiere and ordering session will be scheduled roughly two weeks after your photography session at the studio in Rushville OH. Your proofs will be presented to you at that time. All decision-making persons must be present for the ordering session. Additional fees will apply if the client does not place their order at the ordering session. Payment in full is expected at time of order placement; unless payment arrangements have been made and agreed upon in writing. Due to the uniquely personal nature of photography products, no refunds/returns/exchanges can be honored with the exception of product defect.
Only a small fraction of the photographs taken will actually be edited and presented to you (the client) as proofs. The minimum number of proofs guaranteed to you is ten and this is contingent upon the cooperation of everyone involved in the session. Conditions beyond the control of Cassie Clarkson may impact the number of proofs made available to you. Sessions involving large groups of people, as well as sessions involving uncooperative children and/or pets will likely result in fewer proofs.
Unedited RAW files are never offered or presented.
I (the client) understand that all agreed upon deliverable items are contingent upon the client performing certain actions and cooperating with Cassie Clarkson, she and any of her agents or representatives will not be held liable if the client's neglect leads to a compromise of what has been promised. This includes but is not limited to the behavior of children and pets.
C. Location Costs & Fees
The studio is located in Rushville Ohio. I am available for travel to most locations in Central or Southeastern Ohio. Some additional charges may apply.
If an illness or situation 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 deposit/retainer fee is forfeited and will not be refunded. Photographer reserves the right to reschedule due to illness, weather, equipment malfunction, or other circumstances beyond their control. The number of times a client may be reschedule will be determined by Cassie Clarkson on an individual basis.
