Your session fee covers the time and skill of photographer and creative editing of images, as determined by the photographer, and 30 (10 for mini sessions) images to be downloaded by client via adrianecosta.pixieset.com. Additional digital images may be available for purchase. Please be sure to review all pricing details. Pricing information can be found on the "Investment" page at www.adrianecostaphotography.com. There are no refunds or exchanges of any kind due to the custom nature of portrait photography. Sessions located greater than 30 minutes outside of Danville, CA are subject to a $50 travel fee and $25 bridge fee (if applicable).
Adriane Costa Photography retains all copyrights to all images created during client’s session and shall have the exclusive right to make reproductions. The Photographer shall only make reproductions for the Client or for the Photographer’s portfolio, samples, self-promotions, entry in photographic contests or art exhibitions, editorial use, website, or for display within or on the outside of the Photographer’s studio.
C. Client Usage
A print release is provided with digital files to print portraits for personal use. The print release does not allow publication of your portraits (i.e. entering in contests), selling or altering of your images without the photographer’s written permission.
Client agrees to pay photographer a $50 deposit at the time of booking to secure their appointment date and time. This is a non-refundable retainer fee that goes toward your session. The remaining balance is due the day of the session. All payments are due in full upon the day of the session unless payment arrangements have been made. Deposit and balance can be paid by check, Paypal, or Venmo. Orders will not be processed until payment in full is received.
Re-shoots are determined at the discretion of the photographer. Re-shoots and refunds will not be given for poor choices of clothing, make-up, hair, or by not following the recommendations of the photographer. In the unlikely event that the finished product from a portrait session is unusable due to technical problems, (camera failure or exposure problems), Photographer will reshoot at no additional charge.
*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, this session fee is forfeited and will not be refunded. Photographer reserves the right to reschedule due to illness, weather, equipment malfunction, or other circumstances beyond her control.
When you book with me, you are giving me full reign over artistic editing of photos. I will be choosing the best of the images to edit and present to you so if you see anything that you don’t care for during the session, PLEASE speak up. It won’t hurt my feelings as I want to make sure I’m providing you with pictures that you will love. My editing workflow includes brightening, removing any bumps or blemishes, softening skin to even out blotchiness and give a smooth texture, and sharpening to bring out features. My workflow does NOT include ‘digital surgery’ or changes to Clients’ physical appearance or shape. If you are opposed to any of this, my style of photography may not be a good fit for you.
*After six (6) months, all images will be purged from photographer’s hard-drive, except as needed for promotional purposes, to be determined by photographer at photographer’s sole discretion. Photographer is not responsible for loss or damage to the digital files due to circumstances beyond photographer’s control.
G. Artistic Interpretation
Upon viewing samples of my work, you have decided to invest in my services to photograph you because you are confident that I can give you results which you will cherish. There is no knowing what photos will be produced from this endeavor simply because this is an event in the future. I am unable to make promises regarding if models cooperate and smile during the work produced from our endeavor. As an artist, I reserve the right to artistically interpret what I see and in what ways I choose to photograph a scene. This is my artistic interpretation and vision as an artist.
