Session Reservation Fee
Upon execution of this Agreement, your non-refundable session reservation fee of $150 for studio sessions or $250 for outdoor sessions is due to reserve photography services for your requested session date and time. Upon receipt of and as consideration for your session reservation fee, Mark Stevens Photography shall remove your requested date and time from calendar availability for other clients or potential clients.
Due to your session reservation’s exclusivity, please note that your session reservation fee is non-refundable. You may move your appointment with seven days notice with no penalty. Appointments canceled with fewer than seven days notice and no-shows will forfeit the session fee. If you are more than 20 minutes late you will be considered a no-show.
In the event you are using a gift certificate to schedule your session, you agree to pay a $150 missed session fee to reschedule a no-show or last minute cancellation. Your gift certificate can not be applied toward this fee.
Your Portrait Session will last approximately one hour and your reservation fee covers Mark Stevens Photography’s time and talent only. No products, including digital images, are included with the reservation fee.
Your session will include an in-person ordering appointment and, upon request and availability, an in-person pre-session consultation.
It is understood and agreed that Mark Stevens is the exclusive official photographer retained to perform the photographic services referenced in this Agreement.
NO OTHER CAMERAS, CAMERA PHONES OR OTHER RECORDING DEVICES ARE ALLOWED AT THE SESSION. It is distracting for both the photographer and the subjects.
