By providing a retainer, you are agreeing to the following:
The retainer holds your date and is non-refundable should you no longer require my services. No amounts of monies paid to me are refundable unless I experience an emergency that renders me unable to provide the agreed services.
Should you fail to perform (you decide that you no longer require my services), liquidated damages shall be charged at the amount of the retainer. (Note: this is just another way of saying that the retainer is non-refundable)
Should I have an emergency and no longer be able to provide my services, I will reschedule your session or refund your retainer if a reschedule is not possible. This would only be in the case of a true emergency and is never expected to be a possibility.
If you need to reschedule, please contact me at least 24 hours before your session. If you fail to contact us, or are more than 30 minutes late to your session, your retainer will be forfeited. If you wish to re-schedule at that point then there will be a $25 rescheduling fee. Please contact me as soon as possible in order to prevent a re-scheduling fee.
In the event of poor weather conditions and your session is planned for outdoors, we can reschedule the session to another date, however clouds, slight wind, light sprinkles aren’t a problem and I usually go ahead in this case.
Please do not bring your own camera or recording equipment to the session.
Please only bring the people that will be included in the images on the day of your session.
Photographs taken by Vero+Sal may be used for the purposes of display, advertising, portfolio, website, social media or any publication to promote our business.
Upon viewing samples of my work, you have decided to invest in my photographic services as you are confident that our styles will blend with each other and you will hold dear the memories that I will capture.
I will make a good faith effort to achieve the best results. However, sometimes our styles do not blend and we have a different view. Children can also be difficult to photograph and may experience behavioral or attention-related problems during the session. Please know that I cannot and will not guarantee any particular results. If a person that is being photographed does not or cannot cooperate during the session, you are still responsible for full payment under this Agreement.
Many images will be captured during your session, however, only the images that meet my high standards will be included in your gallery. All images that do not meet our standard are purged upon editing. I cannot guarantee an exact number of images from your session, although on average, most clients receive 60 images in their gallery for viewing.
As an artist, I reserve the right to artistically view what I see and in how I choose to photograph a scene. Sometimes this may mean that some pictures may be in color and others may be in black and white.
I will do my best to ensure a variety of poses, but make no guarantees that the CLIENT will receive specific images from a particular pose. In addition, Vero+Sal cannot be held responsible if anyone is not prepared for their session, or uncooperative in any way. The photographer will do their best to capture images with individuals who are present and prepared, and it is the sole responsibility of the CLIENT to ensure all concerned parties are ready.
All images taken at your session are the sole property of Vero+Sal and are protected under Federal Copyright Law. However, Vero+Sal grants permission to the Client to alter or reproduce the images in any manner including cropping, adding text or applying a brand specific filter. Client can use and publish images for purpose of display, editorial work, advertising, website, or to promote their business.
Client hereby grants Vero+Sal the right to use and publish images for purpose of display, editorial work, portfolio, advertising, website or publication to promote Vero+Sal. I agree that these images can be used by Vero+Sal without any additional compensation to the above stated.
Images will be available approximately 2-3 weeks after your session in a secure online gallery for 3 weeks. If you choose to order prints your order will be placed within an online gallery.
