This signed contract and a non-refundable deposit of the amount stated in the portrait session description is required at the time of booking. The retainer is £50.00 and is part of the purchased package. In the event of a cancelled session this retainer deposit is non-refundable.
Payment Arrangements:
The retainer holds your date and is non-refundable should you no longer require my services. No amount of monies paid to me is refundable unless I experience an emergency that renders me unable to provide the agreed services. Retainers are required to secure session dates. Session dates and times will only be held for up to 3 days without a deposit. After the 3 day grace period, the date and time becomes available again and may be booked by another party. If a booking made less than 2 weeks prior to the portrait session date, the full cost of the portrait session is payable at the time of booking. Amanda Herbert Photography reserves the right to cancel / refuse any of the portrait sessions.
Payment Arrangements:
The £50 retainer is due at the signing of this contract. The remainder of the package amount is due the day of the scheduled session, prior to the start of shooting. The balance on the cost of the portrait session will be due 2 weeks before the portrait session starts. If full payment is not received by the specified dates Amanda Herbert Photography reserves the right to treat the booking as cancelled and retain the deposit.
Payment stipulations
There is a £25 fee for any returned cheque. In the event of a previous returned check by client, studio reserves the right to refuse payment of cheques in the future, in which case cash, money order, cashier’s check, and debit/credit will be accepted.
