TERMS & CONDITIONS
Retainer and Payment
The Client shall make a $100 non-refundable retainer to K Ell Photography to reserve a session date and time. Upon payment of the $100 retainer, K Ell Photography will reserve the date and time agreed upon by both parties. For this reason, the retainer of $100 is non- refundable, even if the session date is cancelled for any reason. The remaining balance is due one week prior to the session date.
K Ell Photography will travel to any location to offer professional photography services. There is no travel fee if the round trip travel from zip code 84315 to the destination is less than 50 miles.
Destinations with a round trip travel exceeding 50 miles will have a $1.00 charge applying per mile after the first 50 miles. If a job requires that K Ell Photography depart before 7:00 a.m., or if it would require an estimated return arrival time after midnight, then overnight lodging either before or after the event is required.
If air transportation is required, the client will be charge a travel fee of actual expenses, including airfare, car rental, and two nights accommodation in or very close to where the event is taking place. Overnight accommodations are essential for the night before the event and the night of the event. This will assure that if any unforeseen circumstances arise K Ell Photography will be there in plenty of time and that K Ell Photography can perform at their best.
Gift certificates are non refundable. They expire 1 year after the purchase date. All terms and Conditions apply to the recipient once a session date is booked. A session date must be booked for a date within 1 year from the purchase date of the certificate. It is up to the recipient to contact K Ell Photography to schedule the desired photo session. If there is a balance left on the certificate after the provided session, the balance amount is non-refundable, but can be used for future services. Gift certificates cannot be redeemed for cash by the recipient.
Rescheduling & Cancellations
A portrait session can be rescheduled if notice is given at least 4 weeks prior to the scheduled session date. In the event that the Client requests to reschedule the session within 4 weeks from the scheduled session date another $100 non-refundable retainer must be paid to reserve a new date and the previous $100 retainer paid will be forfeited. K Ell Photography or the Client may request to reschedule a session due to weather; discussion about the possibility of rescheduling due to weather should begin 24 hours prior to the session with a final decision made no later than 1 hour prior to the session. If the Client cancels a session without rescheduling or fails to show for a scheduled session, the $100 retainer shall be forfeited. If the client notifies K Ell Photography that a session, wedding or event is cancelled a cancellation must be in writing (print or email) even if a phone call was made to inform K Ell Photography of the cancellation.
With a request to have any images delivered before the normal turnaround time of 4 weeks, there will be an additional $100 charge (aka rush fee). Once the rush fee is paid, images will be delivered 1-7 days after the session in which the rush was requested for.
Any and all sessions, including wedding and events, scheduled on a Sunday will have an additional $100 charge.
Any Client that is late arriving to a session will have the amount of time late deducted from the time allotted for the session. This may also result in a reduction of the number of edited images given.
