|Booking procedures and the fine print.|
Step 1. Decide if you will bring me to your location or rent one of my available locations, pick your favorite that fits your taste, goals and budget.
Step 2. After we pick a date that works for our calendars then I check availability with the location. Once availability is approved you send a non-refundable 50% deposit to hold the date with myself and the location. A 3% transaction fee is added to all online transactions.
3. Shoot day! Hair and makeup has been excluded or arranged. You arrive camera ready and we a great shoot!
4. You get your password protected and watermarked gallery within 48 business hour (up to a week during busy seasons) unless other arrangements have been discussed and agreed on. Pick your favorites and send them to me by email or text. For an additional $250 fee you can get a download or transfer of your gallery in high resolution. The same quality you would get on a CD.
5. RETOUCHING AND TURNAROUND - Your first to complimentary retouches are delivered in 48 to 72 hours of your choosing. Some exceptions apply like if I'm traveling or your order comes in on a holiday weekend. Additional retouches are done based on my current orders. In general 1 week (or up to 2 weeks in peak periods) you receive your retouches by email. Larger orders will be broken up into weekly batches. I do each retouch myself. It can take a little longer but you will see the difference in quality. I put my all into perfecting your photos.
A non-refundable 50% deposit (add 3% transaction fee to online payments) required to make a reservation. If you are booking a location shoot the deposit must be paid within 48 hours of confirmation of availability. Please be prepared. This helps me keep great relationships with the homeowners and property managers, ensuring I always have desirable options for you to choose from.
Deposits are payable by debit or credit card through paypal. You do not need a paypal account to make payments. If you are not comfortable paying online, I accept PayPal-My cash cards. You can find these loadable money packs at 7 Eleven and most drug and grocery stores. If you are local to Los Angeles you can drop deposits off at my office in Koreatown. NO checks, no e checks, no money orders, no bank deposits, no exceptions.
Shots can be rescheduled once with no additional fee within 48 business hours of your shoot with the exception of special offers. Special offers are not able to be rescheduled or applied to a future shoot. Rescheduled shoots must be shot within 30 days original shoot date. I require a minimum amount of bookings to make a special offer work for all artist and models involved. Rescheduling for specials is not an option.
Last but not least. Your privacy. I understand the sensitivity of these type of shoots. You are in control. I only use your photos for my portfolio and social media with your emailed permission. If you want them off my site at a later date, just makeup the request. No questions ask. I only ask to use at least one photo from your shoot that does not show your face. Promotional photos from my shoots are what caught your attention and is leading you to shot with me. Please keep that in mind.
