|Booking procedures and the fine print.|
Step 1. Check out my locations and pick a favorite that fits your taste, goals and budget.
Step 2. After we pick a date that works for our calendards then I check availabilty with the location. Once availibity 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 PayPal transactions.
3. Shoot day! Hair and makeup has been excluded or arranged. You arrive camera ready and we have the best shoot you have ever had!
4. You get your gallery in 48 business hour (up to a week during busy seasons) unless other arrangements have been discussed and agreed on. Pick your favorties and send them to me by email or text. For an additional $100 fee you can get a download of your gallery in high resolution. The same quality you would get on a CD.
5. In 1 to 2 weeks (at peak periods) you recieve your retouches by email. Go over them and give approval or send in requested alterations. (see retouching turn-a-round below)
A non-refundable 50% deposit (including 3% Paypal fee) 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.
Retouching Turn Around
A gallery of your shoot is usually emailed within 3 business days to a week of our shoot. After your selections are received, retouching is turned around 1 week for up to 6 photos. During busy seasons retouching can take up to 2 to 3 weeks. If you need a guarantee date of delivery that should be discussed prior to booking. Rush retouching jobs are available for an increased fee.
I retouch other photographers work at $60 per photo.
Last but not least. Your privacy. I understand the sensativity of these type of shoots. You are in control. I only use your photos for my portfolio and social media with your emailed permision. 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.
