KTVASTUDIOS

Our Policy

Concepts + Ideas

Concepts will not be discussed until a deposit is paid.  We value our ideas and our creativity. Though creatives see the same vision it is never executed through the same set of eyes + passion. We ask that once your inquiry with your idea is made, and the the proposal is sent, be available to pay your deposit so that we can movie forward in our creative process. This will eliminate time being wasted for both of us + allow someone else for booking who is willing to pay for our services + ideas. 


NO GUARANTEED RESULTS

As stated above, Photographer will make a good faith effort to achieve Client’s desired results. However, photography is a subjective art form, and Client acknowledges that Photographer cannot and will not guarantee any particular results, including Client’s desired results


Payments + Refunds
KTVASTUDIOS agrees to provide photography services to the client in consideration of payment provided pursuant to the terms of this photography services agreement. We require a 50% NON-REFUNDABLE retainer on all sessions/events. Your session date is not finalized until this payment is made. The deposit is due within 48 hours of your consultation or your proposed date is more than likely prompted to change due to other session requests. The retainer will later be deducted from your final remaining payment BEFORE arriving at your session (it is preferred that final payment be paid at least 24 hours before session). No services will be conducted without full payment. All payments can be made online. Please notify me if you would like to schedule a different form of payment. Due to the nature of digital photography and the fact that photographs, once sent, cannot be returned; KTVASTUDIOS has a strict NO REFUND POLICY. Once a transaction has been completed (i.e. the session completed and client receives digital gallery) it is then considered non-refundable.
* Prices are subject to change at any time.
*Please remember dates are secured upon availability. Dates will be confirmed during consultation.


DEPOSIT

A required retainer of  is due at the signing of this agreement or at another time as agreed by the Parties. The service fee, when due, will be reduced by the amount of the retainer. No photography will take place and no rights are granted until the retainer is paid in full. Photographer will not reserve the session date and time until paid the retainer in full.

PAYMENT

Once services are rendered, Client must have ALL fees paid in full,  . If the fee is not timely paid, Photographer may withhold Client’s access to the photographic materials from the session. Also, a late payment fee of  may apply.


NO REFUNDS

Upon both Parties signing this Agreement, and upon Client furnishing Photographer with the agreed-to retainer, Photographer will reserve the session time and will not make another reservation for the specified time frame. For this reason, all retainers are non-refundable if the Session is cancelled or changed for any reason. Fees, once paid, are non-refundable as well. Refunds will only be allowed as established by Part 10 of this Agreement.


Rescheduling + Tardiness
I understand weather, illness, or other reasons may cause us to reschedule a session. With the weather being unpredictable, I normally only reschedule if the forecast is over 50% chance of rain within 24 hours of the session date. This is case by case. For other situations, you must notify me at least 48 hours in advance, and you will be allowed to reschedule your session. You are allowed one rescheduling credit if 48 hours’ notice is given. No shows or other requests to reschedule will result in an additional fee of $50. If I have to reschedule, I will do everything in my power to find the next date that is convenient for us. Please be prepared and on time for your session.  If you are tardy, I will not be able to shoot past the original end time for the session. IN THE EVENT PHOTOGRAPHER CANNOT PERFORM because of foreseeable illness, conflict or inability to perform, Client agrees that Photographer may assign and delegate performance and obligations of this Agreement to another professional photographer at Photographer’s discretion. In the event that Photographer cannot perform or the Session does not take place, Photographer is not required to service a later Session.


EXCLUSIVITY 

It is understood and agreed that no other photographer will be allowed to photograph or take pictures or video during the Session while Photographer is working, unless otherwise agreed by the Parties in writing. This restriction applies to Client and any associates of Client and includes cell-phone cameras, computer cameras, and their equivalents.


LIMITS OF LIABILITY

If Photographer cannot perform this Agreement in whole or in part due to circumstances outside of the Parties’ control, such as sudden injury, illness, lost equipment, or acts of God, then Photographer will return all retainers and fees to the Client(s) but shall have no further liability with respect to this Agreement. Photographer will also return all retainers and fees, but will not be liable for any other injuries, if photographic materials are damaged
