Small Event Contract (Non Wedding):
BOOKING PAYMENT & CANCELLATION POLICY BOOKING: A $200 non-fundable session retainer is required to book and hold the date for your event and serves as a cancellation fee. The remaining balance is due on the event date. The booking retainer MUST be mailed within five (3) days of requesting the date of service. If the booking retainer has not been received after one week, the date will re-open at Jeri Ann Photography's discretion. It is the clients sole responsibility to abide by the terms of this contract, therefore Jeri Ann Photography is not responsible for telling the client the date has been re-opened to the public and has the right to book another client for the date.
PAYMENT: All retainer fees must be paid within five (3) days via money order, certified check, paypal, or cash. If agreed to by Jeri Ann Photography for client to pay by check, checks must first clear and any uncleared check will have an additional charge of $35 to cover bank fees plus whatever balance is due must be paid by cash or money order immediately. Please note, check must clear prior to reserving and booking an event date.
CANCELLATION POLICY: For events, the client will forefeit their retainer paid to reserve the date which will act as a cancellation fee if the event is canceled up to 1 month prior. The fee can be credited towards a future date if the client reschedules and the photographer is available for the new date.
If Jeri Ann Photography cannot perform this contract due to fire or other casualty, strike, act of God, or other cause beyond the control of the parties, or due to photographer’s illness or emergency, then the photographer shall return the retainer fee to the client but shall have no further liability with respect to the contract. This limitation on liability shall also apply in the event that photographic materials are damaged in processing, lost through camera or other media malfunction, lost in the mail, or otherwise lost or damaged without fault on the part of the photographer. In the event Jeri Ann Photography fails to perform for any other reason, Jeri Ann Photography shall not be liable for any amount in excess of all monies paid.
TIME: Client agrees and understands that the start time agreed upon is the time the photographer begins and hours worked are consecutive. If clients are late for any reason, this time is deducted from their package (client loses this time). If Jeri Ann Photography is late for any reason, the time she is late will be added. There will be an additional charge of $50 per 15 minutes that the event runs over if clients wish to continue photographing. Each additional hour will be subject to package fee's listed on this website.
COPYRIGHT: Please make sure to credit "Jeri Ann Photography" when posting images online (social media, blogs, etc). If you submit any images to magazines, websites, etc., the photos must have my logo present and must be credited to "Jeri Ann Photography". Failure to do so is a copyright infringement.
