For our discounted 1 hour shoot package:
- We require 10 days notice for cancellations.
- If less than 10 days is given your purchase is subject to forfeiture. It will result in a $50 fee charged to the payment method we have on file for to cover the shoot space (and shoot team) we have already booked for you.
- With more than 10 days notice we allow one reschedule.
One of the factors which strongly influences our ability to provide appointments to the many amazing clients that buy this package on sale (that’s you!) is the ability to offer your cancelled or rescheduled appointment to another client that is waiting to book. If you give less than 10 days cancellation notice or you’ve already rescheduled once & you need to cancel a second time, you are welcome to use the value of your purchase towards a full price shoot (shoot time only, not available to use towards product) in the future. We also charge a $50 fee to cover the shoot location, shoot team and time for the canceled appointment.
For all other packages, a non refundable booking fee equal to 1/3 of the package price is paid to hold your appointment time:
- A non-refundable booking fee is required to reserve your appointment time and for our team to prepare for your shoot.
- The remainder of your package balance is due 10 days prior to your shoot.
- If balance is not received at this time your appointment will be cancelled.
- If you cancel with 10+ days notice you are able to rebook for up to 6 months.
REFUND POLICY (SHOOT TIME)

All other packages:
A booking booking fee of 1/3 the package price is required and is not refundable.
REFUND POLICY (PRODUCTS)
