Imagery By Marianne‘s Photo Session Policies
Engagement & Portrait Sessions: All engagement and portrait sessions must be scheduled in the evenings during the week from April-November, as weekends are set aside for wedding and event coverage.
Portrait Sessions: All portrait sessions require the signing of a digital contract, which includes a model release. By signing the contract, you are agreeing to come tony studio for an ordering session to view the images for the first time and purchase the images from your session from me at a ONE TIME ONLY discounted rate, within 4 weeks of the session date.
If you live out of state, you may order your products directly through your online viewing gallery with the option to Skype with me so that I may assist you with your order.
Weather: If it is not possible for the portrait session to take place at the scheduled appointment day/time due to weather, Marianne and her client will reschedule the photo session to the earliest date possible in both of their schedules, at no additional cost.
Cooperation/No Shows: Marianne is not responsible if client and/or key individuals fail to appear or cooperate during portrait sessions, or for missed images due to details not revealed to her. If client and/or key individuals fail to appear to a scheduled portrait session, the deposit is non-refundable. The session can be rescheduled at the original portrait session fee.
Reshoots: In the unlikely event that the client is completely dissatisfied with the final results based solely on personal preference, Marianne will reshoot the session at a 15% discount from the original session fee. Client is then able to order prints from the second portrait session only. In the unlikely event that the finished product from a portrait session is unusable due to technical problems (camera failure or exposure problems), Marianne will reshoot at no additional charge.
Copyright: All images are copyrighted and to remain the property of Imagery By Marianne.
Client’s Usage: If purchased, client obtains images for personal use only and shall not sell prints or authorize the selling of files for commercial use without Marianne’s permission. Prints for publication (such as editorial, public relations, or advertising use) require prior written permission from Marianne. A credit line which reads “Imagery By Marianne” in type no smaller than that of the related text must appear adjacent to or within all permitted published photographs.
Exhibition: Client grants Marianne permission to display selected images resulting from this assignment as an example of Marianne’s work and for entrance into photographic competitions and releases all claims to profits that may arise from use of images.
Limit of Liability: Marianne take’s the utmost care with respect to the exposure, retouching, and transportation of digital captures, proofs, and prints. However, in the unlikely event that all the originals are lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed, within or beyond Marianne’s control, Marianne’s liability is limited to the refund of all payments received, or a reshoot can be scheduled at no additional cost. The limit of liability for partial loss or damage of originals shall be a prorated amount of the total amount, based on the percentage of originals lost or damaged. In the unlikely event that Marianne is injured or becomes ill to attend the portrait session, Marianne will make every effort to reschedule to the earliest possible date. If the situation should occur and the portrait session must take place on the scheduled date, Marianne will make every effort to secure a replacement photographer. If the situation should occur and a suitable replacement is not found, responsibility and liability is limited to the return of all payments received.
Client may increase the period of Marianne’s service on the portrait date, provided Marianne is available during the time requested. Added expenses resulting from such change, including additional service cost, digital capture costs, and change-related fees will be added on to the final balance and will be paid in full by client prior to delivery of the online proofs. Client may not decrease the period of Marianne’s service on the portrait date. If the period of Marianne’s service is cut short by reason of fire, casualty, death, acts of God or other cause beyond the control of the parties, Marianne shall still receive the total fees outlined above.
Client galleries will be active for 14 days from the ordering session date for additional viewing/ordering purposes. Clients must make their minimum required product purchase payment of $300 at the ordering session for the gallery access to be released. If you do not wish to order at the ordering session, you will receive the amount in credit to the online store that will be good for 14 days. This policy is in place to guarantee the price of your items by the manufacturers as prices do fluctuate throughout the year.
