Terms and Conditions

AGREEMENT OVERVIEW:

This agreement contains the entire understanding between Budlong Photography and the client. It supersedes all prior and simultaneous agreements between the parties. The only way to add or change this agreement is to do so in writing, signed by all the parties.

COMMUNICATION / COOPERATION:

Communication is the key to a great portrait session. Please notify your photographer of any “must-have” shots prior to your session. Budlong Photography is not responsible if key individuals fail to appear or cooperate during photography sessions or for missed images due to details not revealed to photographer. If the client is unhappy with any aspect of your session, they can contact Budlong Photography and receive a 8"x10" framed print at no cost to the client.


IMAGES & COPYRIGHTS:

The photographs produced by Budlong Photography are protected by Federal Copyright Law and may not be reproduced in any manner without Budlong Photography's explicitly written permission. Personal usage permission is included with the web-resolution copies delivered via disks or digital download of individual images; with which the client may publish the images to blogs, websites, and social networks. Printing rights are reserved to Budlong Photography, which also reserves the right to use images for promotion or advertising purposes in any medium (print/web/video/etc...). The client hereby releases Budlong Photography and its legal representatives from all claims and liability relating to said photographs.

LIMIT OF LIABILITY:

In the unlikely event that the photographer is injured or becomes ill, or has an extreme emergency that prevents him or her from photographing the event, Budlong Photography will make every effort to provide an alternate photographer or reschedule the event. If for whatever reason this is not possible, responsibility and liability is limited to the return of all payments received for the package purchased. Budlong Photography takes the utmost care with respect to exposure, transportation, and processing the photographs. However, in the unlikely event that photographs have been lost, stolen, or destroyed for reasons within or beyond Budlong Photography's control, Budlong Photography’s liability is limited to the return of all payments received for the portrait package. Budlong Photography will not be held liable for any injuries incurred during the photography session; if the client is not comfortable with the circumstances around the session, you have the right to request a change.


CANCELLATION POLICY:

If you notify us of the cancellation more than 14 days prior to your session date, any payments (minus the deposit) will be refunded. If you notify us of the cancellation less than 14 days prior to your session, no refund will be given. We will, however, apply your total deposit toward a future session date if a photographer is available on the requested date.

Weather-Related Cancellations: In the event of rain or thunderstorms, we will do our best to reschedule your session at another time. If rescheduling is not possible, you will receive a refund or a "rain check" for a future session date.

Tropical Weather: In the event of a tropical storm, hurricane, and / or a mandatory evacuation of the coastal area due to tropical weather, you may choose to receive a full refund of your deposit or a "rain check" for a future session.
