TERMS + CONDITIONS FOR LIFESTYLE PHOTOSHOOTS

By booking Naturally Jek Photography and paying the retainer you as the client are agreeing to the following Terms and Conditions.

Choosing the Right Photographer

I am a lover of authentic connection. This means while you’re connecting, cuddling and playing with your loved ones, I will be capturing these memories, so they last forever. If you’re feeling apprehensive about what to expect I want to set your mind at ease. There will be no posing or forced smiles, I want you to enjoy this experience. I have a number of prompts to guide your interactions so that you feel comfortable. I want to capture the raw, real and beautiful you. 

If this is what you’re after then I am more than thrilled to have a chat and connect over a session together.

Image Style & Editing Process

The client acknowledges that they are familiar with our style, and that our work is continually evolving and are of a unique and artistic nature, that the photos taken may be different from those taken in the past and that Naturally Jek Photography will use their expertise and artistic judgement to create images consistent with their vision of the wedding, which may be different from the clients. Our editing encompasses cropping and colour grading of all selected images for the client in Lightroom. However, our prices do not include advanced editing/retouching such as individual removal of pimples, scars, double chins or distracting elements. Additional editing may be requested and a fee per image will be quoted upon request and must be accepted prior to any work being carried out.

Pricing

All packages are priced in line with a local travel fee included (unless otherwise indicated), session shoot duration, equipment and business coverage plus my editing style.

Travel fee’s for out of area photoshoots will be quoted separately upon enquiry.

Payment Requirement

All prices are outlined under the ‘package’ tab. Once a invoice is sent the client has 7 days to make their booking payment to secure the date and photoshoot at that price. Failure to do so will result in the date being made available to other clients and price changes.

For lifestyle packages (all non-wedding related packages offered by Naturally Jek Photography) a retainer of $100 secures your booking with Naturally Jek Photography. The remainder of the clients chosen photography collection is due 7 days prior to the booked photoshoot date. Failure to make full payment 7 days prior may result in compromising your photoshoot and loose of your retainer.

Details for payment are sent as an invoice via email and on Wedding Booking Form. Failure to make payment within the allocated timeframe may result in a postponed or cancellation of your session.

Session Times and Late Clients

Naturally Jek Photography will arrive promptly to session on if not before the start time. If the weather is raining, preventing the session going ahead, Jekka will be in touch to reschedule or change location. If clients are late in arriving, this will impact the session and how many images may be able to be delivered. Most sessions are scheduled on “Golden Hour” which is the hour before sunset. Once the sun is set, the lack of light prevents the session from continuing in many cases. There is no guarantee that sessions will be extended if clients are late. Nor will a refund/partial refund be given.

Reschedule/Cancellation

The retainer that holds your date is non-refundable. Should you no longer require Naturally Jek Photography’s after making a booking, the retainer will not be refunded. All other monies paid to Naturally Jek Photography except the retainer will be refunded if more then one months notice is given. Notice given inside of one month will not be refunded. If you need to reschedule and notice is given within one month of your photoshoot date, a rescheduling fee of $100 will occur.

Final payment is due within 7 days for all lifestyle shoots. Failure to do so will compromise your agreement and result in the termination of your photoshoot.

If the weather permits the photoshoot from occurring, the rescheduling fee will not apply. This is to be decided at the discretion of Naturally Jek Photogrphay due to the weather sensitive equipment required to render the service. If Naturally Jek Photography experience a emergency that renders them unable to provide the agreed service, a total refund will be provided.
