The client will receive approximately ten (10) - twenty (20) high-resolution edited digital files via WeTransfer.  The Client and photographer will agree on a date best for The Client to receive their digital files.

It is understood and agreed that SANGLUI CREATIVE will be providing a exclusive photographer to perform the requested portrait services, although the photographer reserves the right to retain the services of individuals to assist them in completing your requested portrait session, at no additional cost to you.

 

DAY OF THE SESSION

You agree that you will be dressed in your desired outfit, and arrive on time to the chosen location. If you are late and do not communicate with your photographer, time will be taken from your session or charged under “Extra Time” herein, at the sole discretion of SANGLUI CREATIVE.  Friends and family are welcome, so long as they do not interfere with the photographer and the photography taking place. Pictures with friends or family are not permitted unless it has been discussed previously with the approval of the photographer.


LOCATION COSTS + FEES

If there are any costs/fees associated with the location the client has chosen for their session, you, the client, will be responsible for those fees. The photographer will not guarantee or arrange payment on any location.


PAYMENT

Payments towards Graduation Sessions services with SANGLUI CREATIVE are required in advance. To ensure The Client can be serviced, clients can book their non-refundable session up to four hours prior to their desired service time slot.

Cash, online payment (paypal) or personal checks are accepted forms of payment. Cash payments must be made 5 business priors to The Client’s session. All checks must be written out to SANGLUI CREATIVE and mailed 8 business days prior The Client’s session. No appointments, retouching or work will be done until funds have been cleared. Returned checks are subject to a $35 charge.

Client agrees to pay photographer full deposit at the time of booking to secure their appointment date and time. All payments are due in full unless payment arrangements have been made. Images will not be processed and/or prints will not be ordered until payment in full is received.


EXTRA TIME

Any amount of time that is lost due to the client being late will be deducted from their session. Client agrees to try to arrive 10 minutes before their time slot to prevent this.  If it is not possible for a session to take place on a scheduled day due to weather, Photographer and Client will reschedule on an agreed date at the earliest date possible, with no additional charge. 

In the event that the photographer is running late, clients will receive 20% off on their final invoice and an additional free hour of work from SANGLUI CREATIVE. This additional free hour, can be used either the day of service or for any future date agreed upon between the photographer and the client. Any additional time spent due to the lateness of the client, retouching, or editing, that are not otherwise paid for under this Contract shall be charged at the rate of $50 per hour. SANGLUI CREATIVE may elect to perform these services or refuse them, at its sole discretion. Client agrees to pay these services as invoiced, and may be required to pay for these services ahead of their provision. 


NO SHOWS

If the client does not show up for their appointment, without contacting their photographer 4 hours in advance, the client will be considered as a “no show”.

If it is not possible for a session to take place on a scheduled day due to weather, Photographer and Client will reschedule on an agreed date at the earliest date possible, with no additional charge.

However, if the client would like to reschedule this session, SANGLUI CREATIVE will transferred funds paid to the new session date.
