This agreement is made between you (as listed above in Billing Details) hereinafter “You”, and Michael Kormos Photography, LLC, hereinafter “Us/We”.
For current pricing on our sessions, prints and products, see our ONLINE SHOP page.
1a) All sessions (including retainer fees) are non-refundable. You may reschedule your Session once, provided you give us written notice at least 48 hours in advance. Any rescheduling with less than 48 hours notice will incur a $300 fee. This policy is strictly enforced. Please be punctual. We try our best to allow for some flexibility. However, if you arrive 20 minutes past your appointment, we will have to reschedule your Session ($300 rescheduling fee applies).
1b) Sessions are limited to immediate family members. Grandparents and other extended family members must be arranged beforehand, and extra fees will apply.
2) Travel fee of $100 applies to on-location/at-home Sessions outside of 10-mile radius from our studio.
3 ) By purchasing a Maternity or Newborn Retainer, you agree that the remaining balance of your Maternity/Newborn Session will be automatically billed to your credit card upon scheduling your Session. Retainers are non-refundable, and the fee can only be applied towards a Maternity/Newborn Session.
4 ) Other cameras or video recorders are not allowed at the Session. Please respect this rule, as it can be distracting to children and prevents us from doing our job to the best of our abilities.
5 ) We maintain the right to reschedule the Session appointment due to rain, snow, or personal emergency. RAIN POLICY: Should the weather forecast predict a 40% chance of precipitation (or higher) 8 hours prior to your session start time, we will contact you to reschedule for an alternate date free of charge.
6 ) In the unlikely event of a hardware failure, loss, or theft of our equipment, we are not responsible for any images lost or stolen. In such an event, we will issue you a full refund.
PRODUCTS AND ORDERING
7 ) Images will be available approximately 3 weeks after your Session.
8 ) Once you place an order for prints and products, no refunds or exchanges are offered. Due to the custom nature of our products, they are sold “as-is” without warranty of any kind. Once you place an order, it may not be modified or canceled. If an item arrives damaged, you must notify us in writing within 48 hours of its receipt. Certain color and tonal variation occur with all products, and color may fade over time.
9 ) Creative privilege: As the artists, we use our artistic discretion to carefully select the final images, as well as the editing (including cropping in final prints and products). We do not release raw, unedited images, since these are not considered to be a finished product. Additional editing is billed separately.
10 ) For details and pricing of our prints and products, please visit the INVESTMENT section of our website, or consult our Product Guide. If you have a question about a product, please ask prior to placing your order.
11 ) Prices are guaranteed for 30 days. Print Credit and tangible products are subject to Sales Tax. All sales are final, and non-refundable. By placing an order, you agree that you have fully read and understood all product descriptions as listed on our website and our Product Guide.
