A signed Agreement and full session payment are required to reserve the specified coverage. If the session is rescheduled or cancelled by the client less than 48 hours prior to the session, the fee will not be returned or applied towards the rescheduled session. If the client arrives late to their session time slot or fails to appear for their time slot ther session fee and session time is non-refundable or transferable. Clients are encouraged to arrive 10 minutes prior to their scheduled time in order to guarantee full use of their time.
The total balance due must be paid in full prior to any work beginning. Full Payment/Retainer is required to book your session- non refundable , 48h notice of cancellation a 75% credit is applied to future sessions- Photographer will not arrive without Full Payment. Customer's are responsibility to confirm session prior to session date. Clients are responsible for all location fees and permits.
Juodis Photography may end the session at their discretion according to our determination of having captured adequate images both in terms of quality and quantity. If the session is ended prior to the maximum amount of time, there will be no refund or credit for unused time. If additional hours are required or requested for your portrait session, they will be billed at $75.00 per hour. Juodis Photography reserves the right to refuse a requested location for any reason.
Online Gallery takes approximately two to four weeks from time of shoot. Express 48h editing may be purchased for $175. All good images will be individually corrected for color balance, density, contrast, etc. There may be light retouching applied to images. Retouching means correcting various elements in an image such as: litter, distracting elements, and minor physical imperfections (bags under eyes, teeth whitening, eyes whitening, clearing of skin, major stray hairs, etc.). We do not change body size, skin color, head swaps and we don’t use digital backgrounds. Juodis Photography is granted total artistic control over the final image and the client understands that these are the steps we will take when referring to retouching. Any requested retouching over that specified above will be billed at $100 per hour.
Due to the large amount of storage space required for digital imaging technology and the large quantity of images created per year Juodis Photography guarantees storage of digital images for 90 days after shooting. After that time Juodis Photography may delete those images at their discretion.
