PHOTOGRAPHER agrees to provide to CLIENT no fewer than the number of photos listed in the Package Options and Terms section of this Agreement. PHOTOGRAPHER will also perform retouching, post-processing or digital image editing services on these photos where artistically necessary. The final post production and editing styles, effects, and overall look of the images are left to the discretion of PHOTOGRAPHER. Photos will be delivered electronically in high resolution (300 dpi) JPG/JPEG format unless photos are an event session. PHOTOGRAPHER retains the right of discretion in selecting photographic materials released to CLIENT. Editing and creating images takes approximately 5-10 business days, but may take longer. Additional editing may be requested after delivery for $15-$25 per image depending on the extent of work required.

CLIENT will obtain all permissions necessary for PHOTOGRAPHER to photograph at the SESSION. PHOTOGRAPHER has no duty to obtain permissions at locations to operate thereon. CLIENT agrees that any failure to obtain these permissions resulting in fines to PHOTOGRAPHER is not the fault, liability, or responsibility of PHOTOGRAPHER. CLIENT is responsible for any props to use at SESSION.
By signing this document you are committing to the non-refundable deposit listed in the Package Options and Terms section of this Agreement. SESSION fees may be paid in full ahead of time. CLIENT agrees to pay remaining balance on the day of the SESSION.

The PHOTOGRAPHER shall not be liable for any claims whatsoever resulting from alterations made to the material by the CLIENT. The PHOTOGRAPHER grants the CLIENT the right to make unlimited number and format of copies of the photographs for personal use. The CLIENT shall obtain written permission from the PHOTOGRAPHER prior to selling or publishing any of the material for financial gain.
CLIENT grants PHOTOGRAPHER permission to display selected images resulting from this assignment as an example of PHOTOGRAPHER’S work and release all claims to profits that may arise from use of images.
