Terms and Conditions of Service

Terms and Conditions.

By submitting a retainer fee and contracting Ever After Photography for your photo session, you agree to the following terms and conditions:

Retainer Fee.
Retainer fees to secure your time must be paid at time of booking. This retainer fee takes Jade Thomas, Photographer trading as “Ever After Photography” off the market for your date and time, therefore this retainer fee is not refundable! Until a retainer fee has been received by Ever After Photography and cleared, your date and time is not guaranteed. As certain dates and times are in high demand, we urge you to get your retainer fee to us quickly to secure your date and time.

Balance of Services Due.
Your photo session package balance must be paid 7 days prior to your event, unless it is booked within 7 days of event, in which case, all monies are due at the time of booking. If your balance is not paid at that time, you agree you have forfeited your retainer fee and date. Ever After Photography reserves the right to book another photo session in place of your previously scheduled date and time if package is not paid in full 7 days prior to the contracted photo session.

Miscellaneous Fees.
Customer agrees to reimburse Ever After Photography any fees directly related to your photo session. This includes but is not limited to admission fees, mandatory purchases, parking passes, shuttle transportation, etc. For Example: You request your photo session to be at Myrtle Beach State Park. The admission for a day pass at the park is $8 per adult. You will reimburse Ever After Photography before or after the photo session.

Late Penalties.
While rare, there are times when our customers have shown up late for a photo session. If you are late to you contracted and agreed upon time for your photo session, there is a late penalty fee you must pay. If the photo shoot begins 15 minutes late, the penalty will be $25.00; if 30 minutes late, the penalty will be $75.00; if 45 minutes late, the penalty will be $125.00; if an hour late, your penalty will be $200.00. If you are late for your contracted photo session the session may be cut short by the number of minutes you are late if Ever After Photography has another booked photo session to attend. In these situations, absolutely no refunds will be granted.

We will shoot your event in just about any weather condition – however, we will never perform a photography session outdoors during life threatening thunder and lightning storms. In Myrtle Beach and surrounding areas, these storms usually pass quickly and we resume the shoot instead of rescheduling. If you need to reschedule your date for any reason please notify Ever After Photography as soon as possible. We will work with you as best we can to reschedule your photo session. To ensure everyone is on the same page, please have your event coordinator keep us informed of ANY changes or email jadet48@gmail.com directly with ‘RESCHEDULE PHOTO SHOOT’ in the subject line.

Cancellation Policy.
If you cancel your reservation for any reason prior to 14 days preceding your reservation date all monies paid to Ever After Photography will be refunded except for the non-refundable retainer fee paid. The non- refundable retainer fee may be used for a future reservation. So if you decide to visit Myrtle Beach at some point in the future, you can use that retainer fee to re-schedule your photo session with Ever After Photography.

Limits of Liability
By hiring Ever After Photography, you agree that the maximum limits of liability of Ever After Photography is limited to the amount paid by you to Ever After Photography.

Albums, Prints, and Photo Merchandise.
