If it is not possible for a session to take place on a scheduled date due to weather, Photographer and Client will reschedule on an agreed date at the earliest date possible, with no additional charge. If an event is rescheduled for whichever reason, as long as the photographer is available on the new date the booking will be transferred. If the photographer is not available then the booking fee will be forfeited.
Any client that is late arriving to the session will have the amount of time late deducted from the time allotted for the session.
