All sales are final on all services including but not limited to sessions and photo editing orders.
Touring is a major production consisting of securing travel expenses, transporting gear and a wide variety of wardrobe, securing location, and securing the time of the makeup and hair artist. Photographer has to prepay all of this and therefore, since this is done months in advance and is non-refundable to her, we must keep a very strict policy on pricing, deposits, cancellations and rescheduling.
Payment of deposit is Client’s acceptance of terms and conditions as outlined in this policy.
Unless discussed with photographer prior to shoot, there are no chaperones or escorts of any kind allowed at any sessions. Photographer reserves the right to refuse service to anyone.
Client will trust our talent and vision to produce the same outcome on all images selected.
Your satisfaction is of utmost importance to us, but all art is subjective. All images will be edited with the photographers professional artistic vision, and, by choosing her as your photographer, you choose the style of her work and trust her judgment through the creative process.
Payments, Deposits, Rescheduling, Cancellations
All payments made to No Regrets Photography for session fees, deposits, services and product are non-refundable. Sessions may be upgraded but never downgraded.
Full balance must be paid PRIOR to arriving to your shoot, unless you plan to pay in cash, which in that instance you must have exact change as photographer does not carry change.
Photographer will not begin post production on your order until the payment has been paid in full and has cleared.
Deposits to secure your booking date and time are required at booking. Clients may request their preferred time slot however slots are assigned in the order in which deposits come in and photographer will assign slots as close as possible to the desired time selected. Photographer does not guarantee that all clients will get the time slot they request. No appointment is guaranteed until Deposits are made in full. Photographer schedules her calendar around paid clients, unless deposit is made she does not guarantee any secured date and time. Deposits to hold your place on a waiting list for an upcoming tour are accepted.

Rescheduling must be arranged 72 hours prior to the sessions booked date and are good for any future tour locations and dates within one calendar year. Reschedules are only permitted once. Sessions are not transferable. If your request to reschedule the session is made with less than 72 hours’ notice before your session, an extra session fee of $50 will be added to your shoot balance. If you cancel, an additional session fee of $50 will be required to book a new session in the future.

If your session is booked during a group session your scheduled time might be pushed and the client scheduled after you will go before you and your time will still be cut as our group shoot schedules are extremely strict due to studio or location time constraints.
If you cancel your scheduled session or do not pay the balance due on your session before the session, liquidated damages in the amount of your session fee and your hair, makeup, wardrobe, and extra services fee will be charged.

Hair/Makeup & Wardrobe Styling
Our photo sessions are a process starting with hair and makeup and is not only an important part of the process but also an important part of the schedule for our events to run smoothly. That said, it is NOT mandatory (BUT HIGHLY RECOMMENDED) that all clients go through hair and makeup before shooting.
If clients have any allergies or sensitivity to makeup or product, we urge them to bring their own products for the makeup artist to use.
We employ exceptionally talented hair & makeup artists who are working for us for a reduced fee so that your session fee remains affordable and because clients tip. That being said, for those who don’t know the industry, tipping is standard as it is in salons and any other service industry profession. These sessions are high end and we have designed them to be affordable to a spectrum of economic brackets therefore we do ask that our clients be a lady and tip their makeup artist and hair stylist.
Hair and makeup is done as per client requests, any claims of dissatisfaction with hair and makeup after the session are ignored. If for any reason client is unhappy with hair and makeup she must express herself prior to being photographed so that the makeup artist or hair stylist can perform corrections.
For sessions including wardrobe styling by us, client’s measurements and style preferences are due no later than a week prior to session to insure we have a variety of options for you. If measurements are sent less than week prior to shoot, photographer may not be able to guarantee a variety of options, in that case client is encouraged to always bring wardrobe options as well.
If you are wearing our wardrobe you are required to bring your own underwear in various color options to wear under our garments. CLIENT WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO WEAR ANY OF OUR WARDROBE WITHOUT PERSONAL UNDERGARMENTS. We suggest to bring underwear in at least 3 different colors, ALWAYS black, and/or nude, white, red..etc.
