Anything less than $500, then entire amount is due at the time of booking and is non-refundable. The total wedding fee (including deposit) covers the time and talent of photographer, basic retouching and creative editing of images, as determined by the photographer, and images (amount depending on session) to be stored, and correspondence. The rest of the agreed upon wedding package amount is due on or before the wedding date. Additional editing is available at additional expense to be determined by photographer.
