BOOKING FEES / PHOTOGRAPHY FEES EXPLAINED
A booking fee (photography fee) for Setrik Photography is charged so that we may secure your slot on our calendar. Each booking fee is non-refundable and includes one hour of photographic coverage. Booking fees are the only type of photography fees that we have that are required for all appointments. The booking fee is our way of securing the calendar spot and making sure that when anyone else calls to book an appointment we will decline their request if their required time conflicts with yours. For example, if you book us for a wedding that will be taking place in 15 months from your booking date, we will secure the entire day (in other words we will not book anything else that entire day). This allows you to have some flexibility in determining when you would like for us to arrive as well as determining a schedule for the day. If someone were to call requesting photography time on your booked date, we would attempt to reschedule them for a date and time that works with our schedule, however if we are unable to find a time that works, we simply decline their request. With weddings especially, we will not book anything else that may conflict with your event, or in your ability to shift times around. Wedding booking fees are a bit more than other booking fees because we block the entire day. Other booking fees only block off time a half hour before and a half hour after.
Portrait sessions are a little different. For portrait sessions, commercial, and events, we simply make sure our schedule is clear a half hour before your session and a half hour after your session. If someone calls to book an appointment during a time that conflicts with your booked time, again, we decline. Because we potentially turn away business and profits that we could theoretically add to the books, the booking fee is non-refundable. In the event that you cancel or need to reschedule your booked time, another booking fee would be due. This allows us to recover some losses from any appointments that we previously declined due to the scheduling conflict. We do make exceptions to these rules, however it is rare and only happen under very special circumstances. If you were asked to pay a second booking fee due to cancellation or reschedule and feel you should not have to pay the second booking fee, please simply contact us. If in the end, your request is fair on both sides, we will see what we can do to make it right.
If you have any questions at all regarding any of our photography fees including booking fees, please simply give us a call or send an email. We will be more than happy to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
