Let's talk!

Booking Conditions

Upon paying the deposit, you agree to all the terms and conditions stated on this page.

Deposit

A non-refundable deposit is required to secure your timeslot, and the rest payable by cash on the day of shooting. If you pay the remaining amount by credit card, there will be an additional 5% charge

 

The time slot remains open for other clients to book until the deposit is paid.

Remaining balance

The photo editing process will not start until the remaining balance is fully paid, and the delivery time of the photos will be delayed accordingly.

Cancellations

The deposit will not be refunded in case of a cancellation of shooting, except in special cases covered under the COVID policy in FAQ.

 

Rescheduling

Change of time slot/location will be entertained only once, only upon availability and may be subject to additional costs.

 

Transportation

​Clients are responsible for the full cost of transportation except trips covered by the Paris metro. The transportation time/walking time between locations/shooting spots are included in the shooting time. For example, if the transportation time between spot A and spot B is 20 minutes, you will lose 20 minutes of shooting time within the package that you have booked. 20 can be added to exclude the transportation time between two locations within 30 min of transportation time, so you can still keep the same amount of shooting time.

Shooting costs

Rental of any shooting locations is at the client's cost, and is payable in full at the time of the reservation if the location is booked by photographer.

For any cafe shooting, the cost of the food and drinks are covered by the client. 

For a full day shooting, one meal for the photographer is paid by the client. 

Early morning/late night fee

If the shooting starts earlier than 08:00 or ends later than 23:00, there will be an extra 50€ fee. These fees will not be adjusted automatically in the online booking system, but will be due in cash on the day of the shooting.

Shooting day

Please ensure that you allow enough buffer time to arrive at the shooting location in advance, as the traffic in Paris is very complicated. There are often metro breakdowns, traffic jams and problems with getting Ubers/taxis. Late arrivals will not be given extra time, and the number of photos received and the number of locations shot may be reduced. ​

 

Locations & extra costs outside Paris city

Price quoted is only for Paris city centre & RER A east lower branch to Boissy-Saint-Léger (supplementary costs for time and transportation may be added for other suburbs or regions, quoted upon demand), and shooting outdoors with natural light only, other shootings like night shooting/shooting indoors will incur a fee of extra 50€ per hour. ​ The online booking system doesn't adjust automatically for extra persons/add-ons, but those will be charged by cash on the day of the shooting.

Splitting sessions 

If you would like to split your booked sessions to morning & evening or in two days, there will be an extra 150€. So for some shorter duration packages, it can be cheaper to book two sessions separately. 

Vendors

I work with several vendors, so please let us know if you need help to arrange for a make up artist, or to make purchases at a florist, a balloon shop, or a picnic basket shop etc.
