Hello and thank you for considering Sasha G. Photography for capturing your precious moments! We’re excited about the possibility of working together. Below, you’ll find an easy-to-navigate outline of our Terms and Conditions, ensuring we’re all on the same page. By booking with us you will be agreeing to the following terms:

Agreement of Services

This agreement is a legally binding contract between the Client, and Sasha G. Photography the "Provider", referred to collectively as the "Parties." The Client acknowledges that by accepting and agreeing to services provided by Sasha G. Photography, you have reviewed, understood, and agreed to the terms and conditions laid out in this document.

Services

Sasha G. Photography will provide "Services" and associated deliverables outlined in communications (i.e. emails, text messages, etc.) and client portals utilized by Sasha G. Photography.

Location of Services

The location where all "Services" rendered will be agreed upon by the "Parties" through email and client portal communications. All addtional locations included may be subject to additional cost. 

Delivery of "Services" and Deliverables

Sasha G. Photography will provide all "Services" and deliverables in two to three weeks from project completion unless otherwise specified within communications between the "Parties" or within a revised signed invoice or service agreement. When the provided "Services" are tied to the number of guests that "Client" expects to attend Client's wedding or other specified event, "Client" agrees to notify "Provider" with an accurate guest count.

Cost, Fees, and Payment

The total cost ("Total Cost") for all "Services" will be due in full by the final payment date specified in the provided Invoice for "Services" to be provided. 

Client shall pay the Total Cost to Provider as follows:

The first payment is a non-refundable retainer. At a minimum, Client agrees that the retainer fee fairly compensates Provider for committing to provide the Services and turning down other potential projects/clients during any conflicting period or time. 

Final payment will be paid to the "Provider" by the final payment date. Late payments may be subject to a late fee or additional fee specified in "FAQs". 

Exclusivity

"Client" understands and agrees that he, she, or they has hired the "Provider" exclusive of any other service provider. In order to provide a high level of satisfaction and quality of service, no other service providers, other than any assistant or third party that "Provider" hires to complete the "Services" outlined in this Agreement, are permitted to provide the same or similar services or products, paid or unpaid, at the locations and dates specified in this Agreement.

Intellectual Property

Copyright Ownership.  If any copyrighted work(s) are created as a result of the Services provided by Provider under this Agreement, the Provider owns all copyrights in any and all work(s) it, he, she, or they creates or produces pursuant to federal copyright law (Title 17, Chapter 2, Section 201-02 of the United States Code), whether registered or unregistered. Any and all products, whether tangible or intangible, produced or created in connection with, or in the process of fulfilling this Agreement, are expressly and solely owned by Provider and may be used in the reasonable course of the "Provider" (Sasha G. Photography)'s business.

Permitted Uses of Product(s). The Provider grants to Client a non-exclusive license of product(s) produced with and for Client for personal use only so long as Client provides Provider with attribution each time Client uses Provider's property. Personal use includes, but is not limited to, use within the following contexts:

  1. In photos on Client’s personal social media pages or profiles; or

  2. In personal creations, such as a scrapbook or personal gift; or

  3. In personal communications, such as a family newsletter or email, or holiday card.

Artistic Release

Style. By agreeing to services provided by Sasha G. Photography the "Client" understands that the work provided will be in the presented artistic style and manner consistant with previous works presented to the public through available channels.

Consistency. Sasha G. Photography will make reasonable efforts to ensure the "Client's" desired Services are produced in a style and manner consistent with Provider current portfolio and Provider will try to incorporate any reasonable suggestion made by the  "Client", as long as it does not alter the consitantcy of the final image. However, Client understands and agrees that:

  1. Every client and wedding is different, with different tastes, budgets, and needs;

  2. Photography Services are often a subjective art and the photographer has a unique vision, with an ever-evolving style and technique;

  3. Sasha G. Photography will use its artistic judgment when providing Services for Client, which may not include strict adherence to Client’s suggestions;

  4. Although Provider will use reasonable efforts to incorporate Client’s suggestions and desires when providing Client with the Services, Provider shall have final say regarding the aesthetic judgment and artistic quality of the Services;

  5. Dissatisfaction with the photographer's aesthetic judgment or artistic ability are not valid reasons for termination of this Agreement or request of any monies returned.

Cancellation, Rescheduling, and No-Shows

Cancellation, Rescheduling of Services or No-Show Client. If the Client desires to cancel Services, reschedule Services, or if it becomes impossible for Sasha G. Photography to render Services due to the fault or absence of the "Client" or parties related to the "Client", such as failure of the "Client" to sufficiently notify Sasha G. Photography or failure of one or more essential parties to the project or session to show up in a timely manner, the "Client" shall  provide notice to the "Provider" as soon as possible via the Notice provisions detailed in this Agreement. Provider has no obligation to attempt to re-book further Services to fill the void created by Client’s cancellation, rescheduling, no-show or if it becomes impossible for Provider to provide the Services due to the fault of Client (or parties related to Client), and Provider will not be obligated to refund any monies Client has previously paid towards the Total Cost.  Client is not relieved of any payment obligations for cancelled Services, rescheduled Services, failing to show up for the project, or should it become impossible for Provider  to provide the services due to the fault of Client (or parties related to Client) unless the Parties otherwise agree in writing.   For instance, if Provider is able to secure another, unrelated client for the agreed upon date of Services to be rendered, then Provider may choose, at its sole discretion, to excuse all (or a portion of) Client's outstanding balance of the Total Cost. 

Failure to Perfom Services

Failure to Perform Services. In the event Provider cannot or will not perform its obligations in any or all parts of this Agreement, it (or a responsible party) will:

  1. Immediately give Notice to Client via communications agreed upon detailed in this Agreement or written communications; and

  2. Attempt to find another competent professional to take its place with the mutual agreement of Client(s);

  3. If another competent professional is not available or Client(s) do not agree to transfer of obligations to said alternate professional, Sasha G. Photography will issue a refund or credit based on a reasonably accurate percentage of services rendered; and
