If Photographer cannot perform this agreement in whole or in part due to a cause beyond the control of the parties, changing of details that no longer fit with the photographers’ originally agreed terms or due to Photographer’s illness or injury, then Shull Studios will return all fees to the client(s) but shall have no further liability with respect to this Agreement. This is the parties’ entire agreement on this matter, superseding all previous negotiations or agreements.
WAIVER AND INDEMNIFICATION
Client and it’s agent’s, family members and assignees, if any, shall indemnify, and hold harmless, Shull Studios and Sabrina Alfonsa Shull from any and all claims for damages arising out of the performance of any of the services contemplated by this Agreement with the exception of intentional or illegal acts.
DAY OF THE SESSION
You agree that you will be dressed in your first outfit, and arrive on time to the chosen location. If you are late, time will be taken from your session or charged under “Extra Time” herein, at the sole discretion of Shull Studios. Friends and family are welcome, so long as they do not interfere with the photographer and the photography taking place. Pictures with friends or family are not permitted unless it has been discussed previously with the approval of the photographer.
RECEIVING PHOTOS AND PRINTS
For sessions, please allow up to 14 days from the date of your session to receive your photos. Clients are not permitted to alter the final digital photos (i.e. use filters, editing apps) or remove watermarks. Watermarks will not be on final prints. Shull Studios does not provide prints.
Couple session outfits not done on the same day as an event must be done within 90 days of their first outfit shoot date. If client chooses not to go through with an outfit after it’s been paid for or doesn’t do it within the specified time frame, client agrees to forfeit the amount paid and give up rights to Shull Studios.
Any additional time spent due to the lateness of the client, retouching, or editing, that are not otherwise paid for under this Contract shall be charged at the rate of $15 per hour. Shull Studios may elect to perform these services or refuse them, at its sole discretion. Client agrees to pay these services as invoiced, and may be required to pay for these services ahead of their provision.
COLORING AND RETOUCHING
Basic retouching includes clearing skin, getting single strands of hair out of the face, and obvious blemishes. Basic retouching does not include things like physically changing body shapes, fixing dresses, removing people or things from a photo, fixing clothes/makeup/etc. or adding things to photos.
OVERALL APPEARANCE AND PERSONAL ITEMS
The photographer is not responsible for any missing, damaged or altered clothing/material belonging to the client. Please be aware that for some photos you may or may not get dirty. It is ultimately your responsibility to make sure your clothes, makeup, hair and overall appearance are the way you want for the photos. The photographer is not responsible for any styling, makeup issues, hair problems or any other factors in the photography other than the directing and photography of the client.
WEATHER AND SESSION CHANGES/LOCATIONS
You are able to switch your day because of weather or personal reasons, so long as no other sessions are scheduled that day and it works for the photographer. Locations within 15 minutes of the Marquette are free. Any other location outside 15 minutes of the Marquette City is subject to a separate charge based on distance. Cost of location permits for shooting or availability and the choosing of a location is the responsibility of the client. Unless otherwise stated, all photo sessions come with at least ONE location in Marquette.
Deliverable items and shots are contingent upon the client performing actions and cooperating with the photographer. The photographer is not liable if the client’s neglect leads to a compromise of what has been agreed upon. The Photographer shall not be responsible for photographs not taken as a result of the Client’s failure to provide reasonable assistance or cooperation.
DIGITAL FILES AND USBS
All files will ordinarily be delivered through USB or email and will be made available for download. Any additional prints or edited photos ordered are non-refundable, whether or not client decides to keep them.
If you are not satisfied with your photos, you may be refunded half of the total package or request a free re-shoot if the issue stems on the photographer's end. You will only be eligible if you have made this known to the photographer within 14 days from the date the photos were received and only if the photographer agrees that it is appropriate. In the event of an emergency, equipment failure or other unforeseen circumstance, the photographer will return any money given up to that point but claims no further liability. Client(s) agree that an entire shoot cannot be replicated, reenacted or repeated for the purpose of a re-shoot.
It is understood and agreed that no other photographer (Other than Shull Studios and Second Shooter) will be allowed to photograph or take pictures while the Photographer(s) is working. The photographer(s) shall be the exclusive photographer(s) retained by the Client for the purpose of photographing the event/session. Guests, Family and friends of the Client shall be permitted to photograph using mobile phones only as long as they shall not interfere with the Photographer’s duties.
PICK UP AND FINALIZATION
It is the responsibility of the client to pick up any prints/USBs in a timely manner. Pick up time must be appropriate with the photographer and made aware two days before arriving to the pick up location. It is recommended that the client pick up prints within the week that they arrive to avoid any delays or issues.
You will be contacted and made aware when your photos are ready.
