Terms of Service
-IMPORTANT INFORMATION –
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS SITE!
Please read these Terms of Service (“Terms”) carefully. The following is a legal agreement between you (“Client”) and Christopher Reynolds (Photographer/Owner of Art of You Boudoir).
WHAT WE DO
Art of You Boudoir is a resource through which you may obtain portrait/boudoir photography services.
At Art of You Boudoir, your photos will NEVER be shared without your explicit permission; a completed Comfort Level Questionnaire and a signed Image Release. We will honor whatever level of privacy you would like. We also keep everything anonymous. We NEVER share the names of our boudoir clients unless they specifically request to be tagged on social media. Many clients are so proud of their images that they give us complete discretion in choosing images; some clients prefer to select the photos that are posted, some clients prefer that only their faceless pictures be put in our portfolio, and other clients are comfortable with anything being published, as long as it’s after a specific date (for example after they gift the images).
• Art of You Boudoir is committed to protecting your privacy online. Therefore, the personal and payment information you provide us is used only by us and will not be shared with any other parties, excluding purchases guests choose to make directly through affiliate links.
Due to this type of photo session's nature, we will not photograph any individual under the legal age of 18. No exceptions. We require you to bring a valid ID to your photo session as proof of age and reserve the right to refuse service if proof of age is not supplied.
The Copyright Act protects photographers by giving them/us the exclusive right to reproduce their photographs. It is illegal to copy, edit, alter or reproduce these photographs without our permission, and violators of this Federal Law will be subject to its civil and criminal penalties. Violations include, but are not limited to, making illegal copies, scanning, printing from home, or downloading from our website. Please understand that the photographer wishes to maintain complete control over the print quality, finishes, and presentation of the images. Any reproduction outside the studio may lower the image's quality and scar our reputation for providing superior portraits.
A retainer fee of $400 is required for all boudoir sessions. This is a non-refundable retainer. In the event of cancellation, the retainer paid is non-refundable. It shall be liquidated for damages to the Photographer in the event of a cancellation or breach of contract by the Client. No date is reserved until a retainer is received.
Our goal at Art of You Boudoir is to promptly provide all clients with a great experience. We understand that sometimes, unexpected delays can occur, and the need may arise to make schedule adjustments.
If you need to cancel your booked appointment, we respectfully request at least a 48-hour notice. For example, if your session was booked for 2 pm on Saturday the 9th, you will need to contact us via email no later than 2 pm Thursday the 7th, 48 hours before your scheduled appointment. Please be aware of our policy regarding missed bookings.
Any cancellation or reschedule made less than 48 hours will result in a cancelation fee equal to your session booking fee. We require a credit card to hold your appointment. Therefore, cancellation fees will be charged to your card on file. No-shows, late arrivals, and cancelations inconvenience not only our vendors but other clients as well.
If you are more than 15 minutes late for your session, we may not be able to accommodate you. In this case, the same cancellation fee will apply. However, we will do our best to reschedule your session for another convenient time.
Alternatively, you'll have the option of using the remainder of the time for your session, less the amount of time you were late. For example, if your session is booked for 2 hours, and you arrive 45 minutes late, we will have 1 hour and 15 minutes remaining for the session. In this case, we may not be able to accommodate all desired looks/locations from the session due to time constraints.
When applicable, you’ll receive an email from us for weather cancellations to let you know that your session needs to be rescheduled. Art of You Boudoir decides if the session needs to be rescheduled due to weather conditions. If canceled due to weather, you’ll receive an email with a list of available dates to reschedule. In a true, unavoidable emergency, your entire non-refundable cancellation fee will be credited and applied to the rescheduled session.
