5. Retainer, Rescheduling, Late Arrivals & Cancelling
When reserving a session, a €50 none refundable reservation fee applies, which will be deducted from your overall purchase.
In the event that the Client/Model requests to reschedule a session, notice must be given at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled event.
The rescheduling must be within the same month of the original scheduled session. Reschedules can be made for emergencies, weather, sickness, and unforeseen circumstances.

If the Client/Model doesn’t show, or cancels 24 hours prior to session they will loose their spot and the reservation fee.
6. Orders and payment
The order of your goods must be placed at the viewing appointment after the shoot. Client/Model may reorder 14 days after the viewing appointment.
The order placed on the viewing appointment cannot be changed after that. Even if the Client doesn't want the goods they ordered any longer, they will still be invoiced for the original order.
Payments have to be made strictly 14 days from date of invoice to Simona Graszl via bank transfer or PayPal.
No goods will be delivered until the payment is made in full. The session fee will be invoiced even if the Model/Client doesn't want to order any additional images or products.
A fee of €5.00 may be made for each account reminder, duplicate invoice, or any other paperwork, correspondence or phone calls involved with the pursuing of a debt. This fee is non-refundable, and represents the additional time spent pursuing overdue invoices. After the second reminder the Photographer will forward your information to a collection agency, any further costs will be payed by the Client/Model and are not refundable.
7. Failure to Perform
The parties agree to cheerful cooperation and communication for the best possible result within the definition of this assignment. Due to the limited and subjective nature of the event, the Photographer cannot be held responsible for requested photographs not taken or missed, lack of coverage resulting from weather conditions, or schedule complications caused by but not limited to, anyone in or at the location.
The Photographer is not responsible for lost photo opportunities due to other cameras or flashes, the lateness of the clients or other principles. It is acknowledged that any lists submitted to the Photographer will be used for organizational purposes only and in no way represent photography that will actually be produced. The Photographer will do its best to fulfill all requests but can make no guarantees all images will be delivered.
The Photographer is not responsible if key individuals fail to appear or cooperate during photography sessions or for missed images due to details not revealed to the Photographer.
