BOOKING FEE & PAYMENT
A booking fee of half the wedding package is required to hold the date of your event. No date is reserved until the booking fee is received. The balance of the complete package price must be paid at least 14 days prior to the event.

Additional custom orders (prints, enlargements, frames, albums etc) must be paid in full at the time of order.
Therese Winberg Photography must be notified immediately of any changes in the schedule or location, at least one week prior to the scheduled date of event.

There is a 3 working day cooling-off period from the date of signing this contract and for any orders placed. After this time, there shall be no refund of the booking fee. If the event is cancelled within three months of the date, the Client shall pay the balance of the contract due to the high probability that Therese Winberg Photography will not be able to further book that date. Once the balance is paid, it is non-refundable, however, if Therese Winberg Photography is able to rebook that date, then Therese Winberg Photography shall refund to Client an amount equal to the invoiced amount less any difference between the invoiced amount and the fee paid to Therese Winberg Photography in connection with the replacement booking if the fee for the replacement booking is less than the fee under this contract (excluding the booking fee). Any other arrangements shall be discussed between the Client and Therese Winberg Photography. All arrangements will be put in writing. Cancellation must be in writing even if a phone call was made to inform Therese Winberg Photography of the cancellation.
