1. When hiring Visual Enterprises for your next event, it is understood that this studio is the exclusive official photographer and/or videographer retained to perform the services requested.

2. A 50% retainer is required to hold your event date. ALL RETAINERS PAID ARE NON REFUNDABLE.

3. In the case of a postponement or cancellation of your event, all monies paid are non refundable.

When a client books an event that client has now RESERVED A DATE on our calendar. The retainer, simply and effectively explained, is used to BOOK A DATE ON THE CALENDAR. Once that retainer is paid, the photographer takes that date off the calendar to other potential clients. Now that date is unavailable to other potential clients, and can’t be booked by anyone else because the client paid a retainer. A non-refundable retainer. This business practice is standard for the industry. There is a very important reason why it's non-refundable. The income from that blocked off date is being counted on by that photographer. So if a client cancels, reschedules, or is a no-show, that photographer can at least recoup that retainer from all of the missed opportunity for other clients who may have booked that date.

4. The studio takes utmost care in respect to the exposure, development and delivery of products and services ordered. However, if the studio fails to comply with the terms of this contract due to any event or act outside the control of the studio, the studio's liability is limited to refund of the retainer.

9. NOTICE OF COPYRIGHT: It is ILLEGAL to copy, alter or reproduce photos, videos and/or digital files created by this studio without written permission given by this studio. Violators of this Federal Law will be subject to it's civil and criminal penalties.
