(i)Photo Sessions

The Client agrees to pay a "Retainer" equal to 50% of the full Session fee upon signing this Agreement. The remaining balance is to be paid prior to schedule session date. No photography will take place until the balance is paid. Additionally, no rights to images will be offered until the Session fee is paid in full.


A 50% deposit is required before the commencement of work. The remaining balance is due upon completion or within 60 days from the date of the initial estimate, whichever comes first.


Upon signing this Agreement and processing the Client's retainer payment, the Photographer will work to establish the Client's general availability to book their Session. Once a general session date is established, the Photographer will provide a precise Session appointment time to the Client via email. A Session will be considered "Booked" once the Client has paid the deposit and agreed to the terms and conditions. The Client will receive a reminder of the Booked Session 24 hours before the scheduled date.


Lateness will result in a reduction of the Session time. Refunds or extended session time will be at the studio’s discretion.


It is understood and agreed that no other professional photographer will be allowed to photograph or take pictures during the Session while the Photographer and the affiliate photographer(s) of Sean Turi Photography Studio are working.


Ownership of Work: Sean Turi Photo Studio will retain all right, title, and interest in all Work Product. Client (on behalf of itself and any participants at the Session) hereby grants the Photographer and its service providers an exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide, irrevocable, transferable, and sublicensable license to use any materials created by the Client or attendees during the performance of the Services that may be protected by copyright or any intellectual property rights ("Portrait Session Materials") as part of any Work Product or in connection with the marketing, advertising, or promotion of the Photographer's services, including the Photographer's studio, portfolio, website, or social media, in any format or medium. Client acknowledges and affirms that no other person or entity has any rights that may prevent or restrict the Photographer from using Portrait Session Materials as provided herein.


If the Photographer is unable to perform this Agreement in whole or in part due to circumstances beyond the Parties' control, such as sudden illness, injury, lost equipment, pandemics, or acts of God, the Photographer will return all retainers and fees to the Client. However, the Photographer shall have no further liability with respect to this Agreement. If photographic materials are damaged in processing, lost through camera malfunction, lost in the mail, or otherwise lost or damaged without fault on the part of the Photographer, the Photographer will return all retainers and fees, but will not be liable for any other injuries.

We want you to feel confident that you've hired us for our unique approach and style. Trust us to capture your image in a way that reflects our shared vision. If at any point you have concerns, let's talk it through for the best possible outcome.
