Terms and Conditions
By paying the deposit (or paying in full), you agree to the terms and conditions.
Deposits and Payments
A $100 deposit is required to book your session. An invoice will be sent to your email. The deposit is deducted from your total. For example, if you owe $450 for your session, your remaining balance after the deposit is $350. The remaining balance is due on or before your session date by invoice that will be sent to your email. Paying in full via online invoice is required to book any available mini sessions. Mini Sessions are non refundable. We can reschedule a mini session if it rains.
Limit of Liability
By hiring Photography by Alicia Marie, you agree that the maximum limits of liability by Photography by Alicia Marie, our photographers and all agents, is limited the total amount paid by you (the client) to Photography by Alicia Marie. By paying the deposit, or in full, you agree that you are responsible for your own health & wellbeing during your session and any possible injuries are not the responsibility of your photographer(s).
A non refundable deposit is required to reserve your photos session. I completely understand that things happens and there are some things that are out of our control. The non refundable deposit may be refunded in the following situations:
- life threatening weather conditions
- life threatening illness
- death in the family
Photo Delivery Policy
Your online gallery will be sent to your email within 2 weeks after your photo session (up to 4 weeks for large weddings). If you booked an available mini session, your online gallery will be available within 3 days.
Print Store Policy
You have the option to order prints, wall art, and greeting cards directly from your personalized online print store. There are some unique wall art options such as wood prints and metal prints, as well as framed prints and canvas. You will be able to access this store directly from your online photo gallery. If you do not want to order prints from your online print store, a print release form will be sent to your email for you to sign. A print release form is simply a contract stating that you, the client, are allowed to use the photos taken by PBAM for personal use only. Your photographer will also sign this form. After signing, the print release form will be available to download and print if the printer you choose requires a physical copy.
Photo Storage Policy
Your online gallery will be available to you for 90 days following the date of delivery of your gallery. We cannot guarantee that your photos will be live and available after 90 days. By paying the deposit or in full, you agree to download your digital images from your online gallery within 90 days. We highly suggest making 3 separate digital copies of your files by using external hard-drives, flash drives, and online storage options. This way you can avoid the heartbreak of losing your memories by having a backup plan in case you lose your digital files by accident or natural disaster. We also suggest printing your images. You have the option to order prints and wall art on your online gallery store which will be delivered directly to your door!
By paying the deposit, you agree that your deposit is nonrefundable if any restrictions arise due to the coronavirus. If you have paid in full, however, and your session or event CANNOT take place due to local or federal government restrictions, the balance minus your deposit will be refunded. Your photo session will be rescheduled for a later date. Your photographer will not be wearing a mask unless you request for them to do so. Photography by Alicia Marie will respect your choices if you choose to wear a mask and/or request your photographer to wear a mask. Photographers at Photography by Alicia Marie are not required to make public any personal health information.
Social Media, Advertising, and Blog Disclaimer

If you would not like your photos posted or printed anywhere for advertising purposes, please let me know at the time of booking and I will be happy to keep the images private. We will both sign a provided document stating you'd like your images to remain private.
