Payments, Refunds & Returns

Portrait Sessions

The session fee is paid in advance to secure your chosen date. It is non-refundable should you cancel, but is transferable to another date in the event you wish to reschedule with at least 48 hours notice prior to the session date. Special consideration is made for maternity and newborn sessions. In the case of inclement weather or any other unforeseen incident that prevents Suzanne Simmons Photography from shooting on schedule, the client will receive a refund of monies paid, if applicable (please see your specific contract for details). No refund will be given under any circumstances if you fail to attend your session as per the contracted date and time.

Weddings and Events

A non-refundable and non-transferable retainer is paid in advance to secure your wedding date. All fees are subject to state sales tax. Suzanne Simmons Photography will consider a refund or transfer of the retainer if the wedding must be canceled due to a) Hurricane, b) Military Deployment, or c) Death or Serious Illness of the Bride or Groom.

Due to the custom nature of photography, all sales are final and non-refundable.  If a mistaken photo is sent to the buyer, as documented on the invoice, or if a package is damaged in shipping, Suzanne Simmons Photography will send a replacement photo to the buyer at no charge.

Albums ordered are considered a custom product and therefore there are no refunds on any album orders. There are no refunds on any design order.  All albums are made to order and cannot be returned or exchanged unless:

  • a manufacturer defect is evident and reported within 48 hours (2 business days) from the date it was received,
  • damaged during shipping (a separate claim must be filed with the shipping carrier and also must be reported within 48 hours after being received),
  • or in the event that the order was erroneously processed (e.g. an error was made on the size of the book or color/style, compared to the original recorded order).

Suzanne Simmons Photography ensures that the prints and albums you receive meet the highest standards in every way and works with customers to approve designs and custom work before orders are placed. Payment of orders is due in full when the order is placed. All rates are subject to change at any time. In the interest of fairness to all customers, all rates are non-negotiable unless booked through a special promotion.

Shipping Policy

Prints and products arrive 4-6 weeks after payment is received. Albums take approximately 10 weeks as they are custom designed and hand made. Rush shipment is available on some items for an additional charge.
