Policies, Terms, and Conditions

Please keep this for your records.


To avoid any surprises, please be sure to carefully review our policies and agreements. 

Booking Policy

Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee my availability without a deposit. A 50% retainer deposit is required to secure the session date, and the remaining balance is due on the day of the shoot. Additional fees, such as overages, will be due 10-14 days before your images are delivered.  By paying your deposit, you are indicating your agreement with our terms.

All bookings will be held for 24 hours without a retainer deposit. You must complete your deposit within 24 hours to secure your booking.


Assistants & Staff Helpers

Candied Soul Photography has the right to allow additional photographers on location at no additional cost to the client for educational and training purposes.

Session Safety Guidelines

We aim to maximize the value of your investment by utilizing the entire scheduled time for your shoot. To prevent any unnecessary distractions and delays, please review the following:

  • No infants or other children not being serviced are allowed inside.

  • Only one additional person/assistant will be allowed in the session with you and they must wear a mask for the duration of the session.

  • Please bring your own beauty maintenance items (i.e. wipes, hairbrushes, lotion, etc.).

  • Please DO NOT bring confetti as a prop.

  • Please come dressed and ready to begin (although the studio will have a changing area, safely dressing or changing on location (outside) must be at your own discretion).

  • If you have any allergies (LIKE LATEX allergies) or health concerns, please inform the photographer beforehand to ensure a safe environment during the session.

  • Bring water to stay hydrated, especially if it's an outdoor shoot or in a studio with limited amenities.

  • Bring walking shoes (for outdoor sessions)

  • In case of an outdoor session, be prepared for weather conditions. Dress appropriately and bring necessary items like sunscreen or umbrellas.

  • Provide the photographer with emergency contact information in case of unforeseen circumstances. This is especially important for outdoor or remote locations.

Remember, focusing on you and safety is our priority, and communication with the photographer is key to a successful and secure photography experience.


Desired Scenes

The artistic design is at our discretion, and no specific shots, poses, or images are guaranteed.

Digital Images

You'll receive 15 digital images electronically through a password-protected webpage. Any extra images beyond the agreed amount are provided at our discretion.

It is not the intent of Candied Soul Photography  to deliver blurry, unusable, unstable or out-of-focus photos, although this MAY happen.  Candied Soul Photography reserves the right to remove any mis-delivered images from the client’s webpage or list of favorites at any time and without notification to the client.

We usually aim to provide a Photographer’s Favorite Sneak Peek within 3 business days after the session and deliver the final edited images within 7-14 business days after your chosen “favorites list” is completed and sent to your editor. However, I understand the importance of timely delivery, especially for such a significant event. If you have a specific date in mind for the final photos, please let me know, and I'll do my best to accommodate. Rush orders may incur an additional fee.

Physical Prints

While your session includes a print release for personal printing, we recommend using our professional printers for the best results. You'll receive a high-quality, watermark-free image print for your home or office.
