Terms & conditions

When booking Val Tannuzzi Photography, LLC, the client agrees to the following terms:

Session Fee.

A retainer of $50 is required for all portrait sessions. The retainer shall be applied towards the total cost of the service to be rendered. If you need to cancel, you must provide at least 72 hours notice in order to receive a full refund. The remaining Session Fee balance is due at the time of your photoshoot. This fee covers the time of photographer, retouching and creative editing of images, and a gallery of images.

Methods of payment accepted: Cash, check, money order (yes, it's still a thing!), Venmo & Cash App.

Late Arrivals.

Any Client that is late arriving to the session will have the amount of time late deducted from the time allotted for the session. This may also result in a reduction of the number of proofs and edited images (please keep in mind that I might have someone scheduled after you).

Rescheduling & Cancellations. 

If an illness or situation prevents a photo session from taking place, client may reschedule their session at least 2 days prior to their shoot without penalty. (Rescheduling does not apply for out of town sessions) 


If for any reason the client is not entirely satisfied, please communicate with me immediately so the issue can be resolved. Re-shoots are determined at the discretion of the photographer. Re-shoots will not be given for poor choices of clothing, make-up, hair or by not following the recommendations of the photographer. Re-shoots will be taken place at the photographer's location.


Failure to Perform.

If the Photographer cannot perform this Contract due to fire or other casualty, strike, act of Mother Nature, or other cause beyond the control of the parties, or due to Photographer’s illness or emergency, the Photographer and Client shall make every attempt to reschedule the session. If a reschedule is unable to be agreed upon, Photographer shall return the retainer to the client and shall have no further liability. This limitation on liability shall also apply in the event that photographic materials are damaged in processing, lost through camera or media malfunction, lost in the mail, or otherwise lost or damaged without fault on the part of the Photographer. 

Proofs & Archive

You will have the opportunity to review images directly from the camera as we shoot. I will show you your images throughout the shoot, to ensure we are getting exactly what we need from the session. 


Gallery of all client’s images will be available for viewing within 48 hours of session date. These images are high resolution without watermarks and yours to keep. All images will be available for one (1) month following client viewing date. After one (1) month, all images will be purged from photographer’s Google drive. Please make sure you download all files to your drive or device.


All payments are due in full at the time of the photo shoot. Orders will not be processed until payment in full is received.
