policies



Deposits. All photo sessions require a $100 deposit at time of booking. This $100 will go towards your fee that is paid at time of session.  I accept Venmo (Cara-Walen) or PayPal (send payment to cara@walenphotography.com).  I can also accept your personal check (see mailing address on contact page).   After I receive your deposit, I will book your session and we'll discuss vision, location and style.

Balances. Final balances are due in full at the session. Payments are accepted by cash, check or Venmo/PayPal (send payment to cara@walenphotography.com). 

Cancellations/Rescheduling.  If you cancel and re-schedule more than 72 hours before time of session you do not have to pay another deposit.  Simply contact me to reschedule as soon as you know of a date conflict.  Any amount of time less than 72 hours, the deposit is forfeited and I will need another $100 deposit to book new date.  


Inclement Weather. It rains a lot in Florida. Unless they are calling for rain around the time of your session, we will shoot. In the case of inclement weather, I will contact you to reschedule the session at no penalty and there is no need for a re-deposit. 

Reshoots.  Sometimes catastrophe strikes. In the event of technical failure either due to media or equipment, a reshoot will be arranged at the client and photographer's earliest convenience.  The client will receive a refund of 25% of the session fee in the event of a technical reshoot. If a client chooses not to purse a reshoot, a full refund will be given.

Galleries.  Sneak previews are posted on Facebook (with your approval) within 72 hours of your session.  Full galleries are completed within 2-3 weeks following your session and all full size images are made available immediately via download from your gallery.  All galleries and downloads will require a password which will be given to you via email notification of finalized gallery.
