Wedding Retainer Fee:
There is a $200 Non-refundable retianer fee due to hold your wedding date. If you cancel at anytime, you will not receive your $200 back. It is subtracted from the total of your package, so it is also considered a down payment.
This provides compensation to the photographer for the loss of income the photographer would have received from another wedding date which could have been retained by another customer for a wedding not cancelled. So only the fees paid to reserve us for the wedding date and time are kept as liquidated damages if the wedding is cancelled for any reason. The legal foundation of the non-refundable reservation retainer is that the photographer will not reserve any other wedding for that date and time and for this reason the payments are legal non-refundable retainer payments.
