POSTPONEMENT: Client acknowledges that in the event that there is a postponement of the assignment the studio will incur expenses and financial loss. Therefore, client agrees to notify the studio of a postponement at least forty-eight (48) hours prior to the scheduled assignment. If client provides studio with notice of a postponement less than forty-eight (48) hours before commencement of the assignment, client shall pay a fee to studio to cover the expenses that the studio would not otherwise have incurred had client not postponed the contract.
“Postponement” is the rescheduling of the Assignment by the client at least 48 hours prior to the Assignment to a mutually agreeable date, and no more than 20 calendar days after the original Assignment date.
CANCELLATION: Client acknowledges that in the event that there is a cancellation of the assignment the studio will incur expenses and financial loss. Therefore, client agrees to notify the studio of a cancellation at least 72 hours prior to the expected cancellation date in order to minimize the studio’s costs, expenses, and loss of income. Due to the custom assignment and inability of studio to perform other sessions during time reserved for client, if studio has received payment for a scheduled assignment, client will not be entitled to a refund if he or she cancels the assignment.
“Cancellation” means that the assignment is cancelled by client and not rescheduled. In the event of cancellation, client will be responsible for those fees.
