Terms & Conditions
Location and Lighting:
Scheherazade (referred to as 'the photographer' henceforth) is happy to photograph in any 'suitable' location of the client’s choosing either indoors or outdoors, in private or public spaces in Dubai. It is the client’s responsibility to organize the location and obtain any necessary permissions. When lights, backgrounds etc are required it is the client’s responsibility to inform the photographer of their requirement when making the booking, in order for the photographer to budget and bring the correct equipment with her.
Where the shoot extends beyond the time booked, the client will be charged extra per hour if the photographer is available to continue working past their booked time. This includes any delay in starting due to make-up, models, clients etc not being ready at the booked time. The photographer will allow 15 minutes to set-up equipment and discuss your requirements pre-shoot.
50% deposit is required to book a session. The remaining amount needs to be paid on the day of the session. The photographer will not start editing the photos or send any files to the client if complete payment is not done. Booking deposits are non-refundable for cancelations, however, the date can be changed once, with minimum 3 days notice (1 week for weddings) where an alternative date is available. No refunds are available for any reason.
Photo Selection and Delivery Timelines:
Photos must be selected within 1 month or the photographer will assume the right to choose the photos on your behalf as the final choice. No amendments will be made after editing is completed. For events, the photographer will choose all the best photos from the event. Edited files will be provided within 2 weeks of final payment and image selection. Requests for additional retouched photos must be paid for in advance of the additional editing being carried out. Photos will not be sent if this payment is not received.
Digital File Delivery System:
The photographer will upload all the best photos from the photo shoot on a secure website. The client will select all the photos they want and only these photos will be edited and provided to the client for download through a dropbox link.
The photographer endeavors to process all photos as quickly as possible and return them within 2 weeks (6 weeks for weddings), however, the photographer understands some clients require a more urgent service, therefore, we offer a 48 hour express option (10 days for weddings) for an additional 25% of your package price, when possible.
