Yes we do. We ask for $250 down Retainer fee.
A retainer fee—which is sometimes incorrectly referred to as a deposit—is a fee paid upon signing the wedding photography agreement that retains the wedding photographer's service for a particular date or period
What is a Retainer Fee?
What is a Retainer Fee?
Sometimes also referred to as a "Deposit" or "booking Fee", the correct terms is actually "Retainer Fee"
and it refers to an agreed sum of money paid to secure the services of a professional for an agreed upon time frame.
Retainer Fees are Standard in Wedding Photography
A retainer fee may be a new concept when you've just started looking into hiring a professional wedding photographer,
but the practice is standard in the wedding photography business.
What does it mean when someone is retained?
Once you've retained a service professional (by paying a fee and signing the contract)
you are offcially BOOKED and that professional
would take him or herlelf "off the market" so to speak, meaning that they would
not make it known that they are seeking work in that particular time frame.
With Wayne Hall Photography, once the retainer and signed agreement is completed
I would then be unavailable to anyone who inquires about your wedding date. So, any
other potential client that me be interested in a package that may be even BIGGER (or smaller)
than the one you chose would be turned away, if their wedding date happens to be the same date as yours.
Consider this: if the retainer fee was refundable and for some reason the client decides "at the last minute"
to request the money back- perhaps the wedding was cancelled for some reason- then the professional photographer
would have no income for the previous agreed upon date.
If this were to happen several times you can be sure the
professional photographer would soon no longer be in business.
By Paying the Retainer Fee:
you are paying for my promise to come photograph your wedding on the day of your wedding (plus any pre wedding engagement session or post wedding after session)
I will turn down other potential assignments for your wedding date.
you understand that if your wedding is cancelled (or rescheduled) the retainer will not be refunded.
