What do we do if it’s raining during our session?
If, in the opinion of the Photographer, inclement weather or other adverse conditions prevent the creation of a successful session to the artistic standards of Photographer, Photographer may elect to use an alternate location or to reschedule the session. Photographer will notify the Client at least 12 hours for morning sessions and 4 hours in advance for afternoon/evening session and will base the decision off of local weather forecasts. Photographer's policy is that if it is a 60% chance of rain or more, the session will be rescheduled; UNLESS, client chooses to go forward with session and work with photographer to find optional covered areas. If the chance of rain is less than 60%, Photographer will leave it up to the Client to decide whether to reschedule and Photographer will inform Client of the implications of shooting in light rain or inclement weather.
When rescheduling Audrey Darke Photography will give clients her next availability and allow the client to choose from the dates/times at no rescheduling fee. If client is unavailable for Audrey Darke Photography next available dates/times a credit will be issued to be used when client and Audrey Darke Photography is next available. Credit must be used within one year of it being issued.
