Specialty Equipment: Although I have a fully equipped studio, on occasion there will be an item that is not kept in house and will be needed for the session. This is typically associated with Product Photography.

Refunds and Satisfaction

Agreements between Brian Vogel Photography and Clients shall not become effective until the initial amount due has been paid. At the time the contract takes effect, Brian Vogel Photography shall reserve the date and time agreed upon, and not make any other reservations or accept any other clients for said date and time. For this reason, in the event that a Client cancels the contract for any reason, all monies paid shall be retained by Brian Vogel Photography in order to offset its loss of business.

Unfortunately, since this is a service I am providing and I am charging for my time, I am not able to provide a standard refund. However, in the event that a client is not pleased with the images created during a session, a re-shoot can be scheduled at no additional charge to fix the issues and capture the desired images.


I understand that Life Gets in the Way sometimes. If you need to reschedule your session for whatever reason that is perfectly fine as long as it is addressed at least 7 days before the scheduled session.
If an emergency or unforeseen incident occurs you will be able to reschedule your session for free 1 time as long as I am given notice at least 1 hour before your session time.
