“I have learned that high non-refundable retainers and requiring instant full payments from couples actually doesn’t always work for everyone. I don’t want to put my rad ass couples into a bind during one of the raddest times in their lives!” – Heather J. Keys, Why I Offer Wedding Photography Payment Plans To All Of My Couples.
Be sure to keep reading to find out why I offer payment plans to all my clients and how I do it!
I know that most of my rad ass couples have a lot on their plate while planning their wedding. There are tons of vendors who require hefty non-refundable retainers and within 30 days of signing a contract they have to pay the remaining invoice balance. Over the past 10+ years in the photography and wedding industry, I have learned that high non-refundable retainers and requiring instant full payments from couples actually doesn’t always work for everyone. I don’t want to put my rad ass couples into a bind during one of the raddest times in their lives
When planing your perfect wedding day, I want you to rest assured you can do so with a plan that works for you, your fiancé, and your wedding day budget.
Most of my rad ass wedding couples book their engagement session and wedding photography about 6-8 months out. Yes there are some that book a year+ out and some who have had to book with less time out due to many different reasons.
Everything done at Heather J. Keys Photography is done using an online Contract that has been approved and written by my attorney. I always send out a detailed outline of the invoice, which includes services and products that are requested. The invoice is paid online and you’ll always have access to it.
Q: How much is the Non-refundable retainer for your wedding photography services?
A: Typically it will be 30% to 50% of the total invoice, however I’m happy to split up the non-refundable retainer for services if needed.
Q: How much do I need to pay each months?
A: The amount each month will depend on what is contracted and invoice, minus the upfront non-refundable retainer. I can divide the payments up evenly and you can pay monthly. Or you can have specific amounts set up for each month. I want to make sure it’s a payment plan that works specifically for you.
Q: When does the invoice need to be paid by?
A: Invoice must be paid in-full no later than 30 days prior to your wedding date.
Q: Can I pay early or in full when I book?
I still have openings for the 2019 calendar, for both engagement portrait sessions and weddings. I’m actively booking the 2020 and 2021 calendar. If your wedding requires for me to travel, please reach out sooner rather than later to book your wedding.
For bookings & inquiries please be sure to submit an inquiry form!
As well as being a wildly fun and outgoing wedding and family photographer, I’ve also been fortunate enough to win some pretty rad photography awards both Nationally and Internationally. My images have been featured in well-known online and printed publications too. Woot woot!
Since being an “elder photographer”, I have also had several unique opportunities to speak on national stages while teaching and training up and coming wedding professionals within the industry. While that’s groovy and all, what makes me the proudest (and happiest) is being able to serve the rad couples that I work with.
It’s about getting you happily down the aisle. I’ll be there to capture the way you light up when you slip on your wedding dress or when you button up your suit jacket. I will be there the moment you see your love, standing there in all of their beauty. You’ll have every single magical moment captured, telling your perfect love story!
