Booking & Cancellation Policy



For all regular sessions and events a 50% non-fundable session retainer is required to book and hold the date for your session and serves as a cancellation fee. However, the fee can be credited towards a future session. The remaining balance is due the session date.

For mini-sessions, a 100% non-fundable session retainer is due immediately to book and hold the date of your event.

PAYMENT: All retainer fees must be paid immediately and session and other packages (plus taxes) can be paid via money order, certified check, cash, Visa, MasterCard or AMEX.


For regular sessions and events, non-fundable session retainer paid to book the session date will act as a cancellation fee. As previously stated, the non-fundable fee can be credited towards a future session if the client reschedules the appointment by calling 72 hours prior to the date of session and re-booking at an agreeable date and time.

For weather cancellations, the client will receive an email to inform the session cancellation. GDP has the ultimate decision on if the session needs to be rescheduled due to weather conditions.
