Payment and Sales Tax Questions - Helpful photography posts from jRegentc Photography
  1. How do I reserve you for my date?
    A: All dates are reserved once we receive your signed contract and deposit.
  2. What if we exceed our contracted time for our engagement shoot and/or wedding day coverage?
    A: Standard rates apply for overtime. Overtime is billed at the rate of $500/hour per Photographer.
  3. Is there an additional fee if we pay via credit card?
    A: No. Although we are charged a fee for all credit cards, we consider it a cost of doing business. However, we do offer other solutions that we do not get charged a fee.
  4. If we cancel the wedding will we receive our deposit back?
    A: Unfortunately no. Retainer fees are used to reserve your date. Once we’ve reserved your date, we do not accept new clients for your date and have lost potential business. However, you may be able to reschedule to a different date.
  5. If we change our wedding to a different date will we be able to use our deposit towards a future date?
    A: Generally no, but this is taken on a case by case basis. The reason for canceling and our availability is taken into account. Also, if rates change from your original date to your new date, the new rates will apply.
  6. If I pay for my package in cash will we be able to avoid paying sales tax or receive a discount?
    A: Unfortunately, collecting in cash does not exempt a photography studio from paying California sales tax on the amount of the package price when a physical product is delivered, whether that product be an album or any other physical product. However, we do offer tax-free services and packages that fall within California State Law if you would like a service only packages.
