Endless & Breezy
Weather and Cancellation Policy
Weather in Telluride happens, but I have not been able to accurately predict its timing yet. Ultimately, we are both subject to the weather's whims and sometimes, while rarely, it hits right in the middle of a photo session.
With 300 hundred days of sunshine a year, cancellations due to weather hardly ever happen. When it happens, they occur more frequently in the summer because rain (as opposed to snow) actually gets you wet. In the winter, snow works, and it is stunningly beautiful to have snow falling during a session so cancellations are less frequent. Choosing great photo-ready snow ready attire helps. The good news is that inclement weather often only lasts for 15-30 minutes and after hundreds of photo sessions, I have only had to cancel a couple of sessions, so I remain hopeful we can always work it out or wait it out. Ultimately, the final call on cancellation is up to you, and my fee chart below will help you with that decision. But, I will stay in close touch with you when weather might be an issue.
When you schedule a session with me, I am turning away other work, and I carve out time in my schedule to work your session, set you up in my system, and with your input, make solid plan for your session. As a result, I have to charge a fee when you have to cancel or change your date. I will do everything I can to stay in touch about the weather.
CANCELLATION FEE SCHEDULE:
Date Change - If you have to change your date due to anything out of my control including illness or weather, the change fee is just $25. While, I cannot guarantee that I will have another date available, especially if you are vacationing here, but will do everything I can to make it work for you, even if we switch to a sunrise session instead of a sunset session. I really want to photograph you, so I try to find way to get that done.
