Terms & Conditions
This document details the current terms and conditions for Aneta Jeremiasova Portraits/Black Rose Boudoir.
Thank you for booking a portrait photography session with Aneta Jeremiasova Portraits (“me/I/my/photographer”). Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully, as they apply to your (“you/client”) booking (“Photography Services/photo shoot session/sitting”).
I am happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have in relation to these T&Cs at any time. However, continuing with your booking means you are agreeing with these terms.
I reserve the right to change these Terms & Conditions at any time, and I will give reasonable notice to you if this happens.
These Terms and Conditions constitute an agreement between the parties and supersede all previous agreements between the parties relating to its subject matter. No variation or agreed termination of these terms and conditions (or of any document referred to in it) shall be effective unless it is in writing. If any provision of this agreement (or part of any provision) is found by any court or other authority of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, the other provisions shall remain in force. A person who is not a party to this agreement shall not have any rights under or in connection with it.
This agreement and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of the Netherlands.
Your booking and/or payment of your session fee signifies acceptance of these terms and conditions as a legally binding contract, unless otherwise objected to explicitly and in writing, prior to accepting my service. No variation of this contract shall be recognised unless explicitly agreed to in writing.
Any booking or payment made to me (including the session fee) indicates that you have read, understood and agreed to all the terms and conditions as set out in this document, in its entirety. If this contract has to be enforced, you agree to mediation instead of court proceedings.
COPYRIGHT & OWNERSHIP
The copyright and all other rights in the Photos shall be retained by Aneta Jeremiasova Portraits. The Photographer asserts the right to be credited as the author of the Photos. Any unauthorized reproduction or modification of any images will constitute a breach of copyright. This includes making copies or ‘screen shots’ of images shared by the photographer online.
Sometimes the photographer may share previews or “sneak peeks” of your images, or give you access to an online gallery of images. These images must not be copied, screen shot, downloaded, edited or altered in any way.
If you wish to share photographs to your own network (i.e. Facebook, blog or any other online channels) you agree to do so only once you have purchased and paid for them.
Clients are not permitted to take their own photographs (“selfies”) at any portrait photography session. Clients are not permitted to take photographs of the studio.
Your portrait session experience is reserved only once paid for. Session fees are retainers and are non-refundable and contribute towards the photographer’s time planning your shoot with you and creating and sending out your Prep information.
RESCHEDULING & REFUNDS/CANCELLATIONS
Sometimes it is necessary for the photographer or client to reschedule, for example due to injury or serious illness. If there are unavoidable circumstances that affect your ability to take part in our photo shoot session, then I am happy for us to reschedule once, within a three-month period. Please let me know as soon as possible that you can no longer make the session, and at least 72 hours in advance.
Please note that any new date will be subject to the Photographer’s availability. I shall use reasonable endeavors to arrange an alternative date for your photo shoot session.
Please note that in the lead-up to Christmas and other special occasions, rescheduling may not be possible until the following year.
In the event that we cannot agree to another date, or if you are unable to attend your re-booked session, then your session fee will be lost.
Your session fee is non-refundable should you decide to cancel your portrait shoot.
Please note that all Gift Vouchers and Gift Certificates are non-refundable.
If you are taken ill by an infectious disease, you must let me know and rearrange your session until you are fully recovered and no longer contagious. This is to protect the health of all my clients and my team of makeup artists. If a client attends a session while unwell and unintentionally passes on an illness to the photographer, resulting in loss of income due to missed work, the client may be held responsible for covering the documented financial losses incurred. This provision emphasizes our commitment to maintaining a healthy working environment for all parties involved.
Please inform me on booking if you or anyone attending your photography session suffers from any health conditions including allergies, photosensitive epilepsy, medical issues, physical difficulties and disabilities etc.
PRICES & PAYMENTS
The price for your photo shoot session will be as agreed at the time of booking. Booking your session by paying your session fee guarantees that you receive my current portrait rates. Sessions rescheduled by the client are subject to the prices current at the time of rescheduling. Prices on the website or on marketing materials may be out of date, and I reserve the right to adjust prices at any time without prior notice. All prices are in euros.
All photoshoot sessions must be taken within 3 months of the session fee payment being made. Any exceptions to this need to be agreed in writing, and the current prices and booking conditions will apply.
The session doesn't include the provision of actual photographs but rather covers the photographer's time, consultation, preparation, complimentary makeup, and wardrobe cleaning.. Clients pay a fee for the photographer's services, time, and expertise, and then separately purchase the actual photographs. This approach allows clients to have a customized and professional photography experience without committing to specific products until after the session. It also gives them the flexibility to choose the images they want to purchase based on the quality of the photographer's work.
The balance for actual photography products is to be paid in full immediately at the ordering session after the photoshoot, albums or other products are ordered on your behalf. Payment can be made by Bank Transfer, Card Payment via PayPal, or via cash/debit/credit card in person.
In the event of an unpaid balance after the specified payment period, Photographer reserves the right to engage a debt collection lawyer or debt collection company. Prior to such action, the Photographer will make reasonable efforts to communicate and send reminders regarding the outstanding balance. Any costs associated with debt collection, including legal fees and collection agency fees, will be the responsibility of the client. This provision is implemented to protect the financial integrity of Aneta Jeremiasova Portraits. We encourage open communication to resolve any payment issues promptly.

I will use reasonable endeavors to supply the Photography Services described on my website and marketing materials in a professional manner.
You agree to assist and cooperate with me in all matters relating to the Photography Services and to supply me with all information reasonably requested in order for me to carry out the Photography Services. You agree to do everything you can and that I request. Although I will do everything I can to make the experience engaging and enjoyable, you understand that I am not responsible for any photoshoot participants who refuse to cooperate, and that this may impact on the number and quality of the images I am able to capture.
It’s not always possible to remove snot, sleep crusts, food crumbs or dribble and is rarely possible to fix creases and hair in Photoshop. In addition, it always looks better to fix these things beforehand, so please make sure everything is how you want it to look in the final images before we take any pictures.
You agree to take responsibility for your own safety throughout your portrait session, recognising that there are additional hazards to watch out for in a professional photography studio, including, but not limited to, lights and light stands, background sheets and background stands, electrical equipment, trip hazards, fall hazards etc. If your child(ren) is posed in, on or near a prop or another member of your family, you agree to remain nearby, vigilant and responsible for their safety at all times.
You agree not to take pictures on your own camera or phone during the portrait session or reveal, nor to take screenshots from your online gallery.
