DIGITAL AGREEMENT By completing online form with your details when you make purchases on jessienian.com, you hereby agree to enter into a contract with Jessie Nian Photography as detailed below. This contract complies with English Law and is subject to normal terms and conditions as a written contract would be.

1. Booking Fee and Payments

All payments on this website are processed automatically via PayPal, Strip or Square Appointments. Bank transfer and cash can also be accepted as a method of payment. Please contact us if you would like to pay using this method.

To secure your booking with the Photographer you are required to pay either a non-refundable deposit/session fee, or you have the option to pay in full when you place your order. We will email you to acknowledge your order and payment. The Client acknowledges that the booking fee is non-refundable or transferable in the event of cancellation by the Client.

After you have viewed your proofs gallery and chosen one of the packages or products, the final balance is required within 24 hours. If the final balance is not received then the Photographer may affect the delivery period. All optional additional goods are payable in full on ordering after the photo shoot.

2. Cancellation, RESCHEDULING and refund policy


In the unlikely event that the Client should need to cancel a booking the following will apply.

(a) Cancellation 7 days before the shoot: The non-refundable deposit is retained and final balance refunded.

(b) In the case where the Photographer is able to rebook the date with an equivalent booking, no cancellation fee will apply and the deposit and final balance will be refunded.

We may cancel your Photo Shoot for any reason prior to the Photo Shoot Date. We will then provide a full refund of the Total Session Fee, unless we agree a rescheduled Photo Shoot Date with you.

We may terminate your Photo Shoot on the Photo Shoot Date if we consider there are extenuating circumstances, for example, inappropriate behaviour or a Model is ill. We are not required to reschedule the Photo Shoot or refund any of the Total Session Fee to you in these circumstances.

Defective Items and Returns

We are under a legal duty to supply Packages and Artwork Products that are in conformity with these Terms and Conditions. You should check your delivered Package and Artwork Products and advise us in writing of any defects or errors as soon as possible. Nothing in these terms will affect your legal rights.

Order Cancellation

Your Photographs and Artwork Products are personalised for you so you do not have any right to cancel your order and we are unable to refund or offer an exchange if you change your mind. This doesn’t affect your statutory rights.

3. The Photoshoot

We will use all reasonable endeavours to hold the Photo Shoot on the Photo Shoot Date, at the Photo Shoot Location, subject to our cancellation, rescheduling and refund policy set out in section 8 below.

Due to the nature of the subjects of the photographs we take during your Photo Shoot (“Photographs”), we cannot guarantee any particular outcomes or guarantee the fulfilment of any specific requests for the Photo Shoot. However, we will conduct the Photo Shoot using professional skill and care.

In any event, we will endeavour to accommodate any reasonable requests from you regarding the artistic direction of the Photo Shoot, but the Photographer retains absolute discretion as to the nature of the Photographs.

A parent or guardian must be present at all times if we are photographing children. You must not take any photographs during the Photo Shoot without first obtaining permission from the Photographer.

4. How to order packages and artwork products

Following your Photo Shoot, we will prepare and make available a selection of proofs of the Photographs from your Photo Shoot (“Your Proofs Gallery”). At our option, we may present Your Proofs Gallery to you either in person or an online gallery. In either case, we aim to have Your Proofs Gallery ready within 14 days of the Photo Shoot Date, but during busy periods this timeframe may be extended.

The number of Photographs in Your Proofs Gallery will vary from session to session. We will take into consideration your specific requests as regards the contents of Your Proofs Gallery, but we retain absolute discretion regarding:

which Photographs we include in Your Proofs Gallery (it is acknowledged that not all Photographs taken during the Photo Shoot will be included); and

the application of any digital editing to any Photographs.

Requests you make for specific corrections to images, or re-editing of images, may attract additional costs. We also accommodate specialist or bespoke requests for retouching of Photographs at additional cost. We may need to refer certain retouching services to our third party partners. We will advise you of the costs upon request. Please note that we do not provide raw images.

If we offer an online gallery option, you may be invited to order from Your Proof Gallery through an online gallery after your presentation
