vanwalk:photography | 2018 Packages and Booking Policies


We are thrilled to be welcoming a baby in mid February. As a result of this joyous time, availability for the coming year will be a little different. Weekend and weekday availability will limited compared to previous years. I will try my best to accommodate all my clients, but with a new baby along with our four year old, my schedule will not be as open as it has been. I will also not be booking any weddings this year. 


Packages this year are the same as last year, but have been adjusted to include tax instead of it being on top of the package pricing. I'm hoping this will make EMT and cash transactions more straight forward. Clients will still be required to pay a deposit upon my discretion, all deposits are non refundable, but can be used towards a different session if for some reason the session that was originally booked can no longer happen. 

By booking a session with me you hereby agree to the terms and conditions outlined in my contract, which can be downloaded via PDF on this site.

Your average wait time for photos is about 2-3 weeks. If your wait will be longer than this, I'll let you know. 

All sessions must be paid in full on the day of your shoot.

The packages below are valid from January 2018-December 2018. All prices now include tax. Some packages will have additional charges applied which are the responsibility of the client to know about (extra people, animals, overtime hours etc.) A list of additional charges can be found at the bottom of the pricelist.

Please note: All packages include digital files ONLY. None of these packages come with hard copy photo prints, it is the clients responsibility to order their own prints. I am however, more than happy to make recommendations on ordering prints & products. Package prices include your implied print release which allows unlimited printing rights to the images you order.

In order to order your images you'll need to have a computer or laptop to download the images too. If you do not have either, USB sticks can be purchased from me with your photos on them OR bring a USB stick with your name on it to your session. This will ensure that you are getting the highest quality images.

RAW files are kept for 3-6 months. After that only your proofs will be available to you.

Cancellation policy: If you have to cancel your photoshoot and are not able to reschedule, you forfeit whatever deposit you paid regardless of how much advanced notice you give.
