COVID 19 Questions

Q. What happens if my family gets Covid 19 before the session? A. You must wait or reschedule two weeks our after you’re not sick anymore before we can do the session. We will hold your deposit for next time. No refunds.

Q. What happens if the state or beaches get shut down because of Covid 19 and I’ve paid my $100.00 deposit? A. We will reschedule your session. No refunds because of the loss of business. We will extend the $100.00 deposit holding policy time frame by 6 months. You’ll now have 1.5 years to use your $100.00 deposit as a credit.

Q. What precautions are you taking while on a session? A. I take my own temperature each day. I try to stand at least 6 feet away at all times from myself to you and your family. For families who would like a (NO CONTACT) session. Please request 24 hours in advance so I can have my mask ready. Don’t worry, I’m a lot more than six feet from you while we shoot.

Q. What happens if the photographer gets sick from COVID 19? A. We will do our best to book with a backup photographer for the same price and or location. Or we can just schedule for next year with a $75.00 credit and $50.00 off coupon for the next session. So that would be $125.00 off. You also would not need to pay the $100.00 to hold your next date or time. You would have one year and six months to book your next session before you lose any money.

Real-world reviews from Spedale Jr. Photography customers.

“Don’t book us because of the great rates, 20+ years behind the camera experience or the fact you’ll get your photos back within 24/48 hours.” If you don’t book with us, be sure to do a lot of research on your next decision to use another photography business/(person). Be sure the company is real, make sure they have a lot of experience with photography and working with the general public. We understand price isn’t everything and that there are a lot of other photography companies to choose from. Nothing worse than showing up for a session and hoping the photographer shows up. Or when they do show up, it’s awkward the whole time because the photographer doesn’t know how to pose the models/families/subjects & commercial work”

Good luck, there is a lot to choose from. Or, just make it easy and book with us.
