Cancellation Policy

In the event that you do need to cancel either your shoot or viewing appointment, we require 48 hours notice. Failure to cancel your appointment within the timeframe will result in any booking fee been forfeited.

Why we take a £20 refundable booking deposit? We ask for the £20 as a commitment from you that you are going to turn up for your session for weekend appointments. The viewing appointment must be attended for the refund. Also, any free image (print or Digital) will be forfeited if the viewing appointment is not attended.

La Lumiere Photography will always try to accommodate changing schedules and will be happy to refund or postpone any shoot or viewing session if cancelled or rescheduled within the notice period.

Once an order has been processed by our post-production team no refunds can be made.
