FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How soon do I need to book my event?

Weddings are preferred to be booked at least 6 months prior to your wedding date to ensure you get the day.  For other events, however, I can get bookings as much as 48 hours in advanced, pending availability.


For weddings, a 25% deposit is required upon signing the contract, 25% by your wedding day, and 50% upon delivery.  For all other photography projects, no deposit is required, but payment is due the day of the event.

Do you require a deposit?


Your wedding deposit is completely refundable up to 6 months to your wedding date, after which, no refunds are available.  If your wedding date is changed to a later date, all monies can be paid towards that date.  The 6-month refund only applies to the original wedding date.

What is the cancelation policy?


Weddings can take anywhere from 4-6 weeks, and other projects can be as little as 5-7 days.

What is the turn around?


Do you travel?

For weddings, indeed!  As long as transportation and accommodations are covered.  However, I can be anywhere in Southern California from Santa Barbara to San Diego at no extra transportation cost.  I also cover the San Francisco Bay Area with no accommodations cost.


I see your wedding packages, but how much do you charge for other sevices like events or portraits?

It really depends on what event it is.  Please email lara.sumera@gmail.com for further inquiry.
