Return Policy

Our goal at Photography By Paul Smith is your complete satisfaction with your purchase.

In the case of camera failure, inclement weather, or any other unforeseen incident that prevents Photography By Paul Smith from shooting on a scheduled date the client will get a full refund of their deposit if applicable. No refund will be given under any circumstances if you fail to attend the activity on the day and at the time listed, when the booking was made.

Due to the nature of digital photography and the fact that photographs/prints, once sent, cannot be returned; Photography By Paul Smith has a strict NO REFUNDS POLICY. Once a transaction has been completed (i.e., the buyer selected and paid for the photo/print and then Photography By Paul Smith shipped the buyer the correct photograph/print) it is then considered non-refundable.

If a buyer has accidently selected and purchased an incorrect photo/print, he/she must notify Photography By Paul Smith, before receiving the “incorrect” photograph/print. Refunds will NOT be given due to “not liking a photo/print”, accidently selecting an incorrect photo/print after the buyer has already received the photograph/print, or any other reason.

If a mistaken photo/print is sent to the buyer, as documented on the invoice, Photography By Paul Smith will send the correct photo/print free of charge along with a digital request to agree to a license forbidding use of the mistaken photo/print sent originally to the buyer. This license will be kept in our database to protect the copyrights of Photography By Paul Smith.

Any questions regarding this Policy please call (250) 283-2129.
