If you wish us to start work (photoshoot or services) sooner, you must specifically instruct us in writing (letter or email) of the date wish work to start on (before the 14-day cooling off period ends), and thus choose to opt out of your right to cancel.

4.5.2.    Where significant changes to the venue, date or activities mean LBP cannot perform our obligations under the same terms as agreed, we may choose to offer a new quote and contract or additional work with an additional cost attached. You will need to agree and sign and then receive written confirmation from LBP that we will provide the services you want before the new contract replaces the previously invalidated contract.
