COVID-19 POLICIES & RESCHEDULING YOUR WEDDING

TO ALL MY WONDERFUL 2020 COUPLES:

My heart is with you all during these challenging times! I want you to be aware of my availability before starting the process of rescheduling your wedding date to avoid any overlaps or additional hurdles.

To make things easy I have created this guide including steps to rescheduling, my availability calendar for 2021, my rescheduling policy, new studio policies and links to wedding blogs providing phenmomal advice to sooth your minds during this time.

01. CONTACT VENUE

You deserve to have your wedding day! Postpone your wedding date, do not cancel it.  Contact your venue first and ask for dates they have available in 2021. Venues typically only book 1 wedding a day so it is important that they are consulted with first about a date change. 

02. CONTACT VENDORS

Reach out to all your vendors and let them know the date options your venue provided. Ideally everyone should be available for at least one of those dates. Don’t contract a new date until you talk to all your vendors. Remember each vendor is a small business so each will have their own rescheduling policies. 

03. DATE CHANGE

  • Send an “unsave the date” to your guests.

  • Follow-up with a new save the date at least 12 weeks before your new date.

  • Send out the official invitation 8 weeks before your date. Yay!

  • Send these digitally (free and eco-friendly) or via mail.

RESCHEDULING POLICIES

  • I recommend choosing a date I still have available.

  • Associate photographers will be a last resort if the date you are choosing is unavaialble by myself personally.

  • There’s no rescheduling fee for your first reschedule. You will need to sign a rescheduling addendum and accept the changes to your contract with new date.

  • Your retainer payment and any payments made are applied to your new wedding date.

  • Your payment due dates will adjust to your rescheduled wedding date.

  • You can put a soft hold on a 2021 date if you are unsure about rescheduling at this time. If someone else chooses that soft hold date you will be notified and will then have 72 hours to decide if you want to move forward with officially rescheduling or the date will be released to the other couple.

outdoor session policies

applicable for engagement sessions

  • You will need to sign a waiver prior to your session. The waiver outlines the sick policy, rescheduling policy and what I am doing to keep you safe!

  • I will be wearing a mask your entire session, you are not required to wear one outdoors.

  • I kindly ask that you keep your distance from me. In different circumstances hugs and handshakes would be welcomed but right now the rule is 6ft apart.

  • Most outdoor locations require a permit application and/or fee or permission from the property owner, you are responsible for ensuring we can shoot at the outdoor location you choose.
