Covid-19 Information

First, I hope you're remaining healthy and as happy as possible as well all deal with the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic this year. I have been looking forward to the 2020 weddings season immensely, but I also know the future looks unclear at this point for many of my clients and myself included. I put together this page of information about coronavirus for you so you'll know immediately what my availability is to reschedule your wedding, availability for portrait photography, and precautions I am taking as a business owner. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you just need to chat because you're feeling overwhelmed at the prospect of planning this amazing event for so long only to have to postpone it until a later date. Even though many of you may be considering postponing your weddings, I'm still just as excited for your celebrations to happen in the future! 

Hello!

2020 Wedding Season Information

Postponement  or Cancellations

Sickness

Help! My original wedding photographer doesn't have dates available to reschedule me! 

Helpful Information for Wedding Clients

In the event that your wedding may be cancelled or postponed due to COVID-19  please note that all retainers are non-refundable. As much as I wish this wasn't the case, my family and I rely on this income and refunds will not be given as per the contract. 

However, your retainer  can be used towards a new date instead. In the event of rescheduling your wedding or postponing, no additional date change fees will be applied. Your current package booking will be locked in and there will be no additional rate changes.  If you postpone and I am not available for the date I will send an associate photographer. However, if neither option works no refunds will be given. I am including my availability below for rescheduling. I only book 15 weddings per year, so my availability is very flexible. 

In the unlikely event that I am sick and unable to attend a wedding I will send a capable associate photographer that I frequently work with. More information on this can be found in your current contract. 

I have always had emergency plans set in place for illness or injury and these plans will not change. I've been grateful to work with an amazing network of female photographers in Colorado who work together to help ensure ALL of our amazing clients get served in case of emergencies. 

Many wedding clients who booked major photography studios to document their wedding are struggling to find dates available for reschedule. If this is the case for you and you're in search of a new photographer please email me and inquire. For clients who were unable to reschedule a date with their previous photographer and lost their retainer in the process I am happy to offer you a discount on wedding photography services based on the retainer you provided your previously booked photographer. As a boutique photographer who only accepts 15 weddings per year I do have a lot of availability to offer. 

Here are a couple of great articles on what wedding clients are doing right now about COVID-19.

Portrait sessions including engagements, family photos, senior photos, and more are also a concern for many clients. If you've currently booked a session after July your dates are still reserved. Any portrait sessions prior to July should contact me for rescheduling.

If you're looking to have these photos done, please know that I am not booking any new clients until after July and possibly longer depending on how the outbreak proceeds in the future.

1. Should I postpone my wedding until later? It's still somewhat far away.

Here are some frequently asked questions about COVID-19:

We can't predict the future, but for now I would advise waiting as long as you are comfortable before postponing or rescheduling the date. 

2. How can I get a refund if I cancel?

Unfortunately as a small business owner I am unable to give refunds for wedding dates that cannot be rescheduled to a later date. 

3. Can we  elope now instead and put our retainer toward that?

Elopements sound like a fantastic idea if you're eager to get married sometime in 2020, but want to wait and postpone the celebrations with family until 2021. If you'd like to do an elopement and use some of your retainer toward that and the rest toward a celebration later I am happy to change your contract accordingly. However, out of an abundance of caution I will not be scheduling any elopements until group restrictions are lifted and recommendations for social distancing lessen a great deal. 

4. My previous wedding photographer was unable to reschedule my date or provide me a refund. How
can I get a discount booking through you? 

Please inquire with available options. Include a copy of your previous contract for photography as well as an invoice of how much you paid and a confirmation of the photographer being unable to reschedule or refund you. From there I'll let you know what discounted options you have.
