Wedding Postponement Due To COVID-19
Weddings postponed due to COVID-19 may transfer their services and payments already made to a new date within one year of their original wedding date.
You can see a calendar of my available dates here.
I empathize with couples whose weddings have been affected by COVID-19. Their wedding plans, dreams, and personal lives have been significantly affected by an event unprecedented in our lifetime. The pandemic has also been financially and personally devastating for wedding vendors, creatives, and the hospitality industry, who are trying to figure out ways to keep their businesses open and continue serving wedding couples into next year.
There are two policies that I am instating that will help me keep serving you through 2021:
Saturdays from May – October 2021 require a rebooking fee of $1,500. This fee represents only a portion of the financial impact that I absorb when moving 2020 dates to prime Saturdays in 2021. Unfortunately if I move all 2020 Saturdays to 2021 Saturdays, it eliminates almost almost a year of income and jeopardizes my ability to remain open.
Clients moving their 2020 wedding to a prime Saturday in 2021 may use their previous deposit towards other photography services & goods. The previous deposit can be applied towards services rendered through April 2021, such as coverage for an elopement, engagement photography, additional hours of coverage, or portraits. They may also apply their 2020 deposit towards an album or print credit in for their 2021 wedding.
There is no rebooking fee for dates in 2020, or for Fridays or Sundays, through the end of 2021.
I ask that couples who are postponing keep to the original schedule for their second payment. This cash flow that was originally forecast for 2020 will help keep my business open into next year.
If you’d like to get on the phone and talk more about moving your wedding date, let me know. I hope we can make this date transfer as easy as possible for you and your families.
