FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

ABSOLUTELY! As long as there aren’t any national, state, or local restrictions on your wedding, the number of guests attending, or any regulations affecting my ability to perform my contracted obligations, I am 100% planning to be there! I’m staying on top of the national, state, county regulations as well as the official recommendations of the CDC and WHO and will be in touch with you if any restrictions may impact your wedding date.

I fully entrust and respect your decision; whether that be going through with, postponing, or holding a smaller wedding.

If you’re in a position where you’re being forced to reschedule / postpone your wedding due COVID-19, I will be more than happy to reschedule your date to any date I’m available. That said, if you’re considering rescheduling, please reach out to me immediately so we can make sure I have availability for your new date!

It doesn’t have to be a super formal e-mail.
I’m definitely the type that takes 45 minutes to write an email so I understand. LOL

Hey Justin~!
We are considering postponing our wedding to [date(s)].
We are still aren’t 100% positive yet, but wanted to weigh our options.
Are you currently available?
Thank you~!

Nope, I do not have rescheduling fees! This is a circumstance that is completely out of anyone’s control.

Yes, I have. Due to government restrictions, I had been forced to reschedule all my weddings booked in March-June 2020. Many other weddings in 2020 have postponed for dates in 2021 and 2022.

The wedding I photographed in 2020 had become elopement ceremonies or smaller intimate wedding ceremonies.

From a photography standpoint, absolutely nothing!
We can also go over logistics and how this will affect the timeline of your day.

Financially speaking, if you have made any changes to the hours I am needed, I’ll prorate any payments.

If I am unable to photograph your wedding, I will find another photographer for you. This comes at no additional cost. I will work with them beforehand to go over any details we may have covered in our communication and make sure they are fully equipped and prepared for your wedding.

If you prefer making the decision to find your own photographer, I will refund any payments that were made to me.

Yes! Great question!

The best place to start is to stay in communication with your all of your vendors. As you look at possible postponement dates, keep in mind that most Saturdays have been previously booked already. Rescheduling to a Friday or Sunday will provide the best chance for all your vendors to reschedule with you.
