AN OPEN LETTER TO OUR BRIDES | CONCERNING CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
Dear Bride and Groom,
As you know, the rapid spread and escalated emergency due to COVID-19 has become a serious concern for many. With the world fighting a heartbreaking problem that has changed lives forever, my heart, thoughts, and prayers go out to those affected by this.
As your wedding photographers, We are so grateful to be entrusted with capturing your gorgeous day and prioritize your health and well-being, and of course, being there to celebrate alongside you and your loved ones.
We wanted to reach out to you personally to let you know that we won’t be going anywhere and want to be your ally through this. We are taking precautionary steps to ensure that we will be healthy on your wedding day and wanted to encourage you with some items moving forward as your wedding approaches.
Look into wedding insurance. Are there any policies or clauses for instances considered acts of God, or epidemics/pandemics?
Create a website to share updates about your wedding. Wedding planning sites like Zola and The Knot are free and would be a great resource for this, if you don't have a wedding website already.
Confide in your vendors and move forward planning your wedding with confidence. We would encourage you to continue to plan to have your wedding, and lean on your team of vendors during this time. We’re here to help you have the most beautiful day. However, if you are considering postponing your wedding, be sure to reach out to all vendors and have an open dialogue about this IMMEDIATELY. Our availabilities throughout the wedding seasons are limited and we have policies in place to protect you. We want to do everything in our power to work with you through this time.
We are happy to work with you on finding the new perfect date! Weekdays are a great option in this new world as well as Sundays to ensure you can keep your venue as well as all of your vendors. All of our retainers are transferable with no additional cost but we do ask that you look at the changes you may need to make as soon as possible.
We're so privileged to be able to do this for a living and to have the opportunity to celebrate YOU. As we walk through unknown territory in the coming months, please know that we're here to help, always.
