Since the passing of my cousin from COVID-19 in February of 2021, I feel it's important to dedicate a page to my response to the pandemic.*
Creating an environment that's safe and comfortable for my clients has always been important to me, even before the pandemic. Even though we've been through this pandemic since 2020, that 90-something percent survival rate means nothing to those who lost loved ones to COVID....
I kindly ask that everyone I book to please be transparent about COVID exposure if they find out they, or someone who attended their wedding/session, had COVID at the time of me being there. The very last thing I want to do is to unknowingly spread COVID (that is, if I'm an asymptomatic carrier) at my next gig/session. And in the event I do have COVID, I will have an associate photograph on my behalf until I am 100% well and test negative.
If you're feeling unwell, please reschedule.
This is something I've requested since the beginning of the pandemic, but I want to post it here, too. Doesn't matter if it's a cold, flu, or COVID - whatever sickness it is, if it can be spread and cause others to fall ill then please reschedule until you are 100% better (and have tested negative if it's COVID). Again, I would hate to get any couples and families, including my own, and wedding guests sick, especially if someone is immunocompromised. Currently, my policy for sessions (so family and couples' sessions) states that I will not charge a rescheduling fee the first time if it's due to COVID. After the first reschedule, then a rescheduling fee is invoiced per reschedule (please see your contract for rescheduling fee). So please reschedule if you're feeling unwell. If I am feeling unwell, I will message you and ask that we reschedule until I am feeling better and test negative (if it's COVID). If you cannot reschedule, then I will have an associate cover for me.
If your venue requires proof of vaccination for COVID and/or requires proof of a negative COVID test, please inform me and I can happily provide proof.
Let's continue to work together to prevent the spreading of not just COVID, but airborne sicknesses, as well.
To book your wedding or session, please fill out my contact form.
