As measures to contain the coronavirus (COVID-19) have reached our area, we want to reach out to our couples and community at large to address some of the challenges we might expect in the near future. 

We would like to be as accommodating and sensitive as possible to this evolving crisis.  We hope that we can alleviate some of your concerns with potential rescheduling issues, as well as outlining the steps that we are taking to ensure the safety of our couples and team during this time. 

While all of this information may seem overwhelming, we wanted to give you all the details you may need should this health issue develop further in the United States. Should you have any additional questions or concerns, please reach out to us directly.  

Moving Forward as Scheduled

In the event that there is not a local quarantine or that venues do not cancel, we are committed to moving forward with all weddings as originally planned. Of course, we are paying close attention to the news and staying in contact with all of our couples and event partners. 

Date Postponements

If federal or state directives arise that would prohibit any of our weddings from taking place altogether, we are committed to working with our couples to reschedule to new mutually-agreeable dates.

If we are not available for your postponed date, we will try to assign a talented associate photographer on our team as a replacement. If there are no availabilities on our team, we will make every attempt to find you a suitable replacement with another photographer in Philadelphia of an equal level of skill and experience. 

Upcoming Engagement/Family Sessions

In light of the current situation, we are postponing all scheduled engagement or family shoots within the next two weeks. After that, we will evaluate our non-wedding related shoots such as engagement and family sessions on a case by case basis. As long as everyone is practicing safe hygiene, the clients and the photographer are not feeling sick, and the session is happening in an open-air environment, you can proceed as planned. We are truly looking forward to capturing images of you and your loved ones, and want to do so when the timing allows for us all to be in close proximity safely.  

Staffing

First and foremost, any team members that show signs of sickness or specifically of Coronavirus will not attend your wedding. We will make every effort to fulfill our contracted services and have enough staff to produce your wedding.

Safety Precautions

Safety of our team and our couples is our number one concern. We will be taking every precaution in regards to protecting ourselves and others by following the CDC guidelines. We will also be taking every precaution to clean any and all equipment that we may be bringing onsite for your wedding and of course wash our hands and avoid excessive contact. 

We hope everyone stays healthy and we are here to help navigate this along with you.
