How does COVID change things?
When should I book you?
In the beginning of COVID, everything was unknown and we all kind of evaluated things as they came. Now with the data, science & vaccines, we can make well informed decisions and this includes getting married. Couples that choose to get married or elope during the Pandemic are choosing to do so amidst the risks that COVID has created. I take all necessary precautions with my couples and this includes being vaccinated for both your safety as well as my own.
I understand sometimes things happen that are beyond our control and we may need to reschedule or change plans. With this in mind, there may or may not be a rescheduling fee to move your date and/or change plans.
The process for rescheduling will depend on several factors:
- Is there local/federal restriction prohibiting you from eloping?
- If you're eloping abroad and borders close prohibiting you from entering.
- If you are voluntarily or involuntarily wanting to reschedule.
Of course rescheduling is no fun and the thought of having to pay more $ to change arrangements is irritating, which is why I evaluate the situation as it arises and cannot say you should or shouldn't expect a rescheduling fee.
I've had couples book me anywhere from 3 weeks to 16+ months before their date. However, I don't book more than 24 months in advance. The further you book in advance, the more time you'll have to plan. In my opinion, the sweet spot for booking is anywhere from 9-12 months out; allowing you to stay on track and progress through planning without large gaps.
What type of package do I need?
Can I still add coverage after I've already signed my contract & paid my retainer?
Absolutely! I will never have two elopements on the same day and am always willing to add more coverage to your day. The cost for adding additional coverage is priced hourly. There may be additional expenses with changing the coverage such as flight changes, accommodations and travel arrangements. To avoid additional fees, I recommend adding coverage as soon as possible so we have enough time to alter our plans accordingly.
I don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to elopements. The type of coverage you will need for you day is going to be entirely dependent on your wants & needs for your day and other factors such as desired locations, accessibility, privacy, etc. We'll have the chance to discuss timelines and what your vision for your day exists of and I'll be honest with what I think would best suit your needs.
Do you charge travel fees?
When will we receive our gallery?
After your elopement, you'll receive a handful of sneak peeks generally within 72 hours of your day. I take my time while I work through your photos in order to provide you with the best of the best from your day and on average spend 30-50 hours editing each elopement. The current turnaround time for galleries is 8-12 weeks during peak seasons (May-Oct) and 6-10 weeks during the off season.
My packages are constructed in a way that automatically include any and all possible travel I will do in order to document your day.
