Studio Orange Photography takes your health and concerns regarding COVID-19 very seriously.

This page will give you some information about Studio Orange policies as they relate to this virus. I'm also offering some wedding photography special pricing, so please read through for more information.

 

 

Should we be prepared to postpone our wedding?

As of July 1, 2020, the state of Nebraska is in "Phase III" of reopening, which means that other than some health precautions and guidelines, weddings can now proceed nearly as planned.

But please be aware that the situation concerning this virus will likely remain uncertain for the next 6 months or more, and guidelines may change.

The best course of action right now is to prepare some backup plans for your big day. This might include considering other dates, or modifying your day to accommodate whatever health guidelines are in place.

Stay in communication with your vendors to see how they are dealing with the situation and what options they might have for you if social gatherings are restricted again.

If you haven't already, I would recommend looking into an insurance policy for your wedding. This is simply a good practice anyway, as it can help protect your financial investment through a whole host of potential problems.

When planning to go ahead with your wedding, there are a few extra things you can do to help keep you and your guests as safe and healthy as possible:

  1. Stay in contact with your guests and family members. If you've already sent out and received RSVPs, maybe consider sending out a second round to those who are coming in order to confirm their plans.

    When writing your invitations and RSVPs, encourage guests to stay home if they aren't feeling well or feel there is too much risk to their health. Let them know that as much as you would like for them to be there, their health is more important.

  2. Look into options for guests to experience the day even if they cannot attend. For example, the Creekside and Pioneer barns in Roca, NE is offering live streaming of the wedding day.

  3. Some traditions, such as receiving lines, are not recommended at this time. Also, while dancing is now permitted, it might be a good idea to create some other options, such as yard games (if space is available) as well.

  4. If your venue has outdoor options, consider having as much of your day outside as possible (weather permitting, of course), where guests can spread out more.

If you're still working on planning your day and want more ideas for how to still have the wedding of your dreams in these upcoming uncertain months, contact Shelly at Event Design. She can help you plan a perfect and safe day!

 

What precautions is Studio Orange taking?

For the most part, Studio Orange intends to photograph weddings as normal. However, there are some precautions I am taking to make sure that myself, any photographers working for Studio Orange, and clients and guests and remain safe.

PHOTO BOOTHS: For the packages that include a photo booth, Studio Orange will still be offering them. However, for the time being, Studio Orange will not be able to provide props for the booths. It simply won't be possible to properly sterilize or disinfect the props between use or events. However, clients are more than welcome to provide their own props for the booth.

DANCE FLOORS: Studio Orange still intends to photograph the dancing for events that are allowed to have them. However, extra precaution will be necessary to social distance.

MASKS: Myself or any other photographers working for Studio Orange may elect to wear a mask for personal safety.
