Wedding Photography In Melbourne During The Covid-19 Pandemic
Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, couples all around the country are cancelling their wedding plans. Instead of large-scale weddings, smaller weddings are becoming more popular.
The first priority of a wedding is safety, but on the other hand, it is still essential to preserve the themed decorations and the wedding clothes (even with face masks on). Of course, having a photographer capture the meaningful moments of the day is still essential.
Phenomena Photography can help you have a perfect wedding from the following points.
1. Be A Leader in Safety
Wedding photographers of Phenomena Photography would make sure that everyone who attends weddings is safe.
This means keeping a six-foot distance (which could mean using a longer focal length lens), constantly wearing a mask, gloves, washing hands frequently, and using a hand sanitiser.
Even though the wedding environment has changed with people wearing masks and social distancing, it is up to the photographers to present the accurate tale of the day.
Our photographers will almost certainly try to position their images without including people wearing masks. That should be alright, but portraying the true story of a wedding day is what works best. Therefore, the photographers will always keep other people’s safety in mind and not let it affect the portrayal of the wedding story.
2. Communication Is Important
It’s better to be vocal about your health and safety preferences and what you’re comfortable with ahead of time, so there are no surprises or misunderstandings when the big day arrives. Our wedding photographers would put communication as one of the top priorities during the wedding.
Phenomena Photography will make sure that we are on the same page regarding social distancing, face masks, and any other preventative measures to take. If you only want to photograph a small or private wedding with a few guests, we will double-check the guest count with you to ensure fully prepared for the entire wedding day.
Phenomena Photography will check what kinds of wedding photos you’ll be able to take and what you won’t be able to take based on your comfort level. For example, candid images of the dance floor may not be achievable with social distancing, while shooting photos of the couple, the wedding party, and family portraits can still be made to look normal. Finally, our photographers will check the photography setlist to make sure the shooting goes smoothly.
3. Sanitizing Equipment Is Important
Equipment cleanliness has never been more fashionable. Every wedding photographer should make sanitization a top priority.
Every time Phenomena Photography shoots a wedding, we use an ultraviolet system to disinfect the equipment. All lenses, camera bodies, flashes, housings, and other equipment are exposed to ultraviolet light for one hour.
4. Charges and Refunds
There is no doubt that the global pandemic has severely disrupted our lives and affected our plans. Many couples have been re-planning their entire wedding in the wake of lockdown restrictions.
If your wedding has been forced to be rescheduled due to government restrictions, we will in our best abilities adjust to your new wedding schedule. Phenomena Photography will not charge any extra fees for changing dates. If Covid has required you to completely cancel your wedding, then all payments made will instantly be transferred as a store credit at our company for future use on our other products.
5. Final Words
During this pandemic, Phenomena Photography took customer needs and communication as the most important consideration.
As we know, although weddings are constantly evolving, one thing that will never change is the importance of capturing the most important day in a couple’s life. Therefore, we will be ready to adapt to changes as much as possible and try our best to provide you with the perfect wedding shooting experience.
