As I mentioned a little while ago, we are limiting the number of weddings that we will cover during Summer of 2010. We found out recently that Summer, my wife and fellow photographer, is carrying our second child, and will be born some time in late June or early July. We had our first son, Silas, shortly after we started doing weddings as DSW Photography, and looking back, it made our lives even crazier to be taking care of a newborn and having to take pictures at weddings. So, for this second child, we are going to slow down on weddings, though we do plan on still offering other services. We thank you for your interest in our services, and hope that even though we might not be able to be your wedding photographers, that we might be able to serve you in some way in the future.
We have had a great and busy year of photographing weddings, and 2010 is gearing up to be a busy wedding season. Unfortunately, we have had to turn down some couples already, and I need to update our site to explain this a little bit better.
We are going to stop taking reservations more than 8 months out for the time being. DSW Photography, as you might have noticed, is a family business. Right now we are in the time of our life where we want to have children, and our plan was to have children close together. With the birth of our son 8 months ago, we are looking to have another child in 2010 or 2011. Because of this, we want to be sure that Summer, one of the two photographers, isn’t having to cover a wedding while she is 9 months pregnant. We did that last year, and it wasn’t too much fun.
So, for those of you getting married beyond May of next year, we will not be able to book your wedding at this time. If you continue to shop around for a photographer and are unable to find one in the next few months, please come back here and see if we are available. You can also drop us a note to let us know that you are interested, let us know the date of your wedding, and we can put you at the top of the list.
