Christening photography

Christening photography and video services

Christenings are beautiful ceremonies with no shortage of captivating objects to be photographed. This makes such an event a wonderful challenge for us, attempting to capture outstanding pictures that will be cherished for generations to come. A well-captured christening photography will be something memorable that the child and its parents will be proud of in the future. We especially love taking photography which includes emotional photos of baby with mother, as well as with Godparents. Guests’ faces tend to bring out the best expressions at the moment the baby is blessed with water when we always have our finger ready on the trigger. Close-ups of decorations, and baby portraits using the light from the candles are always subjects for great pictures as well as the incense burning and all the details in the church.

A baby’s christening or baptism is one of the most significant early moments in their life. Baptism filming gives you a documentary record of every precious moment of this momentous day to cherish forever. In christenings not only are you celebrating their place in your family, the religious sacrament commemorates their acceptance into the church.

We were very happy to capture Leonidas’ baptism at St Nectarios church in Battersea London, where Father Christodoulos officiated. Leonidas was an angel throughout the service, happily being held by his Godparents as they committed to their role in his life while his parents watched proudly. Even being undressed and immersed in the font did not upset him – I suspect this little lion loves bath time!

The interior St Nectarios’ church was wonderfully lit by the sunshine which streamed through the windows and showcased the rich colours and gold accents of the paintings which adorn the walls. It was an intimate, loving gathering of family and friends who witnessed Leonidas’ special day, each of whom was given a traditional witness pin, or martyrika, to commemorate their participation.

The quality of light inside a church can make baptism filming difficult with a normal camera, but having a professional cameraman with the right experience in christenings and good equipment makes all the difference. Whether your christening is an intimate affair or a large gathering of family and friends, I will capture the essence of joy and love that surrounds you and your child. See more…

Elsie’s christening was a pleasure to capture at the Greek orthodox cathedral of the Divine Wisdom, known as Saint Sophia church in Bayswater, which I believe is also one of the most impressive churches in London and a world-class orthodox cathedral.

Elsie was a gorgeous little girl and we loved capturing the special moments of her day, with her lovely family. As always the cathedral of St Sophia in Bayswater was full of spectacular detail and made a fantastic back drop inside and out for all shots. We particularly liked zoning in on Elsie’s expressions throughout the orthodox baptism ceremony, so sweet and unaware of what was about to happen. We also loved capturing the expressions of her parents interacting with her, the tiny details like her bracelet being held and little feet.

The sun shone, and puffy white clouds drifted lazily across a blue sky when Vasilis was received into the orthodox faith at St George Greek church in Kingston, London. Unassuming from the outside yet wonderfully decorated with gilded iconography and a stunning azure blue ceiling within, it is not a place with which we were very familiar before capturing this orthodox Greek christening, but we were very pleased to have been introduced to it as it has a lovely atmosphere.

We really loved capturing these moments of Aristolis Wo’s baptism. There was an ambience of blue throughout the entire portraiture, which not only represent a ‘boy’ but also such wonderful qualities, like strength and stability.
Everything was beautifully and tastefully done, including the keepsakes and little clothing for Aristotelis Wo, all tied with blue ribbon, carrying an almost nautical theme. Lovely settings like the deep blue leather sofa, made for wonderful photos with all of the children together.
He was a very good boy to photograph and this personality can be shown through the imagery.
