Christening Photography Highlights
We were quite excited when Aspa phoned us to book the photography of her daughter Christina’s Greek orthodox christening.
Every time we have the opportunity to photograph a Greek christening, we begin with the family photos and prized portraits of baby and family. These have to be done before the ceremony gets underway. Post ceremony usually means the baby is tired and cranky with oily hair and wanting to rest which gives us little time for the quantity of shots that we’d like to have. We especially love capturing emotional christening photos of baby with mother as well as godparents. Guest’s faces tend to bring out the best expressions at the moment the baby is bathed in the blessed water when the photographer always have his finger ready on the trigger. Other subjects for great pictures are the close ups of decorations, baby portraits using the light from the candles, the incense burning and all the filigree details in the church.
Greek orthodox christenings are beautiful ceremonies with no shortage of captivating objects to be photographed. This makes such an event a challenge for a photographer attempting to capture outstanding pictures that will be cherished for generations to come.
See bellow a collection of Greek orthodox christening photography from this beautiful baptism of Mano and Aspa’s daughter who was christened with the name Christina last summer. We feel honoured to have been hired as their photographers and videographers for this modest orthodox christening and we thoroughly enjoyed this!
A big thank you to our photographers Thodor and Teo for their great work once again. We also want to thank George for his beautiful videography with the exceptional video clip trailer. We always feel happy having this talented cameraman in our team, he has a gift for filming the special moments and its a blessing to have someone who shares our passion for creative orthodox christening photography and videography.
