A Christening is a milestone event, an occasion when close friends and family come together to officially welcome your child into the world.View my portfolio
As a new parent, there is no doubt that you will take hundreds of photos of your baby, however, if you are always snapping, you may have very few images of you and your baby. At important events, such as Christenings and Baptisms, it is important to have great group shots of parents and children together. You want to be part of those memories!
The other issue with taking your own Christening or Baptism photos is that churches are notoriously dark. The lighting through stained glass windows can also be unusual. As a professional photographer, I have the kit and knowledge to harness the light and use it to great effect. This results in clear and beautiful images that everyone can enjoy.
With an adaptable approach, I will work discretely throughout the event to record the personalities, shared moments, fun and laughter, alongside the important events. As a full time photographer, I am dedicated to my work and have invested in top quality equipment to compliment my experience and creativity. My technical expertise, friendly manner and passion for photography show in every photo I take. With my services, you can simply relax and join the day.
Back in the studio, I personally review and process the photographs as necessary to make sure that everyone is looking their best. This fabulous collection of photographs will be given to you on a USB stick. In addition, all of your high resolution photographs will be uploaded onto a personalised, password protected, web gallery on our website. From either source, you can download, share and print your favourite pictures.
If you are planning to hire a professional photographer for a christening or baptism, it is important to first check with the priest to see if photography is allowed. In most cases, photography is permitted, but there may be certain restrictions on which parts of the ceremony can be photographed and where the photographer can stand. It is also important to inquire about the use of flash during the ceremony. Having a conversation between the priest and photographer beforehand can help ensure that everything goes smoothly on the day of the event. Additionally, it may be helpful to check if there are any other christening parties scheduled at the same time to avoid any potential conflicts or overlaps.
Hiring a professional photographer for a Christening or Baptism allows the parents, godparents and guests to focus on the meaning and celebration of the event. It takes away the responsibility for recording the key moments and ensures everyone is in the photo, rather than behind the lens. It offers you quality images that spark memories and can be shared with your children as they grow up.

When it comes to capturing a christening, I always rely on my trusty Nikon 85mm 1.4 lens - the perfect choice for shooting in dimly lit churches. It lets in plenty of light, creating a beautiful creamy bokeh effect in the background. Babies are naturally drawn to light and so I always make sure to include pictures with their christening candle in the collection. Lastly, since many vicars prefer re-enacting baptisms after church services, this gives me a great opportunity to set up the perfect flash lighting for the font.
