Christening for many of us is an important moment in our lives, which we would like to capture in the smallest of details. Touching and emotional pictures would be a memorable addition to the family photo archive.
All of us look forward to important life events, such as the Christening, and make sure to prepare all of the important aspects of the day in advance.
However, it is easy to oversee small details, which are equally as important for the success of the day.
Once the venue, the photographer and the videographer are organised, the decorations are up and all plans are in order, it is tempting to think that everything is ready.
However there are other small important factors which cannot be missed.
In order to obtain the unforgettable photographs, which convey the importance of the moment of baptism, attention should be paid to the following small details:
o All of the relevant parties (parents, godparent and the child) should arrive to the church at least 30 min in advance of the service. This ensures that the photographer has enough time to capture the important details, such as: the child’s suit / dress, the cross and accessorise, the child’s portrait and photographs of the parents and relatives. We need a little time to create reportage shots to convey the atmosphere prior to baptism.
o The baptismal suit / dress and all of the accessories must be in the same style and have the same colour. It is also advisable for the parents and godparents to be dressed in one style (i.e. no more than 3 primary colours). This will create colour harmony and allow for stylish, organic photographs.
o Following service, please reserve a little time for individual and family portraits – we will create unique images which will last a lifetime!
I hope to work with your very soon!
