This was a great opportunity to capture the pupils of Grange Park Primary School enjoying the celebrations of the Queens Diamond Jubilee in the School’s amazing grounds. The children where asked to wear the colours of the the Union Jack and provide an item of food or drink to contribute to the picnic.
It is always an honor to photograph someone’s wedding but to be asked to photograph an intimate service like a Christening is something else.
Two very special Client’s (Nick & Zoe) who got married in 2010 asked me to photograph their first child’s christening, Natalia, at the beautiful St Sophia’s Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Bayswater, London.
Just like a wedding it is imperative to know exactly what element of the service is about to take place as they last a matter of seconds. Once the sacrament is performed there is no chance to ask the Preist to ‘do it again for the camera’, so the experience is essential.
