Our Greek Christening Photographers specialized in covering Greek Baptisms since the inception of the company and has become known thru the North London Greek community with our passionate coverage of this most important day. Greek Christening Photography and videography is a true passion of the entire team of Peter Lane Photography. Peter Lane Photography brings a new edge to artistic, modern and photojourmalistic coverage to Greek Christening Photography and not only. We know all the traditional Greek Baptism customs and traditions involved in the Greek Orthodox Christening Ceremony.
Your baby’s Christening is a wonderful occasion and a set of contemporary images will give you a lasting memory. Our reportage style using available light means that we can shoot discreetly without causing distraction during the service, so that family and Godparents are not unduly aware of our presence.
We shoot many Greek Orthodox Christenings being based in Palmers Green North London and well known by the community. 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.
Usually 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 I always have my 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.
As artists and a storytellers we Invest in finding the best spots, light and pose for family and your child’s portraits. When you invest in Peter Lane Photography Christening / Baptism Photography, you invest in our vision and huge experience to tell your personal story in images.
