I have had a little flurry of christenings recently (check them out here!) and it was lovely to be a Christening Photographer Shropshire for Baby Max on Sunday. His baptism was held at Ash Christ Church, which I have never photographed at before. Its in the idyllic countryside village of Ash, just outside of Whitchurch. The church is beautiful inside, lovely and bright due to the interior colours and also those stunning big stain glass windows. Photographers dream!

I have worked with the Reverend before for Maggie and Mark’s wedding a couple of years and he was very funny then. Always great to work with lovely people! He played his guitar for the hymns which was ace! I do not think I have seen that done before by a Reverend, the congregation certainly put some effort in on the singing and it felt so joyous on a Sunday morning.

What I loved about this vicar is that he gets everyone involved. The children where brought up to the front to sing “He has got the whole world in his hands!” – a song that most of use certainly know!

As a Christening Photographer Shropshire, it is important to get the obvious moment, so when Max was actually christening at the font, at the back of the church, but I think its also important to document what was happening during the service. There were plenty of little characters to help me do that!

At the end of the service before everyone moved on to the party, I captured various formal photos of the family and godparents. I think these are important to document who was there and family all together. Having a photographer at the christening certainly helps and ensure these photos are taken. I know as a mum and photographer myself, its hard for these moments to be captured. We always try and book a shoot once a year so we can all be in photos together!

If you are interested in having a Christening Photographer Shropshire to capture your special occasion, please feel free to drop me a message, I would be delighted too!
