Christening photographer in London

Your child’s Christening or Baptism is one of life’s seminal moments, a joyful occasion where all your closest friends and family come together to welcome your baby to the world.

As well as the big events, I also look to capture all the little details that will bring memories flooding back, and a mix of candid shots as well as some gently posed group shots if you’d like them.

“Louise documented my baby’s christening in a lovely and warm manner, capturing beautiful moments, details and reactions. These will be invaluable memories for us.” Adriana

My approach to christening photography

No-one can help but be moved by the grace and poignancy of the event. It inspires me every time.

Rest assured I’m always discreet. My silent shutter and sensitive approach means you’ll barely notice as I quietly photograph your child’s special day.

I’m focused on capturing every wonderful moment – from the beauty of the venue to the atmosphere throughout the service and reception, as well as meaningful details like the cake or flowers.

I’ll photograph the key moments of the service itself, as well as your guests’ reactions, scene setting photographs and group portraits – and I’ll document the fun of your reception.

Choosing your coverage

Most families choose to have both the service and the reception photographed, or you can choose to have just the time at the church documented.

To decide which might be best for you, consider what you’d like to remember from the day: is it primarily the event itself? Would you also like to capture memories of your loved ones celebrating with you at the reception?

I’ll photograph your guests arriving, the church exterior and interior, the service itself, any group shots you might like afterwards, candid photographs at the reception as well as photographing the cake and decorations.

NEW: a fixed viewpoint video of the service – a simple video to share with friends and family who can’t attend in person. No audio is recorded, the footage is set to royalty-free music.

“We absolutely love the christening photos. This is the second time we’ve booked Louise for photos, we love her relaxed and natural style. She slotted in discreetly, and took loads of great photos of our baby boy and our guests.”


“Louise documented my baby’s christening in a lovely and warm manner, capturing beautiful moments, details and reactions. These will be invaluable memories for us. Thank you so much for your beautiful work!” Adriana

“We are so happy with the photographs Louise took of our son’s christening. Louise was absolutely lovely, and easy to communicate with. On the day, she snapped some great photographs without us even noticing, which was amazing – and she was great at directing us for the more ‘formal’ pictures that we asked for. I would highly recommend her!” Zoe

“Louise was fantastic, responsive and truly professional from start to finish. She captured our son’s baptism beautifully, providing helpful advice and was very discreet throughout. We will not hesitate to use Louise again. Thank you Louise for our beautiful photos which we will treasure for a lifetime”. Marianne
