Greek Baptism Photography: Orthodox Cathedral
“We love the photographs! Louise has captured beautifully all the precious moments and took lovely shots of our friends and family without interrupting the flow of the event. She was professional and responsive and a pleasure to work with. I would definitely recommend her.” Maria
What to Expect in a Greek Baptism
As a photographer, it’s so important to know – and to be able to anticipate – the special parts that are coming up in an orthodox Greek baptism.
I love capturing all the elements that go into the service: the blessing of the bible, the holy oils, cutting a lock of the baby’s hair, changing the baby into their special outfit. Knowing what’s coming means that I can photograph it all discreetly, as I can be in the right place at the right time.
The St Sophia Greek Cathedral in Bayswater, London
The Hagia Sophia / Santa Sophia church is stunning, with intricate decorations, an incredible ceiling and a huge number of interesting perspectives to photograph from. The light is very low and dramatic in Hagia Sophia, so my Canon 5D mkiv cameras really comes into their own. This camera works brilliantly in even the lowest lighting conditions.
