Christenings & More

   For me, one of the joys of photography is being able to capture special moments.. Consequently, there is nothing I like more than being your friendly fly-on-the-wall christening photographer or birthday party photographer during your important events in Hertfordshire.

I have photographed christenings in Welwyn Garden City, Hitchin and Stevenage, among other locations, in beautiful churches, halls and hotels.

People have told me that having me as their christening photographer is just like having another friend at the party, albeit with a great camera and an eye for a good picture (I promise they don’t mean that I help myself to cake and wine).

​Upon booking I will liaise with you by email, phone or even over a cup of tea about what you would like from the photo shoot. For example, whether you would like posed photographs or candid shots, or, as most people prefer, a mixture of the two.

If you are planning a christening or party in Hertfordshire, get in touch! You can scroll down for prices and kind words from previous clients. To see more examples of my work, click here or visit my Facebook page here.

The pictures are fab! You’ve been receiving huge compliments from the preview that you sent.


You’ve booked your christening photographer… what next?

On the day, I will arrive at the time set by you and liaise with ceremony officials if necessary. I offer three different packages, which can be at more than one location in Hertfordshire (including travel time between the two). I will endeavour to capture the ‘little’ things as well as the big moments so that you have a precious record of all the things the make up your event.

Around 3 weeks after the event, you will receive your fully edited, high resolution photographs in a personalised, password-protected online gallery, from where you can download them.

With the longer christening photography package, you will also receive a voucher towards printed products, so that you can decide whether you would prefer a beautiful album, box of prints, or wall art.

Your Questions

What range of photos can we expect?

I will set the scene with images of the location and capture guests arriving. I then discreetly photograph the ceremony before taking group shots with family and godparents. If you choose, I will also attend the festivities after the ceremony, and take lots of candid photographs to tell the story of your day.

How many photos can we expect to receive?

You can expect approximately 50-60 photos per hour booked. I provide you with beautifully edited images in colour and black and white – I strive for perfection, so do not send over hundreds of unedited files.

What if we have to move our Christening date due to illness or quarantine?

Do not worry – I am very reasonable! I will not keep your booking fee if you have to move your date for a good reason, and I will put your new date in my diary depending on my availibility. The fee is simply to prevent last minute cancellations.

Our officiant does not allow photography during the ceremony, what can we do?

Some officiants do not allow photography during the most sacred parts of a service – do check with them beforehand. When this is the case, they will often allow certain ‘scenes’ to be recreated at the end for photographic purposes.

How long will we have to wait for the photographs?

I always aim to send you a small preview that evening, or the next morning, as I know how excited you will be to see the photos! Your full gallery will be available to you within 3 weeks.

Can you help us to create an album?

I certainly can! You will have the option to create an album once you receive your online gallery, or you can let me know your favourites and allow me to create the album for you. I can also provide beautiful wooden print boxes with your child’s name engraved in the lid, as well as prints, canvases and framed wall art.
