A few weekends ago, I had my first opportunity to try some practical, real-event photography. Some friends of ours were having their son baptized and had asked me to photograph it. I’d taken some pictures of this family before, they were familiar with me and the camera, so I was keen to give it another go.

It was a big learning experience, in particular with being active in taking enough pictures to tell the story of the days’ events. The couple themselves were fantastic as always, the weather was perfect, and Vincent was looking sharp, so that really made photographing the day much easier.

Cecilia also sang at the ceremony – she received a ton of compliments for it (of course!). We should really start a business!
