I don’t share many events I photograph, not sure why.. but I thought this was a good one to start with 🙂
This slideshow features highlights from Kona’s Greek baptism, which took place at my favorite Greek Orthodox church – St. Andrew’s. Once you look through the slideshow I think you’ll agree that it goes without explanation how ornate and beautiful these ceremonies are. Best of all it is such a refreshing change of pace to be welcomed, as a photographer, with such incredibly kind and enthusiastic church personnel when it comes to documenting all of the traditions that go along with a greek baby blessing. Oh, and I think Kona is the first baby I’ve ever seen or known of to not cry while being dunked in the water.. way to go big guy!
Anyway, enjoy some of my favorites below from my time with Kona and his family at his baptism, and most importantly of all, a BIG thank you to his family for allowing me the privilege of documenting such a big day for him!
Side note regarding the details of Kona’s baby blessing reception, it was at Joe’s Seafood downtown on Grand Avenue and put together by Katie McFarlan of The Savvy Event (she is SUPER awesome at what she does, and so so sweet to work with!!).
And because the slideshow is not viewable on smart devices, here’s a few of my favorite pics just in case you’re stuck on a train somewhere with just your iPhone and dying to see a preview.. 😉
