Today was the first time I took photos in an official photographer capacity, to say it was nerve-wracking would have been an understatement. The occasion was a triple christening and a wedding blessing, luckily the rain held off long enough to take some pictures before and after the service.
I was also able to take some photos inside the church too which was the one thing I was really worried about doing, but the church was lovely and bright inside which helped enormously and I took my daughter along as my helper which was fantastic as she took her own camera and snapped away too.
Together we managed to take a lovely selection of photos.
I decided to stick with the camera in auto (no flash) as although I have been using the P setting I really didn't want to mess things up on the day. I now know why photographers have more than one camera during a wedding/christening as I would have loved to have changed lenses during the service but there just wasn't time so I kept my 18-55 lens on throughout. The vicar and the church wardens couldn't have been more helpful as I had a quick chat with them before the service to ask about where I could and couldn't go which really put my mind at rest.
I haven't added any photos of the family as I need to check with them first to see if they mind me putting their photos on my blog.
