Adam’s greek orthodox baptism – MPH Photography – Toronto

Wednesday, October 6th, 2010

When my good friend Mona’s sister in law called me to ask me to photograph her son’s baptism, I couldn’t have been more thrilled. Then when they called back to confirm booking me she left the sweetest message concluding with “we want you, we need you, we have to have you!”, that message made my day.

Although it was a rainy and dark day, it didn’t matter, as you could feel the love and the warmth surrounding this little boy. From the ceremony to the reception, all you could see was smiling faces and joyful expressions as we all celebrated this special day.

The ceremony was held at St. Demetrios greek orthodox church in Toronto and the reception was held at Ellas Banquet hall, and I’ve had the pleasure of going to this hall many times and each time I’m totally impressed with the food and the service, and add a great dj like “leave it to us” and it makes for one great night. There was lots of eating and dancing and celebrating going on,lol.

Andrea and Louis are two of the sweetest people and the love between them and their kids, Selina, Theo and Adam was so adorable, hugs and kisses all night, dancing and laughing together, it was such an emotional event,  and even Louis teared up when he was thanking everyone for coming, it was such a touching moment, and brought tears to my eyes and probably to everyone else’s there as well.

Andrea and Louis, it was a pleasure photographing such a special occasion in your lives and I thank you for trusting me to do the job, we had a wonderful evening and really felt like part of the family and we met many wonderful people there, thanks for hiring us to cover your wonderful event. We wish you and  your family all the best and I hope you like the sneak peek.

Love this last shot of the two proud and happy parents dancing together, sigh!

Valentine’s Day Baptism

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

I can honestly say that this is a first for me, as I have never spent a Valentine’s day photographing a baptism, and I have to say what a great way to celebrate the day of Love.  Not only did I get photograph this great event, but I met some wonderful people, began some new friendships and as a bonus I also got to eat a wonderful dinner followed by yummy dessert and I even got to dance a little as well, what else could a girl want on v-day, oh and I can’t forget that my sweet husband did give me a tiffany necklace and bracelet charm set which I absolutely love, so it was a perfect day in my books, ok, I could have done without the cold, but everything else was perfect.

This sweet little boy is 6 months old and he stole everyone’s heart at the baptism including mine. His lovely and cute and adorable parents were so proud and so happy and along with their adorable little girl, they have a perfect family.

The baptism was at St. John’s greek orthodox church followed by a reception at Spirale banquet hall where everyone enjoyed a wonderful meal and then a bit of greek dancing. It was a great night and I was honoured to be a part of it. I hope you enjoy your sneak peeks Georgia.
