WHY CHOOSE CJJOYCE PHOTOGRAPHY? There are many christening photographers in our market, and we wholeheartedly encourage you to do some research before choosing your photographer. With vastly different levels of experience, styles, talent and price, you should choose a photographer whose style matches what you are looking for and a team you feel comfortable working with... as for why you should choose CJJoyce Photography, here are a few things to consider:
- Clare, our photographer has worked with hundreds of clients over the past twelve years; she has worked with with clients of every age, shape and size, and knows how to pose, use angles and light, and how to make clients feel comfortable in front of the camera.
- We are totally flexible and can adapt our work flow and style to suit you, your guests and your venue to ensure we capture every detail of your perfect day; and with the vast majority of our work taking us all over the UK and Europe we can bring that CJJoyce Photography magic straight to YOU!
HOW MUCH MONEY SHOULD I PLAN ON SPENDING? Our christening collection is £350 (plus travel depending on location) this may seem like a large proportion of your christening budget however it is an investment in your baby's day! and you will be creating memories and beautiful images to cherish for years to come!
CAN WE PURCHASE ALL OF THE IMAGES? The short answer: No. There can be hundreds of pictures taken during the day, it is expected that some will end up on the cutting room floor for various reasons. Some will simply be test shots, to check lighting and camera settings... others will be shots leading up to the perfect moment when you are in the perfect position to capture the perfect shot... and many others will simply not be ideal shots for whatever reason. This happens with every christening no matter who the photographer is or who the subject is and only the very best images will be selected for editing, and this is where you must put your trust in your photographer.
CAN WE MAKE PAYMENTS? Yes! Just let us know if you’d like to make payments for your wedding photography when you contact us to schedule your day; after paying your deposit to secure your booking, we will email you an invoice with a suggested payment structure with three payment options.
WHY DO YOU TAKE THE FAMILY PORTRAITS BEFORE THE CHRISTENING? Our main aim is to provide you with the best possible portraits of your baby and their immediate family for you to treasure for years to come. Over the years, we have often found that by the time the ceremony and the post ceremony photos have been taken, there is a very small window of opportunity to capture images of your baby before they loose interest or just generally get tired and crabby... with this in mind with all of the important photos out of the way while they are fresh, clean and happy, we are free to work on bonus images without causing any undue stress to you or your baby.
