Yesterday, I spent Canada Day this year at Raquel & Eugenio’s wedding, and their son Sebastian’s baptism! Definitely a full day! It was REALLY great, Raquel of course was beautiful! And for the most part, everything went along fairly smoothly! I met so many awesome people too!
There were a few “firsts” for me at this wedding/baptism (besides the fact that it was, you know, a wedding AND a baptism). It was the first time I photographed an almost-2-hour-long ceremony that was completely and 100% in Portugese – I didn’t understand a word they were saying. It was the first time I saw a groom pretend to stab his bride with the cake cutting knife (hilarious… you could definitely tell that Raquel & Eugenio have already been together for a really long time when they try to kill each other at the wedding. haha). It was also the first time I have photographed a wedding with not one, but TWO cakes! (One for the cake for the “wedding” and one cake for the “baptism”.)
And little baby Sebastian has to be the easiest baby to photograph!!! You just say his name and he looks at the camera with big smiles! The fact that he is ADORABLE doesn’t hurt either!
All in all, it was a really incredible day. I took so many beautiful images it was really hard to choose just a couple as a “sneak peek” for this blog post!
Raquel, Eugenio and Sebastian, congratulations to all of you on your big day yesterday!!! I was honoured to be a part of it 🙂
