One of these past weekends we had our first christening event as photographers! As the photography nuts of the family, Dani’s cousin asked us to be the official photographers of his baby christening that took place in Vic, their current residence, a (usually chilly!) village that is 2 hours drive from Barcelona.
Being at the same time the official photographers of the event and guests was quite tricky but nonetheless fun and interesting. However, that was not the part that scared us the most, we couldn’t remember the last time we went to a christening (I think I was 12 in the last I attended, long time!) and therefore couldn’t remember the exact parts of the ceremony. A wedding is certainly something we know more about: entrance, vows, kiss, you name it! and therefore you feel more secure by foreseeing all the key moments and making sure you are in the best place for the picture. On the opposite, this time we got surprised during the whole ceremony; for instance one time I was trying to get some extra pictures of the guests, when suddenly I saw the priest moving forward the baby: photography moment alert! I ran like mad to be able to capture it, to my relief I got there just in time.
After the ceremony we had supper at Vic’s tennis club and we seized the chance to breakaway from the group to take some outfit pictures surrounded by the tennis courts; I also call these pictures “the life prove we were also there”, you know how being the photographer excludes you almost 100% from the event pictures ;)
Do you usually play tennis? I am too clumsy with sports, but I do like some ping-pong…ok, not the same! Although I am not that big of a player, I used to watch tennis matches with my mom (she is a fan!) and have a fascination with all the retro iconography related to tennis: old rackets as home decor (yes!) and women vintage tennis uniforms (so good looking in my book!)
Rackets & balls ready? Fingers crossed I might have a powerful serve today and score my first match point!
What looks like a skirt (move to the gif for the reveal!), my ole good black clutch and pink nails.
Dani was (yep, once again, the boy is in love) wearing his japanese high school jacket and a dotted gray shirt.
My skort! I thought this was a nice wink to the theme of the location ;) also although unfortunately I don’t have a close-up I need to mention the white embroidery on my black shirt.
Practicing my serve, I think the tennis players on my back were truly impressed, ha!
Love your outfit Damaris <3 It fits you perfectly, and your short-skirt is totally my cup of tea :)
I like to watch the tennis games as well, I quit playing tennis though. And for this summer, Türker's mom sewed me a tennis outfit, overalls with some red stripes :) I can't wait to take this picture of it and post on my blog!
Wow! A red stripes overall tennis outfit must look as amazing as it sounds! Can’t wait to see a picture of you wearing it, lucky girl to have a mother-in-law that is good at sewing :)
Omg! How I forgot to mention on Dani’s look :) He looks fabulous with this shirt and jacket! supercool, please go on stylish actions Dani :)
hahhaha, thanks! :)
That “skort” is toooo cute! You kids are adorable.
Oh! it has easily become my favorite piece in the summer wardrobe, so comfy as well! ♥
lol, you look more like a ballerina in that last picture :)
hahahahahahahaha, yes, my body moves told on my lack of tennis skills ;)
What a cute skort! I really thought it was a skirt :P
Love the schooljacket of Dani as well!!
I’m not religious so I haven’t experienced christening :c
but I’m happy to hear you two were the photographers
of this event c:
I like tennis gear? :P haha, yeah, I only played tennis
once and I coudn’t hit a single ball :c I guess that made
clear that me and tennis weren’t meant to be.
I know what you mean about not hitting a single ball, hahha, sounds familar ;)
I love your outfit Damaris! This skort is very very clever and very pretty too, I have to find one like this ;)
My skort is from Kling, I think my pink one is sold out but they have a black version and also a daisy one, in case you want to check. This one is very comfy!
i love both of your outfits! that skirt and the jacket on dani is perfect!! i would love to find a similar jacket for yangkyu :) and yay for the photography gig! so so amazing and awesome! and oh my tennis! i play tennis like how i would play badminton! the ball flies way too high over the net! :)
Hey thanks! we are excited to be able to do some photography gigs, is something we are looking forward to be able to do more this next year. About the jacket for Yangkyu, don’t forget to check Chicago in Tokyo, that’s the vintage store where we bought Dani’s jacket, or to check in other vintage stores, they have some nice ones. oh! and make sure the buttons look original, that’s a nice touch :)
woohoo, I’m sure you guys did a great job as official photographers! Love your cute skort! I also fail on the sports front though I did join the table tennis team in grade 11 and came second place!! So proud of that, even though it was the first year the school had a table tennis club so I didn’t have much competition and I actually remember laughing through much of the serious tournaments oops :P
Hahahahaa, good for you, second place! The laugh helped you building confidence to win! ;) Thank you so much for the love! We would like to do more photography gigs this next year, we’ll se how this turns out.
omg I love your skirt/skort! I love you whole outfit actually, beautiful xx
