Adelaide Christening Photographer ~ blue eyed boy
It was a wonderful family event for first time parents Laura and Elia and their lovely boy Nikolaus.
I always like to take some time to say hello and try to establish a connection with the little ones and take a few photos before we get down to the more serious stuff....i find it helps them to be more comfortable with me and my camera and the more comfortable they are with me then the better the photos.
A bit of a tickle and a giggle before getting dressed for the Christening Ceremony.
Once we had him all dressed it was off to the Church ceremony...
Little Niko did so well during his Greek Orthodox Christening ceremony....
In the end it was time for a well deserved nap...Mum and Dad have plenty of wonderful memories to cherish and to share with family and friends.
Adelaide Event Photographer ~ milestones and memories
Milestone birthdays are big events in your life and it is important to capture all the special moments from your celebration.
Chenel contacted us about capturing her 21 st birthday but wasn`t so sure about the service that we offered...
I explained that there is no limit on the number of images that we will present to you..
All images are watermark free...
She was thrilled that she would receive 2 sets of images..one set of hi-res images suitable for printing and one set of lo-res images suitable for sharing on social media and that her images would be delivered via Dropbox for her convenience..
We were also happy to include 2 12 x 8 prints of her choice form Atkins Pro Photo shop , these are great quality prints and would make a perfect gift for family and friends...
Chenel and her family and friends could relax and enjoy her birthday event knowing that Mezzino Photography were on board and ready to capture all the special moments from her party..great memories for her to look back on over the years...
Choosing your wedding photographer is a big decision, maybe one of the biggest you will make regarding your wedding day and it is important to get this one right.
Once the food and drinks are finished and your guests have all gone home...apart from each other the only thing that will be left are your photos and all those precious moments...
So how do you decide which photographer to use, hopefully i can help you a little...
Of course the first thing to do is to look at their past work,check out their website, facebook page and of course their instagram feed...if you like what you see, give them a call, find out if they are available on your date and if so arrange to meet up face to face.
I really enjoy meeting a newly engaged couple for the first time,i feed off of their excitement and get excited myself discussing their ideas and the type of photos they are looking for, working out a rough plan of how the wedding day will unfold and just getting to know each other a little- this is so important because if we are going to spend pretty much the whole day together it is best if you are comfortable and relaxed with me which will then be reflected in the photos...
Of course be sure to check out their reviews...these are usually a pretty good indication of what you can expect from them ....
And finally something i have learned over the years...you generally get what you pay for, in other words going for the cheapest option is not always the best ,these are your `forever moments `so be prepared to pay a little more for quality and experience and i promise the extra expense will long be forgotten when you are enjoying those wonderful memories in the years to come:)
What is it about photography that made you decide you’d like to do it as a business?
I was given a camera for my 10th birthday and from that moment on I was hooked and I carried that camera with me everywhere and was forever pestering everyone and anyone to let me photograph them.
Over the years as my photography developed I found that I was being asked to photograph friends and family events and then my first wedding and it got to the point that I thought perhaps we can make a living out of this and Mezzino Photography was born.
What’s the best part of capturing a special event?
The best part of capturing a special event is the fact that I am creating wonderful memories for people and recording moments in time that will never happen again, our clients will be able to look back over the years and remember that particular day with great fondness and those memories will come flooding back all over again.
What do you look forward to most when working with your clients?
We get to meet so many people from all different walks of life and it is always fun to get to know a little about our clients, everybody has different ideas about how they would like us to photograph their event and we are always learning something that perhaps we can incorporate into our next shoot.
Your wife Gina helps you out at times, some people say working with your partner is challenging, would you agree or has it bought you closer together?
We work together well on a shoot, it is always good to get a different perspective to what I am seeing and Gina brings ideas from a female point of view that I may not see.
Of course there are always challenges but overall it has bought us closer together.
What do you look forward to most as you grow this business?
I am always looking to improve how the business runs and to improve my skills as a photographer so I look forward to seeing how both of those aspects are going to change over the years.

Thailand ~ What a wonderful place to visit.... friendly people, fabulous food, plenty to see and lots of sun....shorts and t-shirt weather for two weeks in the middle of our winter; was just the tonic we needed to get us through.
If you haven`t been to Thailand before and you have the opportunity to go I would say do it and it would be a great honeymoon location. We stayed at the Sheraton Resort in Hua Hin and I cannot say enough good things about the people, the food, the culture and the warm weather.
I hope you enjoy these photos and be sure to visit us on Instagram @mezzino_photography to see many more :)
The Grand Palace was built in 1782 and for 150 years was the home of the Thai King, it`s fabulous architecture and the attention to detail has to be seen to be believed.
Damnoen Saduak`s floating market.....talk about organised chaos :)
People and boats everywhere and everything from spices to wooden frogs for sale, lots of fun to be had haggling with the locals.
The Khao Luang underground cave, a magical place of worship and a welcome relief from the extreme heat and humidity.
Khao Wang, locally known as the Palace on the hill, a Royal residence built over 160 years ago, unfortunately we were not allowed to photograph it inside but there were plenty of photo opportunities on the outside.
