On the snaps, the members of the royal family looked happy and delighted as the hero of the day was dozing away in his mother’s arms.

The royal photographer

The mastermind behind the gorgeous photos is Matt Holyoak. He is not a stranger to capturing the royals as last year Holyoak took photos of the Queen and Prince Philip for their 70th wedding anniversary.

The clever trick

According to HELLO!, Matt used a clever trick to make sure Prince Louis’ christening photographs looked as perfect as possible. The photographer applied an ingenious color editing technique to make everything match.

When we look closely on the two portraits of the royal family in the Morning room of Clarence House, we can see that surrounding décor has a beautiful bronze shade, which fits very well into the color scheme of the outfits, worn by royals, and the room itself.


In reality, those furnishing details actually have a different color - gilt bronze, which is a golden yellow shade. What a great way to make photographs look unique!

What do people think about the photographs?

Speaking about his experience, Holyoak said:

I was truly honored at being asked to take the official photographs at the christening of Prince Louis, and to witness at first hand such a happy event. Everyone was so relaxed and in such good spirits, it was an absolute pleasure. I only hope I have captured some of that joy in my photographs.

He certainly did a wonderful job, don’t you agree?
