Our Lady of Victories First Holy Communion
Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. My name is Peter Paredes and I am a professional photographer specialising in family and event photography having covered events such as this for 10 years now. I have been asked to be the official photographer at this year’s First Holy Communion and so the purpose of this page is to provide you with all the information about the photography service I can provide should the demand exist.
I have been informed that the finalised dates are Saturday 11th May at 11am and Saturday 18th May at 11am.
The most popular images my clients purchase are the family photos which are taken before and after the mass. Families who are interested in having these family photos must book a time slot in advance. These time slots are allocated on a first come, first served basis however there are only limited slots available.
I will capture as many images as I can during your allocated time slot but please be aware that these are only 3 minutes long. For this reason I need families who wish to photographed to be ready 5 minutes before their slot but remember that although I will try my best to keep to time this can sometimes be delayed for reasons outside my control. The location of exactly where the photos will be taken will be decided by myself on the day and will depend on external factors such as the weather, lighting and building work taking place on the day.
This year I am offering a number of print and digital packages. Should there be any slots available on the day, these will be charged at £30 for the booking slot but this will not include any products.
Small Package £40 - includes family booking slot and four 7x5 prints including P&P
Big Package £95 - includes family booking slot, three small prints and three large prints including P&P saving £48
Digital and Print Packages
Bronze Package £150 - includes family booking slot and three images (digital versions and one small print of each) including P&P saving £89
Silver Package £195 (most popular) - includes family booking slot, five images (digital versions, one small print and one large print of each) and a large group print including P&P saving over £175

Q. How do we view our images?
A. Those who have family photos will be sent an email with a link to follow to view the family images. In order to make sure my email is not caught by your spam filter please add Peter@ParedesPhotography.com to your email address book. The group image will be available to view on this page.
Q. What are the sizes and prices of the prints?
A. The prints will be available in the sizes of 7 inches by 5 inches for £13 and 10 inches by 7 inches for £23. However these prices will be discounted by 20% for any orders places within 2 weeks of the photo gallery going live to £10 and £18 respectively.
Q. How will the prints be delivered?
A. Prints will be delivered by Royal Mail and therefore postage costs will be added to the order. The amount of postage will depend upon the number of prints you order but usually this is between £5 and £10.
Q. Can I cancel my slot once booked and paid for if I change my mind?
A. You can cancel your slot however I’m afraid your package fee is not refundable.

Q. Is there anything else I need to know?
A. I will email out some guidance notes to those who book a family slot nearer the time.
Q. What if I only want a group photo?
A. If enough people book the family slots I will be taking the group photo at the end of the mass. These will be available for sale after the communion on this page.
