Quietly documenting memories - funeral and memorial photography

Few people think of having funeral and memorial services photographed.  If done properly it can be a tremendous source of comfort to a family.  It might also be the only time for some families to take group portraits as members often live many miles apart and only see each other on such occasions.

Your love one was someone special and meant a lot to so many people.   Consider documenting the tribute with photography.  A beautiful album of images showing the unique gathering of friends and relatives in honor of him or her will become a family treasure. 

Each funeral or memorial service is unique and will speak with you about what you would like or not like included in the images.

Please contact us to let us know how we can serve you.

We are based in the Washington, DC area and are available worldwide.

Should you hire a funeral photographer?

Une Belle Vie Memorial Urns

Perhaps you're never even considered the possibility of having a photographer at your loved one's funeral, but it's something that some families choose to have when organizing a service for their loved one.  A funeral photographer makes sure to cover all aspects of the memorial service, including the wake, the flowers and the guests and they make sure to keep all photographs tasteful and respectful of the dead.

When deciding whether you want to hire a funeral photographer or not, consider the fact that, oftentimes, funerals are events where many members of the family are together for the first time in years. As sad as it is to admit, funerals bring many families back together and choosing to have a photographer at the funeral would be a way to document all of the great friends and family that came to pay their respects.

While funeral photographers may have other types of photography that they offer their clients, they are similar to wedding photographers in that they specialize in taking compassionate photos of the family and their friends in their time of grief without being disrespectful. It’s not a job that just anyone can do and it’s acceptable to ask to see a portfolio before you hire someone. You want to make certain that their style and aesthetics will match with your vision of a funeral for your loved one.

Funeral photography certain isn’t right for everyone and you should never feel pressured to have a photographer at your funeral. You should, however, know that there is no taboo that says you cannot have someone present at the funeral to document the services.
