Preserving Memories: A Guide to Choosing the Right Funeral Videographer

Planning a funeral can be an overwhelming and emotional experience. It's a time when we say our final goodbyes and celebrate the life of our loved one. In recent years, capturing these moments through funeral videography has become increasingly popular, allowing family and friends to keep these memories alive. Families may consider the following points when choosing the right videographer and package to capture these cherished moments.

Consider the videographer's experience

Look for a videographer who specialises in funeral videography. They will have the necessary sensitivity and experience in capturing the emotional moments with empathy and discretion. Research the videographer's past work and client testimonials or reviews to ensure their work aligns with your expectations.

Evaluate the package inclusions

Funeral videography packages vary in terms of their offerings. Some basic packages may only include a single-camera setup with minimal to no editing, while others provide additional services such as multiple camera angles and detailed editing. Consider the significance of these features for you and your family as you decide on the right package. 

Understand the video duration

Funeral videography packages may include filming the service only, while others may provide a comprehensive documentation of the entire day. It is important to consider what is important to your family. Are you wanting a simple recording to share with those that cannot attend, or do you want a beautiful keepsake recording to view for years to come.

Check for additional services

Some videographers offer additional services such as photography, creating photo slideshows, or live streaming the funeral for remote attendees. If these services are important to you, make sure to inquire about their availability.

Discuss the delivery

Inquire about the timeline for the completion of the video and clarify the delivery format of the video. Will it be provided digitally, on a USB drive, or a DVD? Ensure that the format aligns with your preferences and the technology you have available for long-term preservation.

Compare quotes from different videographers

Request quotes from multiple videographers to compare their prices, services, and overall value. Remember that the cheapest option might not always be the best, as experience and quality should also be taken into account. Finding the right balance between cost and expertise is crucial in making your final decision.


Funeral videography is a powerful way to honour and memorialise loved ones, capturing moments that can be cherished for generations. By considering the various aspects mentioned, families can make informed decisions when selecting the most suitable funeral videography package to preserve memories that celebrate life and provide solace during moments of grief.

I have just viewed, and so beautifully filmed. This is so special to have, not only for us but for a great many family members unable to attend, from Europe and Ireland. I was impressed by your complete professionalism and caring nature.
