A Funeral Photographer You Can Trust
Over the years, funeral photography services have increased in popularity here in Australia as people begin to realise the sentimental value of these memories. Many choose the avenue of photography to complement a videography service, while others opt for photography alone if they are uncomfortable with the service being recorded on film.
Funeral photos provide cherished memories that can be passed down to future generations. Typically, the funeral photographer will capture certain elements of a service, such as the spray of flowers and attending family and friends. The photos can be presented in a number of ways, whether you want to share them digitally, have them printed or even have them compiled into a slideshow that can be choreographed to form a fitting tribute.
At Funeral Video Australia, we have perfected the art of photographing funerals. Our experienced photographers are well versed when it comes to recording special moments at a memorial service – ensuring important memories are captured. They are always respectful, professional and discreet, ensuring family and friends are completely comfortable within their presence.

The history of photographing funerals
Funeral photography is no new concept. In fact, funerals throughout the ages have often been captured via the artist’s brush.
As technology progressed and cameras were invented, funeral photography became a relatively common part of memorial services. In fact, during the Victorian era photography was an integral part of funeral tradition; from around the 1840s it was considered an honour for the deceased to be photographed in their funeral finery.
In modern times, funeral service photography has taken on a new approach. While elaborate images of the deceased are no longer commonplace and considered somewhat dark, creating lasting memories of those present at the memorial service occurs regularly. In some cases, the deceased’s loved ones may wish to have the flowers and coffin photographed, although this certainly isn’t for everyone.
Today, people want to create lasting memories of not only their loved one, but also close family and friends who they might not have seen in a long time. Funerals are a time when extended family are able to get together despite distance, busy schedules and even a differing of opinions; it’s a time when family unites over a someone who they remember personally – yet also collectively. Friends and family appreciate having the opportunity to not only capture final memories of a loved one, but also record their time spent together whilst paying a heartfelt tribute to a person who touched their lives.
As technology advances, videography and live streaming has also become increasingly common alongside photography. If you are interested in one of these services, please visit our Videography Page or Live Streaming Page. Alternatively contact us for more information.
