The first step
A key family member, or the funeral home, contacts me to determine my availability.
The second step
I contact the family representative to find out what they would like photographed (family groups, the committal, the viewing). I then suggest a suitable funeral photography package. The family representative then completes the Order form.
The third step
On the day of the funeral, I meet the family representative briefly prior to the funeral service and confirm what is required to be photographed. I then photograph the funeral discretely and unobtrusively.If I am photographing in a church, I ask for the priest’s approval and confirm I won’t use flash photography or move around.
The final step
Within two business days of the funeral, in a private area on my website, selected photos (usually around 200 to 300) are published. This allows the family to share the funeral with family and friends and also those who were unable to attend the funeral in person (e.g. family overseas).
I then design the Funeral Book. Often the family provide tributes and eulogies for inclusion in the book.
When the Funeral Book design is finalised, payment is requested. The book(s) will generally be available within four weeks following payment.
