Our Funeral Photography Services: We are sorry for your loss. It’s obviously a rough time for you at this moment.
We have photographed several funerals and memorials but we choose not to post them on our website.
Photographing a funeral is not an easy task for just any photographer with a camera. Unless they have experience and the sensitivity you may get a paparazzi type photographer. They will be in your face trying to capture angles like at a wedding. This will not be amusing to you at all. You may find this behavior insensitive and disturbing.
Funeral Photography and Burial Services
Of course we’re not going to post private images of your most intimate time. When we do funeral photography we stay out of the way and capture from a distance. If you’re wanting us to go to the memorial service, wake, funeral, funeral homes, cemetery or all places, we can accommodate you. Let us know what you need.
This is also a time when all family members are together and start thinking about getting together for family portraits while everyone is together.
Call us if you’re in need of a sensitive funeral photographer who will capture your day. Your images will be delivered to you via a web file sharing service online for safe keeping. In addition, we can also put together a slideshow of images to view on your DVD player. This is a keepsake so someday you can look back and remember good times when your loved one was still with us.
Contact us if you would like our professional photography services for funeral photography. We travel all over San Antonio, Texas and smaller communities around the South Tx area. We work very well in this type of photography. We know not to get in the way, photograph people crying in their most intimate moments. We walk around slowly and discreetly and take images from the back of the church or cemetery. It’s all about you and your family on this day. We do our best to stay out of the way. If you have special requests like getting images of the flowers, casket or any other request just let us know what it is you need us to do for you.
Burial Locations in San Antonio Texas
Many people have their memorial services at many different locations around San Antonio. The majority of the funeral locations we have been to are Fort Sam at their cemetery. Their 21 gun salute is a real experience. It’s actually quite an emotional experience as a photographer to witness that moment. We are in no way immuned or desensitized to this part of a burial service. My wife and I have been through it ourselves with the passing of our parents, grandparents, Aunts and Uncles. It does not get any easier emotionally for us no matter how many funeral services we attend.
Sunset North Funeral Home, Porter Loring Mortuary North and Mission Park Funeral Chapels North and Sunset Memorial Park are the funeral homes we have frequented the most. We can can also attend these various homes but it is a very tight squeeze for the photographer. In our opinion it is best to have us a the cemetery. This way we can photograph from a distance. We are never in your face. A long lens is used and we avoid using flash if possible.
St. Marks Catholic Church Memorial Service Photography
The Catholic church is where we have been quite often. There is plenty of light in both the church and the private viewing area. We do not have to use flash. The church interior has very bright lights. The priest there is very easy going. Of course if you’re a professional photographer and you let him know that we respect his rules on where we should be. He will feel more comfortable knowing that me, as the photographer, won’t be a nuisance or the center of attraction. We have learned to blend into the background. Most people tell us they never knew we were there and don’t know how we got so many photos. That’s what we do best!
