As a former Staff Newspaper Photographer, I often had to cover various sensitive subjects and situations with utmost professionalism whilst ensuring that moments are captured discreetly.
I offer a discreet, personal photography service with over 15 years experience in the photography industry. I have photographed children's/young people's funerals & cremations for personal (and press use when desired.)
I appreciate that we often are on "auto pilot" during these times and I believe that by having some photographs from the day are part of the healing process.
My style of photographs from the day are very positive, I love to capture the celebration of someones life especially when family and long lost friends and acquaintances meet for the day. The details are also very important and often overlooked amongst the blur of the service. I will always love capturing moments, telling a photographic story of the day.
What I Do
I cover the arrival at the church/crematorium as it happens, followed by a few photos inside during the service (discreetly, no flash or long lenses).
All of my photos are of moments as they happen naturally. I do not use any flash and my camera has the ability to be totally silent in operation too.
I am happy to take Group Photos if required but would NOT pose anyone for these kind of photos unless specifically requested to do so ahead of the day.
I always take simple, discreet photos of upbeat moments and details eg flowers, keepsakes, cortege etc. as part of the day.
I would kindly request whenever possible, that I am mentioned on the Order of Service so that guests know who I am ahead of the service.
What Happens After?
All photographs are supplied on a DVD or USB in colour and black & white as standard in high resolution. I can also email the photographs over for you to choose what you would like to do with them.
I am happy to create photobooks/prints/keepsakes also for an additional charge.
Guests/Hearse Arrival Only £100.00 - Half Day Cover (3-4hrs) - £195.00 - Full Day Cover (up to 8 hrs) £500.00
All quotes are for within 40 miles of South Northampton (NN4), but I am happy to travel further for an additional cost of 45ppm.
