Yorkshire Based Funeral Videography
Having a videographer at a funeral is becoming increasingly popular. There are many reasons why families choose to have a funeral videographer capture a memorial service. It may be that some family members are unable to attend due to ill health, friends and family live overseas or you simply want a record all the shared memories and tributes of the day, as part of a celebration of your loved ones life. A funeral is both a time for grieving and also for celebrating life. It’s a time for sharing stories and reflecting. A funeral video can capture the essence of the day, a feeling. Being able to look back on this special day can be both comforting and joyous.
Basic coverage starts with just two hours filming at one location, which is perfect if you just want the memorial service covering. However, I am more than happy to start earlier and stay longer if you wish so please let me know if you need a little extra time. Filming includes the arrival of the funeral cortege, the full memorial service (with original/live audio) and the laying of flowers by friends and family where appropriate. In addition to this, I can also film at the graveside if required. A selection of images of your loved one can also be inserted into the video if required.
Sensitivity and discretion when filming a funeral are important and the last thing I ever want is to disturb anybody. I arrive ahead of time to set up, move slowly and quietly and my equipment is completely silent. I use long lenses so I can film from a distance and don’t film faces of mourners (unless you ask me to) and I dress well in order to blend in. Filming a funeral should never cause any sort of nuisance.
Funeral video service filming at one location is £395 with the finished film presented in High definition on a USB stick. Your edited funeral film will be available to view or download via a secure online server 48 hours after the event. I am based near Haworth, on the outskirts of Keighley in West Yorkshire but happy to travel.
