Dad was a proud man, who had quite an extended family around Australia, and when he passed away recently my brother and two sisters decided we wanted some pictures to send to the rest of the family. At first we were going to get one of his grandkids to do the pictures, but we thought that may be unfair because they were there to celebrate dad’s life as well and it would take that away from them. Then we looked at hiring a Photographer, but we wanted to make sure that they would handle it in a dignified manner, as dad was a very dignified man…..when we spoke to our Funeral Director, they suggested that we look for someone who specialised in funerals and suggested Craig from Funeral Photographer, as he had actually worked in the funeral industry and was very knowledgeable about this whole funeral process. From the moment we spoke to Craig he was helpful and understanding. His costs were, we believe, more than fair and he assured us that he would undertake dad’s funeral photography with care and discretion. On the day he turned up early, met with us and then of course with all that went on we don’t remember even seeing him for the rest of the service. Afterwards he found me, said his goodbyes and left. My brother and sisters all said that apart from the initial meeting on the day, they didn't really recall noticing him….but then we were all fairly focused on the service. About a week later Craig called to say that our pictures were in the mail and that a slide show was on his site for us to look at. I sent the link to the rest of my family and they were thrilled to see it. It’s now with all of our family and has provided us a different perspective on the day and made sure we have amazing permanent memories ….thanks again to Craig from Funeral Photographer for all his help!!

We had researched professional photographers in the local area for Mums funeral service at the Fawkner cemetery in Melbourne Victoria. The ones that did get back to me were looking at charging me around $1500 for the service, and then I remembered that mum had said she had been to the funeral of one of her dearest friends in Sydney last year and that there had been a photographer there that the family had recommended. She told us that this photographer specialised in funerals and was very knowledgeable about the entire process as he had been in the funeral industry himself. I contacted our friends and they recommended Craig from Funeral Photographer. I was concerned that the price would be outside our range as he had to come from Sydney to Melbourne to help out with mums service, but to my surprise the price Craig quoted was slightly less than the local photographers, and that included his travelling costs to and from as well as the photography, editing and sending us the images when they were ready. I decided then and there that Mum deserved nothing less than the best and someone that was very familiar with the whole process so I engaged Craig. I am so glad I did. On the day Craig turned up early, spoke with me and then went about his business and to be honest I don’t recall even seeing him in the way at any stage. After the service concluded at the graveside, Craig came by, said his goodbyes and about 10 days later we received a package in the mail that contained a disc with the images of mums service, as well as a movie made out of the images that had some music to it. I was extremely impressed with the photos, they were amazing and they have provided my family both here and overseas a fantastic memory of the day. I have no regrets with the decision to bring Craig in for the day and Ii thoroughly recommend his services to anyone who wants an amazing permanent memory of the day. Marie from Coburg Victoria

I recently lost my father to a long term illness and as part of the funeral service he had insisted that we get a photographer to record the service in still photography so that we could then send the images to our family both interstate in Australia as well as to his family over in the United States. After a bit of research on Google I found www.funeralphotographer.com.au and made the initial contact. I spoke to Craig and found that he had intimate knowledge of the funeral industry and that he was flexible and most of all caring when I spoke to him. Even though I am in Burleigh Heads in Queensland, and Craig was in Sydney, he provided us a very good price to record the service and minimal costs to travel here to do the service on the day. We had initially considered getting a local photographer, but after speaking to Craig at Funeral Photographer we made the decision to have him attend and we are glad that we did. Craig attended a little early, took pictures of the family and friends arriving as well as my fathers arrival in the hearse. He followed through to the graveside and then the wake afterwards. Because of his knowledge of the funeral industry we were barely even aware that he was there, but when we got the Disc in the mail a week later the images were fantastic and recorded all of the most personal and relevant moments of the service. I now have sent those images overseas as well as interstate and the response has been no less than fantastic. I would highly recommend Craig at www.funeralphotographer.com.au even if your interstate. Amazing value for money and worth engaging him just for his experience in the industry alone. I truly do not believe another photographer would have been able to capture the moods and emotions as well and discreetly. Thanks again Craig, we will treasure the memories! Elston from Burleigh

Recently I was placed in the situation of having to arrange my partners funeral. There were so many things to take into account including the fact that members of both my family, as well as my partners, were overseas and unable to attend his service, but wanted to share in the celebration of his life. I did a little looking on Google and found that of the 2 specialist Funeral Photography services available, Craig from Funeral Photographer appeared to have more "on the ground" experience with funerals, so I decided to go with his services and I am so glad I did. Craig was professional, courteous and very empathetic to our particular service, and most of all was unobtrusive. His knowledge of the funeral industry was evident from the very start as he knew the funeral directors very well and liaised with them as well as the clergy, and other than the initial introduction with us, remained out of the way of the main portion of the service at our church, the graveside service as well as the wake that followed afterwards.....yet he still managed to get amazing images of every one who attended, the important and moving parts of the service as well as the following party. About 10 days later I received a disc of images as well as a video file to music of the day and I have forwarded copies to family and friends world wide and the response has been simply amazing. I now have beautiful permanent memories of my partners service that I will truly treasure for many years to come. I cannot thank Craig from Funeral Photographer enough and I have no hesitation in recommending his services to any family that requires them
