Colorado Funeral Photography
I had never been asked about doing funeral photography before. Honestly, I had never even heard of the idea before I got the call. It only took me a few moments, once I thought about it to realize, in a way, it’s very similar to wedding photography. They are both key milestones and really, at the heart of it–they are both celebrations of life. There are very different emotions around both events, but we are honoring our loved ones in very deep and special ways. And as I’ve shed tears of joy while photographing my couples’ weddings, I found it even harder not to get pulled into the raw emotions I was there to document. And these kind people, whom I had only met as the events were unfolding, and one woman whose life we were celebrating and bidding a farewell to, whom I had never met, I couldn’t help but feel tied to. For a short moment that day, I became unified with everyone there–one family of people. Tears were shed and hugs were given and one more offering I’m pleased to share are these photos. In loving memory.
