Are taking pictures appropriate at a funeral? (serious question) Wondering if i should bring my camera for the memories if no one else remembers?

  • no, i think its very stupid and rude, along with disrespectful. If you wanted memories you shouldve done it while the person was living. JMO...no hard feelings.

  • I went to a funeral where they took pictures and it was really unnerving! I wouldn't take a camera--you didn't say who had passed, but if it isn't immediate family---leave the camera at home and let them do what they think is best. If there is a party afterwards or something I think you could take pics there, but I would ask first! Sorry for your loss.

  • I think it's a little strange, but if you are an immediate family member to the deceased (the child or grandchild or sibling) and you want to take pictures, then it would be ok. But if you are not an immediate family member, then you need to leave the camera at home so you don't offend the family.

  • i'm not talking about taking pictures of my dead grandmother, but of pictures of the people who are there and who have come together for this event.
