Do You Take Photos In A Funeral?

In a Filipino funerals, yes. Today, my cousin and I went to her best friends funeral. She was our neighbour and she died too young with the age of 22. She used to come to our house mostly unexpectedly when she had problems and wanted a friend to talk to. She became my friend too though I only saw her when I am in my home country. The funeral ceremony was nice and very unusual for me as she was a Mormon and I am Roman catholic. The Mormon church was a pleasing worship place as well. I was never been in a Mormon church so I found it more than nice. What I have noticed was that the family of the deceased (with her casket) took photos outside the church as it was not allowed to take photos inside. In the Roman catholic church, the deceased family are allowed to take photos with the casket and with the relatives and friends inside the church. Is taking photos in a funeral normal in your country? When everybody look sad in the photos? It was a beautiful funeral ceremony remembering the deceased that I was in tears as well as the others. Now, she is no longer in pain. We will be missing her.
