At Arlington National Cemetery, with the very best videographer’s, photographer’s and equipment, we are honored to produce the very highest quality videos and photographs by using the best team of cameramen and photographers for families attending services.

John F. Kennedy once said “a nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces, but also by the men it honors, the men it remembers.”
My company is about capturing memories at Arlington through photos and videos. This is all we do — period. That’s why we’re the best. But it is more central than it first may seem apparent. For all we can ever do for our heroes is to remember them and remember what they did — and memories of these military services are transmitted to future generations through your memories and pictures and videos.
So a year from now, or 50 years from now, you and your descendants can hear the playing of Taps or see the fluttering of the flag in tribute to your loved ones service and the memory and the importance of that day will again be in the forefront of your minds and hearts.
Arlington National Cemetery, which provides a final resting place for the heroes who have defended our country since the Civil War, is a historic 624-acre burial ground on the Potomac River. The headstones stand in silent formation honoring the service and sacrifice of America’s brave soldiers and their families.
Starting with the Revolutionary War, veterans from every American war have been interred within Arlington’s grounds.
Since the Civil War, more than 400,000 of our nation’s fallen soldiers and veterans have been laid to rest at Arlington. An unbroken chain of men and women who have served this country with honor and distinction. Because of their incredible efforts, we can stand here today and say with confidence, their service has been selfless, their accomplishments have been extraordinary and they are true patriots.
This hallowed ground was dedicated on June 28, 1864 at the height of one of America’s most costly wars. Private William Christman of Company G, 67th Pennsylvania Infantry was the first veteran to be buried. The men in Gray were retiring from Antietam, where thousands of their comrades had fallen between dawn and dusk in one terrible day. And the men in Blue were moving towards Fredericksburg, where thousands would soon lie by a stone wall in heroic and sometimes miserable death.
President Coolidge said long ago, “The nation which forgets its defenders will itself be forgotten.”
For more than 60 years, 24 hours a day, a lone sentinel has kept a silent vigil aside the Tomb of the Unknowns. Even as Hurricane Irene shut down the rest of Washington, a sentinel still walked his tour in humble reverence. Recently, a tomb guard was asked what is it like here at night, alone, in the quiet of this place. And he said he felt a kinship to the men resting here; that this was where he wanted to be, here to honor his comrades and all they represent. “Sometimes,” this young PFC said, “The rain streaks in your eyes or your fingers go numb from cold, but then I think about what they suffered through. And after that my duty doesn’t seem hard at all.”
