Video and photography for families attending an Arlington National Cemetery Service
I wanted to let you know we are monitoring the coronavirus situation closely. We are working to ensure we meet the needs of families who are having services at Arlington while protecting you, and our staff. For the foreseeable future, Arlington Media is taking the following actions to mitigate the coronavirus’ impact on covering Arlington National Cemetery Services for families:
- We are reducing the fee down to our cost for live web-streaming the service to families that decide not to attend due to the outbreak.
- We will no longer meet with families in the Administration Building, or the Memorial Chapel, or the Old Post Chapel.
- We will text you when we are in position, normally about 45 minutes before the service start time.
- We will increase social distancing when meeting with families after a service, so no hand shaking or exchanging physical items, like photos or business cards.
Moving forward, some families have postponed their services rescheduling our coverage for later in the year. Other families have opted to have web streaming so they can view the service live without having to travel to the Washington, D.C. area. Our longstanding flexible and non-punitive cancellation policies will continue while we all work together during this difficult time.
Our hearts go out to everyone impacted by this worldwide crisis. If you have additional questions, please call me at (202) 536-3000.
Please take care of yourselves and each other,

“Thank you for an outstanding video. Every aspect was covered and the shot selection was outstanding. I have watch the video 3 times already in showing it to family. I continue to see the positioning of lighting, the people and events in the background. You are a professional; not someone who just went out with a camera and pushed record.
Thanks again.”— J. Phillips

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.
“I received and viewed the DVD of my wife’s burial. I was extremely satisfied with the product, it was more than I hoped for. My family and I will treasure the DVD and intend to pass it out to our extended family that couldn’t attend the ceremony. If you need a supporter you can count on me. Thanks again for the outstanding work…”Bernard (Joe) Josephson
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.
We make the best Arlington Cemetery videos
