Arlington Photographer

Please accept our heartfelt condolences on your recent loss.

What we Do

My name is Clifford Crittenden and I’m the owner of Arlington Media. Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your loved one. During this difficult time, we are here to help with the media coverage of your loved one’s Arlington service.

Our sole purpose is the capturing and preservation of memories at Arlington National Cemetery, through photos and videos. This is all we do — period. That’s why we’re the best.

I personally understand how important your service is, as I have family and friends buried at Arlington.

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 our pictures and videos.

Using long-range lenses allow us to capture private moments without interfering in the solemnity of the service’s military rites. Through captivating professional video and photography, we can bring the service to loved ones who couldn’t be there, and provide a moving memorial you and your family will cherish for years to come.

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, or a flyoverin tribute to your loved one’s service and the memory and the importance of that day will again be in the forefront of your minds and hearts. We have worked with tens of thousands of families. I personally understand how important your service is, as I have family and friends buried at Arlington.

Our job on every service, every day, is to be able to handle whatever happens, no matter how unexpected or unanticipated while still being professional and unobtrusive. We know where to be and when, and more importantly, where not to be.

My team and I look forward to working with you,

Clifford Crittenden
Owner, Arlington Media, Inc.

What families say

Flowers and Arrangements

We are often asked if our videographers or photographers can bring flowers with them for families to place on the grave at the end of the service.  The short answer: you would not want us to.

The long answer: Arlington Media covers on average three to four services a day.  Adding a stop at the grocery store to pick up flowers brings an additional level of unneeded complexity.  Our attention needs to be solely on covering your service.  Imagine having your airline pilot involved with the catering of your flight.

Arlington Media are Arlington National Cemetery service coverage experts,
Arlington Cemetery Florist are floral experts.

There are many florist near Arlington Cemetery. The one we see the most often is: Arlington Cemetery Florist (They are immediately next to the cemetery, and can have your boxed roses, wreaths or sprays waiting for you at the graveside.) (703) 527-7110
