Customers reviews

Hiring a videographer or photographer can be a daunting task. Even more so for something as important as an Arlington Service. While we can tell you that we are the best at covering these services, the real testimonial should come from families that have already trusted us to cover their service.

You will never find anyone that can do a better job than Arlington Media. Their pictures capture every moment and the quality of the pictures are excellent. Cliff is a joy to work with, very professional, fast turnaround time and you are sent a text message to let you know they are in place and ready to shoot giving you peace of mind and they are not intrusive during the service. There are so many moments you would miss if it wasn’t for Cliff and his camera. Thank you Cliff for the beautiful memories of my Mother.

Cliff and Arlington Media are A+. Great customer service, easy process, fantastic results. At the beginning of the process I found their brochure easy to understand and right away I knew that I wanted a videotape of my mom's (spouse of vet) burial. We are not a very photogenic family so I knew that I did not want pictures. I booked them right away and that process was quick and easy. I met Cliff on the day of the burial and he was most kind and just took care of everything. He remained in the background and just made things work. Then the thumb drive arrived in the mail enclosed in a great personalized metal case. With trepidation I watched the video for the first time -- again we are not photogenic. Amazing quality. High professional quality. Everything was perfect and even we looked good. Lots of nice surprised such as the fly-in, shot of the section and grave #, and weather noted. Close-up of the rose on the casket corner, other shots panning the area, etc. I immediately sent it to all the relatives who were unable to attend. Every person wrote back thanking me and commenting on the quality of the video. They said that they felt like they were actually there. What a fantastic memory and way to honor my mother. Well done Arlington Media.

Arlington Media was wonderful in filming my Dad's ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery (ANC) - I ordered the picture and video service for a full Military ceremony, and the pictures and video are fantastic! We were concentrating on the burial ceremony and it was great to know that someone else was taking care of documenting the ceremony. They are very knowledgeable about ANC and you would never know they were there. It's worth it to enlist them - you see things from the ceremony that you didn't see at the time. A great remembrance.

I would like to take a moment to thank Cliff for the extremely impressive video he made of our dad's burial at Arlington National Cemetery. The video was nothing but first class: the 4K resolution, the camera placements, the sound, everything exceeded our expectations. Even the USB thumb drive that we ordered extra was impressive with the printing on the outside of the thumb drive as well as on the metal case it came in. We were very hesitant to order a video but we're so glad we did, it is a great way to honor our dad and we are sure that it will be passed down through the generations. The whole process was seamless and non-intrusive. We made the right choice hiring Arlington Media. Thank you Cliff.

Thank you, so much, for giving me a lasting memorial of my sister's service at Arlington. I never realized how much I missed until I viewed your video. Thank you that you make sharing of the pictures and video so easy. The quality of the photos and video is awesome. I, also, appreciate the prompt communication.

Arlington Media did a fantastic job with their video and photography of my father's burial with honors. The company is very professional and the quality of both the video and photos are first rate in both artistry and compassion. We now have a treasured legacy to be handed down to generations to come. They also produce the disks so they can be copied for family that could not attend. I highly recommend it. Don't hesitate.
We had an amazing experience with Arlington Media. Cliff and his team captured our dad's day beautifully. We are so glad we invested in our photos and video. We love looking at them and know we will treasure them for years to come. Thank you Arlington Media!

Arlington Media created an incredibly well done video of my dad's full honors service. Being able to see multiple vantage points after the fact was wonderful. And we received the video very quickly. I would highly recommend hiring Arlington Media. Thank you for documenting this event for our family.

I am so glad I chose to have both video and photos of my husband's Arlington service done by Arlington media. I was rather distracted that day, most of the day is a blur. I vaguely remember Cliff introducing himself when I arrived at Arlington National Cemetery (my apologies to Cliff for likely seeming as a "deer in the headlights"). Thank goodness Cliff and his staff took care of everything regarding the recording of the day without me having to be involved. The video and photos are beautiful and captured both the solemnity and celebration we felt that day. I am so thankful to have this lasting tribute to my husband for myself, our children, family, and friends.

Arlington Media captured all the special moments from my father’s service in February 2019. I wanted to be completely present in the events of the service, and not trying to take pictures myself. Once I received the pictures and video, there was even more than I could have possibly captured in pictures myself. I highly recommend their service!

Arlington Media did a superb job filming and taping my husband's full honors burial on August 10, 2018. They were exceptional at capturing the event while never invading the space of the mourners. The final work product was absolutely lovely. When I asked, they also gave me needed information on a great florist and a pub/ restaurant that was equally great, for everyone to congregate after the burial. We are not from the DC area and so having this connection was invaluable. I would highly recommend Arlington Media to anyone who wants to record and preserve the experience in Arlington National Cemetery. I would do it the same way, again.

It is my pleasure to be writing a recommendation for Clifford Crittenden and as the owner of Arlington Media, who videoed the Full Honors funeral of my husband at Arlington National Cemetery in July, 2018.

Living in Alabama, it was difficult to find someone in Virginia to remember this sorrowful time in my life. After doing some research on the internet and based on the samples I viewed, I decided to call and then hire Clifford. He was pleasant, courteous, responsive to my emotional condition and explained his entire process of recording the ceremony. He promised that he would not be seen – and the only reason I knew he was there was because he introduced himself before the service and reassured me that all would be fine.

Based on the results, I can definitely say that Clifford is an exceptionally talented and unique videographer. He was professional during this sorrowful time in my life. and the resulting video will always be a peaceful remembrance for me.

Clifford and his team are an invaluable asset for those who want to memorialize a special moment in one’s life. It is my pleasure and without any hesitation, I give Arlington Media my highest recommendation.

Arlington Media photographed and filmed the joint funeral service for my husband's parents in March, 2017. My father-in-law, a Commander in the Navy during WWII, was buried with full military honors. If you have never experienced the majesty of this service and ceremony, it is breathtaking and can be quite overwhelming in the moment. It was one of the most moving and emotional and patriotic experiences I've ever had.

Hiring Arlington Media to capture the event and all of the beautiful details that went by so quickly was an essential decision. Cliff and his team are excellent, artistic and accurate photographers/videographers and the result was outstanding. We met Cliff in the parking lot of the chapel beforehand. We were not even aware of the filming in the chapel, and are so glad that Cliff captured a an important eulogy that highlighted my father-law's heroic efforts to relocate Holocaust survivors to Israel after the war. I noticed the photographer as we walked behind the caisson only briefly. Cliff and the team are extremely discreet.

Here is an example why having Arlington capture the day was so important: One of the moving elements of the day was a group of middle school kids, obviously on a school trip with parents and teachers, who witnessed the procession. We could see this group from far away as we walked down the hill to the grave. When we got close, it was so touching to see the kids, hands over hearts and baseball caps off, honoring my father-in-law. I'm sure they will never forget their visit to Arlington. But, my husband does not even remember seeing them! You really cannot absorb all of the details, and the beauty of the day.

Thank you, Cliff and Arlington Media. Our photos and film are treasures.
