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.

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.
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.
May we be worthy of their great sacrifice.
