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.

Thank you for wonderful service. The “live feed “ was so appreciated when I was unable to be there, and now I am grateful for the video. Great, professional service!

Perfect. As expected, I was a mess at the gravesite so Arlington Media took all the pictures. Those pictures were marvelous. Plenty to choose from, all were good. Sent the contact info for the pictures to my sister in Australia so she could see and download them too. Thank you, Clifford, for the excellent photographer you sent out and the great way you handled it.

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.

When planning our Father's internment at Arlington National Cemetery we wanted to make sure to document the ceremony for those family members that could not attend and posterity. We chose Arlington Media and could not be happier. Working with Clifford and Arlington Media was both easy and pain-free. From the scheduling, Day of and communications afterwards, Clifford was a true professional. We purchased both the Pictures and Video. My mother, siblings and I just watched the Video and Pictures yesterday after a little over 1 month since the ceremony and it was Incredible. Video captured the entire ceremony from views and angles we missed. There was so much of the day that we missed due to the circumstances. The Video and Pictures captured it all. From my Mother, Brother, Sister and I... Thank You Clifford and Arlington Media. You have given us something beautiful to remind us always of our beloved Father! 🙏

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.

I doubt anyone can capture the emotions and depth of feelings that Arlington National Cememtery and the military funeral services evoke, but Arlington Media-Photography and Video came as close as I think possible. The video and photos taken during my husband's service are very professional, and profound in both clarity and content. There was no evidence of a photographer present during the service. Cliff was great to work with-good communication, fast turn around, and very helpful. I am most grateful to ArlingtonMedia for the treasured keepsakes they created to honor my husband

Arlington Media did a wonderful job with documenting my father's funeral. The weather was rainy and cool, yet they were there without fail. The music and the videos were top-notch. It was important for our family to have this documentation as not all members could be present and, in the moment, sometimes one is not aware of all the details of the funeral. It was nice to review the video and note the "Old Guard" and note the band and 21-gun salute, along with the piper. It is a cherished memory.

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.

Arlington Media was exceptional every step of the way as we planned for our Dad's burial services. From the moment I spoke to Clifford, I knew Arlington Media was the perfect match for us. Clifford was very kind, compassionate and extremely helpful -- he graciously spent some time walking me through the day. We are very grateful to have footage and photography -- treasured remembrances of our Dad. Thank you Arlington Media for your seamless job. With much gratitude, all of the Fitzgeralds.

We're very pleased with our video of my parents' burial, and grateful for their high-quality work.

Arlington Media was extremely professional and respectful. It was a difficult decision to hire a company to record what was an intensely personal and somber occasion. However, we knew the very nature of the occasion would prevent us from seeing all there was to see, to be able to cherish every moment of a very worthy tribute to our Dad. It was important to hire a company that understood this, that would be extremely discreet, and would honor our Dad’s memory by creating a very moving record of our final farewell with all the respect the occasion warranted. Arlington Media succeeded in all of this beyond our expectations. We hardly knew they were there, yet the photographs and video captured the breadth of the event in a way that allows us each time we view them to offer our Dad the love and respect he earned over a lifetime of service as we relive such a fitting tribute. Our sincere thanks to Arlington Cemetery and, in particular, to Arlington Media for preserving such a grand occasion for us.

Arlington Media photographed my father's Arlington service this past April. Our family could not have been more pleased with the precious photographs they provided us with, and are so happy to have them to share with family and friends. Arlington is a special place to be buried. Having these pictures will allow the great grandchildren, who knew him, but won't remember much as they get older to be able to look back and be as proud of him as all of us are who knew him as an adult. I would highly recommend you consider hiring Arlington Media, as they knew where to be to get the best pictures. I treasure them every time I look at them. I can't thank you Photographer Clifford Crittenden enough for being there on the day we honored our dad!

I am very thankful to Arlington Media for the beautiful video made for my sister's military burial at Arlington National Cemetery on July 8, 2019. It was very professionally prepared and I have received numerous compliments from the individuals I have shared it with. The videographer, although always out of sight, was able to capture vantage points that I would have been unable to capture and was able to capture the sounds so much clearer than I could have done. For me personally, it was a blessing to be there, in the moment, and not trying to observe the service through the lens of a camera. For that I am so grateful.Once again, thank you from our entire 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 provided both video and photography services for the ceremony honoring my in-laws at Arlington National Cemetery. The quality of both the photos and the video was very, very good and we will cherish them for years to come. Arlington Media was respectful, responsive, timely and easy to do business with. I had a number of questions both before and after booking their services and they were very helpful. It has been so great being able to share images of the service with other relatives that were not able to make the service. Thank you for everything you do honoring our veterans.

My family and I were very pleased with the video. We heard the cannons and the rifles. We heard the chaplain's words. At the time of the service we were all very emotional and many details were not clear in memory. Having the video as a reminder of actual events was a blessing for this family, especially those unable to attend. Mr. Crittenden met us at the administration bldg and stayed with us the entire service. He was recommended by another who had seen his work.

I’m blessed to have found Arlington Media! From my first contact with them ( Cliff) they were professional, informative and caring. I live in San Diego so I was fearful at what I would get for my investment without understanding the actual ritual associated with a burial of my brother at Arlington. Cliff walked me through each step in a very detailed way allowing me to share with my family of 30 who were flying in to attend the service. It all happened just as he said and Cliff captured it all for us as a living and sacred memory. I could not be more thrilled I chose Arlington Media and recommend the highly. The quality of the moments captured is outstanding. In addition, they are very competitive in pricing and you will never regret the investment. Allan

I decided last minute that I would like to have my Father's funeral at Arlington National Cemetery video taped. I read through the reviews and found Arlington Media. The reviews were fantastic. I called and Cliff immediately responded to my inquiry. Cliff was amazing from start to finish. Cliff greeted me before the service to let me know he was there and would take care of everything. As the service started I noticed Cliff was already set up and ready. He video taped his service from multiple angles all the while respecting our space. He communicated with me at the conclusion that he would contact me to finalize everything and had much empathy and only to focus on my Father's service. The final product was beyond amazing and captured my Father's service beautifully. The video made me feel like I was back in the moment and my Family and I relived the beautiful service all over again. I give Arlington Media the highest recommendation and I would use them personally again and again. 5 Diamonds!!! Thank you Cliff I am eternally grateful! <3

I highly recommend Arlington Media and no other for you loved one's interment at Arlington National Cemetery. (They did ours: Oct 5th) I did the research after my father, MG Michael Healy passed, and trust me after thorough backgrounder, and talking with former Green Beret families who used Arlington Media and seeing their work on the internet...I know that I made the right decision. Every aspect of dealing with this professional, family-owned company was a positive experience. From day one, until the videos and books were delivered, Arlington Media was trustworthy, caring, and kind. They have great communication skills with you, and most importantly to me: the artistic factor. The exceptional photography and videography is stellar. They know the cemetery like no other. We had our services on Oct 5th and the videos and photo book picks within a month. So...from someone who really used them...It is a big thumbs-up! If you are thinking about booking them, I did...from the chapel to the grave, and I could not be happier with the job that Arlington Media did for us. BTW: As you no-doubt know by now, there is a long wait to get in to Arlington so book Arlington Media as soon as you have a date, lock them in...also, I recommend doves and a bagpiper after the military honors. And yes...if you are put-off by the long wait to bury you loved-one at Arlington...I know how frustrating it is, but listen...it is worth it when you see that he or she will be resting in such a beautiful place surrounded by fellow patriots. Wait, by all means, wait...you won't regret it!

Arlington Media did a wonderful job preparing video of my brother's funeral at Arlington. It was a very storm day and they were operating under extremely difficult and unpleasant conditions, but they still did a wonderful job. They repositioned the camera several times during the ceremony for optimal viewing angle. They were able to capture the most important elements of the funeral without being intrusive to the event. I would highly recommend Arlington Media.

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.

I cannot say enough about Arlington Media. We ordered the video plus pictures package for my Father's full military honors Interment at Arlington Cemetery. To say "impressive" is indeed an understatement. Mr. Crittenden called me the same day I left him a message- at 8:30pm, apologizing for taking so long to get back to me (I couldn't believe it- living in the south- we are not "same day" kind of folk). Anyhow, he was kind, courteous, and up front about costs. He did not take a dime, unlike a lot of businesses- until around three days after the actual Interment. That helped our credit card monthly statement quite a bit (with not having everything due that same month). Mr. Crittenden showed up about an hour before my Father's chapel ceremony and introduced himself. He gave me his card and urged me to keep in contact with him- especially if I had any questions. He came with a photographer, and they started to get set up right away. Honestly, I was so distraught and nervous, I didn't really have the mental energy to think much about pictures. My Dad's flowers were late- and I didn't even notice until someone pointed it out to me (that there were no flowers). So that's how "out of it" I was. What I did notice, throughout the ceremony- was Mr. Crittenden and his photographer, jogging around the premises, moving equipment, and constantly on the go- and I did make a quick note that I was impressed by all that hustle. The "wow" factor came when Mr. Crittenden emailed me the links for the photo gallery and the video. I couldn't believe my eyes. When you are participating in an Interment, you miss a lot of what is actually going on- ceremonially speaking. Every step, movement, gesture, command- has been practiced to the point of perfection. And you miss all of this while you're sitting in the Chapel. I compeletely missed them taking Dad out of the Hurst and carrying him into the Chapel. The steps and arm movements by Dad's Air Force comrades- wow. I cried during the entire video, as did my Mom (and my Mom never cries). Mr. Crittenden produced a moving, tearful video- it was truly amazing. Any sticker shock that you may experience regarding price is quickly forgotten once you receive the final product and realize the time and effort- and craft- that had to go into making a video that tells a story. Additionally, the photos are of beautiful quality and similarly tell a story. If you are on the fence about recording your loved one's funeral service- just ask yourself this- how many opportunities are you going to have to experience such a gift. And when will you have the chance to be with your loved one, who has passed away, again? Although I do look forward to joining my Father one day- in the meantime, I can watch this beautiful video to remind myself of the wonderful man he was (and is). I cannot be more pleased with Arlington Media, and I give them the highest of ratings. Mr. Crittenden is very accessible over email and phone- and he will answer you same day. No- he isn't a chatterbox. Some people said that he isn't personable, but that isn't true. He's a very kind man, who is quiet. He gets the job done. To me, that is what exemplifies customer service- not how much a person talks. And yes, there is a wait time of about three weeks. But again- would you want him rushing something so precious? He takes your video (and your experiences) seriously- and it shows in his final product. I can't recommend Arlington Media enough.

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.

I asked that the burial service of my husband be filmed because I couldn't be there and I wanted to feel as if I was there. I was kind of disappointed to see that more of the people who attended were not shown. I would have liked to know so I could thank them for attending his burial. The service was nice except for the constant noise from planes going over.. I know that it was not your fault but I did want to touch on that because it made it hard to hear what the Chaplain was saying.
