The images and music were breathtaking! Thank you for giving our family something we can hold on to forever. The Arlington National Cemetery Photographer immortalized my father's honor for our family to cherish forever. They created a video that we shared with friends and Family on Facebook that was simply awesome. They also included family photography we provided to tell the story of my wonderful father's life. They created an amazing remembrance that will live on in our family history forever. They were truly kind and sensitive people to work with as well. THANK YOU!

I cannot put into words how I feel about The Arlington National Cemetery Photographer and working with both Sandy and Mel. They are professional and outstanding in their field. They captured my father’s interment w/ beauty and grace and then put together a video that is magnificent.
They both educated us about the process and were respectful while working to the point I did not realize they were there. I loved my father dearly and I thank them for giving me, my mother, and siblings such a wonderful remembrance of the day he was laid to rest.
