Photography Services Since 1924

We are proud to help memorialize the special honor of burial at Arlington National Cemetery, an American landmark deserving the highest respect that receives over four million visitors each year.We have been told our service helps family members that cannot attend the services at Arlington National Cemetery share the in the honorable memorial. And that the images create a touchstone of these memories through pictures or video - for today - and to share with future generations.

Our service is dedicated to the families, friends, and loved ones of American servicepeople. We are a family run business. When Mel Hopkins Sr. started his photography service in 1924, the technology employed by photographers was quite different. But his passion for creating images that can be cherished by the families lives on today with his grandson Mel Hopkins III, and the top Washington DC photographers we offer to you.
