Choosing Meaningful Photos and Videos

The first step in creating a memorial service video is to select meaningful photos and videos that capture the essence of your loved one’s life. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • Select approximately 20-40 photos spanning the life of your loved one, arranged in chronological order to tell their story.
  • Focus on photos featuring the deceased rather than large group shots.
  • Include special memorabilia, collections, or mementos that capture their interests and passions.
  • Ask friends and family to contribute their favorite photos and videos.


Personalizing the Content

To make the memorial service video truly personal, consider incorporating the following elements:

  • Brief video reflections from loved ones who can’t attend the funeral.
  • Meaningful quotes, poems, or prayers special to the deceased.
  • Highlight accomplishments, hobbies, or volunteer work that was important to them.
  • Add personal touches like handwritten notes, ticket stubs, or other sentimental items.


Setting the Tone with Music

Music is crucial in setting the tone for the memorial service video. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • Choose songs that were favorites of the deceased or that remind you of them.
  • Select music that sets the desired tone, whether somber, uplifting, or reflective.
  • Arrange the music to match the order of the photos for a powerful effect.


Keeping it Concise

To keep the memorial service video engaging and easy to follow, aim for a length of 3-5 minutes, the length of 1-2 songs. Avoid making it too long – generally, 20-40 photos work well.


Sharing the Video

Once the memorial service video is complete, there are several ways to share it with loved ones:

  • Play the video during the funeral service, wake, or at a celebration of life.
  • Make copies on digital drives to share with close friends and family.
  • Consider posting the video online via a memorial website or social media to allow more people to view it.


Creating a memorial service video is a meaningful way to honor the life of your loved one and provide comfort to those who are grieving. By following these tips and incorporating personal touches, you can create a memorable tribute that captures the essence of thier life.
