Who We Are

The novelist and poet George Eliot wrote that, “Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.”  With today’s digital media, cloud computing and mobile devices, there is no reason why a loved one should ever be forgotten.

Memorial Masters supports you in preserving your loved one’s life stories, end-of-life memorials and obituaries with skilled videographers, seasoned interviewers and writers, voice over talent and digital production.

Our interviewing team helps reticent story tellers bring forth their life stories through memory-eliciting questions in an atmosphere of comfort and care. Their video story becomes a part of your family legacy.

The videography team unobtrusively captures Celebration of Life memorials, eulogies and family memories, allowing you to be present for the service and your loved ones. The resulting video becomes a treasured artifact of that moment in time and the love shared.

Our digital production team skillfully transforms the life story interview, the military funeral or the Celebration of Life memorial into a cohesive and beautiful “film” you’ll be proud to share with family and friends.

“Looking back, I’m so glad we engaged Steve and his team to video the funeral. When I was ready to watch it, I realized all the moments I’d missed that day. I treasure this keepsake with the pastor, our family, the memories shared, the people’s smiles and tears and the love expressed for our loved one.” – Jack & Shirley Smith
