We utilize your existing family photos plus any video clips you might have. Then we add music, narration, captions and special effects to create an exquisite 15 - 20 minute video that tells your Family Story.
Your Family Story is unique. And special. It should be cherished. Your photo albums are not doing it justice. You need an expert service that can tell your Family Story in an easy-to-share, custom video.
Your Heirloom Video will tell your Family Story with beauty, motion, and emotion. Your family will enjoy it for generations to come. You will shed tears of joy — each and every time you watch it.
There is a 10 - Step Production Process. That sounds scary, but we do most of the work. Your one big task: gather your favorite photos.
When family members join forces to tell their story, it's a good time for all involved. And the ultimate payoff is sharing your Heirloom Video.
Our fee plus a bit of your time are well worth it to produce a heart-warming Heirloom Video that your family will adore — forever.

Ray is the founder of Heirloom Videos. As of now, he does all the editing and related production work himself. Ray communicates regularly with his clients during every aspect of creating their custom Heirloom Video. His mission is to produce a video that his clients will cherish for generations.
Coronado is where all Heirloom Videos are produced. It is a beautiful coastal town across the bay from San Diego. If a client happens to reside in the San Diego area, Ray has camera equipment he can utilize to film or take photos, if needed. Otherwise, ZOOM comes in very handy!
Heirloom Videos clients are people with a family story to tell -- and they can be located anywhere. Hopefully, they have collected some nice family photos, and perhaps even a few video clips as well. Clients appreciate having this professional service to artistically tell their story.
