Make Valentine’s Day Memorable

Sure you could get your sweetheart chocolate, flowers, a massage certificate or theater tickets for Valentine’s Day. Or you could do something more creative. Something from the heart that that would last far beyond February 14th, giving you both something to talk about for years. If a picture is worth 1,000 words, what would a slideshow of pictures be worth? How about a custom video? Here are three ways to show your love on video:

Propose on Video
If you’re planning to ask for your loved one’s hand in marriage this Valentine’s Day, make the proposal memorable. Incorporate video. Matt asked Ginny to marry him in a movie theater, after creating a custom trailer which she watched (along with the theater audience), not realizing what was to come. It’s a tear-jerker, with humor as well. Find it on YouTube:

DVD Slideshow
Scan old photos onto DVD and create a custom slideshow as a gift for your loved one, celebrating your years together. You can even transfer those photos to a digital picture frame, where hundreds of photos can cycle through, so you’ll never get bored. Give the slideshow or photo frame to your spouse, your parent or grandparent.

Home Movies
After a romantic dinner, bring out the home movies. No, not the 8 mm projector that breaks every time you set it up. Convert the movies to DVD. Within minutes, you can pop it into the DVD player, pour some wine, and sit back and enjoy home movies from all the years you’ve spent together.

Making Memories
If these ideas sound great, but you don’t have the knowledge, time or equipment to do it, no worries! Home Video Studio in Westfield can do it for you at a reasonable price. Studio owner Dan Weiniger will walk you through the process, giving you exactly what you want, when you want it. Contact Dan at (908) 301-9300 or email him at
