Tears of Joy Video and Photography        



Archiving Your Memories


Bring your memories into the 21st Century 

Videotapes, prints and slides all have a definite life span so getting those images onto a more stable DVD is essential. 

Photos, Slides, Negatives, and Document Scanning

Pictures, mementos and 35mm Slides Scanned to DVD 


  • Do you have your pictures in shoe-boxes where no one can see them?  
  • Maybe you're not even that organized, they are stuck in dresser drawers.  
  • Even if they are in albums, how much space do they take up?  
  • Do you hold on to letters, children’s schoolwork and artwork, but hate the space it takes?  
  • What would happen to your pictures and important papers if a fire or natural disaster happened?     

Items scanned in your choice of 300 or 600 DPI. Unlike big chain stores, we hand process every image for safekeeping, returning them to you in the same condition you gave them to us.


Pictures that are faded or have minor flaws will be corrected with the scanning.  Major picture editing will be charged extra if requested by you.  We give each picture individual attention for the best quality to you.
