Everywhere we go, I take a lot of pictures to remind us of our trips. Of course, there are also a lot of photos being taken locally to remind us of the fun things we do at home. The kids love to go back and look at these photos to remember what they’ve seen and done over the years. It’s fun to relive the memories. I have a lot of videos, too! When cameras advanced to where it is easy to shoot in video mode, too, I would take an occasional video to add more depth to my photo memories. Before that, we had to rely on the video camera. The more recent video cameras have a hard drive, so the videos can easily be uploaded to the computer with the photos, but what about before that?
If I want to look back to say… my wedding (a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away or so it may seem), I would have to pull out a VHS tape. Do you remember those? They came after the 8-track, cassette, and Beta… Since we just had our 19th anniversary, I’d be afraid to even try to put it in our aging video player. You know, with it being that old, it might just snap. So, to preserve those memories, I sent my wedding video and a video from when the teenager was a little girl to Yes Video to have these precious memories preserved. You know what? Yes Video transferred the contents of my videos onto DVDs and sent both the videos and DVDs right to me. The best part of it? It’s all preserved online!
When we first got the DVDs back, DS11 was dying to see what his sister was like before he was born. This video had covered the summer before he was born right up until the time he came home from the hospital. He popped that DVD in to watch, much to his sister’s chagrin… Soon, he was having a ball watching his sister play in the back yard, have her 3rd birthday party with Chuck E. Cheese, and welcome DS11 home. Of course, he gave her a hard time for wanting a hug from the “wrong mouse”. Soon, the teenager warmed up to the video and enjoyed reliving her reaction to being a big sister.
The other video I sent was that aging wedding video. Now, remember, the wedding was just over 19 years ago, and the video was taken with our video camera. In other words, the video wasn’t really high quality to begin with, but it is nice to have it preserved. Want to see a glimpse? Check out one of the trailers Yes Video created?
Not many people know this, but we were married at a theme park in Missouri in a small ceremony. It was a nice intimate setting, and we didn’t have to do a lot of planning for it.
Our family has loved being able to go down memory lane with videos that we really didn’t have access to watch anymore. Have you preserved your memories? Yes Video has been converting memories to for a long time. I’m so glad that I tried out their service because I have a lot more video memories to unlock!
