 4 Creative Summer Video Ideas

Summer Season Video Ideas

“Everything good, everything magical, happens between the months of June and August.”

– Jenny Han

Sunny skies, long days, and warm weather. Beaches, hammocks, and ice cream. What’s not to love about summer? This happy and carefree season is the perfect time to do what you love with those nearest and dearest to you. 

Capture and preserve special summer moments with Memento’s group video maker. Here are a few creative summer video ideas to get you started! 

Family Reunions

When’s the last time you saw your favorite cousin or Great Aunt Betty? Summer is the perfect time to reunite with extended family and spend quality time with loved ones you don’t see as much as you’d like. Because these gatherings typically don’t occur that often, consider capturing these special moments with a Family Reunion video

To start, designate one person at the reunion to record relatives introducing themselves and sharing what they most appreciate about their family. Next, encourage everyone to capture video footage from the reunion, whether it’s from a picnic feast, competitive cornhole game, or karaoke contest. 

Relatives can submit their clips to the Record & Upload page where the video organizer can remove duplicate clips and trim them to create a final video that introduces each family member and highlights the reunion’s best moments. When the video is finished, share it with your family, including those that couldn’t attend the reunion, so everyone can witness the fun!

A Last Hurrah & Goodbye for Graduates

For many graduating high schoolers, summer represents the last time they’ll be together with their closest friends before leaving for college, starting a job, or taking a gap year. 

Celebrate and capture this exciting, bittersweet life moment with a Graduate Goodbye video. Have each of your pals share their favorite memories growing up together, what they’ll miss most about the group, and what they’re most excited about for the next chapter of their life. Then, over the next couple of months, collect clips of your last summer together hitting your favorite local hot spots or just hanging out. 

Watch the final video together at the end of the summer before everyone goes their separate ways. Not only will the video be a sweet way to say goodbye, it will also serve as a treasured keepsake your friends can look back on throughout the years. 

Weddings

Who here HASN’T attended a summer wedding before? If you know someone tying the knot during peak wedding season and need some gift ideas, consider a thoughtful Wedding Gift video.

Collect messages of congrats and best wishes from family and friends before the wedding for a meaningful gift the happy couple will love. Want to make the gift extra special? Include footage from the wedding ceremony and reception to create a personalized digital keepsake of the couple’s special day. 

The recipients will be touched to hear from so many loved ones and see their “I do’s,” the first dance, cake cutting, and other special moments preserved for a lifetime.

Family Fun

School’s out and summer adventures are calling! Capture special family moments big and small with a Summer Family Fun video

Gather clips from seaside trips, ice cream outings, mini golf games, backyard barbeques, or weekend getaways to create a sentimental keepsake you can look back on with fondness when the kids have grown. 

One of the best parts of a family video is making it! When creating your video, be sure to get the kids involved and let them pick out the background colors and music. Your little ones will feel so proud when they see the finished product!

No matter how you use group videos this summer, you’re sure to create a personalized keepsake that preserves your most precious moments and memories!
