About US

Idea Place Media Services owners Loretta and Gary Sikes are here to make your precious memories safe, secure, and accessible. They will treat your tapes, home movies, photos, slides, and audio treasures like their own.

Loretta developed a passion for saving special memories after her parents divorced. Her mother ended up with the photos and her father took the film. She began learning about media transfer to make all of those memories available to every family member.

After high school, Loretta served in the Navy, working in Communications for ten years. She reenlisted in the Army, was deployed to Iraq and Kuwait, and recently retired from the Army Reserves.

Gary spent thirty years teaching high school and middle school algebra while also giving his time to homeless and prison transition ministries.

The couple both enjoy photography, home movies, and all things video.

For the best in care, service, and quality, trust your most precious possessions to Idea Place Media Services.

We take joy in preserving your precious memories!
