This disclosure includes techniques to automatically date a video based on a matching photo. With user permission, the video is analyzed to determine an identity of a person and an identifying feature depicted in the video. Based on the identity of the person, a photo associated with the person in the video that includes the identifying feature is identified. Metadata is extracted from the image to determine a date of capture of the image. If the date of capture of the image is different from the date of capture of the video, a suggestion is provided to the user to change the date of capture of the video to be the same as the date of capture of the image.
