An Event Lasts a Day, Memories Last Forever.

Chip Dizárd Weddings

My name is Dizárd (pronounced Diz Hard), Chip Dizárd. Movies are my passion; filming, editing, producing and distributing wedding/events videos are the way I choose to express that.

I’m the owner and director of Chip Dizard Wedding Films.

I feel most alive when I feel the camera in my hands. When I point at a subject, the subject becomes alive.

What I love most is holding my camera and being the DP, director of photography, just like in films. It’s what I wake up thinking about everyday. My cameras are my tools; wedding & event  movies are my form of artistic expression.

The bride and groom are the stars, I am merely the observer, creating a wedding video in a cinematic style.  My specialty is a stylish, slightly stylized video. I don’t want to simply record the events of the day in an obvious and plain way. I want to create a modern, clean, and interesting video. A video that will hold your interest every time, all the time.

I strive to capture the feelings and emotions of the wedding or event day. I certainly won’t miss recording the beauty: the bride in her gown, the flowers, the decoration, the cake—everything you chose with such care. I’ll also find the colors and light, the movement, the sounds, the music, and the scene changes.

But above all, it’s the emotions and feelings, the smiles, laughter, and even the happy tears that I wish to preserve, the essence of a beautiful relationship saved as precious memories of your wedding.

People ask me if I get tired of filming a weddings. Absolutely not! I never tire of my art. Whether it’s a religious wedding, non-religious, ethnic, traditional, or non-traditional, each wedding is unique. It’s as if I’m watching something happen for the first time. And the truth is, I am. Your wedding happens just once and I’m privileged to create your wedding video for you.

When I’m not filming a wedding, working on editing  or teaching other videographers I love going to movies, which, I suppose, is not a surprise. I also like playing golf,  and of course, being with my family.


Imagine the possibilities.

It’s similar to the way theatrical movies are made. The second camera gets a second angle, a second opinion, another view, another vision and, importantly, more footage which is valuable in the editing and production process. Two videographers help each other with equipment and set-up, saving important time that can be spent on shooting more of your wedding. Two videographers working in tandem create a more complete, more detailed, story of your day.

The main feature is a fully edited and produced, 20-40 minute long video that covers your entire wedding day; from the preparation, through the ceremony, to the reception. It includes the most memorable and important parts of the ceremony, the announcement of the new couple at the reception, the first dance, cutting the cake, the toast and so on.
A Love Story is a video that we shoot and produce before your wedding. What it contains is entirely up to you, although we have lots of experience and plenty of good ideas to lend should you want them. It can be a story of how you met, how you planned your wedding, your favorite romantic spots, or just the two of you enjoying each other—taking a walk, playing around, dancing, kissing. It takes anywhere from four to twelve hours to film, depending on the story that you want to tell, the locations, and so on.

The highlight video is a summary of your wedding day, set to a song of your choice. It includes the most powerful images of your wedding. It’s usually pretty upbeat and energetic, although that depends on the combination of the images and the music that’s chosen. The best part is that it’s small and short and you can share it with anyone online. You can also put in your iPod or iPhone.

It’s a fun and short video to let your guests know the date of your wedding so they can put it on their calendars before you send out your invitations. It can replace a Save the Date mailed announcement or can be in addition to it. We can film a Save the Date video during the engagement or Love Story session, or at another time.

Kristina + Asa Save the Date [Video]

Kristina + Asa

I had the opportunity to film behind the scenes videos for Kenny Clapp of Clapp Studios and capture a Save the Date video for a wonderful couple, Kristina and Asa. I first met Kristina while she was a media student at Morgan State University and we became friends as she studied under my good friend Eric Dodson. Kenny and I often say we have good shoots, but the energy of Kristina and Asa were amazing and that always creates good photos and videos. See for yourself below and look for a longer form engagement video on my blog soon.

#365DaysofJoy Rachel + Dennis

Rachel and Dennis

I first met Rachel on a private business Facebook group this summer called Mario Armstrong's Never Settle Club . The group is focused on launching your passion into profit.  I connected with Rachel on the group as she shared many inspiring posts.  She also shared in the group that she was getting remarried to the same man, Dennis and wanted to show people that love could really work a second time around despite mistakes in the past. This was no ordinary ceremony, but a celebration of love and forgiveness.  I was honored that she choose me to capture her special day
