My Story

I’m the owner and director of Chip Dizárd Weddings. Last name Pronounced "Diz ARD" 

I’m a photographer who captures special moments both on location and in studio sessions. By using a variety of techniques I am able to deliver photographs that live forever. 

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

The bride and groom are the stars, I am merely the observer, creating a wedding photos and videos 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 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 capturing 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 capture it for you.

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