Greetings, and thanks for stopping by! My name is Richard Lizama. I'm the owner and videographer of Lizama Videography. Here's a little bit about me and what I do.
I'm a fan of music--which is kind of an understatement. Since I was a little one I would always listen to music and visualize what I was feeling in my head. Music is and always has been my main inspiration for many things in my life. About 12 years ago during the summer before my sophomore in high school in Amarillo, Texas, I was reading about this class where I would get to listen to music all day and play with electronics while I was at it. As I turned down the volume to the Dave Matthews Band (Before These Crowded Streets) CD in my bulky, AA battery powered, RCA CD Player I thought, " Where do I sign up?!"
Mrs. Larkan put me in front of an editing bay and told me to get to work. Then she put a video camera in my hand and told me to get out, interview people, and film things around campus. Little did I know my life would change a few years later because of her. We all have at least one teacher we remember fondly right? Well today, I'm fortunate enough to still consider her a great mentor and friend. Thank you Mrs. Larkan.
I studied film and mainly television in college for a couple years where I developed a love of documentaries and storytelling, but I became turned off by the potential 24 hour a day routine stuck inside a TV studio for less than ideal pay. So I did a 180 degree turn and switched majors. I finished my studies at Texas State University with a BA in Political Science and began working in another passion of mine--college administration--all while stockpiling music, inspiration, ideas, and concepts for video and film.
Where am I going with all of this?
Basically with my background, I'm not your typical wedding videographer. You'll have a formally trained, independent-minded videographer at your wedding who's approach to filming your wedding is different. You and your family provide the tools needed to tell your story on your day of days. During filming you won't feel overwhelmed by massive equipment in your way, or lighting directly in your face. In your video you'll have a thoughtful mix of traditional film making fused with indie film making. Lastly--be prepared for the love, heart, romance, and fun I'm going to capture at your wedding.
Let's create something great together.

Richard was so kind from the get go. He is great at staying in contact during the planning process, and was such a pleasure to work with on the day. It was like having a friend there filming everything without being intrusive. He really is a nice guy! We haven't seen the video yet, but are very excited!Sent on 12/11/2013

Richard Lizama did an amazing job with our video. He captured every detail that made our wedding special. His editing did a great job telling a story with smooth transitions and highlighting the subtleties that made our wedding special. The video created a great mixture of laughter, tears and inspiration. The music selection paralleled the feel of wedding exactly. At the wedding you could barely tell he was there yet in the video he seemed to capture every angle. The video was obviously the result of careful planning, expertise, experience and pain staking attention to detail. We love out video so much! We’ve already watched it so many times since we got it just a few day ago. Thank you Richard for giving us the incredible video that we will cherish forever!Sent on 06/25/2013

I first saw a wedding highlights video done by Lizama Videography of an acquaintance's wedding 3 years ago, and knew right away that when I got married I would book them for my wedding, and I am so glad that I did. Richard was incredibly friendly and made us feel comfortable right off the bat. They also gave us great advice and tips (like how to cut our cake!)Sent on 01/24/2013
I am so pleased with our experience,,, highly recommend!
Lizama Videography is a top notch videography company. Not only is the quality of the final product breathtaking, but the customer service that you get between booking and the wedding far surpasses others in the industry! You will not regret trusting them with the biggest day of your life.
Richard and his team are awesome to work with! He is very professional and very considerate of the photographer, his unobtrusive documentary approach is similar to that of a seasoned photojournalist. I would absolutely recommend his service to everyone, I look forward to working with Lizama Videography in the future!
Every time I work with Richard and Paul at Lizama Videography it's a pleasure. As the DJ, I like vendors that are easy to get along with and actually have an eye for talent. I've seen several of their trailers and plan to tell all my customers about them. Their professionalism, dedication, and work ethic are unmatched. If you hire these guys, you will never wonder "where is my videographer" and that's because they go above and beyond to help all of their brides. I plan to hire them for my wedding in 2012. That should say a lot since I've worked with all the best videographers in Austin.
