"Chad and Beth were by far our favorite vendors to work with for our wedding! They were so fun and gave direction without taking away from the special moments of our big day. All of our friends were so impressed with them on the day of the wedding and even more impressed when we got our pictures back - only 2 and a half weeks after our wedding! I would recommend them 100% to anyone looking for an amazing photographer and would definitely choose them again if I had to do it all over!" - Erica & Jake (6-4-17)

"Out of all our wedding vendors, Chad was definitely one of the best choices we made. Multiple people in the area recommended him as the best wedding photographer, and they were not mistaken! He responded to my emails and calls almost immediately which made booking and scheduling with him really easy. We got the best package available which included engagement portraits, bridal portraits, and all day on wedding day and it was worth every penny. Chad and Beth are so talented and they really go the extra mile to get the amazing and unique shots. They are really great at capturing those candid and emotional moments; those ended up being some of my favorite shots. It is definitely an advantage to have both of them working together because there was such variety in the photos we got from each session. They also do a great job of making everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. We love our beautiful photos so much and you definitely will too! Thanks Chad and Beth!" - Elizabeth & Jackson (4-29-17)

"Chad was wonderful, even from the first inquiry. He was ALWAYS very prompt when responding to me about any questions I may of had. His packages are wonderful, he will modify whatever you need done. I had my engagement, bridal, and wedding photos with him. His soon to be wife, Beth is fantastic too, they both work phenomenally together. They are both very laid back and relaxed...they never made us feel awkward during the shoots. I was unfortunately diagnosed with breast cancer this past February before the wedding, and he and my wedding coordinator worked around my bridal portrait session to make sure it got done before my second surgery and treatments started. He even sent me a sweet recovery card with a few prints of my bridal portraits as a surprise :) He always goes above and beyond. If you want professional, high-quality work, look no further than Chad Winstead Photography." - Lindsay & Daniel (6-11-16)

"Chad and Beth were awesome! They both were very helpful, patient, and wonderful to be around! We felt very comfortable with them, and only wish we could have been able to hang out and talk more with them on our special day! The pictures are so creative and different. Chad and Beth are great at capturing "in the moment" photos, and also I REALLY love the portraits they took. The colors in our photos are so vivid and beautiful. Chad and Beth go the extra mile, by being flexible and caring. And poor Chad put up with the cold wind on that day like a boss!" - Kelly & Trey (4-16-16)


"Chad and Beth were wonderful and my photos were breathtaking!! They captured every special moment. They were a truly calming presence at the wedding, and were totally dedicated to doing whatever me and my -now- husband wanted. The were great in helping rally the family for pictures and they were right on time with getting pictures of bridesmaids and groomsmen done before the ceremony. I plan on using them for any photos we have done in the future. I strongly suggest their services to anyone for any type of picture taking. Great prices for AMAZING work." - Peyton & Christopher (4-11-15)

"Chad and Beth are AMAZING photographers. They are so laid back and easy to work with too. My husband and I were really nervous about doing our engagement photo shoot because we had never done a photo shoot before and didn't know what to expect. We didn't want the photos to look too posed either. Chad and Beth made us feel comfortable and told us exactly what we needed to do. We had a great time doing the shoot with them. They are so creative and have the best ideas for photos. After the shoot, we even went to eat lunch together! When we got the pictures back from the engagement shoot we were blown away. The photos looked so natural and really captured us as a couple. They were beautiful and very professional. A couple months later, Chad and Beth photographed our wedding. I thought that our engagement photos were amazing, but our wedding photos were even better! They captured moments of our wedding that I didn't even know that they were photographing. They captured our special day perfectly. Not only do they take amazing shots, but they will also take the time to edit every single photo that they take. I am so glad that we went with Chad and Beth as the photographers of our special day. It really felt like they were friends instead of someone that we hired to do a job. I highly recommend Chad and Beth. They are amazing photographers and awesome people." - Kacy & Aaron (7-19-14)

"Chad and Beth did an AMAZING job with our wedding last month! We just saw the pictures and we are truly blown away. During the event they were SO pleasant to work with, very relaxed which helped us to feel relaxed, which helped them get such natural shots! We knew the location was beautiful (under a canopy of live oak trees) but we had no idea that he could make them look so stunning and breathtaking! Chad and Beth were literally laying on the ground just to get the perfect angle on the shot. It really paid off, the angles are truly artistic and beautiful. I cannot say enough about them. Chad is very professional and helpful. He took the time to have a few phone conversations with me prior to the wedding and answer the many questions I had for him. He was even able to accommodate us with the last minute request to make a slideshow for the reception from some old photos! We feel truly blessed to have such gorgeous wedding photos to forever commemorate our special day. We enthusiastically recommend their services! Thank you so much Chad and Beth!!"Alexandra & Jason (6-20-14)

"We cannot begin to describe how great Chad is as a photographer! Chad's photographic experience and professionalism is way beyond his years. This became clear during our engagement photos -- Chad and Beth were so professional, creative, and efficient. Chad takes very natural poses and caught us in our element looking like ourselves. We were nervous because we'd never done a photoshoot, so we were worried about feeling awkward in front of the camera, but Chad and Beth immediately put us at ease and made everything feel natural. We were so impressed with Chad's ability to capture photos of us in different environments. He was also incredibly quick with his turnaround and had the photos to us by the end of the same weekend that we did the engagement shoot! Our friends couldn't stop commenting on the pictures that Chad took. On our wedding day, Chad and Beth were absolutely phenomenal. They were such a calming presence and they were so efficient and professional. They captured so many great photographs of the day. Looking back, neither of us remembered seeing them taking pictures during the ceremony -- that's how good they are! They did everything they could to make our wedding day as seamless as possible. Beth even took some bridal portraits of me as I was waiting to walk down the aisle, since I hadn't chosen to do a bridal shoot before the wedding date. Once again, Chad had the pictures back to us SO quickly and even posted a "sneak peak" right away. We adore the pictures that Chad and Beth captured from our wedding day. We cannot recommend them enough - they are hands-down amazing." Megan & Jason (6-14-14)

"My beautiful bride and I tied the knot on May 17th this year and had an amazing day. Chad Winstead and his lovely assistant were absolutely amazing and soo much fun to work with! Chad has a great personality and is very open to ideas, which made our day even better because if we had a shot we imagined to be great...he took the shot but made it better somehow! Chad also took the bridal pictures a few weeks prior and although I had to wait to see them, it was well worth the wait. You are in great hands with Chad Winstead Photography and you can't beat the price for the amazing quality...worth every single penny! If you're concerned about your wedding day just remember that one thing you'll have to remember it by many years from now other than the rings and name change is the pictures...so make them count! Thank you Chad & Beth!" - Rachel & Garrett (05-17-14)
