Great coverage. I worked as an ad agency art director in NYC for 25 years and looked at 100's of commercial pro photographer's portfolios....big name photographers. Your wedding pix stand out in comparison.”

Bridal Photography Sessions are one of my favorite photography sessions. A bride in her wedding dress with out a wedding day schedule attached equals a great time to creatively use light and photograph you in your dress in more creative ways than we can normally shoot on a wedding day. This allows me to photograph a complete portfolio with multiple styles to choose form. Any one that has been married will tell you that your wedding day will be a blur. The great thing about bridals, even if you don’t plan to have a portrait on display the day of your wedding, is that we know going into your wedding that we have you and your dress covered when things get behind schedule on your wedding day.

I do not have to be your wedding photographer to be your bridal portrait photographer. I think every bride should have a bridal portrait session. I explain in more detail on my wedding website where you should go and check out some awesome bridal and wedding photography.

I love wedding photography and have my own signature style of wedding photography. I coin my style as Lifestyle Wedding Photography. Lifestyle Wedding Photography is you, your style and personality throughout the wedding process. This includes both the engagement photography and bridal photography process. I do not photograph just one style, but a blend of styles that are free to create with the personalities of the couples I work with. One thing I have learned is that no two brides are alike and no two brides see a picture the same way. I threw out the cookie cutter and handcraft every wedding picture myself.

Lifestyle - Wedding - Photrography

Lifestyle wedding photography may be a bit difficult to define as there is not an industry definition. In fact, I do not know of anyone that refers to a wedding photography style to as “Lifestyle Wedding Photography” by itself. I do, and here’s why. I am a multiple-style photographer. I do not tend to stay in one style or the other but rather photograph several different styles at the same time. For me, lifestyle wedding photography is an attitude, a flexibility, a way to create individual styles that reflect the personalities of my clients. Therefore, it is fluid, free flowing and not bound by any “one” look. That’s why you will see a blend of styles on my website. It is about me creating with your style or “lifestyle,”not just shooting mine. There is a lot that goes into style. Take a little time to read about styles and how I see them.

This is a snapshot of what we do. We have a whole website dedicated just for weddings… If you are looking for Bridals , Engagements or Wedding Photography be sure to visit Chris Lang Weddings for a in-depth portfolio and wedding resources.

When it comes down to choosing your wedding photographer, there are a lot of things to take into consideration. Imperative things to ponder would be the style, professional experience, professionalism, and reputation of the wedding photographer. There are many different styles of wedding photography. Most important, however, is the artistry of your photographer.

    Bridal Photography Session with Courtney at Airlie Gardens


    I was really looking forward to the bridal session with Courney at Airlies Gardens where she was having her wedding.   First was that Courtney was awesome work with and fun to be around.  Second was I know I got to control the time with no wedding schedule.  This means lots of time and no pressure to be anywhere in 2 minutes.  For every bride who is now married you know what I mean.

    Airlie Gardens weddings are amazing but when you have just the bride in this amazing garden wedding venue for a few hours it to create must have bridal photos in the garden it is a real treat.  There are so many locations to photograph in Airlie that you have to pick and choose as the creative backdrops are endless in my mind.  Of course on of the most iconic pictures to have made is the Pergola at Airlie Gardens.

    Airlie Gardens Bridal Pictures | Canon 200L f.2 lens, The Best Portrait Lens in the World? | Wilmington NC Wedding Photography by Chris Lang


    Airlie Gardens Bridal Session | by Chris Lang Photography | Wilmington NC Wedding Photographer 



    Airlie Gardens Tops The List for Stunning Bridal Photography - By Chris Lang Photography, Wilmington NC Wedding Photographer.   Airlie Gardens, well known for it's Airlie Garden Weddings, is not only the perfect place for weddings, but also tops my list for places to photograph bridal sessions.   Airlie Gardens provides  such iconic visuals for brides wanting garden ambiance for their bridal pictures.  Lena was not getting married at Airlie but loved the location and backdrop.   Although we missed the Tulips and Azalea blooms, we found a field of yellow flowers that provided a spring time feel for her bridal pictures. 




    Shooting with a pair of Canon 1dx's and a Canon 5d MarkIII, I used a limited selection of lenses to include: Sigma 50 1.4 Art (I actually use this lens over my Canon 50 1.2 L lens) Canon 24-70 2.8L Canon 14 2.8 L Canon 200 2.0 L Eighty percent of this session was photographed with one of the 1DX's and the 200 f 2.0L.   This is a strong statement, but there may be no finer portrait lens in the world than the Canon 200 f 2.0L.   Due to the size, this lens does not come out often as it is a beast to tug around during a wedding.  I use the Canon 200L F2.0  primarily for bridal portraits  and occasionally engagement sessions.  I have owned this lens for 5 years and do not use it enough.  I am reminded of this every time I download the pictures from a session.  The cannon 200 f2.0 makes it all happen inside the camera.   So does a $6000 lens make that much of a difference?   To me, this lens can do things that no other lenss can. It creates an image that stands out on its own.  Again, the only downside from a my perspective is it is big and not a tug around lens.    Here are a few with the Canon 200 f 2.0 L glass.   
















    Enough about lenses because this session was about Lena.  She looked amazing in her dress and was absolutely fun to work with and photograph.  You can see from her expressions that she was at ease and having fun a lot fun also.  This is what every bride should expect and experience during their bridal session.  It is as much about the experience of creating the pictures as it is about getting your pictures.  Bridals, as I have said before, are one of my favorite photography sessions for so many reasons.  You can read more about why I think every bride should get a bridal session on my website.  The best part was receiving Lena's email after she first looked at the gallery.  Here is a an excerpt   "Chris…I am blown away. The color, background everything is so perfect. These are a dream come true."   This for me is why I love creating.  It is what makes my profession so rewarding.  It's not just about making great pictures, it is about making people excited about their pictures.   If you have any questions about Bridal Photography, give me a ring or drop an email.  Would look forward to creating a bridal portfolio for you.  If you would like to see more Airlie Gardens Wedding Photography just click the link.   Cheers Chris
