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.

    Courtnei's Bridal Session | River Landing | Wallace NC | by Chris Lang Photography

    River-Landing-Wedding-Photographers-



    A River Landing Bridal Session  

    Courtney looked amazing in her dress.   We had the perfect backdrop of River Landing to create her bridal portfolio.   As with any session, you can try your best to plan around great light and weather but ultimately you are at the whim of nature.  Our session was under very dark storm clouds.  One of the great things about shooting and creating different photography styles, is that you don't have to be pin-holed into any one style.  The thing is I like so many styles, that it is often hard for even me to choose a favorite version of a single picture.  There are so many factors that go into  creating.  From the light to the texture, to the colors, to the style,  and most important,  the personality of the people you are photographing.      With every bridal session,  I give my brides a variation of styles even producing different versions some of the same picture.  One thing is for sure... no two bridal sessions are the same.  Here are just a few from Courtnei's bridal.

    Photographing Bridals on a cloudy or off & on rainy day. How to deal with the flats (flat light).   The first set in this series I created a softer pastel style to work with the light that we had for the day. It was cloudy with darker grey clouds that produces a very flat light.  While you can never predict what kind of light you will have on a session, or a wedding day, you always have to be creative and flexible with what you have.   I think you can get amazing pictures regardless of light, but it will for sure impact some style and color.   Since the light was flat, I created a flat style to bring out the light.  I also want to bring a better balance and warmth to offset the grey's with a few different techniques of color cross processing.   Below is a picture with a flat process and the natural color that we were working with.

    Airlie Gardens Weddings | Wilmington NC | An Incredible Place To Get Married | Chris Lang Photography

    Airlie Gardens An Incredible Outdoor Wedding Venue.



    Airlie Gardens is one of my favorite places to photograph an outside or garden wedding in the Wilmingon NC area.  You can photograph there in any season of the year and get very different looks that are all amazing.  For sure spring time is the most popular time for Bridal Portraits as the Azaleas and Tulips come into bloom and light the garden on fire with incredible color.




    Airlie Oak Lawn Wedding Reception



     







    I shoot at Airlie gardens quite often and this is one of the more frequent places I get asked about when people see some of my pictures of Airlie Gardens.  I decided to put together a mini web site about my perspective (from a photographers viewpoint) of Airlie Gardens Weddings where people could see the many facets of the garden weddings at Airlie, the Pergola at Airlie Gardens, and more specifically, so it could serve as a Airlie Gardens resource and wedding ideas for people getting married there.   So if you are a bride looking for an awesome place to get married check out my Airlie Gardens Weddings resource site to see some awesome wedding photos of Airlie Gardens.   If you are still in your planning stages and looking for a  Wilmington Wedding Photographer then come on by our main websites and check out Chris Lang’s Signature style of Wedding Photography.   Check out our Airlie Garden Weddings site  Wilmington NC Photographer Wilmington NC Wedding Photographer
