Bridal Session with Lana | Wilmington NC Wedding Photographer | Chris Lang Photography

One of the great things about bridal photography as a creative profession is I get create a multiple style portfolio for brides.   With no wedding schedule rushing us, we get to take the time to have fun and relax and create some awesome bridal portraits.   

Bridal Picture in the Garden of the Arboretum in Wilmington NC - Alice in Wonderland bridal concept and ideas

Had a great time with Lana creating  a mixture of styles and looks.   The first picture I had the concept of alice in wonderland look and feel so I concentrated on lighting the sunflowers with a strobe directly  behind Lana pointing upwards and then another strobe on light stand at top left with grid to control the spread and maintain the detail in her awesome wedding dress.

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

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
