    Chris, I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you. Thank you for the wonderful job you did on the photographs of my daughter Sarah's wedding. As I was looking at the pictures I started thinking to myself. Everyone of these "picures" is not a picture, rather they are individual works of art. I am so happy with the pictures, words cannot explain. Thank you very much. If anyone wants a reference to attest to your work, I will be more than happy to oblige. Again, thanks for a wonderful job. You captured a special day in a special way.

    With the age of digital photography, there has been a diluting of the photography talent pool, often with amateurs posing to be artists and with the consumer left with too many choices. Since my father was a professional photographer before the dawn of the digital age, I saw this transformation. When our special date was set, it was actually my wife that took this task under her wing. When she first showed me Chris's web site and asked me what I thought of it, his artistic eye immediately caught my attention. It was obvious he took a lot of time and thought to come up with photographic sets that would make your moment stand out. We didn't want to have 'that' wedding album that would consist of the same stale regurgitated shots that just about every other couple out there ends up with. While it seems risky, we were confident after meeting with Chris that he would give us the type of style we wanted in our wedding photos. The end result was beautiful work that went beyond the lens, as Chris crafted the most special shots with what I consider photographic works of art. Many of the photos he took can't be relegated to small frames. They deserve to be in a magazine or better. The total package was a huge success, from his very fair pricing, his professional work ethic, and with consistent and thoughtful follow-up throughout the entire process. When you end up deciding on a photographer, while there are many out there that will capture a beautiful wedding, Chris Lang will certainly be one of your very best options and we are very glad we got to know him. Your wedding photographs will stay with you for a lifetime, long after your memories fade, so don't risk it on such a special day. . I feel so fortunate to have found Chris. I called numerous photographers while in the planning stages, and immediately felt connected to Chris. While it seemed that many photographers treated this solely as a business deal, I could tell that Chris was both passionate and meticulous about his work. When my sister got married, we all felt like we were at the mercy of the photographer, and our memories are mainly of posing for the camera, not of enjoying the day (p.s. the photographer was a family friend). Chris, on the other hand, fit in perfectly with all the chaos, and actually made us enjoy the event more. He took a family that doesn't enjoy being photographed and put us at ease (He was so calming that he almost felt like one of the members of our family). We truly feel that he is a rockstar! Not only was he the most amazing guy to work with, but when we got our pictures back we were totally floored. We now have HUNDREDS of photos of one of the happiest days of our lives, and we can't wait to work with him again. I have to mention that these photos are the most beautiful pictures ever taken-so stunning it's hard to imagine they're even real.

The Power of Image

You know the saying, "a picture is worth a thousand words"? Have you ever stopped and looked at one picture for a long period of time? Where you were looking for the story in the image or even seeing yourself in it? There is something special when we can be captivated by the life, the person(s), and place inside the a picture. Feeling the emotion, the memory, or even just day dreaming over a picture. Now imagine yourself in that picture… It takes more than a snap of the camera to create a story in a picture. It takes an image-maker.

Creative Approach…it is not all the same.

Making great pictures starts with a creative approach. It is how you see things, observe light, and most important , interact with people. There has to be a connection with your photographer. My approach is to create for each individual client something that is individual to them or to their brand.

For the corporate or business client, it is about establishing a relationship. It is here where I can connect with them, their goals, and needs.

"YOU" empower the picture!

Powerful image comes from much more than the camera and creative post processing. It comes from you. Yes, YOU! Everyone has a powerful and beautiful image. It's my job to make your image; to get to the true essence of who you are. It is about getting you to a place where your personality consumes and commands the picture. It can be serious or even humorous, and even, some place in-between. It is my creativity and artistry that puts it all together. But it is "YOU" that empowers the picture.

Creative Capture

lifestyle picture - creative portrait - wilmingotn nc photographers - Chris Lang Photography

Image-capture… the finger print of a photographers style.

The image capture builds on my creative approach to making pictures. Image capture is also my own individual to my style. Everything from the camera gear that I use, to the way I create and shape light.

Every professional photographer has their own method and style of image capture. This allows me to create in-camera. and is part of my photography style. Depending on the type of photography job, the image capture process can be just the starting point for the design. It really depends on the project or the session. Often the image capture is the standalone product, however, there are many aspects of creativity that go into the image making process.

When making composite photos or working with art directors on a branding process, the creative image capture is often just the first step in creating for the post production process. An example of this is this picture of the pirates. Looking for

Photography & Design

The creative design can be basic post production of an image or even a higher detailed process to create artful images such as composite photographs. This pirate pictures is an example of a composite photograph. It is a series of images blended together to create a story.

There is no cookie cutter process in my work. The creativity ebbs and flows and so does my design process.

Every image tells a story... every story, needs an image-maker.

Design for Purpose

Every image tells a story... every story, needs an image-maker.
Chris Lang

Whether your family, your wedding, or your business brand… your image matters. Being an image-maker is much more than taking pictures, it is about “making your picture and shaping your image.” It is about crafting a picture with purpose, about making a picture that tells your story. If a picture is worth a thousand words then make every picture count, because your pictures says a lot about you.

Looking for the best Bridal Photographers in Wilmington NC?

Are you looking for the best bridal portrait photographers in the Wilmington area to capture you in your dream dress? Hands down Bridal Portraits are one of my favorite photography sessions. A bride in her wedding dress and no wedding schedule attached equals a great time to creatively use light and shoot you in your dress in ways we normally can not 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.
