Clients Say it Better

We only have one word for Chris Lang and that is awesome. Words cannot explain how impressed we are with his work. His highlight reel was just so good and captured the day so well. We are all about family and you can tell from his photographs he figured this out. Our daughter and son-in-law told us he made them feel so comfortable and just let them be themselves during their photo session. What we feel is most impressive are the special moments he captured. We are blown away at all the special moments he captured which will be memories for ever. He did all this while being very inconspicuous. Most of the time you did not even know he was there.

Wilmington NC Bridal Photography by Chris Lang Photography

One of the questions I get all the time from Brides is, should I get a bridal session? A bride in her wedding dress and no wedding schedule attached equals a great time to creatively use light and photograph you in your dress in ways I normally can not shoot on a wedding day. This allows me to photograph a complete portfolio with multiple styles and allowing to create the latest trends in bridal photography.

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 think every bride should have a bridal portrait session so to allow a time to create Fine Art Bridal Photography. So if you are still in search for Wilmington NC Bridal Photographers, Check out a bridal galleries.

North Carolina Wedding Photographers

If you are looking for a Creative North Carolina Wedding Photographers, be sure to spend some time on my website and see the different types of wedding photography styles I shoot and create. I describe my style as Lifestyle Wedding Photography. Lifestyle Wedding Photography is you, your style and personality throughout the wedding process. This includes both the engagement and bridal photography sessions.

I do not shoot just one style, but a blend of styles. I am free to create with the personalities of the couples and not bound by any one look. Whether Wedding Photojournalism, or a more hands on approach. The One thing I have learned is that no two brides are alike and no two brides see a picture the same way. I throw out the cookie cutter and handcraft every wedding picture individually. So if you are still looking for the perfect wedding photographers in Wilmington NC to capture your day, drop a line or an email or even set up a time to meet. I am laid back and easy going so there will be no sales pitch here.

The Art of ‘You”

“Lifestyle Wedding Photography”

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.

Lifestyle Weddings is about you, your story, life in the everyday. It is about capturing your wedding and personality in a free-flowing process that allows for your story to “happen.’” It gives me the freedom to do what I do… CREATE. Lifestyle wedding photography has the freedom to be any style, a mix of styles, but most importantly, about you in real life moments and how I see it. Take a little time to read about styles and how I see them and to see a little of mine. Also I hope to reveal the most important aspect of what you get in hiring a professional wedding photographer.

An Artisan Approach to Image-making


Creative Wedding Photographers - Wilmington NC

My hands are on every image from start to finish. It is my creativity, artistry, and intent that make your pictures. There is so much more than adjusting a few settings in camera that go into making your pictures... Much of what you see on my website is finished in post production. For example, I will photograph certain scenes with different cameras and technique to give me what I need in post production to create what I was thinking on scene. I create in-camera for specific picture styles that need to be created in the post process.

For me, handing my pictures over to someone else for post production just does not feel right. I can not expect another person to finish what I saw, felt and intended to create on scene. Especially when I photograph for creative style such as black and white where I might keying in on a small detail or shadow that needs to be enhanced a certain way in the post production process. They would not have the same attachment, responsibility, or intrinsic value that I have when creating something that I started..read more….
