I am not even sure where to begin! I looked around forever for the perfect photographer.. I met with many different local photographers. I can't even explain it he truly has an eye for photography like no other. He put in so much time on my wedding day and capture above and beyond what I even ever imagined. My photo gallery was sent and when I looked at my pictures it took my breath away. I am very picky with photographs but for once I had so many great pictures

Frequently Asked Questions About Wedding Photography

  • Do You Travel?

    Yes. I travel pretty much anywhere worldwide to accommodate events.

  • I have to plan and book my wedding profesionals from afar. How do I know if you are legit.

    This a great question to ask. Chris Lang Photography is a sub corp of ProMotionPicture Co. that is a registered Corporation in the State of North Carolina. With the age of digital photography and ease of making an online business look amazing it is more and more important to ask the this question. I believe the best way to answer this question is to have actual clients answer for me as the evidence is in their satisfaction.

    I also put some of my clients reviews on every page of my website to help answer this question. You can also see the “About Chris” page for some more my history and background in the professional photography world.

  • Do you have an assitant?

    I think most people ask this question because it is on a list of questions to ask. The answer is it really depends. Assistants do not have an impact on how I work or create. So the answer is yes, no, just depends. In the end you are hiring me and I have built systems to work efficiently by myself. I will always have the resources needed to cover any event. I would not get so held up on how many people will be at your event as more people do not necessarily mean more or better pictures. I carry all my gear on me and have three working cameras on me at all times. I probably do not look like most wedding photographers with the gear I carry. I like to have all my creative options on me because things happen fast and I always create on the fly. I have photographed at the same time filming video only my own using 7 cameras and 12 different lenses. While this is not ideal in most situations it really depends on the photographer and their experiece. I can better explain in person or over a phone chat about how I work.

  • What about 2nd photographers?

    All my packages are based on me being your wedding day photographer. Additional photographers can be added if you feel the need to have them. The most common question is how can you be at two places at the same time during the getting read process. It is all about forward planning and having a game plan.

    I will do a needs assessment of your wedding needs. After I speak with people during consultations and explain how I work, my clients have a better understanding in how I work. I think the most mis-understood, mis informed information in the wedding photography world is that more photographers will give you better coverage or more pictures. This is not necessarily true. There are some benefits and there are also some drawbacks depending on many factors such as the location of the wedding and the operating conditions.

    There are times when more people are just plain distracting to your guests. One of the big complaints I hear from people during consultation is that they were at a wedding and the photographers were all over the place making noise and a distraction. On the other hand there are times where 2nd photographers can be an asset. The one thing I would not get so hung up on is the number of photographers you think you need. It is more important to find a photographers style that you love.

    I will say this… there are some photographer that need to work with two or even three other photographer to cover what they need. For me, I am comfortable, creative and operational by myself but that is not to say I will always be by myself. I have put 4 person teams together to capture weddings so it really just depends.

    This is another great top that should be addressed at more length if you have questions.

  • What does it take to book you for my wedding day?

    Because our industry is unique in that I can book weddings 2 years out form the actual wedding date, a contract and deposit are required to reserve your wedding date. This is a secure online process that can be handled from afar. Clients will receive an online portal where they can complete the contract and keep track of the booking process.

  • How long does it take to get our photos?

    Since my hands are on every image even in the post production, delivery can vary especially depending on the time of the season. Typically, I will have your online viewing gallery up within 3-4 weeks of your wedding date. It is a handcrafted process and sometimes creativity charts it own course.

  • What kind of equipment do you use?

    Primarily Canon gear. Probably easier to send you to my gear page at Chris Lang Photography where I spend a little time talking about the tools I like to use.

  • Whart is a Bridal Sesion? Should I or do I really need one?

    Bridal Sessions are my favorite session for creating artistic bridal photography. I often form people that it is really not their thing but there is so many benefits to having a bridal session done. So if you are asking the quesiton of “Do I need a Bridal Session,” I go into more detail about some of the benefits on my “In White” The Art of Bridal Photography Page.
