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.

Friday 24th March 2017
One of the most amazing wedding venues on the North Carolina coastline is Airlie Gardens. Just 5 minutes from Wrightsville Beach you would never think you were so close when walking in these lush gardens filled with majestic oaks.
Christina wanted her bridal portrait made at River Landing so any time I can shoot there without a wedding schedule attached I’m in. Any wedding photographer will tell you wedding days fly by and much of the day is run and gun. Having an hour or two to take our creative time with a bride alone and no wedding day schedule attached makes bridal one of my favorite sessions. I think every bride should have a bridal session because it allows me to document and create with different types of light that I would not normally get on a wedding day. If you are looking for a North Carolina Wedding Photographers, drop me a line or stop by my Lifestyle Wedding Photography site to see my signature style of wedding photography.
Time to get things rolling again on social media after a long winter break. Check out this Bridal Session at the Arboretum last fall. Thinking of warmer days! Getting ready for the spring rush of bridals. My favorite time.
Airlie Gardens Bridal Session | by Chris Lang Photography | Wilmington NC Wedding Photographer
Airlie Gardens Tops The List for Stunning Bridal Photography - By Chris Lang Photography, Wilmington NC Wedding Photographer. Airlie Gardens, well known for it's Airlie Garden Weddings, is not only the perfect place for weddings, but also tops my list for places to photograph bridal sessions. Airlie Gardens provides such iconic visuals for brides wanting garden ambiance for their bridal pictures. Lena was not getting married at Airlie but loved the location and backdrop. Although we missed the Tulips and Azalea blooms, we found a field of yellow flowers that provided a spring time feel for her bridal pictures.
Shooting with a pair of Canon 1dx's and a Canon 5d MarkIII, I used a limited selection of lenses to include: Sigma 50 1.4 Art (I actually use this lens over my Canon 50 1.2 L lens) Canon 24-70 2.8L Canon 14 2.8 L Canon 200 2.0 L Eighty percent of this session was photographed with one of the 1DX's and the 200 f 2.0L. This is a strong statement, but there may be no finer portrait lens in the world than the Canon 200 f 2.0L. Due to the size, this lens does not come out often as it is a beast to tug around during a wedding. I use the Canon 200L F2.0 primarily for bridal portraits and occasionally engagement sessions. I have owned this lens for 5 years and do not use it enough. I am reminded of this every time I download the pictures from a session. The cannon 200 f2.0 makes it all happen inside the camera. So does a $6000 lens make that much of a difference? To me, this lens can do things that no other lenss can. It creates an image that stands out on its own. Again, the only downside from a my perspective is it is big and not a tug around lens. Here are a few with the Canon 200 f 2.0 L glass.
Enough about lenses because this session was about Lena. She looked amazing in her dress and was absolutely fun to work with and photograph. You can see from her expressions that she was at ease and having fun a lot fun also. This is what every bride should expect and experience during their bridal session. It is as much about the experience of creating the pictures as it is about getting your pictures. Bridals, as I have said before, are one of my favorite photography sessions for so many reasons. You can read more about why I think every bride should get a bridal session on my website. The best part was receiving Lena's email after she first looked at the gallery. Here is a an excerpt "Chris…I am blown away. The color, background everything is so perfect. These are a dream come true." This for me is why I love creating. It is what makes my profession so rewarding. It's not just about making great pictures, it is about making people excited about their pictures. If you have any questions about Bridal Photography, give me a ring or drop an email. Would look forward to creating a bridal portfolio for you.
