Chris Lang is a phenomenal photographer! He is punctual, responsive, and provides high quality photos of your wedding. Chris shot my engagement, bridal and wedding photographs which now decorate my entire house! He listens to what shots you want and finds a way to get the most amazing candid pictures. I would recommend Chris Lang Photography to any bride who is looking on getting exactly what she wants. I considered myself to be a picky bride and I was more than thrilled with the images created by Chris Lang.

MY PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE

Well, it depends. Some days I photograph a journalistic style, somedays I shoot professional sports or commercial photography, and others a creative and lifestyle approach. When comes to weddings, that can also change. I try to be be flexible and adaptive to my wedding couples needs. Some people love a very creative look and colors while others love a classic look that resemble the film days. My wedding style is a blend. If I had to put a defined wedding style to how I generally photograph a wedding it would probably be:

5% classic or traditional
20% fine art -creative
75% journalistic and or candid

It can change with the style and personality of the couples I photograph. This is why refer my style of
wedding photography in my own terms and like to use Lifestyle Wedding Photography. My style adapts to you but still remains my style in that it is my creativity the makes the picture and style. My photography style is rooted in my own creativity in that I am not trying to emulate anyone else work. There is no cookie-cutter process. As with creativity that is always in a constant state of change, my style also changes with the personalities and circumstances.

Part of my style is shaped by
my camera gear. I know many photographers/friends would differ on this point but the truth is my gear allows me to photograph certain styles. My camera equipment yields different looks with different light. Different lenses give me different perspectives and without getting to technical, different gear creates different looks. There are things a $6000 lens can do that others cannot. This does influence the look and style of my pictures. For me, photography gear is a direct extension of my style.

Part of my wedding style is using 3-4 cameras interchangeably and pretty much at the same time. My style is to capture different perspectives of the same scene that are often non-repeatable. How I carry and create with my gear has been a result of years of trial and error. I use a significant amount of photography equipment during weddings. I average on full day wedding coverage the use of 4 cameras and 7-10 different lenses. This is individual to me. Choosing the lens, the camera, the settings, type of lighting and how I use that lighting is all part of my individual style.

I think to really understand my style is to look at the evidence. That is, look at my pictures and the different styles on my website. The number one thing that affects my style is CREATIVITY. Creativity is hard it explain. It ebbs and flows. It is alway sin a state of change, state action. Creativity by definition cannot sit still or do the same over and over. It motivates and challenges me. It is something intrinsic that drives me to work hard and create something special for my clients. At the very core… it is creativity that is my style.


My philosophy is keep it simple. I put a lot of info only site about styles and process but the reality is my wedding photography process is not complex by any means. I have had the privilege to photograph other photographers weddings and have many brides who are spring photographers hire me for as their wedding photographer. I am often humbled by the fact that other people see my work and call it inspiring.

I decided to put a different take on my wedding photography site and talk in depth about some philosophy and style as I find many people are interested in and read every word. I have all included a lot of pictures on my website which is contrary to the average site as I wanted to show the diversity in styles that I create. In the end I have a lot of people who hire me and say just do what you do as we trust you.

In short, I keep things simple and simple or can talk your ear of about ideas and styles.

Creativity

My passion lies in the mystery that is creativity. For me, there is relationship, there is life in creativity. There is something intrinsic, there is satisfaction, and there is an unfolding enlightenment. I create, not simply by understanding that creativity is in me, but realizing it is my design, it is in my DNA. It is in the core of my being, my very existence. It is the fingerprint of a creative designer. Evidence of intent, evidence of an intelligent design. The mystery that began the ages, the trait passed on from the begining. I create, because I was created.

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.
