Interestingly enough it was Chris's work that ultimately lead us to getting married in Wilmington. We were searching the web for places and ideas when we ran across Airlie Garden photos that Chris had taken. We set up a short trip over the holidays to visit Wilmington and Chris was very accommodating to meet us at his studio that weekend. The quality of his work is exceptional but that probably isn't the first thing that comes to mind as odd as that sounds. The most memorable thing about Chris was the overall experience he provided throughout the entire process. From the moment we met him we really felt as if we have known him forever. Given the general stress, excitement, and complexity of planning a wedding he really puts your mind at ease with his ability to walk you through the process and offering up many ideas and approaches that will work for you. The reality is that most people don't really know what they want and he was certainly able to map out a plan, approach, and package that worked for us. We rated him a 5 out of 5 across the board without hesitation. The quality of his work (pictures) is impeccable from clarity, variety, and really being able to capture the essence of the day...not just lining up and snapping pictures. Chris was always easy to get in touch with before, during, and after the wedding and his professionalism and flexibility were also top shelf. He tirelessly worked with us to get our photo album and canvas portraits to be exactly what we wanted and he did not stop until we were 100% satisfied. One might think you would pay a fortune for this level of service but his prices are also very reasonable and he also was willing to customize a package and price for us since we had a small and simple wedding. Without hesitation I would recommend Chris for a wedding or any special event that you would want high quality pictures to enjoy the memories for a lifetime.

My Wedding Photography Philosophy… Keep it fun, Keep it natural & free flowing

That is keep it simple. I put a lot of information on my wedding 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, photographers children’s weddings, and have many brides who are aspiring photographers. I have learned that some people want a lot of information and want to read about about styles of wedding photography and my take. Others want to keep it simple. I am humbled by the fact that other people see my work and call it inspiring, especially from other professionals.

I find some people will read every word, and then there are people who will just look at the pictures (thats’ me). For this reason I have incorporated a lot of pictures on my website which is contrary only showing your best work. This is to share the diversity in styles that I create in wedding photos. In the end, I have a lot of people who just hire me and say “just do what you do as we trust you,” and others who love to talk ideas and styles.

In short, I keep the process relaxed, simple and fun.

There is somehting very intrinsic to me about creating and finishing what I started in camera. It is my drive, it is what motivates me. It is by my hands that your pictures are created. It is my art, my craft, my reputation… I don’t trust that to just anyone else. When you hire me you hire me. Not an associate photographer or a post production assitant. Sure it takes more time, more hours but it is my art. That is why my works looks differnt because it is differnt.

Artisan Photography - Hand Crafted by One

If you made it this far thank you for taking the time on my web site. I hope you’re enjoying my work. I am grateful to be a full-time creative professional working in multiple fields and for a pretty diverse group of clients. What drives me? Pretty simple. It is creating.

Whether photography or video, I could never work in a cookie cutter process. It’s about enjoying every opportunity and every person I get to work with. It’s about investing my time, experience, and talent into you and your families who expect my best in every moment.

I am an image-maker. My hands are on every image from start to finish. I shoot certain scenes very differently in camera because I know what I want to do in the creative post production. For me, handing my pictures over to someone else for post production does not feel right. They did not see or feel what I was doing in camera so I can not expect them to have the same attachment, responsibility, intrinsic reward that I have when creating something that I started. For me, it is finishing the creative process of what I started in camera.

Taking pictures with a camera is only half of the process to create art. Even though most my images only need a little color correction and sharpening, there is still an interpretation in the simple post production (what we used to call developing). My creative works and “Signature Photographs” are a completely different process that is very organic, and very different from one to the next. I can spend hours on one photo that captivates my attention. It is not uncommon for me spend 12-14 hours a day in the creative post process. It is not work..it is a passion that brings an intrinsic reward. So there it is, one short answer of why I think I am different. You will have to explore my website to get the answers to this question.

The one thing you will find is there is not any one style of photography on my website because I am not any one style photographer. For me, the styles & moods change especially with light. So my style will change and that is how I create. It is taking any given situation and creating something special, rememberable, one of a kind.

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. 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. It is a trait passed on from the beginning. I create, because I was created.
Chris Lang

I always tell people you need to trust your photographer, not only with your image, but with the details. There is more than operating a camera to being a complete professional. I have a lot of fun at what I do and make a lot of friends along the way. My reputation is everything and I go above and beyond to make sure your experience and pictures are world class.
