    Bridal Photography Session with Courtney at Airlie Gardens


    I was really looking forward to the bridal session with Courney at Airlies Gardens where she was having her wedding.   First was that Courtney was awesome work with and fun to be around.  Second was I know I got to control the time with no wedding schedule.  This means lots of time and no pressure to be anywhere in 2 minutes.  For every bride who is now married you know what I mean.

    One of the great things about bridal photography as a creative profession is I get create a multiple style portfolio for brides.   With no wedding schedule rushing us, we get to take the time to have fun and relax and create some awesome bridal portraits.   

    Bridal Picture in the Garden of the Arboretum in Wilmington NC - Alice in Wonderland bridal concept and ideas

    Had a great time with Lana creating  a mixture of styles and looks.   The first picture I had the concept of alice in wonderland look and feel so I concentrated on lighting the sunflowers with a strobe directly  behind Lana pointing upwards and then another strobe on light stand at top left with grid to control the spread and maintain the detail in her awesome wedding dress.

    Bellamy Mansion Wedding | Vanessa & Seth | Chris Lang Photography





     Bellamy Mansion Wedding | Vanessa & Seth


    Vanessa & Seth had their wedding and reception at the Bellamy Mansion in Wilmington NC.   I could not have had a better time with such two awesome people.   You will see what I mean when you watch their highlight reel.  They had the best first dance I have had the pleasure to photograph and video.  Spoiler alert it is at the end of the video as an outtake.

    Not only Were Seth & Vanessa a blast work with, they had such a cool how we met story.  He are a few words from Venessa:

    "Seth and I met like a scene in a romantic comedy! I was sitting at my gate at Wilmington International Airport at 6:30 am, reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and Seth came and sat a few chairs diagonally across from me. From this moment on, I was only faking to read! Haha, I could not concentrate, as we kept staring awkwardly at each other making eye contact here and there. As we boarded the plane, Seth got in line behind me. My heart was racing with butterflies. I sat down in my seat on the plane and turned to see Seth standing there as he said, "I think that's my seat..." pointing to the window seat, with a smile on his face. I responded, "No it's not!" and we both laughed. In a two seater row, there we were, just the two of us... and we talked the entire flight! We hit it off so seamlessly and discovered that we only lived a few miles apart from each other! At the end of the flight, Seth asked for my number and the rest is history! :) "

    OK so now it's time for some video.  I filmed the highlight reel for their wedding as a supplement to a full video production wedding.  The highlight reel is short film that mirrors the photography process and is intended to be just a snapshot only of the wedding day though short video clips.  This was one instance I had video rolling for the the first dance.   I did not know Vanessa & Seth were going to break out into such a awesome  first dance.   Like every first dance it started out traditional and then to the guests surprise, Vanessa & Seth broke out into some pretty sweet moves.  




      

    I could not have had any more fun at their wedding.  Such an awesome fun couple.  On a funny note, The next day I dropped my Mom and Brother  off at the airport  as they were flying back to San Diego.  About an hour later I got a text from Vanessa.   "We are sitting behind  your Mom and Brother on the plane.  Small world...  well Wilmington is probably the smallest airport in the world.  



    If you are looking for a wedding venue in the Wilmington Area, take a look at Bellamy Mansion.  Bellamy Mansion Weddings are a lot of fun to photograph and working within the area provides such a classic backdrop for wedding photography.

    Airlie Gardens Bridal Pictures | Canon 200L f.2 lens, The Best Portrait Lens in the World? | Wilmington NC Wedding Photography by Chris Lang


    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.  If you would like to see more Airlie Gardens Wedding Photography just click the link.   Cheers Chris

    Courtnei's Bridal Session | River Landing | Wallace NC | by Chris Lang Photography

    River-Landing-Wedding-Photographers-



    A River Landing Bridal Session  

    Courtney looked amazing in her dress.   We had the perfect backdrop of River Landing to create her bridal portfolio.   As with any session, you can try your best to plan around great light and weather but ultimately you are at the whim of nature.  Our session was under very dark storm clouds.  One of the great things about shooting and creating different photography styles, is that you don't have to be pin-holed into any one style.  The thing is I like so many styles, that it is often hard for even me to choose a favorite version of a single picture.  There are so many factors that go into  creating.  From the light to the texture, to the colors, to the style,  and most important,  the personality of the people you are photographing.      With every bridal session,  I give my brides a variation of styles even producing different versions some of the same picture.  One thing is for sure... no two bridal sessions are the same.  Here are just a few from Courtnei's bridal.

    Photographing Bridals on a cloudy or off & on rainy day. How to deal with the flats (flat light).   The first set in this series I created a softer pastel style to work with the light that we had for the day. It was cloudy with darker grey clouds that produces a very flat light.  While you can never predict what kind of light you will have on a session, or a wedding day, you always have to be creative and flexible with what you have.   I think you can get amazing pictures regardless of light, but it will for sure impact some style and color.   Since the light was flat, I created a flat style to bring out the light.  I also want to bring a better balance and warmth to offset the grey's with a few different techniques of color cross processing.   Below is a picture with a flat process and the natural color that we were working with.

    Airlie Gardens Weddings | Wilmington NC | An Incredible Place To Get Married | Chris Lang Photography

    Airlie Gardens An Incredible Outdoor Wedding Venue.



    Airlie Gardens is one of my favorite places to photograph an outside or garden wedding in the Wilmingon NC area.  You can photograph there in any season of the year and get very different looks that are all amazing.  For sure spring time is the most popular time for Bridal Portraits as the Azaleas and Tulips come into bloom and light the garden on fire with incredible color.
