Fun on a Carousel – Huntsville Alabama Wedding Photographer

Bride on a Carousel

“They are the sweetest couple and could not keep their eyes off each other the entire night.” says Allison Jansen, premier Huntsville Alabama wedding photographer. She shared with us some of her favorite photos she captured from a recent wedding that took place at St. John’s Catholic Church and the The Westin Huntsville.

The Westin not only offers a fantastic venue for a reception but it is also located in Bridge Street which leads to lots of picture opportunities and fun on the carrousel or near the fountains.

This wedding was the third wedding I have shot for the brides family. I have now photographed all three sister’s weddings in this family. Although I did not know them in the beginning I have truly loved getting to know this family and I feel honored and grateful that they have come to me for all of their weddings.

Glow sticks have been a theme for the past two weddings of this family. They break them out towards the end of the night to amp up the fun factor. 🙂

Allison’ Technique: I use a mixture of photo journalistic style with some traditional styles thrown in and then put my own artistic spin on them. We had such a fun time shooting a the carousel. The bride went into a totally hysterical fit of laughter as they rode around and around while I was getting the perfect shot.

Post Production: I did one extra spin look on one of the carousel shots.

Photo Equipment: All Nikon D3 and a D700
