Allen Centennial Gardens

On August 30, 2009 Xu and Enfu Hui were married at the Allen Centennial Gardens in Madison, Wisconsin. It was a gorgeous day with the temperature in the lower 70s. It was unusual for me but we started photographing the day at the State Capital and then we made our way over to the Monona Terrace.

I really enjoyed working with and photographing Xu (pronounced as shoe) and Enfu. She is naturally beautiful and they were both very easy to work with. Xu had shown a willingness to be adventurous in their engagement shoot so I though she would do this following shot. As I was telling her about what I wanted she was unsure, so I showed her by lifting Enfu up myself. Though Xu was skeptical about whether she could do it she made the effort, had fun and I got some great shots.

The following photographs were taken at the Allen Centennial Gardens which is a beautiful location for an outdoor wedding right in the middle of Madison. It fact for those of you unfamiliar with the Gardens it is located on the University of Wisconsin, Madison campus.

avatar About Jim

I love photography, and I've found that Madison is a beautiful city in which to shoot. The Wisconsin Capitol, State Street, Monona Terrace, Olbrich Botanical Gardens, Allen Centennial Gardens, Henry Vilas Park, and the Arboretum are just some of the many beautiful places one can go for gorgeous outdoor pictures.

I am a full-time photographer. I enjoy many kinds of photography, as you can see on this web site. In my storefront studio I offer portrait photography in a setting that allows me to control the light and backgrounds.

I work both in studio and on location to provide creative personal photography and videography for weddings, businesses, and families. James Studio offers a classic look with a creative flair!
