Saint Dennis Church in Madison

A week before the wedding I dropped by Saint Dennis church, where the ceremony and outdoor pictures were taken.  It is a very large, very attractive sanctuary.   There is a great deal of natural light flooding into the front of the church.  That can be tricky photographically, because the outdoor light is different than the indoor light.  This creates a conflict between the people in the front being a warmer color temperature and the background being a cooler color temperature.


This side view shows the interior lights having a yellow cast while the light coming in from the front looks different.

The stained glass windows are beautiful and provide a classic feel for this newer sanctuary.

This garden is one nice place for outdoor portraits.

The wedding party enjoyed a few pictures here.

The playground can be a fun place to take pictures of the whole wedding party.

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!
