Sioux City Summer Fest 2017 - Sioux City, Iowa
So last year when the Summer Fest carnival came to town, I was out on an engagement shoot. After I finished with the couple, I decided to stop over by the Tyson Event Center to see if I could get a few cool photos of the carnival. I was in the area, so I figured why not. That photo shoot resulted in this photo.
It got a lot of love on Facebook. In fact, I am positive that photo received more "Likes" than any other photo I've ever posted. Yay! Totally worth stopping and shooting! As a result, I got hooked up with the awesome Kevin Wolff over at iHeartRadio and he asked me to partner up with him and do it again this year!
It's a bit of pressure to try to replicate the success one photo had a year ago, so instead of trying for ONE great photo, I've spent the last four days trying to capture a bit of the excitement from the whole event (in between shooting weddings and trying to pack my house for an upcoming move date!)
I think the carnival so far has been a huge success! Lots of people have been down there and everybody seems to be having a great time! Today was a blast! They offered free rides for one hour and 7 minutes between 4:00 and 5:07. The place was packed with people and excitement! They had a stilt walker, a clown, a fire manipulator/juggler, live DJ playing music, so much food (have I mentioned Funnel Cake yet) and lots of free rides! If you haven't been down there yet, I encourage you to check it out. We have a lot of carnivals in town during the summer, but this is by far the best one in my opinion. It's a great way to get out of the house and have some fun with your family!
That said, enough talking! Here are some of my favorite photos from the last 4 days! Oh and since you're over here - if you're looking to get married or know someone who is, check out my site. My wife and I work together and love getting to work with couples to capture their big day! We'd love to work with you too! Contact info is below if you're interested. Thanks!
