The Madison Hotel is a stunning wedding venue located in Morristown, New Jersey. It is such a gorgeous and unique place to get married with all of its marvelous interiors and overall elegance and exquisite style!
We took this photograph at one of the weddings we had an honor to photograph at the Madison Hotel. Both bride and groom were getting ready at the hotel's suites and had their first look shorty afterwards on the hotel grounds. The bride had planned to have their portraits taken at the Old Abbey down the street, but before heading there, we wanted to have some indoor photographs to be done before the guests start arriving for the ceremony. We had less that ten minutes left, so all the photo decisions had to be made quickly. The bright yellow chandeliers in one of the hallways created some beautiful ambience and served as great compositional background elements. We exposed for the light coming from the chandeliers and used one off camera flash, directed at the couple to the camera's left. We took a whole series of photos from this scene from slightly different angles and perspectives. I particularly loved this photograph as it genuinely represents how the bride and groom feel about each other, their happiness and love.
