A New Event Venue In Cleveland
I had the opportunity to a wedding stylized (or set up) photo session at the Madison in Cleveland. I participated in The Beloved Ohio bridal show there and was given a chance to do photographs. The Madison is a new wedding reception and event venue in downtown Cleveland. A restored warehouse, this is a reception facility is for the bride and groom who might be looking to have a more unconventional wedding celebration.
A New, Unique Wedding Venue
I was excited to do a photo session in The Madison. An open, industrial space with a ton of great natural light, I wanted to see what could be accomplished. At the time that I did the wedding detail pictures, there was fantastic beams of sunlight hitting the perfect spots. I HAD to use it. These are not your typical wedding detail pictures but that is why I love them. Different and unique. Or, at least as much as I could make them. A bit more dramatic and with more contrast than what is trendy, but that’s my style.
There were a lot of challenges. People setting up for the bridal show that would be happening the next day was the biggest. I also had to shoot side by side and in tandem with another photographer, the wonderful Valerie Gage, of I Heart Life Photography. She is fantastic, but two photographers with two drastically different photography styles with a very limited time to take advantage of the space will limit the scope of what you are going to be capable to accomplish.. I want to thank Valerie for being so accommodating and easy to work with in such hectic and challenging situation. Our models, Savanna and Scott were fantastic. So much so that I used them for a photo session at House of Blues Cleveland.
Here are some of the images that I created at the Madison Cleveland. I have more of our wedding models, Savanna and Scott that I will be posting in the near future.
