Chicago Wedding Photography Advice
Make the Most of Your Chicago Wedding Photography
Having a wedding in Chicago? Take advantage of the gorgeous sights and scenery when arranging your Chicago wedding photography. You have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to capture stunning, museum-quality wedding photos.
When booking your wedding photographer or working with your Chicago wedding planner, ask about having some shots done at picaresque locations. If you’re hiring a limo for your wedding party, it’s easy to stop by special photography locations for half an hour to get great shots. If necessary, drive by and scope out locations on your own before booking. You can also ask your photographer for suggestions from his or her previous wedding photography experience.
While the downtown waterfront and skyline are popular locations, don’t forget the beautiful gardens and summery rural locations within driving distance. During deep winter, your options may be more limited. On clear and sunny days, the lakeshore looks absolutely stunning. Try shore-side barefoot shots for a romantic look.
Are you an edgy bride? Scout out urban locations for a beautiful contrast between your dress and the stark beauty of Chicago. Try a romantic shot with colorful graffiti in the background or a black-and-white portrait against a brick façade. Get creative with the beautiful backdrop of the Windy City.
