We photographed this groom reading a love note from his bride on the morning of their wedding as he got ready at the Ritz Carlton in the Gold Coast neighborhood of the city.
Finding a quiet spot to set up a first look photograph can be a challenge in the city, but we love this small oasis of a park near Water Tower Place and the Ritz Carlton. The tree-lined path provides shade and symmetry for a perfect documentary photograph!
Photographing the in-between moments of a wedding day in a photojournalistic way really helps tell a complete story that will transport our clients back to the feelings and moments that passed by so quickly for them on their wedding day.

This photograph may look like a perfectly posed portrait but it happened purely organically as the bride and groom embraced after seeing each other for the first time on the morning of the wedding.
Intimate wedding portraits look more natural and real than stiffly posed stock photos.
The South Gardens of the Art Institute provides for a variety of photos with its tree-lined paths, benches, fountains, and ivy walls. It’s one of our favorite wedding photo locations in downtown Chicago as it’s one of the few places where every angle is gorgeous and we can capture all the key portraits needed during the portrait time of the day.
The south walls of the Art Institute of Chicago is a modern backdrop for photos in the city.

This is a less formal but still editorial look with the bride wearing her groom’s jacket, draped just off the shoulder.

We’ve had many brides come to us concerned that their wedding party might be too large to get nice photos of the entire group in downtown Chicago. Locations like the steps here in Grant Park make it easy for us to vary heights and frame the couple with their closes friends.
Within walking distance of the Art Institute and Grant Park, there is a beautiful skyline view at Buckingham fountain. Photographing from the lake side, there are steps that allow an upward angle with a backdrop of Chicago’s stunning architecture.
You could call this a guide to wedding photo locations in Chicago since we hit so many great spots near each other right in the heart of the city! Check out these photos to see the best spots for wedding photography in the South Loop.
Fun non traditional wedding photo inspiration - our couple took a selfie with one of the iconic Chicago backdrops at Buckingham Fountain.

We love documentary photos like this which show the behind the scenes of a wedding day as the wedding party and family line up for the ceremony which was about to begin.
