Indian Wedding Photos at Loews Chicago Hotel – Hindu Ceremony
Smita + Tushar had their Indian wedding ceremony on the rooftop of the Chicago Loews Hotel! (Rooftop or terrace? Either way it’s amazing!) Since there are so many awesome photos from this one day, I am breaking it up into two blog posts! Be sure to come back in a couple days to see their wedding reception photos at Morgan Manufacturing!
Shout out to Sabrina + Sonam from Sabrina Hans Events for a flawless day and Kehoe Designs for creating the prefect ambiance for everything!
As a wedding photographer, you can’t ask for better weather with a rooftop ceremony!
Photographer’s Tip: Look for contrasting colors and throw a reflection in there for an extra bonus!
Love the symmetry and the unique view of the NBC tower from the Chicago Loews Hotel terrace!

Custom hangers – for the bride, her mom and sister!
Special moment with their father-
A gorgeous portrait of the bride!
Looks like an advertisement out of a magazine!
One of the most fun parts of a Hindu wedding is the Baraat- the grooms procession to the ceremony!
The bride is supposed to watch her groom dancing and walking up to the ceremony, and we were able to catch this moment from the 2nd floor! Indian weddings typically require at least two photographers…I was with Smita and my associate photographer, Tom, was down there capturing all the moments!

One of my favorite moments to capture in an Indian wedding is when the groom is hiding behind a drape so they can’t see each other. Photographer’s Tip: Take a calculated risk. I chose to stand behind the groom and wait for this shot of the bride walking down the aisle while also seeing the groom’s face. The aisle was long and I knew I would have enough time to come up to the front and capture additional photos of the bride and her father.
My associate photographer captured this moment where Tushar STOLE a look! =) I also love seeing Smite’s mom look down with joy-
There are so many photogenic Hindu wedding ceremony moments!
One last photo of the wedding party before they changed outfits for the reception!
