Wedding Photos at the Waldorf Chicago

The Waldorf Astoria Chicago lobby makes for the perfect backdrop for their wedding pictures! I also love how the Christmas tree gives this lobby a sense of time and place. After all, it’s a New Years Eve wedding!

This was one of my favorites from the day. Photographer’s Tip: step back and ‘see your surroundings’

Tears were shed in the background! Theresa had no idea how her bridesmaids were reacting to their wedding ceremony. As a wedding photographer, I love capturing these moments that the bride and groom never ‘saw’ on their wedding day!
