3 Best Chicago Wedding Photographer Locations // Rooftop

Best Chicago Wedding Photographer Locations // Nicole + Drew

Nicole + Drew held their COVID microwedding at the Radisson Blu a couple weeks ago, and though it was a wonderful celebration, we didn’t get to take that many wedding photos! After their amazing Chicago Engagement Session Photoshoot at Night…we all wanted more pictures! So we planned a post-wedding shoot at epic locations to get the best Chicago wedding photos! If you like what you see here, be sure to follow me on Facebook and Instagram to see more photos there!

As we were brainstorming for location ideas, I casually mentioned to Nicole…that a rooftop would be amazing if we could get access to one! As Chicago wedding photographer for the past 13years, some of my best Chicago wedding photos have come on various rooftops throughout the city!

These first three pictures are some of their best Chicago wedding photos from the day! Be sure to scroll down to see all 25+ photos!

Photographer’s Tip: Use a shallow depth of field to make your clients ‘pop’ in front of the blurry background!

Sometimes it’s those in between moments when there is a gust of wind that catches your veil and hair for a spontaneous moment!

Photographer’s Tip: Love the vertical lines and the architecture in these Wrigley Building wedding photos. The strong lines are balanced with the flowing nature of her veil! Their pose…standing apart mirrors the pillars in the background, yet they are connected through their hands!

Best Chicago Wedding Photographer Locations: A Rooftop!

Chicago rooftop wedding venues are quite popular right now (think COVID). Not just because they are outside, but because of the view!

I have photographed over a dozen rooftops in Chicago, so I came prepared to maximize this location for their Chicago rooftop wedding photos! I LOVE that you can see the horizon behind the buildings – makes us feel on top of the city!
