Gorgeous Langham Chicago Wedding Photos // Kara + Kevin

Best Langham Chicago Luxury Wedding Photos // Kara + Kevin

After a 2nd and 3rd Chicago winter these past few months, the skies opened up and the sun came out for Kara + Kevin’s Langham wedding! Kara loves everything about the Langham Hotel (one of the best in the country!!!), so we made sure to get a bunch of photos all around their venue! Be sure to scroll down to see photos in front of the Langham marquee at night!

If you haven’t already seen their engagement pictures, be sure to check them out here: Kara + Kevin’s Chicago Engagement Photos!

Everything went smoothly the whole day. Shout out to Alicia and Julissa from Clementine Events and to Davina from The Langham for planning and coordinating a flawless day!

Love the symmetry and embrace in this first photo with the Langham marquee! The pink taxi and sign are iconic to this Chicago luxury wedding venue!

I love incorporating Chicago architecture into wedding day photos. Here the Wrigley Building is in the background! It helps remind the newlyweds where they were married!

Had to take a portrait of the bride in the Langham Lobby! Photographer’s Tip: Framing and symmetry: Here Kara is in the middle with wonderful symmetry and her body is framed by the doorway in the background as well as the floor tiles on the ground!

Photographer’s Tip: Take a moment and look from a different vantage point! This photo below and the one above are taken in the exact same spot, except for my position! Two uniquely different pictures in the same spot!
