Chicago Symphony Center Wedding Photos
Taking wedding photos on stage at Orchestra Hall (where the Chicago Symphony Orchestra performs) was amazing! As a wedding photographer, I LOVE taking pictures at new places! The Chicago Symphony Center just inspires great wedding photography! I’m so glad Bengi + Jon took time away from their dinner to take these beautiful creative wedding pictures! Great job by Bridget from Shannon Gail Weddings to keep the day moving along smoothly!
Getting Ready at the Palmer House Hotel
Bengi + Jon got ready at the Palmer House in Chicago. In case you didn’t know…the Palmer House has gorgeous decor throughout the lobby! Here’s one of my favorites from a stairwell at the Palmer House!

I found a cool reflection for her wedding dress picture! The circular part of the mirror frames her dress perfectly!
They were so creative, their Save the Date card mimics a ticket to the Symphony Center!
Bengi looks stunning!
A great photo taken by my second photographer
The Palmer House has wonderful windows for wedding pictures!
The intricate details of the Palmer House Lobby
We headed out to Olive Park for some wedding photos! It’s a popular spot for wedding photographers, so I head to my ‘less crowded’ spot!
What a bouquet by Revel Decor!
Bridal party and the Chicago skyline photo!
Olive Park has a great view of the John Hancock building!
The Grainger Ballroom at the Chicago Symphony Center has the most amazing architectural features!
Whenever possible, I always have my 2nd photographer get the shot from behind-
One great feature of the Chicago Symphony Center is the balcony view during cocktail hour! Orchestra Hall is right on Michigan Avenue!
Their florals paired perfectly with the decor of Grainger Ballroom!

Orchestra Hall, where the Chicago Symphony Orchestra performs…what a stunning place for wedding photos!
As a photographer, it’s a risky move to turn off your flashes during the first dance, but for this photo…it just seems more romantic!
A shout out to all of their friends and family who flew in from out of town…especially from Turkey!
And the perfect way to end the night…a food truck! Empanadas from 5411 Empanadas!
Congrats again to Bengi + Jon! Thank you for having me as your wedding photographer! I’m so grateful to have clients who place such a high value on their wedding photography! We captured the most amazing creative photos in Orchestra Hall!
