The Best Hilton Chicago Luxury Wedding Photos From Raquel + Robert’s Day
There are so many buildings in Chicago that simply take your breath away. The Hilton Chicago on South Michigan Avenue is a prime example. Their grand ballroom looks like something out of a fairy tale and their luxurious Conrad Suite is something out of a movie. As their wedding photographer, I was so thankful they wanted to take photos all over the Hilton!
The bride and groom made sure include plenty of time for their wedding photos! We were able to stop by Olive Park for a photo with the Chicago skyline, the South Garden of the Art Institute, State Street with the Chicago Theater Marquee Sign, and we finished it off at the Hilton!
Be sure to scroll through all 60+ images from Raquel + Robert’s wedding! If you missed them, be sure to check out the pictures from Raquel + Robert’s Riverwalk + Lincoln Park Engagement Session! Lastly, a shout out to Erik from the Hilton and Tiffany from Liven It Up Events for running a smooth show! Also to Andie (makeup), Livia (hair) and Keith (video), I love working with my ‘friendors’!

Best of the Best
It’s hard to narrow down the best photos from the day, but these first four photos are up there! I love the modern luxury feel of the Conrad Suite. The black and white treatment fits the photo!
Just a little dip in the Grand Ballroom before the guests walk in!
As a wedding photographer, I bring a modern fashion approach to picture taking time of the day. When possible, I love to create a Vanity Fair style photo for the bridal party!
