Chicago Photoshoot Locations

Event photography is essential to capture your special night, whether it’s a wedding or quinceanera – it’s vital to have those memories to treasure for years to come! We sat down with one of our favorite photographers to pick his brain about the best Chicago photoshoot locations, and other insider information!

Chicago Photoshoot Locations | The Details

We had the chance to chat with Philip Jacob of JZ Studio Photography in Chicago — and we’re glad we did! He gave us the insider scoop to all things Chicago photography.

Time Of Year | Seasons Change

The time of year has an impact on your event, and your pictures as well. “As a Chicago based photographer, I am blessed with 4 seasons in a year. The scenery looks unique at different times of the year. The changing seasons mean the conditions may vary dramatically from one period to the next. Snowfall in winter makes way for spring flowers and lush green vegetation in the summer, which can have a significant effect on the look and feel of your image.”
Make sure you are prepared for the weather, whatever it may be, as some photoshoots last over an hour. Check out our article on how to find a photographer for your photoshoot, and you’ll be a pro muse in no time!
