The Loop – Chicago Photo Location

The loop is Chicago’s business district and has so many amazing urban backgrounds for your engagement and wedding photos including the CTA elevated trains (or better called the L trains short for “elevated”), grunge ally ways, street art, and famous locations like the Chicago Theater!

My Favorite Photo Locations in the Loop

The L Trains

Whenever I see the elevated metal trains in movies I immediately know it’s based in Chicago! The L trains are a symbol of Chicago’s innovative spirit and make for such fun urban engagement and wedding photos!

Wabash Arts Corridor

The Wabash Arts Corridor was founded by Columbia College Chicago and is the city’s living canvas! The murals are painted on reclaimed public spaces by Columbia College staff members and many local businesses. The corridor is one of the largest street art and public art collections of women artists and artists of color. These murals are a perfect backdrop for the edgy, artsy, urban couples for their wedding or engagement photos!

Hero Coffee Bar

This coffee shop is tucked away down an alley on Jackson Blvd. Many Chicago locals don’t even know about this cute little coffee shop! Hero Coffee Bar decorated the alley with warm yellow string lights and a big COFFEE sign so this is the perfect photo location for the coffee addicts!

Chicago Theater

This is a no brainer! This landmark is one of the oldest theaters in the city. The Chicago Theater‘s “Chicago” sign is a famous photo destination! The theater is located on North State Street.
