A few places in Chicago will require permits. A lot our clients love the Chicago Park District locations so that is always a good place to start. These would include the Garfield and Lincoln Park Conservatories, Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool, Lincoln Park Zoo, Olive Park and a few other locations. We suggest that you check with us to see if your favorite locations require a permit. It is definitely worth getting one if you are in love with the scenery. The Alfred Caldwell Lily Pool will put the permit fee into restoring and maintaining the space. It’s a great way to keep the city green and beautiful while getting the images you’ve always dreamed of for your wedding album!
