Your photographer can also arrange the bridal party along the magnificent columns that surround and support the structure.

Here your photographer can use the stylish staircase and the balcony for a group photo or a personal portrait of the bride and groom. The lobby’s luxurious chairs and couches will work great for some relaxed, laidback photos. Have your photographer assemble the bridal party along the bar for a gentlemen’s photo or a girls-only shot. You’ll be stunned by the grandeur of Milwaukee’s most historic hotel!

Regardless of the season, the river will serve as a wonderful backdrop for your wedding photos. You’ll always remember your wedding photograph session in the beautiful urban setting of downtown Milwaukee!
For the couple that loves the outdoors, Milwaukee offers some stunning sites that will ensure a memorable wedding photography session. Start off at the Boerner Botanical Gardens, an oft-visited natural treasure that consists of five equally magnificent gardens. Stroll along the walkways of the Annual Garden as your wedding photographer captures all of the beautiful flora in the background. This garden includes a secluded little gazebo – perfect for an intimate portrait of the bride and groom. Have your wedding photographer arrange the bridal party on one of the sprawling lawns in the verdant Herb Garden. Visit the Rock Garden, which has some great photogenic backdrops, including an exotic waterfall and a tranquil pond. Your wedding photographer can also take pictures near Boerner Hall, which offers its own elegant architecture, as well as the vibrant Fragrance Garden (located behind the hall). Make sure to visit the Boerner Botanical Gardens website to learn about any fees associated with the use of the gardens.
After you’ve finished exploring the botanical gardens, have your limo driver take you to the elegant Turnaway Country Club, a Milwaukee wedding photography favorite located only a few minutes away. The club’s beautifully landscaped golf course contains countless picturesque spots for your wedding photography session. The entrance of the club house combines a charming walkway, a lush green lawn, and some colorful flower beds to create a perfect wedding portrait backdrop. The golf course, itself, is filled with numerous winding trails that are bordered by towering oak trees, as well as miniature flower gardens. The trails will also lead to a shimmering pond and fountain which your photographer can employ as a backdrop for an intimate portrait of the bride and groom (remember to keep the wedding dress and veil at a safe distance from the water!).
You will surely be impressed by both of these beautiful natural settings!
