If you're looking for a softer skyline scene, consider a visit to the Lurie Garden. This lush, green garden is tucked inside Chicago's Millennium Park and conveniently offers a natural landscape in the heart of the bustling city. Due to its close proximity to many downtown attractions and venues, the Lurie Garden is a popular location for wedding photography and engagement photo sessions. Landscape photographers appreciate this location for the interesting contrast of sharp skyscrapers against the garden's signature flowy prairie grasses. Think it would be fun to color-coordinate with the background? Interestingly enough, the garden's official website has a map to show you where to view plants by color. Therefore, folks that would like to capture photos among a particular shade will know exactly where to head when visiting the park.
