Picture Locations in South Suburbs

Hey girls! 10 days to go!  I'm looking for a location to take pictures that has a lot of stairs, preferably pretty ones :)  I know the usual locations to take pictures in the area, but i wanted something different.  Any ideas you had would be greatly appreciated! TIA!

    Where are you calling the usual locations? I am looking for some too.  My photographer really likes the Hickory Creek Forest Preserve on LaPorte road in Mokena.  No stairs though.

    Ah, I too would be interested in this; I was just about to post this very question! :) I'm getting married in Calumet City (not from there, but our priest is a GREAT friend of our family and his church is more like a cathedral so it was a no-brainer for me) and our reception is in Mokena. NO idea where to go. I don't want to go to that Water Reclamation site on Harlem becuase I think it's been overdone in my family already. I want something beautiful and pristine! :)

    My church is actually right down the road from the Hickory Creek forest Preserve so I'm familiar with that area.  The typical ones are what Kate was saying, the Water reclamation district, lake katherine, the forest preserves.  I'm looking for something more non-naturey since i'll have plenty of nature based areas to take pictures.  My photographer did this amazing picture with the whole bridal party on these stairs and it was awesome.  so im looking for something like that.

    I highly recommend the Joliet Train Station downtown.  You can take some cool pics on the tracks and there are plenty of stairs and other fun things to work with.  And then there's the whole downtown area that is fun!

    I had pics taken at the Tinley Park train station (link to pics in married bio) - there are no stairs but lots of cool places to take photos there and the downtown area right around it
