PROM 2023: Top Locations for Stunning Photos In and Around Rockford
You've crossed everything off the 'Prom To-Do List' but one thing, where to take pictures. Save some time and check out this list of great spots.
What Makes a Great Spot for Taking Prom Photos
If late-April weather wasn't so unpredictable around here, finding a great spot for a prom photo session wouldn't be such a tough task.
You want to take some outside shots, but some places just don't look that great when it's soaking wet outside., and with limited sunshine. The list we have here includes spots that look pretty good no matter the weather, and some indoor options if it starts to rain.
It's always a good idea to check with any other indoor places to make sure they're still cool with you coming inside to take pictures.

Klehm is the largest public garden in Winnebago County and is another perfect 'open to the public' spot for photos.

Sure, it's fall in this next one, but imagine how much prettier it is in the spring.
