Hyatt Regency Chicago Luxury Wedding Photos // Dana + Jay!

Best Chicago Luxury Wedding Photos From Hyatt Regency Chicago 

It hasn’t even been a week yet, but I’m posting Dana + Jay’s wedding photos on the blog! I met Dana + Jay back in 2014 when I was the wedding photographer for Dayna + Todd’s Chicago wedding! I would then see them again at Phil + Maggie’s wedding and in California for Amy + Tomer! You can look online for reviews on photographers, but the greatest compliment I receive is when a couple refers me to their friends – so thank you guys!

I posted a few wedding teaser photos earlier this week, and Dana left this note on my Nakai Photography Instagram!

Kenny you are the best in the biz. It’s as simple as that!!! If this is an preview of what is to come, I really can’t even wait!!!! Thank you for capturing our special day!!!!

So be sure to scroll down to see more photos from their gorgeous wedding day!  In case you missed it: Dana + Jay’s stunning Chicago engagement session photos, be sure to check those out too!

Photographer’s Tip: Looking for a sense of time and place. Sometimes you get lucky with the clock tower (time) on the Wrigley Building (place – downtown Chicago)!
