Mari + Matthew’s Wedding Photos!

Hyatt Regency Chicago Wedding Photos

Mari + Matthew’s Hyatt Regency Chicago wedding photos! The Hyatt Regency Chicago is located in the heart of Chicago, just off Michigan Ave! Matthew is an amateur photographer, and he appreciates by ability to include Chicago architecture into my wedding photos- like this photo with the Wrigley building in the background-

Nothing says Chicago like a stroll on Michigan Avenue with the Wrigley building and the Tribune Tower in the background-

It’s funny how you just know when the person is the right person. For Matthew + Mari, it was when they were out on a ‘date’ taking photos of Chicago trains at night. Something about that moment…waiting for the perfect photo…the right composition, the right spot, the photographer and his companion…they knew the rest was history =)

It’s always great working with a great team, and that starts with a great planner! Great job Jan!
