chicago wedding photographer | rachel + matt hyatt lodge

chicagoweddingphotographer_ellerosephoto_mr-64 Where to begin with Rachel + Matt… these two are winter photo taking pros for one. From their engagement session in the snow + wind, to an overcast Chicago Winter wedding in January that ended in the fluffiest snowflakes possible – these two just rocked it all like they were standing in a sunbeam together : ) And that made me really happy because you could just tell that they were so thrilled to be right there, right then, with each other sharing their vows. Which I think is a really excellent place to be on your wedding day!! They were surrounded by a bridal party that was so full of life, and just so excited to be there celebrating them. What photographer wouldn;t love to capture that kind of energy?! Plus the details – oooooh the details! Rachel has an eye that just ooooozed classic Hollywood glamour meets winter perfection, and getting to see her vision come together and capture it all was the best! Okay enough out of me — time for you to fall in love with these two like I did : )
