I am so happy with the job Matt did at our wedding! We threw a few challenges his way and he handled every single one with aplomb, and made us look really good, to boot!
The first challenge was getting all our schedules sorted. My husband and I work odd hours, well outside normal 9-5, so meeting up with Matt and getting him to meet our coordinator and see the main space and the outdoor photo areas took a little wrangling. He made it work, no problem. He also scouted the outdoor location on his own time when we couldn't meet up. He was so easy to work with, bless him. He was so easy to work with.
On the day of the wedding, he made it to our outdoor photo shoot location early, which was great. Unfortunately *we* were running behind, and we ruined our chance at photos in Humboldt Park's lovely gardens by showing up minutes before a freak torrential downpour. Didn't matter; Matt had us take photos in the cover of the boathouse, and the photos are gorgeous. I don't even miss the garden photos because the boathouse pics have such great drama and framing.
The indoor ceremony and reception were held in one place (Revolution Brewing) so Matt shot us in waning indoor summer light, soft candle light, and the harsh glare of the florescent lights in the brewery. All came out great, even with our diverse wedding party--several shades of black, Asian, Hawaiian, and white. It's actually not easy to get good color balance in shots with that breadth of skin tones. He did an amazing job.
And he was just fun to work with. Good sense of humor, easy-going, but always professional. Overall a great experience. I would highly recommend him.
