We love what couples are saying about us!
Stop looking any further for a wedding photographer and book Matt Haas Photographer immediately!!! Words cannot express how amazing they are, and how much perfection and joy they will bring to your wedding.
By way of a brief background, my husband and I got married in September 2013. We met Matt and Sarah in March 2013, and within minutes clicked. I cannot emphasize how important it is to get along well with your wedding photographer and click with them. What most couples don't realize is that you will be spending a ton of time with your photographers on the wedding day, so make sure you feel comfortable and at ease with whoever you pick. Great photography skills is not enough. Matt and Sarah really had us locked from the moment we met. Of course, their portfolio was top notch, which also helped. What we LOVED about their work is that their wedding albums really told a story and weren't the typical boring wedding portraits that one usually sees. Matt and Sarah are documentary photographers and what is so fantastic about their work is that each portfolio tells a unique story. Go to their website to see what I mean---their artistic flavor is so spectacular and really belongs in an art gallery.
Matt and Sarah's wedding packages are also extremely reasonable. Our package included an engagement session, which I encourage everyone to sign up for who hires Matt Haas Photographer as their wedding photographer. My husband hates taking pictures. It is usually a fight to get him to smile. I don't know what Matt's trick is, but our engagement session really sped by and my husband (fiancé at the time) was loving every minute of it. The engagement pictures (all documentary style) turned out above and beyond amazing. To this day, my mother claims she cries when she saw them. They really were perfection and made me extremely excited for my wedding day.
And finally, the day of the wedding arrived. I have been procrastinating writing this review, because of the difficulty in summarizing how thankful I am to Matt and Sarah. Long story short, my wedding planner, it turned out, was inexperienced and not someone I would recommend to any future couple. Because she was not very helpful on the actual wedding day (and even quit our wedding 2 hours early!!!!), Matt and Sarah in essence took over as wedding planners! To this day, my husband and I still joke about how an amazing of a job Matt did as our "impromptu planner" when he took charge. Matt and Sarah really stepped up and took over, and hid from all of the wedding guests what our planner had failed to do. That, ladies and gentlemen, is who Matt and Sarah are- they really are such wonderful people who are not your typical photographers. It all goes back to their personalities, which I highlighted at the beginning of this review.
And of course, the wedding pictures turned out magnificent. Matt Haas Photography's editing and use of colors and overall documentary style made everyone- from my husband- to my family- to my friends- fall in love with the work. Signs you know you hired the best photographer: when you visit a friend and she has a picture on her fridge of a picture Matt took from the wedding.
I encourage everyone to hire Matt and Sarah. I can assure you that my husband and I will be hiring them for future occasions!
PS, If I could give Matt Haas Photography 10 stars, I would.

From our first meet up in Chicago to chat, to our engagement session, to our wedding day - Matt & Sarah have been a pleasure to work with! They captured every special moment between my husband and I - they are amazingly talented & you will be completely satisfied & outrageously thrilled with your photographs - They really make you look good!
Matt & Sarah are pure talent and a total delight to work with, you can't pick a better photographer! They are the perfect mix of professionalism, talent and personality - their photojournalist style is killer.
I have never wrote a review on yelp - but I just had to for them, because I want everyone to use their talent!

Matt and Sarah are an extremely talented duo. From the moment I met them I immediately had a sense of comfort and ease. Their calm attentive demeanor makes it very easy to work with them. Matt & Sarah both took such effort to get to know us as couple. On our wedding day, I was amazed when Sarah recalled several personal details about our relationship (details I mentioned to her at our first meeting eight months prior to our wedding). This spoke volumes to me and was complete proof how much personalization and care they put into their clients. Our pictures are above and beyond beautiful. They captured every heart felt moment of our day. The pictures are so true to the day that I feel like I re-live our wedding day every time I view the photos. Any couple would be truly honored to have Matt & Sarah shoot their wedding.

Matt and Sarah were amazing photographers. Not only were they super friendly and helpful, but they were excellent listeners. They photographed everything I wanted. Also, during the family portraits, they were really wonderful at keeping me calm and managing the day. During both the ceremony and reception they were practically invisible, but took stunning photographs! I recommend them to everyone. Perfect for people who want an artsy edge to their photos!

I ran into some last minute major problems with photography at my wedding. Our photographer backed out with just under two weeks and was a bit rude about it. We were lucky enough that she pointed to us Matt Haas! What a breath of fresh air! His work is amazing! His demeanor is comforting. He makes picture-taking-time fun. He's beyond easy to work with and sees the vision you see. What started out as a nightmare situation ended up as a miracle. We can't imagine having had anyone else as our photographer. His talent, know-how, and personality make him unmatched in his profession.

I could not have asked for better photographers!! Matt and Sarah are so laid back and wonderful to work with and the pictures are FANTASTIC!! I couldn't possibly say enough fabulous things about them to do them justice! I felt very blessed to have found them for our big day :)
Sam & Riad
Matt & Sarah were absolutely fantastic. From when we sat down at our initial meeting, my husband and I immediately knew that we wanted them to photograph our special day. Their easy-going nature and professionalism made it easy to invite them into those most intimate moments of love on our wedding day. We also received our photos promptly after the wedding and are excited to have them as a keepsake. Thanks, Matt & Sarah! You rock!

Matt Haas Photography was wonderful. We didn't want the typical posed photographs and we got so much more than we ever could have expected! They were soooo easy to work with and great people to have around! They do such a fantastic job of blending into the event so you don't realize they are there. When we received the preview of our pictures our mouths dropped....absolutely amazing.
