A Weekend with Sachin & Family

When Sachin offered to second shoot a Chicago wedding with me, like the Californians would say; I was stoked. This guy is so good and I was honored that he would want to shoot alongside me.

Anyway, he stayed with us for 4 days. We shot a rehearsal dinner the first day, shot a 15 hour wedding the next day, chilled out the third day, and took an adventure into downtown Chicago on the last day. What I loved about him was that we never asked him to take any photos of my kids or family and yet he felt constantly inspired to do so. I’ve already seen a few images that he took and I am CRAZY EXCITED with what I’ve seen so far and can’t wait for him to blog them.

For now, here are my own personal favorites I took from our trip into downtown Chicago with Alin, myself, the kids, Sachin, Alin’s parents and his cousin Denisa.

Enjoy.

    In love with these photos and your family. So many awesome captures and I rarely have pictures of myself from the places I visit. My mum will be happy! haha
    Hope we get to hang out again soon :)
