Chicago Indian Wedding Photos!
It was a beautiful day for Tonia + Thomas’ wedding! I want to give a shout out thank you to my previous clients Jason + Deepa for referring me to Tonia + Tom! I really appreciate how the Indian community in Chicago has continued to refer me such wonderful people these last 6 years! And in case you missed their engagement photos – be sure to see their Chicago engagement session blog post!
Before we start with getting ready photos of the blog, here’s one of my favorites from T+T’s wedding!
We started Tonia’s getting ready photos at her parents house. Here I found a cool reflection of a mirror and was able to capture Tonia with her father down the hall!

The bride’s jewelry!
Getting her veil pinned on by one of her bridesmaids!
Tonia looked so amazing! I love the feel of this photo shooting through her veil-
The infinity bracelet that her groom gave to her on the wedding day! From Tiffany’s of course! =)
The gorgeous bride!
One more photo of Tonia!
They had a family prayer time at the house- I was able to capture this emotional moment from her mom-
Meanwhile – at the groom’s house getting ready-
They also had a time of prayer-

The necklace that the groom ties around the bride – an Indian wedding tradition

I love all that is happening in this photo-
An Indian Christian wedding tradition-

The priest blessing them as they hold hands with a sari over her head. Such an important photo for an Indian Christian wedding ceremony!

A photo of the newlyweds!
I loved how clean + modern this steel wall contrasted with the colors + beauty of the wedding party!
And a couple photos of just the B+G!
I love the sun flare peaking through around them-
We found a cool alley to take some photos in!
The groomsmen and their superhero shirts!
You know who her hero is!
A photo of their wedding cake!
Running down the tunnel of their bridal party!
Another Indian tradition of the mothers serving the newlyweds milk. Another important Indian wedding photo! =)
The MC’s drummin it up!
They led the B&G in a fun little trivia game- Gotta love the bride’s “I got it right” face!
And then there was a dance performance! Tonia got up and showed off her moves!
Tom led the group with his own moves!
One last wedding pic of the B+G on the dance floor – gotta love the photobomber!
Thanks to Tonia + Thomas for having me as your wedding photographer! It was a wonderful celebration and I am thankful to have been apart of it all! May you continue to keep Christ as the center of your marriage as you grow together as one!
