I don’t know if it was Megha’s beauty and her sparkling laughter that first caught Cameron’s eye, or if it was her incredible balance between a fierce determination and extraordinary kindness. And it’s hard to say whether it was the way Cameron could always make her laugh or if it was his genuineness and honesty that initially drew Megha to him. But when they began studying together virtually every day, it didn’t take long for the two to realize these were only a few among the many qualities they valued in one another. They decided to move their dates beyond the library walls, and soon Megha was being schooled in the ways of beer pong while Cameron was broadening his palate to include Indian and Thai cuisine. That summer their relationship stood through the test of Cameron’s long hours at his new job. He said he’ll never forget the day Megha was helping him move out of his old apartment, and his buddy looked over at him and said, “Cameron, she’s a keeper.” He knew he had truly found a special connection in Megha. Six years later Cameron asked Megha’s father for his blessing, and that same weekend she said yes.
It only takes a few minutes with them to see how strong their adoration for one another is. Coming from two entirely different backgrounds has only served to strengthen their devotion, and it was moving to see their two families embrace one another wholeheartedly. Megha and Cameron exchanged their sacred vows in a beautiful Hindu ceremony among their family members here in Chicago. Their wedding was decked in luxurious shades of red and gold and the elaborate details I so love to photograph! It has seriously been one of my favorite weddings to date.
I’m grateful to have had Jaclyn Simpson shooting with me once again. She was a blast to work with and came away with some incredible shots like the one below.
Megha, of course, looked stunning. While she is an obvious beauty as she gazing at you directly, my favorite image of her is when I caught her off guard, all the way to the right.
Cameron looked equally as handsome and distinguished.
Megha and Cameron, thank you for inviting me to be a part of your day, and even more, into your lives. I am so thankful to know you both. Sending you much love!! xo
