Engagement Shoot & Wedding
Sachi and team were an exceptional group of folks who lived and captured our 4-day Indian wedding. She was very engaged prior to the event to ensure that she knew what was important to us. In the moment, as the bride and groom, we are lost in the flurry and the hustle of the moment. Sachi was there to ensure we captured all of our memories so we could re-live our special weekend again and again. When you hire a photographer, you want someone that will take the time to get to know you and your special partner. By the end of it, Sachi and team became friends. I couldn’t imagine a wedding without Sachi and her team.
Sachi is an excellent photographer! Her work speaks for itself. Everyone loved the pictures she took. She did all of our wedding events including our engagement shoot. She is very punctual and friendly. She makes you feel comfortable and has great suggestions. I highly recommend hiring Sachi even if you have to fly her our for your event. She will not disappoint you!

"I'm not quite sure where to begin with Sachi, because quite honestly, she was nothing but the best. My husband and I had a big wedding and we wanted to have the same photographer for all the events to primarily ensure that all the photos were consistent in their style. Luckily enough, Sachi was available for all 7 events and that was the best blessing that we could have asked for. For each event, Sachi was not only on time, but so professional with our crazy family. With so many events, it can get a little crazy, frustrating and chaotic, but Sachi was calm and collected in EVERY instance. She would come early, stay late and make sure that she got every special moment on camera. Whenever our guests were taking photos of each other on their own cameras or phones, Sachi somehow magically appeared right by them to take photos of them on HER camera, as well. That was important to my husband and I because we wanted to make sure that our photos weren't of just US, but of our guests too, and Sachi took care of this x1000. She was so wonderful to work with, so easy and friendly and really made my husband and I feel comfortable in front of the camera. We haven't received our photos yet (understandably, considering how many wedding events we had!) but my husband and I couldn't be more happy that we had Sachi as our wedding photographer. We know for a fact that her gorgeous, stunning, absolutely beautiful photos are ones we'll cherish for our entire lives, and share with our family and friends. :)"

Engagement Shoot & Wedding
Sachi was simply put, amazing! She was patient and attentive throughout the whole process. She took our engagement pictures and they were beautiful! Our family and friends raved about the quality of her work! On our wedding day she was very flexible and worked with all the little hiccups that popped up! We are awaiting our final photos from the wedding but her preview was breathtaking! Sachi is a kind, professional and creative photographer! I have recommended her to all my friends looking for a photographer. She will be the photographer at my brother-in-law's wedding next fall because they loved watching her work with us! We can't say enough about how wonderful she is! Sachi, thank you so much for everything!

Engagement Shoot & Wedding
Sachi was just the absolute best by any standards. Going to dig into a few of the ways specifically below: - Working with Sachi: We spoke with a few great photographers but went with Sachi both because of friends' and other vendors' high praise, but also because in our interview, and ultimately in person, she was really engaged and suggested a ton of great ideas (places, poses, ways to get people comfortable, and ways to corral a huge Indian family), and always game for trying something, and always collaborative and receptive to ideas. Sachi is super punctual and professional, but also really fun and encouraging and very quickly put us at ease in the unusual situation of having photos taken of you :) She was so sweet, positive, and genuinely excited for us that it was easy to not feel nervous! Not to mention Sachi was super efficient both in shooting and processing photos. She was also great about monitoring the weather and figuring out what we could do when, and when we needed to move. - The photos!! When we took our engagement photos Sachi knew that the coolest photos would be of us standing and doing a dip in the street, and waited for the red lights, ran out into the street, set us up, and got the shots juuust right!! In Central Park, Sachi was super dynamic, climbing into the bushes to get cool shots of us through the greenery. The photos were unbelievable and stunning. I'd been really concerned about a skin issue and Sachi was really reassuring and somehow made us look better than we ever have in spite of it. - Timeline for sharing photos: When it came to sharing photos, Sachi was way, way faster than any of our friends' or relatives' photographers and turned around previews and then the full reel in just a couple weeks--I think 2 weeks from the shoot date for previews and 3 weeks from the shoot date (so one week later). This was also over a period when I know Sachi was shooting 20-some events over the course of 3 weeks. - At our wedding, Sachi continued to be awesome. She provided a lot of great ideas on the schedule and how to get all the family photos we wanted, and set everyone up in a friendly yet speedy and aesthetically pleasing way. She was flexible and super positive during a stressful time with other vendors, parents, et al. - Second photographer: She also had an fantastic second photographer Rishi who was also so friendly, great about getting everyone psyched up and smiling, and great and directing traffic and attention during family photos and accommodating iphone photos :) - Guest experience: So many of our guests came up to remark to us on the day of and after how much they liked our photographers--they were super accommodating and patient when friends asked for photos, always smiling, and would always check the photo came out ok before moving on. Thank you, thank you, thank you. What a pleasure for everybody to work with you and Rishi both. We will definitely be highly recommending you guys, and getting in touch with any other events in future!! Can't wait to work with you again!

We had an absolutely sensational experience working with Sachi. She's very talented, patient, creative and down-to-earth person. She did our Engagement Shoot and I just can't get over how amazing the photos turned out. We had SO MANY great shots from our shoot - I don't think there was a single photo we didn't love. She captured every moment in such a beautiful, natural manner. We could not have been happier with our experience and would recommend her to anybody looking for a great photographer! Sachi, thank you so much for everything!
Nikunj & Charvee
We used Sachi for our Engagement shoot along with all our wedding events. We could not be more pleased with her level of attention and dedication to our events. Not only is she prompt and professional at all times, she makes a person who does not like taking photos enjoy what they are doing! Her work speaks for itself when she can turn any background or setting into an amazing portrait. My extended family fell in love with her work after they saw our engagement shoot and they were more excited to attend the wedding when they found out she was shooting all the events from start to finish. I'm so happy I chose Sachi to capture our event's important moments. She never makes anyone pause or stop what they are doing to capture the moment. From getting ready pictures, to pictures of my wedding details to our first dance - she blends in and gets the moment as it happens. I really value that in a photographer!
50th Birthday Party
Sachi delivered all that I asked for & more! My 50th birthday was at Terrain and I wanted her to capture the rustic but elegant space. We had family that traveled to make it and we had an amazing photoshoot. She captured our group in its playful, happy and loving nature. The candids were amazing. Sachi didn't miss a beat with the surprise flash mob. She covered the event in its entirety - hugs, laughs, dancing, food, speeches - like poetry through a lens. I have become her friend and fan. I wanted a romantic touch and she delivered! She will definitely be our permanent photographer!
Sachi is my most favorite photographer. I was in need of a photographer who would understand my vision without a lot of instruction. She has a keen eye for detail and she puts herself in her clients view and never misses the significant moments. She will go through any extent to get the perfect shot needed for a creative artistic approach. She is understanding and attentive and her skills in photography has astonished me whether it was an editorial or any event. The magic and quality in her photos never disappoint and will always leave you surprised and wanting more. Sachi cares highly about her business, she personalizes it the way her client would want, she listens and she's so easy to interact with. She was there for me when I needed a photographer at the last minutes notice, even with her busy schedule...she did not let me down. Thank you Sachi, you are adored for successfully capturing such beautiful, artistic, rare and breathtaking memories in a single shot. You are truly talented in what you do. You were born to do photography!
Pooja & Arjun
Sachi is extremely friendly and easy work with. Not only is she affable and interacts very well with the guests and bridal party, she is also talented and is passionate about what she does. This leads to very high quality photos and the ability to capture precious moments.

Engagement Shoot & Engagement Party
We hired Sachi as our photographer for our engagement party in July of 2013. We could not have been more pleased! Her attention-to-detail deserves above a 5.0 rating. She was very easy to work with and flexible with our schedule. Her packages are priced very well and we were very happy with the quality of her shots. We enjoyed her work so much that we hired her again for our pre-wedding shoot just recently! We highly recommend Sachi for your next event/shoot!
Snoben & Jincy
Absolutely Phenomenal! Sachi exceeded all of our expectations for our engagement! The praise she receives for her work is well deserved and from our personal experience you won't have to worry about photography once you sign with her. Sachi was very receptive to our ideas, told us what to do for certain shots to make them even better and was never impolite or pushy through the entire process. Trust us when we say you can pay a lot or a little for a photographer but you just don't know what you are going to get. Those worries are out of the equation if you are lucky enough to book Sachi! She captured all the precious moments from our event along with certain stills we will use for our wedding, and her touch ups for the finished product made the photos look impeccable. A gifted photographer that caters to her customer, you are an absolute gem! Thank you so much Sachi! -Jincy and Snoben

Sachi Anand Photography did an amazing job photographing our wedding and capturing every special moment of the entire day. Out photos are simply gorgeous and more than I ever dreamed of. Her creativity and "eye" for unique shots seemed to align perfectly with our style. Her photographs truly enhanced our "rustic" wedding adding so much more beauty than it seemed in person! Sachi was so kind and welcoming throughout each step of the way and made our friends and family so comfortable. I would recommend her to anyone and am so grateful that I was referred to her. I will cherish our wedding pictures forever :)
Aparna & Sameer
I had Sachi take pictures for my pre-wedding events (henna celebration) and she is absolutely incredible! She is very professional and responsive and her pictures are stunning. She has an amazing creative eye and it shows in all the photos she took! All her pictures were so vibrant and she captured all the happiness that day. My only regret is not hiring her for my wedding/reception. I highly recommend Sachi for wedding photography!

Engagement Shoot & Engagement Party
Sachi was absolutely wonderful to work with!! She photographed our Engagement party and also did our engagement photos. All of our friends and family commented on how she managed to be everywhere at once! She took so many pictures that night and her work is great! She was a recommendation from one of our friends and we were so happy we went with her. She was so kind, down-to-earth, responsible, flexible, and patient. Of all the different vendors we had to deal with, Sachi was the only one that was proactive with questions about schedules and what we wanted. She was always one step ahead of us and always available when we needed her. Sachi made us feel comfortable in front of the camera at all times! On top of all that, she's just great to be around! I would recommend her to all of our friends no matter what the occasion. I am certainly going to book her for other events in the future! Thank you so much for making our event so memorable!!
Nuthyla & Mike
Sachi is an amazing photographer! We worked with her for our engagement photo shoot and our wedding (two days of celebrations!). She was very patient, kind, and flexible. She was easy to work with and she got along with all our other vendors (planner, videographer, etc.). Although we requested services for a few hours, she arrived very early and left very late. For her time, we are very grateful! Her work was incredible. She has a keen eye for detail and captured all the emotion in our special day(s). She edited the pictures in a reasonable time and her work was great quality. I highly recommend her! FYI Check out her website and facebook page - they're amazing!

Engagement Shoot & Wedding
Sachi was such a pleasure to have as our wedding photographer! We first met for an engagement shoot, and I absolutely loved both her style as well as hard working spirit! She'll literally go out of her way to make sure your pictures turn out exactly the way you imagine them, and beyond. I am so thankful for Sachi going the extra mile in coming early and staying later for my wedding, just to get some extra shots and to make sure everything was fully covered! Her attention to detail and unique eye really makes her photos, and the memories behind them invaluable.
Rachael & Jim
Sachi was wonderful! All of my guests commented on how she managed to be everywhere at once! She took so many pictures and her work is beautiful. On top of that she is kind, responsible, responsive, and creative! I will certainly use her in the future and recommend her to friends!
Bridal Photo Shoot
Sachi! I've been meaning to message you to thank you for all that you did to coach me through our photo shoot. I'm not the most graceful or elegant but you definitely captured a side of myself I didn't know existed. I loved getting sneak peaks on your camera and seeing the finished products on my computer. You transformed me into a model! Very impressive work, and I'm not the only one that thinks so, I've gotten so many compliments for your photos. You really are an inspiration in following your dreams and I'm so excited to see you and your work evolve and take off! You have such a creative eye but all the pictures still had a natural feel to them, which is not always easy to accomplish. I do admit I felt awkward in front of the camera at first, but you did a great job keeping me calm and relaxed. Thank you! Thanks for being so professional in getting the proofs to me so quickly also. I didn't even realize you took all those pics because we were having so much fun. I feel privileged to have worked with you and can't wait to work with you again! I see much more success coming your way, you just watch and see! Best wishes and much love!
Fatema & Irfan
Sachi first off, is one of the sweetest people I've ever met! She photographed my engagement party, and she went above and beyond what I expected! She took tons of pictures, and each of them are absolutely beautiful! She works hard, and makes sure her clients are happy with her pictures! Not to mention she's extremely creative! At my engagement, she made sure we got pictures of everything, from the food to the couple shots, and pictures of my family! I even plan on having her photograph my wedding, and I can't wait to work with her again!
Shirly & Jay
Sachi was great! I would highly recommend her as a photographer! Our wedding photos turned out absolutely amazing! I couldn't have asked for a better photographer to capture our special day!
Maternity & Family Photo Shoot
I had the pleasure of working with Sachi on more than one occasion, and each time she was very professional and a delight to work with. Normally, you will get a few good shots, but she has a really good eye and was able to capture a lot of really great shots. I'm having a hard time deciding which photos to display because I love so many of them. Every time that I browse through the photos I find a new favorite. I am still amazed at how many great shots that she was able to capture in such a short time. I have worked with other photographers, but she is by far my favorite. You can tell that she really loves what she does by the quality of her work. She is truly an artist, and I am proud and honored to display her work in my home.
Karina & Allister
Engagement Party & Wedding
I had the pleasure of having Sachi be the photographer for my wedding AND engagement. She flew into Chicago for both the events! Lets just start off by saying - she is amazing. She asks you want you want to do prior to the event and actually remembers (even when I couldn't because there was so much going on)! She is professional, calm, and most importantly, passionate. You can tell that she really cares about you and the final product. I had a big fat Indian wedding and she stayed until the end for all the events. I would recommend her to ANYONE! If you take a look at her website and Facebook page, you can see that she has a variety of indoor and outdoor pictures along with events such as weddings and baby photos. Thank you Sachi!!!!!
Shawn & Jiby
We knew Sachi Anand was going to be great when we sough after her. She blew us away with her work. Her product she produced exceeded our expectations by a 100 miles! We loved every single picture! They were really stunning. The angling and the background and the post production coloring on the pictures were stunning...they are remarkable! Sachi definitely has the eye and that magic touch! This is better than some of the high end stuff I've seen! I would recommend Sachi in a heartbeat!
Siddh & Sarah
I would like to Thank Sachi for taking amazing candid photos while the proposal was going on. She was hiding behind a large bush so you could imagine how difficult it could be to get the perfect pictures. But the pictures she captured are the best pictures we have ever seen. She's simply the best in the industry in our opinion.
Harmonie & Patrick
Sachi was such a pleasure to work with on our July 20th, 2013! We are still waiting for our final photos but the previews she provided us with are just breath taking! Sachi was extremely professional, creative and made sure we took a picture with every guest. She was very creative and funny during our portrait pictures. I totally recommend her. Her passion definitly makes all the difference. I am just so glad I found her to capture our dream day!
I just hosted my sister's baby shower this weekend and booked Sachi for the event. I was thrilled with Sachi's services. She was extremely professional, patient and willing to accommodate my requests. I would highly recommend that you book her for your next event.
I really enjoy meeting new people and working with such a diverse group of clients! It means a lot to me when someone chooses me to be the one to capture and to document the story of moments that will be looked back at for generations to come. I am thankful to have been a part of your special day! I appreciate and welcome any feed back about your experience working with me! - Sachi
