Area Specialization

In order to serve as best as possible, I only cater to a specific area.  This allows me to be familiar with the local venues, venders, and area so that I can coordinate and help you plan your special day.  By focusing on northern Illinois, I can provide a few suggestions on the best scenic places to take photography.  Or recommend DJs, caterers, coordinators, and venues that I have experience myself that work well together, reliable, and provide exceptional value.

The area of focus is West of 290/355, which is all towns DuPage, DeKalb, Kane, and western Cook County suburbs.  No Chicago.  Popular towns are:

  • Naperville
  • Wheaton
  • Geneva
  • Elgin
  • Elburn
  • St. Charles
  • Batavia
  • Sycamore
  • Aurora
  • Sugar Grove
  • Oswego
  • Yorkville
