Working with Randy was such a great experience. We are getting married in Cincinnati next fall, but both my fiancé and I live in Chicago. Since we met and live here, we really wanted to take our engagement photos here. Randy was so flexible and easy to work with. He even let us take some pictures with our dog who is not the easiest to photograph. Randy made the whole experience easy and painless. We decided to have our pictures taken in Lincoln Park and he made sure we took pictures in all different places. Even after our photograph session, Randy was quick in getting us our pictures. We loved them so much!! He was worth every penny and would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Randy was AMAZING to work with. He was very personable, warm, down to earth and energetic. My Husband and I both feel lucky we met him! We got together several times before the wedding , and he was incredibly helpful in helping us figure out what what we needed for our event and how they would fit in. When our wedding day rolled around, it was one aspect of the event we could feel really comfortable with knowing our photography (and our memories) were in such capable hands. Randy brought a different eye and different perspective to the photography, and it was great having. We knew that everything was covered and not just from one perspective! During the ceremony, he blended in effortlessly and we didn't even notice he were there. Afterwards, he did a great job capturing the events of the day, and not just from the sidelines... Randy was right there in the thick of it on the dance floor! You can tell he really loves what he does, and thats great to see. We love the photos and the memories he helped us preserve. We are still getting tons of rave reviews about the photography, and it was easy to share the images after the event. His style really worked with our vision, and the photos show the energy, passion and creativity he brought to our wedding. Couldn't be happier! HE IS AMAZING!!

We worked with Randy and he was amazing! Throughout all our photos, my entire wedding party was saying how amazing he was! He's the type of photographer to lay in a puddle if it will get him a great shot of your wedding. For us, he was climbing down an embankment with lots of overgrown weeds. We had him travel to Peoria, IL and even with the travel fee, he was still below budget and cheaper than Peoria, IL photographers. He's incredibly upbeat and great to work with.

From the very first sit down with Rado we know we wanted to work with him for this special time. When we met at his offices to discuss he couldn't have been more friendly and professional. We were shown examples of his previous work as well as the wedding albums he would create if we chose that package; all the examples were beautiful.

We decided that night during the meeting that we wanted to work with Rado and his team. Our package included engagement photos that we took downtown one afternoon/evening. Rado already had amazing locations picked out that he took us to throughout the city to snap some great shots of us in the city. The pictures were developed and delivered quickly and we couldn't have been more impressed, Rado did a great job capturing the grandness of the city while keeping it personal.

The weeks before the wedding was when we were really thankful we booked with Rado. Those crazy weeks were a little less stressful with the help of Rado and his team. We were given a detailed schedule of the wedding day which eased our anxiety even more.

The day of the wedding was a breeze. Rado met with me and my bridesmaids early AM at the salon while one of his additional photographers met with my fiance and his groomsmen where they were getting ready. From then on it was such a pleasure working with both of them. We didn't even know they were there at times, allowing for personal moments between family members, friends, bridal party, etc. but at the same time capturing those moments for us to cherish forever. The actual ceremony was photographed amazingly. We were married outside with beautiful fall colors behind us that Rado incorporated to every picture, taking advantage of the colors and setting sun. I wish I could say more but the limit won't let me! It was such a joy working with Rado and his team and if we did it all again we wouldn't change a thing, thank you Rado!!

Randy and Gigi were amazing! From initial contact, Randy was responsive, excited and passionate about photography. He is truly amazing and we couldn't have asked for a better experience and the photos are perfect. He takes time to meet with you in person to talk about all the details and wish list for your wedding day. He really cares about the bride and groom and wants the best photography possible. He has great ideas and the photos come out perfectly. I would hire Crane's a thousand more times!! Amazing work and detail.

Where do I even begin - RADO is AMAZING! We did our engagement photos with him and the wedding day - we just got married this last Friday, but he sent me sneak peeks of the wedding and they are incredible photos! Rado was with us the entire day and made me feel super comfortable from the getting ready photos to the last few on the dance floor at 11pm! He brought his assistant who was equally incredible to work with the groom and groomsmen during the time the I was getting ready with my bridesmaids. Both Rado and his assistant were professional, punctual, and got every photo I had dreamed of and more. I didn't even have to ask him for certain photos he already knew.

Judging from our engagement photos - which were stunning, I am super anxious to get our wedding photos back because I know they will be even better. Can't wait to re-live that whole day!

Thanks - Rado!!!!

I recently had my wedding at Promontory Point in September this year but I booked Randy 1.5 years before my wedding because I knew after doing my research and meeting up with several photographers that not only is he talented but also super friendly, flexible and has great ideas. I can't tell you how happy I am with Randy's excellent photography work.I absolutely love my wedding photos!! Everyone commented on how beautiful my pictures came out. Randy captured my wedding with a mixture of candid, formal, and just gorgeous scenic pictures with my wedding party. Even though it rained on and off I still had 1200+ pictures. I highly recommend Crane's Photography as their work is just excellent.
