I simply cannot say enough good things about Élan Photography! Basically, best wedding photography in Lisle, heck western suburbs and possibly all of Illinois!
We met with Bill to look over pricing and his work and just felt completely at ease. At no point during the initial and following meetings did I feel like I was a dollar sign and my wedding was a cash register.
While he did explain his prices, I had honestly no idea how much wedding photography would be. But it is worth the money since his photos capture the most wonderful aspects of your wedding day.
With our "package" we were given a complimentary engagement photo shoot-which was more fun than I could have even imagined. And I knew I was in trouble when I saw just how gorgeous those photos were-I knew the wedding pictures would be phenomenal and Bill did not disappoint!
The week before the wedding Bill called to get some information on important members of our families and get the names of our bridal party as well as answer any other questions I may have had. He was kind and helpful and reassured me that the day would go smoothly-as I'm sure any bride to be frets over!
The day of the wedding he was on time, well dressed, happy and positive-a few things I was not-only due to the nature of my anxiety was I worrying about random things a bride to be worries of. And at no point did I have to worry about our "time running out". He was ours for the day.
As a plus size woman I am very conscious of my looks and worried about flabby arms or double chins but by the end of the day I was striking a pose with such fierceness that would have Kate Moss scared. Bill did that! He made me so completely comfortable in my own skin, he was so positive and encouraging!
Needless to say the pictures Are Amazing! He captured every little thing I asked him to as well as things I didn't even think of. He is truly a professional and has honed his craft wonderfully. Don't make the mistake of Not choosing Élan Photography!

Bill was a great choice for our wedding day photographer. He took more than 1,000 pictures and almost all of them looked great. My own gripes were that he didn't follow the entire shot list I gave him (so there are some pictures I won't have) and that we couldn't do our engagement pictures in Chicago which is what I had wanted, but the quality & professionalism was top notch.

You get what you pay for in photography!! This company knows what they are doing. Bill did an outstanding job the day of our wedding. The photos are amazing and I look great LOL No, all kissing aside, this place is great. We did a lot fo shopping around for a good photographer and are so happy we spent the extra $$ and hired Bill. Worth every single penny! Some of my friend's went to big mass market studios and had the worst luck. Our photos look like magazine pix. Outstanding! THX!

We worked with Bill from Elan Photography. From the first time I spoke to Bill on the phone I knew I wanted him to be my photographer. He is pretty expensive but for me and my husband we wanted to spend more on our photographer than anything else because pictures last forever. Bill was very easy to get in contact with and he was was wonderful to work with on the day of our wedding. He was positive and upbeat and made everyone feel comfortable. He worked quickly and precisely so we didn't get bored. He was creative with his pictures and he allowed for myself and my husband to pitch in ideas for our pictures and he would go with them.
We are still in the process of working with him to get our proofs. but the experience is wonderful and I would say if you are willing to spend a little extra money on pictures Elan Photograpy (Bill) is the place to do it!

The photography was overpriced. The pictures looked untouched and shiny. It took a very long time to get my album which was included in my cost, and my mom who paid extra to buy an album and pictures for herself got hers in weeks, which shows the priority here. My photographer never met with me ahead of time which I thought was going to be the deal, to go over details. On our day she arrived in a timely manner. Later in the evening when she had taken as many pictures as was necessary she politely asked me if I wanted her to stay, and I thought she'd done enough. Half and hour later I found her at my open bar, which I thought was unprofessional. This photographer wasn't worth it, and they were the ones the Herrrington Inn recommended.

He is very professional and very organized. He is fairly priced (maybe a little high), but got the job done. He had a 3 year waiting period before we can own the negatives which were a little frustrating for the parentstry and negotiate that down to 1 year or less. Parents want pictures and the parent package he has is too small, so they end up spending hundreds of dollars more. Try to negotiate more upfront so you are not surprised.

Bill was fantastic! From our first meeting to the day of the wedding, he couldn't have been nicer to deal with.

And at the wedding, he was very organized, got all of the group shots that we had requested and was upbeat and pleasant even when the anxiety level got a little high before the ceremony. He kept everyone smiling. He also got our disc of photos to us very quickly.

Great guy and great photographer. I highly recommend.
