Andrew photographed my wedding at a rooftop at Wrigley Field just a few weeks ago. I just received my pictures and they are fantastic! What I enjoyed about working with Andrew was that he was very responsive to my emails and phone calls, willing to listen to my ideas as well as come up with his own in terms of ideas for pictures, and was very flexible the day of the wedding in terms of going to multiple locations to take pictures. And the value that you get for $$ is absolutely great!

Xcitephoto is a great photographer and they run the business very professionally. The photos from our wedding are beyond amazing, I don't even have words to describe the emotion I felt looking through all of these! Andrew and his crew caught every single moment and we couldn't be happier!

They are professionally dressed and work perfectly with all different types of personalities you encounter during a wedding. I will recommend Andrew and his group to everyone for all events!

I felt very lucky when I found Andrew and xcitephoto! His work and prices were amazing and he really is a pleasure to work with! He was always accessible and available to answer any questions I had. We decided to get his "diamond" package which included everything and we couldnt be happier with our decision. Our engagement picture shoot was fun and the pictures turned out great and going through our wedding pictures, I know we made an excellent choice hiring him as our photographer.....all the pictures came out beautifully. its going to be hard to decide which ones will be used in our photo album. Also all our guests had so much fun with the photobooth at the wedding reception...it was a big hit!! You're not going to find anyone better than Andrew! He's so awesome that I even referred him to do my baby brothers wedding :)

Andrew exceeded my expectations! He secretly photographed and videoed my proposal and did an amazing job. He is very professional and easy to work with. He did a great job of directing my fiancee and me and our families for a variety of photographs. He was efficient, but he never made us feel rushed. He made the experience seem enjoyable instead of just a task. He is very responsive before and after the shoot, and the pictures turned out great. He obviously cared about our event. It wasn't just a transaction for him. I would strongly recommend Andrew.

Andrew was great to work with! Not only did Xcitephoto have very reasonable prices but the equipment Andrew uses is also excellent (my now husband does photography on the side and knows a lot more about cameras than your average person).

Andrew was flexible in meeting us at multiple locations to take pictures and was on time and extremely professional. We also received all of our pictures within reasonable amount of time. I have also told many friends who are getting married to use Andrew and his team based on the pricing and the value of what you get. We were very happy with our services!

Without a doubt, my favorite vendor the day of my wedding. When I was looking for a photographer I started my search at big companies where you couldn't meet the photographer but you could see 15-20 of their professional photos. I then met with a photographer who was charging $3000 for 5 hours of photography and nothing else, OMG!? I thought I would never find a great photographer in my price range but then the clouds parted and Xcitephoto popped up on weddingwire.com-thank goodness! When I met Andrew he was so nice and made you feel comfortable through the entire process, he wasn't pushy at all. I ended up purchasing the Diamond package and there's no surprises on his pricing, it's all on the website, and it's really reasonable. I researched so many companies prior to meeting Andrew and to get everything he was offering for a price even close to his was not possible. I thought to myself, what's the catch? There isn't one, he's an awesome photographer who genuinely cares about his clients and takes a lot of pride in his work.
I was not calm on my wedding day (a true bridezilla) but Andrew and his team were more then accommodating. They blended into the background so much that I didn't even know they were there. I was getting my make-up done and out of the corner of my eye he's there shooting away. Brides, this is exactly what you want the day of your wedding. Some photographers are loud and bossy, not Andrew and his team. They were beyond great, I swear they were almost whispering when they talked! At my reception we had the photo booth, this was hilarious. Please splurge and get this, totally worth it! Before I go on and on, because I totally could, Andrew and his team are great. I've referred Xcitephoto to multiple people and told them they won't find anyone like him. Thanks Andrew and your team for sharing our special day with us! You guys were beyond exceptional!

Let me start by saying that I looked through about 30 companies on wedding wire, looking at photos and reading reviews. All of the other companies had beautiful photos, but they were all the same. I knew in my head what I wanted, but just wasn't seeing anywhere, some traditional photography and, for lack of a better word, AWESOME photography. I wanted the colors altered, interesting angles, lenses used, photos that you don't see with most companies. When I saw his, I knew that was it. I called my fiance and said we found the photographer, before even seeing pricing or meeting with him. To be honest, we booked our wedding on a Friday instead of a Saturday, simply because of the dates he had available. What bride does that?? A bride who loves photography and knows out of the box talent when she sees it! His value is insane. Make it easy on yourself (and your wallet) and book everything with him, photo/video/photo booth. Ok, now fast forward to the wedding day. I'm not the typical bride, not the bridezilla, but I was so nervous that morning. I've seen pushy photographers that literally stress the bride out more! Andrew's demeanor kept me so calm!!! He made everything so easy. We had our reception at a golf course, and I cannot tell you how many amazing photos he took! Some even looked like a painting!! We recently got our pictures back and were shocked to see that there were over 1,000!! The photo booth was hilarious! The guests loved it!!! We just got our video montage back today. Andrew said if there was anything we want changed to let him know. I had a couple small changes that I wanted. He replied minutes later that the editor would be right on it. What service! All and all, it could not have been a better experience. There is not even the smallest complaint that I can think of. So, stop wasting your time meeting with other companies, make your wedding planning easy and just book with him. Do it!! :)

I would highly recommend Xcite Photo to anyone looking for a professional photographer. Andrew was very easy to work with and he did a fantastic job with our photos. We couldn't be happier with them. He did a variety of different poses from classical to artistic, and he captured all of our special moments. There were also some funny unexpected shots that he had us do that cracked us up! He wasn't intrusive at all; we hardly noticed when he would take pictures during our reception and they turned out so natural.

The prices were very reasonable and we couldn't believe that we got a photo album in addition! Most photographers' that we looked at had outrageous prices that we did not want to pay but Xcite Photo was extremely fair.

We liked that there were different well explained packages listed on the website and that it was easy to navigate. We also appreciated that we were able to own the rights to our pictures.

Xcite Photo had a very simple process from start to finish and I would recommend them to all my friends and family. Great Job!!

This review is long over due because I can’t stop looking at our wedding pictures or watching our wedding videos! Andrew and his team are nothing short of amazing and we are thrilled with the results! We hired Xcite to photograph our rehearsal dinner and wedding day, as well as provide video footage of our wedding day.
From our first meeting, Andrew won me over with his professionalism and easy going attitude, as well as how many full albums you can view prior to booking. His packages and contract are straightforward and are an incredible value for the high quality, customized work you receive.

On our wedding day, his team showed up early and stayed as late as we wanted– capturing so many important moments in our day! They were exactly the team a bride and groom would want by their side. Xcite was everywhere, like our own paparazzi, but so quiet and discrete, we hardly noticed them at all. Xcite made it a point to capture every shot or video footage I had requested, even remembering shots I had casually mentioned I liked in our initial conversation over a year prior!

After the wedding, we received our initial photo proofs and full digital album within a few weeks and our video montages shortly after. We were blown away by the huge amount of footage Xcite was able to provide and how great everything looked. We even heard from several people that our photos were some of the best wedding photos they had ever seen & we definitely agree! We would definitely recommend Xcite to anyone and plan on hiring them for future occasions! Book Xcite today, you will not regret it!

Our experience with Xcite Photography was fantastic. I was really stressing about choosing a photographer because I wanted our day to be captured perfectly. When I came across Xcite's profile and saw how high of reviews they had received, I was impressed and a little skeptical. After meeting with Andrew, I completely understood why he had such rave reviews. The one thing that stuck out immediately was that our happiness was genuinely important to him. I liked knowing that even though we were hiring him, it didn't seem like just a job to him. He truly has a passion for what he does and it shows through in the pictures he takes. Beautiful, beautiful work! I would highly recommend Xcite to anyone looking for quality service from quality people.

After meeting with Andrew, I completely understood why he had such rave reviews. The one thing that stuck out immediately was that our happiness was genuinely important to him. I liked knowing that even though we were hiring him, it didn't seem like just a job to him. He truly has a passion for what he does and it shows through in the pictures he takes. Beautiful, beautiful work! I would highly recommend Xcite to anyone looking for quality service from quality people. Read less

XCITE Photo is a very professional company that does quality work! I actually found XCITE Photo through Wedding Wire because of the outstanding reviews. I was impressed with the positive feedback and I liked that XCITE PHOTO offered "Photo Packages."

Honestly, ladies and gentlemen, XCITE PHOTO offers the BEST PHOTOGRAPHY DEAL OUT THERE if you are looking to have a P A C K A G E deal!! (For example, if you want to include Photo booth, Wedding Album, Videography, etc). (Packages vary).

My husband and I signed up with the DIAMOND PACKAGE. A popular choice and a great investment!!!

From the moment, I met the owner, Andrew DiMonda, I knew I wanted XCITE PHOTO to shoot my wedding. Andrew is friendly, flexible, and does his very best to make sure you (the couple) are satisfied. His CONTRACT is VERY SIMPLE and STRAIGHTFORWARD. Which was a plus..compared to other lengthy...confusing contracts I had reviewed.

On the day of the wedding, Andrew DiMonda and XCITE PHOTO team arrived on time to the venue and got to work right away. They were ORGANIZED, PROFESSIONAL, and ARTISTIC. Andrew and his crew was calm and made suggestions for different poses. Overall, XCITE PHOTO did a phenomenal job capturing every moment of the wedding from the "getting ready shots," "Special moments in the ceremony," to the "funny everybody dancing" shots.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND XCITE PHOTO to any BRIDE and GROOM who want professional pictures.

Andrew and his team are friendly, experienced, and were such a pleasure to work with. :D

Although we have not had our wedding yet, since my fiance and I have met Andrew we felt comfortable. He is kind, open to ideas, and above all willing to cater to us.
We are doing the platinum package that he offers and after shopping around his price really is competative! We recently took our engagement photos with Andrew at Catigny Park in Wheaton and Andrew captured us and the scene perfectly. For the amount of engagement photos we received the three week wait was worth it. Everything looked beautiful!
I can not wait until the wedding for the videography, photobooth, and photography from Andrew and his crew. I am confident that he will capture our day perfectly and you can expect another review after the fact.
If you are looking for a flexible, focused, and excellent photographer Andrew at Xcite Photo is the guy!

Andrew and Xcite Photography are simply amazing!! He is talented, creative, caring, genuine, and a wonderful business owner. Words cannot describe how amazing out wedding and engagement pictures were. He works non-stop to capture every wonderful moment of our special day. Rain or shine his pictures were amazing. It rained during the ceremony and yet you couldn't even tell. I recommend his services to anyone looking for a photographer. He also does videography and photo booths which was a huge hit at the wedding. With the experience Andrew has you will never have to worry about boring dull pictures. We had no idea where we wanted to have our engagement pictures taken and so he suggested Cantigny Park and it was breath taking and so fun! He really makes you feel comfortable and makes sure you have a great time. I definitely recommend him and will use Xcite Photography for any events our family has in the future!

Thank you again!!!

I can't say enough good things about Xcite Photography. Andrew was very helpful and professional from day one. He is extremely talented at what he does. Our pictures blew us away. I have been a part of a large number of weddings and all of the pictures are always the same. Andrew does an amazing job of incorporating traditional shots with unique and original photographs. I cried the first time I looked at the pictures because he had captured the day and all of the special moments so beautifully. He is also a very calming presence the day of the event and ensures that everything flows smoothly on his end. I never felt rushed or in a hurry with our pictures, yet they did not drag on either. We have every picture we could have wished for. Andrew and his team are extremely professional and easy to work with. You will not be disappointed with the product and I would highly recommend his services.

Where do I begin??!! Andrew was by far our favorite vendor! He truly has a gift for what he does! Andrew and his team were punctual, professional, and lastly a great addition to our wedding day!

We used Andrew back in October of 2012 for our engagement photography. Everyone raved about how beautiful our pictures were, and after that my Husband and I knew we were in good hands! We choose the highest package and all the extra services that you can possibly get, which are all great of course! We're so unbelievably excited to see how our wedding video and wedding photography turns out! (Especially after our sneak peeks we received a couple weeks ago!!!!)

Thank you Andrew and to your team as well, you made our night one we will never forget! Your photography tells a beautiful story and we are so happy we chose your company for our wedding day! We will be looking forward to receiving our final products, which I'm sure will take our breath away!

They were extremely professional, pleasant, and most of all patient with everyone from beginning to end. He really made every attempt to capture the entire day perfectly and succeeded. Our photos were beyond amazing, I couldn't be happier! Trust me when I say, you will be so happy with Xcite photo!!

I am in the photography industry and edit photos daily for a living. When it came to choosing a wedding photographer, I decided to go with someone I do not know so my friends could actually enjoy the wedding. Needless to say, this process was difficult as I was skeptical (especially since I worked for a wedding photography company in the past). However, when my husband and I met Andrew, we knew our pictures would turn out fantastic…and indeed they did!

Andrew was professional, attentive and creative. I could not have imagined our wedding photos to be any more perfect! One particular detail that I absolutely love about Andrew's work is that if you do not want your wedding photos to look like everyone else's, they surely will not. He thinks outside the box, from the moment he snaps the image to the final editing touches. If you have ideas, he makes sure he is prepared and will incorporate every single detail.

BONUS! The value is incredible! You cannot find the quality he produces anywhere else for his prices. Not to mention, you get SO much for your money.

I guarantee, you will not be disappointed with Xcite Photo!

The results turned out even better than I had expected and he was very prompt in getting our pictures to us. Wonderful service! I would definitely get more pictures done by him and I highly recommend him for any photo sessions.

Andrew was a complete pleasure, he had great ideas and made sure all my ideas got their day in the sun! He was truly a pleasure the whole day as was his assistant, and I would marry the man of my life all over agian, and hire xcite photo to shoot it that time too!

Andrew was absolutely amazing! He first did the most amazing engagement shoot ever. My now husband was very nervous of the photo shoot because he does not like pictures being taken of himself. He continually told me he was only doing it because I wanted them. After working with Andrew, my husband told me he actually enjoyed himself. Andrew was very easy to work with; he took a lot of candid shots and did not make us feel like we were being photographed. He wanted us to act natural and have fun. He also made the staged photos easy and entertaining.
Andrew then traveled with us to our destination wedding in Hawaii. He scouted out areas that he wanted photos taken for our rehearsal, photo shoot at the beach and our wedding. He took a lot of great shots that I am so excited to have. During the wedding I did not even notice him moving around getting all the shots. He was there capturing the moment, but did not capture anyone’s attention to get the pictures.
It did take him a little while to finish editing the photos and get them to me, but I guess it is expected when he took and edited over 700 pictures, and did such a wonderful time doing it. You can tell by his work that he takes pride in it, and that he wants the pictures to capture the events and the emotion of the day. I would highly recommend Andrew to anyone, and already have been telling everyone how great of a job he did.

Andrew was very easy to work with; he took a lot of candid shots and did not make us feel like we were being photographed. He wanted us to act natural and have fun. He also made the staged photos easy and entertaining.
Andrew then traveled with us to our destination wedding in Hawaii. He scouted out areas that he wanted photos taken for our rehearsal, photo shoot at the beach and our wedding. He took a lot of great shots that I am so excited to have. During the wedding I did not even notice him moving around getting all the shots. He was there capturing the moment, but did not capture anyone’s attention to get the pictures.
It did take him a little while to finish editing the photos and get them to me, but I guess it is expected when he took and edited over 700 pictures, and did such a wonderful time doing it. You can tell by his work that he takes pride in it, and that he wants the pictures to capture the events and the emotion of the day. I would highly recommend Andrew to anyone, and already have been telling everyone how great of a job he did. Read less

Andrew was amazing. He was not overbearing and was very responsive. He listened and took everything I had to say in mind. I was more then pleased with his service. I also enjoyed his "photo booth" very much. I liked that people got a 4x6 photograph. The props were excellent and everyone complemented me on it. I was very pleased with this whole experience. I received my photos very quick and they were above and beyond my hopes.

I can't begin to describe how happy I am with Xcite photography's services. Hands-down best decision I made concerning my wedding vendors. Andrew DiMonda and his team were professional, artistic, creative, friendly, and affordable. My pictures are outstanding, and I'm so happy I'll have such beautiful photos to remember our special day. The team was available and ready to work at every turn, and they were genuinely fun to interact with as well. They felt like part of the wedding party! We had a blast with them and would hire them again in a second.

AMAZING!!!!!

We found Xcite via a google search, but as soon as my then fiance and I met Andrew, we knew he'd be great at our wedding. He is extremely personable and a great person to spend 12+ hours with.

Andrew was professional the entire time while still being at ease with our family and friends. He was unobtrusive but still managed to capture even the smallest moments (including a tea party with our flower girls). The end result were some beautiful pictures that truly capture the day.

We also used the Photobooth service he has which is a great combination of the traditional posed photos and the modern Photobooth. Everyone from young to old enjoyed this service.

We are still waiting on our videography (which is because I can't pick my favorite pictures to put in the album), but we have no reason to believe the quality would lack here.

Andrew and his team were fantastic.

I am so glad that we had our wedding photos done by Andrew DiMonda of Xcitephoto -- I would recommend him to anyone, and have already handed out his information to several people who I know that are planning on getting married in the near future. Andrew is an extremely approachable, kind, and welcoming person. He knows an extraordinary amount about weddings and special events, and he took wonderful photos at our wedding. He even helped my husband and me to write up our schedule of events for the day. It was hard for me to imagine how the day would be lined up, but Andrew sat with us and walked us through it, and also gave us great ideas about things we could do. He made sure to get all of the photos that we requested and more. He did traditional photos as well as fun ones, and I couldn't be happier with the results.
Andrew is very professional and uses high-quality equipment. He knows exactly what he is doing and captures all of the important moments of the day. He listens to what the bride and groom want, and then also adds more to make sure they get as much out of the night as possible. He is very prompt with sending the photos back after editing, and is very open, communicating through the entire wedding process. I also appreciate that he doesn't use watermarks on his photos, and sends the full high-resolution images to the bride and groom. Other wedding photographers do not do this, and it really made us so happy that he did this.
I would recommend Andrew DiMonda and Xcitephoto to everyone that I meet, and cannot say enough good things about him and his service.

Andrew (and team!) were fantastic to work with -- I met Andrew at a bridal expo and really loved the albums he had on display, and couldn't believe the cost of his flat fee with the quality of work he had! He has a great photographer's eye, and was willing to take some risks with props and different poses which made the end result fresh and new. We loved our wedding venues (Basilica and Conservatory) and he captured the beauty of the day and space, and also got some amazing candid pictures of us and guests. We are so pleased with his work, and I have been recommending his work to my bride friends. Our guests really liked how unobtrusive he and his crew were, they let the guests enjoy the party and Andrew just worked behind the scenes/background to capture some awesome moments. Looking at our wedding pictures is a wonderful keepsake, and since I cant have another wedding, this is the second best thing to reliving that special day!! :D

We are SO happy that we went with Andrew (Xcite Photo) for our wedding. Andrew was very professional and easy to work with. He was very understanding and patient the entire time. He arrived on time and ready to go and I was never worried for a second that he was missing an important moment. Andrew was very open to my suggestions and ideas for specific shots while still adding his photojournalistic expertise to each photo. After seeing a few of the samples he sent to us right after the wedding, we were blown away by the quality & perfection of each photo. We were so impressed with Andrew and would recommend Xcite Photo to anyone!

Andrew was such a pleasure to work with. He was on time, answered emails quickly, and was able to handle my huge family. Andrew was able to do everything that we requested and then some. We are very happy with the quality of the photos he took, and he got them to us in a reasonable amount of time. He definitely went above and beyond what was expected of him. I would recommend him in a heart beat. Just FYI for all you brides out there... You can expect about a 2+ month turn around from your wedding to when you see your pictures. My cousin got married the month before and received her photos almost 2 months after me.

He conducted himself with a high sense of professionalism and I was impressed with what I saw on his website and at the expo. After going through everything we decided we would schedule a visit with him at his office and see some more of his work. We were absolutely impressed. He did an engagement photo shoot for us and those pictures were amazing. When our wedding day came he made sure everything went down according to plan and without a hitch. I didn't have to worry about anything he took control and directed everything that needed to happen. I would recommend Xcite in a heartbeat and would not hesitate seeking him out again in the future for any other photography needs I may have. Thank you Andrew!!

Andrew is one of the best photographers i have come across in the Chicago land area til this day. He is an amazing person to work with and knows how to capture some of the best moments. On our wedding day we were supposed to get married out side but ended up storming he took his natural elements around him and took the bad weather and used them to his advantage and made a horrible looking sky look like a beautiful piece of artwork. I was really really satisfied with his work not one regret of us working with him. I will be using him for any other photography i will need. Highly recommended if i could give him 6 stars i would. The Price is worth every penny.......

I cannot emphasize what wonderful experience working with Andrew was. Andrew was referred to me from a friend, along with a few other photographers. When I reach out to the three of them about have initial conversations, Andrew immediately responded, unlike the others who took a couple days. Second, his work was beautiful; he displayed his recent weddings to me and my mom and we decided to trust him with my big day.
About 7 months before the wedding, my fiance and I had an engagement shoot; Andrew spent 2 hours with us walking about downtown Naperville and yielding hundreds of fabulous pictures that we later used for Save-the-Dates, wedding programs, newpaper annoucements and general house decorations.
Before the wedding, Andrew always responded promptly to my emails and phone calls. At some point, the nervous bride just has to trust that her vendors will do what they are supposed to and I did that with Andrew. He showed up on time to get pics of the girls at my parents house. My only critique is his shoots with me holding Scrabble letters ie "I Do" or "Marry me" They aren't my thing but he said lots of brides like them. Maybe its just me :)
The day of the wedding was perfect. His team as conspicuous with the guests, getting lots of candid shots and blending in with crowd. He has lots of ideas of different poses and got tons of just me and my husband. At the end of the night, I even told him he could go home a bit early and he insisted that he and his team would be there til the contractual time was up. He is the epitome of professional and representing himself and his business as such.
I have since referred him to two girlfriends getting married and will continue to do so!

We are so happy with our decision to use Xcite Photo! From the moment we met Andrew at our engagement shoot we knew we made the right choice. As I clicked through the 842 pictures of our wedding I was absolutely floored. As a wedding planner, I have looked at thousands of wedding pictures and my expectations were really high. I was way over planned and had sent him a photo checklist that he kept in his pocket the entire day. Even though I was much more laid back on the actual wedding day, it meant the world to me that he had remembered to bring it. Andrew and his partner were so tentative to Scott, myself and my family. I frequently would grab on of them and ask them to take a picture during the reception and I saw my family doing it as well. Every moment was captured perfectly. To say my friend were rowdy is an understatement- and he was able to capture our craziness with style and class. We were not as lucky with all of our vendors, and when the DJ went off my timeline I had to ask Andrew to extend our contract by an extra hour to get all of the pictures I wanted- and he was happy to do so. I am so appreciative. I HIGHLY recommend Xcitephoto to all brides!!

We found Andrew through another photographer that we contacted. After explaining what we wanted for our wedding, he said Andrew would be a better fit for us. We had Andrew do our engagement shoot, wedding photography, videography, as well as a photo booth at our reception.

Not only is Andrew 100% professional, but he is also a lot of fun. He is so easy to get a hold of (which was a problem with other vendors we were dealing with) and makes sure your vision and thoughts are put into action. He is reliable, creative and a true talent. At our reception, he printed out about 10 sample photos of the wedding. From those alone, people were RAVING about how unique and creative the photography was.

If you are looking for a unique, fun and different look instead of the "traditional" wedding photos, Andrew is your guy. I cannot recommend him enough.

We found Andrew through another photographer that we contacted. After explaining what we wanted for our wedding, he said Andrew would be a better fit for us. We had Andrew do our engagement shoot, wedding photography, videography, as well as a photo booth at our reception.

Not only is Andrew 100% professional, but he is also a lot of fun. He is so easy to get a hold of (which was a problem with other vendors we were dealing with) and makes sure your vision and thoughts are put into action. He is reliable, creative and a true talent. At our reception, he printed out about 10 sample photos of the wedding. From those alone, people were RAVING about how unique and creative the photography was.

If you are looking for a unique, fun and different look instead of the "traditional" wedding photos, Andrew is your guy. I cannot recommend him enough.

Andrew has been a good friend of my husband and I's for quite some time. On our wedding day he was very attentive, flexible, considerate, and put in the extra effort to hone in on those precious moments one can easily miss! He made me very comfortable when I was getting ready and took everything in around him to capture. I loved the combination of candid and glamour photos. My guests absolutely LOVED the photo booth with all of the fun and comedic props he had. It was a great way to wrap up the wedding celebration too. So far we are very pleased with the photographs and recommend him to anyone in need of a quality photographer who has a keen eye for detail and those precious moments along with making you feel very comfortable. Andrew is completely professional and an excellent photographer!

I received Andrew's information at a bridal expo. When it came down to finding our photographer we looked through all of the information and recommendations from friends we had received along the way. After meeting with Andrew we did not need to look any further and booked on the spot. Our wedding day Andrew was right on time and had great ideas for photo shots. I received my photos 6 weeks after our wedding date, just as promised. I was beyond happy with my photos and the night was captured perfectly. I will be recommending Andrew to any friends or family in the future looking for an excellent and affordable photographer.

I discovered Xcite photography (Andrew) at a Bridal Expo. I loved the artwork I saw on display so I grabbed his brochure and took the information to home to my fiance. We spent hours looking at other photographers websites and for the quality we saw in his work, no other vendor was even close!! We met with Andrew with our moms and even our moms were blow away with what he had to offer!! Need less to say words cannot describe how absolutely amazing Andrew is!!! If he tells you he is going to do something he truly delivers!!! I could not have felt more secure in knowing that I was going to have so many memories to cherish for the rest of my life because of Andrew! Many of my girlfriends that got married before me still have not gotten their pictures. Andrew said we would have our pictures in 6 weeks and he kept his promise!! My friends are so jealous!!! Andrew and Xcite photography are reliable, honest, friendly, and talented. I am so happy to have them be a part of our special day!!!

Everyone says that pictures are worth a thousand words. It is much more true at your wedding. Andrew was able to capture each and every moment with such elegance and beauty. He was recommend to us from a friend and not only are we more than happy with our decision to have Andrew do our photography, but I plan on recommending him to everyone I know who is getting married in the future. We had our engagement (Chicago) and wedding (Sycamore, so you know he will travel) pictures with Andrew, and also videography. He was very accommodating, patient, timely and came with props to add just a little more to our pictures.

We were expecting to get our wedding picture proofs back in a timely manner, as we got our engagement pictures in a couple weeks... expecting at least two months, we were so surprised to get them in less than a month! He is exceptionally fast, but does not compromise on quality. Trying to choose the designated number of pictures for our album was very difficult because each shot was just perfect and I wanted all 1000+ pictures in my album, which we are anxiously awaiting to receive soon! :)

When you hire Andrew, you will be greatly satisfied with his kindness, willingness to work with you to get you what you want, speed and professionalism. His prices are VERY reasonable for what you are getting and again, I recommend him to anyone and everyone who is getting married!

Andrew is fantastic and the value and quality cannot be beat. Not only is he very professional, he is easy to work with and very personable.

Xcite was recommended by a friend and and we would recommend him to any other friends. The prints were wonderful and the best part is you receive your own negatives and can order as many copies as you like instead of paying inflated prices. Offers video, photo booth and other options as well.

Andrew at Xcite Photo did a great job at our wedding. He and his team were professional and got some wonderful shots. We love our pictures and received the proofs just 2 weeks after the wedding! And the best part is that Andrew's prices are very affordable. Andrew's prices could not be beat compared to other photographers and you are not sacrificing quality by choosing him.

Our guests also loved that they could order pictures for inexpensive prices (well less than a $1) - not the $8 or $9 for a 4 x 6 that other photographers will charge! Overall, we were very pleased and thank Andrew for helping make our day a success.

Andrew was recommended to us by a cousin that used Xcite Photography at her wedding. He came highly recommended, but still managed to exceed our expectations! Andrew and his team were professional, flexible, and completely gracious both during the planning process and on the day of our wedding! His use of artistic editing with colors, focus, and lighting allowed for beautiful photos that really captured the emotions of our special day. I would encourage anyone to consider Xcite for they photography and videography needs!

Andrew took beautiful pictures for our wedding. He was very professional and he's very creative.
The pictures took a little over 6 weeks to get back, and we did not get any previews like some of my other friends with different photographers that would have sneak peeks in a week or two. If you are looking for the more traditional poses I would let him know so he suggest these and makes sure they are taken, which he will have no problem doing, but I didn't feel these were the standard pictures he suggested. I was the one suggesting them mainly- which was a lot to think about on the big day.

The value of his packages are amazing, but I cannot speak on the part of the video because I have yet to receive that.

My only mark down was on communication. I usually only contacted him via email not phone, so he may be more readily available by phone but emails sometimes took a little longer to hear back from. I am also still waiting on hearing back from him on a question/ issue with the pictures.

Thank you Andrew for your beautiful pictures!

My husband and I were extremely pleased with the quality of our photos. They captured the intimacy of the day, our sense of humor, and mostly importantly a lifetime of unforgettable memories. With our LARGE bridal party, Andrew managed to gather us to take our group photos with professionally. The 1000+ plus photos that he provided helped us relive our wedding day, again and again. The day passes by so quickly, and he captures the beginning to the end...even the small details.

Our wedding took place on one of the hottest days in August, the beautiful morning turned into an early evening thunderstorm. This drastic changed in weather, put a huge DAMPER on the outside shots that we wanted. Despite this, Andrew graciously met with my husband and I after our wedding to take retake our solo/glamour shots, at no extra charge! It was a great compliment to our wedding day photos. Not only was it nice to get dressed up again in our wedding attire with my husband, it was so very much appreciated to capture our love as newlyweds. We appreciated the time that he took after our wedding to set up one on one time for us. I would highly recommend his services for couples and families in the future!
