BEST EXPERIENCE EVER!
If you do not hire Special Occasion Events for your DJ, MC & Photography needs, you are going to be missing out on the best event, ever!
My wife and I knew right when we met Rick (Our MC) that he was going to make our wedding the best party of the century! He exceeded that!
Rick was there for us for 13 months before the wedding all the way to midnight and beyond. We were always in contact with his team and he pretty much organized our entire wedding for us. He took all of our stress away from us and worked with ALL of our venders beautifully. The MC and the DJ had the dance floor FULLY PACKED THE ENTIRE NIGHT!!! People were still dancing when the venue was kicking us all out!
I wish we had enough words to describe how amazing Special Occasion Events was, but there simply aren’t enough words in the English language to do them justice.
All I can say is, Hire them and see for yourself. You will not regret it!
To the Special Occasion Events team, thank you for giving my wife and me the best day of our lives.

I don’t usually write reviews but Ashleigh deserves a great review! My family is scattered all around and when I finally got them all together and made plans with Ashleigh to get pictures done, she was very helpful in making plans! The day we were supposed to do this, more issues arose and Ashleigh was very helpful. Along with her amazing communication skills, she is also very talented and takes amazing pictures! My family was very happy with the pictures and will definitely look to Ashleigh again next time! Amazing job!!

When Gavyn shot my brother’s wedding, I knew right away I wanted her to shoot mine too. I noticed our styles were similar and soon found out we were on the same page with what we wanted out of our engagement as well as wedding shoots. I wouldn’t have wanted to go with any other photographer—Gavyn’s eye for natural, candid shots is exemplary. Her demeanor was professional, kind, and understanding throughout the entire process and we had a blast the whole time. We received the album from our May 11 wedding today and couldn’t be happier!

Super nice! I knew from our initial phone call that she was a good fit.

Freeman Photography & Design
Photographer in Central Illinois, basic editing, natural light, outdoor locations. Also specializing in graphic design, web design and social media.
When I was launching my products, the package design company was hiring photographers and directors for a thousand of dollars per hour which ended up to be about a 3 hour session. I then found Darren in an ad and we worked together for about the same amount of time and he charged me about 80% less for the same quality. I trusted Darren so for all future projects. I'd drop of products and explain to him what I needed and take off. A few days later I'd get the beautiful results in my Dropbox. Darren is so down to Earth, humble and friendly vs. other socially awkward artsy-fartsy photographers who rip you off and then think they're doing you a favor.

Our company is grateful to have such a professional, thoughtful, and thorough photographer. The ease of knowing we can let Ron run free to take the pictures we need is comforting. He knows what needs to be done and will always offer suggestions which is a nice added touch. Not to mention getting the files that night, if not early am, so we can send our e-blasts as needed.

Hi. I'm Ryan. I specialize in photographing real people who embrace being themselves - regardless of race, sexual preference, body type, religion, or age. I believe that people should not be treated like props and so I encourage you to simply BE YOU and soak up your wedding day instead of being dragged away from it. I have a knack for capturing the honest moments, vibrant personalities, and the authentic people instead of just poses.
Ryan and his assistant, Brian, were absolutely fantastic for our wedding. Leading up our wedding day, Ryan was incredibly helpful and organized. On the big day, they were great to hang out with during the day, making you feel comfortable. They were so friendly, it was easy to smile and be in the moment. We got the photos back within a week and a half! and we were blown away with the photos. He did a great job of capturing special, candid moments, along with the traditional family photos. Everyone that was in front of his lens, he made look like $1 million bucks. I would book Ryan again in a heartbeat and plan to recommend his services to all other brides and grooms.
Thank you Ryan and Brian!!

maternity | newborn | baby | kids | family | couples | pets | weddings | christenings | baptisms | events
I have been photographing Chicago families specializing in on-location and studio maternity photography, newborn photography, baby photography, kids photography, family photography, couples photography and pet photography for few years. My unique approach in photography is using natural light or studio lights to photograph babies, kids, couples and families.
From the very start, Claudia was the sweetest, easiest, and nicest for our family photoshoot. She is great at picking the perfect photography locations. Her style is unique and her ability to capture candid moments is unrivaled. I usually feel shy when I have to take photographs but she makes you feel very comfortable and soon you'll find it hard to stop smiling! I can't stop looking at the photographs she took of my little family. They're stunning and captured such special moments that I will cherish for years to come.
If you're looking for an affordable photographer but not wanting to compromise on quality, then look no further!
Katie Scarlett is a talented photographer and all around great person. We love how our wedding photos turned out - a good balance of fun and candid photos, as well as formal. She provided us with the direction we needed and gave suggestions on shots to highlight the beauty of our environment. If we were able to give her 6 stars we would :)
We took our sons 1 month pictures with Izabela. Izabela was awesome and full of ideas - things i wouldn't be able to think of, but made a huge difference in creativity of the pictures. Oh and we got our pictures super fast!! Within just couple of days we had the pictures we so eagerly anticipated.
Thank you Izabela for an awesome experience and amazing pictures.
I hired Winterlyn to do some family pictures as well as my daughter’s birthday party pictures. She arrived on time, she took a look around our property and had many ideas on where to do photos. Very patient and friendly. She has an eye for detail. All pictures were crisp and clean and I was very happy with them! I would definitely recommend using Winterlyn for all of your photo needs!
Chris was a lot of fun and captured our day beautifully. He was extremely flexible and really helped us keep on schedule. The final photos were delivered when promised and they were absolutely amazing! Thank you for making our wedding so special. Highly recommend!
Working with Andre was an absolute pleasure from beginning to end. He was very professional throughout our wedding and was wonderful to work with. Andre was accommodating to our needs throughout the day and made sure we were able to get all of the photos that we wanted. We were beyond happy when we got all of our photos back as they were better than we could have even imagined! I would definitely recommend using Andre LaCour Photography for your big day, they are the best, and for those once in a lifetime moments there is no one else better to capture them!
I'm a big fan of this studio and its owners. I first engaged their services for headshots at my workplace. They did a great job of taking over 200 headshots in no time at all. The shots came out great and Jerry was accommodating when it came to touching up chosen images. I've since worked with Jerry on various projects, including pictures of my daughters. I plan to engage their services for family portraits and any additional needs at my workplace. I highly recommend Bordeaux!
Elizabeth with ECR is fantastic! We discovered her through a good friend after she posted pictures of her son in ECR's very cute Easter set/mini session! When I reached out to her she messaged me back right away and was more then willing to work with us on setting up a time to take pictures of our daughter. She is super friendly, and very fast....which is key when you are working with kids! I can't wait to take fall pictures with Elizabeth! Thanks again :)
We used Dave for our July 2010 wedding and had a great experience. Photography was really important to us, since it's really the best memory from the day and something that can be shared with those who couldn't join us. When looking for a photographer, I sought someone who took great photos (obviously), had good bedside manner (it's awkward being in front of the camera, so we wanted someone who could 'warm us up') and it was very important to us that we would retain ownership of the photos, ie get a disc of them given to us afterwards that we could do what we wanted with. We didn't want someone who we had to order prints off their website at a high cost. I had in-person meetings with three photographers and Dave was the obvious choice. I loved his work, I liked having a male photographer for some reason, and he just seemed like a cool guy that would be easy to work with. We had an engagement session (included in the price) which was a great way to get to know him. On the day of our wedding, he was a true pro. He anticipated everything so he was ready to capture each special moment. Working with him afterwards was really easy too. He and I both selected our favorites to be put into our album (which turned out gorgeous by the way) and he sent me a proof to review before it went to print. We would hire Dave again in a heartbeat. Wedding photography isn't cheap (Dave's pricing is in alignment with the other photographers I met with) so it's important to feel that your money was well spent. I feel so lucky to have such beautiful photos to remember my wedding day by.
Great Location for an intimate concerts experience. Acoustics can be great.
Commercial and portrait photographer with a passion to create something unique.
Work featured in Chicago Tribune, MarthaStewartLiving.com, Happy Tails and Bizarre Magazine to name a few. Also, a lot of Facebook profile photos :)
Eva was great! She had great ideas for outdoor locations for my daughter's 1st birthday and every single photo came out great! My daughter had a blast! I forgot to bring the smash cake, but Eva insisted that my husband run and get one because a cake smash would be so much fun- and she was right! Such a memorable experience! Thank you, Eva!
We had current family pictures taken when my son and daughter in law were home for Christmas. We only had a couple of days when we could have our pictures taken and Chanel was very accommodating. My husband and I also had our 50th Anniversary picture taken at the same time. Chanel made the experience fun and she was very professional. I loved her attention to detail before she took the shot! I would totally recommend her!
We cannot recommend Lauren enough!! We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Lauren several times. Not only are her photos absolutely STUNNING, she is also a true professional in ever sense and has always been such a positive, smiling presence at every event we've had the opportunity to work at together! Fun DMC LOVES working with Lauren and will continue to recommend her to everyone we meet!
Never disappointed.. Toni has done all of our pictures from my pregnancy pictures to our family pictures five years later. She always makes them very personal and even with two little boys who make things difficult she still captures great pictures!
Erica is a rare find of great talent in photography and editing. She is super friendly and professional, got amazing photos of my active toddler, and offers affordable pricing, as well. Highly recommend!
Footography photos has always been the go-to source for all of my photography needs.

Antonio has been a joy to do business with and he is great with my kids. I highly recommend this company and will be returning soon for a pregnancy shoot!!!
My daughter's senior photo session was an awesome experience! We had such a great time and her senior pics are beautiful! Stephanie made her feel very comfortable and not only listened to all of my daughter's ideas, but also used them in her shoot! And the location was absolutely gorgeous! In 2 years, my son will be a senior and we will be back! ( or maybe sooner....ashlyn had so much fun she wants to do it all over again!) thanks Stephanie, you are the best!
