I have had a passion for photography my entire life. Growing up, I was always doing some kind of visual art, whether it be photography or video editing or photo restoration. I wanted to start my own company to help others capture those special moments in time that we don't get back. Im very commited to excellence and I take very seriosly what I do. I am very proud of my over 100 5-star reviews on weddingwire. They are a testiment to my character, professionalism and abilites. I come from a very artistic Italian family. Photographic arts and music are where my talents are and where I have focused allot of my time. I look forward to bring my passion and talent to your big day!

My name is Phil,I have been working with Andrew for the past 6 years doing what I love. I decided to quit my day job to focus on photography full time with Xcite. My passion has become telling love stories with my images, and I'm so grateful that my work brings me together with so many amazing people whose stories I get to document.
Kirstie got her Bachelors degree in Communication Arts from Benedictine University. After graduating, she started working with Xcite Photo and Film as a photographer and videographer. She’s been obsessed with weddings since she can remember and knows that her own will be amazing after years of careful observation as she photographs them. She loves being able to capture the emotion between couples and all of their loved ones. Her favorite part of shooting weddings is being a part of the instant when the groom sees his bride for the first time. In addition to working with Andrew, Kirstie spends her time coaching a dance team and playing with her two loveable yellow labs, Kelso and Kado.

My name is Joe. My dad got me interested in photography at a young age, Since then it has been the passion of my life. I shoot weddings in Illinois and my style is creative journalistic. I am always looking to expand my horizons and love what I do!
I love to make short films.
After graduating in 2014, I went on to work on a couple of feature films in the Grip and Electric departments. These have been some of the best experiences I've had working on a film set. July 2014 I worked as Gaffer on the feature film,Josephine Doe. July 2015 I had the opportunity to work with the same crew on a feature film titled Wind.
In my spare time I continue to write and shoot short films with friends. These are still the best sets to work on. The most recent addition to my portfolio is a short film titledMordecai. I worked as Director of Photography on this production and had the awesome experience to shoot in an abandoned pickle factory.
My adventures won't be ending anytime soon. This website is a central location to find all my latest endeavors. I hope you enjoy my work!
