Kramer Photographers: Our History


Bob Kramer founded Kramer Photographers in the Chicago area in 1971.In 1978, he relocated to Palatine and opened his first studio on Northwest Highway. By 1986, the wedding and portrait business soared, necessitating a move to a larger studio at 17 East Palatine Road. Within five years the business had grown, and an even larger studio was needed, bringing us to our present location at 101 West Palatine Road. Over the years, studios in Naperville and St. Charles were opened to accommodate our clients in the western suburbs.
