More than 100 people came out to a business spotlight event to honor and congratulate Bob Kramer, founder of Kramer Photographers, for his 40 years of business in Palatine. In addition to family and friends of the longtime business owner, Palatine Mayor Jim Schwantz was also in attendance and presented Kramer with a certificate of appreciation from the Village of Palatine.

“I’m just so honored,” Kramer said after the presentation.

Several individuals who attended spoke about the impact Kramer has had on them, either through his friendship or his business.
