We are so happy to have discovered Wes Craft Photography. What made them stand out the most to us was their artistry and the way their pictures told a story. As soon as we looked through their photo gallery, we knew we wanted to hire them for our wedding. The only hesitation we had was whether they would be able to capture our ethnic wedding with the same creativity and style as they did with American weddings.Sent on 08/21/2019
During our first meeting, Wes took the time to get to know us, both as a couple and individually. He went over their services, packages, and showed us more of their work. While we discussed our vision for our wedding, he listened and took notes. This was very important for us because we were having an Assyrian wedding with many traditions and continuous line dances. We explained to him how a typical Assyrian wedding day would look like and all of the traditions that would occur. Wes was very understanding and assured us that he would pay close attention to all the details. After meeting with Wes, we felt comfortable to hire them.
Our experience with Wes and Necia Craft was more than we ever hoped for. They are professional, creative, detail-oriented, communicative, respectful, and most importantly collaborative. Wes and Necia worked with us as we planned our wedding schedule and photo locations, on the wedding day as they directed our bridal party and family photos, and after our wedding as they helped us design and edit our album. Wes and Necia always communicated with us in a timely manner; addressing any of our questions or concerns. They also delivered our photos as promised.
Furthermore, what makes Wes and Necia amazing photographers is that they truly care about their clients. They treated us like family and learned our family member’s names ahead of time. On the wedding day, they referred to our immediate family by first name. We all have ethnic Assyrian names and Wes and Necia nailed our pronunciations! Not only did we, the immediate family, love having Wes and Necia as a part of our wedding, but so did our guests! During and after our wedding, our guests expressed how professional, humorous, and friendly Wes and Necia were.
Lastly, our photographs, from our engagement session to our wedding day, came out beautiful. Wes and Necia captured so many intimate and candid moments that we will cherish forever. The quality and creativity behind each photo is what makes us smile and relive our wedding day and why we chose Wes Craft Photography. Our family and friends always tell us how our photos look like they came from a magazine - all thanks to Wes and Necia!
We highly recommend Wes Craft Photography!

Wes Craft Photography - Wes Craft Weddings's reply:It was so thoughtful of you to leave this extensive review. I'm touched you noted our care for your personal cultural celebrations. Necia & I spent more than half of our childhoods living outside of the U.S. and have been shooting weddings in the diverse communities of Chicagoland for over 12 years now. One of the things we pride ourselves in and enjoy most is experiencing the diverse expressions of weddings across cultures. For every unique thing in one culture's wedding traditions there are cross-cultural threads and universal truths in love and family that we get to explore. Thank you for sharing your rich Assyrian Orthodox heritage with us.

A True Artist
Where do I begin...Sent on 08/26/2019
Wes Craft and his wife Necia are the most underrated photography duo ever. Their hard work and attention to detail are truly remarkable. We have gotten so many compliments from all our friends and family about both our engagement and wedding photos from Wes. They were able to capture so many emotions from our beautiful wedding day. Even his slideshow brought my maid-of-honor and I to tears.
Working with Wes from the very beginning has been a dream and he is by far our most favorite vendor. During our initial meeting, Wes took extensive time to explain his photography style and show us examples. The icing on the cake was his experience working with cultural weddings. My husband and I were planning on having a traditional Chinese tea ceremony and wanted to have it captured on photos. It was so refreshing for Wes to already be familiar with the ceremony and even examples of past tea ceremonies he captured! My husband and I were floored by how the photos turned out and all the neat little moments he captured of our loved ones in the background of the ceremony.
Our wedding day could not have gone better. His experience helped us plan a nice wedding day timeline that eased the nerves of an anxious bride. He is so detail-oriented and fantastic with communication - which I value so much in a wedding vendor. Wes and Necia were so patient and went the extra mile to capture all the best shots. All of the photos turned out amazing and was a true artwork of our love story. We are beyond excited to work with Wes again to put together our album.
Wes and Necia was the best wedding investment by far and we would recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a talented photographer!

15/10 would recommend Wes!!!
Wes has photographed my sister's wedding, my family reunion, and my own wedding - we've dubbed him our unofficial "official" family photographer because he is quite seriously THE BEST. From a professional standpoint, he is responsive, helpful, engaged, personal, and INCREDIBLY TALENTED. He will adjust his photography style if you have specific requests, but overall he has a vision and will help you look fire in your photos. His style of photographing makes you feel comfortable and as a result, your photos turn out beautifully. I can't recommend Wes enough - he has never failed to deliver stunning photos with a personal touch. For any photography need, Wes will always be my number 1 choice. Thank you for immortalizing our wedding day with your amazing talents, Wes!Sent on 12/07/2018

It's always fun working with Wes and his team. He has a way of connecting with his clients which helps make for great portraits. Definitely recommend him!
Wes is an incredibly talented photographer and is truly able to deliver an end product to the bride and groom that will be the keepsake of their wedding memories forever. He is able to capture the events of a wedding day in an artistic and timeless way. I've seen him photograph not only the moment, but the emotion, the lights, the excitement, etc... in a way that will allow each couple that hires him to relive their wedding day over and over again.
I am a Makeup artist that has done a few weddings where Wes Craft has done the Photography. I have to say he Stands OUT!! The way he photographs is not like any other. No wonder he is so requested. He captures beauty shots and just memorable shots that you will have for a life time. It is almost like your photos have a life of their own. That is PURE talent. Also to see how the bridal party lights up when he photographs is priceless. Any one that uses Wes Craft photography for their Special day is truly getting a treasure!!!
