Interview with Wes & Necia
Wes: Our marriage is the best thing that's happened to us. It's been a source of joy and personal growth as humans. It's with this in our hearts that we give 100% to capturing your wedding memories.
Necia: I love that a wedding day hinges on your vows, made within a community of friends and family. There's no shortage of traditions, symbols, and people for us to photograph.
Wes: What we do differently than other photographers is that we pay attention to the little details like who carved your arbor. We ask ourselves where they are sitting right now as you exchange vows beneath the arbor they carved. We want to remind you of all those who celebrated with you and are there for you.
I love our portrait work, it stands toe to toe with anyone in Chicago, but we uniquely realize that a wedding isn't just about pretty portraits of the bride and groom. The photos should also answer the question: 'Who came to celebrate with us? Who else was there? Who do we come from? Who do we aspire to be?'
Necia: We shoot natural light when the natural light looks great. When the lights go down Wes & I have tricks in our bag so that we don't stop producing gorgeous images just becuase golden hour ended.
This rare skill goes a long way and is especially noticed during winter weddings with nightfall at 4pm!
So many other photographers are limited to golden hour portraits and then the rest of the coverage is suffering.
Wes Craft Photography's Style is a mix of candid moments, the big and small, documented with attention to detail, combined with editorial portraits that convey authentic warmth and your personality.
Wes and Necia Craft have been trusted since 2007. They have photographed over 500 weddings and engagements with a unique vision and an open heart to their client's personal stories. 10,000 hours got blown past years ago.
What sets these two apart is their versatility to capture BOTH candid moments AND skillfully made portraits. Most photographers can only do one or the other well. They're also versitle after the natural light has faded as they produce cinematic portraits after dark and dynamic wedding reception photography.
Both Wes and Necia have international backgrounds and are particularly interested in the cross cultural and multicultural expressions found in Chicagoland's weddings. Necia shares, "We have worked closely with couples from every major faith tradition and dozens of Chicagoland's major cultural backgrounds. We love to find what's universal and what's unique in each. Give us a call soon while we're still available on your date!"

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!!!
