Wes Craft Photography is a husband and wife team of Necia & Wes Craft, based out of Naperville, Illinois. We have served almost 500 couples across all of Chicago over the last 12 years. Get to know us a bit below!

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.


Experience

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.

Interesting Fact

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!"

    High quality photography and great service for a reasonable price!

    We chose Wes Craft to photograph my daughter鈥檚 wedding based on the high quality of the photos on his website and a great recommendation from a friend whose wedding he had photographed. We were not disappointed. Wes and his wife, Necia, captured every important moment of the wedding day as well as providing us with high quality portrait photos of our families and friends. The photos were available six weeks after the wedding, as promised, and the prints and canvas I ordered were delivered in time for some memorable Christmas gifts. I highly recommend Wes for his skilled photography!

    Absolutely PHENOMENAL!!!!!!!

    We hired Wes for our engagement photos a couple years ago and absolutely loved how turned out, so it was an easy decision to hire him for our wedding. And we are SO glad that we did! Our wedding photos are absolutely stunning and we're getting nonstop compliments from our families & friends. Showing off Wes's incredible work to everyone has become a huge source of joy for my wife & me. Wes has an incredible instinct for capturing timeless moments. He also kept everyone (young & old) in high spirits during prep, portrait, and post-ceremony photos. We really can't recommend Wes enough. He's so incredible at what he does that you'll be thinking of reasons/occasions to hire him again as soon as possible - I know we are! Thank you, Wes - You captured our entire wedding absolutely beautifully!!!

    Breathtaking work!

    Wes has an amazing eye and captures everything in a way we never thought possible. We used him for our engagement photos which were absolutely gorgeous. So we had to have him take our wedding photos. They were breathtaking. Everyone raved about our photos. We get to relive our wedding through the photos alone. You will not be disappointed!

With Love With Love Wedding Planners

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!!!
