Wes and Necia were amazing. They both are very friendly and professional. While traveling between venues and during the time between photos they felt like another guest/friend; while directing shots they were undeniably professional photographers who made everyone feel comfortable and accommodated requests for certain shots; and at other times they were completely unobtrusive while capturing candids. Our expectations were majorly exceeded when they quickly diffused a couple day-of obstacles and went far beyond their duty to help make our wedding the best day of our lives. The only factor that should stop you from working with Wes and Necia is if they happen to already be booked on your wedding day.

Wes and Necia Craft are consummate professionals with a passion for photography and an incredible knack for bringing your wedding day to life through pictures. Wes has an eye for shots that just take your breath away. The quality of their work is second to none. On top of the fact that they do amazing work, they are also lovely people who are so easy to work with. They are very straight forward with their packages. No hidden fees. No last minute charges. Everything is explained up front. What you see is what you get, which is so refreshing with wedding photographers! And on our big day, they made our friends, family and us feel comfortable and relaxed under circumstances that can be stressful and nerve wracking. Wes is always making you laugh when he's taking pictures! Wes and Necia both have the most wonderful demeanor, whether taking photos or communicating with you to finalize details, answer questions, etc. They are responsive, flexible, creative, and their service is incredibly fast compared to horror stories you hear about brides and grooms waiting up to a year to get their wedding album. From initial appointment to engagement photos to our final wedding photos, we always thought Wes and Necia were super speedy! I would recommend Wes Craft Photography to anyone in search of a photographer. Thank you for everything!!!!! You guys are the BEST!!!!!

I will aggressively recommend Wes to all of my friends, sisters, and even aquaintences to use him as their wedding photographer. If you value good photos at your wedding, go with Wes and Necia. Their humor and kindness also help calm anyone shy to the camera and consequently help to create more natural photos.

If you are a diva bride and are stuck on having shots a specific way, you may need to rethink your attitude or get a different photographer. Instead of looking for a brick wall or some other perfect backdrop, he is always looking at angles of light and how the sun is hitting you. He is more creative than me, so giving him control helped to create fabulous photos. That said, he is also very willing to make sure that you get what you want out of your photos sessions and run with your creative ideas.

I asked several friends with photography backgrounds to help me pick my wedding photographer and they all picked Wes. I would go so far as to say he is the best photographer in the Chicago and area for his price range.

We cannot express how grateful we are to have found Wes & Necia to capture our wedding. I can be particular about photo style and editing, so I spent a lot of time looking for the best photographer for us. Initially looking for wedding photographers was disappointing, as many of the photographers we were interested in were way outside our price range. When I found Wes Craft Photography, I was absolutely blown away by the pictures on their website and could not believe how affordable they were. I can honestly say the value went beyond our expectations. Their attitude, professionalism, and expertise showed through, and from wedding day to the photo reveal we had the entire wedding party and many guests commenting that "we picked a REALLY great photographer".

There were two main things I appreciated with Wes Craft Photography, that I hadn't experienced from other photographers (as bridesmaids in friend's/family's weddings): 1) Attention to detail and precise direction - Setting up portrait shots can be tricky, but Wes Craft carefully selected how each person was positioned. This involved paying close attention to lighting so every single person in the shot looked great. 2) Bringing out positive emotion in portrait shots - Wes does a great job at saying things that make people smile or laugh, so happiness and joy come through. In making things more fun, better pictures result.

The pictures that we have from our wedding are absolutely beautiful and when I saw them for the first time I was brought to tears. We're glad we found Wes Craft Photography and appreciated their strong work ethic and attention to detail. There are so many photos that were taken that we will treasure for years to come.

I would recommend Wes and Necia as wedding photographers. This was one area where choosing a photographer was difficult because we wanted to have the best possible pictures of our special day. Once we met with Wes and Necia, we knew that they would be the perfect choice. Our engagement pictures were everything we wanted and the pictures we have seen of our wedding so far are so perfect. Wes and Necia made taking pictures fun and were so accommodating throughout the whole process. We would definitely recommend them!

Professional. Amazing. Soothing to the bride. Detail oriented. Did I say amazing? Wes and Necia also did the engagement session with my daughter and her fiance in downtown Chicago . . . GORGEOUS results!!

The dance floor was full all night long. Every I saw something or noticed someone and thought to myself, "Oh! We need a picture of that!" I looked and Wes and/or Necia were already "on it".

I cannot wait to see the end result of this most wonderful day. I said it when I had my own wedding nearly 25 years ago, .... the pictures are the only thing that we will be paying for that will last .... I want the best and I don't mind spending the money. I told her daddy the same thing when we started planning our daughters wedding this time, and my daughter and new son-in-law have been as impressed as I am. Spend the money . . . get the best. It's worth it. This is what lasts a lifetime and more.
