@pioneercreekfarm was such a cool venue for a wedding. It's only 3 hours from Chicago! Destination wedding anyone?? The llamas were so cool but the barn and other facilities were great. We can't wait to share more from your wedding with you @kristinmac3.⠀

In an Assyrian Orthodox wedding ceremony the crowning is deeply symbolic charge for a bride & groom to be a king and queen justly ruling their spheres on behalf of God, being representatives of love, righteousness, justice, and goodness. I always love this ritual.⠀

For Nineveh & Aphrem it was especially unique that one of the priests is a friend who introduced them! And they wear the most lovely robes!⠀

I tried something new at our last wedding. At first glance it's a just a lovely wide landscape photo of Aphrem & Nineveh beneath the curved branches of this tree. What you're seeing was actually made from 12 photographs of the scene and stitched together to make a landscape view photograph captured with 200mm 2.8 telephoto bokeh (creamy blurred background). You don't usually see blurred backgrounds with landscape photos so it's particularly magical... I'm going to be doing this at every wedding from here on out....#chicagoweddingphotographer #napervilleweddingphotographer #chicagowedding #husbandandwifephotographers #chicagoengagementphotographer #napervilleengagementphotographer #rememberitvividly #wescraftphotography #chicagobride #napervillebride #napervillewedding #engagedinchicago #weddinginchicago #shesaidyes #ido #canon5dmarkiii #canonphotographer #canonweddingphotographer #soloverly #weddinginspo #weddinginspiration #editedwithadobelightroom #panorama #brenizermethod #photostitch #assyrianorthodoxwedding #DabkeToDanha #firstsandlasts

Clients for life! 5 years ago we photographed Alex & Brandy's wedding and shortly afterwards they moved to New York City. We were excited to hear that they were coming back into town for a special occassion and they wanted us to photograph it! Their baby girl Braeburn was Baptized at Chicago's St. Clement's Church where they were married. One of the most rewarding things about this profession is staying in touch with our clients and meeting their littles!⠀

Meet the Crafts! 👋 We are Wes & Necia (pronounced Nee-sha) Craft, married for 11 years and shooting together for the last 7. We love to travel and between us we've been to at least 15 countries and almost every state. That's one of the reasons Wes is so enthralled by the World Cup every 4 years. We love living in Chicagoland for its truly international and multicultural scene. We've been able to capture such a wide variety of wedding celebrations over the years. The love and committment between two people is a universal quality that keeps us excited and engaged for all our clients!

5 years ago Michael & Ashley had a gorgeous Chicago wedding at @theblackstonehotel. Recently we were commissioned to create this 5th anniversary gift from Michael to Ashley. Take a look at some of our favorite features and spreads!⠀
.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
The title graphic itself, originally designed by the bride, was taken from their wedding invitation suite pictured. We printed it in gold foil on white Italian leather. Gold linen lines the inside of the cover and we've printed details inside. The spreads are printed on gloss laminated Metallic paper which is Wes' favorite for showing color and contrast. It's extremely dynamic and best showcases our style of shooting.⠀
