Gerber + Scarpelli Do More Than Wedding Photography

One of the valued clients of ChicagoStyle Weddings, we were touched by the new project of wedding photographers Gerber + Scarpelli—they have produced a film documenting the lives and struggles of Iraq war veterans who have returned home.

From founder Kurt Gerber:
“A year and a half ago my son and I started down a path that changed our lives. As a country we had just learned there was going to be an end to Combat Operations in Iraq, but there was a lesser-reported story emerging: Veterans were starting to die by their own hands at home, at a higher rate than on the battlefield. We decided then that we were going to meet the men and women who served in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, document our experience and talk about how we as Americans can serve those who served us. We've created a film about it.”
