Pen and Lens merges the visual disciplines of design and photography.

Run by Becky and Kaleb Dean, the practices and owners amplify one another as iron sharpens iron. The studio’s visual output ranges in scope from photographing weddings, to designing identities for educational institutions, yet is unwavering in its quality. This interdisciplinary approach underpins our pursuit of visual excellence.

About Pen and Lens Photography

Team Dean

Pen and Lens Photography Abbreviated Logo in Black
Husband and wife photographers in Boise, Chicago, and beyond, we are college best friends turned soul mates. Kaleb proposed in a photo booth one cold November in Chicago, our friends and family gathered twice in one week to celebrate our marriage on opposite sides of the country, and we’ve been adventuring through life together ever since! We love working side by side, so photographing weddings that way is a dream come true.

How We Work

We photograph every Pen and Lens wedding together and have a blast doing it! Our photography approaches are as different as the movie snacks we reach for, but we’re both behind the camera to capture images you’ll cherish for years to come. Together, we promise to host you from behind the camera, to help you feel comfortable, be yourselves, and have the best time celebrating with your closest family and friends. We’re the dream team on your wedding day, but when it comes to guiding you through the wedding photography process, Becky takes the lead. She runs the photography side of Pen and Lens, and will create a personal experience for your wedding photography with us.

About Pen and Lens Design

Kaleb Dean

Pen and Lens Design Abbreviated Logo in Black
At Pen and Lens Design, we maintain that images shape culture—we make the complex clear, the old new, the formless real, and the aesthetic prevalent. Through strategic thinking, sophisticated form making, and critical engagement, our transverse approach of both physical and digital methods enables us to create successful visual and brand identities, books and editorials, environmental and wayfinding graphics, and communication programs.

Why “Pen and Lens?”

Pen, for the sketchbook process and artistry that takes place when Kaleb takes his ideas for visual and brand identities, and entrepreneurial ventures and puts them on paper, and Lens for the way Becky’s artistic and relational heartbeat come alive when she works with clients and captures their personalities and relationships through her camera. But it’s not just about those two aspects of our business: design and photography.

We very carefully chose Pen and Lens, because of our vision to expand our business. When it comes down to it, our hearts are for people. We chose a name for our business that will effortlessly envelope the people we hope to educate and mentor, a name they can hold on to as they become a part of our studio and our creative work. Our vision for Pen and Lens is to grow it into a studio of more people than just us. We’re designers and photographers, but deep down we’re also educators, collaborators, leaders, and mentors.
