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.
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.
