Dan & Karlen's Chicago date night started with their engagement photos!

They work on the same floor in the hospital but this weekend Karlen and Dan squeezed in a Chicago date night that started with their engagement photos!

Reminiscent of the night Dan asked Karlen to be his wife, we met them in the late afternoon glow of the sun slowly setting near the lake. He proposed on a dock by a lake in the fall, and this weekend they held each other tight with the icy lake and larger than life Chicago skyline behind them.

Each time I lifted my camera and they locked eyes, they just kept laughing. As we clicked image after image, it was clear that life together for Dan and Karlen is so much fun.

Karlen and Dan, you pour your work days into caring for others, but it was so fun to see the way you care for each other in your images. What an honor to know such a selfless, grounded, loving, and joy-filled couple. We cannot wait to capture your wedding day this year! Hugs, Becky & Kaleb.

Becky Dean

I'm a co-founder and lead photographer at Pen and Lens.

Wedding photography is my heartbeat. I love capturing the interactions between the bride and her tribe as they get ready together, the look on a groom’s face when he FINALLY sees his bride for the first time, and the way a dad wraps his arms around his baby girl on her wedding day. Bride and groom portraits make my heart jump and I cry on almost every wedding day.
