Don’t cry.

As wedding photographers we’re privileged to have VIP access to you and your loved ones on your wedding day! In fact, we often spend almost the entire day with you and love every moment. BUT there are two words we never want to hear on your wedding day…

Don’t cry.

We get it—wedding days come with a boat load of emotions. We also understand that couples and their families may not feel all that comfortable showing those emotions when they feel like the paparazzi is standing in the corner of the room.

But hiding those emotions keeps you and others from being fully present.

On your wedding day, we want you to feel all the things…let all the tears fall…have sore cheeks from the smile that keeps coming back. We want you to truly live into those feelings and savor every moment.

Feeling deeply often sparks our memory later.

Instead of hiding your face or worrying about ruining your makeup, we desperately want you to share tears, give hugs, and know that those moments and the memories you have of them—both in your mind and from your photographs—are cherished, real, beautiful pieces to the story of your wedding day.

So cry, laugh, take a deep breath, and be authentically you with the people you love on your best day.

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.
