Modern Chicago and Boise Wedding Photography

Pen and Lens Photography

We believe in relationships of influence.

For years to come, you’ll remember the thrill you felt as you slipped into the dress you’d been dying to wear; the tears that welled up in your parent’s eyes as they helped you get ready; the deep breath you took just before walking down the aisle; the energy you felt as you walked hand in hand out of your ceremony; the way it felt to dance together, completely surrounded by your loved ones.

You’ll feel those moments!

When the people you welcome into your home glance at the frames on your walls, they’ll feel them too—your young love turned legacy. 

We believe that your marriage will influence generations, that the stories and moments of connection wrapped up in your wedding images will be the first of so many defining moments of your love story.

And we can’t wait to capture them for you.

Our Approach

For us, wedding photography is a delicate dance between observing the moments that unfold before us and giving natural direction to ensure you feel comfortable and look your best. We want you to see your images and feel the same way you felt in those moments, to see yourselves and the people you love written all over your photographs. We make choices with intention on your wedding day, getting to know you and what’s most important to you so it’s reflected in your images.

Together, we create images that feel natural and full of life.

Like a well composed symphony, your photographs will draw you in and fashion the story of your day. From the smallest intimate details to the most emotionally charged moments, your photographs will be a spirited recollection of the most cherished moments of your wedding day.

We’re an opposites attract kind of couple with the exception of our love for movies, dancing, and afternoons at the Art Institute. Kaleb is a calming presence, fading into the background to capture the stolen glances that will make your heart jump when you see them in a photograph. Becky brings the energy, drawing out genuine laughs and connection in front of her camera. She’s quick to befriend your loved ones and cries alongside them on almost every wedding day.

Raves and Reviews

Their energy made us so comfortable and we knew that the photos they were capturing were going to be perfect!

From the beginning, Becky and Kaleb were extremely nice and very relatable. They made us feel so comfortable and all of the pictures we saw on their site/social media looked beautiful! My bridal party had nothing but great things to say about Becky & Kaleb. The ones who had been in weddings or had their own weddings, all said that they loved Pen and Lens so much more than other photographers they worked with. Everyone thought they were so fun to work with and after looking at the final images, everyone (family & friends) were in awe! The way that Becky & Kaleb worked together and made everything seem so easy was incredible. Their energy made Matt & I so comfortable and we knew that the photos they were capturing were going to be perfect!

Our experience working with Pen and Lens was absolutely perfect!

Our experience working with Pen and Lens was absolutely perfect! Everyone from our bridal party complimented how wonderful Becky and Kaleb were to work with. Everyone who has seen our pictures has complimented them and how they truly captured our raw emotions! I am so excited to view them for years and years to come, allowing them to bring me back to the exact feelings of the day!!

All I have to say is WOW!

All I have to say is WOW! I was so worried about finding a photographer, how to pose, what to wear, and unpredictable Chicago weather. I was absolutely blown away by our experience with Becky and Kaleb. They made it so easy, and we had the absolute BEST day. As soon as we were in their hands, all my stress was gone. They found us locations based on what we were looking for and trenched through a snowy, cold day to get the best engagement pictures! Becky and Kaleb are also so easy to talk to and will work to get you exactly what you want. I am absolutely in LOVE with all of our pictures!!

I cannot stop looking at my wedding photos!

The compliments have not stopped pouring in since our wedding and receiving our wedding photos! Our families LOVED Kaleb and Becky, we heard ranting and raving all day about how professional they were and fun to have as photographers. Since we have shared some of our photos, we have been told how amazing it is that they captured us so perfectly! I chose Pen and Lens because Becky made me feel like an old friend rather than a client! Our favorite part of working with Becky and Kaleb was their calming presence when Max and I felt most nervous and anxious. They spent the most alone time with us on our big day and made us so comfortable in front of the camera, truly capturing our friendship and love for one another. Becky and Kaleb captured a special moment with my papa, and every time I look at those photos I am able to relive that moment. I tear up every time. I cannot stop looking at my wedding photos!

We can’t wait to basically wallpaper our home with our photos!!

We will have our images forever, so it was a big decision to choose a wedding photographer. We chose Pen and Lens because they had everything we wanted! Their images are bright & airy, they capture the candid moments, they are fun to be around, and made us feel relaxed! Since working with them, everyone has said how beautiful our photos are and that they should be in a magazine! Our bridal party had a blast with both Becky & Kaleb! My favorite part of our wedding with Pen and Lens was breaking it down on the dance floor with Becky ;) (but for real...going back and forth with email and knowing that she had everything taken care of!). We can’t wait to basically wallpaper our home with our photos!!
