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 deep breath he took, eyes closed, as he got ready to open them and see you; the tear that fell down your dad’s cheek as he walked you down the aisle; the minute your eyes locked as you danced together for the first time as husband and wife…

You’ll feel those moments!

When the people you welcome into your home glance at the frames on your walls, they’ll feel it too—your young love turned legacy, and the influence of your relationship on the people you love most. Images that make you feel something, that bring you right back to this season of life AND an experience that keeps you feeling like you’re moving on to the next round in America’s Next Top Model? Yes, you CAN have both.

You’re looking for a photographer and you’ve got a lot going on.

We're here to help!

We’re an opposites attract kind of couple—so I’ll do just about anything to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera, and Kaleb will probably sneak a picture of me doing it. We work better together and get pumped when we work with couples whose love story sounds a little like Jim and Pam from the Office. When it comes to your wedding day, we’ll give you all the tools you need to avoid wedding stress and get the wedding images you’re craving.

Raves and Reviews

Alli & Matt

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!!

The Wedding Photography Process

4 easy steps to amazing wedding photos!

1

Let's Chat

Weddings are all about relationships and we want to know more about yours! Fill out the contact form below to get it touch, and we’ll set up a phone date! After we chat about your man, your wedding plans, and the vision you have for the images you can’t wait to hang on your walls, I’ll talk you through the booking process and get your date on our calendar!

2

Sweating for the Wedding

Getting ready for your wedding is a LOT of work, so we’ll team up with you and your coordinator to comb through all the details and put together the perfect timeline for your wedding day. We’ll also plan an engagement session (more like an extra excuse for us to hang out with you) so you’ll be comfortable in front of the camera when your wedding day comes!

3

Party Time

We’ll show up on your wedding day and jump right in, taking care of the photography logistics while you hang with your tribe. You’ll marry the love of your life and we’ll take a bunch of photos that will make you laugh out loud, smile ear to ear, and probably even shed a tear or two when you see them. (I always do.)

4

The Goods

While you’re getting used to calling him your HUSBAND, we’ll be choosing some of our favorite images from your wedding to share on the Pen and Lens Blog.

We’ll complete your final gallery and you’ll choose a few to order as framed prints or a gorgeous album, because those memories are too sweet to leave on a USB.
