Pen & Lens

We’re wedding photographers. We’re passionate about photographing couples and their relationships with authenticity, love, and care. Our photographs don’t just document a significant life event or another year gone by—they seek to capture heart.  We love telling the story of a wedding day, knowing that story will be a timeless reminder of the beautiful beginning of our couple’s journey through life together.

We design logos and brands, design advertising campaigns, and build websites for clients both big and small. Our heart for design lies in treating clients with love and respect, while conveying their messages with clarity and precision. Our work portrays our clients’ ideas, values, and motives as clearly as possible while staying true to their personality.

Brand Family

We believe in service, and there are many areas of people’s lives we want to serve. Kaleb created our brand system to expand with our business. Each section of our brand family represent a different area of unique service. This helps us distill our messages in each and lets you participate in the areas that apply to you most.

Why "Pen & Lens"?

Pen, for the sketchbook process and artistry that takes place when Kaleb takes his ideas for branding, design, 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.

Kaleb & Becky

Aka. Team Dean

We are college best friends turned soul mates, now a husband and wife photography and design team. It started as a friendship, built during countless hours drinking juice pouches in the lobby of our college dorm. Kaleb proposed in a photo booth in our favorite city one cold November, our friends and family gathered twice in one week on opposite sides of the country to celebrate our marriage, and we’ve been living life together ever since. We love working side by side and supporting each other’s unique gifts, so being in business together is a dream come true.
