The Studio Ostendo approach to photography

For us, wedding photography is a delicate dance between observing the moments that unfold before us and giving natural direction to ensure clients feel comfortable and look their best in photos. We want couples to see their images and feel the same way they felt in those moments, to see themselves and the people they love written all over their photographs. We make choices with intention on wedding days, getting to know couples and what’s most important to them so it’s reflected in their images. Together, we create images that feel natural and full of life. Like a well composed symphony, our photographs draw you in and fashion a strong story. From the smallest intimate details to the most emotionally charged moments, the photographs we create are a spirited recollection of the most cherished moments on a wedding day.

Behind the Lens with Studio Ostendo, photographers in action

2023 was our first full year living in Idaho and we loved photographing couples and weddings there! We’ve been working in Idaho for a few years, and this year we had a blast collaborating with old friends in the wedding industry and making some new ones as we photographed weddings this year. We also traveled back to the Chicago area for some beautiful fall weddings in 2023. Whether we’re giving direction to couples in front of the camera to create beautiful photographs, testing light for each other, or doing one of the many other tasks that go into smooth wedding days (i.e. fluffing dresses, drying off bouquets, grabbing drinks, re-pinning veils, etc.) you’ll see us doing anything to get the shot!

This year we also got to celebrate alongside some former clients (AND take the dance floor together)! When couples refer us to friends and family who are getting married, it is such an honor. 

Unveiling Idaho's scenic backdrops: amazing photography locations we've been to this year

For photographers whose roots are the cityscapes of Chicago, it was so fun to explore new places in Idaho for weddings and engagement sessions this year. From mountain tops to cliffs at sunset, from Boise to Bear Lake, we photographed weddings close to home and took a few trips for work this year. We photographed hometown weddings, destination weddings, and even an Airbnb wedding this year! We hiked to a hidden lake for a destination engagement session and photographed some couples at home. Whether close to home or far away, each breathtaking location told a story and it was a privilege to capture those stories for our couples.

Photographers in Idaho who love what they do

I say it all the time—we have the best job. Photographing weddings means so much more to us than delivering photographs. Weekend after weekend we get invited into a couples’ best day and experience it alongside them. We get to chat with parents and grandparents as they watch their kids get married and their families grow. We talk to best friends, to sisters and brothers, and we hear stories of friendships and relationships that have transformed them, made their lives better. We see couples become parents and reconnect to photograph their babies and growing families. This year we’ve grieved with couples who have lost loved ones—grandparents and parents we met at their weddings—and we’ve seen the value and cherished gift photographs are in hard seasons of life. We are truly grateful for the work we get to do. 

To all our couples and clients, THANK YOU for trusting us to photograph and tell your stories.

Much love, Becky & Kaleb.

I'm a Co-founder and Lead Photographer at Studio Ostendo.

Wedding photography is my heartbeat. For me, it holds the perfect tension between creativity and authenticity, observation and connection. In front of my camera clients transform to friends, and behind it you'll usually find me tearing up, cheering you on, or holding my breath because of the raw goodness of the moment at hand.
