    Couldn't recommend Penny enough

    Like many engaged couples of 2020, we married in an elopement ceremony and pushed our larger wedding farther down the timeline. Our elopement was planned within a month or two, and it was important for us to spend our money wisely since we also had a wedding in our future. I reached out to Penny with our ideas, and she helped me and my spouse develop a price and plan to exactly what we requested. She shot both our engagement photos, followed by our elopement less than a month later. We received both galleries within a month from each session. Penny was an absolute pleasure to work with, and I couldn't be more happy that we hired her to help us out in this crazy time. I truly feel that my husband and I gained a friend here in Juneau.

    Exceeds expectations!

    Working with Penny was amazing, she is so professional yet fun and makes you laugh and have a great time during sessions. She went above and beyond our expectations for our engagement pictures and our wedding pictures. Penny was very easy to communicate with, through text, email, phone calls, and facetime. Her work is amazing, but she is a more amazing person and we loved her from the moment we met her!

    Love Penny!!

    I loved working with Penny and would definitely hire her again! She was so flexible and accommodating with the changes necessary due to Covid, as well as the weather of the day. She made everyone feel super relaxed, and I absolutely love how our photos turned out, I was overjoyed when I first saw the sneak peeks! I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

    Obsessed With My Images!

    I did an outdoor boudoir session with Penny as a gift for my husband, and it was such an amazing experience! She made me feel comfortable and beautiful, and it was SO much fun! I'm obsessed with my images, they are just absolutely stunning. I would work with Penny again in a heartbeat!

    Wonderful!

    Penny is the best! We hired her to be the photographer for our wedding. She was punctual, professional, and very proactive in interacting with the venue and catering hosts, as well as members of the wedding party. Aside from the photos we posed for, she was very much in the background and we hardly noticed she was there. I did notice her taking photos at the reception as she was singing along to the music. She totally fit in with our crowd! The photos were incredible! Now that we have found Penny, she will always be our family photographer!

    Absolutely amazing!!!

    We are beyond happy that we met Penny! She is so personable, creative, talented, and fun. Her packages include so many extras (an engagement session! Credit to purchase products!), and every photo she has taken of us really captures us as people and a couple. Penny is a great person, and we really like hanging out with her. During all the shoots, she really just blends into the background and captures such candid and beautiful shots. We will hire her again for our anniversary shoots!

    Amazing Photographer + Stunning Images

    Working with Penny from Becoming Images was one of the best wedding decisions we made. We had the pleasure of working with her for multiple shoots (engagement, wedding day, post-wedding adventure shoot) and developed a close relationship with her over the year. Penny's energy was so positive, and we instantly felt comfortable to be ourselves and just 'play' in front of the camera. She takes care of everything so you don't have to worry about any of the details the day of your wedding.

    Most important of all, we absolutely love the images we received. If you're looking for stunning photos of you and your love just being yourselves in nature, this is where Penny SHINES. Her and her assistant, Erin, made all of the shoots a wonderful experience, and we would recommend Becoming Images to anyone in search of a wedding photographer. Thank you again, Penny!

    Amazing experience with priceless memories!

    Oh my, where do I start?
    Becoming Images did such an amazing job for my engagement and wedding! Penny is such a free and loving spirit full of life and will make your experience the best ever. I felt like I’ve known her for years within minutes of us meeting for the first time.
    Our cold engagement session in Maryland was absolutely perfect. Penny made us feel so comfortable and our pictures turned out beautifully. My favorite part of the way she photographs is how our pictures looked so organic and natural. During our sessions- the way she directed us never felt or looked posed once!
    When our wedding day approached, Penny reached out multiple times where we were able to talk about both of our visions and create our wedding day game plan. Our day went so smoothly and our pictures once again turned out beautifully! All our family had nothing but great things to say about Becoming Images. Our wedding was one big party and they were along for the ride capturing all of our most memorable moments! One thing I loved was that Penny’s second photographer was her husband. Being able to work with your spouse is so special and I love that they are able to do that!
    The day after our wedding we had our adventure session where my husband and I were able to take pictures with our horses at the farm we board at. It was so nice having this special time where it was just us after all the excitement from the day before. These pictures to no surprise turned out beautifully- just as our engagement and wedding photos did!
    Overall working with Becoming Images was easy, fun, full of laughter and memories!
    What I can promise you is that you aren’t doing Becoming Images a favor by hiring them for your most special day. You are doing yourself a favor. I would not have these beautiful photographs and memories if it weren’t for Penny!

    Choosing Becoming Images was one of the best decisions I could’ve made. Working with Penny has been such a great experience she has been a big part of my major milestone including graduation, engagement and wedding photos. She made us feel so comfortable throughout the whole photoshoot and was very creative in the way she executed her photography. I would definitely recommend Becoming Images to anyone needing professional photos done. Penny did such a great job with our photos couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. I look forward to more of her work in the future. Thanks Becoming Images!

    Penny, and her daughter Kaley, did an amazing job photographing our daughter Ashleigh's wedding. From the beginning, we were one of those "difficult" clients - a last moment changed wedding date, a cranky grandma who didn't want her picture taken, a low light venue (a barn in March), and a groom who was literally able to be there only for the wedding day.

    With all these challenges Penny went to work and joyfully made adjustments and put people at ease with her relaxed, professional, humorous, and encouraging demeanor. She was able to deal with the lighting situation and the photos are incredible. She knows how to capture the beauty of the entire event not just those "cliche" moments. Yes, we even have gorgeous photos of grandma! It is apparent that Penny has done this a "few" times and that we weren't her only "challenging" client. One side note, she never made us feel like a challenge, those are my words. Penny was full of grace, genuine, and just plain fun! She is a true professional who makes you feel like she is family.

    We were so blessed to have Penny, and Kaley, as a part of Ashleigh and Bryant's wedding day that when our second daughter was married three months later, Penny was our photographer of choice for that event also.

    The quality of the photos at Becoming Images are unlike any other. Not only does Penny take fun and artistic photos, but she makes them come to life with her own enhancements. This, among many other things, is why we choose Penny. We knew we wanted her professional photos that would last and that we could enjoy forever. This is her skill, and it really is an art form what she does with them. Thank you so much for all of the posed and candid photos you took at our wedding, we love them all.

    I spent hours scouring the internet for a wedding photographer who could deliver a specific candid, artistic style of photography without any luck. When I finally found one I liked, he was unavailable on my wedding date. He referred me to Penny of Becoming Images, the photographer he trusted and used for his own wedding. I immediately fell in love with Penny's online portfolio and knew she was the right person for the job. From first consultation to the final delivery of the photos, Penny always brought a joyful spirit and made everyone feel special and at ease. We were very pleased with the final results of our wedding photos. We've since then used Becoming Images multiple times for family photos as well.

    The absolute best!!

    Penny was an absolute delight to work with from the first moment we met her! She has an ease about her that calms all of your nerves on a busy, stressful day. She has a sense of humor that makes you deeply laugh, creating genuine smiles in all of your pictures. And the pictures she produces are INCREDIBLE! The lighting, the unique background shots, everying was perfect and we were blown away when we first saw them! Penny was an amazing addition to our day and fit in seamlessly with our families, feeling like a family member herself. Although our wedding may be over, we can't wait to connect with Penny again for all our future photography needs! Thanks for making our wedding a flawless and memorable day Penny!
