I first met Dean a couple of years ago, when we were both part of a mission trip to Guyana in South America. We went down there to build a roof, for Dean as Co-Owner of Shirk Brothers LLC it was a simply task, but for me with no experience in construction it was rather a challenge. I think I spent a good part of the trip taking pictures.
After that Janae and I were part of an internship at the Gateway House of Prayer, where we ended up sharing a two hour set with Dean. It was at one of our sets that we met Jaina for the first time. I think they were just friends at the time, but you could tell by the look in their eyes that they had a “thing” going on.
Since we stopped helping with that set and since they started dating, we saw them as guest at a few weddings that we shot last year.
For Janae and I, sometimes we see couples and we wonder if we will get to photograph their wedding. Today here we are capturing their engagement pictures, and their summer wedding is in our calendars! So excited for you two guys! Dean & Jaina’s engagement photos were captured at Dean’s home. We love it when clients chose locations that are significant to them. What a beautiful home complete with a hammock, tie swing, and pond. We hope you enjoy these images just as much as we enjoyed taking them.
