Dean and Gianna {Engagement – Part 1}

FILED IN: Engagements

The couple in today’s post may look very familiar to you, and that’s because they recently modeled for us for our Jeweled Inspiration Shoot. Well in today’s photos they are just themselves, Dean and Gianna. I am so happy that our path crossed with theirs, they have been such a beautiful couple inside and out to work with. And now, David, Christina and I feel lucky to also call them friends.

When we were planning this shoot, I asked Gianna to tell me more about her and Dean as a couple so we could determine the best way to capture the essence of “them” in their shoot. She told me, “We love spending time together. Since Dean is finishing up school and we don’t live together, we cherish every moment we have together! I love cooking for him and we love eating out. I really enjoy introducing him to lots of new flavors! He is so romantic and thoughtful, he brings me tulips or roses regularly and he helps me with daily chores around MY house! (thats romantic!) 😉 We do yard work together and absolutely LOVE being out in the sun, whether laying by the pool or having some blueberries on my front porch…we love that.”

Dean and Gianna, thanks for being such awesome models AND friends!! I hope we were able to capture just a fraction of how amazing your love is through these photos. And blog readers, stay tuned for the Part 2 post, where the rest of their story is captured.


Loved the yummy golden light here!

Gianna you’re beautiful!

Love this trio by Christina and David.
