We are Jacob and Jenny Dean, and this is the quick version of our story to share with you.
Before the 2006 opening of Jacob Dean Photography, we both attended and graduated from Clemson University. We met through mutual friends and knew we were meant to be together. On July 10, 2004, we married on the hottest day EVER with an indoor ceremony at Fort Hill Presbyterian Church in downtown Clemson and amazing reception at the Owen Pavilion at Clemson's Madren Center. We now have two precious boys, Wylie and Harris, and when we are not taking pictures, we enjoy spending time together as a family.
We have been in business since 2006 and have enjoyed every friendship we have made with clients along the way. We are located in Clemson, South Carolina, and some of our favorite places for photo sessions are the South Carolina Botanical Garden, Clemson University, and anywhere that is special to our clients.
