Our Love Story
Written by Janae Harker
Ben and I met at BYU-Idaho fall 2015. I gave a speech in our congregation the day before a church activity where Ben approached me intrigued because I mentioned that I enjoyed photography. The first time we held hands was after a paintball war and the first time we kissed was during Lord of The Rings. But one of the best moments we had was in front of the Tetons where he purposed to me. (Check out video he took of it).
Since then we began going on hikes and doing photography together. We got married on August 19, 2016 in the Salt Lake City Mormon Temple. Ben isn’t only a great photography buddy, he is my best friend in every single way. We decided to open Harker media in 2016 shortly after we were married because we love to work together on photoshoots, designs and marketing.
