If I put my phone into DFU mode (Using Dr. Fone trying to get my pictures back after they were deleted)... Will it ruin my jailbreak?

No. DFU doesn't do anything on its own. You can really only lose your jailbreak by upgrading/downgrading iOS (whether you're in DFU or not).

So if I do this mode and process, afterwards my jailbreak will still be there ?

That entirely depends on why you're entering DFU. Again, your jailbreak will most likely be fine if you aren't upgrading or downgrading.
