Its not always true that middle school relationships are just puppy love -Arriell and Brad are an exception to the rule! They have been going steady since the 8th grade! -wait do people even say "going steady" anymore!?! Arriell and Brad have the sweet story of how the basketball player & cheerleader fell in love! Aww kind of like Love and Basketball -love that movie! It's sweet to think that they have each others past, present, and future. Thirteen years later they are planning their wedding at the gorgeous Sweet Pea Ranch and I am so excited to be apart of it! I know that their wedding is going to be so much fun if its anything like their engagement session. They are the sweetest couple ever and its so beautiful to see that after so many years together their love is still so vibrant and fresh!
You guys are so awesome to climb these rocks for me!
I adore this photo because Brad embraced Arriell all on his own! Even though half of her face was covered its still a super sweet photo!
And this my friends... is what true love looks like!!!
You guys are naturals!!!
I'M JANELLE MARINA
Wife, Mama Shark, + Photographer.
Most days, you'll find me in mismatched socks and a top knot, working behind my computer with a smile on my face, listening to Zac Brown Band and R&B
--or, dancing in the kitchen with my 3 littles and hunka husband, seeing who could come up with the coolest dance moves. I'm a wedding photographer, West Elm lover, aspiring advocate for our buddies with special needs, and a Certified Dreamer since 1986. We live in a cozy city in Southern California and are always up for a good adventure. I enjoy telling stories with my camera, grubbing on spicy food, and solving the latest Dateline case.
