Somebody pinch me -I must be dreaming! I've already gotten 10 wedding inquiries for 2014!!! That might not be a lot to some people -but its a heck of a lot to me! My goal is to shoot 15 weddings per year -it might happen sooner than i thought!
None of this could of happened without your support & referrals! I am very grateful! Ya'll ROCK!!!
I have invested so much time, training, & $$ (not to mention the sweat & tears -no blood) into this dream to make it a reality. So its time to take my Business to the next level! As of Jan 1st. my prices will be changing -this is the last month that my Wedding packages will start at $1,500!
I still can't do this without you guys! All the love, support, referrals, comments, Likes, hugs + high fives are always appreciated! So please keep em coming :)
I dont know why but i feel the sudden urge to give a few shout outs to some special people that have dealt with me during this milestone :)
My husband for putting up with countless boring convos about photography settings, equipment, workshops, idols etc. Thank you my love for believing in me and being the supporter of our family so I can follow this dream in hopes to build it into my career! I promise to continue to rub ur back with my free hand while I'm editing on the couch whenever you want! One day babe Im gonna take you on a trip to paradise. Just u & me with our toes in the water, ass in the sand -without a worry in the world! ;)
My family and friends who have been supporting me through this -mentally, physically, emotionally! I can't tell u how special it is that you read my posts! You've had faith in me when I didn't even have faith in myself and I love you guys so doggone much! You know who you are -I just want to pinch your cheeks n give you a slap on the butt!
My business wouldn't be a business if i didnt have Awesome Clients that allow me to be apart of one of the most important days of their lives! They put their trust in me to deliver and that my friend is golden! It's also great when they are so willing share their images & refer all their family & friends to me! Gotta Love them!
My amazing photog friends who have given me the opportunity to second shoot or assist them at their weddings! You trusted me to represent your business while gaining experience to build my own -and that is why I love this industry!
None of this would be possible without the grace of God! Thank you!
From the bottom to the top of my heart,
Here's a sneak peak of what's coming next week! :) love Thank You signs!
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.
