Marlaina and Tyler met when they were in middle school. One day, as they passed each other in the hallway, Tyler handed Marlaina a note containing his phone number. She made the call and they became a couple shortly after that. When they went to separate high schools, the two had to part ways, but they remained good friends. After graduation, they both realized that friendship was great, but they wanted something more. Rekindling their relationship felt natural and they fell more and more in love with each other. It wasn’t long before Tyler was ready to propose. The sea turtles were hatching the night he took his love to the beach and asked her to be his wife as the sun set over the beautiful Florida coast. Of course, she said yes! For their engagement shoot, this gorgeous couple went back to the beach to capture these sultry, sexy couple’s portraits. We just love the styling, the setting and the true love you can see in Marlaina and Tyler’s eyes.
