It was something that we appreciated from the couple at the onset: the way body art binded them together. It was unique in a sense but something admirable at the same time.

The island provided the backdrop (and the sunset) for this wonderful celebration. Everyone teared up, none more so than the couple themselves. It only shows that amidst the tough exterior Jowel and Marilyn portray, both have soft spots dedicated only for each other.

Mayad celebrates with Marilyn and Jowel. We shoot the beginning of their long journey ahead, together.
