The Inn At Newport Ranch Engagement Session | Leslie + Lejf | Part I
He was a wild hair metal rock ‘n’ roll radio DJ who worked a second job in Special Education classrooms. She was a show-stopping singer who inspired the world around her through teaching and her own non-profit foundation (Peter Pan Foundation). Leslie’s mom was a teacher at a school that he frequently helped in. One day, she said you should really meet my daughter. He thought to himself, this isn’t a hook up, I mean, what’s she going to do, have Leslie come to the school for a blind lunch date? YES!! That’s exactly what happened. They were introduced on a random Tuesday during a lunch period. Lejf who was sitting at a lunch table with his students was caught completely off guard by this blond bombshell. She sat down and immediately stole his heart. The universe had spoken, then were meant to be.
Lejf describes it like this: “Some loves are like a golden brick road or a carriage ride to a castle in the sky. Others find a more appropriate metaphor in a sports car raging full-throttle down a long clear stretch of highway. Still, others wind across deserts of time and through thickets of fate to emerge with hands and hearts stronger forged from the journey. This was the latter, yet from the very first moment, the destination was always to be together."
We spent several hours together frolicking around The Inn at Newport Ranch creating magic with their vibrant personalities and beautiful love story. My favorite part was when they dressed up like rockstars. Don’t take my word for it though, you must see for yourself. So I’ll stop talking and let ya scroll through these awesome photos!
Oh, and part II of this series will come out next week. Stay Tuned!
