Permission to be Beautiful
Leanne represents to me what I think most of aspire to. Imagine your high school sweetheart, who is now your husband and love of your life. Still young by all standards, yet enhanced by a dozen years of experience and wisdom shared with a partner. The love Leanne and her hubby have for each other can only be rich. So when Leanne called, planning to do a shoot in the studio as a way to have a gift for his birthday, we were thrilled. I found myself wondering what her intentions were for herself. After 12 years of togetherness, would she still feel as young and sexy as she did back in high school, when they first met?
My question was soon answered. Leanne arrived; a petite, serious and very pretty young woman. Delicate features graced a lovely face and we connected right away. This was her time to really let loose, to go ahead…be beautiful. It seemed as though as soon as she had that permission, first from me, then from herself, an emergence of breathtakingly perfect shots were born.
She always has been gorgeous. But today- she was glowing! Her subtle flare for excitement and adventure radiated through the lens.
I ponder sometimes about this. I wonder why women in general are resistant to flaunt their beauty. Coming to the castle and doing a shoot with Je Revele is one way to embrace your total being. Every glorious aspect. Leanne, I hope you feel affirmed. Your husband is about to fall in love with you all over again.

THE “LOVE STORY” OF JENN & DENNIS
There are stories about love, but then there are love stories. We’re talking about the timeless, tear-jerking, and sometimes hilariously funny love stories that movie scripts are made of. Bogart & Bergman…Harry & Sally…Jenn & Dennis.
When our bride and groom Jenn and Dennis came to the Castle for their engagement photo shoot, we immediately knew this would be one for the ages. Dressed in a hip vintage style, they played love songs on their instruments and were playfully romantic in the magical, yellow afternoon. Together since college, they were so comfortable in each others arms, spoke to each other without words and were comically romantic… in the most adorable way.
When they returned to the Castle for their viewing session appointment the following week, little did we know that we’d get to see the actual LOVE STORY. Yes, Dennis proposed to Jenn through a story. A Seussical storybook he created, to be exact.
Sounds cute, right? No. Not cute.
Simply put, it was the EPIC.
Dennis’s homespun book of memories and Seussical-style poetry outlined their love story in rhyme and romance. By page two, we reached for the tissues and were thankful the pages were laminated to catch some falling tears.
The amount of time, craftsmanship and attention to every detail of their milestones together was what made a love story into an actual story.
As told through pictures, words and souvenirs of their life together, it might just be the greatest love story we had ever seen. So then… we do what we do and photographed it.
This epic book begins with their childhood and continues into young adulthood.
Their lives documented beautifully page by page, I turned with increasing excitement.
Their love story documented in a Seussical-style poetry outlined so thoughtfully, with each page we became emotional, embarrassed as we held back tears. This was a proposal like nothing we’ve every known.
Engagement photos to follow. Stay tuned for much more. Swoon!
