A question I get all the time is: Where should we go for our engagement session? And what should we wear? This series will give you some cliff notes to put together an engagement, anniversary or newlywed session that reflects you.
The shoot: A throwback to the glory days of train travel.
Ideal location: There’s really no beating Portland’s Union Station for vintage charm. Check out the marble arrivals hall and the great brick exterior.
Wardrobe: Since the station has vintage charm, why not incorporate some items with a vintage flair? I love the above coat (in a bright color, which keeps it modern still) and those T-straps. A bright lip is a great vintage touch, but can rub off if you do too much smooching during the session. I love this lipstain for a smudge-free look.
Accessories: Think accessories that will look natural but have a certain vintage charm. How about a fun umbrella in a bright color, an antique photograph or camera. You could even carry a small nosegay of flowers. Have fun!
