An Engagement Session with a 70’s Vibe

Photographer Amanda K sent over this super fun engagement session for me to share with you guys. Jessi + John not only have genuine love + passion for each other, but share a love for the 1970′s.  Most of their wardrobe for this shoot was actually worn by their parents! How cool is that?!? They started the session at The Ace Hotel in Portland, Oregon which was a perfect location with the record player in the room and even a bunch of 70’s albums they got to play. :) I hope you enjoy their 70′s inspired session!

This pink dress is the ACTUAL dress John’s mom wore on her wedding day as she left for her honeymoon. How perfect is that!

Check out the entire engagement session here on Amanda K’s Blog. Thanks for sharing your work with us Amanda and congrats to Jessi + John! Can’t wait for your wedding.
