Ahhhh! We just received our engagement photos!!! About 3 weeks ago, Tanner and I packed up the ’52 and headed out to wine country to meet up with two of the most incredible photographers!
Adam and Laura Queen from A Plus L Photo are a husband and wife duo that recently relocated to Portland, Oregon. Their romantic style and ability to capture light and intimate moments made them the perfect fit for us. When I first reached out to Laura with the proposition of a vintage, rockabilly themed shoot, she was all in! Over the next month we went back and forth trying to determine the best time and location for the shoot. In the end we figured that a sunny, Sunday evening down an old dirt road would be just the ticket.
As the day grew near we realized that our “sunny Sunday” was turning out to be more like a “sun stroke Sunday!” With the temperature reaching 95+ we knew this was going to be a bit of an ordeal, but we were a couple on a mission! I gathered up all the face powder I could find, along with extra deodorant and told Laura if they were still down, we were all in.
We decided to meet at a little diner out an old country road and from there, just drive until we came to a dead-end spot that could work for our shoot. Just as we were reversing to leave the parking lot, a coworker of mine walked up to the car! As soon as he found out what we were up to that day, he immediately offered up his friend’s winery as a shooting location! He said they had just closed up tastings for the day and he would call ahead and tell them we were on our way. Just like that we had an entire winery to ourselves!
Bergstrom Winery ended up being more beautiful than we could have imagined! Thanks to the amazing generosity of the winery’s owners and my incredible coworker, our engagement shoot location was absolutely perfect. If you find yourself in Newberg, OR, make sure to check them out!
Just a few more!! Fun fact: The dress below was found in my grandmother’s house after she passed.
Hope you enjoy the photos! If you are in need of amazing photographers check out A Plus L Photo. I couldn’t recommend them more!
