This post is bittersweet - this engagement session was done by Blink Photography here in my hometown of Bend, Oregon. I love the couple's great retro style and sweet shots taken in the back alleyways of downtown Bend - perfect for this week's vintage theme. The sad news is that the groom Justin has been missing under "mysterious circumstances" since August 1st. Please pray for his safe return.
From Blink Photography: "I had the pleasure of working with this amazingly stunning newly engaged couple! Their pics are my new all time faves from her hair done up in a perfect bee-hive do, his fun sneakers, and tatted sleeve, and their super cute engagement story over a chess board! The sad part of the story is that this is the missing man in Bend… that being said, I am only posting these pics in hope that someone can see other views of Justin, see his smile, different angles, etc… enjoy seeing the love that these two definitely share and please if you have any tips, clues, or ideas… call the Bend Police Department immediately! We continue to pray that he is found safe and this story can have a happy ending!"
Drinking out of glass Pepsi bottles in front of a vintage Pepsi mural? Adorable!
"these next ones are just a sample of the fun we had at the “maytag” store…"
"Rachelle has an amazing repertoire of vintage items that proved very useful." - The couple was supposed to be moving to Alaska.
