Vintage lovin’ at a closed-for-the-season amusement park (Portland, Oregon couple photographer)  

You know how kids latch on to something they love and get a little obsessed? Well, for me it wasn't My Little Pony or The Muppets or even Cabbage Patch dolls, it was the 1950s. (Ok, it was that other stuff a little bit too.) I don't know how it started, but for several years of my life, I liked to dress up in a poodle skirt and saddle shoes, decorate my room with cardboard records and a jukebox and dance around to Leslie Gore and The Supremes. My sweet parents took me to every '50s-style diner in the Portland metro area.

So you can imagine my excitement when Tony and Alena told me they wanted to do a 1950s-inspired couple portrait session. My inner child was beaming.

We shot the photos at the historic Oaks Amusement Park in Southeast Portland, which was closed for the winter, and was a perfect backdrop for the day.

I brought the era-appropriate pink dishes I bought at a garage years ago, a few old 45s and my vintage suitcases.

Alena and Tony brought their style and charisma. I had so much fun with them. They are both are so funny and full of rapid-fire pop culture references and witty observations. Every time I have a conversation with them, I walk away feeling like I'm funny and witty too.

Tony and Alena, thank you for being awesome friends and for spending a nostalgic Sunday morning with me.
