40's era Pearl Harbor Stylised Wedding Shoot

Josh's grandparents have a gazillion picture albums.  Well, maybe not a gazillion but pretty close.  One of my favorite things to do when visiting them is to sit on their comfy leather chair and go back in time.  Back to when Josh was a baby (awww, right?!), back to his parent's wedding day, his grandparent's first home, the books just go on and on.  So far back that Grandma made a book for our family that includes their ancestors to the mid 1800s.  Those brown sepia images are one of my most valued possessions.  One of my favorite images is of Josh's great grandmother in downtown Portland in the mid 40s.  She looks stunning as she walks in confidence, hat, gloves, knee length dress and matching coat and what I imagine is bright apple red lipstick.  I love that image! I've always thought that era was so glamorous. Of course grandpa and grandma share stories of the war times and how hard life was but that picture speaks volumes of how resilient Josh's great grandmother was war time and all. 

Through the time behind my lens at this stylized shoot this particular image of Great-grandma Mowery was on my mind.  My hope was to capture that glamorous 40s area feel and quite honestly I felt I was able to do just that as the stylists involved did such an amazing job to make this Pearl Harbor theme come to life.  I am so appreciative to all involved!
