An alternative to this would be a 6D and the 85 1.8 and the 135L. With portraiture, you may not need the AF system on the 5D3, saving you some additional cash, providing you a 2nd lens for your budget. If you want to build your lens collection for portraits but also get a better camera, this would be the route I would head toward.

6D/85 1.8/135 works well for indoor sports, too.

For a lot less you could buy a used Hasselblad or Bronica outfit and market yourself as being traditional with "hands on" personal service.
