lovely vintage photoshoot.

so, this last weekend sean and i helped out my sister maddie and our friend lee with
a lovely vintage themed photo shoot. she is still editing pictures, but gave me a few
to post. i just have to say that i am so proud of sean for being such a trooper. he said many times that he felt like a nerd. but i had to remind him that he already is so the fact that he is willing to do this just makes him an awesome nerd.

here i am... waiting for my love... to pick me up at an old gas station..
2-2

he gets there....
1-2
and he greets me with a crate of oranges. WTF? you have been away
at war and haven't seen me in 10 months and all i get is a crate of oranges?
you went to freaking Germany. not Florida. sigh. where is my chocolate? and i put on heels for you! i never wear heels! oh well. let me take minute to get over it... hey lets go hold hands and frolic behind old stuff.

okay... after seeing this picture? i forgive you sean. for everything. 
4-2
isn't he sexy? you don't have to answer that. but you can if you want. 

3-2
all is forgiven. so let's go back to the gas station, you can sit on my empty suitcase,
and we shall eat beautiful oranges, stare off into opposite distances, and live happily ever after......

okay i am lame. but really, my sister and her work partner lee are incredible. and we had such a blast hanging out with them. i feel honored to know and be related to such talented people. you guys should check out her blog. tell her you know me and she will hook you up! haha jk, but no really she might. so do it. you will not regret it.

stay tuned for more pictures...
and possibly a stylized photo shoot giveaway from



by the way.. that suitcase belonged to my great grandma J. i miss her.

well, tonight i got attacked by the sprayer hose thingy in the sink. what do you even call those things? anywho. it was honestly like something that happens in the movies. and i totally froze too when it happened. i got soaked.

i was trying to clean out the bowls i used to make rice krispy treats. so i was all wet and sad. so i ate the entire pan. no really. i did. the whole thing.
Photobucket
 and while i was in the middle of making them. sean decided to disrupt my whole 
process and begged me to pour some of the marshmallow mixture on to his cocoa
puffs. i call them poo pellets.

little did he realize that this would throw off my whole marshmallow to rice
krispies ratio because i had already measured out 5 and 3/4 cups of rice krispies. i did it anyway. and it was chaotic. and crazy. and we made a huge mess in the kitchen
because he decided this as i was about to pour the mixture over my cereal.
then the whole hose thing happened. and i was all wet. and he just laughed
at me like i have some issues. which yeah, i do. but you know what makes me the
maddest? he didn't even eat half of his bowl.


so i could have used that marshmallow mixture on more rice krispies. and yes i love them. i have had the recipe memorized since i was like 5. and i put exactly 42 marshmallows in. sometimes 43 because i like to eat one when it is first starting to melt in the butter. and you have to use 1/4 cup of butter and it has to be butter or i can't believe it's not butter. nothing else though. and then i use 5 and 3/4 cups of cereal and then adjust accordingly depending on the crispiness level after i have added the marshmallow butter mixture. and if you leave the butter on too long it will burn and the rice krispy treats will be rock hard the next day. and if you don't have enough marshmallows then there is just too much crisp and it is no bueno. and when you are transferring the mixture into a pan, you must get your hands wet because it will not stick to your hands if you do this. anyway, he said i was obsessed and crazy and way too particular or something after i explained all this to him. but i wasn't really listening so i dunno. whatever.men.

4-2

okay, i remembered i said i would forgive you for anything after i saw this picture.
so i am doing that. breathe chloe. breathe.

This is SOO FAB!! What amazing pictures! I love that it has a vintage feel, so unique and nice to see for a change!! Love it!

crissy said...

Those are some great pictures. Your sister is talented, but it helps when you have such good looking models, too (at least that's what I think!)

One time, at our previous apartment, I was doing dishes (by hand) when the faucet/spout/thingy shot off the fixture. Water was spraying everywhere. I was momentarily stunned, which was enough time for me to get soaked, then I thought to turn off the water. That shut off the water, but I was still soaked, and pretty upset.
Anyway, sometimes things malfunction at the kitchen sink, which completely justifies eating a whole pan of rice krispie treats. :)

Michelle said...

umm LOVEEEEE these! I always think I'd want some of my engagement pictures to be a little vintage-y. sooo cute!

Love your outfit! And Sean's! and the whole look!

Allison said...

These ARE lovely- and you (and Sean) are absolutely STUNNING! Gosh, I can't get over how beautiful these are... and I love the whole setting!! EEK!

I'm Stacey... said...

Oh. My. Goodness. You two are SOOOO adorable!

Annie Kennedy said...

You always brighten up my Google reader Chloe! :) I love this shoot - I've been waiting for Maddie to post some more! Sean is definitely rocking that photo! I love the story you wrote along with it.

I am now hungry for rice crispie treats. I'm guessing they'd be called rice bubble treats here in Oz. But it just doesn't have the same ring.

:)

kelly ann said...

these are gorgeous photos! i love the styling, and your two are a ridiculously good looking couple. i especially love your commentary. and how serious you are about rice krispy treat making. more people should be like that when it comes to creating gooey, yummy, sugary goodness. ;)

lydia. said...

I love making rice crispy treats too.. We used to make them at the coffee shop I work at and would always eat them hot out of the bowl!

xoxoxo

Sarita said...

The best part of the photo shoots (besides the awesome pics) is your running commentary ... hilarious! I'm a big rice crispy fan too, so I totally get you on that one. and the poo pellets?! love it.

Michael & Mindy said...

Love, love, LOOOOVE these pictures. YOu are an awesome model. I know everyone is saying how they love these, but I really do. I saw them on your FB and couldn't comment, so I commented on Maddies' blog, and now I"m telling you. Love them. And I love that you said "work partner" about Lee. That would have been bad news if people thought they were partners. Or maybe not bad news? Maybe it would be cool. Like Modern Family. But probably not..

the hopkins said...

Maddie is seriously sooo talented. All of her pictures always turn out beautiful. And you and Sean look so adorable! You're so pretty Chloe. I really just love the vintage look... and the oranges in the crate! .. I don't think chocolate would have looked as good ;) Although I thought your commentary was very funny!
I love rice krispy treats too.... sounds like yours would probably be the tastiest ever!

samnhal said...

I want a photo shoot like this sooo bad! After I saw the pictures on your sister's blog yesterday I decided I wish I had done them for my engagements. That would have been so awesome. I'm a little bit obsessed with the 1940s. Your sister did such a good job. Umm, if you do do a giveaway, it should be a pretend giveaway, and you can rig it for me and just really pick me all along...because I totally want a photoshoot like this!

Micaela said...

these are BEAUTIFUL!!!! and yup, that picture of your husband is incredibly handsome! :)

Becca said...

Your clothes and scenery look like Anthro. I really like it. And your commentary is so funny- that's my favorite part.
Ha ha-funny story about that little spray hose on the sink. When I was younger I put a rubber band on the trigger part of that hose, and turned the hose to face the sink, so when my mom turned on the sink to wash dishes, she got sprayed right in the face! It was so classic. I still don't regret that evil deed, ha ha ha.

Have a great Tuesday!

Dennen and Hilary Frazier said...

Just wanted to let you know that I think you're super funny and witty. I found your blog through a friend, of a friend, of a friend (you get the gist). Anyway, keep it up I dig your humor.

kayla & tyler said...

oh...and you look absolutely stunning. such a classic beauty you are my love. i feel so cool to have such a hottie hot friend :).

hope you had a good tuesday girl!

Michele said...

Look at your SEXY hubby! Your sister does great work. I hope she is doing well with it all. Sean's poop berries look disgusting:)

*Lesli* said...

Dearest Chloe,
Everytime I look at you I think of my favorite celebrity would-be BFF, Juliette Lewis. :) Aren't you two just beautiful together. Love the vintage, and those dang oranges!

JMay said...

These pictures are so cute, you look like a model, seriously!!! & Sean looks adorable too!

I'm dying to see the rest of them :-)

Alexa Mae said...

omgosh!!! those are so amazing. i love love love them. they need to be framed all over your home. you are darling!!!

David and Shalynna said...

Chloe, I absolutely adore you. Your captions to your photos were hilarious. This would have been a perfect post had you just posted those photos (you are a gorgeous couple!) but you made it even more perfect with your funny descriptions!

I am obsessed with rice krispy treats too. Yes, I have made the mistake of not using enough butter and they were rock hard the next day. I still gave them to my piano students, though. :) One of my favorite desserts is a very, very fake fried ice cream dish. I simply make the rice krispy treats and before they harden and when they are still gooey I place them in a bowl with Bryer's vanilla bean ice cream. It is soooooo delicious. Try it!

Emily said...

1. I'm craving rice krispy treats way bad right this minute.
2. I adore those photos.
3. I'd be pretty mad too if my love made me wait at an old gas station.

Jenni said...

Awww I REALLY wish you and sean lived closer!!! I think we would be great friends :) Spencer and him seem to have a lot in common and I think you and I would NEVEr run out of topics to discuss! They may never make any sense and our thought processes may make it hard to follow at times, but seriously thats what makes it so exciting! Right!?
LOVE these photos!!!!
