Sylvette and Nate~ Engaged

posted by Kelly

Oh man oh man…I have been dying to get this post up. We finally have a little breathing room after the last five weeks of traveling. I am ready to pump out some posts and I am thrilled that Sylvette and Nate will kick it off.

You know you have only great things ahead in a relationship when your first conversation sets you up with an inside joke. All we have to say is “muscle tank” and the four of us will bust up laughing. Not sure what we are talking about…good…you aren’t in the loop my friend. I can’t say enough incredible things about Sylvette and Nate. It was a shame we even had to label our afternoon with them as “work”. We absolutely laughed ourselves silly and what started out as a two hour shoot turned into four hours followed by an awesome dinner together. Good times, good times.

Sylvette is one foxy mama. If you are a Modern Family fan then you may find a striking resemblence between her and the character Gloria. Sylvette is a natural with the camera. Some people take a little longer to warm up but from the first frame Sylvette was hitting it. Not to be outdone, Nate was no chump as her arm candy. Together they gave us some images we are tremendously proud of. Let’s get started, this is a long one!

Can we just point out how stinking funny we must be. (blows hot puff of air on fingernails and rubs them on shirt) I mean look, we were killing it with Sylvette and Nate.

Man is drawn to hot woman…broom is clearly in the way. (Nate was killing us with the roll playing.)

Change of scenery. This is the park where Nate proposed to Sylvette. There was a really cool tangled tree, dome enclosure that we set up camp at.

Nate is what we call….talented. He knows his way around a guitar and serenaded us all for a little bit while Sylvette got her dance on.

Outfit change and on to some of my all time favorite pictures as the lighting went from great to AMAZING. First a few grass shots..because, well…the grass was insanely lush.

On Sylvette and Nate’s engagement questionnaire she said that they describe themselves as each other’s puzzle pieces. They fit perfectly together. I asked her to play off that theme and create a little puzzle for the shoot. Her nickname is SeeBee so it was only fitting to make a good old fashioned declaration of love.

Brief pause before the dreamy lighting shots. Nate thought it would be funny to come up with a go-to “pose” for the photoshoot. This was the pose.
