Stacey + Ryan {Intimate Central Park Wedding / New York City Wedding Photography}

There are some days you just have to sit back, take a breath, and say to yourself (or in my case to the furry companions who like to sit on top of me while I work), “Holy shit, this is my life!!!” I feel like I’ve had quite a few of these moments this past summer, one of which came while reading an email from a bride in Perth, Australia, asking if I was available to capture her intimate Central Park wedding. It wasn’t so much the request that made me sit back and take in how lucky I am, it was the way in which she found me. While she has never seen an episode of Sex and the City, it was the SATC/Modern Fairytale inspired elopement shoot I worked on last summer that had caught her eye. SEO actually works, woo-hoo!!!!! In any case, I had such a blast with these two, their adorable 18-month-old daughter (spoiler alert, there is an equally adorable puppy to be found in this post!), and their family and friends. Whether or not Stacey has seen an episode of SATC, she pretty much rocked the “Carrie” look without even trying :)

I can’t decide which I like more, the look on Ryan’s face when he sees Stacey, or the look on their daughter’s face when she sees Daddy ;) Priceless…

And now we must take a moment to revel in the utter cuteness of these next few photos. While Stacey and Ryan were dancing under Bethesda Terrace, their daughter Charlie found a playmate on the steps :)

Continuing with our TV-inspired session, these next few shots remind me of the opening sequence of Friends

In all the times I’ve been to Grand Central, this is the first time I’ve stumbled across this wonderful art deco elevator!

One of the things I enjoyed most about working with Stacey and Ryan? They didn’t want the photos to end! After a dinner break, where they dined at the fabulous Daniel, we picked up where we left off for some nighttime photos around Manhattan…

First stop, Times Square!

We ended with a trip to The Highline. This has to be one of my favorite spots in the city, especially at night when the crowds are less and the views of the lights of Manhattan are wonderful!
