New York City Wedding Photo Inspiration

NYPL, Central Park, 5th Ave


The world is a funny place.


I met Molly in Paris where we were shooting at the Louvre, Palais Royale, and even a quaint chateau. We instantly connected and she asked me to join her in NYC for a dreamy fashion-based editorial as the BTS videographer. Creating a handful of amazing reels was a simple task, and looking at these images, you’ll see why.


Stylish and effortlessly chic, our model Leonela graced three distinct bridal looks to satisfy the New York City vibe. Starting with a traditional gown from Lé Lauriér, we stayed sheltered from torrential downpours in a well-earned corner of the New York Public Library. Neutral marble tones and the most delicious light poured over us for look number one.


If you’re heading to New York City for engagement photos or to propose (you know you want to), the NYPL is a must-stop location for your portraits. If you’re more interested in the urban look, we’ve got you covered there as well with a street-chic set in luxe party style.


Delicate florals spread across a cocktail-length gown—is there a more perfect combination for after you’ve said I do? You’ll have to convince me otherwise. The perfect look for engagement photos or for your after party, look number two is a doozy.


We’ve covered a chic gown at the library and a fun party dress on 5th Avenue, but no NYC editorial would be complete without a quick stop at Central Park. The arches of the Bethesda Terrace were home to look number three. Simple and elegant, this Audrey-Hepburn classic was perfect with a low chignon and some statement earrings from Hushed Commotion.


So there you have it! One city, three looks.m Which one will be yours?

*Also heavily recommended for any photo tour of the city is a stop at the Top of the Rock! Due to extreme weather, we were not able to enjoy the skyline view, but there is something jaw-dropping about standing on top of the world that you just don’t want to miss. Gentlemen, it’s the perfect spot to pull out that diamond you’ve been hiding.

The most stunning of days, with the clouds pulling back only to peek back in, desperate to be a part of the joy, M&S tied the knot. Their oceanfront vows were drenched in sun. S&M opted for a timeless aesthetic of pearl and champagne, which followed them into their reception at the Stone House, fresh blooms spilling from every pathway.

The words I hear whenever I see these images are the final sigh Mitch gave Steph as he completed his vows to her. Between shaky breaths he said, “Oh Stephie, I love you more than words can say.” And sometimes it’s as simple as that.
