Meet Ali and Ryan. They are fun-loving foodies who both work in the industry, as a general manager and chef! For their engagement photos, we wanted to spend time in an environment that felt natural and comfortable for them. Ryan graciously set us up at Gentilly, a beautiful New Orleans-inspired restaurant in the West Village.
After starting the afternoon with a glass of prosecco, we headed to the kitchen, as the culinary couple whipped up meal! Ryan took the lead and Ali was his dedicated sous chef. It was all a very serious and rigid environment, of course.
Teamwork makes the dream work, people!
Ali expertly mixed some cocktails and we all enjoyed a drink or two, myself included! There are many reasons why I loved hanging out with Ali and Ryan, but the well-made drinks were definitely one fun reason.
These two had "sexy eating" down perfectly. They were pros! :)
After a great conversation and wonderful meal, we went for a walk around Greenwich Village! It's official. Cooking themed engagement photos are my favorite.
Ali and Ryan definitely have a carefree and fun relationship. They laugh easily together and it's contagious! But it's clear that a strong foundation of love also exists amidst the lighthearted joy. I can't wait for their wedding in October!
