Ryan Brenizer

New York City
Serendipity worked out pretty well for Ryan and Tatiana Brenizer. Both wedding photographers with more than 10 years experience each and more than 1,000 weddings between them, they didn't mean to fall in love with the photographer whose work and style fit most seamlessly with theirs ... it just kind of happened. Realizing that they loved not just each other but the work they produced together, and that they are one of those weird couples who like being around each other literally all the time, they decided to merge their business in 2016, giving a two-for-one effort for clients not just on the wedding day, but with service and communication throughout the entire planning process and beyond.

Ryan comes from a photojournalistic background, having covered each U.S. president since Clinton. During his coverage, he has been blessed by the Pope, stared down by Muhammad Ali, manically gained at by Stephen Colbert, and had his photos of Smokey Robinson featured the in Kennedy Center lifetime tribute ceremony. He teaches wedding photography in lectures and workshops around the globe, with a specialty in "what to do when everything goes wrong." He is ranked as one of the Top 10 Wedding Photographers in the World by the two top industry magazines, American Photo and Rangefinder.

Tatiana has worked in essentially every aspect of the photography field, from editorial portraiture to corporate product campaigns, but found her love in weddings more than a decade ago. She has an extremely long list of overjoyed clients, with a lifetime perfect 5.0 customer service score, and a tradition of amazing photojournalism and innovative, playful portraits.

Together, Ryan and Tatiana are the only independent photographers to document the U.S. presidential candidates the last time they meet before the election, and have photographed weddings around the world, including Chile, Vietnam, Singapore, Hong Kong, Ireland, the Bahamas, and many more, as well as essentially every street corner in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Couples who want to document all the fun, zany, poignant, and not-so-traditional moments of their wedding: You've found your photographer match!

My goal is to capture your offbeat, wonderfully unique wedding no matter where in the world-or HOW in the world-you're celebrating. As a photojournalist who fancies plenty of creativity mixed with emotional candids, I'm able to deliver one-of-a-kind shots. My clients lean toward the nontraditional: Quirky, joyful, adventure-driven celebrations and photographs that make you look twice. And if you're not quite sure what you want to do for your wedding yet, I have dozens of ideas up my sleeve. Together, we'll brainstorm something that's absolutely magical.

I'm based in both New York and California, and work across the U.S. and worldwide. When not photographing engagements, weddings, and elopements, I work as a travel and humanitarian photographer in remote parts of the globe. I've worked on every continent except Antarctica, and rarely say no to an adventure. Some of my favorite hobbies include scuba diving, camping, cliff jumping, and hiking-many of which often make their way into my clients' photos, especially when we share common travel interests. After living in several different countries and photographing adventurous couples in dozens of parts of the world, I know there are still many adventures yet to come! So let's collaborate and capture something that's completely and utterly you.
