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.

Ryan and Tatiana were the BEST wedding photographers we could have asked for. We were SO happy with our wedding photos, and so happy with Ryan and Tatiana on our big day. They were extremely organized. They made sure to review our wedding day timeline in detail with us before the day, and followed the timeline seamlessly. They were so easy to work with - not demanding in any way. They were so thoughtful about every shot, and their creativity resulting in some AMAZING photos. Our portraits looked really natural vs. staged/posed. Their ability to capture the emotions of the day really set them apart from other photographers. Looking back at our wedding photos, it's nice to see photos that capture just how much FUN everyone had! We received countless compliments - not only on our photos themselves, but how great Ryan and Tatiana were on the day of (organized, patient, thoughtful, creative, etc). They had a list of every family portrait we wanted and made sure to capture every combination. They worked together as a team flawlessly, in perfect coordination and communication. Highly recommend!!

We absolutely love love love Ryan!!! Not only is he super down to earth and easy to work with, but he is a genius!! His shots are gorgeous especially with the use of his own popular method, the "Brenizer method". We put our trust in him on where to shoot at Central Park and we do not regret a thing. We also loved that he had previews of the shots he took by the end of the wedding night. In addition, we were able to receive and share these photos with our friends and family a couple of days after the wedding!! Ryan Brenizer is highly recommended by us! We cannot wait to see the finished product!

Ryan was amazing to work with. From the moment we saw pictures from weddings he had done, we knew there was something special about his talent, and that we had to have him shoot our wedding. His secretary is also wonderful and would answer all my questions I would email almost instantly. The photos are amazing and and we have received so many compliments from family and friends. Ryan was able to capture all of the fun and excitement of our special day.

Photography was my top priority, after the hall. My husband and I searched and searched, on what seemed forever. We booked Ryan and we are thrilled! He is very well known in he photography world, even having a specific method named after him. We loved our engagement pictures and what we saw from our Same day edits. He is a photojournalistic photographer so my guests and I were not bothered to be posed and stopped all night to take pictures. We didn't even know he was there! Ryan and his secretary Wendy, were quick to respond when contacted through email and/or phone call. I would have given 5 starts, but I didn't get all our pics back yet.

Ryan's photos of my wedding are amazing and I have gotten so many compliments on how unique my wedding photos are. Not your typical run of the mill photos every bride has photos of, he captured amazing shots that were full of emotion that told the story of my wedding. Ryan and his team were professional and great to work with. And my wedding was the weekend after hurricane Sandy and there was no problem at all. I also had Ryan photograph our engagement shoot and they are honestly my favorite photos ever of me and my husband! He's awesome, hire him!

Ryan takes beautiful photos. You will get a few shots unlike any other photographer out there. He did miss a lot of shots. He took shots of the grooms party but they must have not come out clear. Ryan's work for the bridal party was great but his assistant captured about 3 shots of the grooms party getting ready but none of them together. I requested table shots and none were taken. A lot of family members were missed out on as well. I would recommend Ryan for a small wedding and wedding party. He also put a laptop up and screened the shots he took earlier during the day which the guests thought was great, but I would have preferred his didn't.

So so happy we booked Ryan. I can't stop looking at the pictures. He was a professional throughout the day and I totally trusted that he would get all the right shots. He got that and more. He was very easygoing and flexible and really put you at ease. I know multiple people have asked for his information since seeing our photos. I'd definitely recommend him!

My daughter hired Ryan after meeting with many other photographers. She chose him after seeing his photos on his website. After the engagement shoot, she began to be apprehensive about her choice, but stayed with him for the wedding. Ryan and his girlfriend/associate arrived at the hotel late. I had not met Ryan before (mother of the bride). He did not even bother to introduce himself to me. At the actual reception I did not see Ryan for most of the day. He did not speak or make small talk. When taking actual photos, he snapped one and walked away. At one point during the day I asked his associate to have Ryan take a picture of a close friend. I was told he was on a break. The quality of the photos were not professional. Many guests at the party took better ones. The photos we received after a long delay did not even remotely look like the style he presented on his website. If he did not feel a rapport with our family, he should not have accepted the job.. His prices were high and his behavior was odd. Ryan was the only disappoint of the day. All of our other vendors were delightful.

RFB Photo responded with the following comments:

I honestly am so sorry that Dana feels this way about her 2011 wedding. We want all of our clients to be happy, and we did work very hard for her and her family … and were in fact early (my assistant was the one who helped her put on her wedding dress!) There is a subjective quality to all photography and after the engagement shoot I could see that our preferences were not aligned, and I should have simply said we should not work together. Instead, though, we did our best to make sure that her vision was realized, dutifully capturing well over 100 different types of photos from her extensive shot list. We thought that even though our visions had differed that as long as we followed her instructions to the letter we could make her as happy as possible. Unfortunately you cannot please everyone, but we try to do our best to. And now many years later not only have I merged with my wife and fellow wedding photographer Tatiana to provide the best customer service, we also have learned that sometimes the best thing we can do for clients is to educate and inform them, even if with perfect information they would decide to go with another photographer. We want the best experience not only for our clients but for everyone having their wedding photographed.

I don't even know where to begin with Ryan! We travelled from Scotland to NYC to get married and on our quest to find the perfect photographer we came across Ryan’s site. We were blown away just looking at his images and we knew that for our day this was exactly what we were looking for…
And we couldn’t have been more correct! Ryan is an extremely talented and creative photographer, who will capture shots that you never knew were even possible. From the very first shot he made us feel totally at ease and it is the first time we can both say we have genuinely enjoyed getting our photograph taken. We had a really intimate wedding with only 9 guests and by the end of the day Ryan didn’t feel like our photographer, he felt like a friend. He is a true gentleman who will add magic to your wedding day! Ryan is a true professional and talented genius in his field. DO NOT BOOK ANYONE ELSE- we have had some of our images back already to show at our wedding reception and they blew us and our guests away! (There were real tears all round!)
Through Ryan’s pictures we will be able to relive the special moments from our wedding day over and over and for that, we cannot thank him enough.
