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 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.

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.

The bottom line is: I don't know how anyone could get married and NOT hire Ryan Brenizer!!!

Despite living in Los Angeles where there is certainly no shortage of talented wedding photographers, no one we looked at could hold up against Ryan's photos. He is the master of composition; somehow capturing so much emotion with the perfect angle and lighting even for those split second moments that flash by at weddings. We didn't book our wedding date until we knew he was available, and we trusted him 500% even before we talked to him on the phone (and this was WAY after we already put down our deposit)!

And as for the day of (and the engagement shoot beforehand), we were even more blown away by his professionalism. He went waaaay above our already high expectations of him - he even helped to coordinate some big wedding events, such as the first look and grand entrance. Ryan was always present for all the important wedding events, even the ones that were happening off to the side and were not pre-scheduled. He also had some mad ninja skills, managing to get his camera in my face without me even noticing he was there! Ryan was so on the ball the entire night, knowing exactly the right moment for all our requested photos and helping us to balance everything. And he was absolutely game for any type of photo we wanted to try.

And the amazing thing is that his prices are SO reasonable for the quality; he ended up being cheaper than some other local photographers even after adding in his flight and hotel! I really can't recommend him enough. His brother, Doug Brenizer, assisted Ryan at the wedding and also did an amazing job taking photos, as well as putting us as ease and totally getting along with all our guests as well. After the wedding, my husband and I couldn't stop talking about how much fun we had, how great everything was, and how amazing of a job Ryan & Doug did! They honestly made our entire day.

Absolute genius. If he's not available on your date, MOVE YOUR DATE. Seriously. He's provided the best professional wedding photos I've ever seen, and I could absolutely not envision booking anyone else. He's a genius with light and angles and amazing at capturing moments. Don't miss out! I'm thrilled beyond belief with our photos. Plus we got an engagement shoot included, which is great for getting you used to being photographed professionally.

Plus - SUPER nice and totally unobtrusive.

Ryan and his assistant have been absolutely incredible. They responded very quickly to any question I had and made sure to be thorough to ensure they got every picture we wanted. Even though it rained the entire day of the wedding and the day before, we are sure that Ryan and his assistant were able to get some truely amazing shots. Ryan's work speaks volumes about the type of photographer he is. What we loved about his work was that as you look through images of weddings he's shot, you feel like you were at each and every one of them. He's able to capture the emotions of everyone perfectly and takes some amazing "in the moment" shots. We can't wait to get the final images back from him! The preview he's sent have already knocked our socks off!

We are so pleased with our wedding photography so far. We have seen some of our photos already as he downloaded some so we could see them in a slideshow at the reception! He was very easy to work with, and responded to my emails very well. He takes a lot of candid shots, so if you want more posed formals, you have to ask, but you are better off having a more traditional type wedding photographer then. His photojournalistic style is really unique and he has made us look fantastic. He is very knowledgeable about all things photography, as he reviews equipment and talks about his methods on his blog. We can't wait for the rest of our photos. As part of his package we were able to do a day after shoot with just the two of us, which allowed for more interesting shots, and by then the rain had gone that had caused a blip in our wedding day. We were very impressed with Ryan and his assistant Tim. They also helped out with coordinating people during all the craziness and knew where to be at every moment, so I am sure they didn't miss any of the great photo opportunities.
