Brooklyn, New York Wedding Photography | Ryan and Tatiana’s wedding ceremony at Frankies 457

I have said it before and I will say it again. It is always an honor to be asked by colleagues to document their wedding. I have been privileged to be a wedding photographer for other wedding photographers many times before but this is the first time both the bride and the groom were not only very talented but also world renowned wedding photographers. Double the pressure. Actually triple the pressure if you count all the world class wedding photographers in the audience that day in New York City. The day Ryan and Tatiana,  known as The Brenizers, called me to inquire if I would be the photographer for their wedding ceremony in Brooklyn, New York was one I won’t soon forget. I actually met Ryan and Tatiana in 2013 separately but only a few months apart thanks to the Foundation Workshops. I knew who Ryan Brenizer was in the photographic community due to his talent as a New York City wedding photographer but more so for his well know photographic technique the Brenizer Method. Tatiana and I met in Mexico. She was a student at Foundation Workshop in San Miguel on the team I led with Huy Nguyen. So you can imagine how I felt the day I got that call to be their wedding photographer.

There was no reason to feel intimidated as this would not be my first time doing this. I have been asked and trusted by other friends that are photographers to document their big day but the pressure never seems to diminish. I often think to myself how hard my job is. It’s like each and every weekend I shoot I have to play for the championship. I can’t just write off a bad performance and say-“there is always next week”. However, when half the guest list includes some of the best wedding photographers in the world the pressure seems to go up a notch or two knowing all those eyes will be on you. It is always an honor and a challenge I welcome however. I was asked to be a part of a team that would be documenting this event. It consisted of two days and I was asked to document Ryan and Tatiana’s ceremony and dinner for close family and friends on day one while my good friends and amazing photographers Lanny and Erika Mann of Two Mann Studios had the task of documenting the crazy dance party for the rest of their crowd the following day. Photographing a wedding in New York City was always a dream of mine so it was perfect that this was to be my first one....
