Ilana and Grant had a fantastic wedding at the Renaissance Westchester Hotel on Saturday, made even more special by a lot of faces familiar to me. More to come…

Krystal is an animal lover, so to have some fun with wildlife we went out to rural … midtown Manhattan.

Michelle and Michael are serious about vintage style, and it shows in this engagement shoot by Tatiana and I at June Wine Bar http://ryanbrenizer.com/2015/05/vintage-engagement-shoot-at-june-wine-bar-michelle-and-michael/

Sabrina and Kumar's wedding was a fantastic 1920s-style affair filled with great little details -- for example, her "bouquet" is really a collection of broaches from their loved ones. They also are extraordinarily nice people and know how to rock a sunbeam.

I have a big announcement coming soon -- hopefully later today, but we'll be doing about 20 hours of wedding photography today and tomorrow, so we'll keep it to "soon." Watch this space!

Shot on an Apple Watch … I kid.

Thanks to Tatiana for setting this up, lighting and processing this shot, June Wine Bar for being so accommodating and Michelle and Matthew for being awesome in general. More to come soon!

A wonderfully sweet moment from Elysa and Anthony's wedding at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden yesterday. It's a crazy weekend for us … I'm getting ready to leave for an elegant Manhattan wedding today, while Tatiana is flying to San Diego to shoot an over-the-top Indian wedding. Tomorrow, I join her there. And after we shake off the jet lag it's my first workshop at our Brooklyn studio!

A busy next few days for us … OK, next six months. But we started it off today with beautiful morning weather and a great couple able to wake up early enough that even midtown wasn't filled with people.

Stephanie woke up at 2:30 a.m. for this. That is some serious dedication, and greatly appreciated. I do like sunrise shoots, but also completely understand people not being thrilled with the resulting make-up call-time.

Eliminating clutter and showing the "midtown courtyard" feel of Bryant Park with the angle; keeping from getting too dirty with the D750's tilt-screen.

After more than two years, we're back in the U.S.: http://ryanbrenizer.com/workshops
 Wedding photography is hard for countless reasons. It's hard because you work in circumstances completely out of your control. It's hard because it's the only sort of photography where even the 500th-best shot you took that day matters. It's hard because you just wanted to take pictures…

I have been proud and excited to be a beta tester for the latest version of Lightroom, and have written a review of my experiences with the new features. I was completely surprised by my favorite features and how they changed my usage:

It was a nice day at Kristin and Bob's wedding, but a nice April day, and the wind pushed the temperature well under the comfort zone, but we had our fun.

Stepped in for a second while helping Tatiana with her shoot of Kim and Andrew. My real hobby is doing things the hard way, even for subtle effect.

You keep hearing about the world's largest buildings in Dubai, but they never tell you how big the flowers are.

I'm here for gulf photo plus, and I am excited to be here, ready to get back to teaching, and happy that things are going our way. It was the sort of winter that everyone thinks is out to personally get them, and after our first three flights out of the New York area were cancelled … each after several hours of delay or six total hours of tarmac time … we thought we had a good case.

But we're here, our luggage has finally joined us, and I've completed one lecture, one panel discussion (as one of the "Three Under 30," which was a huge compliment to someone born in the Carter administration), and now on to five days of workshops.

We've been busy shooting and transforming our business and flying around the world, so it's been almost two years since I've given a workshop in America or even to an audience who primarily speaks English. That will change soon. I am having such a great time reworking my syllabus for the deeper digging you can do in multiple-day workshops, and I'm ready for more.

Teaching is my first true professional love. I grew up seeing how many of my parents' students came back, thanking them for guiding and changing their lives, knowing that these people would change others'. Now I see so many of my former students absolutely killing it out there, growing and sharing themselves, pushing what wedding photography can be. Heck, I even sat in on a lecture in November where I heard one of my personal anecdotes repeated back to me! We're here for such a fleeting moment, it's wonderful to think that we can leave something behind bigger than ourselves. Whenever I get discouraged or frustrated (which happens to all of us, especially during Tax Paperwork Season), the thought that this job actually has real, meaningful consequences every time we show up for work keeps me going. Watch this space, I'm going to be scouring my calendar for U.S. workshop opportunities very soon.
