Metropolitan Club New York Wedding | Shooting with Ryan Brenizer

This spring Ryan Brenizer invited me to come shoot a wedding with him at the Metropolitan Club in New York City. It was an amazing experience, seeing a guy named Top Ten Wedding Photographer work his magic in a setting far from the fields and mountains I’m used to shooting in. Needless to say, I enjoyed every second.

This was the most opulent venue I’ve ever seen, with a history and mystique that can never be replicated in Idaho. It was also very much like every wedding I’ve shot, at the heart of the day there were two people in love.

  • Paul Benjamin said:

    Absolutely loving these Sarah, it's interesting to see a wedding from another photographers perspective because your style is so very different, and complementary, to Ryan's.

    As for the wedding itself the history and grandeur of the venue while impressive, pales in comparison to the closeness and togetherness of both the couple and their families. You caught this perfectly, well done!
