Deep in the Valley of My Heart: Crista + Robert's Wedding in New York

There’s so much to love about this real wedding we don’t even know where to start. First off, the setting, Onteora Mountain House in Hudson Valley is absolutely stunning. Secondly, we love that the bride is wearing converse – definitely helps with the awesome moves she pulls on the dance floor. Thirdly, the love in this real wedding is omnipresent: from the looks of love Crista gives her parents to the looks of love shared between her and Robert, to the hugs for their dog. There are so man other things we could point out, but we’ll let the images speak for themselves. Tatiana Breslow and Ryan Brenizer have truly spectacular styles (both were chosen in for our post on The Best Wedding Photographers of New York), and the fact that they’ll soon be merging their lives and their businesses just makes it all the more special.

From Ryan Brenizer: Crista and Robert are basically action heroes, with Robert trained in every sort of theatrical movement and Crista … well, none of Crista’s bridesmaids even batted an eye when she started walking around on her hands. But what matters is how much fun everyone had together, how deep and boisterous and joyful the connections, from streaming tears to bendy backs on the dance floor. And it’s what we all remember.

Just as importantly, I remember how much fun I had in my own partnership, shooting this with the incredible Tatiana Breslow. I will never get over the fact that the woman I fell so deeply in love with happens to also be my favorite shooting partner out of everyone I’ve worked with, that our eyes and our choices are so in sync. We are going to be merging not only our lives but also our businesses, and I am so excited for this future on every level, and to show the world what we can do together. It’s going to be fun.
