Alexandra & Mike
Brian and his assistant made our busy and hectic day seem so much more calm. He is so warm and funny and made the day so special and fun. Brian is truly an artist and creative when it came to taking our pictures. He also listened to what I wanted which was great. Not only is he an amazing photographer but a wonderful person too! You must use him for your wedding!
Sarah & Phil
If there was a 10 out of 5 option I would give this to Brian Friedman – he was more than excellent – he was magnificent. I received my photos yesterday and just know I will be the envy of all my British bride friends as the photos Brian took for Phil & I are out of this world – something I have never seen here in the UK. Original, classy, savvy, romantic – just everything.
Such a fantastic guy too, made us feel relaxed and comfortable and his talent is second to none.
Someone I feel very close to although only spent 4 hours with him – and definitely will stay in touch with him.
Professional service you can trust from the booking process right up to the photos arriving ! Thanks Brian – you’re a star !
Laurence & Leon
Brian was our photographer for our wedding on May 28th 2012. One word to describe Brian – amazing!!! He is so warm, friendly and funny and always responds to your queries very quickly. He listens to your ideas and makes you feel so relaxed. As we travelled over from the UK, we did not get to meet Brian until the morning of the wedding but I already felt that i was meeting a friend. He is very witty and the wedding party absolutely loved him. Brian took us to various locations in Manhattan for photos which was great and along the way we meet loads of well wishers. I was very sad when we had to say our good byes to Brian but i know that we have made a friend and look forward to seeing him again. oh i near forgot – most importantly – we have now received our photos which we love. The only problem now is picking our fav to go into our album. Thank you so much Brian. Lots of Love from Laurence & Leon.
Angela & David
After clicking in and out of many a website looking for a NY photographer it was clear as soon as we saw Brian’s amazing pictures that he was ‘the one’ for us! Unique, modern, relaxed, creative, stunning shots … that is exactly what we got … our wonderful day captured at every point in style … we couldn’t be happier with our photographs! Brian is so professional, helpful and fun so the experience couldn’t have been better and we would recommend him 100%!
Melissa & Geraldo
I had a dream wedding in mine and my husbands eyes. Brian was able to catch all the memories better than I could have even imagined. He poured his heart into my big day as if it was his own. I am over the moon with the pictures and was even more happy to have them turned around to me fast so I could share them with my loved ones. I will be thanking Brian for eternity!
Natalie & Ryan
We couldn’t have asked for more from a wedding photographer. We organised our wedding from over in the UK but Brian responded to all our questions quickly and went above and beyond.
We are so happy with our wedding photos – they are better than we could ever have imagined – everyone who sees them says it looks like we were on a film set or magazine shoot.
Alyson & Garrett
Amazing photography! We love our pictures and have received so many compliments about our photo highlights from the wedding! I can’t wait to see all of the pictures! Brian was so easy to work with and made sure we got all of the photos we wanted in. I would definitely recommend Brian!
Polly & Andrew
Brian is not only an outstanding photographer, but was an absolute pleasure to spend time with on our wedding day. Friendly, extremely easy to communicate with both in the run up to the trip and during the day itself. Highly recommended.
Sian & Stephen
The photographs (all 209 of them) Brian took were fantastic; crystal clear, with vibrant colours. My wife and I got married in Central Park and the combination of the blue sky, colours from the flowers (both in the park and in the bouquet), the surrounding buildings and of course us were captured in the photographs, together with the essence and the special moment of the day.As we both eloped to New York on our own, it was important that we had the best record of the wedding to share with our family. The photographs tell a story, perfectly reliving our ceremony and the locations we chose afterwards (around Central Park, Grand Central and near the Central Library). The one comment that people keep giving us about our wedding is that the photographs are amazing.The approach that Brian takes is one where he would take photographs of us whilst walking, laughing and talking and of course during the ceremony. This results in more natural looking photographs.From start to finish Brian was very helpful and friendly, quick to respond to emails, a professional approach to his work and to assist us we held a video conference beforehand to discuss locations and details for the day.We would highly recommend Brian and in fact have done so already to a colleague that is due to get married in New York next year.
Gemma & Gary
If I could give Brian 10 stars I certainly would!!
On the day of the wedding, Brian turned up exactly as arranged and just got on with the job. No fuss, no formalities – he instantly felt like one of the wedding party. He ran between us girls and the boys in the bar and really did his best to capture every little detail in the time we had before we left for the ceremony. He snapped continually for the whole 5 hours we had him, but never once did we feel like he was in the way, or that we were being pushed from pillar to post for ‘poses’. We visited three locations in the city and Brian knew exactly which spots in each would get us the best shots. He was fantastic at managing our other over enthusiastic photographers (or guests as they are sometimes known)!!While we were on Honeymoon Brian sent us through a couple of shots and we were literally blown away. Now a few weeks on and we just received all of our photos. I can’t tell you how delighted we are with them. I’ve just spend most of the weekend pouring over them, and re-living every moment of the day. I’ve started to show them around to our friends and family and every comment is the same – Amazing, magazine quality, so different and stylish. Every single person is so impressed by them!! My fiancé and I did not want posed photos, Brian has managed to capture the emotion of the whole day in a fantastic story style. I’m genuinely concerned that I’ll never get anything done ever again as I’m spending so much time with those photos!
Jennifer & Juan
Brian photographed our wedding at The River Cafe on June 22, 2012. He was such a pleasure to work with, extremely professional and his photographs were beautiful! The photography was one of the most important elements of our wedding to me and I searched for so long to find the right person. I couldnt have been happier with the results! I would highly recommend him!!
Naomi & Alan
We were so thrilled with the pictures we got from Brian! He created such a lovely coverage of our wedding, and we would certainly recommend him to anyone who is interested in a little story telling approach to their wedding. Initially we were drawn to Brian’s way of conveying feelings so beautifully with his pictures, his warm lighting and colors and the way he seems to sympathetically portray and complement his subjects. We are both New Yorkers but I had a lot of family arriving to the wedding from overseas, and we wanted to document the story of our families getting together, as well as of course some great portraits of everyone to commemorate our special day. Brian was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. Super professional, fun, creative, courteous, and punctual. In just two hours, Brian got a huge and wonderful group of amazing portraits of us as a couple, terrific family pictures, documented our ceremony, the cake, different details of the venue and decoration, and candid shots of everyone interacting. It’s amazing how much he got done in such a short time, and the quality of the photos really testifies to his wonderful professionalism. We are extremely happy with the results – the photos are simply gorgeous! I should add that I’m a photographer and a photo editor myself by profession, so I look at a lot of photographs, and Brian’s are really top rate.
Caroline & Craig
We came from the UK to get married in Central Park and Brian’s website was the first one I found when I googled ‘reasonably priced photographer in New York’. That search might seem like a tall order but Brian fitted the bill exactly.The pictures on his website weren’t the stuffy photographs you get so use to at wedding, they captured something so special that I knew as soon as I saw the first photograph on his website that he was the right man for the job.I sent my first enquiry and he got back to us almost immediately and I felt like we were friends straight away. He listens to what you want, he throws in his own great ideas and he was extremely accommodating with the timings of the day. Paying a deposit to secure his services was a piece of (wedding) cake We exchanged several emails prior to the big day and I think at one point Brian was more excited than us! His enthusiasm both before and on the day was infectious.We arranged to meet at Central Park and there he was right on time and snapping away. We gave him the nickname Snappy during the day as he is constantly there but never intrusive. Sometimes you would actually forget he was beside you. Brian fitted into our small group effortlessly and he was a joy to have with us.After the ceremony and photos in Central Park (including hot dogs!) we got in the limo, all drank champagne and took the party to Times Square! I was nervous about this bit – walking in Times Square in a wedding dress, but it was a blast with so many people congratulating us and Brian just getting some fabulous natural shots of us and our friends. I wanted the ‘crossing’ shot that was the photo I saw of another couple on his website and we got it. Everyone who sees it is blown away by it.Brian suggested taking it to Bar 45 and these are some of my favourite shots with some of them looking like an editorial in a glossy magazine.By the time we landed back in the UK Brian had sent us some preview shots that I could not stop looking at. I showed them off at every available opportunity and everyone was absolutely amazed at the uniqueness of them with many commenting that they wished they had had a photographer like that at their wedding.Brian made all of us look so glamorous and I waited with baited breath for the remaining photographs and two weeks later, as promised, I got the email with the download. I’ve just put my wedding photo book together and I don’t think I’ve missed a single one of the photos out (and there was over 200 to choose from!)Deciding to get married in New York City, great decision. Deciding to use Brian as our photographer, best decision ever!
Kay & Doug
I found Brian on the internet and fell in love with his images. From Scotland and getting married in NYC i wanted my photos to reflect the charm of New york and Brian knew exactly where to take us to capture this.He was so easy to talk to and put us at ease straight away. With all the communication id had with him before our big day he already felt like a friend and I was excited to finally meet with him.We had a truely perfect wedding day in New York and I really feel Brian made a huge contribution to making this happen! Great guy and we love love love our wedding images they make wonderful visual memories of our Wedding day.
Kirsty & Trevor
Brian is fantastic. A lot of brides on various wedding forums had said good things about Brian. I checked his website and fell in love with his images, so my husband and I met up with him on a visit to New York before the wedding. Brian was so friendly, he immediately put us both at ease and we knew that he was the person that we wanted to book.
On the day of the wedding, we had planned to go to the various landmarks for pictures, but it was absolutely hammering down with rain all day. Brian was on it straight away, suggesting locations that were indoors, or had shelter, but still were still unmistakably New York . The pictures were stunning – unlike any others I had seen before. Brian really seemed to capture our personalities and recorded the day perfectly. We have had so many compliments about the pictures, many people have said that they would like to get married or renew their vows in New York just so they can have similar photos taken by Brian!
Nicola & Mark
We travelled from Scotland to get married in Central Park on 1st September and we are very happy we picked Brian Friedman to capture our day. He took amazing, beautiful and natural photographs that bring back great memories every time we look at them, which is a lot! We had read some great reviews and liked the photos on Brians website and we certainly were not disappointed with our own photos. Brian was very friendly and always responded to emails promptly. We booked Brian for two hours and on the day of the wedding he put us at ease and made the experience of getting our photos taken really enjoyable. Two hours probably wasnt long enough with Brian. We had so much fun it would have been good to have had more time. We would definately reccommend him for your wedding photographer.
Kim & Paul
We would highly recommend Brian as THE New York Wedding Photographer of choice! After seeing his photos of other UK couples, we knew he was the man for the job, he was the first part of our wedding that we booked. Also, Paul being a wedding photographer here in the UK meant that it was one of the most important choices for us. Our only regret is that we didn’t book him for long enough, three hours went so quickly and we were really getting into the swing of things when we ran out of time!! Be warned, book Brian for as much time as you can manage, you won’t be disappointed………We now have our wonderful images and are having trouble chosing which ones to put in our album!!
Claire & Mark
We got married in new york in July 2011 and brian shot our wedding. From the moment that we met he put us at ease and made our day really enjoyable!!! My husband was not looking forward to getting photos taken but at the end of the photos he said that he really enjoyed every minute because brian did not have us posing but took natural, fun, hip and fantastic shots. Everyone said that our photographs are unique, special, really artistic and the best wedding photos they have ever seen…..i could not agree more!!! Brian really does go above and beyond – you will not get a better wedding photographer or a nicer guy. professional all the way…..big thanks and we have no doubt that you will continue to be the best wedding photographer in new york!!!
Nicola & Guy
Seriously dont even concider another photographer, everyone who has seen our photos (and thats a lot) has said that our photos look like they are from a bridal magazine, or that they are that amazing we look like models! Brian is such a lovely man, he is so helpful, exciteable, warm and funny he made our wedding day even more perfect, our guests are still taking about bri-dog, b-dizzle, briyannn as they all knicknamed him. SO much fun. Thank you Brian 🙂 xxxx
Kay & Mark
We got married in New York and live in France. From the moment we contacted Brian by email, I knew he was the one for us, as he was responsive and made us feel at ease from the moment we contacted him. We love his work – natural and artistic photos, he really knows how to capture those special moments. We loved his work so much we met again on our anniversary to do another photo shoot and he amazed yet again. We would recommend Brian to anyone and look no further. You will not be disappointed. Not to mention Brian sent us a few snapshots of our wedding on the night of our wedding – so we could send our photos to our families back home. Brian also chose all the photos for our album and thanks to him we have a memorable day to look back on.
Hannah & Matthew
Brian was absolutely fantastic on our wedding day, he made us feel at ease, was friendly, smiley and listened to what photos we wanted, he also had some amazing ideas and took really natural photos, we have got our photos now and are over the moon with them!!
Brian was like an extra member of the family on our wedding day as he made everyone at our wedding party feel relaxed 🙂
If you want a fun, innovative, friendly photographer then pick Brian as he was honestly amazing x
Kera & Al
Perfect perfect perfect. Brian is a talented photographer who took the most beautiful photographs which captured the best day for us. He was great to communicate with, responding to my emails in less than 24hours. On the day he was heaps of fun to hang out with and made us both feel very comfortable in front of the camera. Thank you Brian x
Sophie & Mark
Brian is an incredibly talented photographer. Having seen his work on his website we had no doubt who we would choose for our wedding in NYC. Brian was responsive to all our queries and really professional and reassuring throughout. Nearer the time we chatted over the phone about the day and timings and on the day when it rained, Brian was the one telling me that the light was better in the rain and the photos would look amazing, and they do! So many of our family and friends have commented that they have never seen wedding photos like them, we still can’t believe it ourselves, they really are something special and unique. Brian really captured the essence of our day and we now have great photos to re-live the memories of our special day forever.Thank you so much Brian, not only do we have fantastic wedding photos, we have gained a special friend!
Craig & Michelle
We hired Brian to do our NYC wedding photo shoot in June 2011 after consulting various wedding forums with lots of glowing reviews. Having contacted Brian a few months before our wedding to arrange our requirements we were more than impressed with how smoothly & to plan the whole experience went on the Wedding day. Brian certainly has a natural flair & ability in capturing the important moments. We throughly enjoyed our time with Brian & would recommend him for anyone considering a photo shoot, especially a NYC wedding! True professional….thanks to Lisa his assistant too for all her help!Thanks from Craig & Michelle in the UK
Russ & Sarah
If there is one thing I would recommend anyone to do when getting married in New York, it would be book Brian Freedman for your photography. He went out of his way to help us out prior to our wedding, and on the day he was a total professional and made us feel comfortable and the experience enjoyable. He totally understood our needs and we received our photos quicker than expected. The quality of the photos are amazing and again exceeded our expectations, couldn’t of asked for any more. On top of all of that, he’s a top guy and a pleasure to be around.
Joanne & Craig
We are delighted with the service that we received from B-Freed (Brian Friedman). If you are looking for a photographer who is professional, tenanted, friendly and helpful, then look no further!
I can’t praise Brian Friedman enough, from the moment we contacted him he has been very responsive and has offered good advice along the way. This was very much appreciated especially as we organised our wedding in New York from back home in the UK.
Brian is one of the nicest guys we have ever met and genuinely wants to make sure you have the best experience possible. He made us feel very relaxed on the day as we were both a little nervous having our photo taken, in fact alot of the time we forgot he was there quietly snapping away!
We received our pictures very promptly after our wedding and they are simply AMAZING!! The whole wedding including how happy the occassion was has been captured perfectly. My family and friends who weren’t able to attend the wedding have also commented on how lovely our wedding photo’s are and that they seem to tell a story of events that took place that day, giving them an insite in to our
We would highly recommend B-Freed to anyone looking for a photographer, we personally feel that we couldn’t have made a better choice.
Brian photographed my wedding over Memorial Day and we could not be happier with the experience. He was easy to work with, incredibly supportive and encouraging while shooting (made everyone feel like models) and his pictures were creative and beautiful. Brian was recommended to me by my sister-in-law who is a professional photographer and works with all of the best photographers in NYC.
Charlotte & Lucy
First of all, you can’t help but love Brian as soon as you meet him… he’s just awesome. And, second of all, he takes incredible photos. I would recommend his photography talents to every single one of my friends getting married; anywhere in the world – he’d make it worth the cost of flying him to wherever you were. Seriously. A lovely, lovely guy and super talented.
Virginia & Randal
You don’t need me to tell you how stunning Brian’s work is: the photos speak for themselves. But what you don’t know (yet!) is how amazing he is as a person. He went above and beyond for our wedding in many small ways. Most notably:-he responded to every email/phone call promptly-he got along with everyone and had a great energy-he was not intrusive during any of the events and yet got great shots-he is FAST. he had our photos done before we even got back from our honeymoon!!!I have friends whose photographers took a couple of months or more.Did I mention the photos are stunning? I still can’t get over the fact that he made my husband and I look like movie stars. Six of my friends (so far) have changed their Facebook profile pictures to one that Brian took of them during the wedding.We were lucky with all of our wedding vendors, but Brian was by far our favorite. Pick B-Freed and be happy!
Melanie & David
We came across Brian’s name on a wedding forum in the uk, whereby everyone who had used him had fantastic things to say about his work. after looking at his sites, we knew that’s who we wanted. Being in another country and bring to organise the most special day of your life is daunting, however, the service we received before, during and after our wedding has been second to none! Brian knew exactly what to do and how to do it and it shows in the photographs! we were overwhelmed when we saw them for the first time and all family and friends have commented by saying they are the best wedding photos they have ever seen! so thank you Brian on a professional level but also on a personal level. also thanks to Brian for introducing us to other couples who live nearby who also used him for their wedding in NYC. The whole wedding experience was totally amazing but was truly enhanced by the services and relationship we had built with Brian!
Carly & Steven
We both in tears at them to be honest and couldn’t be any happier with the way they have turned out. You managed to capture exactly the mood and feel we wanted to take away with us. We never had any doubt to be honest and trusted you whole heartedly to do an amazing job.They have turned out even better than we could have wished for. Thanks for all your help from start to finish, you were an integral part of our special day and we will always be indebted to you for that. It goes beyond just the taking pictures, but also the way you made not just us, but all our guests feel at ease throughout the day.Choose Brian and we can guarantee you will not be dissapointed! Not just a photographer but a new friend!
Nicole & Andy
B ManWe can honestly say that we have never seen wedding photos like ours! They are amazing!!!! Our day was made absolutely perfect by the scenery in Central Park, which you managed to capture wonderfully. From the first email back at the beginning of 2010 we knew that you were the one for us! We had pictured our photographs in our head right up until the day we received them and were expecting fantastic things; and boy did you deliver. All of our friends and family have commented on how amazing our photos are and we agree! We cannot thank you enough for everything. You are a true gentleman and a pleasure to be around. The one thing we want to say to anyone wanting to capture a special moment in his or her lives is “Employ Brian”!!!!From the bottoms of our hearts thank youMr and Mrs Rice
Hayley & Craig
We travelled from the UK to New York for our central park wedding. We saw Brian’s work online and asked if we could have similar shots, he said no problem. It was just us two and so Brian had to record our day for the family back home. The weather was awful but he was nothing but calming, cheerful, professional and full of ideas. He took us inside grand central station, out of the rain for beautiful photos. We really could not recommend Brian more highly. His support of us as a couple, his skill with his camera his knowledge of the city, the shear number and quality of the photos we received, especially considering the conditions and short time he was with us was amazing. We were so lucky to find him and book him. Craig and Hayley Morris, England
Sandra & Stephen
Brian was amazing! So glad we found him he really made our day. Brian was on time, professional, fun, and made the both of us feel so relaxed. He’s so talented! Photos we received were amazing, so much different than the usual boring wedding pictures. He really knows how to use a location to get a great image. Photos were received by email in 3 days!!! Did not expect images to be sent so quickly. Don’t hesitate booking this guy, you won’t regret it!!! Sandra & Stephen, Ireland.
Mairead & John
We eloped from Ireland to NYC and made the very wise decision to choose Brian to photograph our wedding day. He had been recommended to us by another Irish Couple! Right from our enquiry, Brian got back to us straight away and left us with no doubt that he was the “best man!” for the job!! He is so friendly and professional and we knew from the off that we had made a great decision.We sent Brian a text a couple of days before the wedding to make sure everything was ok and didnt feel the need to have to meet with him before the day itself.On the day of the wedding, Brian came to meet us in our hotel room as previously arranged. He is such a sound, cool guy. You cant help but like him as he is chatty, friendly and really puts you at ease. It really does show that Brian wants you to have a good day.We trusted Brian so much that we let him take full control of the pics on that day. We let him choose where and how he wanted to take the shots. It was great being with someone who was happy to be in control. Brian took amazing pics in the hotel suite, outside the hotel, waiting for a cab, was there to catch images of my veil blowing into a tree(what are the chances!!) arriving at the church, in the church and afterwards in Central Park.I cant explain how delighted we were when we saw our wedding pictures for the first time. We looked at them over and over again. Brian had taken so many pictures of us and we didnt even see or know he had taken those shots!The best thing about the pictures are that they tell the story of our wedding day. When showing our pictures to family and friends they really get to see how the day unfolded and that is thanks to Brian. Everyone comments on how fantastic the pictures are.Not only was Brian our photographer but he was also our witness on the day and now we can call him a friend!I cant recommend Brian highly enough. He is the man for the job in our opinion. You can trust him to deliver and not only that but you’ll enjoy your time with him. He has a great eye and attention to detail.If anyone would like to see some of the images Brian took, please just ask and I would be delighted to forward them to you.
Julie & Phil
I couldn’t fault Brian even if i wanted to, he was flexible with the date and time, was attentive, made us feel totally at ease and even witnessed our marriage for us! The photos were amazing and we’ve had some excellent feedback on them. I would recommend him to anyone! Julie
Teresa & John
Brian was a joy to work with! From our engagement photos to our weddding day he made everything fun and exciting… and the photos are amazing!!!!! We got married on January 15th and we can’t stop looking at the photos!! Brian has made his photography such an art and has an eye for the perfect shot! He made our photography memories just as perfect as the day itself!! We highly recommend Brain and B-Freed Photography!
Andy & Rhiann
Brian (B-Freed photography) is so much more than a photographer. He is a very talented artist. The first time I saw his work I was awestruck at the quality. Anyone who wants boring, tired old pictures then look elsewhere. If you require stunning, unique, vibrant, exciting, modern beautiful photographs then B-Freed is for you. On a personal note we found Brian to be the nicest and most professional person to deal with. Nothing was a problem. Any communication was answered within minutes!!!! Brian helped transform our wedding from a fantastic occasion into an experience that we shall treasure forever more. He was totally unobtrusive and put us both very much at ease. We cannot recommend B-Freed photography highly enough and feel very lucky and privileged to have had Brian photograph our wedding. We now consider Brian to be a friend of ours. Do not bother with anyone else. If Brian is available BOOK HIM NOW. I promise you will not regret your descision.
Catherine & Mark
Brian is any absolute star! We would recommend that you book him as a photographer if you are getting married in Manhattan without hesitation!We were fortunate enough to meet up with Brian in London prior to our big day, and again in Manhattan on a pre-wedding trip. His professionalism and talent speak for themselves, it is his warmth and friendless that make it a pleasure to spend your day with him. The quality of his work is simply stunning and we are absolutely amazed with how he captured every moment of our special day.We not only got some beautiful pictures capturing the day, but in addition we gained a friend.…Now we just need to find an excuse to return to NYC and book Brian for another photo shoot!
Nicola & Stephen
Brian was recommended to us by friends who had gotten married in New York the previous year and we are so glad that we booked him to take our wedding photos. They are amazing! He has a natural eye for a good shot and being a native New Yorker knew exactly where to take us to get the best out of us and the city. I have posted some of the photos on facebook and friends comments have been along the lines of ‘these are the most beautiful wedding photos ever’ and ‘they are amazing and totally unique’!I am not confident in front of a camera but Brian was so unobtrusive and really put us at ease. He caught some great candid shots and in no time we were loving strutting all over Central Park and Times Square in our wedding finery with Brian snapping away!Brian ended up staying with us for 4 hours and we only wished we had booked him to come to The River Cafe for our wedding dinner that night as not only is he a great photographer he is also a really funny interesting guy!Brian was so quick to get the photos sent to us and we got them whilst still on honeymoon – we couldn’t wait to get home to get them downloaded!We not only got fabulous photos to serve as a reminder of our perfect day but we also made a new friend as well. Brian is a great guy and I can’t recommend him highly enough to anyone thinking of getting married in New York!
Susanne & Justin
My wife and I live in the UK and decided to marry in New York City. We had been made aware of Brian Friedman via visiting a forum on getting married abroad. Everyone had been saying how professional Brian is and how amazing his photography is too, so we checked out his site and sure enough we were really impressed with his work. We had actually kept hold of his details a good couple of years ahead of our wedding day and when the time came to start making arrangements, we contacted Brian and were extremely happy to find out he was available for our big day. Organising a wedding to be held in another country can be a stressful thing, but Brian’s relaxed and helpful correspondense were absolutely fantastic. Come November 3rd 2010 we got married in Central Park and I have to say that Brian was an absolute pleasure to have there helping to treasure our memories with incredible photography. He is very nice and fun to work with and he made us both feel very at ease. We had some wonderful pictures taken in the Gardens of Central Park and then headed to Times Square for some more pictures which was a lot of fun. Then it was back to the hotel for some candid shots, and we got a chance to have a good chat with Brian and shout him a drink! We can’t say enough good things about Brian Friedman’s work and would most definitely recommend him for your wedding.
Claire & Mark
What an amazing photographer! Right from the beginning Brian was there to help with our queries and immediately made us feel at ease. As we were planning our wedding from the UK it was so important to us to feel comfortable and Brian made us feel in safe hands.
On our wedding day, we first met with Brian and he was so genuine and friendly and made us feel relaxed straightaway. He knew exactly where to get the best photos and made full use of the daylight and when it started to go dark Brian took us to get some amazing night shots.
The photos are truly unbelievable!! We are so happy, they capture the day perfectly, everyone has commented on how they are the best wedding photos they have seen! And the fact that he is such a great guy just makes it even better!
We highly recommend Brian – you will not be disappointed!!
Regina & Arthur
Brian is an outstanding photographer. But beyond his technical expertise, he has gone above and beyond in all aspects of his work. When we arrived at our first shoot location, Brian was waiting for us and as soon as we got there we dove right into shooting. He used the best possible angles and made outstanding shots. He brought his own equipment and switched out lenses as necessary. He made my wife and I feel very comfortable. He was flexible and polite and worked very well with our driver Joe. He took us to all of the places he thought would look great and they did. He didn’t take us to anywhere we didn’t want to go and not once did we get a sleazy “trust me, I’m a professional” shpiel. Then, Brian provided us with an amazing wedding album. Most importantly, he provided us with beautiful memories that will last a lifetime. Bottom line is, Brian is a great photographer and the best part about working with him is that he is a lot of fun. I will recommend Brian to all of my friends and loved ones for their special events.
Stephanie & Phil
We have returned home from our amazing wedding on Bow Bridge in Central Park New York and I have to tell all of the brides out there you have have have to book Brian to be your wedding photographer. He really is amazing.From the moment I first emailed him he was the best. I got a reply within minutes and just looking at the difference in quality between Brian’s portfolios compared to others, the choice was simple and we had to have him.As soon as we met on the wedding day I didn’t feel like he was a person taking pictures, he really is a friend making art work. I hate my picture being taken and I felt so at ease and it didn’t bother me at all. Thankfully we had his company for 4 hours through the day and I wish we could have booked him for longer, so I definitely recommend the longer you can book the better by far.Every one of the pictures we had a sneak peak at was amazing and he even took one on his iPhone to put on Facebook for our friends back in the UK.We got our pics whilst still on Honeymoon but we couldn’t resist getting them downloaded. Every single picture is better than I could have ever asked for, and every one of our friends and family has commented to say how amazing they are. I can’t quite believe how he manages to capture some of the pictures without us even realising, but they are all just brilliant.Brian you are such a great guy, so friendly, funny and incredibly talented in what you do, you have really made my dream of having beautiful wedding photos come true – Thank you sooooo much.

We booked our trip to Ny to get married only 10 weeks before our wedding day, we were lucky enough to be able to book Brian to take our photos.
Communication was excellent, very fast and helpful and we had our photos back a week after our big day.
We gave Brian a tough schedule of places we would like to have our photos taken at and we got them all in with out feeling at all rushed and at the same time just never stopped laughing.
Brian also did a great job of keeping me calm when we lost our parents on the way to City Hall, he got some great shots of them eventually arriving with a look of relief on their faces.
We could have not wished for more everybody who has seen them say they look like they have come out of a film set, and my Dad tells everybody ‘ I just dont know where she found him from but he was amazing’
We would definitely recommend Brian not only is he a fantastic photographer but also a really great guy.

As photographers ourselves choosing the right person to be our wedding photographer was undoubtedly the most important decision for our big day! We not only wanted the best photographs in terms of quality, essence and style but also results that enabled us to instantly travel back to that very special day through our photographs – Brian ticked every box! From I urial contact we could tell Brian was a warm, friendly and professional photographer very accommodating, flexible and reassuring. Communication and service was first class at every step of the way. The wedding day itself was a hoot Brian helped me relax and made me relax in the morning even though it was only my makeup artist Brian and I in the room i felt like I’d known them for years! Despite the rain on the way to the ceremony we were inspired by brian’s professional creative enthusiasm to still get great shots and that too was delivered first class. I now love the fact it rained creating beautiful city reflections in the puddles and a shiny polished look. Brian was a huge and special part of our day and we celebrated with him when we got back to our hotel by delving into our giant wedding cupcake for some last few fun shots with Brian! We would highly recommend Brian toany bride and groom- all you need to do is make first contact to an efficient and rewarding wedding photography experience. Mr & Mrs Olsen x

My fiance & I decided to elope to New York from Dublin, Ireland in Sept 2010 to get married. One of the things we thought would be great to do on the day was to hire a professional photographer to take pictures of us throughout the wedding day so that we didnt have to worry about trying to capture the pictures ourselves. After doing alot of research online (from Ireland) the name that kept coming up with excellent reviews was Brian Friedman, so I viewed Brian’s website and as soon as I saw his portfolio I said to my fiance we HAVE to have Brian as our photographer for our wedding day!! We phoned Brian in New York and from the minute we spoke to him we knew we made the right choice because he was so warm, friendly and accommodating. We hired a limo for 10 of us on the day itself and Brian travelled around New York with us for about 4 hours whilst taking the most AMAZING pictures. Brian was great fun on the day and made everyone feel so relaxed while he took the most natural and beautiful photos of us all. Since our wedding day whenever anyone sees our wedding photos they absolutely rave about them and instantly want to know who the photographer was that took them! I cannot recommend Brian highly enough, he made our wedding day very special and we regularly look back at his brilliant pictures which always made us smile so much…..he captured our wedding day so beautifully.
Sarah & James
Living in the UK, we spent a long time searching on line for a photographer to capture our destination wedding in New York. We spotted some of Brian’s photos and then went on his website – we were literally wowed! We loved Brian’s style of photography, his photos are really modern, he picks up on all the details and we decided he would be the perfect choice to capture our special day. We couldn’t find a bad review about Brian so decided to contact him about our wedding photography requirements. Brian responded so quickly to every email we sent and we could tell from his friendly tone that we were going to get along just fine! Brian is extremely good value for money and you won’t be disappointed with his photographs. We loved having Brian as our photographer, he’s such a great guy and ever so talented. We have wonderful photos to match our brilliant memories of our wedding day thanks to Brian. We’ve had so many comments from friends and family who love our wedding photos. We would recommend Brian without hesitation!
Andrea & Phil
We travelled from the UK to get married in Central Park, NYC. We had a very intimate ceremony – there were no guests! We booked Brian for 2 hours to photograph the ceremony and then to take more photographs of us around New York. We initially communicated with Brian via email and he was always very responsive, listening carefully to what we wanted. During the day itself, Brian immediately put us at ease and was very easy to work with, being both personable and professional at the same time. He was not at all intrusive during the ceremony. We received the photographs within a few days in digital format and were extremely pleased with the result. As we did not have any guests attend the wedding, it was very important to us to have good quality photographs to share with family and friends on our return to the UK and we were not disappointed. We will always enjoy looking back on these photographs to remind us of our wedding day and could not recommend Brian highly enough.
Sarah & Graham
My husband and I we’re planned our wedding in New York from the UK. We found Brian’s website (B-Freed.com) by searching online, and we’re so glad we did.
From the minute we contacted Brian he was brilliant, answering all our questions (which he’d probably heard a million times before) with reassuring responses. He captured our special day perfectly, encorporating our personalities and the amazing surroundings of NYC in every shot. It was a pleasure to spend our wedding day with him, we couldn’t have asked for a better person to be our photographer.
Emma & Graham
We were so pleased with the photos we received from Brian. We had SO much fun taking them and he really put us out our ease. Even my husband (!), who hates having his photo taken with a passion, really enjoyed himself and wished we could have booked Brian for longer! And that truly is a recommendation!From the moment we first made contact with him, Brian has been everything we could have wanted: friendly, professional, extremely helpful and great value for money. The quality of the images is fantastic and the speed with which he managed to get them back to us was incredible. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Brian to any potential client – you simply can’t go wrong with him!
Tina & James
If I was able to give Brian more than 5.0 out of 5.0 for everything I would!!!From the very start, he was amazing. He replied to my many questions promptly and with such warmth that I should have immediately known what a genuinely fantastic guy he is.We were travelling from the UK for our wedding and all our research was done on the net. I found Brian’s photos on a website and loved them. There was a stunning photo of a couple in Times Square, kissing in the middle of all the traffic with a traffic cop behind them, seemingly holding up the rush hour for love! It was magical and I knew there and then that I had found the perfect photogtapher. I wasn’t wrong.I took a horse and carriage through Central Park to the Ladies Pavilion and Brian was there, waiting. He was completely unobtrusive through the ceremony clicking away and catching lots of special moments and then took the most fantastic family portraits in the park.But then, the best bit, we left the wedding party behind and James and I jumped a cab with Brian and went round the city. I will never forget that afternoon for as long as I live. It was just amazing and we loved Brian. He is smart, funny, sweet and great fun. The photos are really something else.When our time was up we took a cab back to meet our families at a restaurant and Brian joined us for dinner. Although we had used up all out time, he insisted on taking more photos at the dinner and even took pictures of our wedding cupcakes!! Everyone found him delightful.The photos are outstanding and everyone loves them. They just capture the essence of our day in the most magical place on earth and if you are looking to get married in NYC please JUST DO IT!!! And if you are looking for a photographer who will really make it a phenomenal experience then BRIAN IS YOUR MAN!!!!!Go on, just take a look at his site and you will be hooked!! I cannot recommend him highly enough. Actually, we all love him so much one of his UK brides set up an appreciation page for him on facebook and lots of us are now friends with each other because we have Brian in common. AND, if that wasn’t cool enough, he is coming over to the UK and we are hooking up with him in Glasgow at the end of the month!!!BOOK HIM NOW AND HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!!XTina McGreevy/Smith

Brian is the man! The photos he took of our wedding were absolutely amazing, they will be cherished forever. The shots were very natural and captured every aspect of the day. When we arrived home to London we shared our photos and the comments were mainly on how good our photographer was!….. in fact more people have said the photos look nice as opposed to me, the bride, thanks for nothing Brian ;o)Brian’s communication was brilliant, he always got back to us very quickly. He also helped us select the right photo locations as a native New Yorker! He was an absolute pleasure to spend the day with, providing all the directions for our limo driver!I would recommend Brian to anyone getting married, especially for those travelling to New York on a destination wedding!Thank you Brian!
Miriam & John
Brian is fabulous ! Look no further and pick him to shoot at your wedding! He is flexible , friendly , reliable and not pricey at all! He is right there for you when you plan the day, on the day and after. Getting married in New York was a great decision and having Brian for the picture made our day perfect!! Thanks Again Mr B!!!!
Lolly & Ben
Arranging a wedding from across the pond is no mean feat, not least deciding on whom to hire as your photographer to capture one of the most important days of your life. Deciding not to have an official videographer also made this decision even more important for us in getting that decision right and get it right he certainly did!I communicated with Brian over email before the big day and despite the logistics he totally ‘got’ us as couple and knew the outcome we were looking for. His local knowledge before and on the big day was invaluable and I commend him for capturing everything whilst remaining so discreet amongst our small gathering.Even now, 18 months on, when I look back through the photographs there is always something new that I pick up on. Cleverly capturing the emotion of the day, he picked up on the little details that over time you forget about, or wouldn’t think were important in telling the story of the day. His attention to detail is outstanding!
I truly love our photos and am incredibly grateful to Brian and his amazing talent for giving us such a brilliant record of our day. We couldn’t have asked for more.Ben & Lolly x
Nicola & Mark
Brian is an excellent photographer and a great choice for couples coming to NYC on their own as he is so helpful and friendly and really helped make the day special for us. He had great ideas for shots that we hadn’t thought of. We would highly recommend him.
Dawn & Brett
I can’t recommend Brian highly enough – his photography is fantastic.We researched several photographers for our wedding – all done online as we were travelling from UK to get married in New York – as soon as we saw Brian’s portfolio we knew we had found the photographer we wanted. Brian did not disappoint! We are so proud of our pictures – everyone comments on how fab they are – they are not your bog standard wedding pictures. Brian has a fantastic eye for detail and creativity. He made us feel really relaxed, he was easy to deal with leading up to the wedding and a complete professional – I would recommend anyone to Brian, without any doubt.
Gail & Graeme
We chose Brian as our wedding photographer after looking at his website. I knew from the moment I saw the first photograph that this was the man I wanted to capture our special day.
From the start he was professional, but with a really friendly approach. As we were making the booking from the UK I needed to be able to trust the vendors we were using in NYC and I trusted Brian from the start.
On the wedding day he was fantastic. We wanted a relaxed informal feel for our wedding and that was exactly how Brian captured our day. He was completely unobtrusive and we didn’t even realise he was taking some shots.
We got the photographs back before we even left NYC and we were both amazed. They totally sum up our NYC wedding and everyone who sees them comments how fantastic they are.
Brian is a real treasure and I would absolutely reccomend him. If you want your wedding to be captured perfectly on camera, then Brian is absolutely the man for the job…
Carol & Stuart
If you’re looking for a first class, professional, inspiring, amazingly talented wedding photographer then you’ve found him here! We booked Brian for our October 2009 wedding after being referred to his site and being blown away by the stunning images. From our first contact Brian was incredibly supportive, something that was crucial when organising a USA wedding from the UK, on the day itself he was the consummate professional, putting everyone at ease, it was easy to forget he was there. We were delighted with our wedding photographs and would not hesitate to recommend B-Freed – indeed we already have and another friend from the UK booked him for their November 2010 wedding just a few weeks ago, and were as delighted as we were in trusting Brian Friedman to capture the essence of their wedding day.
Sharon & Jeff
Brian provided us with simply the best wedding photographs and photography experience we could have asked for. He’s personable and easy-going, and got the greatest shots without ever getting in the way of the party! He has an eye for interesting shots, and yet can still capture the emotion and tradition of the celebration. Highly recommended!
Amy & Jesse
We couldn’t be happier with our amazing wedding pictures! Brian was really able to capture the vibe I intended for our small intimate outside wedding. Ive gotten so many compliments on our photos. We are so glad we picked Brian as our photographer for our most special day- he helped make beautiful memories for us that we will forever treasure!
Joanne & Darren
My husband and I were married in New York in September 2009 in Central Park . We discovered B-Freed photography on-line and took a chance with the booking. We had no idea how things would come together due to the wedding venue being so far away from home, and the only communication being via email. However,I felt confident in the professional service we were being offered,and the reassurance that as soon as we arrived in New York, we could telephone Brian at B-Freed and finalise the arrangements.Brian was lovely and immediately made us feel at ease, he was really flexible yet professional at the same time. He took care in enabling we had the perfect wedding photographs and really worked with our wishes.I look back on my wedding day with amazing memories and am so grateful to Brian for providing us with such special images which we will treasure forever. My husband and I felt like film stars, and I would love to do it all over again!
Shirley & Steven
We decided 2 weeks before our holiday in NY to also get married there .We did everyhing online & rather than book a package deal prefered the idea of being able to pick individually each area.The photos & my hair were the two most important things for me for the day being a typical girl ! I looked at a number of photographers on line & came across Brian Freedman , as soon as i saw his website i knew this was the photographer for us .Due to the tight time scale i was nervous if Brain was available , thankfully he was .we managed to co ordinate a date that the reverand ,photographer & hairdresser were available .There was a couple of tense days whilst we arrranged all this but they all responsed straightaway to emails which really helped .
On the day we arrived at Belvedere Castle in Central Park , we meet Brain & straight away felt at ease.During the Ceremony we were not even aware of Brain taking pictures which shows how professional he is .He managed to capture every moment & feeling through out , even now when i look at the pictures i often fill up !
We had an intimate ceremony & just stayed in Central Park , as it was last minute we didnt have a huge budget .Brain took us to lovey arears through out the park that made for a wonderful background .
When we returned home Brain made sure he got the pictures to us with a few days which meant we had them in an albulm for our guests as we had a celebration with family & friends on our return .
Every one was blown away with our pictures & couldnt belive that we had managed to arrange evrything within such a short time .
We have kept in touch with Brain as he is such a lovley guy & made our day so speacial.I would highly recomend booking him for your wedding , im sure if you look at some of his pictures you will see what an amazing photographer his his .
Thank you Brain from Shirley & Steven Hall .xx
Paige & Tony
Brian did an amazing job on my wedding photos. I have gotten endless compliments on our pictures and album. Brian is extremely personable and professional. He has a great eye and takes fantastic pictures. He arrived early on my wedding day and made me feel at ease. You will love the memories that he will create for you!
Nicole & Jay
If you are planning a wedding in New York and looking for an amazing photographer, then look no further than Brian! You will honestly not be disappointed. My husband and I stumbled upon Brian’s website quite by chance, and were amazed at his portfolio of pictures. His wedding shots were really contemporary and imaginative which is just what we were looking for. When you meet Brian, you immediately like his friendly and bubbly personality. He has a knack of making you and your guests feel at ease whilst he is snapping away in the background. Just don’t look at the camera! His pictures were amazing, really unique and special, and totally captured the brilliance of a New York wedding! I would not hesitate in recommending Brian for your wedding photography, he is truly superb!
Lauren & Paul
What can I say to another bride to make her truly understand how utterly brilliant B-Freed Photography are!Brian is so professional, considerate, and best photographer ever! He instinctively knew what we wanted. We are both quite shy and don’t really like being photographed, but Brian made us feel relaxed and manage to encapsulate our personalities so well!But above all of that, our wedding pictures are AMAZING, full of charisma and artistic flare, we honestly couldn’t of had anyone better capture our special day.. we will always be eternally grateful and he’ll always hold a very special place in our hearts!
Michelle & Russell
We booked our wedding via the uk, and were recommended Brian via the vicar we used to conduct our service…and I must say that as soon as I looked at brian’s web page I knew I had to book him for our special day as his pictures were just unique and exciting, not the boring just stand there and smile job.
Emailing Brian any questions and queries was very straight forward as he always gave a prompt reply.
We met Brian on the day of our wedding and straight away you just warm to him as if you were meeting a friend. Because he put us at ease our pics are just fabulous, some are so natural that I can’t even remember them being taken as Brian just blended in.
But really I would totally recommend booking him to anyone who is getting married ( it’s been 2years since I married and I still rave on about him) as the work he does is just outstanding.
He emailed us our pics within days and it was a joy looking at them.
If he is available for you to book on your special day then I recommend that you go ahead and book him as he will help you to capture some fabulous memories.
We have made a true friend in Brian

After seeing Brians infamous photo of the couple in Times Square kissing in the middle of the road we were hooked. Being from the UK we were taking a gamble with all our wedding arrangements as we didn’t meet anyone until the big day. Thankfully everything came together and Brian was able to capture all these wonderful moments for us. We had a lovely vintage checker cab that we took across Manhattan from Central Park where we were marreid to Tiffany & Co, from Grand Central to Bryant Park and from Times Square to our reception at the River Cafe. Brian was absolutely fantastic and the shots we have from these locations are treasured by us both.Nothing was too much for Brian and I only wish we’d asked him to stay on and get some photos of the reception or at least buy him a drink. Everyone that sees our wedding photos is amazed at how natural they are and not once did we feel like we were being posed or that Brian intruded in our special occassion. Somehow Brian manages to blend into the background and capture the most magical memories that we didn’t even realise had happened! I have recommended Brian a number of times and will continue to do so.
Melissa & Michael
We have to begin by saying that we would highly recommend B-Freed. Not just because of his professionalism and high quality photography but his warm, genuine and friendly personality added to the experience to our wedding day.B-Freed is the prefect photographer to capture your special day. The photo’s caught the intimate moments of a special occasion. His relaxed manner enabled our personalities to be represented in every photo. Brian’s expertise made our day even more extraordinary.We were able to download the photographs a few days after the ceremony which meant we could send a few to our loved ones in the UK. The unique photo’s from places around Central Park and New York City made us cry with joy when we saw them. Friends and family members could experience the uniqueness of the wedding and the selected locations oozed the spirit of New York.If you want your precious day to be truly magical B-Freed is the man for you!!!
Alison & Chris
Brian was recommended to us by the Reverent that we had chosen after we made the decision to travel from England to Newyork to get married. There was only myself and my wife there on our special day and Brian had agreed to be our witness as well as capturing our special moments. I cannot recommend the service that we were given. We were made to feel relaxed and Brian was superb at recommending locations around central park and times square. Once we returned back to England our images were emailed to us so we could see what to expect. Shortly after the photographs arrived. If you want a first class photographer, then you’ve found him.
Deborah & Jonathan
If you are looking for an amazing photographer for your wedding day or any other event then Brian Friedman is your man!
We travelled from England to NYC for our wedding, just the two of us, and from the moment we contacted Brian he was brilliant.
He is a lovely guy, very friendly and knows NYC well.
Our photos are gorgeous, and viewed often.
We highly recommend Brian to anyone going to NY who needs a photographer.

BFREED is synonomous with EXCELLENCE! Based on my family’s experience with Brian and I consider him and his business a part of our family. A few years ago we gave Mom what we call a Royal Sweet 60 ball because she never had a Sweet 16 nor had the opportunity to be a part of a Debutant ball. We gave her all of that in high royal fashion for her 60th birthday. Brian and his Assistant were professional, friendly, creative, and establish memories for our family that took our breath away. His turn around time in addition to awesome price were superb. ALL FUTURE CLIENTS: BFREED from stress, anxiety, and worry. BFREED to simply enjoy your day and know that you will feel all of the joy of your occassion every time you and yours look at your BFREED photographic art.
Sarah & Jonathan
Brian was bloody amazing from start to finish! We booked him for our NYC wedding, he was friendly and helpful and the photos are to die for.
He also got the prints ready for us super-quick – we were able to pick them up on our way back from honeymoon since we went back to the UK via NYC.We were married at the Waldorf Astoria and Brian captured everything – me getting ready, the ceremony, the speeches, the descent down the Park Avenue steps with confetti before the limo ride, on-location in times square and even onto the boat with us that we had booked for our dinner cruise reception.We had so much fun – it was a relaxed day – and Brian really added to how special everything was. It felt very much like he was an intrinsic part of the day itself. Memories of the day itself and how perfect everything was include the way Brian seamlessly fitted into everything.Brian captured the most precious memories for us that day in April 2008 and we will always be grateful to him. He is the most talented photo journalist – my most favourite shots are the ones where he caught expressions and reactions in moments where we hadn’t even spotted him with the camera.If you are getting married in NYC, book B-Freed now. You will definitely not regret it!
Lisa & Giles
Brian is a truly talented photographer who loves his work and also happens to be a really nice person! We really can’t say enough good things about him and recommend him to anyone getting married in the NYC area. You will have the most amazing photographs to remind you of your amazing day.
Jennifer & Stephen
We had the pleasure of using Brian Friedman for our wedding photography in New York. Coming from the UK and scrolling through varous websites recommended to us nothing in particular stood out, other than the price! Then we came across Brian. He wasn’t over-priced like all the others and the pictures on his website told us we wouldn’t be disappointed. Brian responded to our messages immediately and completely put us at ease. On our big day, most of the time we were totally unaware he was there working his magic in the background. Brian totally excelled all expectations producing some amazing shots for us. The comments we get from our wedding pictures we never would have expected, even from strangers! Brian has created for us something unique, truely memorable and fantastic – something we will treasure forever! We couldn’t thank him enough. You’d be a fool not to use Brian Friedman!!! And what a lovely guy too!
