Orange County Boudoir Photographer, LORI BRYSTAN, lives to bring light and love to people’s lives. DID YOU KNOW…in French Boudoir literally translates to “the pouting room.” Fantasy becomes Reality Inspired by the world’s sexiest language, for me boudoir is where fantasy and reality collide.  While some of us may still pout in our bedrooms, we all have our inner sexy desiring to get out and express itself.  We like to help make that expression happen.  Let’s stop pouting and start expressing.  The fantasy begins when I use beams of light bouncing off hair with just the right strokes of makeup and color.   Textured fabrics of a wardrobe selection can pop with electricity in the perfect setting or backdrop.  We have sexy sets to match your every mood.  Whether you’re voluptuous or fun-sized, feeling racy or relaxed, being beautiful is feeling beautiful.  Finally, there’s the magical angle of the camera that screams, “this woman is nothing less than absolutely stunning.”  I believe the Brystan Experience brings a woman’s ultimate fantasy of expressing her amazing sexy self to the very surface of her living and breathing reality.   Open the Door It’s so common for a woman to come to the studio feeling much less than beautiful or amazing.  We women can be very hard on ourselves.  That’s where I feel like I flourish.  I know how liberating it is to free that inner person we were created to be.  I enjoy nothing more than being the bright light that reveals the exit that has always been there.  My camera is a key that opens the door.  Your door. Most of our clients will tell you that even though they come to Brystan Studios to create something special for someone else, in the end they are the ones who get so much more from the experience.  Once again, this is what I live for. Orange County Boudoir Photographer, Lori Brystan, creates an Unforgettable Bridal Boudoir Gift Brittany wanted to create an unforgettable gift for her groom on their wedding night.  These are a few looks from what I’m sure will be a source of love, hope and belief for years to come.  There might be a hint of pouting here and there, but there’s a whole world of expression going on.  And an experience that will live eternal for her.

Gift for the Man who has Everything and Needs Nothing

Gift for the Man who has Everything and Needs Nothing

Gift for the man who has everything and needs nothing.  Keep it simple.  Give him an amazing boudoir wall portrait or fine art photo book of beautiful you!   I promise he will absolutely love it.  And it will remind him just how lucky he is this holiday season! Shine some light on the gift for the man who has everything Painting with light is my passion.  Natural light, studio light, accent lighting or even candle light.  I love them all.  Often times it’s the light that tells your story.  It could be a blast of white that radiates joy.  Maybe it’s the warm glow of a subtle invitation from your eyes.  Sometimes it’s best displayed where light isn’t…in the depth of a shadow or it might even just falloff to complete darkness. In most cases, it’s the subtle use of all the above converging in some way that really captures that intangible human stroke that actually releases the senses to feel the heart of a portrait or the vitality of life captured in the soul of a portrait.  This is what I live for and look forward to every day. The best gift for the man who has everything is love Light is like love…there are so many ways to express it.  I’ll bring the light, you give the love and together we’ll create something special that really reaches your man’s heart and gets his blood pumping!   He may have never say it out loud, but he really wants you to do something like this for him.  Maybe he’s been begging you to create something like this.  Either way, make it the best it can be…give him the absolute best and most beautiful and sexy you.  A stunning boudoir wall portrait or fine art photo book — truly the perfect gift for the man who has everything and needs nothing.  We do it like nobody else.  Every day.  That’s what I live for....
Timeless Orange County Glamour Photography for the Elegant Woman

Timeless Orange County Glamour Photography for the Elegant Woman

IS IT HOT IN HERE OR IS IT JUST ME!!! Timeless Orange County Glamour Photography for the Elegant Woman.  Something every woman can celebrate! I can’t tell you how many woman over 40 call me on the phone to book boudoir appointments.  Almost always with a list of concerns.  They have hopes that I will be able to wave my magic wand and make all of their so called flaws disappear (and I do). I can totally relate since I just turned 50.  My own list of complaints is growing as is my waistline.  I do all the right things: yoga, Retin-A, I try to eat right most of the time.  But, I know that deep down self-acceptance and giving attention to those we love is what really matters in life.  This is what ultimately makes us beautiful.  So I bought some bigger clothes and revamped my personal lingerie collection.  I’m focusing on the things I do like about myself.  When I finally meet my clients for their shoot they almost always blow me away with how they describe themselves.  Their critical description is not the way they look at all.  They are gorgeous, classic beauties!  Then we play dress up, turn the music on, pour some wine or pop some champagne and start shooting.  When they say it’s getting hot in here I now say yes it is.  You’re hot!  That burst of heat is a flood of woman power.  Olga is one of the many women who have recently inspired me.  Her tears of joy after seeing her amazing boudoir book reminded me of why I do what I do.  And I love...
How to prepare for a photo shoot

How to prepare for a photo shoot

  How do I prepare for a photo shoot? I get this question daily. Here’s what I tell our clients. The most important thing is to keep it simple, relax and have fun. This applies to everyone for any type of shoot. How do I prepare for a boudoir shoot? Do I bring my own wardrobe? Do I do my own hair & make-up? Do I spray tan? Can I bring a friend for support? All of these are great questions. You’ll want to bring a beautiful black bra & panties with you and thigh high’s if you want to wear them. If you’re doing a bridal or a softer look, bring a beautiful white (or light colored) bra and panties and thigh highs. Feel free to bring a sexy bustier for your shoot. Over the years, we’ve invested in several beautiful items that you are  welcome to use. We’ve got beautiful wraps, jewelry, hats, gloves and gorgeous feather boas. We have a large wardrobe, hair and make-up room. You can upgrade your shoot to include hair & make-up if you would like. We ask that all clients come with their hair styled as they normally wear it and we will add soft curls & spray to their hair. If we are doing your  make-up, we like to do the full make-up for you. We’ve got every colors for every skin tone. Our photographers are also highly trained make-up artists. Then there’s the spray tan question. No, no, no, please don’t spray tan. Spray tans on occasion can be nice but never before a shoot. You just don’t know how the color will turn out or how even the coverage will be.  You also wouldn’t want any of the color to rub off on your clothes or the sheets during the shoot. We know how important it is to bring a friend for moral support. Boudoir shoots can be a little intimidating if you haven’t done one before. Please feel free to bring a friend with you however, for your sake, we don’t allow friends, boyfriends or husbands on the set. We want you to feel your most comfortable and not self conscious. Last but not least, don’t wait until your body is in “perfect shape”. Most of us never feel like we’re in the best shape. Trust that our photographers will play upon your finest features and create beautiful works of art for you....
