“Lori and her team are absolutely amazing! We used Brystan for our engagement and wedding photos. They nailed every part of our wedding day, from getting ready to the ceremony to getting all of the most memorable reception and party pics. My wife also surprised me with a boudoir fine art album which came out beautifully! She loved the experience, and both of us could not be happier! Brystan is hands down the BEST studio in SoCal. Thank you to everyone who made it a flawless experience! Love you guys!!” BILLY & CARRIE
“I just wanted to say I went in a little skeptical. I wanted to do a very specific boudoir shoot for my husband so I went ahead and gave it a shot. OMG!!! First off, the staff is so welcoming and professional. I’m SUPER self-conscious about my body and doing a boudoir shoot was SO out of my element, but Lori made me feel so at ease, comfortable and I actually started having fun! I’ve never felt more beautiful!! I usually hate every picture taken of me, but out of the 50+ photos Lori took, I could barely narrow down ANY I didn’t like. I can’t WAIT to see my album, and I’ll definitely be coming back for more portrait sessions in the future!” KIMBERLY CHRISTINE M.
“I felt extremely comfortable with Lori and she did my makeup and hair. I loved the actual shoot-painless, quick and the pictures are all artwork!
I went back for my viewing and the Creative Director was wonderful. So kind and helpful and wasn’t afraid to give her opinion when I asked which ones she liked. The WHOLE experience was amazing, and I would do it again in a heartbeat! The pictures came out UNREAL! That’s all I can say! You PAY for what you get in life and let me say the price you pay for these shots, is nothing when you see the reward of the work she does!”
