That "Forever" Moment — Where Life Stands Still, And Your Story Unfolds.

Brystan Studios: The Premier Orange County Photographer

You know those precious times in your life where the clock seems to stop, and you wish you could live in the moment forever?

They don't happen every day but, when they do, they're burned into your memory as a treasured chapter in your ever-growing life story.

Most of these moments pass by undocumented, preserved only in your own memory. Sadly, they can only be shared with friends and family through verbal stories with no photographs to truly bring them to life.

Which is why you understand the importance of capturing as many of those moments as possible, while you can.

Brystan Studios, a luxury photography studio in Orange County, California, is here to help you do just that.

With over 30 years of artistry behind her, Lori is a visual storyteller with a distinctive sense of style and imagery designed to capture the true soul of the memorable moments in your life.

For example, the:

  • Sweet innocence of babies...
  • Burning passion of boudoir...
  • Infinite possibilities of the teenage years...
  • Deep love and authentic connection of families...
  • Impact of a well-branded business...

I have taken a lot of photos but hands down the images I just shot with Lori are the best ones I have even taken. She is such a gifted artist! She has an eye for composition and she knows how to capture images that are the ultimate expression of beauty and sensuality. Thank you Lori!

Thank you, thank you, thank you. You have made this part of my professional presence a no brainer!!! Ready for more…

Lori Brystan is a true artist, a Da Vinci. She uses her palette to bring out the best in her subject. After working in the Hollywood industry for over 25 years, I was thrilled to find an exceptional photographer here in South Orange County.

I’m not one to write reviews but Lori is beyond worth the effort! She has been capturing the spirit of my kids and family since they were babies. Our home is covered in beautiful photos that she has captured and is more beautiful and meaningful than any artwork to me! Every year I make sure we do at least one shoot with Lori and I am so thankful that we do and will continue to do so! Even when I feel unattractive and think I’m just going to do the kids this year, Lori will convince me to get just a couple and they end up being beautiful and photos I cherish forever! She captures the love I have for my husband, our family and the love our girls have for each other. Lori is the best and we are so lucky to have met her early enough to have all the beautiful photos of our girls from babies to teens and we are not stopping anytime soon.

Today I embarked on the next chapter of my life, with an intention that the BEST is yet to come! In order to set this intention for my life, I booked a fabulous photo shoot with Lori Brystan herself. I only heard wonderful testimony of her, but to actually experience a photo shoot with Lori, I can say the experience is second to none. She gave me the confidence and enthusiasm to express my full self in confidence, vulnerability, sensuality and style. It was a lot of fun too! By turning 50, Lori empowers women to believe that our soul, our beauty or our hears never age. Rather we become more youthful in optimism for the future. I thank Lori for empowering me through the most incredible photo shoot I have ever experienced. Having this experience with Lori changes the way I feel about myself and my future in the most positive and profound way possible. Heartfelt thanks.

During the photoshoot with Lori, I felt the most beautiful I’ve ever felt in my entire life. Lori and John were incredibly fun to work with and they made the shoot a really enjoyable and memorable experience. The photos that came out of my shoot are pictures that I will have with me for the rest of my life and are better than I could have ever imagined. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else for a photographer.

Time flies when you're having fun. When we became a family of three, the years have never moved so swiftly. We are so grateful Lori has been here to capture our most precious moments. Her talent is unmatched as a creative, warm & passionate artist. I can always count on Lori to tell our family story through photos, highlighting the soul & personality of our family.

Where do I start…Lori is awesome! I went in for a shoot because I was going through a break-up and needed quality time for myself. I decided to do the “white sheet” photo shoot! They made me look like a model! Haha, well at least that’s what I told myself.  The pictures were amazing! No joke! Also, keep in mind the shoot was totally nude! I had never done anything like it but I admit I felt at ease and it was a great experience!!! I will definitely go back….It’s a bit far from where I live but worth the drive!

Lori has been our family photographer for over 20 years.  She has captured the growth of my children, provided me with amazing headshots for my business, and been a part of seeing our lives change.
