The Art Of Life

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...

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.

From the moment I walked in, I felt a sense of calmness but when we started shooting, I felt sexy but that’s not all - I felt comfortable and all of a sudden I felt so in control of my life and what I wanted. I felt more beautiful - in a way I cannot even put into words. I walked out feeling ‘I am woman’ and like no one or no experience could ever tear me down again like I am everything I ever needed to be. I was enough and that, you cannot put a price on. Lori, you made me feel more beauty than I’ve ever seen in myself. I will love you forever for that gift!

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 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!

I have personally known Lori for a very long time and am a long-term client of hers. She is extremely professional and has an amazing artistic eye. I also want to point out that her team is equally professional. Lori has a great ability to make her clients feel comfortable at every shoot. I would highly recommend Lori to all my friends, family and collogues. The products offered by Lori are made of the best quality, I have never not been satisfied. Thank you for helping make memories Lori, kudos to you and your success. It's truly earned and deserved. I look forward too many more shoots and doing much more business with you in the future.

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.

We loved how wonderful Lori was with the kids, making them feel so comfortable that they had the most beautiful smiles. That in itself is hard to find in a photographer. Thank you Lori for creating a beautiful memory for our family!

Katie G.

It took us so long to become pregnant so you can only imagine how excited we were to photograph and document every beautiful stage of our new family. We are forever grateful that you captured the most important moments in the first year of our child’s life. Every day I walk by the art you created for our home it brings happy tears to my eyes... thank you.

I can't begin to tell you how amazing my experience was at Brystan Studios. I had a classic beauty shoot done by Lori, the owner and I have never been more comfortable. Her kindness and vulnerability made me feel like I had known her forever.  This showed in my shoot and the fact that I was so comfortable, made my photos look so amazing. She makes you feel like you are her best friend and she makes you feel beautiful! I am so happy with the amazing wall portrait I purchased and so well worth it.  I can't wait to schedule my family portrait in August!

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!

Dear Lori, I really didn’t have the words to properly thank you. As a mom I run around making sure everybody else is taken care of and fall into bed exhausted night after night. As the years have gone by I very rarely look in the mirror and when I do I only see how I have aged. I was terrified to have my pictures taken - even more so to view them. I see glimpses of Mava and pieces of my doughters in me. I LOVE the pictures. We all do. Thank you for helping me see I am still in there - still Mava. This gift means the world to me. Thank you so very much.
