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...

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.

I am grateful to Brystan for showing me the beauty of my body and soul. Lori was able to reach down into my soul and bring it out into the daylight. I had no idea I was that beautiful.

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.

These photos are amazing and they are capturing a memory of our little girl right before she goes off to college. What parent wouldn't want this memory? Lori has been doing our pictures for years. She's the best stylist and most artistic photographer ever! It's the whole package rolled into one genius studio!

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!

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.

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.

… (Lori Brystan) comes with a wealth of reputation in talent, grace and professionalism. What impresses me most about Lori is that she doesn't help you transcend time, she absolves time through her camera which is a window of her soul shared in her artistry. She is truly a Master in her profession and wears this distinction so well because of her huge heart.

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.
