Hi, I am Bryan, I am the owner and lead photographer of A Life Built for Two. I am the creative mind behind the camera. I really have been photographing as long as I can remember, but I’ve been in the portrait and wedding side of this industry since 2016.
My beautiful wife and I got recently got married in December of 2018, and I am the father of two crazy, furry children. When it comes to the way I live my life, I would say I follow my heart and don’t necessarily take the wide path. I decided to skip out on college and a 9 to 5 job to chase a dream and my passion.
At the core of who I am, you will find a math and science geek. I love knowing the how’s and the why’s, and I love thinking creatively and challenging my brain. I love using natural light and flash in creative ways to bounce and reflect, illuminating my subject and capturing fleeting moments in the most beautiful way possible. To me, photography is an art, which requires a trained eye and the ability to think outside the box. Each image is a priceless moment and work of art that will stand the test of time.
I am the kind of person who will tell you how it is. I don’t pretend that I am perfect, and I won’t lie and say that I have all of my ducks in a row. What I can promise is that I will give you my 110% to capture and deliver genuine photos that capture life through the eye of an average joe. In this way, when your great granddaughter is looking at your wedding photos in 80 years, she too will feel as if she knew you in that moment.

Hi I’m Laikyn, I am the marketing and operations manager of A Life Built for Two. While working with us, you will know me as the photography assistant. I will be setting up and holding lights, and I am always available as an extra set of hands, ready to help where needed. You may also know me as the behind the scenes guru, as I am the one typically keeping our social media up to date, updating our website, and even sending you emails!
I am a dabbler and a dreamer by nature, and I love to learn and try new things. I have experience working with hair, and I have a newfound passion of arranging flowers. I love working with people, and I would have to say that meeting with clients and hearing their vision for their photos has to be one of my favorite parts about what I do.
When I’m not working behind the computer, you can find me improving my sewing skills, taking a walk with my husband and our puppy Willy, snuggling our cat Wolfie, painting, reading a book by Malcolm Gladwell, or coming up with my newest great idea. I would call myself a conservative adventurist, meaning that I love to explore, but when it comes to bugs, spiders, or getting really dirty, I tend to reconsider.
I believe that growth comes from stepping outside of your comfort zone, there is no such thing as too much dessert, and no dream is impossible to achieve. We are here, living out our dream, being the best team we can be, so we can serve and support you on your journey.
Laikyn (Marketing and Operations Manager)
