Best thing about day weddings are the siestas.

This June we had the chance to celebrate ten wonderful years of A Bryan Photo. To commemorate, our current team and dear friends Emily & Monty spent an intimate evening in our studio. Over wine and scallops, we shared stories and memories of how God has guided and blessed this venture throughout the past decade. Everyone got the chance to share one of their favorite moments or toast the work of a fellow team member. It was a wonderful evening of laughter, encouragement, remembrance and renewal.
As I think back over the past ten years, I’m most thankful for the experiences and friendships I’ve forged with my clients.
If you have a second, leave a comment and let us know some of your favorite ABP memories over the last 10 years.
My father is a carpenter, and as a kid I got a taste of this every Saturday as I would go to work with him to “help” build houses. As I grew older, I became more interested in computers and art. I graduated with a degree in graphic design and began working for A Bryan Photo doing color work, album, web, and print design.
When we began doing printing in the fall of 2010, I reconnected with working with my hands. I fell in love with the physical and wanted to devote more and more of my time to fine art presentation. It is interesting to think that I have taken much different journey than my father, only to gravitate back toward the same interests.
A few weeks ago, my parents came down, and I explored with my dad in my woodshop on building custom picture frames for A Bryan Photo’s Fine Art Prints. While this is still a work in progress, we are proud of our first frame and the direction we are heading in to deliver quality heirloom products for people to enjoy for decades.

I’m so proud of our production of the play ‘Art’, which ran for 3 nights at the end of February in our studio. Thank you to everyone who came out and supported it. We love that we were able to offer a different type of theatrical experience, one that is more personal and engaging. Special thanks to our actors Matt Godfrey, Bradley Hasemeyer, Mike Rosenbaum for coming to Birmingham from Los Angeles to perform this great show. Here are a few images from the performance.
