About Us
B. A. Bireley Photography is a family owned photography studio located in Galeton, a small
town nestled in the mountains of North Central Pennsylvania. Brad and Kristyn Bireley fell in
in search of a simpler life.
Brad’s passion for photography began in 1973 with the purchase of his first camera. Four
years later, Brad was photographing weddings, family portraits and baby portraits. After the
move north, Brad’s love of the outdoors took over and he concentrated on his nature
photography and different endeavors in the fly fishing business.
In 2003, however, yet another passion came into Brad’s life-his daughter was born. With her
birth came a new perspective on the value of family, and the importance of preserving as
many precious moments as possible. Brad wiped the dust off his portrait equipment, and
without even yet realizing it, B. A. Bireley Photography had begun.
We believe that God has created and gifted each person uniquely. Our desire is to capture
that essence in each and every portrait.
