Studio Veil Team

Ryan Veil

I love what I do and try never to take for granted that our clients have chosen to work with me and Studio Veil for their event. When I'm not working, I enjoy playing & watching various sports, cycling, bowling, watching movies, walking our dog, and woodworking. I love being a dad and little daughter snuggles are the best. You should also know that I have an addiction to ice cream - there is no cure. I absolutely love amusement parks and haunted houses and I wish the State Fair was a year-round occasion. I grew up in ND, MN, PA and MD and I love to travel!

Studio Veil Roles Include: Photographer, Videographer, DJ, Photo Booth Attendant, Client Services, Day-to-Day Operations

Allie Veil

With the exception of college, I've lived in Minnesota all my life. When I met Ryan in 2007, I knew he was the right one for me because he didn't judge me for my addiction to Lucille Ball and I Love Lucy. Whether it's a blank wall needing home decor, an empty canvas needing artwork, or a cupcake needing fondant and frosting, I love decorating and creating art. My faith and family are most important to me, including our daughter Savannah and dog Lucy. I really enjoy drawing, sewing, painting, baking and cake decorating. I also like bowling, playing board games, walking our dog and watching movies with my hubby.

Studio Veil Roles Include: Graphic design and Company vision casting

Holly Briant

I joined the studio veil team Summer of 2014. Whether I'm creating video memories or laughing with guests at a photo booth, I've always enjoyed capturing life's special moments on camera and creating lasting memories. In my free time you will find me indulging in my cupcake addiction, shopping, taking pictures outside, creating sweet desserts and enjoying late nights with friends.

Studio Veil Roles Include: Videographer, Video Editor, Photo Booth Attendant

Jeffery Mapes

I got the call to join the AV team of studio veil toward the end of 2017. Now a days you can find me behind a sound board, controlling a camera, running a computer or taking one of those things apart. I love my wife, the BWCA, and the Photo Bus.

P.S. Yes Ryan lets me wax the photo bus. Try not to be too jealous.

Studio Veil Roles include: AV freelancer and Keeper of the photo bus
