Bryce Langston Marriage and Personal Life
Not a lot is publicly known about Bryce’s personal life, including siblings. However, his marital life is a different story.
Bryce Langston is married to Rasa Pescud. She is a New Zealand based, self taught videographer, photographer.
Pescud is involved in the production of ‘Living Big in a Tiny House’, filming and editing it, as well as assisting in other production matters.
Rasa Pescud is also a model, and was a contestant at the Miss World New Zealand in 2013.
At that time, she was a caregiver at the Auckland Spinal Rehabilitation Unit.
Today, she is believed to be involved full time with their YouTube channel.
Ms Pescud and Mr. Langston met around 2015. She was Pilates instructor at that time and had never operated a camera before.
Pescud started working with Langston around this time, when the regular camera operator could not accompany him for a shoot in New Zealand’s South Island.
Since then, she has grown in that role, and from Langston’s own admission, she is now much better than him at the task.
While the two have been together ever since, it’s unclear whether there has been any nuptials. Neither of them has posted wedding pictures.
In this video, Pescud narrates how it all got started.

In a matter of months, he would be touring tiny houses all over New Zealand.
The show gained traction and recognition very early on, and soon Google invited him to represent New Zealand in an adventure race in Japan.
While in Japan, Bryce took advantage and sought tiny home owners in the country, and these became his first tours and videos outside his home country.
Since then, he has toured tiny houses in North America, Australia and Europe.
