Modern, unique and beautiful wedding, engagement and family photography for Myrtle Beach, SC.

Please get in touch!

Thank you for visiting Ryan Smith Photography! I have been one of the top local photographers in Myrtle Beach for over 13 years. My simple, clean, crisp and colorful images capture moments in a unique way. I do this by using specialty prime lenses, skillful lighting and careful editing for true color and proper exposure. I also use a mix of natural light and off camera studio strobes for soft and dynamic portrait lighting. Using modern techniques, you will always see the details of a bride’s white dress, as well as the beautiful colors of a sunset.

My goal is to always capture genuine emotions using a fun, candid approach mixed with traditional posed portraits. My personality is very fun and easy going, I’m happy to try any fun ideas that you like. Because I have been a Myrtle Beach photographer for over a decade, I know the area well and the unique challenges of beach photography. I also do whatever I can to make sure my clients are happy and to keep my excellent reputation. While I’m based in Myrtle Beach, I also travel to many other areas of the Carolinas.
