Myrtle Beach Photographers


Wedding, Family, & Engagement

As a local Myrtle Beach portrait photographer, I specialize in beautiful, unique and fun wedding, engagement, family and photo booth photography. I love clean, crisp and colorful images that capture moments in a way that can only be done with skillful and modern techniques using the latest high-end photography gear. In addition, my pictures have a unique look because I only prime lenses on full frame Nikon camera bodies. Every photography session is shot by myself personally. My goal is to always capture genuine emotions using a storytelling approach mixed with traditional posed portraits. Ryan Smith Photography has been a local licensed business in Myrtle Beach, SC for over 10 years. Because I have been a local professional for so many years, 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.

Wedding in Myrtle Beach

Weddings

As a Myrtle Beach wedding photographer with many years of experience, I understand how to create timeless images that will look as good in 20 years as they do today. I do this by using specialty lenses and skillful editing for true color and proper exposure. Because of this you will always see the details in a bride’s dress in my photography, as well as the realistic and beautiful colors of a sunset. Wedding photography prices range from $600 for small intimate beach ceremonies to $3750 for all day wedding coverage with two wedding photographers, a deluxe album and fun photo booth. All packages also include a beautiful online wedding gallery to share with family and friends as well as the digital files with a copyright release.
