Myrtle Beach Photographers

Ryan Smith Photography

Ryan Smith has been one of the best local Myrtle Beach photographers for over 11 years. I specialize in beautiful, unique and fun wedding, engagement and family photography. I love simple, clean, crisp and colorful images that capture moments in a unique way. I do this with skillful and modern techniques using the latest high-end photography gear and expert lighting. My goal is to always capture genuine emotions using a storytelling approach mixed with traditional posed portraits. Because I have been a local professional 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 serve other areas such as Pawleys Island, Sunset Beach, Charleston are more.

Myrtle Beach Wedding Photography

As a Myrtle Beach wedding photographer with over a decade of experience, I know how to create artistic and timeless images that will look as good in 20 years as they do today. I do this by using specialty lenses, expert lighting and skillful editing for true color and proper exposure. 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 a fun photo booth. My most popular package is $2000. 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.

Myrtle Beach Engagement Photography

Engagement photography sessions at beautiful locations in Myrtle Beach like the SC State Parks, Atalaya Castle, Conway Riverwalk, Pawleys Island and more range from $300 during most months to $400 during the summer. Engagement portrait sessions are relaxed and fun. While I will suggest poses, I’m also happy to try anything you like as well. I use the same specialty lenses, off camera lighting and skillful editing that I use at weddings. Because of this, your pictures will have a unique and timeless look. In addition, I specialize in surprise engagement proposals and have many beautiful examples on my blog.

Myrtle Beach Family & Senior Photography

My prices for Myrtle Beach area family beach photography range from $300 during most months to $400 during the summer. These include hundreds of posed and candid pictures of your family enjoying the beach and other outdoor locations together. There are also no limits on family groupings or number of shots taken and digital copies are included. I prefer to take the pictures about one hour before sunset at the Huntington Beach State Park using one of my included park passes, or I’m happy to come to your preferred location.

We had an awesome experience with Ryan! He was very professional and easy to work with. He went out of his way to meet us in Cherry Grove and the pictures turned out great!

Brookgreen Gardens wedding? I wouldn’t have used anyone but Ryan. His work speaks for itself and he’s a nice person on top of all of that! Simply the BEST!

Ryan was great! Highly recommend. He was very patient with our family of 6 and the dog. Pictures came out fantastic even though weather was not great.
