Ryan did a fantastic job with our engagement and wedding photos! He was both friendly and professional. For the wedding, he arrived early so that he could survey the property, find the best photo areas, and start shooting. I could tell that he was making every effort to capture the perfect photos for us and to incorporate the shots we wanted. I’m interested in photography (as a hobby), so I appreciated that he occasionally explained why he was using a certain lens, having us stand in a particular area, etc. He was fun to work with. Looking at the photos, you would have never guessed that this was his first time visiting the venue. There are so many beautiful pictures, I don’t know how we’ll choose which ones we want to print! I appreciate his work in capturing our special day.

Ryan and his wife captured every moment beautifully from our special day. They both have a great eye for capturing every detail. Great to work with and I love their partnership with Luminous Events for videography. I would highly recommend Ryan Smith to anyone getting married in the Myrtle Beach (or surrounding) area!

Ryan was the exact professional I was looking for! During our family vacation at Myrtle Beach, I knew capturing the moment with my family of 16 was crucial. I realized that this was a rare opportunity to have everyone together in such a beautiful place, and Ryan's expertise made it all possible. Despite wrangling 10 kids under 7 years old, Ryan remained incredibly patient and maintained a positive attitude throughout the entire photoshoot. His professionalism and skill behind the camera ensured that every moment was beautifully captured. The photos he took will remain as a treasure for all of us. Whenever the grandkids look at the photos, they get excited, wanting to go back to that moment. The fact that the pictures were taken at the beach added an extra layer of beauty and nostalgia to the whole experience. I highly recommend Ryan for anyone looking to capture precious memories with their loved ones. Thank you, Ryan, for going above and beyond to make our family photoshoot such a fantastic experience!

Ryan was quick to respond to our inquiry about taking our family pictures, and he was very flexible at meeting at our desired location since we had a big group of 15. We appreciated his patience with our large group and taking pictures of various family groups + whole group, and we were extremely pleased with the final products. We highly recommend Ryan and will use him again if back in that area. Thank you, Ryan!

Ryan Smith is an excellent photographer, and my fiancé and I had a great time working with him! Ryan did a great job of making my shy fiancé feel comfortable, which made a huge difference throughout the shoot, as well as in how the photos turned out. Ryan was very timely, responsive, and efficient with how he ran the shoot and how he communicated before and after the shoot. We are really happy with our photos!

I recently had the pleasure of working with Ryan for my proposal pictures, and I couldn't be happier with the results.

First and foremost, the communication leading up to the event was exceptional. Ryan took the time to understand my preferences. They were prompt in responding to emails, which helped alleviate any pre-event jitters.

In terms of the final product, I was blown away. The photographs were not just images, they were great memories . The attention to detail and the clarity of the shots were remarkable.

If you're looking for a photographer who will not only capture moments but also create unforgettable memories, look no further than Ryan Smith

For my parents' 50th wedding anniversary, 13 family members gathered for a week in one beach house on Surfside Beach. Ryan came out and did a photo shoot at sunset with us. We were so happy with the results! He made sure to get all the sub-groups of the grandparents with grandkids and the couples, etc., and it was great to have the digital copies. We will treasure these photos from our special week together forever.

Ryan was very professional from day 1. I had some ideas for pictures I wanted and asked for his suggestions. We did everything I wanted and more including his suggestions. He was easy to work with and really made sure we were ok the entire time especially me the bride. He would even pause and let me calm down from the emotions and tell me it’s ok and to breathe. Remarkable person. I would have him do all photography I need for now on. Also, he worked with me on my budget and getting everything I wanted. Amazing person!
