Ryan photographed my wedding in October and we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. He is quick with responding to any questions, the pictures came out crisp and clear, and he is such a sweet person. The entire wedding party felt comfortable around him and I think that makes or breaks a photo session. With wedding photography you definitely get what you pay for and Ryan was nothing less than excellent!
I contacted Ryan with maybe a 2 week notice because we were unable to get other photographers to return emails.
Ryan was quick to answer my emails and was thorough in responding to my questions.
He is very accommodating as far as location (although we chose to meet him at a public park/Beach access).
We had 2 SMALL children with us and he did great with them! He captured their facial expressions we see every day, which was our preference (not the 'stiff picture' look!).
We knew up front that he was about 3 weeks out as far as turn-around time on getting photos edited.... and he had them ready in exactly the time he quoted.
The photos were GREAT quality and seemed to be edited with great care. We absolutely would recommend anyone use Ryan for their photography needs in Myrtle Beach. He was a pleasure to work with and will meet your needs, I am sure!
Ryan was an absolute dream to work with and cannot recommend him enough! From the time of booking to the wedding day, his communication was comforting and timely. My husband and I had a unique experience as our wedding was only 19 people. This gave him extra time with just the two of us. He took us all around the resort getting a variety of photos. Our favorites were at sunset on the beach and along a row of palm trees. Being a midsized bride I was self-conscious in my appearance. His suggestions for poses were on point. I have never looked to good in a photo! He seriously made us look like models in these photos. We are SO pleased with everything. NO need to look anywhere else.
Ryan is a dream to work with! He did pictures for our family in 2021, and when we got engaged the following year we knew we wanted to hire him for our wedding! He is very professional and adaptable. The pictures came out BEAUTIFULLY!! I love his use of light and color. Hiring the right photographer for your wedding is one of the most important decisions you can make because when your day is over, all that’s left is pictures and memories. I’m pleased to say we made the right choice!!
Ryan is a fantastic photographer! With 3 young children, I was nervous on how our session would go. Ryan was incredibly professional, friendly, and most importantly, patient! We were blown away with the shots that he got and will use one of them for our Christmas card photo this year. We are so thankful to have captured such happy times at the beach with our young family. We are Ryan's biggest fans!! 5 stars all the way!
Ryan did an amazing job with our crew! He was professional and fun. Pictures can be a task when you have 4 littles, but he made it a breeze! It was hard to choose our favorites as we loved them all!
We are so glad we had Ryan take more pictures for us! We used him to take our surprise engagement pictures 6 years ago and came back this year for maternity photos. He was again great to work with, made us feel comfortable during the shoot, took fantastic photos, and returned them very quickly. I highly recommend Ryan and cannot wait to go back to him to take family photos!
Ryan was great to work with! Very accommodating and picked a great location! We love our family photos and were pleasantly surprised how quickly we got them back.
Ryan Smith Photography was great!! It was easy to set up the appointment and he spent a lot of time capturing the perfect family pictures. We will be using him yearly.
July 2023, destination wedding bride: We absolutely LOVED our experience with Ryan Smith. He is incredibly helpful, detail oriented, and patient. While I was living in Tennessee and planning a Myrtle Beach wedding, Ryan helped answer any questions I had and gave wonderful timeline suggestions, allowing us to take advantage of the time we had with him. I am typically camera shy, and he made portraits painless! We can already tell the photos are amazing, and he even put together social media posts for us to enjoy the next day! 10/10 would book with him again, and strongly recommend!!
My fiancé and I recently had our engagement photoshoot with Ryan and the session was wonderful. He is a true professional with so much knowledge to capture the absolute best photos. We are not the most comfortable couple in front of a camera but Ryan made the whole process fun and easy. I’m even more excited now for him to be our photographer on our wedding day! Could not recommend him more!!
From Bride: Wonderful photographer! Very professional, kind and calm during our chaotic wedding. Highly recommend!
From Mother: Ryan was very professional and extremely helpful as our wedding location changed last minute. He had great suggestions and need no direction from us. He got some amazing shots and we got our pictures earlier than expected. I would highly recommend him to anyone and would use him again if the opportunity arose. I could not have chosen a better photographer for my daughter's wedding
Just book it. Ryan is awesome to work with. We had requested a split of the time allotted and he checked all of out boxes. We will book again! The photos turned out better than I imagined. Thanks so much!
My family has been scattered across the country for the past several years. We finally have everyone back together for a vacation. I found Ryan Smith simply from a random Google search for photographers in the Myrtle Beach area and I am beyond thankful to have found him. To say I am extremely happy with our photos would be an understatement. They are simply beautiful. I dreamed of something a little "different" than just a beach photo and Ryan delivered. If you are visiting the area or if you are searching for great photographer, you can't go wrong with Ryan Smith.
Ryan is a genuine person that captures beautiful photos! He made my fiancé feel comfortable during our session and took his time to personalize our photo shoot to capture photos we get to cherish for a lifetime. I can not express the gratitude nor the admiration I have with the photos he has taken. He has left us even more excited for the wedding.
We used Ryan for a family photo shoot during our vacation to Pawley's Island. He was super easy to work with both before, during and after process. Very responsive to emails and questions that I had before and after our photo shoot. Made teen/tween and grandparents feel at ease and accommodated for physical limitations in the grandparents. Photos turned out GREAT despite a cloudy day. The photolab he uses is very comparably priced to other online photolabs and the products we purchased turned out great. Would highly recommend. I wish we lived closer so we could use him for senior pictures in a couple of years!
Ryan was an absolute pleasure to work with and helped capture my dream wedding perfectly. He responded quickly to my questions and requests, accommodated my desires and provided his expertise. Ryan seemed well connected locally which also creates a smoothness as he knows what to do and how to do it before he even arrives at the location. The pictures he captured will be forever cherished. Thank you, Ryan!
Ryan is a fantastic professional photographer! He captured some beautiful engagement photos for my fiance and I, and we enjoyed working with him. I cannot wait to see the wedding pictures!
