Ryan Smith was a true dream to work with for our wedding day! His friendly presence and creativity truly make him an excellent photographer - and very patient as well! He captured the magic and loving energy of the night so beautifully and really knows how to take great pictures on the beach. We loved having him as our photographer and 10/10 would recommend again!
We came from out of state for our wedding in Myrtle Beach and Ryan was an outstanding find for our engagement and wedding photos! Ryan was incredibly helpful and flexible right off the bat when we reached out. We scheduled an engagement photoshoot with Ryan a few months before the wedding to get to know him better and learn his style before the big day. Because we were unfamiliar with the area, Ryan helped us find a great location and delivered some of the most beautiful engagement photos I've ever seen in a very short timeline. Because we were only in town for a short time Ryan was even generous enough to invite us to his home office after the engagement photos to talk through the wedding day plan and what to expect. On the day of the wedding Ryan and his lovely assistant (his wife:) arrived right on schedule and began shooting detail shots and setting up the photo booth in the background while us girls hung out upstairs and got ready. Throughout the day Ryan was very helpful making suggestions about lighting/locations and reminding us of photos we had wanted done. One thing I had specifically asked Ryan for on the day of the wedding was exterior shots of the venue in day and night setting since we were drawn to the place for it's beauty and Ryan absolutely delivered. The exteriors are some of my favorite shots and I cannot wait to add them to our included photo album. Normally I do not like having my photo taken as I'm conscious about how it will turn out, but Ryan made the day easy and fun for everyone (including the younger members of our bridal party). We cannot believe that he was able to turn around our wedding album in just under 2 weeks with it being the start of wedding season (mid-May) and we are in love with all our photos. Cannot recommend Ryan enough for wedding or engagement photos - we had a blast and love the result!
Thank you Ryan for working with us and for capturing so many amazing moments of our wedding day. From the start, we knew Ryan would be the perfect fit. His easy to work with personality, confidence, experience, and quality shined through his photos and made us feel so comfortable. His communication was excellent and was there to answer any questions, concerns, and ideas we had.
On the wedding day, Ryan did an amazing job of taking our photos in a noninvasive way. It was natural and fun !!! The photo gallery we received over exceeded our expectations. We have so many beautiful photos that help us relive our special day. I would hire him again and again and highly recommend him for any photos you may need!
We had so much fun taking these pictures and Ryan was totally fun and patience to work with, he knows his business very well. If anyone is looking for a professional photographer, I recommend Ryan. I loved every minute of the time we had with him and the pictures are so very Hollywood type, we love them all. Thanks again Ryan.
Ryan Smith did such an amazing job on both our engagement photos and wedding photos. He went above and beyond to capture the best moments of our lives. I highly recommend him for all your photo needs! He's now our forever photographer.
Ryan was fantastic to work with ... especially being from out of state and trying to set up family photos while on vacation. Everything was easy breezy and the photos are simply amazing which is an accomplishment in itself when you add a two year old into the mix. 10 out of 10. Highly recommend!
We loved working with Ryan. He was the first vendor we booked. I was impressed that he didn't need to use a heavy filter on his pictures (like some photographers we looked at) for them to be beautiful. He did both our engagement and wedding photos and we were not disappointed with anything he did. He was easy to communicate with and was everywhere on the wedding day. He captured some really beautiful moments and some moments we missed completely!
If you want a friendly and super talented photographer that's easy to get along with that takes fantastic pictures this is your guy. We are so pleased with our choice. These pictures are all that's left of our day and we are so happy with our choice.
When touring wedding venues with my fiancé, we heard the same name over and over: a photographer named Ryan Smith. When I looked up his website, it was easy to see why — his pictures are stunning. He sees light in a way that makes each photo gorgeous, and even the sunniest outdoor shoots are perfectly balanced and never washed out. We met and hired Ryan right away, and just had our engagement photos done (he is also doing our wedding in September). It was the first professional photography session my fiancé and I have done together, and Ryan made us feel both at ease. Our pictures turned out amazing— we are both so very happy with them! Would definitely recommend Ryan Smith Photography to anyone planning a wedding or wanting professional photographs done.
We are so glad we found Ryan Smith Photography to take our family photos on the beach last summer! He was super accommodating, very timely (emails, photo turn around) not to mention he was phenomenal with all 9 of us humans AND three dogs!!!! When searching for a photographer we were shocked at the prices some companies charged per picture, Ryan's prices are super fair and we couldn't be happier with how they all came out! With 9 people, it's tough to make sure everyone is looking good but Ryan handled the job like the pro he is!!
Clients for Life! In 2014, my husbands family sought a Myrtle Beach photographer to capture family memories of our ten years vacationing there! The photos he captured were amazing and still adorn the walls of our homes. Fast forward to Fall 2018, when my family was finally ALL making the trip to Myrtle Beach for a visit at my parents timeshare. There was no question that I wanted updated photos done by Ryan! He managed to not only capture family shots of all, but photos of my parents with all of their children and grandchildren. The experience of having Ryan as your photographer is seamless from the booking all the way to the gallery. I can not recommend his work enough! We will be back for sure!
Ryan is an amazing photographer. From the engagement pictures to the pictures on our wedding day, he is very talented. He’s very experienced particularly at our wedding venue and he knew all the great spots to take pictures and has wonderful ideas on different poses and how to make your pictures look beautiful. Very quick with getting our pictures back to us as well! Thanks Ryan!
I cannot express how easy going & professional Ryan is. After being snubbed by an original photographer suggested by a friend, I went with my gut & reached out to Ryan per the request of my venue! He was so easy to communicate with & his volume of work was great so needless to say, I was extremely satisfied. His energy was also great, he genuinely wanted to be a part of our day & take great photos of everything. He has a good eye for backdrops & scenery & let’s you just be you. He was great with the kids at the venue & I recommend him for great, gorgeous family photos! If you are looking for a sweet, kind, energetic photographer, Ryan Smith is it!
I would highly recommend Ryan for your photography needs. We traveled to Myrtle Beach from Ohio to get our engagement pictures done on the beach. Ryan was helpful, engaged, and responded quickly to emails for scheduling details. Our session was fun and Ryan made sure that posing looked natural. He was professional throughout. Our pictures turned out amazing and we are very pleased with his work. Worth every penny!
Ryan was so easy to work with! I am incredibly glad we picked him to take our family summer vacation pictures. He was very prompt with emails, answered all the questions I had prior to committing, and was very pleasant and sweet to work with when meeting in person. He was quick with his photography capturing all the requests my family had and got everything in before it rained that evening. He was great with my 1 year old capturing his smiles even when he was on the move and worked well arranging our large group. We would absolutely contact him again! I highly recommend him!
I had the pleasure of Ryan capturing our beach wedding and I could not have been happier with my choice. I was very nervous about choosing a photographer out of state for our destination wedding but I knew I liked his work when I saw his pictures . He was took his time and made sure that every detail with every photo was perfect. Very personable and fun to be around I can not wait to see our wedding photos but I already know they will be great.
Thank you for everything Ryan
Our pictures turned out amazingly! Ryan was professional and helpful. He kept in communication and was on time. Great experience overall. Thank you, Ryan
I would highly recommend Ryan Smith! I had always dreamed of having family pictures at the beach. I searched Ryan online and was so glad that I did. He responded right away to any questions. He was also flexible with our location as he recommended his favorite spot but also didn't mind coming to me. We was great to work with my children and had great ideas for poses. My pictures look fabulous. I am so happy with the results!
Ryan was great to work with! He took our engagement pictures in July 2017 and our wedding pictures in June 2018. We are not the most photogenic couple and he helped us out and told us exactly what to do and the pictures turned out great! He was easy to communicate with via email and was on time for both events. We are glad we chose Ryan as our photographer!
