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!

We had a family of 14 that was mostly kids under the age of 6 and Ryan was VERY professional and patient with us. He is very responsive if you have a question or need anything. Also picked out a beautiful location for our pictures. Definitely made our family vacation much more special.

Ryan was awesome! He did such a wonderful job! I myself always feel I take a bad picture but everyone that has seen mine has said how great they turned out! If I was thinner I would have felt better! He took his time and was in no rush and was so patient and awesome! I will use him again if ever I go back to Myrtle Beach! Hire Ryan, he is so great!

Easily 5 stars. Ryan's artistry is top notch, his use of light and shadows makes ordinary photos come to life. His professionalism is unparalleled. In the midst of COVID 19 we were forced to change basically everything we had planned for my daughter's wedding. Venue was changed 3 times, number of guests, time, basically everything, and he was there every step of the way. Always willing to go the extra mile. It was such a relief to know that we had someone who was willing to stick with us regardless. Many thanks for helping to make a very frustrating time beautiful!!!!

My boyfriend and I got our pictures made by Ryan while we were on vacation in Myrtle Beach. Ryan was awesome to work with he had so many good ideas for pictures. I am so so happy with the results. We received right at 300 pictures and I love every single one of them. Will definitely be using Ryan again!!

Ryan was amazing. So easy to work with before, during and after the wedding. I planned my sister's wedding from NJ and Ryan was so accommodating and helpful. I initially said she wasn't really into the typical wedding poses (older bride, very shy), but he got her to pose in ways we never thought she would, and in every picture she looks like she's having a fabulous time. The resulting photos are gorgeous - I can't say enough great things about Ryan. A definite recommend!!

Ryan was so easy to work with and gave our family a beautiful gift. My mom has stage 4 cancer and we have never captured full family photos before. I will treasure these always!

We found Ryan via the AWESOME online reviews and are very happy that we did! He was so easy to work with and pushed us to be more creative/fun with the pictures... very glad he did! The pictures are wonderful and he turned them around much faster than most other photographers from what I understand. Highly recommend!! (I mean, look at this AWESOME picture from our ceremony)

Ryan was great to work with for our family pictures! We had a larger group, with 5 active kids. He was able to get amazing shots and the helped the kids have fun. Ryan is all about getting that perfect candid shot and let the kids run wild! Those were some of our favorite pictures. Thank you Ryan for perfectly capturing our family!

Ryan photographed Brad's and my engagement pictures and he did such an amazing work! He was incredibly friendly, helped us feel relaxed throughout the process, and so so kind. He got the pictures to us exactly when he said he would and they turned out absolutely beautiful. I highly recommend Ryan as your photographer, whether it be for engagement pictures, your wedding, family photos, or anything. He will do a wonderful job!

Ryan Smith was such a pleasure to work with for our destination wedding! He had his classic pictures he took which I love, but also allowed and encouraged us to take other fun pictures as well. While it rained on our wedding day, he offered to take us back out for additional pictures, we were still able to capture some amazing pictures despite the weather! He was truly great to work with!

Ryan was amazing. We had a difficult 2 year old and a group of 7 adults. Everything came out amazing, the couples photos, the large group family photos and the individual. He recommended a beautiful place and we had a great time and had everything back with in a few days. Would highly highly highly recommend.

Ryan did an outstanding job with our photo shoot which involved 5 teenagers and 4 adults. He had a great sense of humor and tolerance for our fun and playfulness. He was able to capture shots of our son that no one has ever captured before. I would totally recommend Ryan for your photography needs.

I don't know how Ryan did it. Under the circumstances (two tired kids, some family awkwardness, the heat and humidity, etc.), there were a staggering number of our photos that were not just gorgeous but downright miracles. I seriously thought there might be just 2 or 3 based on the wiggliness of my 1 and 4yo so I am incredibly pleased. Ryan was easy to work with, communicated well, and was not phased in the least by our rowdy angels or nervous adults. The color and the light in the pictures are so beautiful, and we are having such fun poring over them and deciding which ones to order!

Ryan is the most wonderful photographer we have ever come across, hands down. Super easy to work with, very friendly, and got the BEST angles and lighting. For someone who is self conscious about photos of myself, I felt awesome in our engagement photos. He even allowed our family and all 7 dogs to be in the photo. We cannot thank you enough, Ryan. Everyone loves them!!! Can’t wait for the wedding!!
