Ryan has become part of our extended family!
Coastal Shots started photographing my family in 2016. The first year it was just my boys and I. Our extended family was so jealous of our pictures that Ryan has been stuck with photographing all of us ever since. It was only fitting that he photograph our wedding. We were so thankful, especially this year. With the pandemic, we weren't even sure it was going to happen. It was so reassuring to know we had a photographer we knew and could trust. Ryan was not only flexible, but patient and reassuring. Not only does Ryan take excellent photos, but he does an amazing job capturing our son Berney who has autism and often will only pose for a brief moment for pictures. All of my favs of him have been shot by Ryan and he surprises me every year with these. I almost never feel the need to take more photos throughout the year and my boys know now this is the one thing they have to do for me every year! Ryan, I can never have too many of these and even if there comes a year we can't make a trip down for the full vacation, I will try and figure out a way to come just for pics! Thank you for also connecting us to Ashley. Because of that Brian and I really were able to celebrate our 27 years together and even amongst the pandemic, it was perfect! We really do consider you part of our family. Wish I could share all of the amazing photos you have taken of us over the years but sharing some of my favs! Love Tara, Brian, Jacob, Berney, and all of Berney's buddies who have made it into our photos.Sent on 10/19/2020

I can't even explain how happy we were with our services. We had a great experience with Coastal Shots Photography. Ryan was so flexible when we had to reschedule and re-plan our wedding because of COVID-19. All of our emails were responded to promptly with friendliness and professionalism. Working with Coastal Shots was so easy from the day we first inquired about a contract to even after we received our photos. The photos turned out amazing!! Ryan clearly knows what he is doing and has such talent. It was one less thing to worry about on our wedding day because we were able to trust Ryan to capture everything we wanted. If you are looking for a photographer, look no further because Coastal Shots Photography is PERFECT!Sent on 10/16/2020

October 2020 Wedding
We hired Coastal Shots for our wedding 10/24/2020. Ryan came recommended to us from our wedding planner, and we loved getting to work with him! With a "COVID Wedding" Ryan was super easy to talk to and flexible with changing the date of engagement shoot and then later changing our wedding venue. Our wedding day was super smooth and easy going, Ryan and his team were very time efficient while remaining incredibly thorough, easy going, funny, and so pleasant to be around. He went over the top to make sure we got every shot we wanted as well as all the ones he could possibly think of in all the combinations - yet making sure we had plenty of time with our guests! I was so excited to see the email from him 4 short weeks after the event, the pictures turned out amazing. We were so impressed with how he caught the magic of our day on film. Highly recommend Ryan and his team, absolutely wonderful. If we ever get back to OBX, will definitely be using him again!Sent on 12/19/2020
Great professional photographers. We have been on many many weddings with these two pros and cant recommend them enough.
We LOVE working with Coastal Shots! Their team is professional, presentable, easy going, and their pictures are beautiful! As a vendor it is always great to have open communication with other vendors while working a wedding. Coastal shots effectively gets all the shots they need, while sticking to the timeline, and are always happy to help other vendors with anything they need. They don't just want the best photos, but they are true team players that want the absolute best day for their couples. They'll show up early, stay late, and their prices are phenomenal. Our clients are always happy with their services, and we can't recommend them enough to our clients! Thank you for all you do!
I've worked with Coastal Shots at several weddings and can attest to their professionalism and talent when it comes to Photography! They are amazing to work with and will always deliver the goods.
