We got our engagement photos done by Ryan during our vacation in the Outer Banks. From the beginning, he was super quick with responding and answering all of my questions. The photoshoot itself was so much better than we anticipated, as we have never gotten professional photos done before. We felt so at ease and he made the experience such a positive one. He got all of the great poses and shots that we had in mind and had a great creative eye. All of our photos are gorgeous, natural looking and were emailed to us within 24 hours! Overall, it was an amazing 45 minutes that flew by! Thanks again Ryan!

As the groom I honestly was not that excited or frankly on board with the photography aspect however I have never been more wrong. Ryan was so much fun to work with from the very beginning throughout the event. He was super responsive and informative as well as helpful from the very beginning and throughout planning. He and his assistant were both so much fun to work with and I'm someone who frankly does not like having photos taken of himself. Additionally throughout the event he was available for group photos and at the same time near invisible to get action and event shots. Then we got the results... and a better writer could describe the joy and surprise that both I and my bride are feeling since seeing them.
We couldn't recommend higher! Loved it all!!Sent on 12/06/2019

Amazing photographers, even better people!
Ryan and his team were amazing to work with! We got both our engagement and wedding photos done through Coastal Shots, and we are in love with all of our photos!!
Ryan keeps things very casual, which was so helpful to us so we didn't feel awkward. I highly recommend taking advantage of the engagement shoot so that on your wedding day you are already acquainted and know what poses/angles work best.
In addition to amazing photography skills, Ryan was a huge asset to helping things run smoothly on our wedding day. He and his partner took the lead on directing us when needed, his partner pinned on all of our boutonnieres (she was the only one who knew how!), and he was even on the phone with our lighting vendor trying to fix a strand of lights that went out for us towards the end of our reception. You won't find another photographer as committed to your wedding day as they are!
They are truly amazing photographers, and even better people! 10/10 would recommend them to all family and friends for their weddings/special events!Sent on 03/19/2020
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.
