Your Photography search stops here!!
Hi guys! Seriously, let me save you some time with your Photographer search. Ryan and his team are absolutely amazing. Our original wedding day was of course postponed because, well COVID happened...so we pushed it out to 10/15/20. Ryan was very flexible in working with us to make our new date work, which as you can imagine rescheduling an OBX wedding 5 months later can be quite stressful...but he made everything so easy.
As for our wedding day itself, absolutely perfect. Ryan and his team captured every moment that we could've possibly imagined...and then some. His creativity and attention to detail just absolutely blew us away, so far beyond anything we had imagined or hoped for. He somehow even managed to make me not look like the blubbering mess I totally was...and that had to have been a feat in itself. I warned my wife ahead of time that I was going to be a mess...and I wasn't wrong, for that Ryan, thank you! When I logged in to write this review, I saw he even has our first dance photo as his main photo, what an amazing shot...that in itself shows his creativity. The man was standing on about a 5ft fence ledge, and captured what is by far our favorite photo of all, this is the kind of stuff you get with Ryan...original outstanding work.
I promise you that you will not be disappointed if you get the opportunity to hire Ryan to capture your day, I know we will be forever grateful. Ryan gave us the chance to relive our special day, the absolute best day of my life...over and over, so vividly...and there's no price tag on that. Do yourself a favor and grab Coastal Shots if you can. I’ll add a few of our favorites.
Thank you for everything, Ryan!

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

Words can not express how amazing Ryan and Haley were to work with! They were flexible, accomadating, prompt and comforting. They both answered questions and provided support throughout our wedding planning process. They captured so many special moments of our day! Even with a hurricane in our midst, they never skipped a beat. I loved working with them! I would recommend them to everyone and we plan on doing future family sessions with them as well!! If you want photographers who are friendly, professional and supportive... Coastal Shots is the way to go!Sent on 10/28/2015
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.
