For over 11 years Ryan Smith has provided the SC area with beautiful, candid and unique photography. Most brides today are looking for wedding photographers that use a mix of candid photojournalist and traditional style photography. I concentrate less on poses and more on capturing the perfect moments. While I will set up traditional formal portraits, I take hundreds of candid shots of the event as it happens, documenting the emotions of the day. When I do pose the wedding couple I concentrate on relaxed, candid and fun shots using the location well and a mix of natural and studio style strobe lighting.
Being one of the top local photographers in the Myrtle Beach area for over a decade, I’ve shot hundreds of weddings at all the popular locations and I’m one of the most experienced photographers in the area. I’m also very familiar with the special difficulties that come from weddings on the beach. While I’m based in Myrtle Beach, I’ve also shot weddings and provide services at many other locations as well. Areas such as Charleston, SC; Ocean Isle and Sunset Beach, NC; even as far as Raleigh, NC.

Excellent. Professional. Easy to work with. Great quality and price. Personable and friendly. Over exceeded expectations. Outstanding.
We hired Ryan to photograph our very special wedding day this past April 2019. From the very start, Ryan’s friendly and flexible attitude combined with his years of experience was very reassuring. He sat down with us for an initial meeting to answer any questions we had about his style, packages, price, and ideas. As a bride, Ryan’s experience and work ethic made me feel at ease. Thank you for being so easy to work with and capturing all the moments of our special day. We felt so comfortable and our photos came out amazing (and took so many which we love!!) I would hire Ryan again and highly advise him to be your vendor for any occasion, especially weddings. You literally cannot find a better guy for the job !!! Thanks Ryan!!Sent on 05/20/2019

We've only had a Consultation but we hired him right away!
Ryan has been great throughout the entire process. My fiancee and I have only just hired him, as our wedding is next year, but we already feel a great connection with him and just know that our photos will turn out to be amazing! His kind demeanor, experience and positive attitude made us feel very comfortable. We can't wait to see the final shots!Sent on 03/08/2019

Wonderful Experience with Ryan!
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!Sent on 06/12/2019
