Myrtle Beach Professional Photographer - Ryan Smith

Story telling with candid, unique, and fun wedding, engagement and family photography

About Ryan Smith Photography of Myrtle Beach

I specialize in relaxed, fun and creative wedding, family and engagement portrait photography for Myrtle Beach and the surrounding coastal areas of SC. As a photographer with a high technical knowledge, I like clean, crisp high quality images that capture moments in a way that can only be done with the best cameras and lenses.

My goal as a photographer is to not only capture a beautiful picture, but to capture genuine emotions using a modern photojournalist / story telling approach and modern camera techniques. As a small business I'm the only photographer you will be dealing with from setting up the appointment to the final image printing or album design, so you can always expect consistent results. I always guarantee satisfaction and make sure that you are happy before a session is complete.

I've had clients tell me that their experience was the most enjoyable and relaxed they have ever had with a photographer in Myrtle Beach, view my Client Testimonials or Facebook page. I use top of the line professional Nikon equipment and I'm a member of the PPA.

February 22, 2014 : Cold and windy day for engagement pictures at the Myrtle Beach State Park

There are always a couple of winter months where no one is looking to have portraits done outdoors or on the beach. During those months I always have some things to do like wedding album layouts and catching up with clients about orders from the previous year, but it’s nice to be getting busy taking [...]
