For that special moment, timing is everything. When I look through the lens this notion is at the forefront. Your special day will be filled with moments and my number one goal is to capture them as they happen so that you can relive them every time you see the images. Every wedding has its own character and through perperation and planning this character will be captured and remembered forever. I have worked tirelessly over the years to refine our system and I will make sure that no detail is overlooked. In addition to our professional wedding photography we also offer videography and photo booth rentals. This gives us flexibilty to create a package that will fit the needs of any wedding. I strive to be a good communicator because I know how difficult it can be to plan a wedding from hundreds of miles away. Please take a second to check out our websites and let me know if you have any questions or would like a quote for our services. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully capturing your wedding day memories!

My fiancé and I are from Cleveland and booked Ryan after searching online for some Outer Banks engagement pictures on the beach. We could not have been happier with our choice! The Outer Banks is a special place to us so we HAD to have some pictures done while we were there for our family vacation. If I could give a higher rating than 5/5 on here I would! Ryan took the time to answer all of our questions (and I had many) quickly and thoroughly. He was also very reasonably priced.
The day of our pictures he took his time to make sure we got all the shots we wanted! He made us laugh and feel comfortable in front of the camera! We got our pictures back quickly and they are perfect!
I can not say enough wonderful things about Coastal Shots!

I can not talk highly enough about Ryan and Coastal Shots. He was always very prompt to respond to emails and very professional. He photographed my wedding and took absolutely amazing pictures. I came up with a pinterest board for some unique ideas and Ryan nailed them! He is very organized, flexible and laid back and made us feel comfortable through the "posing" for the pictures. I would 100% recommend him to anyone who is looking for a photographer with true talent and skill! Thanks Ryan!

Ryan and Haley were such a fun and creative couple to work with, we couldn't have asked for a better team of photographers for our wedding day! They were both so sweet, professional and personable and the quality of their work is definitely worth every cent (and then some)!

Ryan at Coastal Shots was professional, focused, and personable. He photographed my wedding, on the beach and his shots were so beautiful. I was amazed at all the unique wonderful shots he achieved. I definately reccomend Ryan at Coastal Shots. I will be hiring him again for family photos on our 5 year anniversary back to the beach.

I would recommend them to absolutely anyone. Their professionalism and creative ideas were incredible. Poor Hayley was hit in the middle of the forehead with a shell (we're talking huge shell explosion on the face), and didn't break a smile all night - continuing to shoot our photos.

My husband and I have never taken professional photos and they made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera!

Ryan and Heather were wonderful to work with! Shortly after booking them for the wedding, we had an engagement shoot with them. It was just after sunrise on the beach. I'm not a morning person, but their energy and enthusiasm helped wake me up, and the pictures came out beautifully. I'm definitely not a person who likes getting photos taken, but they made it a fun experience. I spent a lot of time laughing and smiling - which definitely showed in the pictures. On the day of the wedding, they both arrived on time and were a joy to work with. I had great plans for all the pictures I wanted taken, but, of course, on the day of the wedding my head was elsewhere. Fortunately, they knew the best shots to take and I gave them the reins to direct us. In many weddings I've attended, it feels like the bride and groom miss most of the wedding taking photos, but it wasn't like that for us. We were able to get our shots in the time alotted, and Ryan was very diligent about keeping to my timeline. That being said, we also captured nearly all the shots I wanted, and our photos are perfect. My biggest problem now - there's too many great pictures to choose from! We have great shots of family, bridal party, friends, and us both in traditional and "fun" shots, posed and unposed. They also did a great job capturing candid shots that show the emotion of the day. I couldn't be happier!

We also got a photobooth for the reception site. It was such a hit, and so much fun to look through our photobook the day after the wedding. People had such fun taking pictures and it was a great souvenir. Plus, everything was set up and I had to do nothing to organize or manage it, which was excellent!

Words cannot even begin to express how pleased I was with Ryan and Haylee! They are the most adorable team and recently married congratulations!! From the moment I met Ryan at the Bridal Show I instantly loved his work and charisma. During my bridal portraits I was told to plan on about 2 hours but we ended up staying much longer than that. They both have a different eye and can capture such creatively beautiful images. I honestly don't think there was one picture from my portraits I didn't like. The day of we had them for a full day which is hard to find. Having two was great as well because Haylee came to the bridal suite to take pictures of the girls getting ready and Ryan went to the boys house to get them getting ready. This was a huge time saver! We decided to rent a photo booth which was a huge hit!! The pictures from the day of could not have been better. Both Ryan and Haylee were very professional yet able to enjoy themselves and have fun at our wedding as well. My parents, husband and all of my bridal party were extremely impressed! If there are any brides that are getting married at the outer banks and Coastal Shots is available I would snatch them up quickly they are the ultimate photography team!

We booked Ryan as our photographer after finding him online. We loved his work and his presence online was awesome. After reaching out to him about working our wedding we were hooked. He was so responsive and helpful...which is great given the stress of planning a huge lifetime event. As for the day of the wedding, Ryan and his wife, Hayley, were second to none. My guests went out of their way to say to me and my husband how much they loved our photographers. and the pictures? amazing. You will be very happy you went with coastal shots... We sure are!! oh and ps: Hayley cleaned my dress with cleaning wipes after it got dirty for our first look on the beach...she also fixed my hair after the wind swept a curl out of the up-do...these people are more than just great photographers, they are the real deal.. =)

Ryan at Coastal Shots Photography captured our interest the moment we met him and his lovely wife at the Wedding Expo in OBX. Their offer to take a photo of my engagement ring and give it to us as a memento was brilliant - and beautiful! I knew right then and there that I wanted him to take my wedding photos. The photos Ryan took of our wedding day were amazing. When you're in the moment, you forget all the little things that make the day so special. I cried as I browsed the gallery Ryan sent to us after the wedding. He captured every special moment - from the tear Rob wiped from my eye early on in the ceremony, to the laughter we shared as my father-in-law photo-bombed a fun family shot, to the hug and tears I share with my college roommate after all of these years of friendship and love. Ryan's talents allowed him to capture our story - the story of our love and our simple love of life and laughter and the Outer Banks - perfectly. There aren't enough words to convey our thanks and appreciation to Ryan for capturing these candid moments!!!

I am so glad we chose Ryan and Coastal Shots for our recent wedding!! The pictures were amazing and Ryan was so easy to work with. He definitely has an eye for details and had some great ideas for shots. I did not want the "traditional" wedding photos and left the rest up to Ryan. I was not disappointed AT ALL when I received my photos!!! I could go on and on about Ryan's work and how pleasant he was to work with. I'm looking forward to using him in the future when we want more pictures taken in OBX!!!!

Coastal Shots Photography is a perfect 10 in my book! There are many options when having an OBX wedding but I'm so glad I went with Coastal Shots. Photography was one of my must haves for my wedding. And if that is your priority too then search no more.
Ryan was so responsive and professional during our initial contact. Prior to the wedding I was able to send him a list of shots that I wanted captured and prior to the wedding he reviewed them with me again to confirm. The turn around time was amazing. I received the online gallery with 3 weeks of my ceremony. My friends and family loved being able to view the photos online. It's going to be hard to pick photos fom my frames and wedding album!

Ryan was an absolute pleasure to work with and we could not be any happier with Coastal Shots. Our wedding pictures turned out BEAUTIFUL! He was so professional yet so friendly and easy going throughout the entire process. We have received so many compliments on our pictures and I would use Ryan again in the future in a heartbeat. We also rented the photobooth which was a huge hit at the reception! The value and level of quality was wonderful!

Is there a rating better than 5 out of 5??? Ryan and Hayley, I cannot even begin to express how grateful I am to have found you guys to do the photography for our special day.

Photo Booth:
The big hit of our reception. Everybody LOVED the photo booth, and we have looked through our photo booth album a gazillion times, laughing at all of the funny pictures we got! It was extremely easy to use, and printed out a photo strip for people to keep and for us to have in an album. All of our guests had a blast with it! Also, we got it at a discount since we used Coastal Shots for our photography which was a big plus :)

Photography:
All I can say is wow. From the minute I first contacted Ryan, I knew that he was the photographer for us. Always quick to respond to emails, affordable, and extremely attentive to what I was looking for. Like most OBX brides, I was planning from several hours away, so good communication was key for me, and that's exactly what I got! When it came to the day of, both Ryan and Hayley were fun to work with. I (surprisingly) was very relaxed the day of my wedding, but I can imagine that if I was stressed out, they would have calmed me down. They were both just so laid back and had such a positive demeanor, I couldn't help but feel comfortable with them. We had such a blast with them getting ready, during the portraits, and at the reception. They had great ideas, and made sure to get the pictures I wanted while injecting their expertise and knowledge of the venue. I already have seen many of the pictures and they are AMAZING. I could not be happier about how they turned out. They captured many great moments of our reception and the portraits look incredible. They are both so talented. I honestly cannot say enough good things about Ryan and the Coastal Shots team. If you want to have a photographer who is affordable, accomodating, knowledgable, and incredibly nice and fun, do yourself a favor and contact Coastal Shots!!!!

Ryan and his team were absolutely amazing. We couldn't have asked for a better Photographer. I always dreamed that this day would come and be Unforgettable. His team made my wildest dreams come true. There are no words to explain how great these pictures turned out. They could be on the front cover of a magazine!! I have had so many people tell us how beautiful our pictures are. We are extremely pleased with the quality of the pictures, and you can check them out on his website. Ryan and his team were so easy to get along with and would recommend using them to capture your special day!!!

P.S. The photo booth was a total hit at our wedding. We enjoyed looking at all the funny photos our guests left for us the day after the wedding!!!

Pictures were one of the most important things for me while planning our wedding and I wanted to make sure to get plenty of pictures at good quality. Coastal Shots Photography exceeded my expectations. The quality of our photos are amazing and the amount of photos we received were way more than I anticipated. They made sure to capture every moment. They give you an online view of selected pictures and also mail you cds with all the pictures from your day. They were very flexible and professional. I definitely recommend the photo booth, it was the best part of our reception. Everyone had a blast with it! You will also get a cd of the photo booth pictures, something that was a nice surprise to receive. :)

Ryan Diegelmann is the BEST photographer!!! He was very prompt on arrival and had so many creative ideas the entire time. He is very pleasant to work with and just an all-around nice guy, and very easygoing. It was such a pleasure to work with him and the photos turned out amazing! It's going to be tough deciding which ones to frame and hang on the wall because there are just hundreds of beautiful photos to choose from! I would definitely recommend Coastal Shots to any future bride. My husband and I have nothing but nice things to say about Coastal Shots Photography and Ryan. We look forward to many more family vacations down to OBX and will definitely be hiring Ryan in the future for family photos/anniversary photos. We highly recommend this photographer.

For my Wedding in the Outer Banks of NC, we used Coastal Shots for our photography and Photo Booth Rental.

From the very first inquiry, Ryan, from Coastal Shots was very timely, friendly and informative in his responses. It helped make planning our wedding from a distance so much easier!

On the day of the wedding, our photographer was Heather and she was fabulous! She fit in perfectly with group, and did her job without being intrusive. It was a joy to have her around!

And finally, the photo booth was a HUGE hit!! Everyone, from old to young, loved it! And the strips were hilarious! My Husband and I have looked at the albumn no less than 10 times since the wedding.

We received our initial link to our wedding pics about 10 days after our wedding-very quick! Just when I thought I was coming down from all of my wedding day bliss, Ryan emails me the link to our pictures and I was on cloud 9 again!
The pictures were fabulous and I didnt realize all of the intimate moments that Heather was able to catch.


Coastal Shots was by a great, great value for the dollar amount spent. I would use them again in a heartbeat.

Our wedding was at the Currituck Club in Corolla NC. Ryan & Hailey were so awesome. Not only were they great people they made the photography element of our wedding stress free. They kept the group on track and got through all of the pictures that we wanted and then some. You can tell they have experience because when we got our pictures back we both kept smiling and smiling and saying "thats such a good one!"

Ryan was very responsive to my emails which I know all brides would and will appreciate. We highly recommend Costal Shots to anyone who wants great people to capture amazing pictures of your special day.

I was so relieved to have a vendor that was as easy going as Ryan. He really made being a bride seem easy for the camera and I felt at ease that I could trust in him to capture all of our special moments. We have already received our edited pictures only 2 weeks after the big day - which is much faster than I expected being that we got married during the busiest wedding month! Kudos to Ryan and his assistant for being as flexible as they were and for accommodating to our ever-changing plans, as well as helping a military couple. I can easily say that Coastal Shots was one of our best if not the best vendor we dealt with during our wedding planning.

If you're a bride early in your wedding planning and you've come across Coastal Shots as a potential for photography then I'm telling you to end your search and call Ryan RIGHT NOW. From our first email Ryan was an absolute dream to work with. No hidden fees popped up along the way, and we got absolutely beautiful, high quality photos on the budget of a law student, which I didn't even think was possible. When Ryan arrived on the day of the wedding we felt like we had been friends with him for years! We have pictures that show off our personalities, as well as those of our friends and family. We are still hearing from people that attended the wedding and those who have seen our pictures about how awesome our photographer was! Hayley and Scott were awesome too! We couldn't be happier with how our video turned out, Scott seemed to blend the whole day together perfectly! The icing on the cake was the photobooth that was also got from Ryan. Everyone from 2 years old to 90 had a blast and it was so easy to use! We got awesome photos from our guests for our guestbook and they loved that they could take some home! We are beyond happy that Ryan and the Coastal Shots team were there for our big day!

I can not emphasize how incredibly grateful you will be if you choose Coastal Shots for your wedding photography needs! Ryan and his crew were absolutely amazing! They were everything that we hoped they would be and so much more!

From our first moment of contact he was professional, timely, responsive, mellow, and just a suberbly nice person - and also is one of the most reasonably priced photographers in the OBX. All of these characteristics were vital to us. We also wanted a photographer who "got us" and understood how to match our desires with his skills and he went above and beyond our expectations!

The day of the wedding Ryan and his crew showed up early and got to work - in a behind-the-scenes capturing all the special magic kind of way! Ryan had a lovely, gentle demeanor and worked with our family and friends so well - wasn't pushy or demanding - this was very important to us.

That day passed by so fast that my husband and I had a difficult time remembering everything that happened....luckily, we hired Ryan to remind us of all the beauty that abounded that day! His photos were SPECTACULAR! Each shot captures all the intimacy, excitement, and brimming-with-emotion feelings that we experienced that day.

When we shared our photos with family and friends that were at the wedding as well as those that weren't, the overwhelming response was "These are the best photos that I've ever seen!" and "Wow! Your photographer was amazing!"

We can't say enough good things about Ryan and his team. I would hire them a million times over if I could...and you should too:)

Ryan and his team were fantastic to work with. They answered all of my MANY questions quickly by phone or email, and had lots of questions for us, too. The day of the wedding, I can honestly say the photographers and videographer managed to be EVERYWHERE without people ever noticing - it was definitely a feat! They got so many amazing photos and the video is just perfect. It actually made me cry because I was able to see things from our wedding day that were happening elsewhere while I was busy. I cannot seem to get tired of looking at our beautiful photos! We also used Coastal Shots for our photobooth which was a HUGE success and just so much fun. Some of the pictures we got from that have turned out to be my favorites. They are truly a pleasure to work with and I'd recommend them to anyone looking for quality photos and video for their special day!

This was a great asset to our wedding at Jennette's Pier. The size of the booth was perfect and fit right in the corner not to take too much away from the reception. Our guests loved it and my father in law had a great time with it taking pics with family and friends. We used this as our favors as well. The pics came out great and the label at the bottom was so cute! Ryan always is quick to respond to my emails and answer any questions that I had.

They both have great personalities and were a lot of fun to work with. I'm still looking at our wedding pictures and it's been almost a month. I can't get enough! :-) Ryan was wonderful to work with throughout the entire process, start to finish. Communication with him was always prompt and he responded quickly.
And the price.....you can't beat! Look no further. I promise....You will not be disappointed. Thank you again to Ryan and Coastal Shots Photography.

I can't say enough good things about Ryan @ Coastal Shots!!!

I'll breakdown my review into the following categories:

Communication: Ryan was very responsive in emails and was very friendly leading up to the wedding, and since I was planning a wedding in North Carolina all the way from Texas, this was imperative... It also put me at ease that every time I told my other vendors that I was using Coastal Shots for photography, they all said, "OH GOOD!!! HE'S THE BEST!"

Pricing: His prices were so much more affordable than other OBX photographers, and he doesn't charge in 4 hour increments like they do (huge plus!).

Experience:
On the day of our wedding Ryan was on time, very energetic, super friendly, and very easy to be around. We felt like we were friends with him. He made my husband, who is never comfortable taking pictures, have a blast taking pictures! He told me from the start that he would come when everyone was getting ready and stay until the party ended, and that's exactly what he did. He let us give him some ideas, and he had fun with it. So many of our guests said they saw him going through our pictures on his camera throughout the night smiling and genuinely looking like he was having fun, and that meant a lot to us.

We also did the photobooth which was a BLAST and a major hit!!! Everyone was talking about how much fun they had with it. It's super easy to use and creates amazing pictures. It's a great way to get fun, candid pictures with your guests.

Quality: My wedding pictures came out absolutely AMAZING!!! I am in love with every single one of them. I think I've gone through my 445 picture album atleast 12 times... and all of our guests have said the same. I want to frame all of them. I couldn't be more pleased with them.

Thank you so much for every Ryan. You helped us capture memories that we will hold on to forever. You truly are a gifted artist!

Quality: My wedding pictures came out absolutely AMAZING!!! I am in love with every single one of them. I think I've gone through my 445 picture album atleast 12 times... and all of our guests have said the same. I want to frame all of them. I couldn't be more pleased with them.

Thank you so much for every Ryan. You helped us capture memories that we will hold on to forever. You truly are a gifted artist! Read less

The photobooth was more than a fantastic addition to our reception - it was the most talked about thing there! Everyone old and young loved it. The picture props were awesome and the booth large enough to accomodate bigger groups. It came with a specially designed photo guest book to house the photo strips and printed duplicates for the guests to take home. It was so fun to look at all the pictures and notes after the party was over. I couldn't put a price on the enjoyment we and our guests had. Ryan and his team are professional and a pleasure to work with. Had backup plans for inclement weather. Worth. Every. Penny. You will NOT be disappointed:)

We used Coastal Shots Photography for our wedding & couldn't be any happier! Ryan & Hayley were easy and fun to work with and went above and beyond (Hayley fixed my hair when it started falling down!). I got the pictures back very quickly & they are AMAZING! When my mom looked at the pictures, she said she laughed and cried because photographers did such a great job of capturing all of the emotions of our wedding. I would absolutely recommend Coastal Shots to anyone looking for an awesome wedding photographer!

Ryan Diegelmann is an amazing artist and photographer who does awesome work at a reasonable price. We were very pleased with the quality of his work and and he really captured the big day from morning through late evening. On the day of the wedding, he and his assistant showed up right on time, and were both very polite, made us feel at ease, and were hard workers. I love looking at the pictures and seeing the different moments that were captured of not only my husband and myself throughout the day but also the bridal party and the congregation. Our wedding day went perfectly and Ryan was there to keep us on track and have fun while capturing the day's emotions. He even made suggestions for poses and photos that we never would have thought of ourselves but they were the perfect shots we never knew we always wanted! We also got his photo booth and everyone LOVED it! Ryan was always quick to respond, which was so important to me while I was planning my wedding, stressed and waiting for a bunch of different vendors to get back to me. Everything was extremely professional. From our first meeting to delivering my photos and album, Ryan was laid back and made us feel completely relaxed and comfortable. The photos are just outstanding and our album is so gorgeous and makes us proud. His pictures were very unique to our wedding, as opposed to your average wedding photos. On the day of the wedding, he fit right in. Everyone felt comfortable around him. He and his assistant captured some great moments at the exact right time. Ryan worked with our budget and was worth the investment. Amazing work, professional, personable, responsive, timely, fun, and easy to get along with, Ryan delivered perfectly. The end result is wedding albums with hundreds of stunning photos of superb quality that we will cherish forever. Ryan started off being just our photographer and ended up becoming a friend that we can't say enough about. You won't regret hiring Ryan, he's the best!

Coastal Shots provided a photo booth for our wedding and it was a HIT. People were lined up to use it and I think it was by far one of the best things we had at the wedding. The shots we got afterwards were awesome and the fact that it printed two copies, one for our guests and one for us, was great! Ryan at Coastal Shots was a pleasure to deal with and we would highly recommend them to anyone interested in having a photo booth at their wedding.

Extremely professional. Ryan met with us more than once to verify pricing and the service offered. We had the photo booth at our rehearsal and everyone loved it! It made the wedding so much fun! Ryan and his co-photographer captured the moments that made our day! Couldn't have been happier with the entire package.

We really enjoyed working with Ryan for our May 2012 wedding! He was very responsive and helpful through email leading up to the wedding. The day of he was great to work with and we hardly even noticed he and his assistant were there. The photobooth was a huge success and we couldn't have asked for anything more out of it. And, most importantly, we LOVE our pictures and received them quickly!

Our relationship with Coastal Shots began with our engagement...Ryan was there to capture the proposal, the answer and the shock! We knew we had to choose Coastal Shots for our wedding photography after seeing the amazing images he captured with our engagement. We could not be happier with the photographs from our wedding and are still trying to choose our favorite ones! The quality of service is exceptional, they were timely with all responses and very informative. Planning our wedding in the Outer Banks from Rhode Island was rough at times, but dealing with Coastal Shots was never difficult being that far away. Whether it was phone, email, or text they always got back to us quickly. The value of the photographs is beyond any and all expectations. The angles the photos were shot at and the point of view they shot from was unbelievable. We could truly not be happier. We also had the photo booth as part of our package and our guests had so much fun taking photo booth shots! We love going through them and cannot believe how many there are from that one night! We cannot wait to work with Coastal Shots again for future family photos! Thanks so much!

Words cannot express how pleased we were with Ryan and the Coastal Shots team. Coastal Shots provided us with a test shooting prior to our wedding, photography and photo booth during our wedding and a very fun Trash the Dress shoot a few days after. They were so easy to work with and very professional. Our pictures turned out better than we could have imagined. We’ve received so many compliments from our family and friends.

Mother Nature brought some serious rain on our wedding day but Coastal Shots helped make sure we didn’t miss a beat and were ready to make a few changes so we could get the most out of our pictures. Your wedding passes with a blink of an eye but we will always have these memories that they captured to remind us of what a blast we had that day…despite the rain
Top Notch Photography! Hands down our favorite vendor to work with!

OBX Photo Booths:

This was a must-have for our wedding planning. The photo booth was an instant hit. All the guests raved about how much fun they had. Everyone took a turn. The pictures were priceless and the photostrips are a unique gift for the guests to take home with them!
