We LOVED Ryan!! My husband and I are both very particular about pictures and Ryan seemed to be on the same page with us the whole time about what shots we wanted at our wedding. He was extremely flexible and seemed to always be near when there was a "Kodak Moment". We strongly recommend him! Thank you so much Ryan :)

Ryan is AMAZING!!! We just had him for our ceremony and reception and he was such a great photographer. We haven't received our photos yet, but saw some on the blog and they are amazing! We just got married a week ago and he has already gotten to our photos. He was great at being flexible with our bridal party yet had a good eye for a shot.

His pricing was amazing, and he was so good at letting me know his expectations. Our guests were so pleased that he kept the pictures candid and was able to get ones they wanted too. He was not invasive and such a great talent! We cannot say enough about him. We will be going back to him for more and we live in VA!!!

Ryan was our photographer for our engagement pictures and wedding photos. It was good to do engagement pictures with him because it gave us a good idea of some wedding poses as well. His pictures are phenomenal. My whole family has mentioned to me how beautiful they were. I did have a list of photos to take around with us the day of the wedding, which I suggest to anyone with any photographer. So happy with my wedding photos!

Ryan is amazing! I have my own love of photography and have a wide assortment of professional equipment. Ryan took amazing photos. He had great ideas and did what ever I asked him to. He was on time had two camera's and wasn't fumbling around. He was dressed appropriately and was very professional. I wanted a group photo of the 50+ people that were at our wedding. He not only captured it perfectly everyone is looking at the camera and smiling. We had several small children at the event. Ryan had us laughing and I never thought about smiling, I didn't have to. He took typical photos and many I hadn't thought of. He captured a great moment of us all goofing around.

I was worried about how the pictures would come out. As a photographer I am very critical of others work. I hate pictures that look forced or poorly posed. Ryan took amazing shots. I have pictures of everyone that was there. He captured intimate moments that others might have over looked. He asked me multiple times if there were photos that I wanted or if I wanted pictures with certain people. He had plenty of creative ideas as well. At times he was invisible, as a great photographer should be, but captured everything. There is not one photo I wish we had. He managed to get the perfect view of us saying our vows, he captured my face and my husbands face separately as well as together. He has the moment we placed the rings on each others fingers. Absolutely nothing was missed.

He is amazing. I highly recommend him. When we are back in the Myrtle Beach area I am going to have Ryan to a family session at the state park. I haven't paid someone to take photos of my family in years, I've been doing them myself. I have finally found a photographer worthy of the job!

I had a very bad experience using Ryan Smith as my wedding photographer.

The pros: There are some beautiful bridal portraits and photographs of my husband and I together.

The cons:
We do not have a single photograph of our entire bridal party, we do not have a single photograph of us with our families (not even with our immediate families let alone with our extended families). Some of my relatives who flew in from Canada to come to our wedding are not in any of the pictures. I don't have a picture of my dress. I don't even have a picture in my dress that is close up enough to see its details. We have maybe 3 photographs of the decor, but beyond that no photographs of the majority of the venue or decorations.

**If you use Ryan Smith, be sure to make a specific list and tell him EXACTLY which photographs are important for you to have AND when exactly during the evening you would like them taken. I made the false assumption that he is the photographer and should know what he is doing so I left it up to him to capture our big day. Very bad idea! I was so disappointed about everything that was missed.

When I asked Ryan about the photographs that were missed afterwards (unfortunately in all the chaos of the wedding I didn't realize we were missing all of those important pictures) he became extremely defensive and told me it was all my fault.

He also wrote a blog after my wedding saying that I was an uncooperative bride for not climbing the twisting tiny stairs of the light house in my high heels and wedding gown (this was before I had even walked down the aisle and did not want to rip my gown or fall) for one photo that he wanted to take. Very unprofessional.
