Whether we're working from a list of must-haves you created or drawing on our experience, we'll make sure we get the perfect shot every time. We can capture the moments we know you'll want so your event is perfectly preserved.
After choosing a shoot location, we will visit it ahead of time to design a shoot plan. Then we'll spend time walking through , and if the site is new to us, we'll take test photographs. Family, groups, and children are our specialty. After spending so much time in the area, naturally we have discovered many beautiful locations for our beach sessions. We can suggest a location for you, if you are unfamiliar with the area, but we'd also be able to meet you wherever is most convenient if traveling with the little ones is an issue for example. I prefer to walk to several different locations during my sessions. I have discovered that some photographers will march your family out on the beach, and park you in a single sand dune for an hour and set up their tripod. I promise not to do that. If you observed me on the beach during a session, you would find me literally running behind the little ones and getting sandy and in the water chasing that perfect shot for your family photo albums.
My name is Ryan Wetherington. I was born on Hilton Head Island in 1987. My love for photography began at a very early age when I discovered my grandfathers old Nikon N2020 film camera and a collection of lenses and filters. By the time I was in middle school I was developing black and white prints in the darkroom in my photography class and knew what my real passion was. I was right and it has ended up being a passion that I still have today!
Being born on Hilton Head and raised in the area has allowed me to become extremely familiar with the area. I became interested in photography around 12 years old. When I was 15 I had my first picture printed in the local newspaper and also photographed my first wedding that year. From that point on it has been a passion of mine. I moved to the mountains of North Carolina for a few years, but I am now happy to be back. I have had over 150 satisfied clients since the start of 2017
I am comfortable with many locations and photography styles. The photograph style may differ from assignment to assignment, but my commitment to quality and craft during your beach photography session is unwavering. Please see my portfolio for examples of family beach photography over the last summer.Sunset beach photography is quite rewarding because it is different every evening. A professional photography service is not going to park your family in one sand dune for an hour.
