Amazing pictures from our special day. I couldn’t be more thankful for the memories. I highly recommend their work!
I love the photos. Bruce was amazing getting natural pics of the kids. Will definitely use these Myrtle Beach photographers again!
Our Myrtle Beach photos were gorgeous and the photographer made everything seem effortless!
We chose to go with Photographers At the Beach as they offered a 1/2 hour family photo shoot session that was a great deal and ended up being thrilled in all aspects with our experience. I booked online a month out and received a confirmation phone call within 15 minutes of completing my booking. The morning of the photos, our photographer called and introduced herself and we confirmed our location and meeting time. The photographer was excellent during the shoot, suggesting backdrops and poses and also had a fantastic, positive attitude. Finally, we received the photo download link the next morning and we couldn’t be happier with the photos. We would recommend this company to anyone and would definitely use them again.
Great experience. Easy to set up, great communication. Pictures were great quality and creative. We are more than please with how everything turned out and would recommend to anyone.
Very friendly, very professional, great pics!
Bruce was fast and efficient in taking pictures of our group of 13. They turned out beautiful!
