The Grand Strand is home to many picturesque backdrops. Below are just a few of the most popular locations.
Myrtle Beach State Park
Myrtle Beach State Park is by far the most popular spot for photos in Myrtle Beach. It is located close to most of the hotels and campgrounds. The park has many spots for photos including the boardwalk, dunes, under the pier, and even wooded areas. Handicap beach access is available. The cost to get in is $8 for adults, $4 for 6-15 years old, and free for children 5 and under.
Huntington Beach State Park
Huntington Beach State Park is located on the south end. The dunes and lighting on the beach are magical. Atalya castle is the perfect timeless backdrop. They also have beautiful wooded areas and marsh walks. The cost to get in is $8 for adults, $4 for 6-15 years old, and free for children 5 and under.
Sometimes the most convenient option is having me come to you! This can be a great option for larger groups or for elderly family members. Keep in mind, since the only options for backdrop at your rental will be the dunes and in front of the water, you will have less variety in your photos. Sessions are not permited within Myrtle Beach City Limits.
Conway Riverwalk is the perfect setting if you are looking for something rustic. Downtown offers "Small-town, USA" vibes. The trees along the river are breath taking in the fall.
The Grand Strand offers 9+ piers! No matter where you are staying, chances are there's one near you. Shooting by a pier offers great lighting! Keep in mind, sessions are not permitted within Myrtle Beach City Limits.
