Hilton Head Photographer Reviews

“We have used Maureen for our beach pictures our last three trips to Hilton Head. Each time I am amazed at how amazing they are ! She does a great job and the lighting is always just perfect. It is obvious she knows exactly what she is doing and she’s also super fun to work with. I highly recommend her!”
Celeste P.

“Maureen was absolutely wonderful! My family worked with her a week ago on the Island, and it was an incredible experience from start to finish. Maureen was always very responsive via email leading up to our photo shoot, and arrived early the day of too! Our youngest just turned two, and due to the pandemic he can be quite shy at times and we haven’t been able to get any updated family photos so I figured why not take some on the beach in our favorite place. Maureen was extremely patient, and mindful of our little guy, knowing when to go in for a picture or to give him a break. This alone, was not only wonderful as a parent, but It really showed in the photos. I was blown away by the photos she was able to capture as a result of her diligence, and without her care and patience we wouldn’t have such beautiful photos. We had a group of 5 adults and 2 children, and within the time frame we got lots of variations of poses, sceneries and group shots with grandparents, parents etc. i couldn’t wait to share our online album with everyone because the pictures are breath taking, and Maureen is incredibly talented and kind! We look forward to working with her again in the near future!”

“We had the pleasure of meeting Maureen this past July, 2021 for family pictures. We were scheduled to go to Hilton Head in July 2020, but COVID, so we moved our reservation to 2021. Maureen was so gracious and kind and allowed us to roll our July 2020 deposit to July 2021. Leading up to our pictures, Maureen was incredibly quick to respond to emails and was so great to work with as we finalize the details of our photo shoot. Beside me, no one in the family was looking forward to the pictures, but as soon as Maureen got to our house, everyone’s attitude changed. Maureen put everyone at ease, she was kind, funny, and knew what she was doing. By the time we got to the beach, everyone was laughing and felt completely comfortable with Maureen. At the beach, she made sure everyone was in the right place, smoothing fly-aways down and making sure everyone looked as natural as possible. After five minutes with us, she felt like family. She was calling people by names, joking with the kids and just having fun with us as she captured our sweet beach vacation memories! I cannot speak highly enough about Maureen. She was so helpful in placing our family of 8 in pictures and making sure the angles, lighting and background were just right. She really took time to ask us what photos we wanted. We spent an hour with her and the time flew by because everyone was relaxed and enjoyed spending the evening with our new friend, Maureen. Even my parents (who hate getting their pictures taken) loved the experience with Maureen so much that they asked her if THEY could be in a picture with her! We love Maureen and had such a wonderful time with her. We took our pictures on Monday evening and Maureen came back to our house on Friday morning to show us all of the beautiful pictures she took. In our package, we got a USB with all of our photos and were able to select a canvas print that was shipped to us. we got over 60 images from our session! Again, Maureen is simply the best. We will be back in 2022 and we will get pictures with Maureen again. She is an amazing photographer who loves what she does and it shows. We will treasure the pictures she captured of our family forever. I would recommend Maureen to any and everyone because she is amazing to work with and produces the best pictures our family has taken on vacation! We look forward to seeing Maureen next summer!”

“We booked Maureen for family photos during our July 2021 Hilton Head vacation! From day one she was responsive, she shared some clothing tips, and she had all our information ready months prior to the trip. During the photo session she tracked weather and helped us avoid rain, she was patient with my one year old twins, and she made the process a fun memory we will always have. Our photos turned out great and we can’t wait to send our Christmas cards this year thanks to the help of Maureen.”
Heather W.

“Maureen is wonderful. We had two family groups with a total of 9 people (5 kids) and she did a fantastic job! She did really well working with the kids and all the pictures turned out amazing. Communication was a breeze and she was very responsive. I highly recommend Maureen!”
Kimberly S.

“We had our family pictures and our daughter’s senior pictures taken during our most recent trip to HHI. Our photographer, Ashleigh did an amazing job. She had a so many unique and fun poses for my daughter’s senior pictures. I would highly recommend Ashleigh and we were very pleased with all of our pictures.”
Nicole K.

“Maureen and her daughter photographed four generations of our family during our vacation.  She managed us with just the right amount of command and humor to make it fast and efficient for our hungry family (of course we needed the golden hour on the beach).  The photos are beautiful and the whole experience was great.  By the way, she handles children really well.  I highly recommend it for your next visit to Hilton Head.”
Jeanne M.

“Maureen was very easy to work with and produced beautiful pictures (despite a cranky 10th month old). She was detailed oriented and dedicated to capturing the joy of our little family. 🙂 We will definitely have Maureen take our pictures during vacations in the future!”
McKenzie K.

“If you want amazing beach photos, contact Maureen Snyder Photography. She took photos on Friday evening of me, my 3 teen daughters, and our dog. Maureen was wonderful to work with. She knew exactly which locations would produce beautiful memories and just how to capture each personality. I just saw the final images and was overwhelmed at how far she exceeded my expectations! Not only is she professional, but she is thorough and kind. Thank you Maureen for my precious memories!!”
Jacki S.

“We hired Maureen for a family beach shoot based on many positive reviews. We were more than pleased with the results. This was the fifth time we have hired a family photographer in different locations, and Maureen was one of the best. She met us at our vacation rental in Palmetto Dunes as we were one block off the beach. Maureen’s attention to detail was superb. She was excellent at posing our entire group of 11, then smaller groups of 2, 3, 4, and 7. She made sure hair was in place, that there weren’t gaps in the pose or heads partially hiding other heads, the background wasn’t distracting, and the colors were balanced. And in spite of this attention to detail, she still made us relax and look natural! As an amateur photographer myself, these details are important to me. We had an evening shoot and ended up with a cloudy day, but that didn’t take away from the results. I think Maureen can work with a variety of lighting except maybe pouring rain. (She told me she would reschedule if that happened.) She is also very good with editing in terms of switching out closed eyes or removing imperfections. Of the photographers we’ve worked with, we’ve never had such fast results. She met us at our rental a day and a half later to review a slide show of the results, have us pick out the 11×14 print included in the package, and to give us the thumb drive with all the edited and corrected photos. The print arrived at our home about a week later. I highly recommend Maureen for your family beach shoot!”
Diane K.

Maureen was wonderful! My kids were NOT on their best behavior and, despite this, Maureen still found a way to get beautiful pictures of our big family. We’re really grateful for her patience and skill!
Jennifer B.

Maureen was wonderful to work with when we had our family photos taken. There was a lot of wind on our day to take pictures and I was a little nervous with how they’d look. I was amazed at the photographs she took even with 5 children. I highly recommend her!!”
Beth B.

“We had an absolutely awesome 5-star experience working with professional photographer Maureen Snyder while taking family photographs on the beach at Hilton Head Island, SC. Maureen has lived in the Lowcountry of South Carolina for more than 20 years and specializes in family portrait photography on the beaches and sand dunes of this popular vacation spot. She has a relaxed and welcoming personality that is the perfect fit for a professional photographer. Our entire family enjoyed working with this gregarious professional. Armed with a Digital Single Lens Reflex camera, Maureen is a pro at harnessing the most attractive natural lighting just after sunrise and just before sunset to produce beautiful family portraits near the ocean’s surf. Our session was shot on a Tuesday evening in the golden hour just before sunset. We were thrilled with our photos, conveniently provided to us on a USB flash drive, at a very reasonable and competitive price. We’re excited to now have the perfect family shot for our next Christmas card. I’d recommend that you book your session with Maureen Snyder as far in advance as possible as her time slots can fill quickly as vacationing continues to accelerate on the Island. Five big stars for a true professional and a very enjoyable experience. Say “Cheese”…Highly recommended.”
Allan M.

“Maureen makes the booking process and session so seamless and easy. It’s our second time using her to photograph our family and she didn’t disappoint. I left the session certain that there wouldn’t be many good photos given the wind and fact that our toddler doesn’t know how to smile yet. However, somehow the photos turned out great! Maureen was able to capture countless great options of our family, even capturing our daughter smiling.”
Robyn S.

“Maureen is AWESOME. While vacationing on the island I contacted her to do a family photo which involved my 4 year old granddaughter and 22 month grandson along with 5 adults. My grandson was your typical 22 month old and kept running away. My granddaughter was busy throwing sand. I thought the whole thing was going to be a major disaster! Somehow Maureen managed to capture several beautiful family photos and absolutely wonderful pictures of the grandchildren. She was so professional, kind and caring. You can tell Maureen loves her work. I am so grateful for the beautiful family photos! I highly recommend Maureen Snyder Photography.”
Cindy S.

“We had our family photos with Maureen taken last summer when visiting the island and they were fantastic! Maureen is so easy to work with and the session went by fast. We just came back with my extended family and now have those absolutely beautiful beach photos as well with everyone together. Maureen, thanks so much!!!”
Katie K.

“We had family pictures taken over Thanksgiving and we are thrilled with them! Maureen is very easy-going and a pleasure to work with. Our scheduled day turned out to be very windy and challenging for taking pictures so Maureen kindly offered to come back a couple of days later. Her turnaround time was quick and the quality is excellent! We will definitely use Maureen again!!”
Cyndi K.

“I can NOT say enough about Maureen Snyder Photography! Maureen is a miracle worker!! My family and I are over the moon with the results of our photo session with her! She and her sweet daughter, Sara were amazing from start to finish! Maureen was so wonderful to work with…professional, artistic, kind and so great with both pre and post session follow-up! I would use her again in a heartbeat! Thank you, Maureen!!!”
Nancy S.

“We had a great experience working with Maureen in Hilton Head for our family photos. The pre-trip communication was timely and thorough, and she was flexible when we arrived and wanted to shift from the traditional beach scene. She recommended a beautiful local park that was much more our speed. Her attention to the little details (flyaway hair, hand placement, rumpled shirts, etc) ensured the photos turned out great. We also have many diverse skin tones in our family, and her editing skills ensured we all looked our best. Would absolutely recommend!”
Tony W.

Maureen is the best photographer on HHI! We use her every time we come to Hilton Head. She offers the best beach package, giving you a USB with all the photos for you to print whatever pictures you like! Maureen does a fantastic job capturing all those special moments! All her photos are amazing! You won’t be disappointed!”
Beth B.

“Maureen and her daughter did a wonderful job with our photos on the Beach at Hilton Head! She was very good at working with my 8 month old granddaughter and gave us beautiful photos despite a windy day. Maureen was patient and efficient during our session and very respectful of Covid protocol during our session and the delivery of photos. The final pictures are beautiful and a great memory of summer 2020!”
Linda L.

“Our family has used Maureen 3 times over the last 5 years while on vacation in Hilton Head. Her work is absolutely beautiful! She is responsible, easy to work with, and such a nice person. This year, we had our 11 month old in our photos. She wasn’t the most cooperative, but somehow Maureen managed to capture so many beautiful photos. Her daughter came along to help make our daughter smile, and she was great with her! We’ll keep using Maureen again and again for our family vacation photos.”
Katie N.

“Maureen did a wonderful job with our family beach photos and our son’s senior pictures in Hilton Head this past week. She was very responsive to my initial inquiry and all following texts/emails. She arrived promptly for our photo session and worked very well with our family. We are thrilled with our photos, which she edited and reviewed with us within three days. I would highly recommend Maureen Snyder for anyone interested in Hilton Head beach and senior photos!”
Britt R.

“Just wanna give Maureen a shout out for capturing such great beach photos of our family. She does so well to work in the elements of beach photography. We were in HHI for a week of not so stellar weather and yet Maureen was able to take such great photos. We are very pleased with her work and would highly recommend her to others. She is very prompt to respond, has very competitive pricing and **Bonus** she provides you with an actual print at the end of the session. Thanks Maureen!”
Shanon C.

“Maureen was awesome! We took pics on the beach with my family including a 2.5yo and 4 month old. The pics turned out so amazing. She was easy to work with and easy to communicate with before and after our session. I also loved that she had everything including prices up front so you knew what you were paying before committing. I cannot stress how impressed I was with the package deal, the pictures as an end product, ease of communication and her professionalism. Our family goes to HHI every year and I know exactly who I will be using without hesitation.”
Heather W.

“Booking a beach session with Maureen was simple from start to finish. She’s easy to get a hold of through email and responsive to phone messages. For our session, she met us on the beach and captured our family perfectly. Every photo was fantastic! The USB she provides is in 2 formats for future printing. Maureen was very helpful in making suggestions during the session. In the end, we sat down at our home and went through all the pictures and chose our 11×14 (which she offers in two finishes) I highly recommend Maureen for her services. You will not be disappointed.”
Kristin R.

“Maureen was fantastic to work with! She even contacted us to make other arrangements for our session because the weather forecast was calling for rain. She is committed to making time to get your pictures in while on vacation. I don’t know how she does it! We also couldn’t be happier with our pictures. Thank you Maureen!”
Carey B.

“I scheduled my youngest daughters senior pictures to be taken in Hilton Head while we were on vacation. The pictures are absolutely amazing with a variety of creative poses. She really captured my daughters spirit and her beautiful smile. Maureen was easy to work with and was great with my daughter. I highly recommend her!”
Joanne D.

“Maureen took our family pics on the beach in June 2020. We have 4 littles, and family pics are always stressful. Maureen did a wonderful job keeping our boys engaged and understanding what she was working with. We ended the session with the boys jumping in the waves! Highly recommend her!”
Brooke P.

“You won’t be disappointed if Maureen takes your family pictures. She is very professional, a good communicator. But best of all, she’s really great with kids. Our kids were ages 5, 7 & 9 at the time we had our pictures taken, and she was great with all of them – got some really great smiles! I would absolutely use her again for our family pictures.”
Jane T.

“Maureen is absolutely the best! We have used her for family beach pictures for 4 years now. She has been fantastic with our sometimes challenging children and knows how to get us all looking our best! She is so professional and patient, we will keep using her every year!”
Carrie S.

I can’t say enough about Maureen and her beautiful work! She was AMAZING! We had 9 people on a family vacation. We couldn’t take photos on the beach due to an injury. She suggested a great backup location. I have a 1.5 year old that wasn’t too keen on sitting still for pictures. She was incredibly patient and managed to catch the few times she was smiling. The photos all turned out FANTASTIC! Would highly recommend!! We will be getting our family photos taken again the next time we visit.
Jenn H.

We just returned from Hilton Head, and had Maureen Snyder take our pictures.  When we looked at various photographer websites, we liked the feel of Maureen’s images, and her costs were extremely competitive. Maureen was wonderful-she was dealing with 6 adults and 2 small kids (one who wanted no part of taking pictures!), and managed to get-and capture!-us all happy, relaxed and smiling. Maureen was patient, and took her time getting us into the right configurations and poses. As a result, we look comfortable yet polished. We love the final product-especially because you get the digital images!-and would recommend Maureen to anyone looking for a special way to capture their HHI vacation!
Jen F.

“Love * Love * Love every picture! We can’t say enough great things about Maureen Snyder Photography. I chose Maureen from Facebook for her five star rating and WOW! I would give her more stars if I could! We are SO happy with our pictures. It was a wonderful experience. Maureen was able to capture the love and joy we have for our family and the beautiful beaches at Hilton Head. Her daughter Ashley is amazing with making the entire session fun and coaxing smiles from a shy, reluctant 2 year-old granddaughter to her 70 year-old Papa. I definitely recommend Maureen Snyder for capturing all your vacation memories.”
Louise B.

“It is hard to put into words how absolutely wonderful our experience with Maureen Snyder Photography was. Maureen was always professional, available, and willing to help in any way she could. She was in constant communication and provided all necessary information prior to our arrival in Hilton Head. Upon our arrival in HHI and our meeting with Maureen, we were instantly struck with her professionalism and warmth. She immediately made us all feel at ease, and connected with our two young children, allowing her to get more natural pictures of our family.  Outside of her excellent skills as a photographer, she also provided us with some great information about the island and where we could take our kids to find some awesome shells and natural wildlife. Lastly, we were incredibly impressed with her promptness in providing us with a peak at our pictures, as well as providing us with the USB to take our pictures home before even leaving the island! We cannot say thank you enough to Maureen for the beautiful and natural pictures that she captured of our family. We had not had pictures taken in 3 years, and it was such a wonderful opportunity to get updated photographs in a location that has quickly stolen our hearts. We are so pleased to have our happiness, joy, and memories of our time in HHI captured so beautifully.”

Maureen and her daughter were such wonderful at taking our pictures. They did not rush at all even though the session was 45 minutes, considering that we had a 2 year old to have pictures with they took ample time to get the pictures clicked and the end results were awesome. Her daughter was a great help at making my daughter smile in all of the pictures. And that’s not the end. We stayed in Hilton head for 3 days and she made sure that we took a pen drive of all our pictures before we left.
Grishma P.

“If you are looking for a photographer on Hilton Head, look no further than Maureen Snyder Photography. She has photographed our extended family three times now and our portraits have always been great! She is experienced, patient and professional and her daughter, Ashley, was so helpful with getting the youngest three kids to cooperate. We will definitely hire her again next year!”
Cathy S.

Maureen Snyder = outstanding. We love every one of the family beach photos she took. Maureen and her daughter brought out the best in our family of 10 (3 generations including grandparents, grown kids and grandchildren from 2 to 17). They worked cheerfully and patiently with a reluctant toddler. Maureen put everyone at their ease, and it shows in the pictures. When a little rain cut our scheduled session short, Maureen went above and beyond to make time for us to finish our photos. Thank you so much, Maureen! We will treasure these photos always.”
Jan W.

“Maureen’s exceptional ability to capture and create timeless images were portrayed with each candid moment … we will cherish our photos for many years to come. Thank you again for your very professional and personalize service…it truly was a pleasure working with you!”
Patty K.

“We had Maureen take our family photos in May and we were so impressed. She is so friendly and makes the experience enjoyable. The pictures turned out amazing and we will definitely use her again when we are in need of more family vacation pictures in HHI!”
Alex H.

“We would highly recommend Maureen Snyder Photography! Maureen is very personable and made everyone comfortable during our family session. She is experienced, professional, and attentive to details….which resulted in a beautiful family photo!”
Tammy H.

“Maureen did an awesome job shooting our family portraits. Her pictures turned out great! She was very patient with my two young children, ages 2 and 8 months, capturing sweet candid moments.”
Hallie D.

“Maureen was such a pleasure to work with. We recently had a family photo session while in HHI and could not be happier with the results. Maureen was extremely professional and her attention to detail helped us to capture our family memories. We would highly recommend Maureen to anyone interested in a photo session in the HHI area.”
Dan H.

“Just returned home last night from Hilton Head. Could not wait to download the beautiful family pictures taken by Maureen Snyder. The pictures made our vacation so special. Maureen has a talent of making all of us look great. She worked with our little ones so our pictures represent the family we are. Truly, these are the best pictures of all of us in a beautiful setting on the Disney Resort grounds. We thought it was going to rain and our smiles to Maureen made the rain hold off. Thank you so much  for memories galore.” 
Mary D.

“We love our new family beach portraits from Maureen Snyder Photography.  She was very patient with our three kids and made the session fun from start to finish.  Maureen made it all look so easy and we loved that our portraits were ready so quickly.  Her prices were very affordable and I can’t wait to get more printed for our home!
Kendra S.

We were in HHI this summer for our 14th summer and we were looking for a photographer to take some simple family photos. Maureen Snyder fit the bill! We have used other photographers before, and it entailed time taken away from our vacation to attend portrait viewings as well as having to buy expensive packages in order to provide photos for our extended family members. Maureen was super easy to work with and offered a no fuss option for some great family photos at a reasonable cost. She does a great job and you won’t be disappointed. May sound like a commercial but we were very pleased and would recommend her!
Kathy F.

We love our new family pictures by Maureen Snyder Photography! They are beautiful! Maureen made everything seem so easy and made us all very comfortable! I never thought getting our pictures taken could actually be fun too!
Kerri W.

I also highly recommend Maureen Snyder Photography. She took our photographs last week and they turned out absolutely stunning! She worked around the crazy weather and everything turned out amazing. I will definitely use her again. Give her a try, you won’t be disappointed!
Cortney R.

Maureen Snyder Photography is the best! I’ve used Maureen several times – for a family reunion of 20 people from age newborn to 75, indoor pictures of my kids as babies, and outdoor beach shots as they’ve gotten older. I have been so pleased every time. She is such a pleasure to work with, so patient with kids, and very good with my shy son. She has reasonable rates and takes wonderful pictures. My last experience was the best. We went to the beach for photos with my 4 and 6 year old boys. It was so windy and cold. Our noses were running and we had sand in our teeth. I didn’t think we’d get any good pictures, but Maureen didn’t let us down. She sat us down in the sand dunes and took some of the best shots of my family yet. We couldn’t believe how good the pictures were.
You won’t be disappointed.
