Victor and Lyra

In 2012, I founded One Life Photography in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Photography has always been a passion of mine. Since I was a child, I was surrounded by various cameras and my grandfather, a professional photographer, provided me with inspiring experiences.

I originally hail from the cold Ural mountains of Russia, but I found my home at the warm shores of the Atlantic Ocean. This inspired me to begin my own photography business in the area after a few years of working for a local photography studio.


My name is Lyra Cummings and I am a professional photographer in the Myrtle Beach area specializing in weddings, senior portraits, family, and boudoir shoots. I ventured into the industry in 2014 and have since learned a lot from other professionals.

This motivated me to immerse myself in One Life Photography full-time to enhance the company's overall proficiency and expertise. Originally hailing from Moscow, Russia, I moved to Chicago at the age of two.

Afterward, I relocated to South Carolina and acquired a Bachelor's degree in Business Management from Coastal Carolina University while focusing on a photography pursuit.
I currently reside in Myrtle Beach with my dog biscuit.

At One Life Photography, our goal is to provide timeless and immaculate fine art wedding photography. We are hybrid photographers who merge the warmth of film and the sharpness of digital photography to capture your special day. We shoot around 20% of the images on a film camera and the rest digitally, emphasizing a pleasing and timeless look to the human eye. Based in Myrtle Beach, we proudly serve the states of North and South Carolina and can travel further to capture your wedding if need be.
We are proud to be featured in numerous wedding magazines and blogs and to have received the Wedding Wires Couples Choice Award for six years running.
