Victor and Lyra

I started One Life Photography in 2012, focusing in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Photography has always been a passion of mine, growing up I was always around an assortment of cameras. My grandfather was a professional photographer, and I always loved following him to see his work.

A Little bit about my past. I was born and raised in cold Ural mountains of Russian Federation, but found my home at the warm shores of Atlantic Ocean in Myrtle Beach SC. The idea behind starting my own business came to me after a couple of years of working for a photography studio in the Myrtle Beach Area.


Hi, my name is Lyra Cummings. I’m a photographer in the Myrtle Beach area, and Chicago during certain times of the year. I’m known for doing senior portraits, family, and boudoir in the photography industry.
I started photography in 2014 and have worked with many professionals over the years. Now I have invested myself into One Life Photography full-time to broaden the company’s overall skills and efficiency.
I was born in Moscow, Russia and came to the United States, Chicago, at the age of 2.
Now I have moved down to South Carolina, and graduated with Bachelor degree in Business Management from Coastal Carolina University while pursuing a photography career.

I want the people I’m photographing to celebrate what they believe to be extraordinary about themselves and each other. Part of my job is to help bring those qualities out in your photos to make them authentically you


our style

Fine art wedding photography. What that means is we are trying to preserve your images forever, making them look immaculate and timeless. We consider ourselves hybrid photographers, we love to mix the warmth of film and the sharpness of digital photography. For a long time, we had been feeling that something was missing in the digital world. We rediscovered film for its beautiful and timeless look, that is so pleasing to the human eye. During a wedding expect us to shoot about 20% of your images on a film camera and 80% on digital.
One Life Photography has been featured in numerous wedding magazines and blogs. We have also been awarded Wedding Wires couples choice award for 6 years in a row.
Being a Myrtle Beach wedding photographer doesn’t mean Myrtle Beach is the only area we work, it is simply where we are originated. One Life Photography will be happy to travel all over the states of North and South Carolina to capture your special day, and even further if need be.
