Capture The Moment
We are fortunate to have one of our captains also be a professional yacht photographer. Captain Dustin Ryan has been capturing images of everything from the volcanoes of the Hawaiian Islands, racing yachts in the open ocean, to double rainbows during a proposal on Fate. You can count on Dustin to be in the right place at the right time to capture that special moment! Every image on this entire website was captured by Dustin himself. Many of Dustin's images have made their way into yachting and travel magazines around the world.
Having a photographer on staff not only saves you time looking for one, but also saves you a ton of money. Dustin only charges $200.00 for the entire session including high resolution, non-watermarked downloads of the edited images. Professional prints are extra but very affordable and available directly from the website, you can also make prints on your own with the digital downloads. Normally a photographer will have a sitting fee of up to $1,300 or more and then you still have to pay for the images. Not on Fate, with a booked charter, pay one small fee and get to download alll the images. View some of our past proposals on the Dustin's website located at DustinKRyanPhotography.com.
If you wish to have that special occasion fully documented make sure you request it when you book, otherwise you will only end up with a few shots on our facebook gallery photo stream with watermarks. Every single charter is captured and images are placed here for guests to view. If you wish not to have your photo taken just let us know and we will stick with the scenery.
Family portraits are one of those things you will always cherish. We have the best backdrops you could imagine while sailing on the Charleston Harbor. From the Ravenel Bridge to some of the most incredible sunsets, if you would like a family portrait, just let us know.
Images will be uploaded to our Facebook page at no charge. Prints can be available for purchase, just let us know and we will send you a link.
Weddings & Proposals
Proposing can be difficult to plan but not when you plan it on Fate. We work with you to help plan the smallest details so she will never find out. We have had 100% success on Fate, and the women never know what's coming.
Being on the water for so many years, Dustin has quite a collection of amazing sailing images. The one above is of Brad Van Liews 60ft racing yacht Le Pingouin. Brad won his second Velux 5 Oceans, around the world alone race on this high performance yacht in 2011.
