New photography studio opens

in Uncategorized by

Captured Moments Photography has arrived in Beaufort. Eric and Susan Smith recently sold their home in Maryland, and moved their established photography studio to 1402 King St. in Beaufort, bringing along all their props and backgrounds and gear. Eric is an award-winning photographer who specializes in studio portraiture.

“I’m not a picture taker, but rather a portrait creator,” says Eric. He controls all the lighting and the look of the image he creates. Creating mood and emotion is a specialty in studio lighting. Susan runs the business end of things, overseeing production and sales and marketing.

Eric has photographed over 400 weddings in a 10-12 year period. In 1997, he transitioned to strictly studio portraiture and specializes in high school seniors, families, babies and military portraits. It was a tough decision to give up their busy studio in Maryland, but the couple fell in love with Beaufort and decided to avoid those northern winters.

“We hope to bring our reputation with us. We have over 700 Facebook fans, so our new clients can see what we’ve done and read all the happy comments from our clients.” says Susan.
