Eric and Susan Smith

Captured Moments Photography is owned by husband/wife team Eric and Susan Smith. They operated a thriving home studio in Southern Maryland for over 25 years, photographing 300-400 high school seniors each year, in addition to families and children. After their kids grew up and moved out, they decided to relocate to Beaufort in April of 2011.  They bought and renovated a duplex on Adventure St. in the historic district, which serves as both their home and studio. They have fallen in love with Beaufort and the surrounding area, and are happy to call this beautiful place "Home".


Eric Smith is an award winning photographer with over 30 years experience. He is a true photographer, mastering the ability to adapt to any situation which presents itself. He uses corrective posing and lighting to accentuate the positive and minimize the negative. Even on location, he uses lighting to complement the subject. He uses a unique style for his artistic photography to create a richly textured, one-of-a-kind look. 

Susan Stott-Smith owns and manages the studio, handling sales and marketing, production, image enhancement, and just about everything else. She is NOT a photographer! Her strength lies in taking an already great image and enhancing it to perfection in the computer.
