My name is Elizabeth Grace Smith and I am the owner and founder of Capture Your Happily Ever After. You may recognize me as the host and creator of the Merry Grinchmas event. It's an annual charity that takes place during the holidays to raise funds for local animal shelters or other charity organizations, namely Dorchester Paws and the SPCA. Aside from coordinating Weddings and other special gatherings, I'm very passionate about photography and films. Some of the work can be seen under the photo gallery as well as at the bottom of the page and throughout the website. I enjoy most working natural lighting. My photography would be best described as a fun experience, it's more of a lifestyle documentary that easily fits your personality and life. My work is candid and portraits shoot style. Sometimes I work alongside my husband Jason Lee Smith, who specializes in film production. He creates beautiful cinematic wedding films. Check out 1 of his latest highlight films taken from our Odyssey package! We have been working and traveling the Low Country since 2012 and we can proudly say that all of the couples whose weddings we've captured have had a 100% success rate in sustaining a healthy and lasting marriage. Coincidence? Or do we truly capture your happily ever after? ;)
(That's me, and Jason in the picture above with Ben and us at the bottom of the page at the end of June 2021 at his first birthday party, and on the bottom of the page is our baby boy Benjamin at 12 months old - June 2021 )
Sarah Camille is the primary backup photographer. She is an amazing shooter as well as one of the most pleasant people you will ever meet! Cami and I have known each other for over 15 years, and we started to work together over a year ago now!
Samuel G. is the second assistant photographer and assistant coordinator.
He's friendly and witty and knows how to really pull things together and help out.
Jamal is the backup and second videographer. He filmed "Merry Grinchmas" one of my favorite donation events I have created! Check out his work on "more" tab!
We listen to you and help creatively frame your wedding or portrait to be a beautiful start and middle for your happily ever after! We work with you in all chapters of life.
