Shannon M. Sylvester

I'm Shannon, the owner of SMS Photo. Every single memory I have is backed by a photograph which is why I believe memories should be preserved in a tangible way.  While I love capturing memories, I also care deeply about making people feeling good about themselves. I love to laugh and make the best of every situation. I always come prepared with handy little tools, you'd never know you needed on your wedding day. When I'm not celebrating with my couples, I'm at home with my family, doing home projects, gardening, or with my chickens! If I'm out and about, I just might be out eating my weight in tacos or sushi and crafting with my best friends. In between all of that, I'm creating all the great ways I can make your vision come to life. I can't wait to chat with you about your plans for your big day!

with love,



kind words

"Shannon has an eye like no other! She is a creative and very talented photographer! She comes prepared for everything and anything, my dress ripped at my wedding and she whipped out a sewing kit to give to my mom!! She made me very relaxed and comfortable throughout my whole day! Highly recommend her, you won’t be disappointed!
