     I'm Shannon, the owner of SMS Photo. I'm probably ten times more awkward than you think you are. That should take the heat off. I love to make people feel good about themselves and help them find their confidence. I do this mostly by tripping over something (I am so not smooth sometimes). I love to laugh and make the best of every situation. I always come prepared with handy little odd tools, you'd never know you needed on your wedding day. When I'm not dancing and enjoying wedding cake with my amazing brides and grooms, I'm at home with my family, teaching my son how to grow up to be the best little man. If I'm not home, I just might be out enjoying some wine and tacos while crafting with my girls. 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 dreams and plans for your big day!

with love,
