Commonly Asked Questions


Where are you located?
I am located in Colchester Connecticut. I service a wide range of Connecticut and surrounding states. Having a destination wedding? I am available for travel, and enjoy doing so!
Please inquire about having SMS Photo at your destination wedding.

Can we meet before booking?

I often meet with potential clients and enjoy doing so. This gives us a chance to get to know each other, and for you to decide if our personalities are a great match. When scheduling a time to meet, let me know what your favorite Starbucks menu item is. I'll be waiting to answer all your questions with a Green Iced Tea by my side.

Do we need a Second Photographer?
Second Photographers are my second pair of hands and eyes. I network with a select few photographers that have similar style and taste as I do. They work fluidly beside me and is a crucial asset to any wedding day.

Who is Chris Goodchild?

Chris Goodchild, aka, Goody is my right hand when it comes to photographing a wedding and is the perfect compliment to my shooting style. Together, we make the ultimate photographer duo. We seamlessly flow throughout the wedding day with a carefully crafted plan to ultimately focus on the most important details. Goody is extremely experienced and comes with his own bag tricks. While specializing in long exposures and dreamy portraits, he also becomes one with the groomsmen and a staple on the dance floor. You and your guests will truly enjoy Chris as an addition to your wedding day.

We’re not sure about a first look
I recommend the first look to every couple who may be anxious to walk down the aisle; and to all couples with a date booked from October to March. It is also a good option if you prefer to enjoy your cocktail hour with your guests!

Can we print our own photos?
You have full rights to print your images. But I must suggest having them printed through my most trusted lab. All sizes are available for purchase through SMS Photo.

Should we have a wedding album?
There are two really important things about having a wedding album. 1. Instant sharing, yes, better than your smart phone. 2. Convenient to look back on as your best day ever. Hand Designed albums are available at an additional fee.

How do we share on Social Media?
The photos provided will not have a watermarked image. It will be your responsibility to give credit to SMS Photo on the entirety of an online social media album or single post by tagging SMS Photo (@smsphotoct) 

Engagement Session?
I believe every couple should experience an engagement session with SMS Photo, and here is why. We get to meet in person, which I think is the one most important part of this process. In that time, we get comfortable working together. You learn how I pose you, I learn your good side, It’s a win win.

How soon until the collection is delivered?
8 Weeks. About a week before I will contact you to set up a time where I can personally deliver your collection or I can have it delivered to your door via USPS
