Faith changed my heart to love thy neighbor. Love is a common thread. Life is short, and you were made to love and be loved. This is why I am a photographer, giving people moments to look back on to remember the good times when we were loved.

read on, if this is you!

Does "traditional" and "posed" makes you want to run away? Is your understanding of how photographers do portraits still kind of murky? Unless you're a model, how do you know if a photographer can instruct you, your body parts, your facial expressions, to LOOK like you, authentically? How do you know if you'll even feel comfortable in front of their camera? You want to look good, and feel fabulous in photos. You want a photographer who extracts your personalities for portraits, and also blends in with your wedding guests to catch that laughter and the candids of vibrant life at your event.  

you don't want "cheese" or a boring stance that looks like you're back at prom.

01

First step is to contact Ling to schedule a phone chat, or even better, a meeting in-person with you and your fiance. The first step is for me to learn about your personalities, and your wedding day plans. This in-person planning meeting when we first meet helps me get to know your vision of the day, and you learn a little more about me. This is the first step in my mission to inspire your love story, and make memories of real, honest exchanges of love.  May your wedding images be a reminder of your love & commitment that officially began on that wedding day.  

schedule a phone chat or in-person meeting. 

We believe in real, honest, exchanges of love.

SCHEDULE A MEETING

02

At every in-person meeting, you get to see what a wood print looks and feels like. You'll also see the difference between a wedding album and a photobook. Touch and feel the leather and wood covers. Flip through real wedding albums, look at how the pages are designed. 

Look at printed images, wedding albums and books. 

Let your images see the light of day.

SCHEDULE A MEETING

02

After booking, we will schedule your engagement session so that you'll learn some of the instructions, and learn how I shoot. Because we are all unique photographers, unique couples and people, it's important that we know how to avoid awkward wedding photos. The engagement shoot is the #1 way to get authentic, natural images. 

LeaRN HOW to show your awesomeness in an engagement session. REQUIRED.  

Photograph movement, infuse emotion.

02

You have a choice between two types of sessions: The FUN & FREE session, or the SIMPLE & SWEET. If you're the type who just wants to learn the basics, then let's meet in my area for a SIMPLE & SWEET session. For couples who want a kick-butt engagement shoot, the FUN & FREE session is for you. It's an incredible "date" day of incorporating your hobbies, pets, adventures, and learning all the different ways to natural unposed moments.  

Adios, traditional posing.   

All wedding collections include engagement sessions.

Within a couple weeks after the engagement session, we review our photos for the first time. This is where I learn about the types of shots/poses/instructions that BOTH of you really love. Even though y'all aren't supermodels, you'll see how your photos express how you're supermodels in your OWN way. This image review is also where I find out which types of images and facial expressions WORK and that's what I'll focus on in your wedding day portrait time (which is usually a shorter time frame). For the meeting, we can meet in your home or in one of my special meeting places. 

meet with me to review the shots!

The mission of Trailing Twine Photography is to make imagery to inspire your love story, and make memories of real, honest exchanges of love. My vision is for couples to be inspired in their marriages to grow in love & commitment beyond the wedding day. 

WE BELIEVE IN real, honest exchanges of lovE.  

WANTED: down-to-earth people.

02

"Photojournalistic" or "documentary" photography means that we tell a story from images. We scout for scenes and action, and instruct and photograph a person's movement during portraits. Then we infuse emotion into the shot by having you think, do, or speak something specific. BAM! 

photograph movement, infuse emotion. 

Adios, boring stand-and-kiss pose.

Caitlin & Alex

We used trailing Twine to shoot our wedding and IT was the best decision we ever made.

"We used Trailing Twine to shoot our wedding and it was the best decision we ever made. Ling was courteous, kind, professional, and outgoing. She even traveled to NH from CT for our engagement photos. On our wedding day, she really made it easy by going to both the grooms and brides locations while we got ready. Pictures came out AMAZING!! Couldn't be happier with our decision and would recommend to everyone looking for a great wedding photographer!!!" 

JENnifer & BRAD

We are truly able to relive the day and everything that happened.

"If you are looking for a photojournalistic photographer, Ling is your girl! She has this amazing ability to capture pictures and moments that are true to the day and what is going on. Looking back on all our photos we are truly able to relive the day and everything that happened. Ling went out of her way in every single aspect of the process and this made it easier for us to know that she had everything under control." 

BRYNNE & DON 

She mastered the lighting for sure, all our pictures came out perfect!

Ling gets to know you leading up to the wedding and personalizes your photography experience. She captured our dream photos on our wedding day and delivered them in an impressive amount of time.

SARAH & ELI 

everything felt natural and our wedding's setting was highlighted.

Everything turned out better than we could have hoped-- the pictures look phenomenal and captured the more "natural" look I was hoping for. Prior to booking Trailing Twine, I was worried that my wedding photographs would look stiff and posed, but Ling made sure everything felt natural and that our wedding's beautiful setting was highlighted. Couldn't have asked for a better wedding photography experience.

REVIEWS

WHO I AM

The most important part of my life is my husband. I met my husband when I lived in Oregon. We both volunteered for a homeless ministry, and were just acquaintances for 3 years before we became pals, hanging out at coffee shops, and long conversations after church. It wasn't until I announced my plans to move back home to Connecticut when Neil realized he didn't want to live life without me. When we first became an "item" we both knew, without a shadow of a doubt, that we were meant to be life partners. There's a lot more to this story... I'd love to tell you over a glass of wine how crazy our story is!
