FULL DAY:  WHY ARE THERE 3 TEAM MEMBERS AT MY WEDDING DAY?

There's so much happening on a wedding day that 2 photographers are essential to provide documentary photography on a busy day. But if a team member has cold symptoms, becomes sick, or has an emergency on the wedding day, it is extremely difficult to find a replacement photographer at last minute's notice. Because we want peace of mind too (!) a third team member assigned to your wedding as a Wedding Assistant can also serve as a back-up photographer if the need arises. 

The Wedding Assistant helps photographers by carrying items to be photographed, clearing clutter for photos, holding bouquets, putting on boutonnieres, helping with your dress, posing groups, and being an extra hand for the two photographers. They're also an awesome lighting assistant for night photos!

what's your style?

No matter which team member is capturing your wedding, all photos are edited in a consistent style. Trailing Twine Photography only works with clients who ABSOLUTELY LOVE our natural, true-to-life colors, sprinkled with some black & white photos. A natural, true-to-life style means:
- colors as the eyes see it
- not "dark & moody" nor film/vintage
- not "bright & airy"

Full-service photography

how we're different

You don't have to be left "in the dark" with what to do about your photos. Trailing Twine Photography LLC is a full-service photography company, which means we don't just do digitals. Our clients often work directly with us in making their digital photos come to life in print. Clients can order prints, cards, album designing, wall art interior design & professional wall art installation. Every photography item is inspected and delivered by us. We love how we can help clients with whatever they need.

Wall art design & install

Clients can schedule design consultations on Zoom to finalize wall art for the home! It's so eye-opening to see how your photos can look in different sizes in a virtual design. We offer canvas, metal prints, wood displays, and framed prints of all kinds of mediums and frames. All wall art is professionally installed by one of our partner art installers, so you don't have to worry a thing!

Albums & Photobooks

We offer heirloom albums and photo books for clients to enjoy for the rest of their lives. Our books are thick, sturdy, and designed to last generations. Heirloom albums have wood or leather covers, and photo books are typically lower-budget with cardstock-like pages. Choose your own photos and Ling will design the spreads for your approval.

Small prints & cards

Prints sized 8x10" and smaller can be ordered through wedding online galleries, or ordered through email or phone call with Ling. You can also get card orders for thank-you's or save-the-dates, or holiday cards through various custom designs by Trailing Twine Photography.

LIFE IS ALL ABOUT CONNECTIONS.

photographing life's best moments

Trailing Twine Photography LLC started in 2013 with a farm girl in Oregon. Ling brought the love for agriculture into her new photography business, while still working a career as a dairy tech. Ling realized that home in Connecticut is where the heart is, and became a full-time photographer of families, weddings, and growing businesses.
As a team of photographer friends, we have photographed hundreds of weddings all over New England and destinations. More importantly, working with each other and learning about the people we photograph is essential to what we do.
It's about who you know.

"Ling and her team are absolutely wonderful and truly enjoy and love their jobs. Everything ran so smoothly and there were no details missed. These photographers quickly became our friends and made us extremely comfortable."
