our signature style
Natural, non-posey photos
Photos don’t have to always be awkward! Formally-posed group photos are very brief, but fun & laid-back portraits with direction for natural movement is our jam. Just be you, so your photos represent YOU! We’ll get to know each other, whether it’s via an engagement session, or video meeting with your team prior to the wedding day.
more than just a wedding
Invest in Memories
There’s a lot of love that goes into planning the first day of your marriage, so we photograph everything from the day’s details, to hugs and laughter of family and friends that have come from afar to see you! But wedding photography with Trailing Twine is more than just one day. That’s why with all weddings, there’s a specific workflow, assignment of photographers from our team, including a backup team member in case of illness or emergency.
Our photo & video team members are: Ling, Jenna, Branden, Matt, Emily, Ashley, Jacqueline, Jeff, Ty, Kevin

our editing style
natural, true-to-life editing style for all photos and videos
we're all about a natural look
What's your photo 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”
bright & airy editing style
This is definitely not our style. The bright & airy style is bright, with colors slightly desaturated and sometimes having a brighter film feel.
Our True-to-life edit
This is our style and we don't like to deviate from it. Colors and skin tones are realistic, as the eye sees it. Greens are green!
dark & moody editing style
This is not our style. The colors are darker, and often very warm with a vintage or film feel. Skin tones are darker and sometimes greens are desaturated.
invest in teamwork experience & professionalism
Strength in numbers.
There are plenty of photographers who can photograph a wedding. The reason why we are a team of photographers, instead of just an individual photographer, is because there is strength in numbers.
When we work together and collaborate, whether it’s sharing ideas, learning from each other, or photographing a wedding together, more is accomplished!
What if your photographer gets sick? Our couples don’t have to worry about finding a replacement lead photographer for the day in case a situation arises, we take care of it.
Photographers: Jacqueline, Jeff, Jenna, Matt, Ashley, Ling, Emily, Branden
Videographers: Kevin, Ty, Ling, Branden
photographing life's best moments
Life is all about connections.
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.
