Love is a common thread...loving thy neighbor! Life is short, and you were made to love and be loved. This is why we do photography, 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.  

But most of all, Trailing Twine Photography clients are investing in top-notch service & incredible images to enjoy beyond the wedding day. We value marriage & documenting the abundant life.

Invest in an experience.


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 meeting with Ling to discuss wedding photography. 

We believe in real, honest, exchanges of love.



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 covers. Flip through real wedding albums, look at how the pages are designed. 

Look at images in print, wedding albums and photobooks. 

Make your wedding images see the light of day.



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.


"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! 

Instruct movement, infuse emotion. 

Adios, boring stand-and-kiss pose.


Get the full experience by meeting with me within a few weeks after your engagement session or wedding. Tell me which is "that look of love". Rate your favorite images with me for your engagement book, or Homecraft Leatherbook. I also make sure you have that USB drive of pics in your hand. We can meet in your home, or in my own space called The Country Nook. Other alternative meeting spaces are: The Farm at Summit Wynds near Holden, MA, Sofa Cafe in Framingham, MA, or Heirloom Market & Cafe in Wethersfield, CT.

Let's review images for the album in my Country Nook in Brooklyn, CT.

Tell me the images you're obsessed with.


Life is short. Focus on the moments that matter. That also includes, literally, seeing your printed images every day. Let's create PRINTS, WALL ART, BOOKS, that will serve as gentle reminders of people in our lives that we cherish.

Contact me to help you spice up your home with beautiful imagery. Way better than Instagram. 

Choose from a variety of albums, books, wood displays, metal prints, and more. 

If you're getting married at any of these locations & you book Trailing Twine, you get a free Homecraft Leatherbook wedding album at no additional cost. Yup. 

(value >$7000)

"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:

You can't go wrong using Ling as a photographer on one of the most important days of your life." 


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.
