Love Trotter! posted 5/22/2014 (modified 5/23/2014)

We booked Trotter Photo and Trotter Photo Booth because they were a recommended vendor of Windows on Washington (our venue). They were so easy to work with, allowing us to customize a photo package with exactly what we wanted. Our engagement photos were great! Our wedding photographer was amazing! She worked quickly and efficiently so we were able to get all the shots we wanted without delaying dinner. She was profession and fun to work with. The photo booth was a huge hit with the guests. They were able to be silly and provide us with lots of memorable photos. I would absolutely recommend Trotter Photo and Photo Booth to anyone!

Fantastic Experience! posted 10/9/2013

Although we haven't received our photos yet, I couldn't have asked for a better photographer in Denise! She took the time to work well with us, the kids, and all of our guests. When I started to become stressed, she took the time to make me feel at ease. She went well above the job description when she made sure I had water, was cool enough, and took the time to sit and relax for a minute with my shoes off! :)
She didn't make us feel rushed, and she listened to exactly what we wanted. She was happy, funny, and genuinely seemed to love what she does.
Even after the wedding, one of the 3 most heard compliments was, "Your photographer was fantastic!" Loved her! :)

We selected Trotter Photography because of an offer we saw on one of their advertising fliers. When we arrived for our appointment, we were told that the offer "was no longer available". ( There was no expiration date printed on the flier. The term "bait and switch" comes to mind) After almost an hour and a half were settled on a package that was going to cost about 3 times the amount of the package we originally thought we would get. There ended up being additional charges for the engagement pics, which the flier said were included in the package. We paid extra to have the photo disc mailed to us. It required 3 phone calls to get the disc after several weeks. Each time we called we were told that they were going to be mailed that day. Finally we were told "Oh the envelope was placed in the mail basket but was never sent. It took another 2 weeks and another phone call before it arrived. When the disc arrived, there was a collage picture with the names printed on it. Unfortunately the names were NOT those of the engaged couple. In the end, we did not need the services of Trotter photography. It has now taken me numerous phone calls and emails and several months to get a refund of the money I paid. I still have not received it. The photos we got were of average quality. The service we received has been terrible. Planning a wedding is stressful enough! The bride and her family should not have to deal with poor business practices and average photography.

Wedding Photography posted 7/13/2014

I enjoyed working with the photographer and the pictures turned out great. I was disappointed in the time leading up to the wedding because I never even met the photographer assigned to my wedding. She called 3 days before the wedding and asked me to get shots together that I would like. I had tried to meet with them 2 times before to meet the photographer and they just looked at me like I had three heads.

Couldn't be happier! posted 6/5/2014

I am really happy that I went with trotter...I've been really impressed by all of the pictures including the ednagement and wedding picures. The price was reasonable.. the best I found and I loved my photographer Denise. She took amazing pictures and was comfortable to be around. She also was really helpful that day..always fixing my train, carrying my husband's food at the reception and busteling my dress. I am happy with the guest book that I got and I can;t wait to see how the wedding album turns out because the pictures are gorgeous and I have recieved multiple compliments on how good the pictures are. I definately would recommend trotter and definatelt Denise as the photographer.

disappointed posted 12/29/2012

I'm a parent of a groom who used Trotter so I did not choose them and the couple was very laid back about expectations. Trotter seems to have many, many photographers either on staff or contracted because I think they did 15+ weddings on the same day by looking at the website proofs. I may be wrong, but I don't think they had the same photographer for engagement and wedding. The outdoor photography was good. but indoors it was just OK. The only pic of me dancing with my son was of my back from a distance. A friend took a better one. He only took a couple hundred pics total. The paper quality of finished enlargements was equal to Walgreens and yet they were VERY expensive. The photo books were nice but a 'parents' size made the photos far too small to really enjoy. I guess all the brides who are writing the reviews are not thinking about that. I recommend going with a less commercial photographer.

Easy to work with posted 12/10/2012

Angela was awesome! We met beforehand and she knew exactly what I wanted. The day of she took control and got what she needed in a timely manner but stayed calm and patient the entire time. She was flexible and ready for any changes I threw at her. Trotter was great and willing to work with me and my budget to get me exactly what I wanted!

Not the best posted 11/6/2012

We had a few problems finding a photographer so we decided to try out trotter. The first problem with Trotter photo was that they would not let us meet with our photograher until the week of the wedding and would not let us know who he or she is as well which was not cool with us. After mutliple phone calls 3 weeks before our wedding we got a chance to meet with the photographer we had. Although he seemed very nice and had alot of of experience his work was not the type of photography we wanted so we asked if we could swith to a photographer that was more artistic. They said that this would be fine and would contact us about someone else and never did. We called and told them we wanted out money back because our wedding was coming to close and we did not want to pay for pictures that were not our style. If you try this photographer make sure you see your photographers work first because this is something very important.

Awesome Personal Detail posted 10/18/2012

We got married on June 30, 2012. The temps were 106 for the day. Our photographer was AMAZING. I had frantically tried to find indoor locations for or photos the day before, and had to change the original schedule. Our photographer helped us book the City Museum for our photos. We had quite a quirky bunch that just wanted to have fun and she captured that in our pictures. She was easy going and very easy to work with. From my initial meeting with Trotter to picking out the photos for our book, everything went smooth and flawless. They are very easy to work with and very accommodating. The package prices are some of the best in St. Louis. There is something for every budget. They will work with you to create a package that fits your needs as well.

Wedding Review posted 10/11/2012

We used Trotter for both our photographer and photo booth. We were satisfied with both of them and would recommend them to a friend. We had Melissa as our photographer and she was great. She was very professional and very fun and I can't wait to see her work! I would give Trotter a 5 out of 5.
