We booked Trotter Photo and Trotter Photo Booth because they were a recommended vendor of Windows on Washington (our venue).

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.

Denise from Trotter Photo in St. Charles was our wedding photographer on Halloween 2014. I was so impressed with her pictures, as well as the personal touch she put on everything throughout the day! From helping my sister tie me into my dress, to helping with a stubborn... Read More bustle, and even giving me a foot massage when those darn Cinderella heels started getting the better of me, I didn't even have to say the word - she was like a second mother all day long! Denise knows weddings, knows which angles to capture, and doesn't settle until the picture is lovely and flattering for all involved. As a bride with a budget who had no idea what a bustle was, I was able to enjoy every minute of the day knowing Denise was there to help! I 100% recommend Trotter Photo, and definitely get the photo booth if there will be children at your wedding - that kept the little ones busy all night!

Trotter Photo was incredible to work with! My parents used them as their wedding photography 30 years ago and my husband and I chose to use them and were nothing but satisfied. Both our office interactions with Charlie and his staff and our wedding photographers were... Read More fantastic. Mandy and her assistant were polite, accommodating, and flexible. They guided us through the timing options for photos and made sure to check in prior to the event about any questions we had and what photo opportunities we would like.

Thank you Trotter Photo for all of your hard work to make the photos of our big day so wonderful!

I just received my proofs and the photos are terrible. I don't know if I'll purchase any to be honest. Most are off center, lacking in clarity, too far away to make out anyone's face... I'm so upset and there is nothing I can do now except for hope that guests took better... Read More photos. I'm not sure what we paid for. We had two photographers and have the worst pictures. I was not expecting this at all. Whatever you do.....DO NOT USE THESE PEOPLE!!! I am literally crying. Utter disappointment.
