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... Read More 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!

I had Caleb work my wedding and it was so nice. he also did our engagement photos which came out BEAUTIFUL. We are still waiting on our wedding photos but I can't wait.

Absolutely Incredible Service!

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!

*******BRIDES BEWARE OF TROTTERPHOTO******** We hired TROTTERPHOTO to photograph our June wedding and upon receiving our wedding photos a few weeks later we were EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED at the job of our photographer (I cried for a week). We had two photographers (one for 3 hours... Read More and the other for 8 hours) and our second photographer’s photos were not any better. We booked them a year in advance and was reassured that their photographers had taken pictures at the venue that we were going to be married. A few days before the wedding I received a call from the photographer who knew nothing of this venue. With the chaos of family coming into town and finalizing the wedding details he assured us all would be fine and we would be happy with our pictures. Thinking back on that adrenalin rush of a day I now realize that my photographers did not even know what the HELL they was doing when it came to posing us for pictures, where to place us for pictures, taking only one or maybe two pictures (did mention he took 5 pictures of my SHOES, but only one picture of my wedding party going down the aisle), making sure that things around us was free of people, zooming in on photos (I have pictures that he zoomed so far out you can’t even see us) and the wedding ceremony are all shots from the bride side so you see only the back of me and a few profiles of my husband. What we have since learned about TROTTERPHOTO is that they have many photographers on staff so when you go to book your wedding you do not know who your photographer will be or the work that person is capable of doing. SADLY we learned a very expensive lesson and should have shopped around looking for a photographer that does not have a huge staff and you have the opportunity to see there work.

Trotter Photography was the official photographer for our son’s wedding this past July. I was very impressed starting with the first look photos early that afternoon. Shelby, our photographer, was not intrusive but rather present to capture the moment. There were 3 different...
