Trotter Photo did an amazing job for our wedding day and I would highly recommend them!! Our pictures and highlight video turned out better than I expected!! I watch the video and look at the pictures constantly! They were very responsive by phone/email, and they also have late... Read More hours during the week days for meeting which was helpful! All of their packages were straight forward and inclusive to the level of service we wanted. We had Shelby and Callie as our main photographers and Matt as our videographer, they each did a great job! They followed the schedule we had set for the day and were able to get all the pictures I had asked for! They were professional, friendly, and patient. Throughout the entire day we never had to worry about them capturing the right moment/photo. Trotter made us feel like a priority from day one. I am so glad we chose them to capture our special day!

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!

Our photographer, Emily, was wonderful to work with. She was really on top of getting all the shots we were wanting and then some that we weren't planning on, but that turned out phenomenal. We only had a limited time to get a bunch of family photos at the church and she was... Read More able to get them all done. She captured all the moments of the day and was good at giving direction for poses . Be aware that when you get your CDs back there's no special editing done besides a couple of effects on a few photos. However, we are still really happy our pictures and their quality especially when considering the savings we had compared to the cost of other photographers we considered.

Rob and I got married September 2016. I am sooo happy with our photography by Trotter's.

Our pictures turned out pretty good for our wedding, but we felt as though the photographer did not listen to our needs and desires about pictures. She was very bossy and upset some of my bridal party with her behaviors.

We booked Denise with Trotter Photo at the recommendation of a few recently married friends, and we couldn't be happier! She is such a fun person, and really knew what she was doing. We did an engagement photo session with her last fall, which really helped us know what to... Read More expect on our wedding day. She was very quick to respond to my questions and helped me plan through our wedding day. The day was great and Denise was so much fun! She made sure to ask us every time we finished up at a location (we had 2 locations other than our ceremony and reception spot) if we had all the shots we wanted. She was also super helpful in directing us to get some great shots--both at McNair park and on Main Street in St. Charles. She showed up a little early and stayed a little late, just to make sure we got all the shots we needed. We also had a second photographer, Wendy, join us at the park for pictures before our ceremony and all during the ceremony. She was also very nice and took some fun and candid shots of my wedding party while my groom and I were taking portraits. We're still waiting to see our photos, but both Denise and Wendy would often show us some shots of photos after taking them. We had a blast taking photos all day long, and even got our four-legged ring bearer in some shots too! We would definitely recommend Denise to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!
