After all is said and done, photography and video are your treasured keepsakes for the rest of your life. Trotter Photo has 49 years of experience telling couples’ stories. Our experience allows us to take the stress out of the unknowns involved in wedding planning.

Our services include a client portal, so you have online access at all times to review your contract, payments, and other related documents. We stay in contact over the course of your engagement, sharing items to think about in preparation for your big day. Prior to your wedding day, your photographer and videographer go through the timeline of events to ensure all details are covered and you feel rest assured well in advance. Don’t worry - we also realize how things can fluctuate the day of. With Trotter Photo’s decades of experience, we feel confident not only managing the unexpected, but also family and friends throughout the day, so you remain focused on one another.
“Seeing our couples reactions to their captured memories is such a special moment for us at Trotter Photo,” says Josie Stone, owner. “It’s months of teamwork at every level for the big unveiling - no two weddings are the same.” .
We recently added the availability of a ‘wish list’ registry for couples to collect gift certificates from family and friends for use towards custom keepsakes. Now our couples can feel more guilt free ordering items such as a large canvas print to hang above the fireplace.
Our mission is to capture your vision, your moment, your forever.

This is your chance to capture all of the love, devotion, and excitement you and your future spouse feel without being rushed or in a hurry to get to the reception or sit through a toast. It’s where we get to take as much time as we need to get things just right. Just relax and have fun while we take engagment photos.
Where do you like to go? What is your shared passion? What is it you two enjoy doing with one another? What will make your love and lifetime of togetherness unique? Our expertise is to help bring your true selves out and into the best possible light in photos. All you have to do is keep an open mind and have fun!
Happy memories, unique personalities, and fun times will all come together in a perfect storm when you use one of our photo booths at your event. In addition to photographic keepsakes, photo booths are a great way to show a full history of who attended and enjoyed your event. See friends, family, children, co-workers, employees, vendors, and clients in a new light!
We have over a dozen custom designed black draped photo booths, in addition to a fish-eye photo booth (which is free standing and wide angle) and a blow-up cloud booth with LED color changing lights. Great for birthdays, bar mitzvahs, bat mitzvahs, school parties, and more! All booths equipped with professional cameras (nothing built-in about us) and photo lab printers for the very best prints.
Our professional booths are set up in a flash and attendants remain present at the booth during your entire event. With our online photo booth design, we make it easy to customize your event prints. Choose from a variety of themed props and background options. From classic to crazy, super silly to serious, the photo booth is entirely up to the hosts and guests imagination.
Trotter Photo invites you to visit our studios for an in-person demo.
School photos capture life in transition. From grade school to junior high. From junior high to high school. From high school to college. From being a kid to becoming an adult, it is important that Trotter Photo captures you, your personality, and your uniqueness in all your school photos, and especially in your senior photos.
Part of what we offer to all students, and especially seniors, is options. We can take photos inside at either one of two Trotter Photo locations. This allows us to control the lighting and background in order to get that perfect shot. We can also take photos on location and be open to more spontaneous and random photos. It is up to you!
There is a reason for the saying, “The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat!” All of the time, effort, and hard work you put into sports can be captured at just the perfect moment. And it is often not just the sport itself, but the entire event that happens around a sports: family, alumni, fans, bands, cheerleaders, mascots, tailgating, etc.
Sports is one of the enduring ways we still come together. We want to make sure every child (from grade school, to junior high school, to high school, to college) gets their moment in the sun. Again, it is the perfect combination of preparation and inspiration that makes great sports photo happen. We can help!
Time flies when you are having fun growing up! Whether you await the first big hit, throw, catch, swing, pass, shot, kick, or dance move, you are going to want the memory of your child in that freshly cleaned uniform with a big smile on their face and a world of possibilities.
And with so many different sports and dance clubs, it can be hard to keep track of who is where and before you know it, the season has come and gone. That is where Trotter Photo comes in! We make sure you get a photo that will someday become a keepsake memory.
There is a reason we say, “They grow up so fast.” It is because they do! And the only way you will keep the quickly fading memories of that perfect face with the perfect outfit with the perfect look is by setting aside some time to take some professional photos. Entrust us to get you a great photo of your child!
And whether it is the controlled lighting and background inside Trotter Photo or a more random and spontaneous photo at an outside location, we can help! And because we are always taking photos of children, we know the tricks to get the look you wanted and possibly the look you never knew you wanted too.
Family photos are a way to preserve memories of special time and place. Because there is just something about bringing everyone together. Older and younger and everyone in between. Children, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, family pets, and whomever else your deem as being important and influential in your life.
We also realize “family” means different things to different people and are always respectful and understanding in your choices. Then we can take the perfect “controlled” photo inside one of our two locations or we can schedule a more spontaneous and personal photo at the location of your choosing. Let us know!
Engaging? Welcoming? Approachable? Professional? Serious? Knowledgeable? No matter how much things change, people still want to see and know the kind of people they are currently doing business with (or perhaps plan to do business with in the future).
Trotter Photo is experienced in getting the business portraits you need whether it is the traditional controlled lighting and background at the studio or in a more informal outdoor (or on location) setting. And since we are always taking portraits, we know how to get the look you wanted and possibly the look you never knew you wanted!
There is the old saying that “a picture is worth a thousand words” and that is certainly the case when it comes to both explaining and selling your product. Not only are you showing the function of how the product works or is used, you are trying to deliver an overall branding message about your product.
What makes your product interesting? What makes it unique or fun or sexy or worthwhile? How are you trying to make customers and potential customers think, and even more importantly feel, when they are making that decision to purchase or not purchase? It is as much about art as it is function. We can help!
A bulding is only new once and you only get one shot at a grand opening of a new business. You need that sparking, clean, and fresh look captured. Then you need to also capture the excitement of an event or a speaker or a new service launch. Or you want to sell or lease or rent a property and need it to look just right?
Trotter Photo has lots of experience capturing the look that you want for your commercial business so it can get the attention you seek. After all of your hard work and efforts to get everything looking just right, do not overlook the need for a series of great photos, which you can keep and reuse over and over.
Are you an entertainer or a band? A festival or a fair? A parade or a party? Maybe some kind a non-profit or a religious organization? Our expertise is capturing those perfect moments of passion, excitement, frivolity, and FUN. Our photographers take photos at all kinds of events in all kinds of places.
Our photographers love to get out and go on location. There is just something about the randomness and the shared experience of a certain moment within a group. Whether it’s more primal or more prim and propper, we can help you with your event. Just let us know the date(s) and time(s) and we will do the rest!
