Professional wedding photographs for outdoor lovers...and dog lovers, even better! Trailing Twine Photography specializes in photographing genuine, authentic moments of lovers in outdoor spaces like farms, barns, fields, vineyards, gardens, estates, and even woodsy campgrounds where you want to end the night with a roasty campfire time with your besties. Let's pick a time and place to talk about your photography over a mocha latte or glass of wine and some food. I'd love to get to know you more, to plan a unique photo session that will mesh with your personalities and lifestyle. Calm and collected moments, or wild and crazy candid shots?
My name is Ling Messer. I live in Woodstock, Connecticut, and love the creativity, business, and hustle of a wedding photographer. I'm a farm girl at heart and love the rural life. I live and breathe country (quite literally!). When I'm not shooting a wedding, find me on a farm, in a coffee shop, or hanging out with friends. When you book with me, I work with you to explore location possibilities to create the look we want. My secret list of spots include public and private areas that I have access to, or can obtain a property release for photography. Be you. Be wild. Be adventurous. Show off the time of your life!
I primarily shoot weddings documentary style--which means I will be taking as many images as I can to cover your wedding as much as possible. Lots of candids! Imagine these in something like a leather or wood wedding album. For wedding party images, I like to see the group as elegant and peaceful, and then from random and goofy. When I photograph the bride and groom, I always have pre-visualized spots that I've already decided upon before the wedding, where Mr. and Mrs. just have a few moments together by themselves, with a few directed poses. Sometimes, especially for nighttime images, I like to add some pretty lighting effects.
Trailing Twine Photography: Tying the knot with a photographer who loves the country, laid-back people, and rustic chic weddings as much as you do, would be amazums.

We luckily met Ling through a family member and from the start she was very quick to respond and overall super friendly! We knew right away we wanted to book her for our wedding!! For our mini engagement session she gave us numerous helpful tips that eased us for our big day. The photos came out beautiful and we are now more comfortable and excited for our wedding day photos!

We stumbled onto Ling thanks to a Facebook ad/suggested post, sadly after we had already booked a photographer for our wedding because as soon as I saw Ling's work I knew she was exactly what I wanted and needed in a photographer. So instead of completely missing out, we booked Ling for our engagement photos. After filling out her survey, she had the PERFECT location. We met Ling and her husband on a Sunday afternoon (we wanted sunset photos) and what I thought was going to be awkward turned out to be a blast. My now husband and I had SO. MUCH. FUN. throughout our entire shoot. It felt natural and the photos that resulted from that session are STUNNING. I can't pick a favorite, I love them all and Ling made us look like models. Well worth the money and now we have photos we will cherish for ever. She has a talent for capturing your personalities and how you interact as a couple. Her photos capture the moment, they aren't a bunch of staged photos... which results in truly remarkable images that celebrate you and your partner (and your dog if you bring them along like we did).Sent on 12/16/2017
Do yourself a favor and if Ling's style speaks to you, stop looking and contact her, and if she's got your date free BOOK HER. You won't regret it. I really wish she was there on our wedding day, but I'm so thankful we made room in our budget for a session with her.

Ling was a perfect match from the beginning and we can not thank her enough for all the extra time and effort she put into to getting to know us as a couple and making sure that the memories we made we captured in all the photos. We were lucky enough to book Ling for an engagement, wedding day and after wedding shoot which makes the selection of photos extra difficult because they are all so special!
If you are looking for a Photojournalistic photographer, Ling is your girl! She has this amazing ability to capture pictures and moments that are true to the day and what is going on. Looking back on all our photos we are truly able to relive the day and everything that happened.
Ling went out of her way in every single aspect of the process and made it easier to know she had everything under control~
Make sure to check out all her pictures on the website!!!!
Ling is a true professional, caring deeply for her clients and her craft. She is constantly developing herself and her craft, seeking out topnotch training, equipment, and skills. She is invested in work and her brand, and I have been impressed with Ling from the moment I met her. She is awesome to work with, for, and alongside in the industry.
