all about
Traci

Hey there! I'm Traci. I've been a wife for 17 years, a mom for 13 years, and a wedding photographer for 7 years. I am a former English teacher, and it's through my love of English that I grew to appreciate the STORY, more specifically, telling the story of your wedding day. I love my incredible husband and family, brussels sprouts, Shaun T, ice cream, Hulu, and my cockapoo, Crosby. When I'm not behind my camera, you can find me cheering for my daughter at gymnastics meets, encouraging my son with his homework, walking the streets of my small town, or let's be honest... doing laundry!

all about troy

Hello! I'm Troy. Aside from photographing weddings on weekends, I also work as a mental health therapist in private practice. Much about these two worlds is different, but the commonality they share is what I enjoy the most - engaging others' stories. At weddings, I document the story in images, and in therapy, well...that's confidential. I’ve been married for 13 years and my wife and I have three delightful kids. When I'm not working or spending time with my family, I enjoy watching youtube videos about woodworking, obsessing over the Ohio State Buckeyes, eating spoonfuls of peanut butter, keeping up with Tony Horton and Shaun T, or consuming podcasts or documentaries about philosophy, food and health, psychology, sustainability, theology, economics, systemic oppression, science, or politics, to name a few. I've also developed the pretentious affinity for a light roasted pour-over.

about us

Troy and I are the only kids in our immediate family, and we always got along. I distinctly remember our mom saying “Traci and Troy never fight” when friends would comment on our demeanor. I think it was a self-fulfilled prophecy; she said it so much that we didn’t have a choice! 

His interest in photography started before mine. When he backpacked through Europe after college, he used his old Canon Elan II, played with shutter speed with cars driving past the Arc de Triomphe and experimented with exposure while photographing the Eiffel Tower at night. I remember loving the photos.
     Fast forward a few years, and I’m a typical mom with a camera. I saw a friend find success as a mom and photographer and was intrigued. Soon I was smitten with the art form. It wasn’t long before I owned a Canon Rebel, two lenses, and officially started Traci Falder Photography.
     Troy lived in Seattle and was finishing a degree in Mental Health Counseling. After he completed school, I tempted him to move closer with the idea of joining my photography business. 
     I manage the business every day while Troy works full time at his private mental health practice. On the weekends, we join forces to create beautiful images for our couples. I love that we can share this business together. I love Troy’s gentleness when dealing with people and his fun-loving nature with everyone he encounters. And I love the “presents” I get to open after every wedding when I see his stunning, creative images.
     At the end of the day, we’re different people with different strengths, but our parents instilled in us to love people, to value authenticity, and to always give our best to others. We love bringing our family to yours.
