Traci Falder is a Central Indiana wedding photographer who strives to create timeless imagery that focuses on the wedding story and the people and details that make it so personal to you. She is a strong believer in the client-photographer relationship, and it is her hope that by the time your wedding day arrives, you see her as a dependable friend and not just a hired photographer. She adores fun-loving clients who value relationships and recognize the wedding day is only the beginning of a lifetime together!
So you're newly engaged and looking for a wedding photographer who creates imagery that's classy, genuine, modern, creative, and fun? Oh, you’re in just the right place, friend! I've photographed over 100 weddings for couples just like you! I'd love to tell you more...
Most days you'll find me in workout clothes with my hair in a bun and my favorite cockapoo curled at my feet! I'm in love with my husband, Mike, of 20 years and my kids, Jonah and Lydia, and I may just be a LITTLE obsessed with making lists, The Bachelor, ice cream, and TJ Maxx :)
I was inspired to start my business when I took my spirited first child to a portrait studio 14 years ago where he was expected to stand still and smile adorably on a narrow, tall block without falling off. I knew I could take better photos of him so I committed myself to learning the trade! Soon I was smitten with the art form. It wasn't long before I owned a Canon Rebel, two lenses, and officially started my business. I had a dream, and that dream changed my life.
How do you differentiate between the good, better, and best? My first boss always said that the “GOOD is the enemy to the BEST.” You may know a good photographer, but is he/she the BEST one for you?! Your photos are an heirloom so finding the BEST photographer to create your heirloom is invaluable!
I'd like to think of the photographer investment as a three-part process: planning, presence, and product. The wedding collection is simple. There are no hidden costs and digital files are always included. The collection includes:
- Eight consecutive hours of coverage
- Two photographers
- High resolution files in online gallery
- Engagement session with digital files
"I can confidently say that choosing Traci and Troy for our photography was the best decision we made while planning our wedding. They not only captured all of the important moments of the day, but they are also a blast to be around. As a bride, one thing I didn't realize before my wedding day is that your photographers actually run the show in regards to your timeline and making sure everyone is where they need to be. Traci kept the day organized and running smoothly and she did it with a smile. I don't have enough good things to say about her and Troy. I would recommend them to anyone."
"Throughout the entire day Traci & Troy were kind, hilarious, made us feel like we had all been friends for years, and were so organized. They took care of everything I had asked as well as things that completely slipped my mind. I could not have asked for a better wedding photographer experience! In fact, I consider Traci & Troy more like friends than my wedding photographers. I would recommend them to anyone!"
"Choosing Traci and Troy was one of the best decisions Luke and I made regarding our wedding day. From start to finish, Traci was there to help. Traci is organized, over-prepared, and creative. She is great at posing you to make you look great. She got both our engagement photos and wedding photos back promptly. Traci understands family dynamics and is great at taking control in group settings in a kind way. We loved having both her and her brother there for our big day and are overjoyed at how our photos turned out!"
"Traci and Troy were everything and more we could have hoped for from wedding photographers. They are a MUST vendor for your wedding. They were helpful throughout the entire process, always quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had. They made us comfortable and at ease throughout the entire process. The day of, they were organized and kept everything running smoothly. Not only did the photos turn out beautifully, we had them back in a timely manner. Overall, we had the best experience with this duo and wish we could do it all over again!"

Both Traci and Troy helped us feel at ease and we are in LOVE with all of our wedding photos. We highly recommend Traci and Troy to any couple looking for an amazing wedding photographer!"
"Book Traci & Troy for your wedding! They are the absolute BEST decision I made during wedding planning! They take timeless, elegant photos that don’t look over-edited and are truly heirloom quality. Traci is the ultimate professional and goes above and beyond to make her clients happy. When we were stressed with wedding planning, she sent us a care package and kind note in the mail to give us a smile. On the wedding day, Traci and Troy kept things light and fun regardless of weather, family dynamics, or other unforeseen circumstances. She got our wedding photos back to us in two weeks and I can’t stop looking at them because they are so breathtaking!"
"Traci and Troy did an amazing job as our photographers on such a beautiful day! I wanted people who were fun and creative but also professional. Whenever I was emailing with Traci, I felt like I was her only client! Traci also makes a point not to overbook herself, and this really shows in her work. The turnaround time to get our pictures back is the best I've seen!. They were also kind enough to recommend other vendors who ended up being part of our big day. Thank you both for being amazing to work with!"
"Our wedding photos were absolutely spectacular. Traci & Troy captured the essence of the joy we felt that day so perfectly. They were delightful to work with from start to finish and made us feel so comfortable throughout the day. They were kind, fun, flexible, and professional. We highly recommend them for their creativity, photography skills, and wonderful personalities!"
In years past, Troy, my brother, was an integral part of the wedding experience and my primary second shooter (You'll notice that all of our client reviews talk about Troy too). He has another full time job during the week so although he will still be involved in some weddings, his growing family is his first priority on weekends.
My dream clients are joyful and kind. They love people and love to laugh. Their wedding photos are important to them. They care about organization and the details of their wedding, but they also know that things might not always go as expected and know that it's okay!
Yes! All T&T weddings include a second shooter. I am fortunate to be a part of a network of wedding professionals and will hire a highly-trained wedding photographer to work with me on your wedding day. I believe second shooters are invaluable-- not just because of the added images they provide but also because it allows me to be in two places at once!
Because of my kids' ages and their sports and activities, I typically don't travel. I'm available for weddings in Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Lafayette, South Bend, and the surrounding areas.
