Laura and David Trumbo Owners Trumbo Photography



We live in Waterford, MI. If we're not home, we are probably in another country or a place with lots of mosquitos and poison ivy.

We celebrate kindness, authenticity, creativity, imperfections, out of the box thinking, and most national holidays.

We are grateful to be invited into our clients lives, to tell their stories, and have fun while doing so!

Our work includes wedding and senior photography, as well as family portraits. Our photography is full service. This means we deliver more than digital images. We deliver heirloom quality albums for generations to cherish and awesome art prints for you to proudly display in your home.


We love helping you along with planning your experience. We can wrangle large groups for wedding parties, and are happy to help you find the perfect location for your session.

We take pride in helping even the most camera-shy people feel beautiful, comfortable, and at ease. We do so by building a strong connection and friendships with our clients along the way!

We share the common goal of making you feel as important as you are. We believe that beauty comes in all ages, colors, shapes, and sizes.

Our photography reflects our relaxed, fun-loving attitude and our love of people. More importantly, it reflects who you are.



Anything that has to do with being outdoors.

Living in a place where we can hear a train whistle at night.

Living in a place with woods in your backyard and near a gob of lakes.

Camping. It's one of our favorite things to do together. We have been known to throw up a tent in our backyard if we can't find the time to travel somewhere.


Garage sale pit stops. It's especially fun when you take the time to chat with the other "customers".

Our three amazing and beautiful daughters!

Ice cream. It's an event that happens in our living room almost every night. Chocolate is best. Our opinions differ as to whether or not marshmallows belong in ice cream.

Dance parties in the kitchen.

Music. It's almost always on at our house. Listening to music from exotic places makes us feel like we're on vacation. Sometimes you just have to tango.

Hot dates. (Which are sometimes at Home Goods.)

Fishing. Early in the morning with coffee, at sunset with wine. Laura prefers using worms.

Cooking good dinners together. Especially if it involves grilling or smoking or cheese.

Laughing. Until it hurts.

Family. We are both the babies of big crazy families and we wouldn't have it any other way.

Travel. We travel not to escape life, but so that life doesn't escape us. And we travel as often as we can.

God. Gotta have Him daily.




David went to Catholic school and served as altar boy. He was a curious altar boy and once "accidentally" put too much incense in the thurible. There was much coughing and he describes the haze as something you would see at a heavy metal concert. He still got to go to the end of the year field trip at Boblo Island.

Laura's childhood found her spending a lot of time down at the train tracks. Her Mother told her not to be hanging around down there because it was where the Boogyman lived. She was once inside a boxcar to collect little metal strips that she crafted into whistles. The train started moving. Paralyzed with panic she didn't jump out until it had some speed going. She sprained her ankle in the jump. She never told her Mother how the injury transpired.
