Troup's Studio

Founded in 1932 by H.O. and Addie Lee Troup under the name Troup's Photo Service, Inc., Troup's Studio began as a nation-wide photo-finishing operation, taking in, processing, and sending out (in the same day, no less!) 400 to 700 rolls of film. Taking the reigns after his father's passing, Robert (Bob) Troup, along with wife Betty, made strides in business diversification that brought Troup's into prominence. Today, Troup's proudly serves Northeast Georgia as one of the most well known and respected portrait studios around with a complete professional lab, housing state-of-the-art digital printing equipment.

Third generation family owners Patti Troup Joiner and Harry Joiner, CPP have spent the past quarter century developing a timeless style of portraiture, specializing in newborns, children, families, seniors and weddings. Many of the aspects of Troup's children's portraiture have become a tradition for generations of our customers. Patti and Harry work together with every child and have developed a unique style that gives their little clients an atmosphere of warmth and fun in the portrait sessions. As a child develops from infancy through adolescence they respond differently and it takes someone with the skill to recognize the needs of the child in order to capture the essence of their personality at each stage of their life. Patti and Harry have mastered a technique that helps each child feel relaxed and loved; and this helps the duo create images that reveal the inward beauty of each little face they photograph.

Good senior photography calls for one simple, but important rule...

Keep it up-to-date! Troup's is committed to following modern trends in senior posing and props. Several group excursions are scheduled to nearby location "hot spots" during the summer before that highly anticipated "senior" year. These up-and-coming adults want fun and spontaneity and Troup's is there to provide just that!

Diversification has been a key factor in the long life of Troup's Studio. One of their many offerings to the public is in the copy and restoration of photographs, old and new. Troup's has been restoring those portrait treasures since our love for nostalgia began! With the advent of nothing short of "digital miracles" , Troup's can make that old treasure look like new (without removing the "old fashioned" look of course!). And speaking of trip to downtown Toccoa would be complete without exploring some of the many gift ideas available at Troup's Hallmark and Gifts, adjacent to the portrait studio.

Last, but certainly not least, in keeping with a reputation as a "one stop shop", Troup's Custom Framing can give your portrait or artwork the presentation it deserves with one of among hundreds of framing designs.

Through the years, Troup's Studio has continued to keep the same goal in their sites... to offer customers a quality product at a great price...guaranteed!
