I can't express how important capturing this day was for me! My photogrpaher and videographer were my number one concern! Trent and Dara ended up being our choice of photographers for our 250 person wedding in Charleston, SC on Middleton place plantation! A truly stunning venue and Trent and Dara captured it all perfectly! Not only did they do a fantastic job with my family photos they also made the rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony and reception look just as beautiful as the day was to us! We were very pleased with the speed of their communication throughout the planning process and also with plan changes the day of the wedding due to rain and outdoor arrangements! How unique it is to find someone who will show up three hours early to capture pictures of your family friends and of you and your future husband outdoors without the umbrellas you would be holding a few hours later during the wedding!
I also have to say these two talented individuals made my husband and I feel so comfortable and loved throughout the whole process! We were blessed to find them and are still so thankful for the work they did for us two years ago!

It is no accident that Trent Bailey is so highly regarded among NY wedding vendors - he is simply the best!!! I used Trent and his wife Dara for both my engagement pictures and wedding pictures and could not have been happier with the results. When I was looking for a wedding photographer I knew I wanted two things - someone who would make us feel comfortable in front of the camera and someone who would capture moments that truly represented us as a couple rather than just staged/formal portraits. Trent has a keen eye for capturing those special, hidden moments whether its on the dance floor or even during the portrait sessions. Trent and Dara are such sweet people that you can't help but feel comfortable around them, which is so important when you want to capture pictures of you looking your best. The composition of his photographs is absolutely stunning - straight out of a magazine. I had many friends get married before me and I started to feel like all wedding photographs looked the same. Not Trent's!! His photographs are of a superior quality (even to someone like me, who doesn't know a ton about photography) and his ability to capture candid moments makes the photographs so unique and special. I also loved the photographs that came from his black and white camera - it was nice to have a combination of both. As for the wedding day, I had SO many comments about how great Trent and Dara were at arranging the family and wedding party portraits. I have never seen a weeding photographer move so quickly and efficiently while managing to keep everyone relaxed and having a great time! We did all of our pictures after the ceremony which can be rushed at times, but not with Trent and Dara. I honestly can't highly recommend Trent and Dara enough. Picking a wedding photographer is maybe the most important vendor selection you can make - you will have those photos displayed forever - and I couldn't be happier that I found and used the best!!

Trent Bailey and his amazing wife Dara did the most wonderful job with my wedding photos! From the moment we hired them we knew it was the best decision - while they truly are artists, they were still extremely efficient, organized and professional. They went over my timelines with a fine tooth comb, asking all the right questions to make sure everything I wanted was captured and didn't miss a beat.
They spent an entire weekend at my venue, capturing every moment I could have asked for and so much more! Trent always makes the mood so lighthearted and fun, and never pressures you to do anything that makes you uncomfortable. Dara has such a calming presence and was so sweet to have by my side all day. Both of them are so good at working with other vendors, communicating things to the bridal party and maintaining such a calm and pleasant demeanor even in the stressful moments! My venue is 500 acres and they still captured everything!! I don't know how they did it!! Their unique style of film made my photos look surreal, everyone in my family was in tears when they looked at them! I would recommend them to anyone and everyone who want the most gorgeous photos, and want someone they can rely on to work so hard for you on your special day. I learned the value of vendors who really go above and beyond and Trent Bailey is one of the best in the country by far!

My wife, and I could not ben happier happier working with Trent Bailey Photography for our wedding. Trent, and his wife Dara were above and beyond our already very high expectations. We were introduced to Trent by another couple who too very much enjoyed working with them. The duo were professional, helpful, and very talented. Not to mention they are also both so kind, and worked hard to be sure my wife and I were happy.
What else could you want to know? They were punctual, friendly, faded into the background when it was neccessary, and provided guidance/direction during our more formal shots. They're both fun, funny, and made the day that much more special. The pictures are stunning, were delivered quickly, and the albums they offer are beautiful.. Coming out of our wedding, my biggest advice is to work with a photographer you really enjoy -- besides your spouse, the photographers will be with you for the entire day. There is no one we would have wanted to work with besides Trent + Dara. Biggest thank you to you both!

My husband and I absolutely loved working with Trent and Dara. From the minute we met Trent and saw his fantastic portfolio, we knew he was our photographer. Trent is incredibly sweet and professional, and really put us at ease - at first, we didn't feel super natural in front of the camera during our engagement shoot, but Trent helped to bring us out of our shells. He and Dara were fantastic to have around at our wedding, too! They again made us so comfortable on the big day, which was really important to us. The photos came out terrifically! I 100% recommend working with Trent -- he is amazing!!

One of my bridesmaid's cousins had used Trent Bailey for her wedding, and they were highly recommended. Based on having a lower budget for my own wedding, we went with the other photographer who works for Trent and Dara, named Mark. I loved how Dara was very responsive to emails when we first started talking and trying to decide on a photographer and she was super friendly and helpful and wanted to know all the details and seemed so excited about my wedding, even when this is what she does all the time, she was still excited about my wedding. Mark was a great photographer, he got all the pictures I wanted of certain people, the flowers, setup of everything, etc, but then he was great at getting the candid pictures where you don't look posed. I personally hate posing for pictures and always think I look awkward in those ones so he was great at getting some amazing pictures while I was just hanging out with my husband or my bridesmaids, etc. We got the pictures back pretty quickly and there were so many it was hard to go through them and pick favorites but I like having the options. Also we were able to download all of the pictures so we can go back to them at any time and do what we want with them. Highly recommend Mark and Trent Bailey!

We could not have been happier working with Trent and Dara on our wedding day! Every meeting with Trent leading up to the wedding was so enjoyable, and he really kept us organized and on track with a schedule to ensure we captured all of the special moments, and so many more. Looking back on the day it is so hard to envision where Trent & Dara were capturing all these amazing photos, they really blended right into the party! They were so organized and just two incredibly nice and genuine humans. We never had to worry about any “diva personalities” you sometimes encounter when searching for the right wedding vendors!
We were so happy with how everything turned out, and constantly look back at the beautiful album that reminds us of such a special day. Thank you Trent & Dara!

From our very first meeting with Trent, he made us feel comfortable. He is easygoing, warm, and professional. On the day of our engagement shoot, it rained all morning and he kindly rescheduled it for a few days later, when we ended up having the most beautiful morning light. Neither of us are usually very comfortable in front of a camera, but Trent made the whole process feel natural and fun. We had an intimate civil ceremony on our rooftop in Brooklyn and Trent framed those shots beautifully and made creative suggestions without being pushy. We were thrilled with the photos, which captured the emotions of our special day and surpassed our expectations!

Trent and Dara were incredible at our remote Utah desert wedding! I cannot recommend them enough. My husband and I are big film photography hobbyists, so we especially appreciated the 9 different cameras (digital and film) that Trent and Dara used over two days for our wedding. What makes this team so unique is their ability to unobtrusively capture the "in the moment" shots, while also providing encouraging direction for portraits and editorial shots. We were pretty nervous about being in front (instead of behind) the camera, but Trent and Dara made us feel incredibly comfortable and confident and captured some epic photos. Several of our guests commented on how wonderful they were and how well they blended in with the vibe of our events. Thank you Dara and Trent! We'll have a hard time not printing a million photos and plastering them across our entire house.
