Growing up in south Louisiana, Trent had an early fascination with taking photographs and the feeling of nostalgia that came from looking at photographic prints of family members and memories captured on film. Trent considers it an absolute honor to create images and preserve a legacy for newlyweds that will be passed down for generations to come.
After meeting Trent at the age of 16, studying Fashion and Apparel Design in college and getting married, Dara & Trent moved to New York to chase their dream of making a life together in Manhattan. Dara encouraged Trent to pursue his passion of taking photographs of people and in 2009 Trent Bailey Studio was founded. In addition to working with Trent at the studio, Dara is the designer of Preston & Olivia making beautiful hats, hair and bridal accessories.
Mark resides in Brooklyn by way of Minnesota with his girlfriend and dog. Before moving to New York, Mark received his BFA in photography. After working along with Trent & Dara for many years on weddings and editorial shoots, Mark is now photographing weddings as an associate photographer for the studio.
