Dara and Trent just have a way with imagery...their photographs are romantic and ethereal while being so fashion centric and editorial. I am in love.

Trent Bailey is on every list of top NY wedding vendors for a reason-- he is fantastically talented, a consummate professional, and a wonderful person! My husband and I met Trent because he was the photographer at a close friend's wedding. We were drawn to his photos because Trent has a keen eye for capturing candid, intimate, real moments, as opposed to simply snapping posed portraits. We considered other photographers before deciding to work with him, but no one could top his beautiful work. Trent and his wife Dara took great interest in us as a couple and were focused on learning what was most important to us about our wedding. Well in advance of our Big Day, Trent did a lovely engagement photo shoot for us so that we would get to know each other better and have beautiful photos to use for our wedding website. I loved Trent and his wife Dara so much that I ended up purchasing my wedding veil from Dara, who is also a talented milliner. On our wedding day, Trent and Dara were absolutely wonderful. They brought a spirited but relaxed energy to their work, and moved effortlessly through the day, capturing our most important moments organically. Trent did plenty of advanced planning to make sure we could shoot our First Look, family portaits, and other shots exactly where we wanted to, and he had plenty of backup options ready in case of rain! Our other vendors, particularly our videographer, loved working with them. Most important, of course, was the final product of Trent and Dara's efforts. We received our wedding photos just two weeks after the event, and they were more beautiful than we could have imagined! Superb quality, striking use of color and texture, and countless, priceless shots of the most important moments from our wedding. The mixture of color and black and white photography was just perfect. The Big Day flew by, just as everyone tells you it will. But thanks to Trent, we will get to keep it forever! We couldn't recommend him more.

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!!

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!

Trent and Dara are really, truly amazing. They genuinely love what they do, and this, without fail, resonates in the photographs they take. Throughout our 22-month engagement and thereafter, they have been consistently patient, accommodating, and always full of fresh ideas. Most importantly, on our wedding day, they were a seamless duo - carrying out all of our intentions flawlessly. Our wedding portraits and super 8 film captured the love that Jason and I share and we will cherish them for years to come.

Trent and Dara have an ability to capture a moment with such beauty, honesty, and style that I cannot say in enough words how pleased we are with our wedding photos. I was initially taken with their keen sense of light and their modern eye, and as I got to work with them I found that they are not only extremely talented photographers, but also professional, easy to work with, and clear in their communication. I couldn't have asked for more-- it was such a joy to work with them!
When we first started looking for photographers for our wedding, we weren't sure exactly how to articulate what we wanted. We wanted a feeling and we would know it when we saw it. So we began our search on the internet and looked at what seemed like hundreds of website and portfolios. But not until we happened upon Trent did we find that "feeling" we were looking for. There is an intimacy, an ethereal lightness of his work that connected with my husband and I. We chose a location for our wedding where we felt on top of the world and spiritually connected. It was obvious that Trent would be the person who would be able to fully capture this. And he did, along with his wife Dara. The pictures are more than gorgeous and emote the happiness that everyone who attended the festivities felt. The day was a dream and every time I look at our album, Trent and Dara are able to bring me back there.
