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.
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 & Dara -- they are amazing!!
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!
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!
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!!
