Maryland Photographer and Makeup Artist

The Clark Bailey Team

Clark Bailey is a family business. When Troy and Kelley first met, they were both working individually in their respective fields. Troy was primarily shooting fashion and lifestyle and Kelley was establishing herself as the go to makeup artist for weddings and fashion. They were introduced to each other by a mutual friend and the rest as they say was history.

People often ask about the origin of the name “Clark Bailey”. Well, it’s pretty simple… while on their honeymoon, they started going over names for their future children and settle on Clark and Bailey. The business was named in honor of them and years later, Clark and Logan Bailey, still watch their parents do what they love to do.
