My name is Clay, and I have been a photographer since 2015. I started my career in photography as a concert photographer and slowly started moving into family photography. I enjoyed doing family photography so much I started taking on weddings. In late 2019, I started doing weddings and family photography exclusively. I enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and the good vibes around weddings.
