  • Where to begin with Clay and Dani! My husband and I met Clay and Dani through our venue Bella Collina. Prior to our meeting I was incredibly intimidated by his photography style but was intrigued enough to ask them to come for an interview at our venue. Through the interview process and beyond, Clay and Dani knocked it out of the park. There are many talented photographers out there but with Dani and Clay you really are getting something special. They are some of the most compassionate and passionate people you will ever meet and we are so fortunate to have met them. They truly are a dynamic duo in terms of photography talent and business. The day of our engagement shoot - the weather was nonstop rain. There was a moment a torrential downpour started and I thought we would all run for cover but Clay crouched down (without cover!) and took extraordinary shots. He never ceases to impress me with his ability to find the best photo opportunities regardless of the circumstances. Fr... Read more

    Charmaine, it's Dani here Oh my world... I am in tears here reading your sweet and so thoughtful words. My tears remind me of your wedding day, when we captured so many people crying of happiness and joy seeing both of you getting married. But what makes me cry is to see that all our goals to have the 100% client satisfaction, and our efforts to make things happen are worth it. We are not perfect, but we always have the best intentions and we go above and beyond to always see the smile on our clients faces. I can't thank God enough to have put you and Michael in our way. I can't thank Bella Collina enough as well for having us as their preferred vendor. I can't thank you guys enough for trusting us and for all the love that we feel coming back to us. Love you guys! Can't wait to see you soon when we deliver your wall arts! Dani & Clay

  • I've known Clay and Dani by reputation and I have admired their work for several years but it was only recently that I had the privilege (yes, privilege!) of working with them. Based on my 25 years of experience as an ordained minister and officiant, I have rarely encountered such a combination of consummate professionalism and outstanding interpersonal skills. While the choice of photographic style is a matter of taste and personal preference, in my opinion their work is always stunning and captures the very essence of a couple's wedding day. Most importantly, they are kind, warm personable and caring and willing to do whatever it takes to capture every moment of their couples' special day in the most captivating and artistic way possible. Clay and Dani have far exceeded even my very lofty expectations of their work. Get in line and book them NOW!

    Thank you so much Kevin! It was really a blessing to part of this wedding. And I've never seen such a happy bride during her ceremony with you as her officiant! We definitely were happy to register those moments. We can't wait to work with you again as well. We are looking forward to many more moments like that!

  • If your looking for a Photographer-photobyclaync-Clay and Dani - should be your only choice. I just finished looking at the beautiful pictures of my daughter and son-in-laws wedding in Feb. It took me 2 sitting to be able to see them without crying. They captured the day with such ease and friendliness they felt like family. From engagement pics, bridal portraits, and wedding day start to finish. So many pictures we will be able to re live the day for years to come. Thanks Clay and Dani was great to meet you both.

    Arleen M. Peterson, thank you very much! We have no words to say how much we love the connection we created with your daughter and son-in-law and with you as well together with the whole family and friends. It was a perfect wedding day and we are grateful to be chosen to document such precious moments!

  • This February Photosbyclaync photographed my sons wedding in Raleigh, NC. Dani & Clay were marvelous in putting the bride, the groom and the bridal party at ease throughout the event. They moved around effortlessly and captured memories we will cherrish forever. They were sensitive to and respectful of the people involved in all aspects of this event. They worked their magic in spite of the wintery weather we experienced on the day of the wedding. They showed patience and talent in getting the flower girls and ring bearer to smile especially in group settings. After reviewing the entire bridal/wedding shoot, I am having a challenging time to choose the highlights for my album. There is no doubt that Dani & Clay have captured the radiant essence of the bride and the debonair charm of the groom from every angle and lighting condition. I would sincerely recommend “photosbyclaync” as photographers who succeed in capturing the ’Special moments’ of the bride, the groom, the we... Read more

    Thank you so much Kit! Since the first moment we met you and Angelo at the rehearsal dinner of your son's wedding we knew it was going to be an even more special wedding to us. And we were right. The love and support we received from you and Angelo were incredible! Other than loving documenting weddings we love this kind of connection we create with our couples and their families. Thank you!!!

  • Photos By Clay is an excellent husband and wife photography duo! They do a great job of working together to get the most amazing shots. I am a wedding planner who had the privilege of working with this couple and I loved every minute of it! Clay and Dani made sure they were familiar with the venue before the wedding day and even came to the rehearsal to be familiar with the flow of the ceremony. They arrived the day of the wedding ready to go and knew exactly what shots they wanted to capture. They followed the timeline to a tee while being able to capture everything the bride and groom desired! I am impressed with their dedication to the couples they work with, responsiveness to other vendors and love for what they do. I can't wait to work with them again!

  • Clay and Dani were awesome, and we are so glad we selected them to capture our special moments. Their experience, deep knowledge of photography & lighting, and likable personalities made for a very memorable and enjoyable experience. I knew the photos would be great long before the wedding was over! I highly recommend!

  • Clay and Dani were an amazing team who made a wonderful addition to the day! I partnered with them in celebrating a couple and they were integral to the success of the day. I don't know that I ever saw them take a break because they were always on their feet capturing not just the couple, but their guests and loved ones in a number of candid situations! They were looking for shots all night and were incredibly dedicated to catching the bride and groom! I cannot wait to see how amazing their shots look because they worked so hard on the wedding day and it showed! I cannot wait to party with them again very soon, and would happily recommend them to anyone looking for committed professional photographers.

  • Passionate photographer with attention to detail and above all they develop a personal relationship with the couple and parents. Clay and Dani are not just photographers, their photos will show you like a video all what you missed at the wedding because of all that is going on. What most touched me was that Clay helped my son Michael get ready as he was running behind. Unfortunately, his father is not in his life so this made me cry when Michael shared this with me. Dani also brought Charmaine a gift at the interview and then when we went to see the photos there was champagne and these delicious Brazilian cheese bread appetizers. I think of them as part of our family now because they spent nine plus hours with us on the wedding day as well as for the engagement shoot. You will get more than what you paid for when you hire with PhotosByClay.

  • Clay and Dani - where to begin!! We went to the Bridal Show January 2019. Our goal for the day was find a photographer and DJ. The bridal show was very hectic. When we stopped at Clay and Dani’s booth - we spoke with them for about 5-10 minutes. In those minutes we never once discussed their services or pricing - Clay wanted to hear our story. How we met/engagement/ plans so far. That, in addition to their amazing personalities, made us choose Photos by Clay. With the welcoming feeling we had from them, not to mention their affordable pricing - they were our first choice. I feel like Clay and Dani were a part of our family. We got engagement photos, bridal portraits and wedding photos. The photos we have are truly a treasure to forever remember our amazing day. I would highly recommend this amazing team!! If we ever have a need for a photographer in the future they will be our first choice!

    We are so thankful to you both for choosing us to be your wedding photographer. We are blessed to have met you and we felt so welcomed and comfortable with your entire family and friends who were so nice to us since the day before at the rehearsal and dinner until the last minute of the wedding day. We really appreciate your lovely words. Can't wait for our next adventure together :)

  • We hired Clay and Dani to photograph our December wedding. While speaking to Clay over the phone I could tell he immediately knew what we were wanting. Their professionalism is above par. They captured every moment of event and their work is captivating. If you review the pictures on their website you will see examples of the excellent work. What you don’t see is their charming personality, which literally is the icing on the cake! I would HIGHLY recommend them for any event. I’m so glad I was able to witness their talent first hand!

    Thank you so much, Renee! It was such a great honor to register this important moment of your lives. We loved everything about your special day! It was so happy and beautiful!

  • When I started the journey of wedding planning I said that the one thing I would NOT play around with would be the photography. I searched and looked.. actually stumbled across Photos by Clay but having looked through some of the pictures I said to myself this guy is amazingggggggggg there’s no way I could afford that.. a few months later my daughters gramma brought up the name again and I said to myself let me just check it out and Wow am I glad I did! This husband/wife duo was soooo patient with us and made us feel so comfortable during our engagement/wedding. They are sooo thorough and will keep going until they get the perfect images! Tonight we had our photo reveal and I was blown away at our images! Me and Clay want to thank y’all so much for your passion and for giving us the gift of these amazing images! We will be sharing the images soon!💕 if y’all need a wedding photographer this is IT!
