Photos by Clay

I’m originally from Brazil and have been living in the USA for over 20 years now. In Brazil, I was a fitness guy who owned my own fitness center but was working way too many hours. One day I decided to change my life, sold everything I had, and moved to this country to pursue a degree in Computer Science. Yeah… go figure!
Today, I’m the main photographer behind Photos by Clay.

But who are Photos by Clay?
We are a husband and wife (Dani, short for Daniela), team based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. We photograph weddings all across the country and have some destination weddings under our belt.

Dani is the main face of our business. With her beautiful contagious smile and positive attitude, she will get you up and running in no time.
We both believe that transparency, good communication, and images that blow our clients’ socks off, are the perfect combination for a successful business. And that’s what we do.
We’re not boring. We’re not conventional. We’re not cookie cutters. We have a different style of photography and are not afraid to push our limits as far as creativity goes.

We also understand the magnitude of your wedding day. It’s probably the most special day of your life and we want to provide you with the best experience ever!

We are storytellers and want to tell your story the most beautiful way someone could tell it.
