"Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing at all."

 

WHO

My name is Clayton. I'm a nerd, an artist, and a romantic; and I'd love to be your wedding photographer!

Things I love...

  1. Weddings (It's why I do what I do!)
  2. Games (Video: Clash Royale, Bioshock, Mario Kart; Board: Munchkin, Wolf Bite, Monopoly)
  3. Beer and Cocktails (IPAs and anything with bourbon!)
  4. Owls (So majestic yet endearing.)
  5. Making People Laugh (I'm an idiot)
  6. YouTube (Phillip DeFranco, H3H3, Vox, Joe Rogan, Game Theory)
  7. TV (Game of Thrones, American Horror Story, and RuPaul's Drag Race)

WHAT

I tell stories with emotional artistry, I make photographs and films that move people, and I have a lot of fun doing it!

Your wedding is going to be incredible and with Lux Everlasting your story will be told beautifully.

HOW

Memories are about your moments together. I photograph you in those moments beautifully and authentically. I ensure everyone is comfortable and enjoying themselves because that's what makes for the best images!

It's all about creating a luxurious, relaxed, and fun experience!

WHERE

Currently based out of Dayton, Ohio, my future husband and I are following our hearts and dreams to Chicago early 2018!

That said, I'll go anywhere for love! We love to travel, and are always looking that new adventure.

Clayton captured such beautiful moments from our big day that we will now be able to relive the rest of our lives. Hands down best experience I could have ever wished for with a photographer!
