Meet Our Team

Clay Vaughan

C.E.O. & Founder

For over 15 years, I have passionately produced films filled with meaning and beauty. Growing up in a Christian family in northwest Houston, I learned the importance of working hard and doing the right thing, regardless of the cost. That drive, paired with my education in film production and marketing, has allowed me to craft stories that are not only visually stunning but carefully designed to highlight the best in people. I am thrilled that God has allowed me to pursue my passion and lead the Reverent team to care for thousands of couples over the years, telling their story for the glory of God!

I grew up in Houston, and was always encouraged to pursue my creativity; I thought that I was going to focus on live production, but God had other plans. Still working through college, with the goal of being debt-free once I graduate. I am grateful to be able to use my creativity while having the time and ability to work through school.
