Mary Clayton Carl Jones has wanderlust and a big appetite for life. After graduating from the New College at the University of Alabama, she interned at Harper’s Bazaar in Paris where she developed a passion for eating well, a knack for pristine entertaining and a keen eye for the premiere fashion world.

Her inner hostess continued to thrive back in the United States, where her work with a commercial photographer and career as a stylist brought her a vast portfolio of experiences – from castings to prop procurement, and dressing the set.

The publishing industry drew her back south, where she had the opportunity to work with a start up magazine in New Orleans. She went on to work for Food Network’s star Sandra Lee, as full time photo stylist for her magazine, Sandra Lee.

She has since collaborated on productions, music festivals, videos, and photo shoots for Garden & Gun, Southern Living, Blackberry Farm, Cooking Light, Coastal Living, DELTA, Biltmore Wine Company, AARP, Real Simple, Country Living, LODGE, MilkLife, Publix, Oxmoor House publishing, Hoffman Media, Kimberly Schlapman’s Oh Gussie! Cookbook and more. This Southern-born stylist is owner of Prop Shop South, has produced pop-up shops, and styled everything from large scale events to artist's green rooms and tents.


Paul dug his hands deep into the art industry back in the mid 1990s, where he began as a creative intern, and has since designed his way through video games, cartoons, photography, and video production. He served as art director at CBS, where he eventually moved to Austin to start his own production company, creating content for an impressive lineup of brands and personalities including Levi’s, Red Bull, Russel Crowe, Nike, AKQA, and many more.

It was his most recent literary project, Know Thy Farmer – a creative compilation that chronicles the lives of Alabama’s hardest-working farmers - that brought him back to Birmingham two years ago for a series of photo shoots. It was there that he bumped into Mary Clayton, rekindling a new history and romance together as creative accomplices and partners.

If not traveling for work or seeking out new wares, Mary Clayton and Paul can be found splitting their time between Birmingham, AL and the shores of pristine Lake Martin with an elegantly rustic meal, a bottle (or two) of good wine, and their sweet beagle.
