We love babies! Maybe more so now because one of the owners of Defy is about to be a mommy… In any case, we jumped at the opportunity to photograph this sweet one in St. Louis. She was such a sweetheart and did a great job during our shoot. My favorite part was when she got fussy, her loving parents sang a hymn to help calm her down. It made for a sweet photo op. Congratulations to these new parents on their bundle of joy!
Since we have a lot of friends and clients in the St. Louis area, we always have families who are willing to house us. Several years ago, to show our gratitude, we took some business headshots for a friend who houses us the most. She works in real estate and wanted some pictures for her business cards. Her husband now works with her so during our last trip up north, we were able to not only get some shots of him, but of the two of them together. They are such a fun couple and we were happy to find a way to pay them back for their selflessness.
These were from the first photo shoot 2 years ago.
She was happy to have her husband join her behind the lens a few months ago.
This bride and groom had big plans on their wedding day for where they wanted to take pictures. The plan was to go to their favorite places around St. Louis and get a lot of outdoor shots. Well, Mother Nature had different plans. It rained. So, we showed up for their 1st anniversary and went to all the places we didn’t get to go before! It was a lot of fun running around the city, and being able to see how much joy they had after their first year of wedded bliss.
With today’s society becoming more and more image driven, we are finding that a lot of business are having their employees put their photo on their business cards. We were able to provide some headshots for this St. Louis realtor! She told us she never enjoys taking photos, but she actually had fun with us! We enjoyed it too, and now her cards look great!
We love shooting in St. Louis’ Forest Park! This newly engaged couple had spunk, and charisma despite threatening rain. They were open to our fun photo ideas and a joy to work with. We look forward to the wedding in October.
Defy had the recent opportunity to photograph a professional dancer. Erin used to dance with SYREN Modern Dance in New York, but she has moved to the St. Louis area and needed new headshots. It was not only a joy to shoot her, but to be in the presence of such gentle grace.
