Cedars Camps – best place ever!

Hail to Cedars, symbol of life! There is a fantastic camp in the middle of the Ozarks in Missouri called Cedars Camps. This camp has a special place in my heart because it’s where my husband and I met! His parents met there as well. So for our anniversary this year we went back to the place where it all began. There have been a lot of changes through the years, but it’s still a beautiful place. I hope these photos can share just a glimpse of the beauty that is Cedars.

Happy Birthday to Defy!

This past weekend was the anniversary of our company becoming an LLC! We’ve posted a lot of pictures through the years of your weddings and families, so we thought since it was our weekend, we could share some fun pictures of us! We went to a local creek to take pictures of each other with our significant others. We had a lot of fun climbing rocks, splashing in the water and hiking trails. It’s been fun to watch our business grow, and we are look forward to our continued growth both in the metro-Atlanta area and beyond. Thank you to all our family and friends who have supported us through the years. Your love and support mean the world to us.

An Afternoon of Glamour

This past spring Defy Photography partnered up with an independent beauty consultant from Mary Kay to provide an afternoon of glamour for women on a college campus. The participants spent time getting all dolled up with Mary Kay, and then had a portrait session with us. These girls were fun and sassy, and we loved seeing their own personality pop through their pictures!

Flat Stanley’s Day Out

Defy Photography got its first Flat Stanley in the mail recently. For those who don’t know, Flat Stanley is a school project where a young child sends a paper cut out of a man (Stanley) to people all over the country and learns a little about every place he goes. We took him to the Georgia Aquarium, Johnny Rockets for lunch, and then to play at the Centennial Olympic Park.
