Straight from the Horse’s Mouth

Some of you may or may not know that I love horses. I used to teach lessons and run riding programs for high schoolers at a summer camp. I loved it! I’ve been missing it lately, so here’s my collection of favorite pictures from the camp. Riding was something I never thought I’d do, and it brought me such joy. You form a bond with your horse; he perks up when he sees you, almost smiles when you take him for a ride. It is this bond with a very special horse I am missing these days.

California Wedding Weekend

It’s great being able to photograph your friend’s wedding! It was lovely being able to witness the love between the bride and groom. The wedding took place outside next to a running brook and sequoia trees. There were personalized touches, like hand-made wrapping paper at the rehearsal dinner, and hand-made jewelry for the bridesmaids!

And Two Become One

Samantha Howard Photography is merging with Pagett Photography to create a new head company in Marietta, Georgia. Our new company name will be Defy Photography. Our headquarters will be in Georgia but we will still be servicing the metro-St. Louis area, as well as cities in Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Tennessee, Texas and anywhere else in the USA. Thank you so much for your patience while we rework our companies. We will be keeping our old websites for portfolio and marketing purposes. All email addresses and phone numbers will still work for contacting purposes. We look forward to working with you again soon!

Feel the Flow

I really enjoy taking artistic photographs. Pictures of ordinary things in a new, unique way. I’ve never been a real artsy person, so it’s wonderful to find a new outlet. If there was some way I could just walk around take pictures as I feel them, and make a living off of it, that would be a dream!
