July 25 wedding at the Black Forest Bed & Breakfast

This past weekend we finally got to meet our bride & groom who've spent the last year in Iraq and photograph their fun wedding at the Black Forest Bed & Breakfast just east of Colorado Springs.


Even though we'd never met Misty and Arron, they were excited to have Image Factory photograph their wedding based on reputation and images we've shown through blog posts like this! We knew it was going to be a great wedding and that they'd be well taken care of knowing they were working with TC from Muse Events and Laura from Biscuits and Berries catering!

We started out planning on an intimate outdoor ceremony alongside the pine trees with Pike's Peak in the background:




Plans were changed by one of our Colorado afternoon thunderstorms so TC, Laura and the crew quickly changed up and brought the ceremony under the pavilion where Misty and Arron had a short sand ceremony.


Everyone was ready to party so we did some quick portraits and took the party inside, where they were treated to a mouth-watering menu from Biscuits and Berries: Durango Honey-Tea Grilled Red Bird Chicken Satays, Coleman Ranch Black Pepper Bistro Sirloin and Roasted Chipotle Chicken to name just a few items!



We had a great time partying the night away with Misty and Arron -- here are a few more of our favorites:








Were these guys ready to party or what?


The clouds never lifted from the peak but we got treated to a glowing sunset, perfect for this last portrait:


We had a great time and can't wait to show off an awesome album with even more incredible details, fun moments and great memories!

PTC Dance Alumni

Last month when we photographed 'Swan Lake' for the Peachtree City School of Dance, we did a very special photo session for the alumni who had gone on to college but returned for a special performance in the recital.

I've been photographing the dancers here for several years so it's fun to watch them get better and better each year and as they get older they take on more parts and get to dance some of the really spectacular parts of the performance.

We had a great time, playing with a bunch of poses, jumping over each other...oops, they taught's called 'grand jete!' and just generally goofing off in front of the camera. Below is a slide show of our session and a few of my favorite images:
