The Talent Factory dancers

For the last few years I've had a lot of fun photographing all the great young dancers from The Talent Factory in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. Dana Adames and her staff are such nice people to work with and watching their students become better dancers year after year is a treat. This year we tried something different with the Senior Company and I got to be a bit more creative. Here's five of my favorites:

Kara and John had a gorgeous summer day for their blast of a wedding. After their great engagement session in April I had a feeling their wedding would be a ton of fun and I certainly wasn't disappointed. Everyone in the wedding party from groomsmen to family were great to photograph and just being around. I think the first photo below, which are the garters Kara chose, show the great sense of fun that was this wedding.

As a photographer I always love an outdoor ceremony, but there is also something very classic and powerful about a church wedding.

Nothing like having a large white pickup truck show up to drive the bride and men to the reception.

It was a beautiful first dance, and then the real fun got started. Thanks very much, Kara and John!

This season is getting busier and busier every day. Here are a few photos from the last day of May with a wonderfully nice couple having a great day together. It was a great way to bring in June.

Pamela and Justin had the most gorgeous day for a wedding on the docks in the marina. Blue, blue sky, with some slight wispy clouds and pretty boats sailing by. In this small sampler here I've started out with the flower girl, because they're always so cute, and move on to The Kiss, some of the day's great formals and the First Dance.

Angela and Neil are getting married at OceanCliff on July 10th and after debating a bit about where and when we decided upon early morning at Beavertail State Park in Jamestown for their engagement session. We couldn't have had a more beautiful morning for a very relaxed session with a very natural couple. Angela was perfectly game for rock climbing as well. I've edited some dramatic landscapes for this entry.
