Red Rock Company tests athletic mettle with barn-burning feats of speed ranging from cycle races to triathlon competitions. Multiple divisions for many races encourage all genders and species to participate. Cyclists might go spoke-to-spoke through the Coconino and Kaibab National Forests during the Landis Cyclery Barn Burner 104 ($115 individual registration) or hit the pavement with the Four Peaks Brewing Urban Dirt Triathlon ($85 entry). Customers can also opt to compete in both the 1-mile swim and 5K run with the Top Banana registration ($50 registration, $70 day-of) or try a 2-mile standup paddleboard or paddle race ($35 registration, $45 day-of). The company also puts on Surftech RSP3 events, which include paddleboarding, running, and swimming races.
Photogenic helps immortalize weddings, proms, graduations, and other special events with its fun and easy-to-use photo booths. Rental of one of the company’s high-tech memory makers includes unlimited images shot against several different backgrounds as well as a treasure trove of props, and guests can view instant previews before the picture is taken to ensure a perfect pose each time. Photogenic can also customize backdrops to match the color or theme of any event, and can install a second monitor that plays a high-definition slideshow of the evening's images or photos of the booth on its most recent cruise.
Most memories of typical photo booths involve cramming into a small box and jockeying for space on its solitary bench. Ugly Duck Photo Booths instead employs an open air format, leaving ample space for friends and family to pose for memorable shots in front of a high-resolution camera. Not only does the booth provide plenty of space, but makes the process quick and easy—all guests have to do is pile in, push a button, and wait for the countdown until showtime. Plus, a personal attendant stands by to answer any questions or assess the accuracy of Richard Nixon impersonations. A customized backdrop and front panel, as well as a panoply of wacky props—such as feather boas and uncharacteristic hats—also help add to the memorability of events. Once the camera captures poses, a digital printer returns customized 4"x6" photo strips within just 20 seconds, letting partiers quickly see whether or not they need to correct their spelling of "YMCA" for the next go-around.
Families, babies, couples?even sassy garter belts. Belle En Blanc Photography's shutterbugs capture it all using high-quality cameras, a professional understanding of lighting, and expert editing software, resulting in images as stylish as they are personal. Every shot is imbued with the personality of its subjects. Brides and bridesmaids playfully mug for the lens, newly engaged duos share a private joke, infants nibble parents' noses, and sun hats strategically cover bare torsos in sensual boudoir images.
