I met Amy over 2 years ago and photographed her engagement portraits, bridal portraits, and then her wedding.  She is a dancer at BYU, and is on the contemporary dance company. When I heard that she was going to be in town for a few days, there was no doubt that we had to put something together. I had a dress, which I knew would be a fabulous foundation for a Mediterranean dance shoot.

She pulled off the Mediterranean dance shoot look flawlessly. I made the headpiece and accessories and love how they turned out! I realized that I really love photographing dancers. There is something about catching the movement that organically adds life to the photo. Having majored in dance myself, it feels like completing a circle within myself. Photography is my current artistic medium, but being able to photograph the other prominent artistic part of me feels amazing.

We had the most beautiful light during this session, and Amy even hopped in the water at the end. I didn’t have to prompt her much as far as posing; most of it was very candid. There were a few moments that the sun was very bright so I used off-camera flash to brighten her up and sharpen the movement a little. We applied metallic tattoos all over her arms to give a touch of texture and to complement the theme. It was a perfect night, and I look forward to working with Amy again.
