{Sweater & Tutu} on the Streets

I had the absolute pleasure of meeting and shooting with photographer Lukas Guil two weekends ago before the Sunday performance of {Master Composers}.

My dear friend and former colleague, Taisha (now dancer with the Ballet de Capitole in Toulouse, France) introduced us through Facebook. Taisha and I danced together six years ago as tall corps members with Carolina Ballet; I miss her dearly, but she offers an excellent excuse to visit France.

These photographs document Lukas’ first full day in Raleigh. As we were running through streets, he continually mentioned how photogenic of a city Raleigh was. I had never though of it before, but I do believe he is right. There are many unique structures that would catch any artist’s eye.

Lukas had been traveling with his girlfriend for four weeks in Canada and along the East coast. Raleigh was one of his last stops before returning to France.

Although Lukas specializes in engagement and wedding photography, he has a passion for shooting dancers in urban settings. The result is truly special. It was fun watching him find his next inspiration as we walked through the streets of Downtown Raleigh. I was eager to be part of his creative vision, as I have explored such projects myself and with Raleigh-local photographer, Tim Lytvinenko.

I am fortunate to have these beautiful photos to document my time with Lukas. I look forward to meeting him again in Toulouse.
