About Raleigh Dance Photography

Raleigh Dance Photography was born out of commercial and fitness photoshoots in 2015. Slowly evolved to personal projects and editorial shoots. In 2016 became a small part of our Wedding and Commercial photography. A few years later Dancing/Creating/Elevating became the primary focus. Capturing all Dance and movement. Creating and collaborating on unique and personalized shoots with dancers. Elevating dancers’ self-expression.
