Assignment: Portrait of a Salsa Instructor

Kristiaan and I met Lucy (and Lance) a few years ago through my mother. Sounds like how I met Kristiaan right? We instantly became friends, had many similar interests and eventually ended up photographing their wedding in Puerto Rico. Fast forward a year and after a few conversations I get the opportunity to work with Lucy combining our two favorite things, dance and photography.

Lucy teaches private and class structured lessons with the established DC Style Salsa Academy - make sure to check them out! We were joined by the ever so wonderful Christelle who has been with the team at DC Style Salsa Academy for about a year now. Christelle is part of the Virginia branch.

I soon discovered that watching dance and capturing it on camera were two totally different things. However I think our end result was well worth the effort.
