The concept for this shoot began with one word: movement. We were personally inspired by the emotional side of dancing and had been longing to collaborate on a piece that was centered around the love of two dancers.

The beginning of the film centers on the isolation and subtle movement before the two lovers meet. A combination of pronounced cinematic movement and raw “handheld” camera work strives to convey a dance of both elegance and emotion.

We were so lucky to be able to work with talented professional ballet dancers from the Richmond Ballet, Valerie Tellman-Henning and Kirk Henning. Newlyweds themselves, Valerie and Kirk wed last summer at the Carpenter Theater in Richmond. You may recognize the couple from a viral video of Kirk and his groomsmen performing an 8-minute choreographed dance for Valerie at their wedding. If you haven’t seen it before, you must watch!

We are honored to have had this print and motion collaboration exhibited on-site during the fall of 2016 at The Branch Museum of Architecture and Design and featured on Style Me Pretty and Modern Sanctuary!
