Joel D Studio 2022 | Minneapolis St. Paul, Twin Cities Minnesota | Ballet and Dance Photographer Emily Charais

I cannot even begin to count the times I have worked with Joel and I am so lucky to be able to say that. This guy is a gem in the dance world. He is a professional ballet dancer dancing in Germany right now, but he has made his mark all over the world. Our sessions are usually so much fun that our time flies too fast and our brains are spinning for all of our ideas. His professionalism and work ethic shine!
