Kate and Ryan are getting married this fall and unfortunately they already have a family friend that will be documenting their wedding day but their family friend lives out of town and they wanted to do an engagement session at American Tobacco Campus and Duke Gardens. We met on a beautiful day in which it wasn’t too hot and it wasn’t too cold and the sun was out and all was well and good weather wise at the ATC.
When we went to Duke Gardens, it was perfectly beautiful and sunny and half way through our perfect session – in typical NC weather fashion we end up with a random little rain storm. Sometimes it freaks me out – are we going to have to stop the session and wait it out? NOPE; Kate and Ryan were troopers and actually some of my favorite images were when we were caught in the rain because you can see the rain falling over the lake at the gardens. It was definitely a unique opportunity to get these rain shots and we were slightly hidden in the canopy of some of the trees on the edge of the lake.
Hope you enjoy some of my favorites from Kate and Ryan’s Durham, NC engagement session and congrats to the newlyweds as they were married a few months after this session;)
