maria & irfan - duke gardens anniversary portraits

so back in september of 2012 when i shot my BFF maria's wedding, it was a super rainy day and the bridal portrait session we'd reserved at duke gardens had to be postponed. by their policy we had to return to shoot there within the year or we'd forfeit our permit, so we took the opportunity to visit again when we were both in raleigh, almost a year after the wedding, for an anniversary shoot. here are some of my favorites from that evening! they started out in casual clothes and then changed into their formal walima outfits. thanks again, both of you, for getting dolled up and traipsing around that humid day! much love <3
