Fatimah reached out to me early last summer with a lovely e-mail and a simple request. She wrote, "I was looking through your albums and your photos are really wonderful. I was thinking of getting a wedding photo-shoot at some point this year. I’m already married but I did not have a wedding so my husband and I never got to take any photos. I’m not sure how it’s done. I’m flexible with dates whenever it fits your schedule."
I immediately wrote her back. I hate the thought of anyone not having any wedding photos, even if it's just a few.
Since summer was knocking at the door, and since we both HATE the heat, we decided to wait until the fall for their couples photo shoot.
For the first part of our photo session, Fatimah and her husband Ali were dressed in their wedding finery. She bought the dress just for the photo shoot! We spent a perfect Wednesday afternoon in late October at Garvan Woodland Garden's in Hot Springs. If you're wanting to do a photo shoot at Garvan in the fall, mid-week is the time to do it! The gardens was nearly empty. We practically had the place to ourselves.
