Samantha & Cesar’s Duke Lemur Center Engagement Session

Did you know that if you’re getting married there, you can have a Duke Lemur Center engagement session? I think to get married there you have to have a relatively small wedding, but Cesar & Samantha knew that was exactly what they wanted, and they knew they loved lemurs, so voila, perfect venue. 

We first met these two when Cesar was a groomsman at Stephanie & Roscoe’s wedding and when they reached out to say they were getting married in a place where LEMURS JUST RUN AROUND*, I was like yes, let’s make this happen. 

*the ceremony spot doesn’t actually have lemurs just running around, you have to be in one of the lemur habitat areas for that, but still!

The first lemur we saw was a Coquerel’s Sifaka named Francesca (I think!). She was very content just hanging out in her little basket. 

A little bit deeper in though were some mongoose lemurs (they were my favorite, especially Nacho, who is the one you see hamming for the camera in the top image) along with some of Francesca’s Coquerel’s Sifaka family.

I think Samantha & Cesar had a good time! When the ringtail lemurs came out from the indoor area, it was like a little parade, with us as the eager citizens along Main Street.Duke engagement photos, Duke Lemur Center, Duke Lemur Center Engagement, Duke Lemur Center Wedding, Durham engagement photographer, Durham Wedding photographer, Engagement photos lemurs, Fun engagement photos, kivusandcamera.com, Unique Engagement Photos Duke engagement photos, Duke Lemur Center, Duke Lemur Center Engagement, Duke Lemur Center Wedding, Durham engagement photographer, Durham Wedding photographer, Engagement photos lemurs, Fun engagement photos, kivusandcamera.com, Unique Engagement Photos

They were jumping all around us and it was the coolest experience. It was also a really beautiful (if hot) day, so I’m sure the lemurs were enjoying themselves too.

You’re not allowed to touch the lemurs, but they come so close and look right at you, so it’s really hard not to, but I kept my hands on my cameras or glued to my sides to resist temptation. Thanks so much to our tour guide Sara for snapping this of me with my new buddy – Drusilla maybe? And thank you Cesar & Samantha for sharing this opportunity with me. I can’t wait for more fun at your wedding!Duke engagement photos, Duke Lemur Center, Duke Lemur Center Engagement, Duke Lemur Center Wedding, Durham engagement photographer, Durham Wedding photographer, Engagement photos lemurs, Fun engagement photos, kivusandcamera.com, Unique Engagement Photos
