Ashton & Jake | Love Story

We love new and unique ideas!  So when Ashton told us she wanted to do part of her engagement session in a greenhouse we were 110% on board!  We couldn’t wait, and if you ask us it was the best idea ever! Frese Ornamental Nursery in Quincy was so accommodating. They stocked the hydrangea area just for her session and it was beautiful!  (Huge thank you to everyone at Frese for going above and beyond to make sure Ashton’s vision for a greenhouse session was executed to the utmost extent, and thank you for letting us come in and take over for a while.) We could talk forever about the greenhouse, but we can’t leave out the other beautiful locations we visited.  After Quincy we headed back to Camp Point for some pictures at a local park and ended the evening at a beautiful house with great architecture.  We couldn’t have asked for better locations, Ashton you did a fabulous job picking them! We can’t wait for their wedding next summer, which happens to be exactly one year from today!   Here are a few of our favorites, enjoy!
