Quincy Illinois Engagement

Quincy Illinois Engagement. Hours before sunset in Quincy, Ill., Abby and Austin descended upon two telling locations for their engagement session: South Park and the Tiramisu restaurant. Every detail was carefully planned out – from florals to gorgeous accents to faithful companions, making this session especially meaningful for the future bride and groom.

Bride Abby is a florist and she put careful energy into every aspect of the shoot. She incorporated red-inspired florals in her headpiece, cuff and burgeoning bouquet - a colorful spark to start the session.

In the park, the two bask in the dying sunlight. Austin wears a long sleeve blue shirt and khakis that match perfectly with Abby's casual chic white maxi dress.

They even make their way over to a babbling brook anchored by lush greenery to share warm embraces. The rich impression of her bouquet ignites the setting with color.

They make a quick outfit change to ramp up the style. Austin dons a light blue flannel shirt while Abby stuns in a navy blue and white high-low dress.

The highlight of the shoot came when their two pups – Annie and Stan – joined along, eager and excited to celebrate a day in the park.

Before the daylight ceased, the couple made one more outfit change and headed over to a place near and dear to their hearts– the Italian restaurant where they had their first date.

Austin looked handsome in a gray suit and Abby beamed in a bold red cocktail dress. One can clearly see where the inspiration for her floral design originated.
