As we may see a lot of bouquets every year it’s hard to pick just one to be our favorite. Looking at how different they can be depending on the season here are a few of our recent favorite bouquet flowers!

Ethan and Katherine’s engagement session this past summer in the garden’s at Hill Valley Cafe. This location was perfect for their love of gardening and being outside. As we adventured around the location we found a lot of great spots to surround them in their habitat.
