Kirsten & Gifford’s Cullipher Farm Engagement

When you think fall photos, you’re probably envisioning colored leaves, lots of deep, rich colors and maybe some mountain views. Well, let me tell you that there’s no need to break a sweat climbing a mountain for the perfect fall photo. In fact, Kirsten and Gifford created the perfect fall moment for their Cullipher Farm engagement session in the fall within the pumpkin patch!

How they met

Opposites sure do attract! Kirsten is a bookworm and Gifford is 100% a gamer and a law school student, so what connects them? Well, it’s actually their love for music. Kirsten enjoys folk and americana music, while Gifford enjoys listening to well basically everything. However, their love journey actually started when they met at a college fraternity party! Instead of catching brews and winning at beer pong, Gifford caught feelings and hit the lottery when he met Kirsten. I wonder if they remember what music was playing when they locked eyes?

The Proposal

So how did Gifford make sure to keep this music lover by his side? He made sure to make their engagement memorable and where better than George Washington’s home – Mount Vernon! The bonus? He proposed to Kirsten during a fireworks show at Mount Vernon. Talk about a magical proposal, I mean fireworks! Come on that’s so cute!

When it came to choosing a location, Kirsten knew she wanted to find a pumpkin patch for her engagement photos and we’re so happy she did! I mean mountain views are nice and all but I mean nothing beats going to a fun, local pumpkin patch in October!
