Secor Farms Pumpkin Patch & Ramapo Reservation Engagement Session, NJ | Gianna & Victor

I’ve been dreaming of shooting a pumpkin patch engagement session for so long, and Gianna and Victor thankfully made that happen without even knowing! We were originally just going to go to Ramapo Reservation, but then they realized there was a pumpkin patch really close by called Secor Farms! We made the quick change to start at the patch and then head over to the reservation to get the best of both spots, and I’m SO glad we did. The patch was a little sparse, as we went on a weekend when allllll the families and kiddos were there to get their pumpkins, but we found a nice secluded area away from all the people for Gianna and Victor to run around in, balance pumpkins on their heads, and cuddle up in! A super talented makeup artist and my sweet friend, Samantha Linn, did Gianna’s gorgeous makeup for this session! She did such a beautiful job with this natural look that matched the warm tones of our locations! These two are the giggliest, sweetest, cutest lovebirds I’ve seen, and it was such a fun evening exploring the area and learning more about them! They have SO much fun together and know exactly how to make each other laugh, which is my favorite to capture – genuine joy and connection!

Gianna and Victor, thank you so much for being SO adventurous and trekking through mud, standing on pumpkins, and exploring the depths of the woods for some awesome photos. You two slayed this sesh, and I’m so excited to share these images during such a beautiful time of the year! I seriously can’t wait for your big day – I know you’re going to plan such a gorgeous, unique wedding day! Love you two!!! <3

Victor and Gianna met online, even though Gianna never really believed in dating sites after not having much luck with the guys she met on them! Then, she came across Victor’s profile and they were a 100% match according to the site, so she went for it and sent him a message! They talked for a couple of months and got to know each other. They tried meeting several times, but she was always a little too nervous! Finally, she went out with him, and he asked her to be his valentine! He picked her up at her house, which she said, “for some might be crazy to give my actual address, but it almost felt like we were already dating!” Victor took Gianna to the city for a comedy show and dinner, and needless to say, they hit it off!

When I asked Gianna about how Victor proposed, she told me, “So, Victor and I were talking about marriage for a while, we both knew we wanted it but we were always nervous to take that big step. Victor would put the topic off for quite sometime, until one day we went to a couple jewelry stores just to look for what I would like…I had no idea the proposal would be coming sooner than later. On Christmas Eve, we went to his aunt’s house to enjoy the holiday with family, the night was going as normal as it would be until his aunt pulled me to the side asking me to go see her new bedroom which just had gotten re-done. As she’s walking me to her room, she gets to the door and sort of pushes me in and closes the door behind me. I walked in to candles and rose petals all over. Victor was standing there with a bouquet of roses. Each rose he gave me, he told me why it is that he loves me and how much I mean to him. The last rose he took out was a silver rose, that’s when he got down on one knee, opened the rose (which was a box) and asked me to marry him. Honestly, he said so much and I wish I could remember it all but I was in La la land!” HOW STINKING ADORABLE ARE THEY?!
