Meet Shelly and and Daniel! These two love to do all things adventurous and it’s not uncommon to find them on a long hike or running a marathon. Their Palos Verdes Estates Cliffside Engagement felt natural and relaxed. It was clear to us that Shelly and Daniel feel most at home outdoors and we loved every moment we spent getting to know them.
Check out their engagement story told by Shelly:
“We were on a trip in Hawaii with our friends in August 2013. We went on an island hop to Kauai to zip line for the day away from our friends. At the end of the day he took me to a spot over-looking the ocean and sunset. I told him I wanted to come back to this spot to take picture. That is when he said, ‘I have a better idea.’ I turned around and he was on one knee!”
We love this story for so many reasons! We love the simplicity of this proposal and how well it matched both Daniel and Shelly’s personalities. They knew they were ready to moving into marriage after really getting to know each other.
“We were both moving in the same direction of bettering ourselves and it seemed we were both heading in the same direction. Our past experiences had made us aware of what we each wanted in someone. We both felt we had found the special connection and respect we were looking for in a person.”
We are so excited to have the Figlewicz Photo team at Gerry Ranch later this month to capture Daniel and Shelly’s big day!
