This beautiful engagement shoot by MEIWEN WANG is drenched in that stunning California light. Captured in Palos Verdes on a secluded rocky portion of the coast Michelle & Hans were the absolute dream couple to for Meiwen to photograph - their love for each other is so fun and obvious to see. "They took us down to a secluded area of the Palos Verdes coastline, near the area where he proposed, where they often go running together. I love that the location was a familiar and special place to them, and there was nobody else but us there. The entire afternoon felt like we were just hanging out with good friends, but also casually documenting their love & intimate interactions-- my favourite kind of shoot!"
The couple share their proposal story with us, "Hans proposed to me on June 11th, 2016. The morning of, Hans told me he was going to a friends graduation at UCLA but he was actually setting up with everyone. The location he chose was our favourite spot to run in Palos Verdes. It is this small cliff that overlooks the ocean with the Palos Verdes cliffs on the side. When I first found this place I thought it would be amazing to be proposed here but I never told anyone. Somehow he was thinking the same thing!
So after he comes back from "graduation" he tells me let's celebrate our 4.5 yr anniversary early! Let's dress up a little and take some pictures. I go along with it so we're driving down Palos Verdes Drive but we have to pass the location, park, and walk to get to the location. As we were driving we saw his sister and my sister booking it to get there before we do. I chuckled and said, "Hans, I saw someone that looks just like your sister." He brushes it off but later we see my mom and my step dad walking and it just became hilarious from there.
