Hard to Believe…but this happened!
Matthew Dippel shot what has turned into the best photo of his life: high up on a cliff a man proposing to his girlfriend in Yosemite National Park.
This was perfect timing, however, Dippel had to clue who the man and woman even were, and because of the distance, he was too far away to walk over and ask.
“I ran over there to try and find them, asked maybe 20-25 individuals and came up short,” Dippel told ABC News.
He was bound and determined to find the couple, so he kicked off a campaign to track them down.
“I’ve seen countless photos from this point […] I’m just surprised at how viral my mysterious couple became!”
On October 17, Dippel shared the photo on Twitter
“Twitter help,” he wrote, “[I don’t know] who these two are but I hope this finds them. I took this at Taft Point at Yosemite National Park, on October 6th, 2018.”
The amazing shot and the story inspired thousands of twitter viewers to jump in to help track down the pair the photo received over 150,000 shares on Twitter alone.
“I’ve seen countless photos from this point. It’s super popular,” Dippel explained, “I’m just surprised at how viral my mysterious couple became!”
With over a week into the search, Dippel began to think the mysterious couple didn’t want to be found, or that they never expected to get an epic proposal photo.
Then three days later the magical mysterious couple and Twitter was on fire again, but this time with the happy ending to this love story.
“Everyone meet, Charlie Bear and his fiancé Melissa the happy couple that was out on the point in my Taft Point Proposal,” he wrote on Facebook.
“In short, I captured the second proposal, the more special and official one in Charlie’s words.”
Charlie had been watching local news Instagram when he took notice to the photo. He explained that he and Melissa both love the outdoors, so the park was the perfect place for a special photo. He hoped to get an “epic proposal photo” on the cliffside, but I guarantee he never thought this would be it.
Have you ever seen such a gorgeous proposal photo?
