CALEDONIA, Mich. – A Michigan photographer snapped a special moment completely by accident. Matthew Dippel was shooting at Yosemite National Park when he photographed a proposal in progress, and now he wants to find the couple he captured.
Dippel said he was shooting the beautiful landscape at the park, only to notice two people in his shot, one on bent knee. When he looked for the couple, they were gone.
"Honestly, I couldn't believe what was happening," he said of the incident.
Dippel accidentally captured the proposal, saying it was a raw moment he had to get.
"I didn't have a lot of time to act, and I already had my settings ready to go and I just pointed my camera at them and snapped away," he said.
Dippel said he rushed to find the couple, asking several people at the park that day if they knew the man and woman in the photo. With no luck, he took his inquiry to the internet.
"I posted it in hopes to find them on everything and, now, on Twitter, it's gone viral in almost a day now," he said.
But, thousands of likes and retweets later and still no "Yosemite Newlyweds" in sight. Dipple said he won't give up until he finds them.
Dipple's hoping to share the "Will You?" photo with the couple that may soon say "I Do."
"I truly hope the photo finds you. I've got a pretty solid photo for you, and I'd really like to share it with you 'cause it's a truly beautiful moment," he said.
If you have any idea who the couple is, you can reach out to Dippel through Twitter, linked here. If you don’t, he hopes just sharing the story through social media will eventually reach the pair.
