Michigan-based photographer Matthew Dippel was in Yosemite scoring some sunset photography at the popular Taft Point when two people walked to the edge of the cliff. As his camera pointed to the man and woman, the man got on one knee and proposed to the woman.
The subsequent photo of the proposal turned out to be incredible, and now Dippel is using social media to find the couple.
Dippel posted the photo to Twitter to see if the internet can work his magic and find the unsuspecting couple. Here is his plea to the public:
Twitter help, idk who these two are but I hope this finds them. I took this at Taft Point at Yosemite National Park, on October 6th, 2018. pic.twitter.com/Rdzy0QqFbY

“Twitter help, (I don’t know) who these two are but I hope this finds them,” Dippel shared on Twitter. “I took this at Taft Point at Yosemite National Park, on October 6th, 2018.”
Though Dippel only has just over 2,000 followers on the social media site, his image has gone viral, with over 94,000 retweets and 209,000 likes. The story has been featured on news networks worldwide including CNN and USA Today. As of October 19th, the couple still had not been found.
So, there’s a couple out there that has the moist epic proposal photo and don’t even know it. Here’s to hoping they eventually find it!
