On October 6th, freelance photographer Matthew Dippel was taking photos of his friend against Yosemite National Park’s dramatic cliffs, when he noticed a couple in the distance in the midst of a proposal. Now, the photographer is on the hunt for their identity.
He was waiting for his friend to appear on the 3,500-foot drop ledge known as Taft Point, but the couple stepped out first. “I had everything all ready to go on my camera,” he told BBC News, “so I just had to snap away…I was just in the right place at the right time.” He also noted that there were no other photographers present to capture the moment. Once he had finished his photoshoot, Dippel hurried to find the couple and show them the picture, but they were gone.
