Marriage proposals are consistently some of life's most picturesque moments.
On a recent trip to Yosemite National Park in California, professional photographer Matthew Dippel had the pleasure of accidentally witnessing a proposal between two strangers from afar. Naturally, he whipped out his camera and captured a visually spectacular, wildly romantic shot.
In hopes of finding the two people in the photograph, Dippel turned to Twitter for help, sharing the image and a bit of context to aid in the search.
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

I mean, look at this photo! It's breathtaking and if this were your engagement photo I'm pretty sure you'd want it.
Dippel was actually waiting for his friend Josh to walk out to the point when he witnessed the proposal, he told Mashable via email. "Before he walked out onto the ledge the couple did first and then next thing I knew he was on one knee," he explained.
"I had my settings all ready to go, due to waiting for Josh, so I just snapped away and managed to get a beautiful photo."
After he grabbed the shot of Josh, Dippel went over to find the couple and share the photo with them, but unfortunately he couldn't determine exactly which two people he'd seen from afar.
"There were maybe 12 other photographers there along with three or four brides and grooms taking photos at the point," he said.
Dippel also explained that he mainly photographs concerts, portraits, and landscapes. Though judging from this shot it seems he should consider adding engagement photos to his repertoire.
At the time of writing, Dippel's tweet had nearly 200,000 likes and almost 89,000 retweets, but the couple still hadn't been located.
Update: Still have not found them.

So do your thing, internet, and share the photo in hopes that it finds its way to these national park lovebirds.
