SALT LAKE CITY: Do you know someone who got engaged in Yosemite National Park on October 6? A photographer from Michigan could have his photo of commitment.
Matthew Dippel is on the lookout to find the couple whose proposal he captured while sitting near Taft Point waiting to snap a photo of his friend.
"I had everything ready for my camera, so I just had to shoot," he said, according to the BBC. "But the couple left before him, so he was in the right place at the right time."
The photographer autodidacta did not see anyone else to capture the moment, so he took the picture, took another photo of his friend who was with him and returned hoping to show the mysterious couple.
But, as reported by Fox-5 San Diego, Dippel's efforts were in vain.
"I took the picture to try to find out who they were and I asked about 20 or 25 people and nobody showed up," he said.
But instead of surrendering, Dippel decided to go to social networks to find the couple. Its publication of October 17 has gone viral.
But even with more than 328,000 likes and 154,000 retweets, until October 21, Dippel has not yet found the couple.
"I still have hope, because he continues to gain attention and I hope he finds them," he said, according to the BBC. "I'm genuinely surprised that I have not done it yet!"
