Photographer who snapped stunning proposal photo searching for couple

A photographer is desperately trying to track down a couple after snapping an “amazing” proposal photo.

Matthew Dippel has taken to Twitter to share a picture he snapped at Yosemite National Park in California on October 6.

The picture shows a man down on one knee, appearing to propose, as the woman stands in front of him near the edge of Taft Point.


However, due to the distance, it’s hard to see their faces. 

“Twitter help, idk who these two are but I hope this finds them,” Mr Dippel tweeted. 

The snapper has provided two updates, but no one has managed to find the two people in the photograph.

It’s not known if the picture depicts the moment of the proposal or if it was staged by the couple.

Regardless, the pic has been re-tweeted more than 100,000 times and has more than 220,000 likes. 


“This image is insane,” one woman tweeted. 

“Wow, I wish this was me,” another said. 

Others labelled the photo as “incredible” and “a beautiful coincidence”.

“This is honestly one of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen,” another tweeted.  

“Very few pictures move me this much.”


The Twitter thread has also been bombarded with suggestions for who the couple might be but none of the theories have been correct so far.

Twitter users provided other examples of couples having wedding and engagement photos taken in similar areas. 

It’s not known exactly why Mr Dippel was in the location at the time of the photograph.

In June, an amateur WA photographer managed to track down a mystery couple he snapped sharing an intimate kiss at sunset.

Rod Maldon had been at Hillarys Boat Harbour in Western Australia for a sunset shoot when he captured the unforgettable moment for Lauren Exell and Dan Smyth.
