Ever seen a photo of a couple taken at a serene location and thought, ‘I wonder who they are?’
So did this photographer and thousands of others. The photograph in question here is of an anonymous couple, mid-proposal in US’s Yosemite park. And the photographer who captured the moment has since lead a search on the Internet to find the mystery couple.
Matthew Dippel, the photographer from Michigan, was visiting Yosemite National park, known for its dramatic cliff faces and waterfalls, with the intent of capturing some photos from the famous Taft Point at sunset.
While he had his camera ready, he happened to snap a photograph of a couple who were making their way to the edge, dressed in an immaculate suit and floor-length dress. After clicking the picture, Dippel raced around to Taft Point to try and find the couple he had photographed but, with a lot of people queued up before him to get to the viewpoint, he was unable to locate them.
Not ready to give up, Dippel decided to share the photograph on Twitter alongside the caption: “Twitter help, idk (I don’t know) who these two are but I hope this finds them.”

The tweet not only went viral, but Internet sleuths even tried to help Dippel hunt down the couple.
Update: Still have not found them.
