Mystery couple in yosemite proposal photo identified after viral search

The US photographer who captured the viral snap of a mystery couple getting engaged at Yosemite National Park in California says he has finally identified them.

Matthew Dipple had stopped off at the famous landmark with his friend Josh as part of a road trip to Los Angeles when he spotted the proposal happening from afar.

He didn’t see any other photographers nearby and, as he already had his camera set up to take photos of Josh, decided to document the intimate moment in the hope that he could give the snap to the couple.

After taking the shots, Dippel rushed to Taft Point, where he’d seen the couple, but they had gone by the time he arrived.

The 24-year-old promptly shared the image on Twitter in a bid to track them down, writing: “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.”

Now, after the tweet was retweeted more than 171,000 times, Dippel has found the couple, who have been identified as Charlie Bear and Melissa.
