Yosemite National Park is a great place to take pictures, if you can get away from the throngs of tourists. One recent photograph taken in the park caught a couple in what appears to be a special moment. Now the internet is searching for who the picturesque couple might be.
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

“Matthew Dippel from Grand Rapids, Michigan, was on Taft Point at the national park in California when he spotted a proposal from across the cliffs,” The Daily Mail writes.
The photographer quickly set up and took an inspiring photo of the moment. After coming home from the park, he posted the image to Twitter.
“Twitter help, idk who these two are but I hope this finds them,” Matthew wrote Wednesday. “I took this at Taft Point at Yosemite National Park, on October 6th, 2018.”
Update #2: Still no luck. A lot of people saying they found them but doesn't turn out to be the right couple. If you honestly think you found them message me please! I can't keep scrolling through the comments to look. Thanks everyone!

As of this writing, the couple remains unknown. The man is kneeling as the woman stands with him on the point.
Where they at though? pic.twitter.com/qqjhj8V54Y

“The photograph has been shared more than 90,000 times on Twitter as followers around the world are working to help the photograph locate the newly engaged couple,” DM notes.
So they really aren’t going to show up? After all we’ve done for them. pic.twitter.com/kC4Xgx5ynL

“Do you know who this couple might be?” DM asks. “Email [email protected]”

In an interesting side note, many of the comments on twitter concerned two distinct elements. One thread focused on how ineffectual twitter users are at finding people. The other is looking at the image compared to other photos taken at the same spot. In that sub-thread, the discussion focuses in on if the sun shifts or not.
