Photographer Finds Couple In Viral Yosemite Photo

The power of the Internet can be amazing. A photographer says he has tracked down the couple he captured in a popular photo of a proposal at Yosemite National Park.  Matthew Dippel took the photo of a man on his knee as a woman extended her arm on Taft Point on October 6th. The Michigan man went on social media seeking the couple's identity. 

It wasn't long before he found who he was looking for.  The couple is Charlie Bear and his fiancee, Melissa and they live in Alhambra, California.  The soon-to-be-husband told Matthew that he captured "the second proposal, the more special and official one." He went on to explain that the couple originally got engaged in Utah in February, surrounded by friends and family. 

This is a very popular location for people to get engaged. It's the same location where two people were killed last week in a fall.
