Photographer Searching for Couple in His Epic Yosemite Engagement Photo

Oct 20, 2018



Michigan freelance photographer Matthew Dippel was in Yosemite National Park in California recently when he spotted a man walk out to the edge of a cliff with his girlfriend and drop to one knee. Dippel captured a breathtaking photo of the proposal from his vantage point, and now he’s searching for the mystery couple in his photo.

CNN reports that Dippel was at Taft Point waiting to photograph his friend Josh when he noticed the proposal going down. He’s the photo he made:



While the wide-angle photo makes the couple look extremely far away, they were located only about a two-minute walk across the ridge. Dippel hurried over to the spot after snapping the photo, but the 20 or 25 people he asked didn’t know anything about the proposal.

After returning home to Michigan, Dippel posted a message on Facebook asking for the public’s help in identifying the pair.

“Alright Internet I need your help,” he writes. “Help me find these two. This was taken at Taft Point, in Yosemite National Park on October 6th, 2018. I took this photo and would love for them to find it. My Instagram is @gorgeouscornchip.”

The post has received thousands of likes, hundreds of comments, and over ten thousand shares, but no one has been able to point to the right couple yet.

Dippel says that if he does find the couple, he’d like to make them a large print of the photo to commemorate their special moment.

Poetic Views of Nature: Realistic Landscapes by Peder Mørk Mønsted


Peder Mørk Mønsted (10 December 1859 – 20 June 1941) was a Danish realist painter. He is best known for his landscape paintings. He began painting from an early age and attended the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts from 1875 to 1879. Born at the end of the “ Golden Age” of Danish painting (from around 1800 to 1860), Peder Mønsted established his reputation primarily as a naturalist landscape artist—especially admired for his poetic point of view. His landscapes are incredibly detailed, yet do not appear to be overworked. This is not easy to achieve. Many realist paintings just appear too refined and have lost that painterly feel. In my opinion, a great painting should still look like a painting, not a photograph. His first artistic training was at the Prince Ferdinand School of Art in Aarhus, Denmark where he studied with the landscape painter Andreas Fritz, who influenced the young artist’s development. Mønsted then entered the Copenhagen Academy in 1875, but he left in 1879 without taking his final examination, choosing instead to continue his studies independently with established artists, including the Danish Realist genre and landscape painter Peder Severin Krøyer and French Academic painter William-Adolphe Bouguereau.
