Photographer Mariah Dagupion was on her way to shoot a wedding (ironically) when she stopped at the beach and noticed a man getting down on one knee and proposing to his girlfriend. Of course, it was only natural that Dagupion whipped out her camera to capture the surprise proposal!
The couple had no idea that their photo was being taken and Dagupion had no idea how to reach them. That's where social media comes in. Dagupion had posted the photos in hopes of finding the couple and once a local news station picked it up, the pictures went viral. That's when 25-year-old Susan Schrank was tagged on Dagupion's Facebook photo and ta-da! The happy couple got some surprise wedding proposal photos.
"As a girl," Schrank said, "you kind of think about what these things would be like. It was really amazing to get pictures like the ones [Dagupion] took. She got my perfect reactions. I was feeling all the emotions you can see on my face." Here are some of the photos:
