Photographer Finds Engaged Couple After Facebook Search Goes Viral

CHICAGO (CBS) — Photographer Julio Salazar was doing a photoshoot on Saturday for a client in Millennium Park between the Bean and the Christmas tree, when he heard some commotion.

He already has his tripod and lighting set up, so when he heard cheering, he turned and began snapping photos.

But when he looked at the photos, they were all dark.

“I didn’t even think I got it,” Salazar said. “Until I got home and started to do some editing.”

Once Salazar got home, he started working his magic and edited the photos. He had taken seven or eight photos of the couple, but only one was clear and in focus.

Salazar was able to capture the moment of a man was proposing to a woman in the park.

The couple had no idea Salazar took their picture, and he did not know them. Salazar wanted to find the couple, but had trouble locating them.

“My biggest goal was to get the photo to them,” Salazar said.

He took to Facebook in hopes of finding the couple to give them a copy of the photograph. He started on two virtual garage sale sites and his photography page creating posts on Sunday asking for help.
