Despite what the photographer intended, the music and extended introduction really detracted from whatever emotional power the picture is supposed to have.

And that just made me a little sick to my stomach. For so many reasons.

She doesn't seem to be very enthusiastic about the proposal. She doesn't look limp from shock. She looks rigid. Also, I don't think I would be thrilled if someone tracked me down and handed me a few pictures that were taken of me late at night by someone I don't know, and then made into a video and posted on the internet. A proposal is deeply personal for a couple, and it is their choice whether or not to share it with the World. I hope everything works out for them, though.

There's another smaller one nearby that looks like a tiny replica.

It's the WWI memorial close by. Duh!

Wouldn't it be sad if this turned into a national story, Good Morning America tracks them down and it turns out she had actually given him the ring back the next day and declined his proposal?
05:45 PM on 07/16/2012
What ring? Did anyone see a ring from the photos?
05:51 PM on 07/16/2012
Wow thats crazy, that actually happened today on Good Morning America

Angila, from one budding photographer to another self-described budding photographer, I have two words for you...color temperatures.

The woman doesn't look too enthusiastic there, what with her arms hanging straight down as he tries to kiss her. My guess based on this body language is that he was more excited about this than she was.

That struck me as a little odd, too, but I hope we're wrong. He seems like a good guy..

I know. I mean, we know so much about him. He has a uniform and a ring. And she is still alive in this shot.

I thought the same thing, maybe there are more pictures that better convey her emotion though, she only showed the one...
06:42 PM on 07/16/2012
I think she has morebut only showing a few to show what the couple looked like... it does say that she snapped a few pics
05:10 PM on 07/16/2012
That picture will come in handy when I file for divorce. Thanks Angila!
05:52 PM on 07/16/2012
Lol you like shorter men

This sort of story demonstrates there are truly decent people in our world. I salute Angila Golik. You are a credit to humanity.

And how exactly is that?
05:06 PM on 07/16/2012
Sorry. It may be legal to do what this photographer did, but it's also incredibly tasteless. She should have made a better effort to locate this couple and give them the choice about whether they wanted to appear in a music video slideshow, with commentary, on the internet, in what they thought was a private moment.

This couple may not choose to live their lives in such a public manner, or share the photographer's passion for crappy video editing and cheesy country music songs. But that doesn't matter because instead of just posting a picture, or asking around various military bases to find them, she made a youtube video with them instead.

What's amazing to me is how so many people think this couple should be grateful for the pictures and the attention.

I have a friend doing an internship with the DOD in DC. He is airforce. I'll see if we can help. Ironically, I was having dinner with him about the same time as when you took the picture. It says a lot about MEA members that you are trying so hard to find this couple. Educators are amazing.
05:05 PM on 07/16/2012
Oh puh-leeeze! Don't be a sucker. Everybody knows this is online by now. If the couple were real -- and infact -- wanted to be found, they would have been sick of hearing about it by now!
04:41 PM on 07/16/2012
I just cried.
05:52 PM on 07/16/2012
Was it really that bad?
09:15 AM on 07/17/2012
It wasn't bad, it was just very sweet and romantic and I am a big softy. Hope this photographer finds this couple.
04:41 PM on 07/16/2012
Oh brother! What's the big deal? People get married every day...and divorced 6 months later. This lady reads too many romance novels. Get real!

I am a romantic. My idea of romance is being somewhere private, not having some smarmy teenaged mo/ron taking my picture, writing a sappy narrative for it, and spamming it all over the internet for self-notoriety.
04:31 PM on 07/16/2012
Ms. Golik, I think it's fabulous of you to try to find this couple!! I am sure they'll be delighted to have the memory from you. Good luck!!!

Just think, they might even invite her along on the honeymoon so she could write the narrative for that one too. Including the sex scenes.

@jimboy71--seriously, your posts are becoming more demented the more you post on this topic. Perhaps time for your nap.
