American photographer Jacob Peters woke up at 2:30 a.m. and hiked up a mountain at dawn to photograph a couple's proposal. Oops, it turns out he captured the photos of wrong couple.
When Peters reached home and texted the groom-to-be to congratulate him and the man apologised for being over an hour late, Peters immediately realised he had photographed the wrong proposal. The groom-to-be replied to peters: "Congratulations, the photos are beautiful. “I'm confused, we never saw you and we got there a little late, are you sure it was us? I was in a blue plaid shirt…”
“Basically I spent six and half hours, $40 in gas and food, 450 photos, and took the wrong couple's photos,” Peters wrote on Facebook. The photographer posted the story on his page, JP Photography, and after it went viral, the mystery couple was identified.
“I can’t believe what I’m seeing! My fiancée is going nuts seeing this. She even got goose bumps over this.” the soon-to-be groom wrote on Peters’ Facebook page.
“The couple has been found and contacted and they now have their photos. For anyone interested, they are from Dallas, TX. Thank you to everyone who shared, Peter said, adding : “The internet never fails to amaze me.”
Here are some of the couple's photos that Peters shared on his Facebook page
