Rachel Remmy from Pennsylvania, USA, tweeted a request looking for the unknown photographer, who was wearing orange shoes, and had captured her fiancé Christian’s surprise engagement at the top of the Rockefeller Center, in New York.
She shared a video of the engagement along with the caption: ‘Please RT and help me find the guy with the orange shoes!
‘We got engaged 6/15 on Top of the Rock, NYC! We have the perfect video but no actual photos of it happening and he was taking pictures with his camera and I had no idea!’
Rachel searched for the photographer on Twitter (Picture: Lloyd at Black Bear Photography/ Jam Press)The tweet was shared by more than 61,000 people, and the photographer actually ended up being found.
Lloyd Merrick, of Black Bear Photography, replied 18 hours later to congratulate the pair on their engagement – and said he would upload the photos for them.
Rachel also updated the tweet after Lloyd was found and wrote: ‘We are overwhelmed by the well wishes we’ve felt from all over the world in the last two days.
‘Finding @Lloyd_Merrick39 so fast wouldn’t have been possible w/out [sic] the help of people sharing the video. Photos are a huge part of my life and having these will be something I cherish forever.’
Lloyd came forward as the photographer (Picture: Jam Press)Lloyd said the whole thing has been very surreal.
‘I was amazed by the positive response and just thrilled to be a part of such a special moment and have the honour of sharing my photos with them,’ he said.
‘I was so impressed and amazed at the power of social media to be able to connect us and in such a relatively short period of time!’
Not one to let down her new followers, Rachel also posted: ‘If you want to continue following @ChristianHour and my journey to our wedding, you can find us at EverAfterEisenhour on Instagram, Always, the Future Eisenhours’.
Let’s hope Lloyd gets an invite to the wedding – we’re sure he’d make the perfect wedding photographer.
