CLEARWATER BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A photographer captured a beautiful picture of a couple on a Florida beach, silhouetted by the setting sun moments after their marriage proposal.

As The Tampa Bay Times reports , Lori Hayes realized that she had the couple's moment in her hands, but they left Clearwater Beach before she could share it.

Hayes then took to social media, asking if anyone knew of an engagement there Friday. She also asked television station WFLA to share the image.

Word spread, and within days, a friend tagged Brooke Houseworth. She and her fiance Bryan Parker found the photo on WFLA's website and got in touch.

Houseworth calls it "such a gift to have that moment" captured by someone who thought it was "as beautiful as we did."
