SUMMIT COUNTY, Colo. (KKTV) - A photographer was able to get some help from the public with tracking down a couple she took pictures of!

On June 27, Laura Penning was out for a hike along Hoosier Pass in the Rocky Mountains. The scenic area with breathtaking views is just to the south of Breckenridge. Armed with her camera, Laura saw a man get down on one knee in front of a woman he was next to. She captured a moment the unidentified couple will never forget! But there was one problem: Laura originally had no idea who the people in her photos were and couldn’t get in touch with them!

Laura says she thought she put their contact info in her phone, but when she went to reach out to them it wasn’t there. She was hoping to share the photos with the newly-engaged couple and started asking for help from the internet.

The internet answered her call!

A woman named Alicia from Colorado shared the photos with a friend from Boston. A friend she had met online through a “Mommy Group.” Just on a whim, she was hoping her Boston friend could spread the word out east. Within minutes of her friend sharing the photos, the couple was identified! The newly-engaged couple is from Massachusetts.

Laura was able to send the young lovers photos of a moment they will likely cherish for the rest of their lives!

They have been found! Thank you allllll!!!!!!!!
