Engaged couple sees their proposal photo on Facebook

ANTHEM, Ariz. -

It's a moment that every married couple wants to remember forever -- when he pops the question.

A valley couple got a pleasant surprise when a photo of theirs -- that they had never seen before -- went viral.

That magical moment was captured right on a bridge at Anthem Community Park Saturday, but when the photographer never heard from that couple, she turned to social media.

"I saw him starting to go on one knee and it's like oh my gosh he's going to propose to her right now," says photographer Kim Mettina.

While in the middle of taking pictures for a client, Kim Mettina noticed an engagement in progress. She paused the photo shoot in progress to snap this special shot.

"I was more focused on him down on one knee at the moment but I heard the click click click of the camera," says bride-to-be Audrey Laws.

In awe of her fiance, Josh Partridge, bride-to-be Audrey Laws lost the business card Kim handed her so she could claim the photos. The couple thought they'd never see the photo.

"It wasn't ‘til yesterday I was tagged in a photo on Facebook through my soon to be mother-in-law. It was crazy, I was like oh my goodness this picture actually made it to us," says Laws.

Kim posted the picture on Facebook Monday asking if anyone knew the couple. The picture was shared 500 times, and viewed 500,000 times. By Tuesday night her bride-to-be was tagged.

"He wasn't expecting it to be captured, I wasn't, but I guess by the grace of God we got it captured."

"They cannot go back and get this moment again, it's done. I was able to give that to them so that's pretty special," says Mettina.

Audrey is thrilled that she can show the photo at her wedding and someday to her children. Kim says, for her, that's what being a photographer is all about.

Mettina gave the couple digital copies of multiple pictures free of charge on behalf of her business iremembertoday.com.
