Finding the right moment to pop the big question can take some planning. From timing it well and choosing idyllic surroundings to selecting the ring, everything needs to be perfect. And then there’s the issue of capturing the precious memory on video to be enjoyed again and again.

On June 28, 2018, a man from California chose New Mexico’s stunning Sandia Peak Tramway as the perfect spot to ask his girlfriend to marry him. The young couple, Christopher and Kandace, had been dating for eight years. And their romance had started at that very same spot. Christopher felt nervous but excited about the prospect of Kandace becoming his fiancée.

Moreover, Christopher was keen to have someone record the special moment on his camera phone. He had befriended an older man not long before reaching the summit. His new acquaintance’s name was John Hart, a retired military photographer on a day out with his family. “I saw that he was a Marine,” Christopher told KOB4 in July 2018. “I got to talking to him. I told him ‘thank you’ for your services and introduced him to Kandace.”
