These are absolutely fantastic!
I so wish you could find the couple--they would kill for these photos--
What a beautiful shot with the sun going down and the couple in silhouette. Outstanding.

That's fantastic, you have to find the couple. That moment is priceless. This is a competition winner for sure!

Call a local radio station for help in finding them...

That is just flat-out amazing...The pure coincidence and the beauty of that shot all stand out on their own to make an amazing story. I would try craigslist and facebook - Local news stations would eat this up!! Give them a call - Find that couple!

How fortunate for you - and I agree. I think she accepted!

Judging by the other images I would say she accepted.

What a perfect way to start the summer.

They want to write a story, hopefully the couple will be found.
That's great news and congrats on the publicity! Very well deserved.

What synchronicity! They will be thrilled when they find out. You've done a great thing here.
