Ricky Johnson Jr. met Jazmine Winn at church in Sacramento. After two years of dating, he was ready to pop the question.

“I knew I wanted to surprise her because I am one of those go-big-or-go-home kind of guys, so I wanted to make sure it was big,” Johnson said.

The couple drove to San Francisco on Saturday, and Johnson proposed at a popular scenic destination.

Photographer Valerie Contreras, of El Paso, Texas, happened to be visiting San Francisco with some friends and had her camera in hand when Johnson proposed to Winn.

She took photos and posted them on Twitter asking people to help her find the newly engaged couple.

HELP ME FIND THIS COUPLE! I was out at the sutro baths in SF when we started suspecting a proposal about to happen so we prepped my camera just in case and it happened! I got these photos of it and didn’t want to ruin their moment and hoped I would later find them through here 🤞🏼

“It was definitely surprising. It’s been overwhelming. The love. The support. The kind and warm wishes. Everybody’s just been really loving, so we appreciate it,” Winn said.
