What happens when someone proficient with Photoshop, such as a wedding photographer identified only as Wan, wants to make something sweet for his girlfriend of four years? You end up with this: a collection of Photoshopped photographs as creepy as it might be romantic.
Long exposure photographs of stars and romantic engagement photographs aren’t often found together, but that’s the fusion wedding photography couple Robert Paetz and Felicia Wong have been dabbling with as of late.

After having the most amazing day ever, we were on the deck of our penthouse apartment drinking Veuve at which point Emma said “this moment couldn’t get any more perfect”… She was wrong! I told her to do a big 360 degree video of the sunset finishing on me and I would wave and say hello. [#]
The whole thing “couldn’t have gone more perfectly,” the photographer says.
Can you believe the proposal photo above wasn’t planned? In fact, the photographer wasn’t even aware of what was going on. It was snapped this past Sunday by 20-year-old Sydney University student Michael Keane, who visited Sydney’s Bondi Beach early in the morning to capture photographs of the sunrise. After returning home to post-process the images, Keane zoomed into his photos and was surprised to find that he had accidentally captured a very romantic moment happening way in the horizon.
