MBA Alum's Mystery Proposal Photo Goes Viral
When Joel Bush, MBA ’97, dropped to one knee and held a diamond ring out to Jennifer Orr on the dimly lit Texas Capitol lawn, he had no idea the moment would go viral within a matter of days.
Yards from the couple stood photographer Patrick Lu with a camera. He noticed the strangers just in time to snap a candid photo of the exact moment that Bush proposed.
Lu, UT senior and computer sciences major, posted the photo on the Austin Reddit forum, asking, “Did any of you propose at the capital last night?” hoping to identify the mystery couple. The photo became a hit, garnering thousands of views and likes.
According to Mashable, the couple met with the photographer and will have the moment framed and on the wall of their new home soon.
