To immortalise this special time, Dan and Angeline Mozer went to the seaside for a photoshoot. But they could not have anticipated the guest that turned up for a starring role.
When they came to this part of the beach in Jacksonville in Florida, the American couple received the most beautiful surprise of their lives. It seems like this isn't the first time someone has become internet famous following an innocent photo celebrating a momentous occasion!
Capturing the perfect photo
The story behind Dan and Angeline's perfect photo first gained traction in 2016 and the image has been living rent free, as they say, in our heads since then.
Dan told Yahoo Parenting what happened on that fine day saying that he wanted to take a picture of his wife against the backdrop of the coastline. He said:
Someone started yelling to us that there were dolphins, and we could see their dorsal fins
Then, out of nowhere, this thing just jumps out of the water.
It looks like the dolphin jumped at the right moment when Dan was ready to click. Unfortunately for his wife, she was unable to see what was happening behind her back. But at least there's proof!
Dan then shared the photo with their local news channel News4Jaxand the rest is history. The publication posted it on their social media and the likes started rolling in. They said in their caption:
A once in a lifetime shot. Viewer Dan Mozer shared this image of his wife Angeline as they were taking maternity shots at Atlantic Beach. #Dolphinphotobomb
Naturally, the comments blew up with netizens who were amazed at the stunning click.
