Woman who thinks she's taking a photo gets picture-perfect proposal

(ABC) -- A picture-loving woman thought her boyfriend was taking another Instagram-worthy snap when she later realized he was actually proposing.

Kayleigh Fahey and James Regatuso had just returned from a trip to Bali and Indonesia. The bride-to-be admitted to ABC News that she had thought Ragatuso, 30, would pop the question there.

"But I thought it'd be cheesy to do it overseas," he said.

Instead, he picked a park that they had frequented many times throughout their relationship -- Letchworth State Park in Castile, New York.

"It's just in our home town so we have a lot of history there," Ragatuso explained.

The two high school sweethearts reunited back in 2004 after splitting up. In fact, it was after Ragatuso was diagnosed with a heart condition that he decided to reach back out to his high school girlfriend, who had made a career as a nurse practitioner in cardiology.

Ragatuso admitted that he didn't know exactly where in the park he wanted to get down on one knee last Sunday.

"But when I looked up, I saw we had a good backdrop. I told her that we were going to take some pictures," he detailed. But instead, Ragatuso started a video to capture the heartwarming moment.

"I was absolutely shocked when I turned around and he was down on one knee," Fahey, 31, said. "Never did I think it would end up being the most meaningful moment of our lives."

A video of that moment has gone viral on Instagram, with more than 32,000 views.
