MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A Milwaukee couple will never forget who shot the photos during a surprise marriage proposal and a chance encounter on a Florida beach.

Tim Schlosser was planning to propose to his longtime girlfriend, Abigail Kobriger, during their vacation on Marco Island. He planned to look for a random person on the beach to take some photos.

As the couple walked along the beach, Schlosser spotted a man with a familiar stature. As a Green Bay Packers fan, Schlosser says he knew it was Coach Mike McCarthy.

The couple asked McCarthy if he would pose for a picture. Then Schlosser asked the coach to take a photo of them. McCarthy obliged, Schlosser got down on one knee and pulled out a ring. A tearful Abigail said yes.

McCarthy remarked how "cool" it was to shoot their special moment.
