Time-lapse video captures engagement on Blue Bridge

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — An amateur photographer shooting a time-lapse video of the Blue Bridge in Grand Rapids caught an engagement on camera and then went on a quest to find the couple.

Hundreds of people walk the bridge every day, and that was what Karl Blessing was trying to capture — the pulse of the city as ArtPrize was winding down on Friday, Oct. 7. Blessing set up his camera at the end of the bridge, capturing the world as it passed by him.

“It was a 30-minute time-lapse. I figured, you know, down here it’s just after ArtPrize — there’s a lot of foot traffic down here,” Blessing said.

After he waited, the big reveal.

“I was like wait is that a proposal? Sure enough it was,” said Blessing. “I edited the video later just because I saw the proposal, thought it’d be great to slow it down right here.”
