This guy dropped marriage hints over the course of 148 photos!
Ray Smith from the UK had a 5 month project going where he slipped the words Will you marry me? into photos of him and his pregnant girlfriend, Claire.

Finally, as Christmas approached, it was time
It was all a bit chaotic on Christmas Day morning so I took her away and set it all up on the laptop. I got down on one knee and gave her a bit of spiel, and then popped the question
