‘Follow me’ series culminates in a proposal, and she says ‘yes’

After touring the world together for three years, Russian photographer Murad Osmann finally proposed to his girlfriend Nataly Zakharova, creating another sensation in his “Follow Me” series.

“She said YES!!!” Osmann said on Instagram on July 9, a post that has generated more than 300,000 likes in 10 days.

In the picture, instead of holding his girlfriend’s hand, Osmann is seen holding a ring behind Zakharova.

Over the last three years, more than one million people have followed the couple around the world, with Zakharova leading the lensman by the hand in every shot.

Osmann started the “Follow Me” project by accident while on a holiday in Barcelona. Zakharova, tired of him constantly stopping to take pictures, pulled him by the hand to get him moving. He snapped a photo of her from behind and an Instagram sensation was born.

The couple also visited Hong Kong for a week in May, and they took in more than 10 Hong Kong attractions, including a trip to the Big Buddha, a tram tour and a junk boat ride. All the while, Osmann will snap away as Zakharova takes the lead.
