He Took 150 Photos With His Girlfriend, But She Didn’t Notice The Hidden Message.

For some people, it takes a few times, and the lucky ones need only ask once. And then there are the true outliers. Ray Smith, 30, of Grimsby proposed to his girlfriend nearly 150 times. In a series of 148 photos taken over a span of five months, Smith hid a sign with the words, "Will you marry me" somewhere in the background.

His leading lady, Claire Bramley, didn't catch on. Don't be too quick to call her oblivious; she has been busy preparing for their baby since discovering that she was pregnant last June. According to Metro, it was around that same time that Smith came up with the idea.

Smith initially told Bramley that he would be taking pictures to "track the progress of the baby." To be safe, he always took at least two shots -- one with the sign and one without. Finally, on Christmas morning, he popped the question.

It's amazing how long Ray kept it up without his girlfriend finding out, considering how busy they must have been preparing for the baby!

On Christmas morning, Ray set the photos up on a laptop, got down on one knee, and popped the question. Although Claire was surprised, she stated that the nature of the proposal was "exactly the kind of thing he does." Claire responded with an immediate, "Yes."
