Just recently we came across a video on CNN that showed a drone delivering a college acceptance letter to a kid, prompting us to go back into our archives and pull out a blast from the past to share on the blog. 

In other words, CNN, we did this several years ago, and the proof lies in the video at the top. Back in 2015, we headed to Malibu, CA and fired up our DJI Inspire 1 to help out with a pretty creative marriage proposal on the beach.

The plan was pretty simple: Hirmand invited his girlfriend Negin to the beach for a relaxed couple photo shoot. One of our shooters posed as the photog, using a Canon 5D Mark III with a 70-200mm lens to capture all the action from the ground. 

I myself kept a safe distance. After attaching the small box with the engagement ring inside to the bottom of the Inspire 1, I took off and proceeded to fly the drone to the couple's spot. Check out the video above to find out what happened next.
