Not bad as a wedding picture. Especially since it was not taken by the official wedding photographer.
Mike Karas, an amateur photographer who lives in Hawaii, was visiting Yosemite National Park in California last week and headed up the trail to Taft Point, a popular look-out spot. When he reached there, he spotted something stunning; a couple of newlyweds posing for pictures.
Mr Karas decided to take out his camera and capture some images himself.
“I was just snapping away trying to get them,” Mr Karas told the Oregonian.
“It was just unbelievable. The sunset that night was awesome.”
But Mr Karas had no idea who the couple in the distance were, and he hoped that by posting the image on social media he could find out. After all, he thought, they might like to see their photograph.
“It was surreal,” he said. “We had seen the bride and groom walking down, but all of a sudden we saw them out on the ledge as we were shooting other photos and that “Eureka!” moment just unfolded.”
Mr Karas posted the image on Instagram and Facebook in hope of hunting down the couple.
“Thanks for adding to an already amazing sunset photo opportunity and I would love to be able to share this with you,” he wrote “As much of an amazing moment it was for me to capture, it was clearly an even more special moment in your life.”
