(NBCBAYAREA) — This wedding snapshot just might put every other couples' big day photos to shame.
Photographer Mike Karas of Hawaii was simply enjoying the sunset when he says he happened to be in the right place at the right time. As a newlywed couple emerged from the shadows, Karas snapped a once-in-a-lifetime photo of the unidentified duo as they embraced on top of a cliff in Yosemite with the golden sun setting behind them.
The unforgettable moment turned out to be one of Karas's favorite photos that he has ever captured.

"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."
