Mike Karas of Hawaii photographed the mystery couple Thursday at Taft Point along the Pohono Trail, KNTV reported.

"It was surreal," he told the news station. "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."

He and his group shared the trail to Taft Point with the couple as they posed for their wedding photos earlier that day, according to The Oregonian.

"It was just unbelievable," he told the newspaper. "The sunset that night was awesome."

By the time he finished taking his photos, the couple had vanished and Karas was left without any indication of the pair's identity. He posted the photo to Instagram and other friends shared it on Facebook in the hope of tracking down the couple.
