Talk about a photobomb. Sometimes, even if you’re in the middle of your once-in-a-lifetime wedding photos, you have to let uninvited guests be part of the shoot.
That’s exactly what happened when newlyweds Morgan and Luke were interrupted by a deer that wanted to see what was going on with these two dressed-up people who happened upon its territory.

The incredibly beautiful and very irresistible bouquet by @melissaannefloralco. // Friday night thoughts. I am just here taking a moment to sit and reflect on everything that’s transpired in these last 4 days. Today I had interviews with reporters from MSN, Yahoo, and Huffington Post. I mean, did I even just type that? Going viral for my craft, something I pour my heart into, is such an incredible blessing. I am just waiting for someone to wake me up. When the journalist from Yahoo today asked me how it feels to have gone viral I responded with “thankful”. But really…is this even happening?! I have brief moments where I’ve forgotten, then I open my phone to an explosion of notifications. Inbetween calls with these reporters I folded laundry, swept the floors, and took a walk with my boy. I am so grateful my work is being seen and positively acknowledged by so many eyes but really I am just the same girl over here going about my life. 🤷🏼♀️ Oh man, what wild a ride. . . . . . . . . . . . . #Laurendamariephotography #risingtide #dreamchaserswithcameras #grandrapidsweddingphotographer #westmichiganweddingphotographer #theprettyblog #stylemepretty #laurendamariebrides #communityovercompetition #momprenuer #lookslikefilm #californiaweddings #naturallightphotographer #lightandairy #naturallightphotography #michiganweddingphotographer #lemonadeandlenses #kindredpresets #thatsdarling #calledtobecreative #hollandmiweddingphotographer #bridaldetails #santabarbaraweddingphotographer #filmphotography

A photographer named Laurenda Bennett was snapping photos that day and she just ended up going with the flow, which is probably a good idea in her line of work.
Bennett explained, “The bride wanted photos over in a field on the same grounds as her ceremony and reception, so we headed that way after dinner for their golden hour photos. Well, it was very overcast that day and we didn’t have a true golden hour, but what happened instead trumped that pretty light we were hoping for.”
That’s when the deer wandered into the photoshoot and ended up being part of Morgan and Luke’s special day.
Bennett continued, “When we reached the field, we saw him. He was grazing behind a little white fence and as soon as we were in view, he walked right up to Morgan and Luke. He was very interested in Morgan’s bouquet and without any hesitation, walks right over the fence on a quest to consume her pretty florals. He was pulling roses out one by one. Morgan and Luke raised the bouquet a few times and he would jump up for it. I’m just in front of them snapping away, instinctively. Eventually, Morgan drops the bouquet, giving it up to the deer.”
Here are some more touching photos with the deer.
What an unexpected surprise!
