Laurenda, who is a self-taught photographer of 5 years, revealed to Bored Panda that the photo session with the deer was completely unplanned.

“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.”

The photographer 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.”

“We walked away for about 15 minutes to finish up our portraits and when we came back, the deer was gone but there was 1 white rose still intact. Morgan joked it was like the final rose from The Bachelor.”

The deer was particularly interested in the bride’s bouquet, which was made by Melissa Anne

Laurenda admitted that “nothing has remotely come to being as cool as this moment was,” but she did joke about one photo session where there was a “seagull flying in the background.”

The photographer also shared what her philosophy for work and life is: “Look up and live in the moment. The most interesting and memorable parts of your story are likely not written in your calendar.”

She also had this to say: “We are grateful to be sharing such a unique circumstance with the world. All the positive comments and feedback have been humbling.”
