Dave Chappelle made this couple's day.
How often do your engagement photos get photobombed by famous comedians?
Here’s how the awesome day came to be:
Emily Eldridge and Thomas Saunders were having a photoshoot for their recent engagement at the Yellow Springs Brewery in Yellow Springs, Ohio. That’s when their photographer, Jaycee Brammer, saw Dave Chappelle walk in.
Chappelle lives on a farm in the town, but they never expected to see him!
Brammer told Yahoo Lifestyle about the encounter. “My husband, Nick, said, ‘Dave Chappelle just walked in.’ I think we were all a little starstruck and shocked. We knew he was from the area but never expected to see him."
The group had a brief fan-girl moment.
I kept my cool as we walked past him to go outside to the patio, even though I really wanted to fan-girl it up!" Brammer said. Saunders felt the same, adding, “Emily and I have always been fans of Dave Chappelle. I grew up quoting his show."
So, they took a chance.
“We set up outside and started snapping photos when Dave walked out. He stood about 20 feet from us, and we just kind of looked at each other like, ‘Wait, is this really happening?’" said Brammer. “I looked at Tommy and I basically said, ‘We should just ask politely. We have to at least try, right?’"
Chappelle initially “politely declined" to be in the photoshoot.
“I really wasn’t surprised because I had heard he wasn’t much for photos. We all totally understood, and Dave chatted with Tommy for a few minutes," Brammer said of the encounter. Saunders and Chappelle spoke about travel, and Saunders’ military history, as he has been in the Air Force since 2010.
Something in the conversation changed Chappelle’s mind.
“We went back to taking pictures, and not long after he came around and said, ‘I’m gonna photobomb you guys.’ Emily and I couldn’t hold it together, and we were incredibly grateful for him making an exception for us," Saunders said.
Chappelle enjoyed the shoot, too.
“He laughed after photobombing us and stepped back so we could finish," said Brammer. “After that we were all pretty much shocked and couldn’t believe what just happened. We reviewed the photos, and I walked over to show Dave. He laughed and said, ‘We’re gonna go viral, man.’"
And he was right!
I love that @DaveChappelle did this! My favorite story to write today! https://t.co/D9VpCzTbEz— Lisa Respers France (@Lisa Respers France)1542130688.0
