No matter how you decide to set them up, engagement photos are special shots that you'll have forever—yes, even long after they make the rounds on Instagram and Facebook. And one couple recently got an even more special engagement shoot than they bargained for when they were photobombed by Dave Chapelle.

According to Yahoo Finance, photographer Jaycee Brammer (@jayceemariephoto) was shooting photos of Thomas Saunders and Emily Eldridge at a brewery in Yellow Springs, Ohio, on November 10, when her husband turned to her and said, "Dave Chappelle just walked in."

It was, in fact, the legendary comedian, leaving the couple immediately "starstruck" in the midst of their shoot. They reportedly chatted with Chappelle for a bit, but when they asked him to pose for a photo he politely declined.

“I really wasn’t surprised, because I had heard he wasn’t much for photos,” Brammer told Yahoo. “We all totally understood, and Dave chatted with Tommy for a few minutes.”

Thankfully, they were able to capture a few shots with him in the frame, anyway. The photographer posted the resulting images to Facebook with an explanation of exactly what went down. "So, I was shooting this engagement session at a brewery tonight and this dude photobombed us... idk, you may have heard of him. Dave something?? LOL NO FOR REAL GUYS! THE Dave Chappelle photobombed our shoot, she wrote."I’m going to have to quit photography now because how will I ever beat this? I just can’t. HUGE shoutout to the man himself. He was so nice and truly made our day. I think it’s safe to say Emily + Tommy have the coolest engagement photos EVER."

She continued, "Is anyone else DYING over this? Because I am 😆."

Chappelle is hardly the first celebrity to photobomb a happy couple. Comedian Amy Schumer, for one, has made quite the habit of it: She snuck into a couple's Central Park photoshoot just last month, and in 2017, she even photobombed a wedding photoshoot in London.
