Deer crashing a wedding photo shoot
u/pdxscout 15d ago
That is the cleanest looking deer I've ever seen. Looks like he was shampooed that morning. The ones in my fields are gnarly looking.
u/kniselydone 14d ago
Looks pretty young...might still be licked clean by other deer 🥺
But more likely than that it is the wedding photographer editing helping out.→ More replies (2)
u/pdxscout 14d ago
Judging by the antler spread, it's probably around 2 and some years change. I don't think it'd still be groomed regularly by mom.
But for some reason I didn't even think about the answer you came up with! It's probably the wedding photographer's editing skills. I think you nailed it.
u/spunds 14d ago
You'd be surprised. In some rare cases, the mother continues to exhibit maternal behaviors toward her offspring if the child can't provide for itself. For example, I was breastfed until I was fourteen years old.

I love how the top two comments are somehow surprised that a deer being used in a highly produced set of wedding photos is a… tame pet deer?
I guess it’s because OP (who stole this post) decided to use the word “crashing”
u/RadicalDog 14d ago
I enjoy the confidence redditors express at calling this obviously fake, when now an article has been linked where the couple and photographer talk more about the photobombing deer.
Take the million wedding photography sessions every year, and share the absolute most interesting one. I'm not surprised that it's something seemingly impossible.
u/anotherwave1 14d ago
Exactly. The couple probably had photos taken with tame deer. The things people will do for internet points.→ More replies (3)

Poor couple probably had no idea their wedding photos would be posted all Reddit for karma. Lol

u/saveable 14d ago
My bet is that the deer was supposed to be a part of the shoot. Eating the bouquet was probably a deer ad lib.
u/Lindvaettr 14d ago
Idk, there are dozens of deer living in my neighborhood (connected to a woodland) and they're nice and clean→ More replies (11)

Here is the source of this image. Here are six more pictures from this series. Credit to the photographer, Laurenda Bennet (of Laurenda Marie Photography), who took this in Felt East Estate in Holland Michigan on September 1, 2019.
Edit: Here are even more pictures of this.

Deer looks a little less .. magical?.. without all that photoshop done to its fur. Looks kinda scrappy actually lol

I've been to a wedding at Felt Mansion before. There were no farm raised deer on the property to stage this. Beautiful venue.→ More replies (4)

Why are all these so blurry? There’s no sharpness on any of the photos.→ More replies (7)
u/Inner-Bread 14d ago
Looks like someone downloaded low res jpegs from insta. Zoomed in and couldn’t see a missed focus spot and the one of the photographer done on a iPhone looks just as blurred.

Fun fact: Deer are the deadliest animal in America.
Although, sadly, its mostly because people hit them with their car and lose control.
Aww...this got dark.
u/thePZ 14d ago
What kind of list is this lol?
Says alligators kill ~1 person a year, ranked #9
Sharks kill ~0.5 people a year, ranked #10
Cougars have killed 27 people in the past 100 years, an average of ~0.27 people a year, ranked #8→ More replies (1)
u/TwistBallista 14d ago
Not to mention it says crocodiles are deadlier than alligators, and it doesn't include crocodiles at all
u/kelryngrey 14d ago
I'm not even sure the US has had an American Crocodile fatality recently. There are only about 2000 of the things in the US and they're all in South Florida.→ More replies (1)
u/fredbrightfrog 14d ago
Crocs are much more aggressive, but there's like 1000 times more alligators in the US than crocodiles so it's far rarer to stumble upon one.
Similar to the point above, deer aren't really that dangerous there's just a shitload of them.
u/cinnamonface9 14d ago
It’s kinda where you hit them. On the dark roads
u/WineNerdAndProud 14d ago
Deer still getting hit by cars is proof that evolution isn't instantaneous.

If they'd only stop jaywalking and cross at the appropriate signage, it would be less of a problem.

Deer existing like they did forever. Gets hit by a metal block doing 70mph on a dark road.
And we blame the deer.→ More replies (18)
u/Dopedandyduddette 14d ago
Yeah, it’s the deer that is deadly, not the person barreling down a backroad at 70mph lol
u/I_Like_Quiet 14d ago
Doesn't have to be a back road. Have you never seen a dead deer on the interstate?

u/White_Disco 14d ago
Deer have excellent low-light vision, allowing them to navigate in dimly lit environments. However, their eyes are adapted to detect motion rather than details. When headlights or other vehicle lights approach, the deer may become confused and perceive the lights as a threat or potential predator. This can cause them to freeze momentarily or panic and run, sometimes into the road. Their eyes are on the sides of their head and not forward facing like us it has nothing to do with their intelligence why they get hit more with how they haven't evolved the eyesight to understand a object bright as the sun rocketing what looks like directly twards them.→ More replies (2)→ More replies (6)

u/damontoo 14d ago
Seems engineered, right? It's not but it seems like it could be.
I was just reading about a cannabis disease that's infected 90% of weed plants in California. It's not dangerous to humans, but it goes undetected until immediately before harvest where it then causes buds to shrivel so yields are substantially less, and THC content to be cut by 50%. I thought that sounded engineered too since it's like a gift from god for anti-legalization people. But the disease actually comes from hop plants in the 80's.

C'mon guys. I can't even try to suspend belief that this is a wild deer just strolling up and eating out of this person's hand. Either it's staged or that's a routinely hand fed deer. Look how clean it is.

This is a first. I have seen bridesmaids, best man, but never a best deer as part of a wedding.

Hope he loves those flowers. Those are expensive. (Priceless picture tho)

Worth it! If I had to choose between a deer or flowers in my wedding photo, I’d definitely choose the deer. They got both!

We had kookaburras at our wedding. The photographers got some cool pictures too.
Then after the ceremony, my wife and I went to go get our pictures done and some of the guests had lost their food right out of their hands thanks to said kookaburras.

I wonder if this is a place where the deer are used to being fed by humans. I've never seen a wild deer approach so closely.
Edit: It was an unusual wild deer that somehow lost its fear of humans (probably because someone was feeding it):
Thanks to u/margery-meanwell for providing the link.
