Squirrel Knew The Couple Were Ready For A Photoshoot. So He Did This! LOL

A couple celebrating their engagement with a photo shoot in Banff National Park got a little more than they bargained for when a curious local resident popped by!


Kelin Flanagan and Spencer Taubner were having some romantic shots taken on August 6th by Marcin and Dorota Karpowicz of BDFK Photography at the incredibly scenic spot in Alberta, Canada. They had originally planned on hiking up to Helen Lake and Cirque Peak for the shoot, where they would change from their hiking outfits into something a bit fancier. However, bad weather set in they were forced to turn around, but tried to make the best of the situation by taking some snaps on their way down.
Photographer Marcin told The Huffington Post: “On our way back we saw a nice spot for the photos ― a kind of stony area. When we started shooting, the squirrel showed up.”

Although some have accused the hilarious snap of being a photoshop creation, the photographers confirmed that it is indeed genuine. “The aperture was 5.6 in order to see the kissing couple in light blur, but still recognisable.” Marcin said. “I also added the sharpness in Lightroom/Photoshop in order to make the squirrel pop more. I used the Kodak Ektachrome film preset in order to tone down the colors.”

It seems the once-in-a-lifetime snap made up for the day’s earlier failure, as the couple were delighted with their photobomb photo!
Kelin told The Huffington Post “We couldn’t believe it! We love taking ridiculous-looking photos ― I can’t count the number of selfies we have of us making silly faces ― and we did not expect that we’d end up with such a funny, wonderful picture out of a more romantic photo shoot.”

It could be said that the resulting photos actually suit the couple rather well, thanks to their more unconventional approach to their engagement. “We [just] talked about getting married and decided it was a great idea,” Kelin said. “We designed a Claddagh ring with an amazing jeweler, and we both have worn Claddaghs throughout our engagement.”
The couple are set to tie the knot on September 10 after ten years of dating. They’ll definitely have a hard time getting wedding shots as impressive as this, though!
