Dave Chappelle Photobombs Engagement Shoot

Dave Chappelle Photobombs Engagement Shoot

Photobombing during client shoots is usually annoying and unwanted, but not when its Dave Chappelle making an appearance. 

This weekend portrait and wedding photographer Jaycee Brammer was in the middle of an engagement shoot at an Ohio brewery when Dave Chappelle showed up. After the initial surprise of Chappelle showing up to the bar, the photographer and couple, Thomas Saunders and Emily Eldridge, continued outside to finish the engagement session.  

While shooting, the couple noticed Chappelle walk outside in their vicinity: they are longtime fans of the comedian, so wanted to politely request a photo together.  Saunders ventured over to ask, but he wasn't surprised when Chappelle politely declined. The two started to chat about "The Chappelle Show" and Saunders' travels in the Air Force as a Technical Sergeant. The couple got back to their shoot, and Chappelle quickly changed his mind about the photo after learning of Saunders service to the country.

Although he isn't the biggest fan of being photographed, Chappelle said:  "I'm going to photobomb you guys". All of their days were made when he did.  Brammer showed the images to Chappelle, he predicted they'd go viral, and he was right.

One of the greatest comedians of the past few decades. I'm a little envious you get to listen to all of his work for the first time. Definitely worth a listen to!

I would have still been annoyed.

Luckily Dave is a nice guy and doesn't get annoyed by photo requests.

Yes! I read that he doesn't jump in them often though

Dave Chappelle has the best version of doing Lil Jon's WHHATTTT?? even better than Lil Jon himself.
