The Saugatuck Buck strikes again.
Austin Swiercz and Dori Anne were taking engagement photos in Saugatuck Dunes State Park in Michigan when the infamous deer known as the Saugatuck Buck photobombed their session. It’s the second time this month the mischievous buck has crashed a couple’s romantic photoshoot.
The deer is something of a local celebrity known for being friendly and unafraid of approaching people. The Michigan Department of Natural Resources instructed people to keep their distance, but it can’t seem to stay away from romantic photoshoots. Just last week, the Saugatuck Buck photobombed a different couple’s romantic beachside proposal.
Photographer Eldina Kovacevic said the deer snuck up behind the engaged couple as she was snapping photos.
“As I was shooting away, I noticed the deer slowly getting closer and closer to Dori and Austin, where at this point it was right behind them, so I said to them, ‘You guys, the deer is right behind you, stay calm and just focus on one another,'” she told INSIDER. “The deer was directly behind them and started to sniff Austin’s shoulder. He was so close that they felt his breath over his shoulder.”
They were nervous about how the deer would behave, but a nearby group told them that it was the Saugatuck Buck known for being docile and affectionate.
“As soon as we heard this, our hearts immediately were put at ease and we continued to use him as a prop in the background,” Kovacevic said. “He stuck around us for about 10 minutes and then just went about his day!”
Kovacevic also seized the opportunity to stage romantic snapshots of the couple featuring the deer, and people can’t get enough. The photos have since been shared over 51,000 times on Facebook.
