AUSTIN (KXAN) — A couple managed to score some stunning photos on their wedding day, thanks to an amazing backdrop. Ian Christmann is the photographer who took these shots, appropriately titling the group of pictures on his website: “Deerly beloved.”

Christmann says it happened during a backyard wedding in New Jersey. He saw the deer gathering and grabbed the couple mid-dinner for the impromptu shoot. While he hoped to catch a couple of the fawns, he ended up with an even better scenario. A herd of deer appeared at the edge of the woods.

“The deer were quite jittery as we approached, so I didn’t expect that we would be able to get so close!” said Christmann.

For those wondering, Christmann says he did not use Photoshop. Mother Nature provided the elements for the product that has now been seen more than 3 million times in 24 hours.
