If you’re reading this, there’s no doubt you are well aware of the Internet’s obsession with raccoons. Scavengers by nature, raccoons spend their life looking for food. As a result, they often find themselves in trash cans or paws deep in your pet’s feeder. And when you think raccoons simply cannot get any more mischievous than that, the Internet provides yet another story that proves otherwise.
A couple’s wedding photoshoot was recently crashed by a family of raccoons
Newlywed couple, Sarah and Zach, were having a photo shoot in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. The weather was perfect, the scenery was beyond words, and the couple is simply adorable—everything that you could have ever thought of to make wedding photos memorable was there.
Then, all of a sudden, a wild raccoon family appears. Yes, a family of 5 trash pandas crashed the photoshoot, making the day all the more memorable for the young newlyweds.
Bored Panda got in touch with Kathryn White, the professional photographer from Northern California who did Sarah and Zach’s photoshoot. White explained that she had seen nothing like this throughout the 10 years that she was doing wedding photoshoots.
“We were so surprised to see the family of raccoons approaching us! At first, I was a bit scared because they’re nocturnal & generally pretty vicious, so I warned my bride & groom to keep a distance, but the raccoons kept approaching us curiously, and seemed friendly enough!” said White.
Of course, White started taking pictures—it was a moment that she simply couldn’t miss. White continued, “I started taking photos of the encounter, and then they walked away from us on the path as we laughed at the randomness of it all… I mean, what are the chances?! We all decided it was like a ‘real-life Disney moment’ and must be a good omen.”
Needless to say, people were charmed by this and of course, it went viral. Kathryn White said to Bored Panda that everyone loved this random encounter, as well as the bride’s unique dress and, of course, the lovable gaze of the raccoons.
