Amy Schumer is showing up everywhere lately! First, she pranks Kimye on the red carpet. Then, a few weeks ago, she crashes Kaitlyn Bristowe’s group date onThe Bachelorette. And now, she’s photobombing engagement shoots.
Grooms-to-be Joseph Turnage and Brandon Moore were snapping sweet engagement photos in Central Park with their photographer Alisha Siegel when the funny woman (and consummate prankster) Amy Schumer ran by on a jog. Naturally, the comedian stopped and had to get in on the action. Schumer screamed out: “Oh my god! Are you taking engagement photos? Let me get in one!” Siegel told People of the run-in.
“I thought it was a little weird but I said yes anyways,” the photographer continued. “She took off her sunglasses, we snapped a quick pic, and right after she says, ‘You guys know I’m like reeeeeeal famous.’ I take another look it hit me that it was Amy Schumer!”
The whole thing was pretty shocking, Siegel admits. Especially since they all didn’t realize it was Amy until she said so! “My face went totally blank and I said, ‘Oh my god! Amy! I love you!’ Needless to say I was pretty excited,” Siegel said of the shoot’s cameo.
The couple themselves — who will be exchanging vows in Manhattan this October — were equally flabbergasted by Schumer’s surprise appearance.
On her website’s blog post about the engagement shoot, Siegel also elaborated that this couple is extra special. “Maybe it was the cocktails we had beforehand, or the fact that Amy Schumer insisted she get in a photo,” she wrote. “Whatever it was, the day seemed to be magical, natural, and so much fun. I cannot wait to photograph their wedding day in October…it is going to be a seriously special night, I can already feel it.”
We’re gunning for Schumer to show up for another cameo!
