CHARLESTON, S.C., June 12 (UPI) -- Bill Murray: actor, orator... engagement photo crasher?

Two weeks after the 63-year-old actor made an impromptu speech at a bachelor party, a Charleston photographer has revealed the star surprised his clients during their engagement photo shoot in April.

Raheel Gauba of Fia Forever Photography posted a photo of Ashley Donald and Erik Rogers with Murray on Facebook earlier this week.


"We were walking around downtown Charleston, taking in the romance of the city and enjoying the scenery," Gauba relays to the Huffington Post. "I found this staircase and asked the couple to go get comfortable."

"When I set up Ashley and Erik, I saw this look of surprise on their faces as they looked over my shoulder," he continues. "I asked them to look at the camera, but they just looked stunned and with his eyes, Erik motioned that I better look behind me. As I turned around to potentially ask the person distracting them to give us a moment, I see Bill Murray with his shirt up, belly out and patting it -- his attempt to make the couple laugh."

"I joined the couple in the shock and the surprise of the moment," he concludes. "At that point, I invited him to join the couple for a quick shot and he did. So genuine and nice of him to make the couple's day!"

Murray will next appear in St. Vincent on October 24.
