Engagement pictures traditionally bring to mind all sorts of romantic things. An idyllic setting? Naturally. Loving looks between the happy couple? Of course. A life-and-death struggle with a flesh-eating zombie? Er, not so much.

In Juliana Park and Ben Lee’s engagement photos, the couple don’t just grin and smooch for the camera, they battle an undead corpse with a machete and shovel.

The photos, which were taken by Los Angeles photographer Amanda Rynda and posted online last week, went viral after being picked up by Reddit and have made the couple something of an internet sensation.
