A SWAT officer’s engagement photos took the internet by storm

It is little wonder why this set of bridal photos, celebrating the union of a Chinese couple, went viral over the weekend in China.

According to China’s state media Xinhua, the photos became widely circulated after the groom’s employer – the Chongqing Special Police Corp – posted the photos onto Weibo, China’s version of Twitter, last Friday.

Hou Weilin, the groom is a SWAT officer and due to the nature of his job which requires him to be on standby 24/7, he has been unable to take wedding pictures with his fiancee in a professional studio. Therefore, the couple decided to opt for a photoshoot in the groom’s work setting and the end result, is a collection of photos that is uniquely theirs.
