Like many teens, Riley Papile wanted something special to remember her senior prom by. So the Hatboro-Horsham High School decided to enlist photographer Rachel Beck to take photos of her and her girlfriend Abby Creneti in iconic locations around their hometown.
As they wrapped up their day of picture taking, Beck surprised the couple by taking them to a final location that’s especially meaningful to them: the local Taco Bell.
“We started outside the building and several of the employees came outside to see what we were up to. They thought it was pretty funny,” she told INSIDER.
Since the employees were cool with it, the couple moved their photo shoot inside where they not only snapped some cute pictures, but also grabbed a snack.
“It was super funny because I’m a familiar face to many of the employees there, so they were all laughing,” she said of the experience. “My girlfriend Abby and I got a lot of weird stares from the customers because we were in the middle of a fast food restaurant in gowns.”
Sadly, their shoot got cut short. “It got busy right as we were about to take more photos, otherwise we would have taken a whole group shot of us and all of the employees,” Papile explained.
But the teen suspects their post-prom plans will probably involve a trip back to Taco Bell. Papile will have her usual, of course. “A combo 8 (three tacos) with soft shells, no lettuce, and a large Sierra Mist. $6.03,” she said of her go-to order. “A pretty sweet deal if you ask me.”
