A teen couple in Senoia, Georgia, hired a professional to take photos before their prom. Fans of "The Walking Dead" know Senoia serves as the show's fictional town of Alexandria. As Stephanie Smith began taking photos, zombies - or walkers, as they're called on the show - came strolling by. “They walked directly in front of the camera,” Smith said. “I kept shooting because it was so funny.” The couple and photography were able to get priceless photos without being bitten.

“It was just a typical shoot in Senoia. We were hitting all the usual spots for prom pictures,” Smith said. 

Smith said she found the perfect spot to take the couple’s prom photos and made sure to avoid shooting the wall that had been built around several homes for the television show ahead of shooting for Season 3.
