Wedding photographer Wan wanted to give his girlfriend a special surprise after four years of dating. Using his expertise behind the camera he chose to photoshop himself into her childhood photos.
On the micro-blogging website Weibo he writes, “I am sorry I don’t have a surprise for you, because I believe staying with you in the past four years is the biggest surprise.”
The romantic gesture has been called “creepy” by some viral posting websites, and we have to agree, although it was still a sweet thought.
