Taco Bell + Nathaniel = Love.

The 18-year-old's photos were shared on Twitter where they went viral.

Smith's photos feature the student blissfully posing with tacos, eating a taco and laying among Taco Bell hot sauces, along with other shots. Smith told The Huffington Post that he's always loved the fast food chain -- so much so that his family bought him $80 worth of gift cards to the franchise for Christmas. When it came time to take senior pictures, it was appropriate that he make his true boo a part of those important shots. 

This is what love looks like.

"A good friend of mine Cassidy Roberts took the photos ... she loves taking couple's pictures," he told HuffPost. "So she had the bright idea of taking tacos [and] getting pictures with them."

Since the photos went viral, Smith says he's received hilarious reactions from people around the Internet, as well as his own school. In fact, students have been joking around with Smith on his newfound fame, asking him for autographs.

While the pictures are definitely a hoot, the teen wants to show people that they shouldn't be afraid to show who they are and embrace their quirky sides. 

They clearly have great chemistry.

"For anyone who reads this story and thinks it's silly or stupid that's fine. I just encourage others to do what makes them happy," Smith said. "Either way in life, regardless of your actions, some people will like you and some won't. Do what makes you happy and don't worry about what others think!"
