By    |   Monday, 07 Jul 2014 08:56 PM

Wedding photos of a happy couple with a tornado touching down in the distance are going viral online, and stirring up a little bit of controversy, too.

Wedding photographer Colleen Niska posted the photos on her Facebook page, showing a couple in tux and wedding dress walking hand-in-hand on a dirt road in Saskatchewan, Canada. In the background is a thin tornado dominating a dark, storm-ridden sky.

As one person wrote on Niska’s Facebook page, it’s the ultimate Mother Nature photobomb.

While many loved the stunning photos, some people didn’t hold back their disgust that the couple and the photographer didn’t call off the shoot and seek cover. “Pretty cool! I, however did start to think about the people worried for their lives, their homes and their way of life being destroyed and yet here's two people taking pictures in front of that tornado to celebrate their marriage,” one person commented on FB. “It's a bit dark and messed up. Beautiful though too.”

But another was quick to point out that it would be easy to look at everything and think of tragedies — such as ocean waves and drowning.

Niska, though, was clearly thrilled with her unique photos. She posted with the pics, “I’ve dreamed about a day like this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Could NOT wait to post these! Pretty sure this will only happen once in my lifetime!”

Many lauded Niska for her capture of the stark beauty of the tornado, and some even likened it to the idea of the struggles and beauty of marriage.

“Great photos!! When I see these pics I feel it is saying ‘the storm is behind us and together we can get through anything as long as we have each other!!’ one person wrote.

“I live in Oklahoma and when the sirens go off I get the hell inside. Its a beautiful photo. But I would have had a heart attack,” another woman added.

CTV News confirmed that two tornadoes touched down about an hour away from where the couple was shooting on Saturday.
