You know how in rom-coms, the male lead gets a number (without asking) from the cute female barista? In Mark's case, he had to try a little harder. He first spotted Taylor behind the counter at Heine Brothers during a college study session. After a while of pursuing Taylor ("stalking," she jokes), she agreed to a date. But though the connection was real, they both knew it wasn't the right time and called it quits. Taylor even moved out of town. A decade later, their paths crossed again. Both Mark and Taylor were in different places in life and careers. And the connection, the spark, the camaraderie was still there. So in 2020, these two tried again. And this time, it stuck - they're getting married January 2022. But for now, here are their engagement photos, taken at the same park Mark proposed. Wait - maybe this is a rom-com.
PS - I'd like to think their pup Zoe warmed up to me by the end of the shoot, but you be the judge!
