You might be able to tell from that photo that they are in love and engaged. The two met while doing a production of Miss Saigon in North Carolina. They're both actors and perhaps a bit dramatic. In an email, Jackie wrote that when they decided to get married, they joked about taking engagement pics that would be so "outlandish" that they'd confuse their whole family. It was so fun to brainstorm ideas, they couldn't settle on one. Imagine coming up with such great projects, especially because you're both actors, and are just exploding with creative photo shoots that combine your love for dramatic arts impeccably. I'm not even a thespian, and I'm already coming up with some spin-off ideas myself. Although now that I think of it, the only movie that I'd be keen to recreate is Practical Magic, and that might not work as well as these.

It turned into a year-long photo project with photographer Isaac James and relationship goals for the rest of us.

The two have been taking more and more engagement pics, paying homage to all their favorite characters in TV and film. Here we have Marvel's Agent Peggy Carter and Captain America:
