Their photographer – The Randolphs – commented on their post, writing, “🖤 my heart is still exploding.” The husband-and-wife duo already have ties to Bachelor Nation, previously photographing Katie Thurston and John Hersey.
The Randolphs shared additional images from the photoshoot, this time in color, on their professional Instagram account.
“Brandon and Serene have the kind of love I just want to bottle up forever— a love that is so tender, raw and special,” they captioned the carousel. “The best I can do is eternalize their love in pictures. Here’s a sneak peek of just one chapter of their fun session. 🖤”

Brandon Jones & Serene Russell Are Planning a 2024 Wedding
Wedding bells could soon be ringing for Jones and Russell, who moved in together while the season was airing, according to People. They live in San Diego, California.
Russell told the outlet the couple was planning a 2024 wedding. But, she revealed during an Instagram Q&A in January 2023 that they had yet to set a wedding date, Bachelor Nation reported.
“The only reason we don’t have an actual set date right now is just because we don’t know exactly where we want to get married and a lot of that stuff is based on season,” Russell responded to a fan, as Bachelor Nation quoted.
According to the franchise’s website, the former teacher added, “We don’t want to do something seasonal in the wrong season like getting married in the mountains when it’s winter. So we’re trying to nail down exactly what kind of wedding we want and where we want it and then we will start talking about dates. We do have a year, though, it will be in 2024!”
