I met up with Essie and Brandon on the banks of Chaplain's Lake on the gorgeous Northwestern State University campus in Natchitoches, Louisiana. They'll be married this spring.
Their personalities are both so sweet and funny, driven and dedicated, it's easy to see why they work so well together.
Essie's soft pink maxi dress was a beautiful contrasting color to Brandon's blue button-down. Her makeup was gorgeous, soft and refined, perfect to show off her gorgeous cheekbones.
Brandon and Essie, congratulations and best wishes on your upcoming marriage!

Emily and I met up in downtown Natchitoches for her senior photos! I think they look incredible. Emily will be graduating from Natchitoches Central High School this spring.
One of the most important pieces of gear for a photographer is the bag they carry their equipment in. Luckily, I have amassed quite collection! I am obsessed with my @thehouseofflynn bags, for sure. I started with the much beloved Blush Rose Gold Evermore a couple of years ago and it was world-changing! Today, I own so many of @maureenflynnphotos designs, including 4 bag styles, two travel wallets, a camera strap and a gorgeous tulle skirt. Want my honest opinion? The House of Flynn produces quality. Every stitch, every piece of hardware, every foam divider is painstaking made, and it shows. As of right now, these are the only bags I’ll ever carry my precious, memory-preserving gear in. Highly, highly recommend! #thehouseofflynn #hofbags #cherryblossomevermore #blushrosegoldevermore #hofbackpack #camerabag #photographygear #louisianaphotographer #natchitoches #weddingphotographer
Joseph and Krystin were wed on August 26, 2017 in front of their family and friends at the Flora Community Center. The venue is in Flora, a tiny little community just a few miles outside of Natchitoches. It's a sweet country meeting center surrounded by huge trees draped in gorgeous Spanish moss. The inside of the building has wood-paneled walls and quite honestly, there couldn't be a more perfect place for a rustic country wedding.
Krystin chose gorgeous decor pieces like burlap and lace, mason jars, tin, and sunflowers... so many sunflowers. Her colors, navy blue and yellow, fit so well with the rest of her country theme and it turned out perfectly. Navy was the color of both the bridesmaid's dresses as well as the groomsmen neck ties.
Krystin's sunflower bouquet was wrapped in burlap and had a precious photo locket charm with a picture of her mother inside. Krystin's mother couldn't be there in person, but she was definitely present. There was a corner of the stage dedicated to her life and her love for her family and there was a special moment of reflection in her honor.
The cake, a beautiful two-tiered masterpiece created by Kristy Fredieu of Sweet Cakes and Treats by Kristy in Natchitoches, was the perfect centerpiece to a fabulous dessert table filled with cupcakes.
Join me in wishing the Bynog's congratulations and best wishes for a happy marriage!
