Shawn & Mandy Wedding – South Padre Island – Ben Briones Studios

#FLASHBACKFRIDAY

The Kelley’s have been a longtime client of my studio. Truly since this I photographed their beautiful wedding. Today I wanted to share their South Padre Island wedding story with you. It has been since more than 4 years since the wedding but the photos are still so vibrant and relevant.

The wedding ceremony took place at the historic Chapel by the Sea located at 33425 State Park Rd 100, South Padre Island, TX. You could not ask for a more beautiful church for a wedding ceremony. Then the reception followed at the luxury hotel Blue Sapphire also found on the strip of South Padre Island, Texas.

This wedding will go down in my books as one of my all time favorite weddings of my career and this is why. The couple was just amazing to work with. Both Shawn and Mandy both believed in me, trusted my team, and gave us complete creative freedom. Secondly, Shawn and Mandy are one good looking couple and their baby girl is just gorgeous. A year or so ago I got to take their family photos at their dad’s ranch in San Antonio, Texas and they are just such a beautiful family. Lastly, the couple treated us like guest. They paid for our hotel at the beach resort, they treated us like guest throughout the wedding day and continued to treat me and my team like longterm friends years after their wedding day.

I don’t have many more words for this wedding because the photos themselves speak volumes and not because I and my team took them but because it was just such a special day!

One thought on “Shawn & Mandy Wedding – South Padre Island – Ben Briones Studios

  1. Ben! This was such a special day and thanks to you, I can relive all my favorite moments through the amazing pictures. You became a part of our family that day and we love you and wish you all the success in your journey as a photographer. I will never forget when we were cutting the cake, we had no idea where to cut and I looked at you and you calmly were like “just cut a small slice from the bottom”. I felt like I was talking to one of my brothers or a really good friend! Something so small, but you really set us as ease. Fast forward 5 years and you have taken family pictures of us through some of our most major milestones! Most recently, Shawn’s graduation from the DPS academy. I treasure the pictures you have taken of our family and I display them in our home and at my office. You would be so happy if you knew of all the sweet compliments I receive on them. This post means a lot to us Ben!
