Allman Wedding – South Padre Island – Ben Briones Studios

This past weekend we photographed a beautiful couple at South Padre Island, Texas. Andrew and Abigail chose to have their ceremony by the sea sounded by their close family and friends. The bride looked stunning in her dress and Mr. Andrew and his groomsmen stood out in their maroon fishing shirts perfect for the occasion.

After the ceremony we photographed the couple and their bridal party with the ocean as their backdrop. Abigal and Andrew had special request to be photographed with their two dogs, which we happily photographed this newly formed family of four! Later in the evening the couple had their reception at Schlitterbahn Resort on South Padre Island. Here are some of our favorites shots from their wedding. Enjoy!

Britny & Ignacio Announcement – Tomorrow There Will Be More of Us! – Edinburg, Texas

From shooting their engagement photos, to traveling with my team to Fredericksburg, Texas to document their wedding day, I have been photographing Britny and Ignacio’s special moments up to now.  Being given the opportunity to once more be a part of another milestone in their lives by photographing their baby announcement was exciting!

Britny had great ideas.  She wanted a theater as the location to shoot this announcement.  We scouted around town and decided to use the Edinburg Municipal Auditorium and the Citrus Theater located down town Edinburg, Texas.  Tell us how we did, these are our favorite shots.

Congratulations, Britny and Ignacio!

Adalie’s Quince – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Having a Quinceañera is super special for a young woman and the parents. I met Adalie when her father brought her to my studio for her formal portrait session. Her photos turned out so beautiful in her portraits with her blue dress.  It was no surprise that the result of her photos from her Quinceañera would be any different.

Here are our favorite photos from documenting a special evening of symbolic traditions, dancing, and fun moments of Adalie celebrating her 15th birthday with her family and friends.

Ginger Garza – 35mm Film – Edinburg, Texas

To those who don’t know I give private photography lessons to about 2-3 students and at one of my lessons I decided to also become a student of photography and practice shooting 35mm film with my Canon AE-1. We held our lesson at the beautiful Edinburg City Hall located in the heart of the city.

At the scenarios that I setup our returning volunteer model, Ms. Ginger Garza, I also took a few snaps of what my students were capturing and these were my best shots.

Ashley and Juan Wedding – Hacienda San Juan – Ben Briones Studios

Ashley and Juan’s Wedding day began at their parents home. It was a special sight to see the couple getting ready with their family. The couple currently lives in Austin, Texas, where we took their engagement photos, so to be back home on such a momentous day must have been very exciting for everyone. The couple had a beautiful catholic ceremony at Holy Spirt in McAllen, Texas where we also took their wedding day portraits. On the way to their venue in San Juan, Texas we stopped at the Basilica Of Our Lady of San Juan del Valle – National Shrine to take more photos of the couple. Finally we ended the night with a beautiful reception at the gorgeous rebranded wedding venue now known as Hacienda San Juan located in San Juan, Texas. Here are my favorite photos from their wedding day.

Amanda Maternity – Sarita, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Today we shot some beautiful maternity photos in a town named Sarita, Texas, which is a short distance from Kingsville, Texas. The family chose to have their photos taken at the Kenedy Ranch Museum. Amanda is a returning client. We took Amanda and Marcos Wedding photos back in November of 2018 and today we photographed another special milestone in their lives.

The Kenedy Ranch Museum has a beautiful outdoor country feel and it was perfect for the ideas Amanda had planned. Here are some of our favorite photos. 2019-04-13_00012019-04-13_00022019-04-13_00032019-04-13_00042019-04-13_00052019-04-13_00062019-04-13_00072019-04-13_00082019-04-13_00092019-04-13_00102019-04-13_0011
