Sammy Turns 3 – San Juan, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Photographing this young lady was such a treat! Her mom told us that one day they were at church, The Basilica of the National Shrine of Our Lady of San Juan del Valle ,  and saw a quince taking photos on the church grounds rounds and that Sammy told her mom that she too wanted take pictures in a princess dress for her birthday. Well we made her wish come true. Sara and I loved working with her because she was so sweet and excited after every shot. We have worked with some younger clients before and Sammy has been one of the best. These are some of my favorite shots from her birthday photo shoot! 10.02.18_High Res_Sammy Portraits_BBS-7301_WEB10.02.18_High Res_Sammy Portraits_BBS-7324_WEB10.02.18_High Res_Sammy Portraits_BBS-7407_WEB10.02.18_High Res_Sammy Portraits_BBS-7440_WEB10.02.18_High Res_Sammy Portraits_BBS-7451_WEB10.02.18_High Res_Sammy Portraits_BBS-7461_WEB10.02.18_High Res_Sammy Portraits_BBS-7472_WEB10.02.18_High Res_Sammy Portraits_BBS-7497_WEB

Roslyn & Jose Engagement – Austin, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

A few weekends back while in Austin, Texas my clients and I setup an engagement photo shoot on a day that was suppose be be pouring rain but honestly all that was pouring that day was these bomb a– photos!

I really love how this little engagement-family photo session turned out. A good looking couple with their good looking son in a good looking city only results in some good look portraits! We chose to take the photos at Lady Bird Lake Park because a few months back I had taken Roslyn’s maternity photos there, so it was a special location. These are some of my favorite shots from this session. Enjoy! 2018-10-23_00012018-10-23_00022018-10-23_00032018-10-23_00042018-10-23_00052018-10-23_00062018-10-23_00072018-10-23_0008

Bianca and Tony Engagement Session – La Estrella Ranch – Mission, Texas

Last Monday I got to photograph this lovely couple at the La Estrella Ranch in Mission, Texas. When we met they were looking for something rustic and western and we picked the perfect location. Their outfits were spot with the theme they were going for and the couple really enjoyed the location.

Although not seen in the shots the ranch had a this very playful chocolate lab who kept bring her toy ball to us to play catch the whole hour we were at the venue. It was very cute. I love the red outfits the couple chose to shoot in when we had daylight and then they changed out to something more formal for the evening, which was perfect for the night setting.

Amanda & Marcos Wedding – The Grove- Edinburg, Texas

A few weekends ago I shot one of the most beautiful outdoor weddings in my career. I was hired by a good friend Mrs. Amanda and her husband Marco’s to be the official photographer at their wedding. The wedding took place at the beautiful outdoor wedding venue known as The Grove Wedding and Event Venue.

The wedding day ambiance was perfect, it was filled with excitement, wedding day nerves, and very emotional moments. There was a special trip we took with the bride and groom to see her father, who couldn’t make it to the wedding because of health issues. The bride got to have her first dance with her daddy and we were able to capture that! This is why we love what we do and why professional wedding photography is super important!

I love the style of the wedding and how perfect the wedding fit. The bride look super mega amazing in her wedding and boots! It’s hard to share how much fun we had documenting this wedding but here are some of our favorite moments from that special day!

Sean Rodriguez Turns 3 – McAllen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of photographing this little stud again for his 3-year old birthday coming up. Last year I was hired by my good friend and awesome photographer Stephanie Rios to capture his 2-year old portraits and I love how they came out. It is always awesome working with family faces.

Sean and his parents and I planned to take him out to Archer Park in McAllen, Texas and surrounding areas to take his pics. As you can see he has amazing style thanks to his stylish parents so the area we went to was perfect for his outfits! I really love that his parents dress him for success! My favorite shirt of course was his birthday cake shirt! Here are are some of my favorite shots from Sean’s 3-year old birthday portraits! 2018-09-02_00242018-09-02_00252018-09-02_00262018-09-02_00272018-09-02_00282018-09-02_00292018-09-02_00302018-09-02_0031
