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.

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

Alexa & Mateo E-session – McAllen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

A few months ago I had the crazy idea that i wanted to shoot a full fledge wedding in 35mm film! Right around this time my friend Alexa had gotten engaged to her handsome fiancé Mateo, so I reached out to her and offered her free photography services for her wedding if she allowed me to shoot it completely in film.

Like any photography package I offer I always like to shoot engagement photos too! Today I got back the developed imaged from my rolls and the photos are beautiful! Out of 3 rolls at about 35 frames each I was able to produce around 23 gorgeous images of the couple. I shot with two cameras; my Canon AE1 and Nikon FM10 using Kodak and Fuji Film.

Here are my favorite 12 images that honestly sum the beautiful photo session of the couple!

The very amazing and talented Stephanie Rios Photography is the contracted photographer for the couple and I am just shooting for personal growth.001304590002001304590008001304590010001304590014001304600014001304590020001304590026001304590027001304610008001304610012001304610016001304610019

Nick Cruz – UTRGV Graduate – Ben Briones Studios

Graduation is around the corner and one of the things that go along with walking across the stage is to take graduation photos to record the special milestone! My friend Nick Cruz recently setup a studio graduation photo session at my home studio located in McAllen, Texas and I love how the photos came out! Nick graduated in 2018 from the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) but didn’t get a chance to take photos back then but we hooked him up. Here are some of my favorite shots from this studio graduation photo session. 2019-03-20_00092019-03-20_00102019-03-20_00112019-03-20_00122019-03-20_00132019-03-20_00142019-03-20_00152019-03-20_0016
