Cristina Quince Party – La Lomita Park Venue – Ben Briones Studios

A while back we were hired to photograph this special quince event for Cristina. She had her event at the famous La Lomita Park in McAllen, Texas. The family really made us feel at home and we really enjoyed photographing this event. Here are my favorite shots from this event.

Flashpoint eVOLV 200 – Studio Head Shot Test – Ben Briones Studios

#TBT

A few months ago I tested the Flashpoint eVOLV 200 outdoor with these two cool kids and I loved how the photos came out. I have been recently looking for a smaller powerful light for my photography and the Flashpoint eVOLV 200 / Godox AD200 is a competitor for my money. Yes, I am probably like a billion years late with these lights but who cares.

Anyways, I was able to gather these guys again for another photo shoot but this time in my studio for head shots. I used a very small octabox, I believe it was a 18inch, and a YONGNUO YN560 for background light. To kill some shadows we used a small reflector under their face. Here are some of my favorite shots from the photo session testing out the Flashpoint eVOLV 200 in my studio. I am really, really thinking of getting this light but we will see. 2018-09-15_00012018-09-15_00032018-09-15_00022018-09-15_00042018-09-15_00072018-09-15_00052018-09-15_0006

Alicia Quince Portraits – International Museum of Art & Science – Ben Briones Studios

There was once upon a time were I shot a quince photo shoot at the International Museum of Art & Science in McAllen, Texas. I am not too sure if they allow photo session to happen at the Museum anymore but at least I got to say I did it. The photo shoot was short and simple. Her Mom didn’t want anything too fancy but did want some unique shots so I think the Museum was the best place to take the photos. Here are some of my favorite shots. Alicia Quince_HighRes_BenBrionesStudios-32_WEBAlicia Quince_HighRes_BenBrionesStudios-27_WEBAlicia Quince_HighRes_BenBrionesStudios-20_WEBAlicia Quince_Edits_BBP-10_WEBAlicia Quince_Edits_BBP-4_WEB

Stacie Longoria – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Bridal portrait sessions are some of my favorite photo shoots to conduct but it’s always so hard to show them off because we have to keep them secret so the groom won’t see them. Here are some I took back in 2014 for Mrs. Stacie at Memory Lane Photo Spot. This venue makes for beautiful bridal portraits because of style of the home and how they family has it decorated. Stacie was also amazing to work with because she trusted my creative eye and was a gorgeous bride. Here are my favorite shots from this bridal session.

Destiny Love Quince – McAllen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Typically you tend to see Quince portraits photographed outdoor but for this winter wonderland style quince we chose to take the photos inside to make them look more elegant and so they can be closer to the winter theme. I really love how these shots came out because The Gala Special Events is always decorated beautifully. Here are my favorite shots from this quince photo session.

Sara Yanez – Waco, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Last photo shoot of 2018 with my number one model, my Sara Pie! Sara and I have been vacationing in Waco, Texas for a few days but it has been cold and rainy but today the weather was nice so we took advantage and had a photo shoot with our Nikon D600 and 50mm 1.8 lens. We shot all natural light at this beautiful historic bridge in Waco, Texas. These are some of my favorite shots. Enjoy and happy new year!
