Jackie Jones Bridals – International Museum of Art & Science – McAllen, Texas

There are two great reasons to add bridal portrait session to your wedding package!

Reason One
It’s practice run for your hair and makeup. You get to see how your bridal hairdo will look with your dress and if you don’t like the original plan you can always change it up before the wedding day. Same idea applies to your makeup. You get to see how you beautiful you will look on your wedding day and make adjustments if needed.

Reason Two
Tradition is important in the wedding culture and having your bridal photos taken independently from your wedding day builds tradition for you and your family. I’ve been to a few homes where you find a bridal photo of their grandparents still hanging on the wall. As a photographer I love that idea that you will forever stop time in a bridal portrait.

Diana Atilano – Edinburg, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

This blog post is a major throwback to some of my first work! My good friend Diana is the subject in these photos and she did an amazing job even though I was a noob at the time. I think I shot these photos with my Canon Rebel XTi, which was my first DSLR. These photos date back to 2008 and it’s always exciting to look at my old work because it shows me two things; growth and passion. Tell me what you think of these in the comments. 08.23.08_High Res_Diana Atilano_BBP-6217_WEB08.23.08_High Res_Diana Atilano_BBP-6249_WEB08.23.08_High Res_Diana Atilano_BBP-6268_WEB08.23.08_High Res_Diana Atilano_BBP-6283_WEB08.23.08_High Res_Diana Atilano_BBP-6350_WEB08.23.08_High Res_Diana Atilano_BBP-6353_WEB08.23.08_High Res_Diana Atilano_BBP-6458_WEBIMG_6230_WEBIMG_6413 copy_WEBIMG_6528_WEB
