Mindy Ramos Bridal Portraits – Sacred Heart Church – Edinburg, Texas

We had this bridal session for this beautiful young lady last week.  The session took place at the church where Mrs. Mindy Ramos ( now Elizondo)  was getting married at and i thought that was perfect!  The church was so beautiful with its high ceilings and stained glass that made for this perfect image shown below.  Once i got to see her walk out with her dress i thought she looked gorgeous, and no doubt in my mind she was going to look amazing in the shots.  She wore a vail that had crystals attached that catch the light and sparkle like little stars.  Her bouquet of red, white roses and purple flowers added a pop of color against her white white dress that made the whole look as well.

We posed Mindy in different locations inside and out the church but by far my favorite shots where when she stood in front of the stain glass window.   The light lit her from the back that made her look like a glowing angel.  Overall loved this session.  Thank You Mindy for letting us capture this moment in your life.

If you are interested in capturing a special moment in your life please contact us.  You will be in good hands!

Monica Ramos – Bridal Session – Edinburg- Ben Briones Studios

#FLASHBACKFRIDAY

In December a coworker asked me if I could take “traditional studio” portraits. If you have seen my work you can see I rarely do studio style work but I took on this challenge. 

Monica is a beautiful bride so the images were going to turn out lovely regardless. The lighting was not an issue either but the issue, if any, was going to be in the posing. Typically in the photo shoots I conduct take place at locations with furniture and objects to help with the posing but this time around we shot at my photography studio located at The Grindstone Co Working in Edinburg. We had a gray backdrop and wood floor and that was it. 

The approach I took for this traditonial studio photo shoot was to show off two things; her wedding dress and her beauty. I made sure to photograph her from every angle to show off her beautiful wedding gown. Then I also made sure to make her laugh and smile so her natural beauty would shine through the images.

Chloe Ayala Bridals – Villa Garcia – Rio Grande City

We photographed these beautiful bridals of Chloe back in December of 2016 at a private ranch called Villa Garcia in Rio Grande City, Texas. It was the perfect setting for her wedding theme. Jessica and I photographed Chloe in different locations around the Villa using a mixture of studio lighting and ambient light.

Chloe was amazing at the shoot. She trusted us with some crazy ideas but she too had some very nice visions that we executed for her as well. I fell in love with all the photos because of how beautiful the bride looked and how cool the theme was. Enjoy these top favorite shots.

Joanna Sanchez – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

A bridal session is a rarity for us at Ben Briones Studios. We have done many and plenty as you can see here on the bridal section of our website but many brides opt-out of the option or up-sell. Then there are those brave brides who do choose to take on a bridal session and risk their dress, pay for a makeup session and hair session. These are brides are the ones who have choose legacy.

Bridal Session – Weslaco, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Mrs. Martha, who too is an amazing wedding photographer, looks stunning in her bridal photos. We took these at the Villa De Cortez a reception and event facility located in the center of Weslaco’s downtown historic district. This venue is very romantic and vintage, which is perfect for these type of photos.

On this photo shoot I used a mixture of studio light with a softbox and natural light. When it comes to bridal sessions you want to try to be the most creative you can possible. One of my favorite photos from this set is the 5th photo that has golden light on the bride. Martha was so much fun to work with. Please check out her photography, as I mentioned she’s such a talented photographer.

Jessica Marie Berrones – Bridal – Mcallen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Another 2012 treasure being released just for you! I really want to go on this rampage of release some of my old work even if it’s not good. Maybe my work was better back then and I need to post these so I can get back on my game? I will let you all be the judge of that!

This bridal photo session was taken at he Quinta Mazatlan World Birding Center. For this session I remember I really tried to use a lot more of the inside and have fun with the lighting. The bride is gorgeous so it was super easy to pose her in any location of the facility. Super props to my best friend Daniela “aka Weta”, who assisted me with this bridal session.

One thing about my photography or my business is that I never fail to give kudos to my support system which includes hired assistance, friends, family or the client themselves. Thank you Jessica Marie Berrones for trusting me to capture these special moments in your life. Many blessings for your marriage and family.

Cynthia Flores Bridal – Encino, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

So much love for this gorgeous bride! Cynthia Cameron (now Flores) thank you so much becoming my friend, being a Sister-in-Christ, and just overall trusting me to capture some of the most beautiful milestones in your life. I always tell all my clients that you have to love your photographer and us a photographers have to love our clients and I think the relationship and friendship we have built is simply based off that true love Christ has shown us.

Today is a special day for you and Baltazar and I cannot wait to how happy you two will be once the night is over. God bless you and all your family. Cynthia, my Sister-in-Christ, I love you and Baltazar and always know that I am here for you two whenever!

Enough emotional blah blahs! I wanted to share some of all time favorite shots form Cynthia’s beautiful bridal photo session at the Skipper Ranch in Encino, Texas. The first time I photographed at the Skipper Ranch was last fall as a second shooter for Photos by Adriana. It was such a beautiful country wedding and it just brought the Skipper Ranch to life as a go-to premiere outdoor wedding venue. To see some images from that wedding please click on this link: Michael & Tome Fairas Wedding by Photos by Adriana. 

When my beautiful bride was looking for a country style venue for her bridals the Skipper Ranch was the very first location that came to mind. I quickly called Mr. Farias to book our session and we made it happen. Ever since that wedding I knew this location would be one of my top places to visit with my clients for my sessions. The Skipper ranch had so much variety to use and I know it made Cynthia very happy. We had the opportunity to shoot indoor and outdoor for a very reasonable rate. I would highly suggest the Skipper Ranch for any type of photo session and outdoor special event.

I present to you Cynthia Cameron’s Bridal session at the Skipper Ranch in Encino, Texas.

Laura Valdez Bridals – San Juan, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

The excitement of revealing bridal photos is just unbearable. Laura is unique girl. You saw her engagement session, which had a completely different style of this photo shoot but I think this one still takes the cake because she’s such a gorgeous girl. This was such a special bridal photo session because Laura’s parents and sister were present. I also had one of my super awesome friends, Felicia Sepulveda, of Shutterbug Photography helping me create these beautiful images for Mrs. Laura Valdez.

To top it off we choose such a beautiful unique wedding venue the Rio Grande Valley has to offer. Villa De Palmas in San Juan, Texas has been one of my go to venues lately because it’s a new discovery to me. It has so much to offer for all kinds of portrait photography.

Laura made such a beautiful bride. I love the mix of lace in her dress and the elegant look of her hair. Her style fit perfectly into the Spanish royal styling of the Villa De Palmas mansion. These are some of my ultimate favorite images from this photo session.

Ruth Reyes – Bridal – McAllen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Talk about throwback, flashback and way back when… I took these beautiful photos of Mrs. Reyes in 2012 a few months before her wedding. We shot these at the Quinta Mazatlan World Birding Center located in South McAllen.

I was young, ambitious and straight out of college. My goal was to make a name of myself among many of the great photographers her in the Rio Grande Valley. You can see me exploring and trying to find my style in a lot of my very first professional shoots such as this one.

When you first starting shooting you want to try everything and soon after you find your footing and build on that style. I think if you look at this and my current work you can see that from 2012 to 2016 my photography style has been consistent. Thank you Mrs. Ruth for allowing me to capture these special moments for you as I took was climbing milestones in my life. Enjoy!
