Miguel and Deborah Engagement – Hidalgo Pumphouse – Ben Briones Studios

I had the privilege of photographing this beautiful couple last week. We chose the Old Hidalgo Pumphouse in Hildago, Texas for the special occasion. The Hidalgo Pumphouse is one of the cities’ special features and very popular for a photography spot among other things like bike riding, jogging or nature walks.

I love the colors the couple chose to wear for the shoot because they reflected a lot in the location so the the color pallet stayed cohesive. We utilized a few great spots around the property and these are my favorite shots from this engagement photo session. Enjoy! 2019-02-28_00012019-02-28_00022019-02-28_00052019-02-28_00062019-03-01_00012019-02-28_00092019-03-01_00172019-03-01_0011

 

 

Gabie & Manuel Engagement – Casa Polonia – Weslaco, Texas

Excited to share Gabie and Manuel’s engagements that we took at the popular photo shoot venue in Weslaco, Texas, Casa Polonia!  We did a set of outdoor and indoor photos for them.  This couple was so much fun to work with.  They trusted me with some of my crazy angles and ideas and I’m glad they did because I really love how their photos came out.

Although I love all of them, I have a few favorite because of the meaning behind them.  The first one is the one with the blue color gel light; I love that one because it adds a mood to something often shot and I also love it because they trusted me to get out of my comfort zone to be creative.  The second photo I’m super proud of is the McDonald’s ice cream cone engagement shot because they said their first date many years ago was at that same park with two delicious ice cream cones.

Eloise & Manny Engagements – McAllen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

I love this engagement session because it’s the perfect example of how I like to model my engagement photo shoots. I always tell my couples to choose at least two photo shoot locations and two outfits. The first location should be a more fancy or more formal place they can dress up for formal shots. The second locations is a place where they can have fun and dress down like a park.

This lovely couple chose the McAllen Convention Center as their formal location and Robin Park, behind Trenton View Plaza, for their fun location. The outfits they chose matched the location perfectly. Here are my favorite shots from this photo shoot! 2018-11-19_00312018-11-19_00322018-11-19_00332018-11-19_00302018-11-19_00342018-11-19_00352018-11-19_0036

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. Here are some of my favorite shots from this engagement photo session. 10.01.18_HighRes_Bianca Juan Engagement Session_BBS-9817_WEB10.01.18_HighRes_Bianca Juan Engagement Session_BBS-9926_WEB10.01.18_HighRes_Bianca Juan Engagement Session_BBS-0017_WEB10.01.18_HighRes_Bianca Juan Engagement Session_BBS-0054_WEB10.01.18_HighRes_Bianca Juan Engagement Session_BBS-0199_WEB10.01.18_HighRes_Bianca Juan Engagement Session_BBS-0157_WEB10.01.18_HighRes_Bianca Juan Engagement Session_BBS-0097_WEB10.01.18_HighRes_Bianca Juan Engagement Session_BBS-0296_WEB

Bobby and Priscilla Engagement – Casa Polonia – Weslaco, Texas

A few weeks back I took these beautiful engagement photos of Bobby and Priscilla at the gorgeous Casa Poloina located in Weslaco, Texas. The couple are getting married soon and wanted to take some beautiful couples but also includes their handsome son. I love how bold their outfits choices where.

We chose Casa Polonia because of the beautiful indoor and outdoor settings it has to offer. The couple fit right in because they have such great style. I was also surprised by how helpful the owner was. Once we got there Mike, the owner, helped with their son and carried him while we shot the couple. Later on in the shoot we added their son to the photos and I also love how sweet those came out! The couple got a engagement-family photo session infusion photo shoot. Here are my favorite photos from this session!

Today I captured such a beautiful proposal at South Padre Island! Rob and the bride-to-be planned this elaborate family photo session of 30+ people at the beach but what it really was going to be was a surprise proposal. Linda, the bride-to-be, had no idea.
