Last weekend we hangout and photographed this sweet couple. They are planning a beautiful wedding in Mexico and needed some engagement photos for the big announcement. I will say that the couple is already legally married but they are still planning, what will be amazing wedding, and only because I am a groomsmen. I am super excited for that!
I’ve known Luis for many years now, maybe like 7 plus years or even more but we have a good friendship and I consider him one of my best friends. He actually helped shape the Ben Briones Studio brand! He and his team created my logo and overall look of my business.
Luis and Maripili are a perfect match. Both of them are extremely creative, compassionate, stylish, and extremely fun! When we were planning their engagement session we decided on something cute and outdoors. The couple has an awesome marketing company that they are successfully running. The first place that came to mind was Memory Lane Photo Spot in Mission, Texas. The spot was perfect because the couple because they wanted to include their new dog. Enough words let’s jump over to these awesome photos of Luis and Maripili and their cute dog!
We had the pleasure of shooting this engagement session for these two love birds. The couple wanted a location that was sophisticated and La Quinta Mazlatan in McAllen, Texas came to mind. We started the session inside. Both of them were a natural at posing and made it very easy shoot. Vanessa and Charles had great chemistry. As the session went on, the couple decided to change into their second outfit of the day, which led us outside. The outside of La Quinta is full of greenery and beautiful shooting location wasn’t hard to get started shooting.
Charles is a active firefighter and had the great idea of heading to his fire station, but sadly it wasn’t available. After making a few calls they were able to find an available station that could accommodate to us. The shots we took at the fire station looked amazing, this added a personal touch to their session that will make it memorable. Here are out favorite shots from this photo shoot. Enjoy!

This photo shoot was quite the experience! It’s not every day you get to photograph a gorgeous couple on the grounds of a historical marker. Eleazar and Elizabeth hired us to take their engagement photos in San Antonio, Texas.
We shot at the San Antonio Missions, a 1700’s historical preservation of Spanish history in Texas. The couple fell in love with the location and thought it perfect for their engagement photos. I think they picked the best place to document their love for each other.
You best believe Jessica and I had a blast at this location. There were so many angles and so much beauty around us. Not to mention the good looking couple! We used a mixture of natural light and studio lighting to create these photos. Many of the poses were thought up by Jessica and they came out lovely. Truth be told this is one of our favorite “Out-of-the-Valley” photo shoots.

Tomorrow this lovely couple gets married!!! We are super excited to share these beautiful engagement photos we took of Mindy and Adrian in San Antonio, Texas. I bet the two are nervous but excited for their big day. Whatever feelings they are having right now I know the most special feeling is love.
Jessica and I really enjoyed photographing these two all around San Antonio. We started off at a bridge that allows you to see downtown, then we made our way into the city, then to the Japanese Tea Garden, and finally finishing in the evening at the elegant area of their hotel central of the city. Enjoy these photos and wish them the best tomorrow!

A month ago we had the pleasure of photographing these love birds, Stephany and Harry. They wanted a green scenery and a walk bridge for their engagement session and we had an awesome area here in Weslaco, Texas just for that.
We made our way to Estero Llano Grade State Park, once entering it was already a great area to photograph. Which was a great benefit to us and the couple, since we didn’t have to walk much into the park to enjoy the park. It’s rare that we do an 8 a.m. photo shoot but we took on this challenge because we knew the weather would be a little better early morning.
Beside the weather being hot these two troopers made it through their session and we got to enjoy breakfast with them afterward! We are now excited to finally share these images with you guys!

On January 10th, 2017 we photographed Sandra and Alex at Donna’s Hummingbird Springs with their two dogs. It was easy to see the amount of love their dogs are showered with by these two but moreover how much love the couple has for each other!
Both Sandra and Alex are in law enforcement and both have their discipline but that day they reminded us that flirting is a key to a happy relationship. They are so sweet and awesome together. We were honored they chose us to photograph their love story. Thank you both for your service, above everything you two are the ones who put your life on the line for us regardless of who we are or what we believe, for that we thank you so much!
The photo shoot took place at now of the newest and hottest wedding venue, Hummingbird Springs located in 605 S Hutto Rd, Donna, TX. The locations is so diverse and beautiful.
