Jacklyn & Michael Engagement – Hidalgo Pump House – Ben Briones Studios

One of our favorite locations to photograph couples at is the Old Hidalgo Pump House located in Hidalgo, Texas. It has so much to use and I think it’s a romantic location that really lends itself for engagement photos.

Here are some of our favorite shots from Jacklyn and Michael’s engagement photos. I really love their outfit and the energy they brought to the shoot. My friend and photography student, Jennifer Trevino, assisted me for this shoot and shot some beautiful photos as well. Here are our favorites.

Kody and Jasmine – Surprise Proposal – Weslaco, TX

This summer I was asked to capture a special moment for this couple. Kody, was going to propose to his girlfriend of 6 years and wanted us to capture it on photo and video. Kody had a good plan that worked out. He told Jasmine that they were going to be taking couples photos for their anniversary but little did she know they would be taking “pre-engagement photos”. The couple chose Estero Llano Grande in Weslaco, Texas for their special moment. Here is what we were able to capture. 07.30.19_High Res_Solis Proposal_BBS-9996_WEB07.30.19_High Res_Solis Proposal_BBS-0032_WEB07.30.19_High Res_Solis Proposal_BBS-0046_WEB07.30.19_High Res_Solis Proposal_BBS-0098_WEB07.30.19_High Res_Solis Proposal_BBS-0155_WEB07.30.19_High Res_Solis Proposal_BBS-0173_WEB07.30.19_High Res_Solis Proposal_BBS-0297_WEB07.30.19_High Res_Solis Proposal_BBS-0255_WEB

Luci & Patrick Engagement – Dallas, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Luci and I go way back to the start of my college years, so these engagement portraits were very meaningful. Patrick, Luci’s fiance, is such an amazing cool guy and made the photo shoot ten times more fun! They are the perfect match and it really shows in these photos. I couldn’t wait to show them off!

We shot a various places downtown Dallas, Texas. We started off at Kyde Warren Park were we got to photograph the couple with their puppy. I was also able to grab some other beautiful shots at the park too. We then walked over to the Dallas Museum of Art to take more cute pics by the famous mural on their driveway. The Dallas Center for the Performing Arts was another great location and we finally ended the evening at the beautiful and famous Margaret Hunt Bridge! Here are my favorite shots from this session! Klyde Warren Park05.04.19_High Res_Luci Patrick Engagement_BBS-8923_WEB05.04.19_High Res_Luci Patrick Engagement_BBS-8953_WEBKlyde Warren ParkDallas Museum Of ArtDallas Center for the Performing ArtsDallas Center for the Performing ArtsDallas Center for the Performing ArtsDallas Center for the Performing ArtsMargaret Hunt Hill Bridge

Alexa & Mateo E-session – McAllen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

A few months ago I had the crazy idea that i wanted to shoot a full fledge wedding in 35mm film! Right around this time my friend Alexa had gotten engaged to her handsome fiancé Mateo, so I reached out to her and offered her free photography services for her wedding if she allowed me to shoot it completely in film.

Like any photography package I offer I always like to shoot engagement photos too! Today I got back the developed imaged from my rolls and the photos are beautiful! Out of 3 rolls at about 35 frames each I was able to produce around 23 gorgeous images of the couple. I shot with two cameras; my Canon AE1 and Nikon FM10 using Kodak and Fuji Film.

Here are my favorite 12 images that honestly sum the beautiful photo session of the couple!

The very amazing and talented Stephanie Rios Photography is the contracted photographer for the couple and I am just shooting for personal growth.001304590002001304590008001304590010001304590014001304600014001304590020001304590026001304590027001304610008001304610012001304610016001304610019

Rodriguez Engagement – Encino, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Have you ever heard of Encino, Texas? Yeah, me either! It’s that little town you pass by going 85mph that’s between Edinburg, Texas and Falfurrias, Texas. But a few weeks back  instead of passing through we stopped by and explored a bit and took some beautiful photos of this lovely couple. There is so much beauty out in the country, we even found lovely patches of Texas wildflowers. Just look at the bluebonnets in the shots.

This photo shoot was pretty cool. The couple are both EMT and first responders. They are literally real life super heroes saving lives! The couple lives out there in Encino and wanted to take their engagement portraits there because it’s their home and special to them. I am glad we did because just look at flowers! We shot on private property and at the local fire department. Check out the shots to see how they came out. 2019-03-24_00012019-03-24_00022019-03-24_00032019-03-24_00042019-03-24_00052019-03-24_00062019-03-24_00072019-03-24_0008

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.
