Luis & Maripili Engagement – Memory Lane Photo Spot – Ben Briones Studios

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! 2018-10-18_PRINT_Luis and Maripili E-Session_BBS-8761_WEB2018-10-18_PRINT_Luis and Maripili E-Session_BBS-8780_WEB2018-10-18_PRINT_Luis and Maripili E-Session_BBS-8853_WEB2018-10-18_PRINT_Luis and Maripili E-Session_BBS-9001_WEB2018-10-18_PRINT_Luis and Maripili E-Session_BBS-9098_WEB2018-10-18_PRINT_Luis and Maripili E-Session_BBS-9191_WEB2018-10-18_PRINT_Luis and Maripili E-Session_BBS-9250_WEB2018-10-18_PRINT_Luis and Maripili E-Session_BBS-9385_WEB

 

 

Vanessa and Charles – McAllen Texas – Ben Briones Studio

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!

Sergio & Karen Engagement – Archer Park – McAllen, Texas

Today is a special day! The couple you see in these photos are getting married! It’s also kind of special for me too. You see, Ms. Karen Cavazos, is my best friend’s little sister. I have known Karen as long as I have known my best friend, “the world traveler” Israel aka Gunty!

When Karen told me she was getting married and demanded I be her photographer I accepted gladly. When we did these engagement session photos with her and her fiancé, Serigio, it was as smooth as butter because of the longtime relationship I have had with Karen. I am super excited for the couple and can’t wait to capture all the special moments in their love story.

Israel, I wish you were here man but I know you’re somewhere across the world living your dream. I will do my best to capture your sisters special day. 12.04.17_PRINT_Karen Sergio Engagement_BBS-4145_WEB12.04.17_PRINT_Karen Sergio Engagement_BBS-4169_WEB12.04.17_PRINT_Karen Sergio Engagement_BBS-4186_WEB12.04.17_PRINT_Karen Sergio Engagement_BBS-4201_WEB12.04.17_PRINT_Karen Sergio Engagement_BBS-4265_WEB12.04.17_PRINT_Karen Sergio Engagement_BBS-4355_WEB12.04.17_PRINT_Karen Sergio Engagement_BBS-4374_WEB12.04.17_PRINT_Karen Sergio Engagement_BBS-4431_WEB

Cristella & Louis – E-Session – Austin, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

One of the most beautiful laid back couples you will ever meet! My assistant, Jessica Musick, and I enjoyed photographing these two in Austin, Texas. We decided on two locations. One would be at a local park named Mayfield–Gutsch Estate, which is known for having free-roaming peacocks. The second location was at their home, where the couple said they spend the most time together. Although we are not showing some of those photos because they are more private to the couple it was a special setting.

These shots below are some of our favorite photos from our adventure with them  at Mayfield-Gutsch Estate that day. Enjoy!

Eleazar & Elizabeth Engagement | San Antonio Missions | Ben Briones Studios

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.

Mindy & Adrian Engagement Session – San Antonio Texas – Ben Briones Studios

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!

Dennis and Cynthia Engagement | Memory Lane Photo Spot, Mission Texas

#TBT

Dennis and Cynthia gave us the pleasure of entering their world on January 4th of 2017 to photograph their engagement at Memory Lane Photo Spot. Enter their world is what we did as it became immediately apparent that these two lovers co-exist in a world of joy and laughter. It brought a smile to anyone to would stop and witness.

We photographed this fun couple at the famous Memory Lane Photo Spot in Mission, Texas. I really enjoyed photographing the couple at this location because it has so much variety and we felt it allowed the couple to be themselves and just have fun with the place. You will see a lot of genuine laughs and smiles radiating from the two.

Stephany & Harry Engagement | Estero Llano Grande State Park | Weslaco,Texas

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!
