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!

Surprise Proposal – Lee & Nora – Patio on Guerra

Tonight my shooting partner Stephanie Rios and I took part of this beautiful surprise proposal at Patio on Guerra downtown McAllen. Lee, a friend from high school reached out to me the day before to see if I could capture him on photo and video proposing to this love of his life.

To be honest these type of gigs are my favorite because you don’t know what to expect. We met last night and planned it out a bit and I think it unfolded perfectly as discussed. Everything about this was perfect. The setting, the romantic music by a guitarist, the surprise and the love.

I can’t write exactly how everything fell into place but I know these photos can. Congratulations to you Lee and Nora! Steph and I wish you two everlasting love!

Sandra and Alex E-Session | Hummingbird Springs | Donna, Texas

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. The location was the perfect location for our clients because they are pet friendly. Any look goes well at this location, rather you are in a suite and tie or relaxed outfit, you are guaranteed to look good.

Aaron & Chloe E-Session – Weslaco, Texas- Ben Briones Studios

Casa Polonia in Weslaco, Texas has become one of our favorite locations to photograph our couples lately. It’s super versatile yet challenging. The location has so much to offer and you can capture beautiful shots from every angle. The owner Mike is also such a swell guy. He has always accommodated us when we are in a bind. Thank you Mike, You are truly a friend!

When my clients and I were looking for places to shoot in Weslaco we had overlooked Casa Polonia. The couple had a few other places in mind but every session we scheduled at those locations never happened due to some circumstance like weather or scheduling conflicts. Then finally we found Casa Polonia and we booked it. The client and after they saw the photos of the location they fell in love with the place and we booked it.

The day of the shoot was a little challenging but nothing I couldn’t handle. I took on this shoot alone without an assistant and I am glad I did because I really got to bond with the couple. When we arrived to the location there was day light but quickly left us. All I had for lighting was my simple one strobe light with a silver reflecting umbrella. I call this my lazy-man-light-setup. Well I took on the shoot at night and thanks to creative decision making [aka slow shutter shinnigans] and patient clients I was able to create these beautiful images.
