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

Eliose & Manny Wedding – Rancho Quinta Luz – McAllen, Texas

Found this gem of a wedding in a hard drive I was going through and I wanted to share it with y’all. I photographed this wedding back in 2012 for this lovely couple. I still remember driving up to the church and getting off and feeling the sun hit me. I remember how nervous the groom was. I remember the beautiful shots we took for them and how excited I was to show them off the back of my little screen on my DSLR.

This couple had their  wedding ceremony at their home church with close friends, family, and loved ones. It was a beautiful and emotional ceremony.  Soon after the couple  celebrated as newly weds at the the  beautiful mcallen wedding venue known as Rancho Quinta Luz located off 495 in McAllen, Texas. There we celebrated with them capturing all their fun and special moments. Here are my favorite shots from this wedding.

Cacheaux Cavazos Newton LLP – Attorney Head Shots – McAllen, Texas

I recently had the opportunity to take professional head shots for Cacheaux Cavazos Newton LLP, a law firm located in McAllen, Texas. My client Marissa Rodriguez, who is also one of the partners at the law firm booked us. They allowed us to use one of their boardroom to setup, which was very kind of them. I did two looks for them but today you will only be seeing one. I chose this beautiful blue because I thought it went with their branding and it would look professional and bold. Here are some of my favorite takes from this head shot session. 2018-11-14_00052018-11-14_00062018-11-14_00072018-11-14_00082018-11-14_00092018-11-14_00102018-11-14_00112018-11-14_00122018-11-14_00132018-11-14_00142018-11-14_0015

Sammy Turns 3 – San Juan, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Photographing this young lady was such a treat! Her mom told us that one day they were at church, The Basilica of the National Shrine of Our Lady of San Juan del Valle ,  and saw a quince taking photos on the church grounds rounds and that Sammy told her mom that she too wanted take pictures in a princess dress for her birthday. Well we made her wish come true. Sara and I loved working with her because she was so sweet and excited after every shot. We have worked with some younger clients before and Sammy has been one of the best.

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
