Special thanks to CJ and The Hidalgo County Bar Association for allowing us to capture such a fun and unique event! I love the 80’s Prom theme! The decor was spot on, the food looked amazing and the music was just right!
Every Law Day Gala just keeps getting better and better. I love the ones from the previous year but this one is going down on record as my favorite. Sara and I enjoyed seeing happy faces and people dancing their hearts out to awesome 80’s jams. Hope we can do it again next year!

A while back my good friend Luis Trevino, owner of Create the Bridge, a local and national marketing agency, asked me to aid him with a project. He was working on a campaign for a local Rio Grande Valley business that “pimps out” Mercedes Benz Sprinters. The customization on these vehicles are beautiful. From detailing to window tinting and all the way to installing the latest Xbox system in van. A truly work of art for those who can afford such a nice luxury.
My favorite part of this unique photo shoot with this beautiful Mercedes Benz Sprinter was to get it in action. We took it out to Granjeno, Texas on a very disclosed road where the driver could take the Sprinter back and forth. My objective was to get the Sprinter zooming past the camera or heading toward my perspective. To say the least it was very fun. Enjoy!

There is nothing better than seeing your friends succeed and better yet to see those who have also been your clients. On November 18, 2016 my clients Guilherme Farias Da Costa and Isabel Da Costa hosted their grand opening for their new gym Amazonas MMA Gym in Edinburg, Texas.
Amazonas MMA Gym offers training in MMA, BJJ, or Muay Thai. They have classes for both children and adults. Their class times vary so you may want to call them to find out more about the class times and details on the courses. They attend to both male and female and you do not have to be interested in fighting professionally to train with them. The workouts alone are intense enough.
The main coach Guilherme Farias Da Costa is a professional fighter from Brasil. He has over 10 professional armature wins under his belt. He holds high credentials in MMA, BBJ, and Muay Thai and is an excellent personal trainer. I urge everyone who’s looking for a great gym to join Amazonas MMA Gym located at 4618 US 281 Edinburg, Texas.

Back in July I was contracted to take some images of the new upgraded suites at Victoria Palms Inn & Suites in Donna, Texas. You know, the one with all the big palm trees off the highway you always see on your way to the Mercedes Outlet Mall.
I’ve done some hotel photography before for a client who owns and manages the Best Western Plus Inn & Suites in Edinburg, Texas of Canton Rd but it had been a while. I prepared for this job by researching and watching videos. Most of the photographers online who do hotel and resort photography had a simple setup and mostly used HDR to produce the images the client wanted. So I followed suit and took my simple setup and produced some straight-forward shots of the newly upgraded rooms at Victoria Palms.
The best part about this job was getting to hangout with one of my most dearest friends Amanda Grace Monroy , who also happens to be the coordinator for special events or something fancy like that for the resort. We rode around in a golf club catching up on life. There’s nothing better than taking photos with good friends.
In the past three years I have attended some events at Victoria Palms and its a beautiful location. Here are my renditions of the beautiful Inn.

One evening I got a call from one of my clients. I thought maybe he had question about his wedding package he and his fiancé had booked with me. No, he told me he had secretly took his fiancé’s engagement ring because he wanted to upgrade it and re-propose to her.
Now if you know Baltazar you know that he’s a big jokester and has this specific laugh when you know he’s up to no good. That laugh was what followed by his idea in our phone call. I was so down to help him with this idea. So we set a meeting at a local Starbucks and planned out the idea.
After brain storming we decided to do this re-proposal as so. Before anything he was going to provide me with images from every year they have been together so that I can print 4×6 size prints and fame them. I was to attach that frame to a baby blue balloon, where I would lay them out in order at a park but lets layout how it went down.
First, Batlazar was to book a reservation at SALT American Table in McAllen, Texas for him and his Cynthia for her birthday. According to them it almost didn’t happen but Balthazar convinced Cynthia to take a break from studying and enjoy a night out. Next, while they were enjoying dinner I setup the pictures and balloons at park. The plan was for them to get there and the balloons would lead to a bridge where a musician (Sara Yanez) was hidden under and would come out to perform Cynthia’s favorite song.
We setup up 3 hidden video camera and two photographers to capture images as well. As the couple walked up the bridge one more balloon would be released from the bottom to grab the attention of Cynthia so she can look down and see the Musican perform for them. And that’s where Baltazar would propose to her once more with now an upgrade ring.

Images photographed for Create The Bridge
One of my good friends, Luis Trevino, who is Co-Founder & CMO at Create The Bridge contracted to photograph these amazing drinks created by a unique seafood restaurant in Roma, Texas. I don’t know about you but I love seafood and Barquito Oyster Bar is the seafood restaurant of Roma, Texas. On top of their great food they have these one-of-a-kind mixed drinks.
I will be honest…I had never photographed drinks before. I have photographed food and still life but never prepared drinks. Well with some old school photography knowledge, a little bit of confidence and snoot I got the job done.
If you ever happen to be in Roma, Texas and feeling the craving for some seafood and good drinks you have to visit Barquito Oyster Bar located 2042 E Grant St, Roma, TX 78584. Checkout what the online community is saying about this awesome seafood place.
