Dandy Heat – Yerberia Cultura – McAllen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

TBT

In the summer I took some photos of my friends band performing at Yerberia Cultura in McAllen, Texas. Osmar and Joseph, the guitarist and bassist, are coworkers of mine at South Texas College. They didn’t hire me to photograph this show but I thought it would be nice to get them some great live shots for their brand. I had photographed an album cover for them a while back and thought photographing their show would add some more value to them because they are a very talented band. Here are my favorite shots from this show.

Guerrero Baptismal – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Today I got hired by the Guerrero family again to photograph their two other kids getting baptized. It’s always a special feeling when families call you back for special milestones in their lives.

Lorraine Bridal Shower – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

One thing that we enjoy photographing as well are Bridal Showers. Many of the brides that sign with us usually ask us if we could capture some photos at their bridal showers. I think it’s great to document these events because you get to meet more of the family and hangout more with the bride before the big day,

In this blog you will see us capturing special moments for our bride Lorraine, who I shot her engagement photos and wedding pictures as well. She had her bridal shower at the famous Birdie’S Bristo located in the heart of Downtown McAllen, Texas. It is such a cute and quaint place to have breakfast, brunch and bridal showers! Here are some of our favorite shots from this event.
