Alondra Alaniz – Mcallen, Texas – Ben Briones Studio

Every girl will go through this stage in her life where she transitions from a young woman to an adult. I believe God has given this young lady a spotlight in this world. If my photographs could tell her story, this is what they would say: “Her dress is uniquely tailored for her, her headpiece gently wrapped around her as if it were a crown because she is royalty in God’s eyes. She walked in grace on the tips of her dance shoes needing not fancy sparkly heals, she stood tall on her own.”

As a photographic storyteller I present chapter 15 of Alondra Alaniz’s life.

Jackie Ortiz Quince – Weslaco, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

This session was definitely a special one. Thank you Ortiz family for allowing me in your life and trusting my brand to capture these beautiful pictures of Jackie Ortiz in celebration of her 15th birthday!

The location that was chosen for the portraits and event is a beautiful outdoor venue named Hacienda Paraiso in Weslaco, Texas. Jackie’s dress alone had so much pop! I honestly really happy with these results because I felt like it flowed so smoothly.  And the fact you allowed me to be as creative as I wanted really added to these beautiful images.

Destiny Love Peña – Quince – Mcallen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

I once went through a phase where I would tell people I only shot weddings but you know what? Screw that! I am a photographer; plain and simple! My job is to serve my community, my clients and my God through this special gift. This quineañera has inspired me to rekindle that love for that In-The-Moment-Photojournalism style that makes my brand Ben Briones Studios stand out! Carol and Destiny, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reminding me and inspiring me that special days like this one is the sole purpose why I love photography.

Let me tell you a little bit about this beautiful family. Carol, the mom, is so animated and loving.  There is never a dull moment with her. Her husband (a.k.a. Chubby) as hard as he looks, he is such a sweet-heart. Carol and Chubby have two younger girls and a boy who are so lovable as well, but Destiny Love Peña is something special in her own way (as I’m sure her other siblings are special at their own rights). Destiny has her mother’s beauty. When she speaks, you can tell this 15-year old is extremely smart. Actually, she’s an all A student and is currently attending South Texas College. Her parents have done such a beautiful job raising this young lady and on December 6, 2014 they celebrated her entry into womanhood.

Destiny’s quince was extremely fun and elegant. From the thumping beats that blasted, her party bus, to the last family portrait, I  can truly say my team and I really enjoyed ourselves. The  family rented one of my all time favorite venue’s, D’Gala in McAllen, Texas. Destiny’s dress was amazing and uniquely made just for her. She glowed all night. Loved ones and friends filled the beautifully decorated venue with laughter, dancing and affection for the quince. Destiny Love Peña, thank you for inspiring me and trusting me to capture such a memorable time in your life. Love you Carol, Destiny and family. Enjoy!

Special thanks to Imanol Miranda and Ramiro Galvan.

Messalinda Anzaldua – Make-A-Wish Rio Grande Valley – La Feria, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Giving back is extremely important for me and my brand. This past weekend I photographed a quinceanera for a special girl. Make-A-Wish Rio Grande Valley put together a fifteenth-birthday-celebration for Messalinda Anzaldua. Mind you, I did not know this young lady and when Ava Sandlin, the executive director of Make-A-Wish Rio Grande Valley, reached out to me a about this event, I automatically said YES.

I am extremely blessed to be able to donate my services to such a awesome foundation. This is what I live for! Special events like these are the sole reason God has given me this ability to share with his people. I have been called to collect memories, capture life and provide a recollection a moment in time that can always be repeated through photography. Messalinda Anzaldua,  I don’t know you but from the photographs we took that night I saw how beautiful your life is and how many people love you.

Special thanks to Felicia Sepulveda of Shutterbelle Photography volunteering her time and helping.
