Peña Wedding | Harlingen, Texas | Ben Briones Studios

At the start of the year a ex-coworker reached out to me to see if I could photograph his wedding. He had recently hired me before to help document his cousins wedding, so he was familiar with my work. Well I accepted the gig and I am glad I did. It was such as special and emotional wedding. I love how intimate it was as well.

Here are some of my favorite shots from this beautiful wedding! Enjoy. 2018-01-08_High Res_Pena Wedding_BBS--2_WEB2018-01-08_High Res_Pena Wedding_BBS--4_WEB2018-01-08_High Res_Pena Wedding_BBS--45_WEB2018-01-08_High Res_Pena Wedding_BBS--73_WEB2018-01-08_High Res_Pena Wedding_BBS--82_WEB2018-01-08_High Res_Pena Wedding_BBS--143_WEB2018-01-08_High Res_Pena Wedding_BBS--142_WEB

Onieda and Osiel – San Benito, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Oni and I grew up together so being the photographer at her wedding was super special. I use to go over to her house to hangout with her brother Marco and play music. Many times we would all walk home together from our high school to hangout and on her wedding night we all walked together down the isle on her special day!

Oni and Osiel put their trust in my team and I to capture their special day and I think they will be pleased with what we produced. The couple had a beautiful outdoor wedding at Oak Hills Event Center in San Benito, Texas. The wedding started right at sundown. The wedding went into the night where the romantic setting of the venue really was on display. Some of my favorite shots were of their first dance and when they danced with their mother. Along with those moments here are some of my favorite shots from the wedding.

Daniel and Viktoriia Wedding | Edinburg, Texas| Ben Briones Studios

I really enjoyed photographing this wedding and let me tell you why! I really enjoy documenting small weddings. Daniel and Viktoriia seemed to be easy going people too. Their wedding was outdoors in this beautified gated community where the grooms parents live. Their was a beautiful man-made lake in the distance with trees that dropped of fall leafs.

The timing couldn’t of been better as well. The couple got married a little before the sun set so it was fresh, the lighting was good and the mood was perfect. With the setting being picture perfect we took advantage of the setting to produce some beautiful portraits of the couple.

Inside their parents house was a lovely dinner setup. There the couple mingled, drank and ate with their loved ones and guest. I loved everything about this wedding!

Karen and Sergio Wedding | Mission Texas | Ben Briones Studios

This wedding was something special for me to witness because I saw Karen grow up. Karen is my best friends sister and because I consider my best friend family, she too is family. What I love is she hasn’t changed much too. Her humor is still awesome and she’s more beautiful than ever.

The bride and groom were already married but wanted to have a grand celebration with family and friends. They got ready at Karen’s mother’s home, where her parents helped them both prepare for the big day. We then took the couple to the beautiful Bryan House in Mission, Texas to take portraits of the couple before their ceremony and reception.

Their ceremony and reception took place at this beautiful elegant venue named Reyna’s Crown in Mission, Texas. I love how simple and intimate their ceremony because what really matters is the person next to you and her and Sergio were totally in the love zone. Right after followed a grand celebration. If you know the Cavazos family they know how to have fun and this wedding was extremely fun! Here are some sneak peeks from this wedding.

Christopher and Priscilla | Harligen Texas | Ben Briones Studios

Christopher and Pricilla’s wedding was sweet and so loved filled. The couple got married in Harlingen, Texas, which happens to be my birth city, but who cares about that…this blog is about this awesome couple! The two wed at their home church, Abundant Life Church, where they play on the worship team together and minister the youth. It was was a beautiful and emotional ceremony.

The wedding followed at a beautiful wedding venue named, La Cantera Event Center, also located in Harlingen, Texas. Christopher and Pricilla shared their first dance in front of their loved ones. I think one of my most favorite part of the night was the toast because their loved ones expressed how happy they were to be a part of such a beautiful wedding and how excited they were for their future.

Here are some of our favorite shots from this wedding. Enjoy!

Cristella & Louis Wedding – Valencia Event Center – Pharr, Texas

Cristella and Louis are the sweetest couple you will ever meet! It gives us great joy to have documented such a beautiful wedding. The venue couldn’t have been anymore perfect. The ceremony took place right when the sun was going down giving the couple such beautiful golden light.

Cristella and Louis live in Austin, Texas so most of my communication with them through phone or email, so I never really had the chance to host them at my office and get to know them. It wasn’t until I scheduled an engagement photo shoot in Austin with them that I really got to see their personality and dynamic as a couple. Their fun and inviting personality carried over to their wedding day, which made for great fun photos.

Here are some of our favorite shots from Cristella and Louis Wedding. Enjoy!

Nikki and Eric – Edinburg Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Shevawne or Nikki as she’s known to the rest of the world just got married not to long ago and I’m extremely happy to finally show off some of our favorite shots from her wedding!

She and I go way back to middle school where we first became friends. Nikki comes from a beautiful family and now is starting one of her own with her husband Eric James!

The couple and their daughter had their big day in September! Everything that day seemed to be moving so fast but we captured it as best we could. We were contacted to photograph the beginning part of her wedding up to the portraits. Later a well known and respected photographer capture the evening portion. Growing up with Nikki just made being the photographer for her wedding that much more special. She’s such a strong woman that has overcome many obstacles and seeing her glow that day was priceless!

Because words will not do these photos justice I️ will instead allow you to see her wedding story as it captures through our lens.

Abigal and Andrew had special request to be photographed with their two dogs, which we happily photographed this newly formed family of four!
