Ginger Garza – 35mm Film – Edinburg, Texas

To those who don’t know I give private photography lessons to about 2-3 students and at one of my lessons I decided to also become a student of photography and practice shooting 35mm film with my Canon AE-1. We held our lesson at the beautiful Edinburg City Hall located in the heart of the city.

At the scenarios that I setup our returning volunteer model, Ms. Ginger Garza, I also took a few snaps of what my students were capturing and these were my best shots.

Alexa & Mateo E-session – McAllen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

A few months ago I had the crazy idea that i wanted to shoot a full fledge wedding in 35mm film! Right around this time my friend Alexa had gotten engaged to her handsome fiancé Mateo, so I reached out to her and offered her free photography services for her wedding if she allowed me to shoot it completely in film.

Like any photography package I offer I always like to shoot engagement photos too! Today I got back the developed imaged from my rolls and the photos are beautiful! Out of 3 rolls at about 35 frames each I was able to produce around 23 gorgeous images of the couple. I shot with two cameras; my Canon AE1 and Nikon FM10 using Kodak and Fuji Film.

Here are my favorite 12 images that honestly sum the beautiful photo session of the couple!

The very amazing and talented Stephanie Rios Photography is the contracted photographer for the couple and I am just shooting for personal growth.001304590002001304590008001304590010001304590014001304600014001304590020001304590026001304590027001304610008001304610012001304610016001304610019

Celena Jacobsen – 35mm Film – Ben Briones Photography

Many years back I did a photo shoot of my friend Celina Jacobsen, now Celina Jacobsen Norton. I shot her wedding by the way. I took these 35mm film shots at her aunt’s home in Edinburg, Texas with my Canon AE-1 using Ilford Delta 100 Professional Black and White Film.

I am pretty sure I also took some digital photos at the same time but I cannot find them but when I do I will link them HERE. I love the grain and scratches in the film. I want to do more film photo shoots so if you are down let me know. Enjoy my favorite shots.
