Bride-To-Be Miss Vanessa Reyna – Mcallen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Vanessa Reyna and her fiancé are such sweet hearts. What I really liked about them and thought was super unique was the involvement of the groom in the planning of their wedding. Ninety-nine percent of the time my main contact is the bride but for this couple, Mr. Michael took charge and was the one I spoke to. It’s cool to finally to talk to a man who was equally interested in the planning of his wedding.

At the beginning of the month, Vanessa had asked for a quote on photography for her bridal shower. The quote was created and sent out. Their budget was a little tight so they had replied and told they were going to pass on professional photography at the bridal party. I thought to myself, “I can’t let this just pass. I really like this couple and I want to serve them”. Lo and behold I sent them another offer and they accepted it. I dislike to leave my clients hanging without professional pictures at special events. As wedding photographers sometimes we have to step out of our comfort zone and serve our client and show them we really appreciate them.
