Ryan & Mikayla Wedding – Brownsville Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Sara and I had the pleasure of meeting this beautiful young Brownsville, Texas couple and capturing their wedding on film for them. We were contracted to film the wedding not photograph it but when I saw the opportunity to bless the couple with a few formal wedding portraits I jumped on it. We had gone on a limo ride with the couple to capture some film and noticed their photographer did not tag along so I offered to take a few portrait of them and these were some of my favorite moments I captured. 07.20.19_High Res_Ryan Mikayla Wedding_BBS-961107.20.19_High Res_Ryan Mikayla Wedding_BBS-963407.20.19_High Res_Ryan Mikayla Wedding_BBS-964807.20.19_High Res_Ryan Mikayla Wedding_BBS-968107.20.19_High Res_Ryan Mikayla Wedding_BBS-969507.20.19_High Res_Ryan Mikayla Wedding_BBS-971107.20.19_High Res_Ryan Mikayla Wedding_BBS-9714

Luci & Patrick Engagement – Dallas, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Luci and I go way back to the start of my college years, so these engagement portraits were very meaningful. Patrick, Luci’s fiance, is such an amazing cool guy and made the photo shoot ten times more fun! They are the perfect match and it really shows in these photos. I couldn’t wait to show them off!

We shot a various places downtown Dallas, Texas. We started off at Kyde Warren Park were we got to photograph the couple with their puppy. I was also able to grab some other beautiful shots at the park too. We then walked over to the Dallas Museum of Art to take more cute pics by the famous mural on their driveway. The Dallas Center for the Performing Arts was another great location and we finally ended the evening at the beautiful and famous Margaret Hunt Bridge!

Huff Wedding – Edinburg, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

The Huff’s had such a beautiful wedding that it would be a crime not to show off their wedding day story. The day started at there beautiful home where the bride, groom and their family got ready the big day. The couple then had a lovely ceremony at their home church in Edinburg, Texas. The highlight of the day was the reception which took place at the Museum of South Texas, which in my opinion is one of Edinburg, Texas best hidden wedding photography spots! Here are our favorite shots from this wedding!

Britny & Ignacio Announcement – Tomorrow There Will Be More of Us! – Edinburg, Texas

From shooting their engagement photos, to traveling with my team to Fredericksburg, Texas to document their wedding day, I have been photographing Britny and Ignacio’s special moments up to now.  Being given the opportunity to once more be a part of another milestone in their lives by photographing their baby announcement was exciting!

Britny had great ideas.  She wanted a theater as the location to shoot this announcement.  We scouted around town and decided to use the Edinburg Municipal Auditorium and the Citrus Theater located down town Edinburg, Texas.  Tell us how we did, these are our favorite shots.

Congratulations, Britny and Ignacio!

Ashley and Juan Wedding – Hacienda San Juan – Ben Briones Studios

Ashley and Juan’s Wedding day began at their parents home. It was a special sight to see the couple getting ready with their family. The couple currently lives in Austin, Texas, where we took their engagement photos, so to be back home on such a momentous day must have been very exciting for everyone. The couple had a beautiful catholic ceremony at Holy Spirt in McAllen, Texas where we also took their wedding day portraits. On the way to their venue in San Juan, Texas we stopped at the Basilica Of Our Lady of San Juan del Valle – National Shrine to take more photos of the couple. Finally we ended the night with a beautiful reception at the gorgeous rebranded wedding venue now known as Hacienda San Juan located in San Juan, Texas. Here are my favorite photos from their wedding day.
