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! Here are my favorite shots from this session! Klyde Warren Park05.04.19_High Res_Luci Patrick Engagement_BBS-8923_WEB05.04.19_High Res_Luci Patrick Engagement_BBS-8953_WEBKlyde Warren ParkDallas Museum Of ArtDallas Center for the Performing ArtsDallas Center for the Performing ArtsDallas Center for the Performing ArtsDallas Center for the Performing ArtsMargaret Hunt Hill Bridge

Last Friday I gave an off-camera flash lesson to my student Jennifer. She had recently bought a new studio light and wanted to learn how to use it. My friend Paula was kind enough to volunteer to our model and she got a free photo shoot out of it!

I wanted to show off some of the amazing photos she was able to get!

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!
