Anyone ever done a 4am photo shoot at South Padre Island? It’s a lot of fun especially if you are professional photographer. The colors are beautiful and capturing an image like that for your client is such a treat! The sky from sunrise and on on a beautiful morning at beach front will always get you great images. Here are some photos I took for my client at South Padre Island.

Studying is an important part of being a great student. When I was in school at The University of Texas at Austin I would do my best to put in at least 2-4 hours of studying, especially if it was a hard course I was taking. When my client Taylor asked me to take these unique portraits of her studying I was on it. I found it odd but unique because to her school mattered, a lot. Taylor was studying to be a medical doctor and she wanted to capture this journey in her educational pathway before things got more crazier for her. Here are these fun study photos of Ms. Taylor seven years ago!

This past weekend I was able to work with Ms. Vanessa once again. Vanessa and I have been friends for some time now and she has trusted me to document some of the most special moments in her life. Sunday we celebrated her achievement as a graduate from South Texas College with a bachelors degree through an awesome photoshoot.
I have photographed Vanessa’s maternity photos, her most recent birthday, her graduation portraits, and soon her family photos. Here are some of my favorite photos taken by myself and my team.

ADVICE FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS
In 2016 I had a major hard drive failure with a 1TB Seagate and a 4TB Lacie, which were both regular Hard Drives. I lost client wedding photos but months later was able to recover them!
After that incident I went from HHDs to SSDs because they are much more reliable, faster and portable. Today I’ve officially gone back to HDDs and let me tell you why.
In the photography industry there is always innovation. Things get smaller, faster, better built, more intelligent and easier to access. In 2017 I had issues with the amount of space I had to backup my files. 1TB was not enough for the pace my studio was growing plus the amount of video production gigs we are booking. So quickly my 1TB SSDs ran out of space and we had to turn to the cloud to backup storage space. Files where spread everywhere and that was not safe. I was using both Dropbox Pro and Amazon Drive, plus a combo of different SSD and regular HD drives.
The issue is not that HHD are not reliable it’s how safe you keep them. Safety means not moving them, good enclosures and having enough space that you won’t have to be saving files anywhere else.
In 2018 we are working with 4TB of local HHD space for the year on RAID 1. We are also using Adobe Lightroom to backup and archive files because dragging and dropping files or folders from a mounted memory card to a hard drive is faulty. I advice all photographers to setup their Lightroom, Photo Mechanic’s or even iPhoto app to backup your files when you mount your memory card.
I can’t dictate how you should backup your files but I would give you this advice. Always back them up right after your shoot or event and double that backup because those pictures are one in a lifetime memories that you might not be able to replace. Ready my personal story on that here: https://benbriones.com/2017/04/23/mistakes-of-a-photographer-ben-briones-studios/
Janet and Chris are one of the most sweetest, fun and energetic couples you will ever meet! And we had the honor of documenting their special day with their loved ones!
The ceremony which was held at Janet’s parent’s house. It was intimate and beautiful. Her closest family and friends all gathered to witness these two exchange their heartfelt vows and celebrate their holy matrimony. The couple had officially tied the knot before but wanted to make a celebration for their loved ones.
The reception that followed after was full of fun, laughter, dancing and even singing! Janet and Chris, thank you for entrusting us to capture this special moment of your lives, we wish you a lifetime of joy and love!

Beautiful. Bold. Intelligent. Studious. Adventurous. Strong. These are all nouns to describe Ms. Susan Sanchez, a graduate of The University of Texas at Austin. I met Susy while attending UT through a mutual friend. She and I became friends and kept in touch and when it was time to celebrate the achievement of completing not only one but two undergrad degrees she contacted me to document this special moment.
It’s been a a few years since this photo shoot and Susy is now saving lives and keeping the people of Austin, Texas safe. I wish you the best friend. I am very proud of you! \m/
