Michele Garcia Bridal’s – Archer Park – McAllen, Texas

#TBT

In 2011 my business was growing fast and we were doing a lot of great work for our clients. I was discovering a lot of new shoot locations and for this bridal we took the risk and used two very accessible and public locations, which is not typical for bridal sessions. These days I am renting very fancy locations for my brides but I am glad to show my beginnings. Michelle, the bride, was a trooper. She trusted our vision!

Her photos were shot in two different locations by myself and my assistant at the time, Ms. Lori Alaniz. Archer park was the more “formal” location then we traveled to a abandoned shack on 10th street in McAllen for the “informal” location. I love the contrast between the two looks and I think it’s always important to try different things for your clients. Here are my favorite shots from this 2011 bridal photo shoot.

Stacie Longoria – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Bridal portrait sessions are some of my favorite photo shoots to conduct but it’s always so hard to show them off because we have to keep them secret so the groom won’t see them. Here are some I took back in 2014 for Mrs. Stacie at Memory Lane Photo Spot. This venue makes for beautiful bridal portraits because of style of the home and how they family has it decorated. Stacie was also amazing to work with because she trusted my creative eye and was a gorgeous bride. Here are my favorite shots from this bridal session.

Pricilla Garcia – Bridal – Ben Briones Studios – McAllen, Texas

Photo shoots can be intimidating sometimes! Mrs. Pricilla was a little shy at first during her bridal photo shoot but as we shot she loosened up. She chose to go with the a studio photo session. To keep it classic. I’m glad she did because it challenged us to be more creative and experiment. Typically most bridal sessions we do are on-location but this one was different and we love the results.

I’m pretty excited to release these photos because she’s just such a beautiful bride! Take a peek at our favorites from this studio bridal session. Since this shoot Mrs. Priscilla married Mr. Christopher Garcia and you can view their wedding by clicking this link: Christopher and Priscilla Wedding.

Chloe Ayala Bridals – Hacienda Capilla del Rio – Rio Grande City

We photographed these beautiful bridals of Chloe back in December of 2016 at a private ranch called Hacienda Capilla del Rio in Rio Grande City, Texas. It was the perfect setting for her wedding theme. Jessica and I photographed Chloe in different locations around the Villa using a mixture of studio lighting and ambient light.

Chloe was amazing at the shoot. She trusted us with some crazy ideas but she too had some very nice visions that we executed for her as well. I fell in love with all the photos because of how beautiful the bride looked and how cool the theme was. Enjoy these top favorite shots.

Jessica Marie Berrones – Bridal – Mcallen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Another 2012 treasure being released just for you! I really want to go on this rampage of release some of my old work even if it’s not good. Maybe my work was better back then and I need to post these so I can get back on my game? I will let you all be the judge of that!

This bridal photo session was taken at he Quinta Mazatlan World Birding Center. For this session I remember I really tried to use a lot more of the inside and have fun with the lighting. The bride is gorgeous so it was super easy to pose her in any location of the facility. Super props to my best friend Daniela “aka Weta”, who assisted me with this bridal session.

One thing about my photography or my business is that I never fail to give kudos to my support system which includes hired assistance, friends, family or the client themselves. Thank you Jessica Marie Berrones for trusting me to capture these special moments in your life. Many blessings for your marriage and family.

Ruth Reyes – Bridal – McAllen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Talk about throwback, flashback and way back when… I took these beautiful photos of Mrs. Reyes in 2012 a few months before her wedding. We shot these at the Quinta Mazatlan World Birding Center located in South McAllen.

I was young, ambitious and straight out of college. My goal was to make a name of myself among many of the great photographers her in the Rio Grande Valley. You can see me exploring and trying to find my style in a lot of my very first professional shoots such as this one.

When you first starting shooting you want to try everything and soon after you find your footing and build on that style. I think if you look at this and my current work you can see that from 2012 to 2016 my photography style has been consistent. Thank you Mrs. Ruth for allowing me to capture these special moments for you as I took was climbing milestones in my life. Enjoy!
