Modern jiu-jitsu Grand Opening – McAllen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

A few weekends ago we photographed the Grand Opening of Modern jiu-jitsu, an elite  jiu-jitsu training gym located in the heart of McAllen, Texas. We have worked with them before covering a special event they had at their first location so it was an honor to get to document another milestone for them.

One of our past clients and my friend Gio, is an instructor at the gym. He’s actually the one that helped us get the gigs. Special thanks to him! Check out some of the photos from this successful grand opening for the best jiu-jitsu gym in the Rio Grande Valley.   03.24.18_PRINT_Modern jiu-jitsu Grand Opening_BBS-8894_WEB03.24.18_PRINT_Modern jiu-jitsu Grand Opening_BBS-9246_WEB03.24.18_PRINT_Modern jiu-jitsu Grand Opening_BBS-9056_WEB

2017 Law Day Gala – 80’s Prom – McAllen Convention Center

Special thanks to CJ and The Hidalgo County Bar Association for allowing us to capture such a fun and unique event! I love the 80’s Prom theme! The decor was spot on, the food looked amazing and the music was just right!

Every Law Day Gala just keeps getting better and better. I love the ones from the previous year but this one is going down on record as my favorite. Sara and I enjoyed seeing happy faces and people dancing their hearts out to awesome 80’s jams. Hope we can do it again next year!

Amazonas MMA Gym – Edinburg, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

There is nothing better than seeing your friends succeed and better yet to see those who have also been your clients. On November 18, 2016 my clients Guilherme Farias Da Costa and Isabel Da Costa hosted their grand opening for their new gym Amazonas MMA Gym in Edinburg, Texas.

Amazonas MMA Gym offers training in MMA, BJJ, or Muay Thai. They have classes for both children and adults. Their class times vary so you may want to call them to find out more about the class times and details on the courses. They attend to both male and female and you do not have to be interested in fighting professionally to train with them. The workouts alone are intense enough.

The main coach Guilherme Farias Da Costa is a professional fighter from Brasil. He has over 10 professional armature wins under his belt. He holds high credentials in MMA, BBJ, and Muay Thai and is an excellent personal trainer. I urge everyone who’s looking for a great gym to join Amazonas MMA Gym located at 4618 US 281 Edinburg, Texas.

The Style Union Launch Party @ Francisca’s Showroom – McAllen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

The Style Union had their official launch party to celebrate their new Pop Up Store located in Francisca’s Showroom in McAllen, Texas. Alexa Carancca, friend and co-founder, hosted my photo booth at their event. I had such a great time seeing people roll in and interact with the owners and walk out with bags full of goodies.

I have known Alexa for quite some time now. She’s a creative, a photographer, a sports car enthusiast, and big time fashionista. That day I also met the other half to the union, Ms. Patty, who also is a creative, businesswoman and videographer. This team are truly shakers and movers of the RGV Fashion Scene.

The Style Union was created in February 2016 by both Alexa and Patty post college graduation. The duo wanted to create a store that they would personally love to shop at as it was always a challenge to find stores that appealed to their personal styles. I would describe the products at The Style Union casual chic dipped in modern young professional.

That evening I was just going to run the photo booth but I volunteered myself to be the unofficial photographer for the launch party since Alexa is a dear friend and I support local entrepreneurs. Wishing Ms. Alexa and Patty much success with The Style Union!  Here are the results of the successful event. Enjoy! The Style Union Launch Party_HighRes_BBS-3225_BLOG

Chick-Fil-A – Pharr, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

One day I was enjoying an awesome lunch at the new Chick-Fil-A in Pharr, Texas. I had my computer out and some hard drives on the table working away on the latest work. A Chick-Fil-A employee came up to my table and asked if I was doing well then asked what I was doing. I told her I was a photographer and working on some photos and videos for my clients. She took interest and kept asking more questions.

Little did I know that the store owner was sitting right behind me and overhead our conversation. He asked me for a business card and said one of these days he may need some photos to help promote the store. We set a meeting to discuss what was needed and agreed on shooting a breakfast, lunch and dinner sessions with the store guest. Talk about divine meetings! Praise God!

The photos you are seeing today are from the breakfast session at the Chick-Fil-A Pharr, Texas.

Go, Go, Go! This Chick-Fil-A is located at 2023 Interstate Highway 2 Pharr,TX 78577.chick fil a pharr texas ben briones studios mcallen texas photographer 02.25.16_FB_Chick-Fil-A Pharr_Ben Briones Studios-2_FB_BBS chick fil a pharr texas ben briones studios mcallen texas photographer chick fil a pharr texas ben briones studios mcallen texas photographer chick fil a pharr texas ben briones studios mcallen texas photographer chick fil a pharr texas ben briones studios mcallen texas photographer chick fil a pharr texas ben briones studios mcallen texas photographer chick fil a pharr texas ben briones studios mcallen texas photographer chick fil a pharr texas ben briones studios mcallen texas photographer chick fil a pharr texas ben briones studios mcallen texas photographer chick fil a pharr texas ben briones studios mcallen texas photographer chick fil a pharr texas ben briones studios mcallen texas photographer chick fil a pharr texas ben briones studios mcallen texas photographer chick fil a pharr texas ben briones studios mcallen texas photographer chick fil a pharr texas ben briones studios mcallen texas photographer

2015 Law Day Gala – Mcallen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

A few weeks ago I attended the 2015 Law Day Gala hosted by the Hidalgo County Bar Association at the McAllen Convention Center in McAllen, Texas. It was pretty exciting to be around so many professionals. What as more awesome was some of my past clients were in attendance as well. I always think God puts in me the right places at the right time.

I am very thank for the opportunity to provide photography and photo booth services for this special event. Just being around so many successful people has sparked something in me that I should continue my education and challenge myself to reach high standards of success in a professional field.

Photographers I urge to take on any job opportunity, even if it’s not of your niche because you never what might inspire you or who you will meet.

Congratulations to Mrs. Irma Guzman and her new venture Timeless Wedding & Events! Mrs. Guzman is an up-and-coming wedding and event planner who is ready to take on your special day and relieve all stresses of preparing for it. Having sat down with Irma a few times I have been able to get an inside look at what she wants to offer her clients and let me tell you this: with Irma, you become family. On another note I had the privilege of being Irma’s exclusive wedding photographer for her special day. You can see the images here at this link: Irma & Thomas Wedding. Being a newly wed bride, Mrs. Guzman is more than qualified to plan your event.
