Shawn & Mandy Wedding – South Padre Island, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

#FLASHBACKFRIDAY

The Kelley’s have been a longtime client of my studio. Truly since this I photographed their beautiful wedding. Today I wanted to share their South Padre Island wedding story with you. It has been since more than 4 years since the wedding but the photos are still so vibrant and relevant.

The wedding ceremony took place at the historic Chapel by the Sea located at 33425 State Park Rd 100, South Padre Island, TX. You could not ask for a more beautiful church for a wedding ceremony. Then the reception followed at the luxury hotel Blue Sapphire also found on the strip of South Padre Island, Texas.

This wedding will go down in my books as one of my all time favorite weddings of my career and this is why. The couple was just amazing to work with. Both Shawn and Mandy both believed in me, trusted my team, and gave us complete creative freedom. Secondly, Shawn and Mandy are one good looking couple and their baby girl is just gorgeous. A year or so ago I got to take their family photos at their dad’s ranch in San Antonio, Texas and they are just such a beautiful family. Lastly, the couple treated us like guest. They paid for our hotel at the beach resort, they treated us like guest throughout the wedding day and continued to treat me and my team like longterm friends years after their wedding day.

I don’t have many more words for this wedding because the photos themselves speak volumes and not because I and my team took them but because it was just such a special day!

It has been quite a journey with these two! Baltazar and Cynthia first of all I want to thank you for choosing me to document your love story, it has truly been a pleasure! The couple and I first met back in Dec 23, 2013 at my fist photo studio located on North 10th street in McAllen, Texas. Since then we have been meeting periodically. It has been such a blessing to see Cynthia and Baltazar grow together as a couple and finally seal the deal on June 6, 2015.

Not only did I get close to them but I also made a lot of great friends because I was introduced to their best friends. I am also extremely thankful to them because they took me and my shooting partner to Las Vegas, Nevada to document their bachelor and bachelorette party. Something like that is rare, especially when it is fully paid! I think that trip is when I really bonded with the couple.

Cynthia also hired me to photograph her graduation portraits at South Padre Island and that is where I begun to see her faith more lively. I love that I have seen this couples grow spiritually and build their relationship with The Lord and that has been such an amazing sight as well. Blessings upon blessings is what I think of when I think about this couple.
