Nydia Quince Session – Hummingbird Springs – Donna, Texas

One of the most beautiful locations to take portraits at is Hummingbird Springs located in Donna, Texas. We took Nydia’s quince portraits here because she was looking for greenery with a twist of country. We also made another stop at a very special place to her and the family, at her grandfather’s gravesite. He left her behind the patches seen on her jean jacket. Enjoy some of our favorite shots from this quince portrait session. 08.26.18_HighRes_Nydia Quince Session_BBS-10_WEB08.26.18_HighRes_Nydia Quince Session_BBS-15_WEB08.26.18_HighRes_Nydia Quince Session_BBS-18_WEB08.26.18_HighRes_Nydia Quince Session_BBS-24_WEB08.26.18_HighRes_Nydia Quince Session_BBS-32_WEB08.26.18_HighRes_Nydia Quince Session_BBS-38_WEB08.26.18_HighRes_Nydia Quince Session_BBS-42_WEB08.26.18_HighRes_Nydia Quince Session_BBS-46_WEB08.26.18_HighRes_Nydia Quince Session_BBS-6_WEB

Ember & Adrian + 1 – Hummingbird Estates – Donna, Texas

In 2011 – 2012 or so I photographed this couples engagement photos and wedding. Just shy of mother’s day I photographed their maternity photos as well. I really enjoy seeing the couples I work with grow together and start a family. This is one of the main reasons why I have chosen to a professional photographer.

When Ember reached out to me to take these photos she seemed set on my services so we moved on quickly to try to get a location and we chose Donna, Texas’ very own wedding venue; Hummingbird Estates A.K.A. Hummingbird Springs. I have shot there a few times and always loved how the photos come out but this time around it was very special and man did the photos come out lovely!

Rene Family Session – Hummingbird Springs – Donna, Texas

We had a really fun time photographing this small but adorable family.  Our session took place at Hummingbird Springs in Donna, Texas.  Selecting the location was a big part of this session.  The family wanted to go to a place that had the mission style home in the background.  And was glad we were able to shoot at this location. Hummingbird springs has the beautiful greenery gardens on one side and their charming house on the other. Perfect for what the clients were looking for close to home here in the RGV.

Overall the session went great!  It wasn’t a hot day as usual for being around 4, that was a major bonus.   They wore super cute matching clothing that made the photos look every well put together.  We just had a little hiccup when Little baby Ruiz got a bit fuzzy but we trooped on.  I was even able to catch a big smile from baby Ruiz!

Sandra and Alex E-Session | Hummingbird Springs | Donna, Texas

On January 10th, 2017 we photographed Sandra and Alex at Donna’s Hummingbird Springs with their two dogs. It was easy to see the amount of love their dogs are showered with by these two but moreover how much love the couple has for each other!

Both Sandra and Alex are in law enforcement and both have their discipline but that day they reminded us that flirting is a key to a happy relationship. They are so sweet and awesome together. We were honored they chose us to photograph their love story. Thank you both for your service, above everything you two are the ones who put your life on the line for us regardless of who we are or what we believe, for that we thank you so much!

Victoria Palms Inn & Suites – Hotel Resort Photography – Ben Briones Studios

Back in July I was contracted to take some images of the new upgraded suites at Victoria Palms Inn & Suites in Donna, Texas. You know, the one with all the big palm trees off the highway you always see on your way to the Mercedes Outlet Mall.

I’ve done some hotel photography before for a client who owns and manages the Best Western Plus Inn & Suites in Edinburg, Texas of Canton Rd but it had been a while. I prepared for this job by researching and watching videos. Most of the photographers online who do hotel and resort photography had a simple setup and mostly used HDR to produce the images the client wanted. So I followed suit and took my simple setup and produced some straight-forward shots of the newly upgraded rooms at Victoria Palms.

The best part about this job was getting to hangout with one of my most dearest friends Amanda Grace Monroy , who also happens to be the coordinator for special events or something fancy like that for the resort. We rode around in a golf club catching up on life. There’s nothing better than taking photos with good friends.

In the past three years I have attended some events at Victoria Palms and its a beautiful location. Here are my renditions of the beautiful Inn.
