Emily & PJ Engagement – Hidalgo Pumphouse – Ben Briones Studios

The Old Hidalgo Pumphouse in Hidalgo, Texas is one of my favorite spots to shoot at because it’s so diverse in landscape and it’s very affordable as well. Those very reason’s is why we chose to take Emily & Pj’s Engagement photos there. This couple got in contact with me through a good friend, Ms. Georgette Rojas, who’s been friend with them for a very very long time through their parents. Georgette and her Dad have actually done a few photo shoots with me.

We took the couple around the whole venue taking beautiful shots of them around the building and the greenery. I really loved the outfit they had on because it was “fancy” yet casual enough to blend in with the rustic-ness of the Old Hidalgo Pumphouse. Here are some of my favorite shots from this engagement photo shoot.

On Demand Photographer

Yesterday Sara Yanez strutted into our photo studio we have at Grindstone Coworking and demanded a portrait because she was wearing a new black dress she recently bought! She was lucky I had my camera ready to go because I had just finished documenting some events at Games of Texas in the morning.  Okay maybe even if I didn’t have my camera ready I think I still would of prepared the gear. I mean just look at this portrait… isn’t she just gorgeous? When Sara and I first met I would always take portraits of her and I think its time I start that backup again!

There is something beautiful about photographing your significant other. There are so many photographers who actually never show their girlfriend or wife off and that’s a little strange to me. I try my best to show Sara off when the opportunity arises. It also helps that she is drop-dead gorgeous and has amazing style. Men I say you bring your girl to our studio and have Sara and I conduct a beauty portrait session for y’all.

Nick Moore – Attorney Head Shots – Ben Briones Studios

This week we had Mr. Nick Moore, a local attorney, stop by the Studio for professional head shots. Mr. Moore brought in two sports coats, which was perfect for the backgrounds we had setup for him. A mutual friend and fellow attorney, Ignacio Mendoza, referred Nick to us. A few months back we took Ignacio’s attorney head shots as well.

Depending on what the attorney does we try our best o get the best look for him or her. We tried a variety of positions and facial expressions for Mr. Moore and these seem to be my favorite shots. Take a peek and enjoy!
