Nerva Charles Jr – Musician Portrait – Edinburg, Texas

There’s days when you just meet such a wonderful soul and things just click. Last week I met Nerva Charles Jr, a Christian Rapper, who’s music is fire and is about to do big things! Nerva booked us for an hour photo shoot but turned out to be a three hours long fun filled photo shoot and jam session.

These are my favorites shots from his photo shoot. He chose three awesome outfits the really popped and matched his personality. One of my favorites parts from the shoot was when he showed us some of his latest music and he went off allowing us to capture him in his form of worship. Look out for his music because he’s an extremely talented musician.

You can follow and link Nerva’s music here on his social media accounts!

Sara Montoya-Hernández – Head Shots – Edinburg, Texas

Today we had an amazing head shot photo session at my studio with the intelligent and beautiful Sara Montoya-Hernndez. Sara is in charge of the marketing department for the McAllen Public Library and was recently asked if she could be a panelist at a Social Media Summit in November being hosted by the Mission EDC.

I was also Sara’s wedding photographer a year ago when she married at the beautiful bistro named The Loretta at Mission. It’s always a great feeling having past clients come back to you for new work. It’s about the trust. Here are my favorite shots from the shoot!

Client Review

Law Office of Ignacio Mendoza Jr. – Head Shots – Ben Briones Studios

Yesterday I had an interesting soul enter my studio. Mr. Ignancio Mendoza Jr., a defense lawyer, out of McAllen, Texas. Mendoza is not your regular lawyer, he’s young, good looking and well educated but with that homeboy type feel.

Mendoza and I met through my friend Britny Rocha, who’s also a local lawyer and has done head shots at my photo studio. At studio during our photo session I got to know him a little better and the dude is pretty awesome if you need a lawyer give him a call. Mendoza has a new office at 10125 N. 10th St. Ste. A McAllen, Texas 78504 and can be reached at 956-287-4008.

These are some of my favorite shot from our head shot photo session.

Jefte Martinez – Musician Portrait – Edinburg, Texas

Jefte Martinez is a Christian Musician out of Mcallen, Texas. Jefte stopped by on a weekend this summer to take some portraits at my newly remodeled photography studio in Edinburg, Texas and these are the results of that photo shoot.

For this photo shoot I did a mix of both warm tones and cool tones to get two different effect for my client. When you own a studio you have the freedom to explore and especially if your client is game! Jefte was awesome because he trusted my judgment and allowed me to shoot freely. These are my favorite photos from this studio portrait session. P 06.03.17_PRINT_Jefte Martinez Portraits_BBS-6379_pp_BLOG06.03.17_PRINT_Jefte Martinez Portraits_BBS-6344_pp_BLOG06.03.17_PRINT_Jefte Martinez Portraits_BBS-6366_pp_BLOGP 06.03.17_PRINT_Jefte Martinez Portraits_BBS-6375_pp_BLOGP 06.03.17_PRINT_Jefte Martinez Portraits_BBS-6399_pp_BLOG

Dynamic Duo – Lourdes Paz & Sara Yanez – Ben Briones Studios

This summer Sara and Lourdes have been a tremendous help at the photo studio. Lourdes is a seasoned photographer who has managed a studio before and has a lot of experience being a professional photographer. Sara, on the other hand, is not a seasoned photographer but truly believes in me and my business and has invested her time into learning how it works and basically managing the office and even shooting and filming at events.  I couldn’t be more proud of the both and extremely thankful for everything they do for the business. 7U8B74907U8B7931

These two girls have more in common then they know. Both work for a school district outside of Ben Briones Studios. They both are into strange fashion. They both are artist in their own right. Sara is a musician and learning photographer and Lourdes a painter, graphic designer, drawer, and photographer. I am extremely fortunate to have them on the team and truthfully without them Ben Briones Studios wouldn’t be where it’s at. If you search their name in our blog you will find the work they do for the studio.

Jayda Gabrielle Portraits – Casa Polonia – Weslaco Texas

Pretty in pink, Miss Jayda Gabrielle looked stunning in her Quinceañera portraits that we took at Casa Polonia located of Texas Boulevard in Weslaco, TX.  The location’s timeless elegance went great with Jayda’s beautiful Quinceañera dresses. Jayda began her photo session wearing her classic soft pink gown, and later changed into a less formal hot pink dress. We took advantage of the diversity of the location, which made Jayda’s portraits look amazing!

O’Hanlon, Demerath & Castillo – Law Firm – Head Shots – Edinburg, Texas

Photography and law one time collided in thought. A year or two ago I had the crazy idea of dropping photography to purse a law degree. Obviously, the photography career won but I still dream about becoming a lawyer one day and although it’s a far-off thought I still get to mix the both.

Today we photograph lawyers and I am okay with that. My relationship with the law community has been through the The Hidalgo County Bar Association, which I have had the pleasure of capturing their annual event.

This month we photographed O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath, a law firm located at 220 S. Jackson Rd. in Edinburg. I really love how the photos came out for these professionals. We had a simple two light setup with a dark gray portable backdrop. We used a warm tone gel to change the background color as per the clients request. Everyone was super positive and professional and it really reflects in their portraits.

Miguel Garza – Head Shots – Edinburg, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

#TBT

Miguel Garza is an actor and singer living in New York, New Work. In 2011 Miguel contracted us to take some simple head shots for him. We shot his photos at The University of Texas Pan American. We found a beautiful location on campus via the Education building were we took the majority of the shots. I requested he bring three tops for three different looks. We tend to take head shots by request so each head shot session with us is unique to how you will be presenting your photos.
