Huff Wedding – Edinburg, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

The Huff’s had such a beautiful wedding that it would be a crime not to show off their wedding day story. The day started at there beautiful home where the bride, groom and their family got ready the big day. The couple then had a lovely ceremony at their home church in Edinburg, Texas. The highlight of the day was the reception which took place at the Museum of South Texas, which in my opinion is one of Edinburg, Texas best hidden wedding photography spots! Here are our favorite shots from this wedding!

Valentine’s Fujifilm XT-3 Photo Shoot – Sara Yanez – Edinburg City Hall

Yesterday we tested out the Fujifilm XT-3 in an evening outdoor setting and it did very well! We used a combination of ambient light, an eVOLV 200 with a beauty dish and an LED light.

Roche Wedding – Arelis Celebration Hall- Mission, Texas -Ben Briones Studios

John and Michelle tied the knot on a beautiful summer day! The couple got married at the beautiful ballroom Arelis Celebration Hall located in Mission, Texas. The couple were surrounded with their family and friends as they ate, drank and laughed. Our favorite part was the sparklers during the couples dance but along with that special moment there were many more captured. Here are some of our favorite shots from this wedding.

Lorraine Bridal Shower – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

One thing that we enjoy photographing as well are Bridal Showers. Many of the brides that sign with us usually ask us if we could capture some photos at their bridal showers. I think it’s great to document these events because you get to meet more of the family and hangout more with the bride before the big day,

In this blog you will see us capturing special moments for our bride Lorraine, who I shot her engagement photos and wedding pictures as well. She had her bridal shower at the famous Birdie’S Bristo located in the heart of Downtown McAllen, Texas. It is such a cute and quaint place to have breakfast, brunch and bridal showers! Here are some of our favorite shots from this event.

Sara Yanez – Musician Portraits – Ben Briones Studios

I have put off posting this blog for a while now… Two reason; one, what do you write about when the blog is featuring your super amazing talented gorgeous girlfriend? Secondly, how do you write to to please her and your audience? What if she hates what I wrote? What if she likes it but the people who read this think it’s silly?

I will tell you this. Sara A. Yanez, is and will always be, the best thing that life has allowed me to experience. When it comes to photography, because this is a photography blog, Sara is the perfect model and the best photography assistant anyone can ask for. When it comes to music, she’s my favorite person to jam out with and only person I want to be making music for and with. When it comes to life; she’s irreplaceable.

Here are my latest but not my last portraits of Sara A. Yanez. Enjoy! 06.03.17_PRINT_Sara Yanez_BBS-6592_pp_BLOG06.03.17_PRINT_Sara Yanez_BBS-6695_pp_BLOGP 06.03.17_PRINT_Sara Yanez_BBS-6639_pp_BLOGP 06.03.17_PRINT_Sara Yanez_BBS-6710_pp_BLOGP Sara Yanez-6578_pp_BLOGP Sara_Yanez_Head_Shots_BBS-6140_pp_BLOG

Jazmin Garza 25th Birthday Portraits – Edinburg Texas – Ben Briones Studios

#FLASHBACKFRIDAY

This past week (October 2017) we had an array of photo shoots but Jazmin’s by far topped all of them. She brought glam, beauty and and a whole lot of props into our small photo studio but we made it work!

Jazmin is celebrating her 25th birthday and we were excited to be part of it! The one thing we pride ourselves in at our studio is to one, make the client feel beautiful and two, make any of your vision come to live and I think we succeeded at both on Jazmin’s shoot!

Carolina Solis – Portraits – McAllen, Texas

Yesterday, a friend of mine asked me if I was available that same day for a quick photo shoot and being the workaholic that I am, I agreed to take on this challenge.

I typically shoot the majority of the time at f/4 but this time I decided to go open up to f/1.8 to since we were shooting in an area that would have pretty busy backgrounds. The open f-stop worked out well because it makes the model the main attraction of the photo. Carolina is a photographer herself so working with her was pretty easy. She had all her posing down. She even would make her self laugh to get those natural smiles to come out. Honestly, I just focused on being sharp and capturing the moment.

It was definitely a fun quick photo shoot and these are some of my favorite shots from the photo session with Ms. Carolina Solis. 11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2896_pp_WEB11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2875_pp_WEB11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2806_WEB11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2745_WEB11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2677_WEB11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2486_pp_WEB11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2432_WEB11.22.17_HighRes_Carolina Solis Portraits_BBS-2391_pp_WEB
