A few months ago I had the crazy idea that i wanted to shoot a full fledge wedding in 35mm film! Right around this time my friend Alexa had gotten engaged to her handsome fiancé Mateo, so I reached out to her and offered her free photography services for her wedding if she allowed me to shoot it completely in film.
Like any photography package I offer I always like to shoot engagement photos too! Today I got back the developed imaged from my rolls and the photos are beautiful! Out of 3 rolls at about 35 frames each I was able to produce around 23 gorgeous images of the couple. I shot with two cameras; my Canon AE1 and Nikon FM10 using Kodak and Fuji Film.
Here are my favorite 12 images that honestly sum the beautiful photo session of the couple!
The very amazing and talented Stephanie Rios Photography is the contracted photographer for the couple and I am just shooting for personal growth.

I love this engagement session because it’s the perfect example of how I like to model my engagement photo shoots. I always tell my couples to choose at least two photo shoot locations and two outfits. The first location should be a more fancy or more formal place they can dress up for formal shots. The second locations is a place where they can have fun and dress down like a park.
This lovely couple chose the McAllen Convention Center as their formal location and Robin Park, behind Trenton View Plaza, for their fun location. The outfits they chose matched the location perfectly. Here are my favorite shots from this photo shoot!

A few weekends back while in Austin, Texas my clients and I setup an engagement photo shoot on a day that was suppose be be pouring rain but honestly all that was pouring that day was these bomb a– photos!
I really love how this little engagement-family photo session turned out. A good looking couple with their good looking son in a good looking city only results in some good look portraits! We chose to take the photos at Lady Bird Lake Park because a few months back I had taken Roslyn’s maternity photos there, so it was a special location. These are some of my favorite shots from this session. Enjoy!

A few weekends ago we traveled up to Austin, Texas for two things; music and photography! We attended ACL for a day and the next day (Sunday) we filled the whole day with photo shoots and this one was one of them!
Ashley is actually a returning client. When she was 15 her parents hired me to photograph her quince and now I am going to be photographing her wedding. She recently moved from the RGV to Austin, Texas for work and school, so we decided to take her photos in her new city and I don’t regret it one bit because they came out beautiful! The couple chose special and fun places they enjoy about the city such as Mount Bonnell, Downtown Austin SOCO area, Nada Moo, and Jo’s Coffee for their photo shoot. Here are my favorite shots of Ashley and Juan in Austin, Texas.

In life you meet that one person that completes you. You always want to be with that person. They are constantly on your mind. I think I just met that couple. Deedee and Manny, you two are so perfect for each other.
I got in touch with this Austin couple through Deedee’s sister. A while back I had volunteered my photography services for a Make-A-Wish Foundation RGV Event for this beautiful young lady Messalinda Anzaldua, who’s wish was a winter themed quinceañera. Deedee’s sister Erica is a coordinator with the Make-A-Wish Foundation Rio Grande Valley and was helping at the quince. Well, after meeting me and seeing my work, she contacted me letting me know that she had a sister who was engaged and looking for a photographer. [Volunteer, it’s good for you!]
Months later, here we are standing on the top of this rock at the Austin 360 bridge photographing the beautiful Deedee and very handsome Manny Garza on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. The couple was so much fun to work with and great to talk to. Sometimes I forgot that they were my clients because we all got so lost in conversation.
It was most definitely a fun Austin engagement session. We met at the Austin 360 Bridge, then traveled to Jo’s Coffee downtown Austin to photograph at the the famous I love you so much wall. Then we finished the session at the Performing Arts in Austin Long Center.

I recommend Ben 110%! Ben is awesome. He was our photographer for our engagement session and wedding (Stephanie Rios assisted and is great, too). Ben is a professional in every way possible. He’s detailed oriented, skilled and takes the time to get to know you. I had several vendors at my wedding and Ben was by far the best, easiest person to work with. Ben can direct you on how to pose, but can also take excellent candid photos. Book him!
