Miguel and Deborah Engagement – Hidalgo Pumphouse – Ben Briones Studios

I had the privilege of photographing this beautiful couple last week. We chose the Old Hidalgo Pumphouse in Hildago, Texas for the special occasion. The Hidalgo Pumphouse is one of the cities’ special features and very popular for a photography spot among other things like bike riding, jogging or nature walks.

I love the colors the couple chose to wear for the shoot because they reflected a lot in the location so the the color pallet stayed cohesive. We utilized a few great spots around the property and these are my favorite shots from this engagement photo session. Enjoy! 2019-02-28_00012019-02-28_00022019-02-28_00052019-02-28_00062019-03-01_00012019-02-28_00092019-03-01_00172019-03-01_0011

 

 

Mayra & Manuel Engagement – Old Hidalgo Pumphouse – Hidalgo, Texas

One of my favorite places to take engagement photos is at the Old Hidalgo Pumphouse located in Hidalgo, Texas. The place has beautiful backdrops every which way you point your camera. The rental fee is super affordable as well. You can wear formal clothing or more relaxed outfits and you will still fit perfectly into all the settings the Pumphouse has to offer. I highly recommend this rgv photo shoot location for anyone looking into taking engagement photos.

Eloise & Manny Engagements – McAllen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

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! 2018-11-19_00312018-11-19_00322018-11-19_00332018-11-19_00302018-11-19_00342018-11-19_00352018-11-19_0036

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.

Nicole & Mike E-Session – Hidalgo, Texas -Ben Briones Studios

The small things are what count sometimes. Today I will be introducing you to one of my brides who has been so loyal and excited about my brand! Nicole and I go way back to high school! We both attended Edinburg North High School in Edinburg, Texas and since then we have kept in touch. Nicole’s green eyes are the first thing you notice on this beautiful young lady. The second thing you find appealing is her positive attitude, which I really enjoy every time I meet up with her. For me those small qualities count because not only does she bring beauty to my brand but also brings happiness and joy to Ben Briones Studios. 

Our photo session took place at the ever-famous Old Hidalgo Pump House. I knew this place would be great for their photos but I was a little hesitant because of the bipolar weather we have been having and the fact it gets super saturated with photographers. Little did we know the weather was perfect and we had the whole venue to ourselves. I took the couple around to different areas of the Old Hidalgo Pump House and photographed them in posed and candid moments. One of my favorite shots was the one where they are tightly holding each other, moments before a kiss. Actually Nicole had requested I shoot some intimate engagement photos but the ones that I did shoot in that manner are for their eyes only but today I give you a glimpse of their session. Enjoy!
