Jacklyn & Michael Engagement – Hidalgo Pump House – Ben Briones Studios

One of our favorite locations to photograph couples at is the Old Hidalgo Pump House located in Hidalgo, Texas. It has so much to use and I think it’s a romantic location that really lends itself for engagement photos.

Here are some of our favorite shots from Jacklyn and Michael’s engagement photos. I really love their outfit and the energy they brought to the shoot. My friend and photography student, Jennifer Trevino, assisted me for this shoot and shot some beautiful photos as well. Here are our favorites.

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

Amy & Rakesh – Engagement – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

In this blog post you will find three things I love the most in the whole wide world. That is; photography, love, and coffee. I photographed this good looking loving couple a few months back and I have am super in love with these images. Amy and Rakesh are young professionals with such a unique love story.

According to Rakesh he met Amy at a coffee shop in Atlanta, Georgia. He made the move to go up and talk to her and know they are to be in a union forever. These young professionals have such a beautiful relationship that is a blurred line between two best friends and lovers.

I love this photo shoot so much because it’s so stylistic without anyone styling anything. It just fell right into place with all color pallets, composition and locations. Memory Lane Photo Spot is always such a beautiful place to shoot at. Secondly, LOVE was truly in the air because this couple just radiated it and then I photographed this session together with my Sara, who is a wonderful assistant. Lastly, Sara and I found a couple who loves coffee as much as we do and we had the pleasure of photographing them at Moonbeans Coffee in Pharr, Texas.

I present to you one of my favorite engagement sessions I have photographed in 2016. 04.02.16_HighRes_AmyRakesh_BenBrioneStudios-7364_FB04.02.16_HighRes_AmyRakesh_BenBrioneStudios-7414_FB04.02.16_HighRes_AmyRakesh_BenBrioneStudios-7520_FB04.02.16_HighRes_AmyRakesh_BenBrioneStudios-7528_FB04.02.16_HighRes_AmyRakesh_BenBrioneStudios-7712_FB04.02.16_HighRes_AmyRakesh_BenBrioneStudios-7835_FB04.02.16_HighRes_AmyRakesh_BenBrioneStudios-7865_FB04.02.16_HighRes_AmyRakesh_BenBrioneStudios-7938_FB04.02.16_HighRes_AmyRakesh_BenBrioneStudios-7978_FB

Isabel & Guilherme Engagement – McAllen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

With all odds stacked up against us we still made this late evening photo session magical! Isabel & Guilherme have that, “love at first sight” relationship. From what they told me is that they met Guilherme is a MMA fighter from Brazil who found love in the small town of Edinburg, Texas with the beautiful bride to be Isabel Barroso. God definitely has his hand in this beautiful relationship!

We basically winged this photo shoot. Using some of my house and the awesome spots the McAllen Arts District has to offer. I mixed LED lighting with studio lights focused with a snoot so I wouldn’t have too much light spilling. I knew this photo shoot was going to challenge my skills. I don’t do many night sessions but I love the results!

Congratulations to you both. May God bless your marriage! IsabelGuilherme_BLOG_BBS-1834IsabelGuilherme_BLOG_BBS-1853IsabelGuilherme_BLOG_BBS-1985IsabelGuilherme_BLOG_BBS-1959IsabelGuilherme_BLOG_BBS-2031IsabelGuilherme_BLOG_BBS-2204IsabelGuilherme_BLOG_BBS-2335IsabelGuilherme_BLOG_BBS-2445

Melody & Edgar Engagement – San Juan, Ben Briones Studios Texas –

Melody is the sweetest person you could ever meet. There is something about her voice when she speaks to you. It’s almost as if she speaks in song; very gentle and pleasant to the ear. Her visits to my office are always super fun. We would talk about everything from church to relationships and music. Melody is such a special person and Mr. Edgar is a very lucky man to have put a ring on this beauty.

This engagement session was so pushed around that we never knew when it was going to be set. One day we finally we chose a date and got them done. Let me tell you..this couple is a very good looking couple. Edgar was sharply dressed; he was so “GQ”. Melody, I believe can model any look and that day she pulled off her two outfits flawless. These two fashionistas are truly meant to be!

The session took place at the Villa De Palmas Venue in Alamo, Texas. It was my first time photographing at this beautiful hacienda. I knew it existed but I never got a chance to book a session there but I finally did. They gave us an hour but ended up taking about two hours or more. The place was so huge and has so much to work with. We are extremely grateful to the owner for allowing to photographing at her beautiful home. The images are the result of this special engagement session for Melody and Edgar.
