Dandy Heat – Yerberia Cultura – McAllen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios


In the summer I took some photos of my friends band performing at Yerberia Cultura in McAllen, Texas. Osmar and Joseph, the guitarist and bassist, are coworkers of mine at South Texas College. They didn’t hire me to photograph this show but I thought it would be nice to get them some great live shots for their brand. I had photographed an album cover for them a while back and thought photographing their show would add some more value to them because they are a very talented band. Here are my favorite shots from this show.

Fashion Re-purposed: For Thrifts-sake – McAllen, Tx – Ben Briones Studios

Fashion Repurposed for Thrifts sake, a Creative Call to Action event, was hosted by Victoria Lopez and Mark Hanna in support of Mujeres Unidas at the McAllen Creative museum. Victoria Lopez is an Author/Poet & Founder of CC2A and Mark Hanna, Business Consultant/Motivational Speaker. Creative Call to Action is a RGV based organization that helps young talented artists get a leg up in the community. Last night CC2A gave 5 young minds a runway to show off their styling skills. Each contestant had only 30 minutes to sift through a pile of thrift clothes and come up with fashionable outfits for 6 randomly picked models. The looks they came up with truly blew the crowd away.

Seems Fuentes -Food blogger [The RGV Foodster], Sarah Davila – Fashion Blogger [956 Blog], Mireya Mendoza, Melissa Vega, and Straylooks deserve a standing ovation for their stylistic talents. The audience ranked Seen’s line to be the line in the night, they all won a series of prizes. The night didn’t end there.

Featured artists artists of the month were Diana Olivares and Josue Ramirez. Josue had built and installation in the creative center called “Piñata Abstract” and designed a series of outfits out of art supplies. Be sure to keep an eye out for these rising stars.

Angels of Love “Real Women of RGV” Fashion Show – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

A couple of weeks ago we had the opportunity to be an official sponsor of Angels of Love “Real Women of RGV” Fashion Show at La Mansion Event Center in Mission, Texas. Being my first fashion show in the RGV, I was astounded by the glamorous women in their beautiful outfits and the talented performances that took place.

We were invited by Irma Garcia, the coordinator of the lovely event, who is also a good close friend of Ben Briones. Irma and her now husband actually hired Ben Briones Studios to photograph their wedding back in 2012. Angels of Love is a charitable foundation centered on helping abused and neglected children. This, being the first of an annual event, was in efforts to raise funds to build the valley’s very own shelter for displaced women and children.

The elegant and entertaining night included dance numbers, the nationally acclaimed Abraham Lezama, a fashion runway full of models and real women of the RGV. The night  was made possible by sponsors and vendors who provided services and items for auction;  CATO Fashions, Step It Up & Dance, Wells of Weslaco, Spa La Posada, Torrid, Backdoor Vintage, Lionel’s Western Wear, Barbara Boutique, paid trips to basketball games, and other items. Most importantly was the effort by all these vendors and sponsors to come together and execute such a wonderful event were the proceeds were going to such a beautiful cause. We present to you a few snippets of the event. You can find more images here at this link:  Angels of Love “Real Women of RGV” Fashion Show at La Mansion Event Center in Mission, Texas.
