Excited to share these beautiful engagement photos taken a few weeks back at Estero Llano Grande State Park in Weslaco, Texas. My couple and I had originally planned to go to San Antonio, Texas to take their photos there but due to this COVID-19 scare we decided to take the photos in our own backyard.
The couple wanted something with a lot of greenery and well Estero Llano was one of the options I presented to them and I am glad they chose it. This state park is so beautiful and has so much to work with. I was able to take the couple along different walking areas each giving us a distinct look all from the same location. The place is also super mega affordable. Cost is only $5 per person. I am really happy how these outdoor engagement photos came out. I also shot in 35mm film and can’t wait to develop and post those here. Please enjoy our favorite shots from this engagement photo shoot.

Check out this beautiful surprise engagement shot at Estero Llano Grande in Weslaco, Texas. Kody and I had met a few weeks before to chat and plan how this was going to unfold. If you are planning a surprise engagement I would advise planning something out with your photographer so you can get great photos and video captured. Kody and I came up with simple plan. He was going to book me for “couples photos” for their anniversary and during the shoot we would go back to the car to get some bug spray but we were really getting the ring he had hidden. We placed the ring in my lens belt and went back to the location and continued this “couples photos” to celebrate their anniversary. Little did Jasmine know she was going to be proposed to.
Here are our favorite shots from this surprise engagement!

Returning clients are always the best! Super mega thank yous to Ignacio and Britny for not only choosing Ben Briones Studios for headshots but also having me as their wedding photographer and now I hope to make the transition into their family photographer.
I love the mood of these images. The tones seem so calm and loving, which is probably how baby Olive felt in mommy. We shot these photos at Estero Llano Grande State Park located in Weslaco, Texas.
Working with Igancio and Britny is a blessing. They fully trust my team and I and allow us to be creative and give direction. Here are my favorite photos from this maternity portrait session.

A month ago we had the pleasure of photographing these love birds, Stephany and Harry. They wanted a green scenery and a walk bridge for their engagement session and we had an awesome area here in Weslaco, Texas just for that.
We made our way to Estero Llano Grade State Park, once entering it was already a great area to photograph. Which was a great benefit to us and the couple, since we didn’t have to walk much into the park to enjoy the park. It’s rare that we do an 8 a.m. photo shoot but we took on this challenge because we knew the weather would be a little better early morning.
Beside the weather being hot these two troopers made it through their session and we got to enjoy breakfast with them afterward! We are now excited to finally share these images with you guys!

Last Sunday I shot some early morning beautiful family photos of the Barnes Family but the star of the photo shoot was Miss Glory Iris Barnes. Later that Sunday morning she was going to get baptized and the family wanted to celebrate with pictures before the ceremony.
We did this photo shoot at Estero Llano Grande State Park, a gorgeous state park, located in Weslaco, Texas. The Barnes wanted their baby girl photographed with scenic backdrop and this park in my opinion was the perfect place for the portrait session. A few months back Michael and Crischelle actually got married at Estero Llano Grande State Park.
We beat the sun and heat, which made the photo shoot great! Excited to share these beautiful photos with you! Enjoy!
