A true #throwbackthursday post right here!
In 2011 I was still attending The University of Texas at Austin finishing up my degree but that didn’t stop me from driving down to the Rio Grande Valley to serve my clients. Amanda and I went to school together at Edinburg North High School and when she asked me to photographer her graduation portraits I did not hesitate; even though I was 500 miles away.
Back then I was shooting the original Canon 5D and using one studio light on location with a octabox. Since then I have simplified my light setup but after seeing these beautiful images I may go back. Another thing I would do back then was try to shoot all my sessions between 1pm – 3pm to have explosive natural light and studio light. It nice to take a look at your older work and see how you have matured as a photographer.
The beautiful thing about this special person is that not only did I have the honor of photographing this milestone in her life, we also shot some head shots for her and most recently I helped document her wedding with Stephanie Rios Photography.

I am super excited to photograph and feature my first University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) Graduate on my blog! Congratulations Ms. Karen Perez on your achievement!
Every time I photograph someone on this university campus it takes me back to my days as a student their. I use to walk around with my camera around my neck photographing nature and people and now I have the privilege to capture momentous milestones in graduates who too have walked the same campus as I.
The University of Texas Pan American, as it was once known, molded me as a photographer and really help me plunge into the world of photojournalism with the opportunity the Pan American Newspaper granted me. And even though it is now UTRGV, I know the leadership, professors and staff still hold quality education as its top priority.
Ms. Karen Perez, once again best wishes and thank you for trusting my brand to capture this milestone in your life.
Special thanks to Sara Yanez.
