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.

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!

I highly recommend this rgv photo shoot location for anyone looking into taking engagement photos. Check out my favorite photos from this photo session!

Lately, I have been seeing a lot of Jessica’s name and her work from local photographers and models. Jessica Styles is a professional makeup artists and powerhouse in local women’s business circles. I saw her brand rising and contacted her to see if she would be willing to build her brand with photography of her self. Usually clients want to know who they are working with and having photos of yourself on your marketing products is important. Jessica and I scheduled a photo shoot at The Old Hidalgo Pump House and these are some of my favorite photos from the session.

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.

I’m sad to start this story by saying they were missing one. The Hatch Family is actually a team of five but one of their son’s was not feeling to well and didn’t participate in this shoot. I promised them I would retake their session if they were ever back in the valley. They had been visiting family during the Christmas holidays and took advantage of the time to take family photos. Very grateful they chose us! Thank you!
We photographed them at the Hidalgo Pump House. Surprisingly their outfits matched the aesthetics of the location which was a major plus for all of us! The kids were little angles as well, always ready to pose. Mom and dad too were fun and always willing to take my instruction rather it be a standard shot or something creative!
I’m sad their other son didn’t join in but as someone who once was a teenage boy I can sympathize with him. As I mentioned I wouldn’t mind redoing it free of charge. Every family deserves a quality family portrait and I will champion that for the Hatch’s.

Memories are beautiful and that is why I love being a photographer. The opportunity God has given me to freeze a special moment in time that will forever be passed down in generations is just beyond me.
At the end of May I had the pleasure of photographing Roonie and her growing family. We went out to the Hidalgo Pump House in Hidalgo, Texas. Roonie wanted a country-green-rustic setting and that beautiful location lent itself well to what she was looking for.
As hot and humid as it was we had a great time and captured some precious moments of her girls and her deputy. Her little girl is so animated and just made the photoshoot much more fun. I know these images will forever be special for mama bear. Thank you Ronnie Sada for allowing me to photograph you and your family.

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!

Although I do not niche in family portraits I still love to photograph families because it matters. It matters to them and it matters to me. Today I am featuring my latest family portrait session of the Leos family.
I met Mr. Andy Leos at a Holy Ghost revival at a church he pastors about a year ago. Pastor Leos is a family man, an active outdoorsmen, and most importantly a man of God. When he asked me capture some beautiful summer moments with his wife and daughters, I said yes.
Because of my highly active lifestyle I do not spend enough time with my family but when we get together it’s such a blessing. So when I’m asked to photograph a family I take the job seriously. I knew these images really mattered to Mr. Leos when he requested a special photo to be done of him fishing with his two beautiful daughters.
Family photo sessions evoke such an intimate setting. I really loved the way Virgina, the mother, kept the family in check. Their daughters were somewhat shy but you could tell the bond between the two just by looking at how tight they held each other’s hands. You know and most of the time it is the father who is not into the session but I was surprised as to how much Mr. Leos enjoyed the photo session. That only tells me one thing, family matters to him.
