2 Days After Dad’s Heart Attack – Keirsten & Bobby Lopez Wedding – Ben Briones Studios

#TBT

Two days before I filmed this wedding I sat in the waiting room of a hospital with my family at the left of crying and praying for my dad to come out okay from his operation. It was Christmas morning 2014 and my dad had a heart attack and my mom had secretly rushed him to Doctor’s Hospital at Renaissance. In the mist of all the emotions I remained calm. I knew that whatever was going on was out of my control and I was okay with that. Thankfully my Dad came out of his stint operation successfully and lived to tell the story of his Christmas miracle.

Let that story show you that even in the chaos of life I took upon my responsibility and the promise I made to Keirsten and Bobby to document their wedding day. With the help of my best friend Imanol Miranda we took care of business. Thankfully Bobby, the groom, had gone through a similar situation and he shared empathy for my situation.

I almost didn’t do it. I was already looking for substitute photographers but my Dad, with the little strength he had, he told me to go and do it. My Mom too also assured me it would be okay.

Passion is what moves you forward. Passion is what keeps you strong. Passion is what builds reputation. Passion is what builds you up. Dad, you have always allowed me to do what I love and it’s because of you I can serve beautiful couples like Kirsten and Bobby.

Stacie & Jordan Wedding – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

This wedding was my last wedding of 2014 and my first of 2015. Stacie and Jordan married on the brink of the New Years Eve and we were right there to celebrate with them. Rain or shine our job is to document life changing events in your life, and I can promise you it is worth having these types of memories around to pass on for generations.

Stacie is now living in Alaska with her husband, so for you complaining about this January cold weather we are facing here in the Rio Grande Valley, think of my bride! This girl is such a sweet gentle person. Her parents are amazing as well! Everyone that we encountered at this wedding were just beautiful people. It was cold and rainy on this wedding day but that didn’t stop anything from coming together. In my opinion, everything went flawless.

It’s not everyday a bride marries the man of her life on New Years Eve, whom is a honorable serviceman, and then moves to Alaska. Stacie and Jordan, this was truly a movie-like love story and I am grateful to have been a part of it.

Melody & Edgar Wedding – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Saturday evening team and I had the pleasure of capturing some very emotional and precious moments for my clients Melody and Edgar. Just a day ago I could hear the stress in Melody’s voice in a phone call that we had and today I saw nothing but smiles and tears of joy!

Melody and Edgar have been together for about seven-to-eight years. Can you image how it feels to finally be officially together? Couples like these make me want to fall in love and have a wedding of my own.

Melody and Edgar, thank you for reminding me why I chose this career and why I love it so much. Moments like these remind me what God made me for. I love you guys and I wish you the best!

Special thanks to Imanol Miranda, Laura Soria, and Ramiro Galvan for capturing this day for our amazing and loving clients.
