Sara Yanez B-Day Session – Wallflower RGV – McAllen, Texas

On January 15, 2019, one day before her birthday, I surprised my beautiful girlfriend with a photo shoot at the Wallflower RGV located off Trenton in McAllen, Texas. I had been following the Wallflower RGV for a long time now on Instagram and would chat with the owner here and there. I am super happy I was able to rent this place for Sara’s photo shoot because the photos came out absolutely beautiful.

We rented the spot for one hour and I took plenty of shots but the ones you see here are my favorite shots. The Wallflower RGV has a lot to work with, they have over 10 looks or backdrops you can create great photos with. I highly encourage you to check this place out before it’s gone, as I believe it’s a pop-up studio and won’t be around forever. 01.15.19_high res_sara yanez bday shoot_bbs-9626_web01.15.19_high res_sara yanez bday shoot_bbs-9664_web01.15.19_high res_sara yanez bday shoot_bbs-9763_web01.15.19_high res_sara yanez bday shoot_bbs-9792_web01.15.19_high res_sara yanez bday shoot_bbs-9832_web01.15.19_high res_sara yanez bday shoot_bbs-9897_web01.15.19_high res_sara yanez bday shoot_bbs-9938_web01.15.19_high res_sara yanez bday shoot_bbs-9950_web

Shawn & Mandy Wedding – South Padre Island, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

#FLASHBACKFRIDAY

The Kelley’s have been a longtime client of my studio. Truly since this I photographed their beautiful wedding. Today I wanted to share their South Padre Island wedding story with you. It has been since more than 4 years since the wedding but the photos are still so vibrant and relevant.

The wedding ceremony took place at the historic Chapel by the Sea located at 33425 State Park Rd 100, South Padre Island, TX. You could not ask for a more beautiful church for a wedding ceremony. Then the reception followed at the luxury hotel Blue Sapphire also found on the strip of South Padre Island, Texas.

This wedding will go down in my books as one of my all time favorite weddings of my career and this is why. The couple was just amazing to work with. Both Shawn and Mandy both believed in me, trusted my team, and gave us complete creative freedom. Secondly, Shawn and Mandy are one good looking couple and their baby girl is just gorgeous. A year or so ago I got to take their family photos at their dad’s ranch in San Antonio, Texas and they are just such a beautiful family. Lastly, the couple treated us like guest. They paid for our hotel at the beach resort, they treated us like guest throughout the wedding day and continued to treat me and my team like longterm friends years after their wedding day.

I don’t have many more words for this wedding because the photos themselves speak volumes and not because I and my team took them but because it was just such a special day!

Mercelita Family – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Today I had the pleasure of photographing this gorgeous family! God always send me the best looking families to work with. I loved their dynamic!

Funny story. Morielle Junise had been trying to get me to photograph her for over a year or two now and finally we had the chance to work together. Hence why I threw in that lovely head shot of her. She just looks so stunning!

I am very great Moriella you contracted me to photograph your family. You and your sister are so awesome and your parents are just too funny! I wish many blessings upon you guys and may God bless you abundantly!

Special thanks to Sara Yanez. 12.18.15_BLOG_Mercelita_BBS-112.18.15_BLOG_Mercelita_BBS-212.18.15_BLOG_Mercelita_BBS-312.18.15_BLOG_Mercelita_BBS-412.18.15_BLOG_Mercelita_BBS-512.18.15_BLOG_Mercelita_BBS-612.18.15_BLOG_Mercelita_BBS-7
