Jackie Bush – Robert Vela High School Grad – Ben Briones Studios

You wouldn’t be able to from these photos that just about an hour before there was a crazy storm with flash flood warnings. We had even made the call to Jackie’s mom that we were going to have to reschedule the shoot but I am glad we didn’t! Really love how this photo shoot turned out. Sara took lead while I finished another shoot with our other grad client Caro that kind of overlapped with this shoot but the good thing was I was also shooting at the McAllen Convention Center too. Below you will see some of our favorite shots from this grad portrait session.

Caro Sanchez – ENHS Grad – Ben Briones Studios

Being a Edinburg North High School graduate myself, it gave me great joy to photograph Ms. Caro’s graduation portraits. We decided to shoot these photos at at the McAllen Convention Center because of how much space it allows us to work with. Caro posed both in her cap and gown along with a beautiful dress but also took her look more causal with her cowgirl boots. Sara and I used a lot of natural light in this shoot and I really love how these photos came out and I hope you do too.

Jackie Jones Bridals – International Museum of Art & Science – McAllen, Texas

There are two great reasons to add bridal portrait session to your wedding package!

Reason One
It’s practice run for your hair and makeup. You get to see how your bridal hairdo will look with your dress and if you don’t like the original plan you can always change it up before the wedding day. Same idea applies to your makeup. You get to see how you beautiful you will look on your wedding day and make adjustments if needed.

Reason Two
Tradition is important in the wedding culture and having your bridal photos taken independently from your wedding day builds tradition for you and your family. I’ve been to a few homes where you find a bridal photo of their grandparents still hanging on the wall. As a photographer I love that idea that you will forever stop time in a bridal portrait.

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
