Stephanie Eilzalde – McAllen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

This photo session was fun. The client chose a location that many often forget its beauty, the Art Village in the heart of the McAllen Arts District. Honestly, we took advantage of that location plus the surround areas that really lends itself to photography.

The photos we in celebration of Stephanie’s 15th birthday! At the start my client was s little shy but we eventually broke the ice and just starting having fun. My assistant Luli is amazing with the clients and always makes them feel comfortable. That’s one important key to a successful photo shoot, trust from your cliet.

Rachelle Galindo – Alice in Wonderland Quince – Ben Briones Studios

#FLASHBACKFRIDAY

This has to be one of the most creative and fun quince photo shoots I’ve done in my career. When my colleague Galindo came to me for photography services for his daughter’s quince he warned me it would be different. I shrugged it off but little did I know what I was getting myself into.

This young woman had a vision and we executed that vision. Her theme was Alice In Wonderland. She was literally having an Alice in Wonderland themed Quinceaña. She had a custom order dress, we also had amazing probs, a live bunny and a sweet location that fit the theme perfectly.

My team and I were able to create some surreal scenes and shots for Rachelle. This session really challenged our creativity and lighting skills but the hardest part was keeping track of the bunny because it was hopping all over the place.

Enjoy this creative quinceañera photo session. Photo Credit: Adriana Euresti, Ben Briones

Alondra Alaniz – Mcallen, Texas – Ben Briones Studio

Every girl will go through this stage in her life where she transitions from a young woman to an adult. I believe God has given this young lady a spotlight in this world. If my photographs could tell her story, this is what they would say: “Her dress is uniquely tailored for her, her headpiece gently wrapped around her as if it were a crown because she is royalty in God’s eyes. She walked in grace on the tips of her dance shoes needing not fancy sparkly heals, she stood tall on her own.”

As a photographic storyteller I present chapter 15 of Alondra Alaniz’s life.

Messalinda Anzaldua – Make-A-Wish Rio Grande Valley – La Feria, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Giving back is extremely important for me and my brand. This past weekend I photographed a quinceanera for a special girl. Make-A-Wish Rio Grande Valley put together a fifteenth-birthday-celebration for Messalinda Anzaldua. Mind you, I did not know this young lady and when Ava Sandlin, the executive director of Make-A-Wish Rio Grande Valley, reached out to me a about this event, I automatically said YES.

I am extremely blessed to be able to donate my services to such a awesome foundation. This is what I live for! Special events like these are the sole reason God has given me this ability to share with his people. I have been called to collect memories, capture life and provide a recollection a moment in time that can always be repeated through photography. Messalinda Anzaldua,  I don’t know you but from the photographs we took that night I saw how beautiful your life is and how many people love you.

Special thanks to Felicia Sepulveda of Shutterbelle Photography volunteering her time and helping.
