Ashley and Juan Wedding – Hacienda San Juan – Ben Briones Studios

Ashley and Juan’s Wedding day began at their parents home. It was a special sight to see the couple getting ready with their family. The couple currently lives in Austin, Texas, where we took their engagement photos, so to be back home on such a momentous day must have been very exciting for everyone. The couple had a beautiful catholic ceremony at Holy Spirt in McAllen, Texas where we also took their wedding day portraits. On the way to their venue in San Juan, Texas we stopped at the Basilica Of Our Lady of San Juan del Valle – National Shrine to take more photos of the couple. Finally we ended the night with a beautiful reception at the gorgeous rebranded wedding venue now known as Hacienda San Juan located in San Juan, Texas. Here are my favorite photos from their wedding day.

Gabie & Manuel Engagement – Casa Polonia – Weslaco, Texas

Excited to share Gabie and Manuel’s engagements that we took at the popular photo shoot venue in Weslaco, Texas, Casa Polonia!  We did a set of outdoor and indoor photos for them.  This couple was so much fun to work with.  They trusted me with some of my crazy angles and ideas and I’m glad they did because I really love how their photos came out.

Although I love all of them, I have a few favorite because of the meaning behind them.  The first one is the one with the blue color gel light; I love that one because it adds a mood to something often shot and I also love it because they trusted me to get out of my comfort zone to be creative.  The second photo I’m super proud of is the McDonald’s ice cream cone engagement shot because they said their first date many years ago was at that same park with two delicious ice cream cones.

Eliose & Manny Wedding – Rancho Quinta Luz – McAllen, Texas

Found this gem of a wedding in a hard drive I was going through and I wanted to share it with y’all. I photographed this wedding back in 2012 for this lovely couple. I still remember driving up to the church and getting off and feeling the sun hit me. I remember how nervous the groom was. I remember the beautiful shots we took for them and how excited I was to show them off the back of my little screen on my DSLR.

This couple had their  wedding ceremony at their home church with close friends, family, and loved ones. It was a beautiful and emotional ceremony.  Soon after the couple  celebrated as newly weds at the the  beautiful mcallen wedding venue known as Rancho Quinta Luz located off 495 in McAllen, Texas. There we celebrated with them capturing all their fun and special moments. Here are my favorite shots from this wedding.
