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.

Joanna & Carlos – Quinta Mazlatan – Ben Briones Studios

Imagine meeting that person that makes your laugh, cry and get extremely angry! Imaging loving that person to death but trying really hard not to kill them when they get your mad. I had the pleasure of photographing this couple who might feel all those things listed above. Joanna and Carlos are truly super in love and I am super excited to share their love story!

I photographed this lovely couple’s engagement photos at the famous Quinta Mazlatan in South McAllen. We had such a great time and a little adventure. Any and all photo shoots I have conducted at this venue was always shot inside the home and in the front yard but this time around we decided to explore the trails and we got lost. While lost though, we were able to grab some unique portraits of never before seen locations at Quinta Mazlatan. Here are some of my favorite shots from this engagement session. 04.23.18_PRINT_Joanna and Carlos_BBS-0031_WEB04.23.18_PRINT_Joanna and Carlos_BBS-0073_WEB04.23.18_PRINT_Joanna and Carlos_BBS-0105_WEB04.23.18_PRINT_Joanna and Carlos_BBS-9864_WEB04.23.18_PRINT_Joanna and Carlos_BBS-9902_WEB04.23.18_PRINT_Joanna and Carlos_BBS-9915_WEB04.23.18_PRINT_Joanna and Carlos_BBS-9959_WEB04.23.18_PRINT_Joanna and Carlos_BBS-0014_WEB04.23.18_PRINT_Joanna and Carlos_BBS-0235_WEB04.23.18_PRINT_Joanna and Carlos_BBS-0259_WEB

Cristella & Louis Wedding – Valencia Event Center – Pharr, Texas

Cristella and Louis are the sweetest couple you will ever meet! It gives us great joy to have documented such a beautiful wedding. The venue couldn’t have been anymore perfect. The ceremony took place right when the sun was going down giving the couple such beautiful golden light.

Cristella and Louis live in Austin, Texas so most of my communication with them through phone or email, so I never really had the chance to host them at my office and get to know them. It wasn’t until I scheduled an engagement photo shoot in Austin with them that I really got to see their personality and dynamic as a couple. Their fun and inviting personality carried over to their wedding day, which made for great fun photos.

Here are some of our favorite shots from Cristella and Louis Wedding. Enjoy!

One of my favorite venues to photograph at is the D’ Gala Banquet & Special Events located 2100 W.

My favorite angle to shoot in this venue is shooting upward toward their beautiful chandelier display.
