Alicia Quince Portraits – International Museum of Art & Science – Ben Briones Studios

There was once upon a time were I shot a quince photo shoot at the International Museum of Art & Science in McAllen, Texas. I am not too sure if they allow photo session to happen at the Museum anymore but at least I got to say I did it. The photo shoot was short and simple. Her Mom didn’t want anything too fancy but did want some unique shots so I think the Museum was the best place to take the photos. Here are some of my favorite shots. Alicia Quince_HighRes_BenBrionesStudios-32_WEBAlicia Quince_HighRes_BenBrionesStudios-27_WEBAlicia Quince_HighRes_BenBrionesStudios-20_WEBAlicia Quince_Edits_BBP-10_WEBAlicia Quince_Edits_BBP-4_WEB

Stacie Longoria – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Bridal portrait sessions are some of my favorite photo shoots to conduct but it’s always so hard to show them off because we have to keep them secret so the groom won’t see them. Here are some I took back in 2014 for Mrs. Stacie at Memory Lane Photo Spot. This venue makes for beautiful bridal portraits because of style of the home and how they family has it decorated. Stacie was also amazing to work with because she trusted my creative eye and was a gorgeous bride. Here are my favorite shots from this bridal session.

Destiny Love Quince – McAllen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Typically you tend to see Quince portraits photographed outdoor but for this winter wonderland style quince we chose to take the photos inside to make them look more elegant and so they can be closer to the winter theme. I really love how these shots came out because The Gala Special Events is always decorated beautifully. Here are my favorite shots from this quince photo session. You can also view more photos from her actual event here: https://benbriones.com/2014/12/09/destiny-love-pena-quince-ben-briones-studios/

Client Review

Picking ben was by far the best decision my husband and I made. His work ethic is impeccable. Our wedding day was so easy with him and his assistant Lourdes shooting it. They were so helpful throughout the day getting every detailed shot they could. He even helped us plan how our day would go! He was an amazing help and I can’t wait to see how amazing our photos came out!!

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

Ember & Adrian + 1 – Hummingbird Estates – Donna, Texas

In 2011 – 2012 or so I photographed this couples engagement photos and wedding. Just shy of mother’s day I photographed their maternity photos as well. I really enjoy seeing the couples I work with grow together and start a family. This is one of the main reasons why I have chosen to a professional photographer.

When Ember reached out to me to take these photos she seemed set on my services so we moved on quickly to try to get a location and we chose Donna, Texas’ very own wedding venue; Hummingbird Estates A.K.A. Hummingbird Springs. I have shot there a few times and always loved how the photos come out but this time around it was very special and man did the photos come out lovely!

Vanessa & Michael Engagement Session – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

What I love about this couple is that Michael is so involved in the wedding planning. Michael was the first one to call me and set up a consultation. His involvement in this wedding planning has floored me. I hope to be involved as much as he is in helping my future wife for such a special day in their lives.

This special photo session took place at the famous Memory Lane Photo Spot located in Mission, Texas. Vanessa and Michael did such an amazing job in their wardrobe coordination and with their natural posing. I kept asking them if they had practiced prior to the session!

Vanessa and Michael have been together for seven years now and I am super excited to shoot their wedding, a new chapter in their lives!
