Adalie’s Quince – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Having a Quinceañera is super special for a young woman and the parents. I met Adalie when her father brought her to my studio for her formal portrait session. Her photos turned out so beautiful in her portraits with her blue dress.  It was no surprise that the result of her photos from her Quinceañera would be any different.

Here are our favorite photos from documenting a special evening of symbolic traditions, dancing, and fun moments of Adalie celebrating her 15th birthday with her family and friends.

Guerrero Baptismal – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Today I got hired by the Guerrero family again to photograph their two other kids getting baptized. It’s always a special feeling when families call you back for special milestones in their lives. A few years back I photographed their eldest son getting baptized and today I documented their 14-year old daughter and 11-month old son. Here are my favorite shots from this Sunday event!

Zavala Family Portraits – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones

When planning a family photo session one thing that you need to consider is the location. Living in the Rio Grande Valley we all know it’s extremely hot and sunny so when discussing the photo shoot with my clients I always show them locations that have both indoor and outdoor areas to shoot in. Now, most of the places are going to charge you to use them so you have to prepare for that as well. I have a rule with my clients; if the location is $100 and below I will pay for it, but if it’s more than $100 I asks the client to split the cost with me. I already have a location fee built into my premium portrait packages just in case we do shoot at a place that charges you to use it.

For this particular family photo session we used the very popular Memory Lane Photo Spot located in Mission, Texas. I love this place for family photos because it has both indoor and outdoor variety and the owners are super nice! The place is a one-hundred year old home with lots of character and well decorated. The inside has a beautiful wood finish with a staircase, a piano, and very nice furniture. The outdoors is lush with beautiful landscaping and rustic settings. I have used Memory Lane Photo Spot for all kinds of photos shoots including bridal, engagements, maternity, etc. Here are my favorite outdoor shots of the Zavala Family at Memory Lane Photo Spot in Mission, Texas. ZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-1_WEBZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-5_WEBZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-6_WEBZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-12_WEBZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-17_WEBZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-25_WEBZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-27_WEBZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-16_WEB

Susana Sanchez Grad Session – The University of Texas at Austin – Ben Briones Studios

#FLASHBACKFRIDAY

Beautiful. Bold. Intelligent. Studious. Adventurous. Strong. These are all nouns to describe Ms. Susan Sanchez, a graduate of The University of Texas at Austin. I met Susy while attending UT through a mutual friend. She and I became friends and kept in touch and when it was time to celebrate the achievement of completing not only one but two undergrad degrees she contacted me to document this special moment.

It’s been a a few years since this photo shoot and Susy is now saving lives and keeping the people of Austin, Texas safe. I wish you the best friend. I am very proud of you! \m/

Dominique & Gilbert Wedding – The Loretto Bistro – Mission, Texas

There’s this cute little wedding venue in Mission, Texas named The Loretto Bristo and it’s kind of a big deal. I have had the pleasure of photographing two weddings there and both have produced beautiful wedding photos and it’s all thanks to the ascetics of the location. I was also equipped with one of the best shooters in town, Steph Rios, who also took the couples engagement photos a few months before the wedding.

The Loretto Bristo has an airy vintage type of feel with a mixture of summer-time-fun! It’s well lit from the inside and pretty spacious for a small to mid-size event. The couples I photographed at this venue have both got married out back in their beautiful lush green courtyard.

Dominique and Gilbert couldn’t have chosen a better venue. The couple who is also good looking fit right in at the venue. What I loved most about this wedding was the amount of love in the air and how quaint it was. Desiree, the brides sister, recommended me to her and I am very thankful because Dominique was such a fun and sweet bride. The couple completely trusted my shooting partner and I to capture this love story and that we did. Enjoy.

Dennis and Cynthia Engagement | Memory Lane Photo Spot, Mission Texas

#TBT

Dennis and Cynthia gave us the pleasure of entering their world on January 4th of 2017 to photograph their engagement at Memory Lane Photo Spot. Enter their world is what we did as it became immediately apparent that these two lovers co-exist in a world of joy and laughter. It brought a smile to anyone to would stop and witness.

We photographed this fun couple at the famous Memory Lane Photo Spot in Mission, Texas. I really enjoyed photographing the couple at this location because it has so much variety and we felt it allowed the couple to be themselves and just have fun with the place. You will see a lot of genuine laughs and smiles radiating from the two.
