Last weekend we hangout and photographed this sweet couple. They are planning a beautiful wedding in Mexico and needed some engagement photos for the big announcement. I will say that the couple is already legally married but they are still planning, what will be amazing wedding, and only because I am a groomsmen. I am super excited for that!
I’ve known Luis for many years now, maybe like 7 plus years or even more but we have a good friendship and I consider him one of my best friends. He actually helped shape the Ben Briones Studio brand! He and his team created my logo and overall look of my business.
Luis and Maripili are a perfect match. Both of them are extremely creative, compassionate, stylish, and extremely fun! When we were planning their engagement session we decided on something cute and outdoors. The couple has an awesome marketing company that they are successfully running. The first place that came to mind was Memory Lane Photo Spot in Mission, Texas. The spot was perfect because the couple because they wanted to include their new dog. Enough words let’s jump over to these awesome photos of Luis and Maripili and their cute dog!
This wedding was something special for me to witness because I saw Karen grow up. Karen is my best friends sister and because I consider my best friend family, she too is family. What I love is she hasn’t changed much too. Her humor is still awesome and she’s more beautiful than ever.
The bride and groom were already married but wanted to have a grand celebration with family and friends. They got ready at Karen’s mother’s home, where her parents helped them both prepare for the big day. We then took the couple to the beautiful Bryan House in Mission, Texas to take portraits of the couple before their ceremony and reception.
Their ceremony and reception took place at this beautiful elegant venue named Reyna’s Crown in Mission, Texas. I love how simple and intimate their ceremony because what really matters is the person next to you and her and Sergio were totally in the love zone. Right after followed a grand celebration. If you know the Cavazos family they know how to have fun and this wedding was extremely fun! Here are some sneak peeks from this wedding.

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!
