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.

Cristina Quince Party – La Lomita Park Venue – Ben Briones Studios

A while back we were hired to photograph this special quince event for Cristina. She had her event at the famous La Lomita Park in McAllen, Texas. The family really made us feel at home and we really enjoyed photographing this event. Here are my favorite shots from this event.

Jazlyn Quince – Mario’s Banquet Hall – Mission, Texas

Photographing Jazyln’s quince was so much fun! There was so much good energy bouncing around in Mario’s Banquet Hall in Mission, Texas. Jazyln looked stunning in her vivid red dress. I had already seen it from the portrait session we had done with her a few weeks back but her guest were in aww!

The venue decorated beautifully and the band kept the dance floor busy. These are some of my favorite shots from this grand quince event at Mario’s Banquet Hall. 05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-2-50_WEB05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-2-66_WEB05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-0025_WEB05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-2-69_WEB05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-2-27_WEB05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-2-53_WEB05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-0035_WEB05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-0085_WEB05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-0091_WEB05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-0093_WEB05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-0240_WEB05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-0241_WEB05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-0351_WEB05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-0359_WEB05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-0383_WEB05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-0417_WEB05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-0653_WEB05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-0674_WEB05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-0692_WEB05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-0693_WEB05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-0776_WEB05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-0782_WEB05.19.18_PRINT_Jazlyn Ortiz Quince_BBS-0786_WEB

Victoria Villarreal Quinceañera – Edinburg, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Never have I experienced such a unique Quniceañera celebration such as Victoria’s! The party started in the party bus. The turned up the music and had a blast on their way to the McAllen Convention where we took group photos of them. The group also stopped by Ben & Jerry’s for some ice-cream and it was well deserved because it was such a hot day!

Then the best was yet to come. The ceremony and reception both took places at one of the most popular event venues in the Rio Grande Valley, the MarBel Event Center in Edinburg of Alberta Street! Victoria’s them was Enchanted Forest and that’s exactly what you got when you walked into the event center. They transformed this venue to look like something out of a Disney story.

Victoria had a beautiful inanimate ceremony inside Marbel Event Center with her parents and closest family members at her side. She was blessed and then the festivities began! Typically a Quince dances with her dad to a very beautiful sweet song but this time around Victoria and Mr. Villareal danced their hearts out to an awesome mix and then invited Mom in when the DJ played the Macarena. [A little insider: Victoria’s mom’s name is Macarena]. Then Victoria put on two beautiful performances with her court for her guest. As the party continued people danced the night away and then the party got lit as soon as the DJ let the balloons lose and the band got down with the guest!

These are some of our favorite shots from this event.

Brianda Quince -MarBel Event Center – Edinburg, Texas

This beautiful pre-thanksgiving Quince took place at the gorgeous MarBel Banquet Hall located in Ediburg, Texas. On November 24th, Thanksgiving Day, I had a flight I had to catch to Washington D.C. When I bought my plane tickets I didn’t think anyone would actually book us a day before Thanksgiving… but you know what? I am glad they did. I enjoyed doing what I love a day before taking a six day vacation.

Matty, Brianda’s mom is a sweetheart. She put all her trust in us to capture these special moments in her daughter and I hope we are going to make her happy with the images we produced. The dominant photographer for this event was our very own Jessica Musick. I was filming the event so Jessica took initiative in documenting the whole event and I am excited to share the beautiful photos captured by Jessica. Enjoy!

Briana Pedraza – Quince – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

I am super excited to finally share these images with you! This event was memorable because it was celebrated among friends; The Pedraza Family. Ray and his family have invited me into their family as a friend and has just made our business partnership that much more special.

Ray Pedraza is the assistant director of the Public Relations & Marketing office at South Texas College. If you ever call STC and hear that voice in the background that’s him.

One day at work Ray had mentioned that he was planning a Quinceañera for his daughter Briana. Well as you can see I was hired and really enjoyed photographing this milestone.

The ceremony  took place at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in McAllen, Texas, which is the Pedraza’s family home church. Then the celebration continued at Balli’s Social Event Center.

Thank you Pedraza family for allowing me to be part of such a special moment for you and your daughter. Enjoy some of my favorite moments from this event.

Client Review

Alondra Alanis Quince – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

A few weeks ago we photographed and watched Alondra Alanis enter womanhood in most glamorous fashion, a Quince. Her loving family gathered at the Corinthians dressed elegantly ready for a bittersweet night. Alondra, daughter of loving mother Jaine, was dressed in a two piece pink gown that was custom made by Rosie Coronado. The beautiful gown transformed into a gorgeous dance outfit as Alondra and her dance team busted a move making the highlight of the night a memorable one. The happy spirit in the air was accompanied by a two live bands and excellent service by the Corinthians. And how can we forget the candy bar that was enjoyed by not only children but adults who gave a quick look around and they scooped up a few pink themed candies. The gifts, the outfits, the atmosphere all remind us that no matter the amount of events we cover, each is as unique and beautiful as the family. We wish you well Alondra, and telling from the love that resonated from your parents, you are in good hands.

Jackie Ortiz Quince – Weslaco, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Ms. Jackie is such a sweet girl and very lively. You can definitely tell she has a bold personally just by the color selection of her dress! Both she and her mom were super open to my creative ideas, especially during her portrait session.

After meeting with her and family a few times I found out she too was a Christian, which was such a blessing to see. Made my heart happy! Her mom would tell me how involved they were at their church and how happy she was her girls were plugged in too.

Back in the day I use to rarely take quinceañera jobs but lately I have taken on quite a few because of how special these celebrations are for the family. Jackie’s quince was definitely a milestone for her and family. As a photographer it takes patience and a keen eye tell this type of story. Teenagers are unpredictable and you have to be super aware of your surroundings ready to photograph any random fun moment the client may have.

I take pride and joy in my storytelling and today I present to you a storyline of Jackie’s 15th Birthday celebration at the Hacienda Paraiso in Weslaco, Texas.

Destiny Love Peña – Quince – Mcallen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

I once went through a phase where I would tell people I only shot weddings but you know what? Screw that! I am a photographer; plain and simple! My job is to serve my community, my clients and my God through this special gift. This quineañera has inspired me to rekindle that love for that In-The-Moment-Photojournalism style that makes my brand Ben Briones Studios stand out! Carol and Destiny, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reminding me and inspiring me that special days like this one is the sole purpose why I love photography.

Let me tell you a little bit about this beautiful family. Carol, the mom, is so animated and loving.  There is never a dull moment with her. Her husband (a.k.a. Chubby) as hard as he looks, he is such a sweet-heart. Carol and Chubby have two younger girls and a boy who are so lovable as well, but Destiny Love Peña is something special in her own way (as I’m sure her other siblings are special at their own rights). Destiny has her mother’s beauty. When she speaks, you can tell this 15-year old is extremely smart. Actually, she’s an all A student and is currently attending South Texas College. Her parents have done such a beautiful job raising this young lady and on December 6, 2014 they celebrated her entry into womanhood.

Destiny’s quince was extremely fun and elegant. From the thumping beats that blasted, her party bus, to the last family portrait, I  can truly say my team and I really enjoyed ourselves. The  family rented one of my all time favorite venue’s, D’Gala in McAllen, Texas. Destiny’s dress was amazing and uniquely made just for her. She glowed all night. Loved ones and friends filled the beautifully decorated venue with laughter, dancing and affection for the quince. Destiny Love Peña, thank you for inspiring me and trusting me to capture such a memorable time in your life. Love you Carol, Destiny and family. Enjoy!

Special thanks to Imanol Miranda and Ramiro Galvan.
