Jenika Sanchez Quince – Rancho Viejo – Ben Briones Studios

Check out this Quince we photographed in Rancho Viejo, Texas.  The client was a returning client. I had done headshots for her and her brother once because they are very involved in pageants. This was a pretty unique and fun quince. Her dress was pretty and different from the typical puffy quince dress. I loved the color too! She had like three outfit changes which was pretty cool too and then the way she entered her reception was pretty awesome! Check out our favorite shots from this quinceanera event.  Jenika Sanchez_PRINT_AM_BBP-7_WEBJenika Sanchez_PRINT_AM_BBP-11_WEBJenika Sanchez_PRINT_AM_BBP-23_WEBJenika Sanchez_PRINT_AM_BBP-86_WEBJenika Sanchez_PRINT_AM_BBP-116_WEBJenika Sanchez_PRINT_AM_BBP-128_WEBJenika Sanchez_PRINT_AM_BBP-131_WEBJenika Sanchez_PRINT_AM_BBP-154_WEBJenika Sanchez_PRINT_AM_BBP-172_WEBJenika Sanchez_PRINT_AM_BBP-182_WEBJenika Sanchez_PRINT_AM_BBP-186_WEBJenika Sanchez_PRINT_AM_BBP-204_WEBJenika Sanchez_PRINT_AM_BBP-255_WEBJenika Sanchez_PRINT_AM_BBP-262_WEBJenika Sanchez_PRINT_AM_BBP-277_WEBJenika Sanchez_PRINT_AM_BBP-302_WEBJenika Sanchez_PRINT_AM_BBP-314_WEBJenika Sanchez_PRINT_AM_BBP-323_WEBJenika Sanchez_PRINT_AM_BBP-376_WEB

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

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/

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.

Stephanie Eilzalde – McAllen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

This photo session was fun. The client chose a location that many often forget its beauty, the Art Village in the heart of the McAllen Arts District. Honestly, we took advantage of that location plus the surround areas that really lends itself to photography.

The photos we in celebration of Stephanie’s 15th birthday! At the start my client was s little shy but we eventually broke the ice and just starting having fun. My assistant Luli is amazing with the clients and always makes them feel comfortable. That’s one important key to a successful photo shoot, trust from your cliet.

Victoria Villarreal – Quinta Mazatlan – McAllen, Texas

This was one of the most fun quince portrait photo shoots we did this summer! Victoria was lovely her family was lovely and all that reflects in these photographs. My team and I were amazed by the detail of Victoria’s gown. Her makeup was flawless as well and she just did super well during the photo shoot.

We cooperatively chose the Quinta Mazatlan World Birding Center in McAllen, Texas because it offers beautiful indoor and outdoor settings that really lends itself photography. For this specific shoot we started indoors but quickly made our way outside because it was, in my opinion, the best place these photographs because nature and beauty always mix well. Here are our favorite shots from this session.

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!

Rachelle Galindo – Alice in Wonderland Quince – Ben Briones Studios

#FLASHBACKFRIDAY

This has to be one of the most creative and fun quince photo shoots I’ve done in my career. When my colleague Galindo came to me for photography services for his daughter’s quince he warned me it would be different. I shrugged it off but little did I know what I was getting myself into.

This young woman had a vision and we executed that vision. Her theme was Alice In Wonderland. She was literally having an Alice in Wonderland themed Quinceaña. She had a custom order dress, we also had amazing probs, a live bunny and a sweet location that fit the theme perfectly.

My team and I were able to create some surreal scenes and shots for Rachelle. This session really challenged our creativity and lighting skills but the hardest part was keeping track of the bunny because it was hopping all over the place.

Enjoy this creative quinceañera photo session. Photo Credit: Adriana Euresti, Ben Briones

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 Alaniz – Mcallen, Texas – Ben Briones Studio

Every girl will go through this stage in her life where she transitions from a young woman to an adult. I believe God has given this young lady a spotlight in this world. If my photographs could tell her story, this is what they would say: “Her dress is uniquely tailored for her, her headpiece gently wrapped around her as if it were a crown because she is royalty in God’s eyes. She walked in grace on the tips of her dance shoes needing not fancy sparkly heals, she stood tall on her own.”

As a photographic storyteller I present chapter 15 of Alondra Alaniz’s life.
