One of the most beautiful locations to take portraits at is Hummingbird Springs located in Donna, Texas. We took Nydia’s quince portraits here because she was looking for greenery with a twist of country. We also made another stop at a very special place to her and the family, at her grandfather’s gravesite. He left her behind the patches seen on her jean jacket. Enjoy some of our favorite shots from this quince portrait session.

Another great photo session shot on our Fujifilm XT3 and XH1 for this young ladies quince. Shooting with a new camera is always challenging but with the experience I have it’s been fun learning a whole new system and it makes you feel great seeing results like these.
We shot these portraits at a private residents in Sharyland, Texas. The quince was great to work with, she was very open to our ideas and use of the home. We used a mix of ambient light and studio light. What I love about the my Fujifilm XH1 is I get to use my old school Canon FD and Nikon G lenses on the body with an adapter. Check out some of our favorite shots from this session.

Super excited to share our very first quince portrait session of 2020. We shot these photos are one of our favorite locations; Casa Polonia, located in Weslaco, Texas. When Zarah’s mom described her dress to me I knew that Casa Polina would be the perfect location to photographer her. Marlene (mom) is a returning client. We photographed her engagement photos and wedding day and I am very grateful that she thought about us again to capture this milestone for her family. These are my favorite photos from this Quince Portrait Session at Casa Polonia in Weslaco, Texas.

Downtown McAllen has always been one of my favorite places to photograph my clients. It’s filled with beautiful textures and colors as well as lush greenery. I usually like to start off at Archer Park and work our way down N. Main Street finding beautiful backdrops. Here are some great photos I took of this quince.

Here are some photos I took for my client at South Padre Island.

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.

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/

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.

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

We photographed Ms. Melanie at the Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge in Alamo, Texas back in 2012. I really love this Quinceañera portrait session because of how vibrant and unique her dress was.
The color of the dress really popped with with the earthly tones of the Refuge. Five years ago we had a vision for this session and we made it happen and today I still look at these photos and smile because of how they turned out. Enjoy!
