Nydia Quince Session – Hummingbird Springs – Donna, Texas

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. 08.26.18_HighRes_Nydia Quince Session_BBS-10_WEB08.26.18_HighRes_Nydia Quince Session_BBS-15_WEB08.26.18_HighRes_Nydia Quince Session_BBS-18_WEB08.26.18_HighRes_Nydia Quince Session_BBS-24_WEB08.26.18_HighRes_Nydia Quince Session_BBS-32_WEB08.26.18_HighRes_Nydia Quince Session_BBS-38_WEB08.26.18_HighRes_Nydia Quince Session_BBS-42_WEB08.26.18_HighRes_Nydia Quince Session_BBS-46_WEB08.26.18_HighRes_Nydia Quince Session_BBS-6_WEB

Arantza Quince Portraits – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

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.

Zarah Zamora – Quince Portraits – Casa Polonia

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.

This quince photo shoot was one of my very first sessions as a “professional”. Very excited to be sharing older work so you can see the progress of how I have developed as a photographer.

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!

Dez Quince Portraits – McAllen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

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.

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.

Morgan Mills – Quince Portraits – South Padre Island, Texas

Anyone ever done a 4am photo shoot at South Padre Island? It’s a lot of fun especially if you are professional photographer. The colors are beautiful and capturing an image like that for your client is such a treat! The sky from sunrise and on on a beautiful morning at beach front will always get you great images. Here are some photos I took for my client at South Padre Island.

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.

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!

Melanie Quince Portrait – Alamo, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

#FLASHBACKFRIDAY

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!  2012_01_29_melaniequincenera__bbp_blog12012_01_29_melaniequincenera__bbp_blog22012_01_29_melaniequincenera__bbp_blog32012_01_29_melaniequincenera__bbp_blog42012_01_29_melaniequincenera__bbp_blog52012_01_29_melaniequincenera__bbp_blog6
