Emily & PJ Engagement – Hidalgo Pumphouse – Ben Briones Studios

The Old Hidalgo Pumphouse in Hidalgo, Texas is one of my favorite spots to shoot at because it’s so diverse in landscape and it’s very affordable as well. Those very reason’s is why we chose to take Emily & Pj’s Engagement photos there. This couple got in contact with me through a good friend, Ms. Georgette Rojas, who’s been friend with them for a very very long time through their parents. Georgette and her Dad have actually done a few photo shoots with me.

We took the couple around the whole venue taking beautiful shots of them around the building and the greenery. I really loved the outfit they had on because it was “fancy” yet casual enough to blend in with the rustic-ness of the Old Hidalgo Pumphouse. Here are some of my favorite shots from this engagement photo shoot.

Nick Moore – Attorney Head Shots – Ben Briones Studios

This week we had Mr. Nick Moore, a local attorney, stop by the Studio for professional head shots. Mr. Moore brought in two sports coats, which was perfect for the backgrounds we had setup for him. A mutual friend and fellow attorney, Ignacio Mendoza, referred Nick to us. A few months back we took Ignacio’s attorney head shots as well.

Depending on what the attorney does we try our best o get the best look for him or her. We tried a variety of positions and facial expressions for Mr. Moore and these seem to be my favorite shots. Take a peek and enjoy!

Nerva Charles Jr – Musician Portrait – Edinburg, Texas

There’s days when you just meet such a wonderful soul and things just click. Last week I met Nerva Charles Jr, a Christian Rapper, who’s music is fire and is about to do big things! Nerva booked us for an hour photo shoot but turned out to be a three hours long fun filled photo shoot and jam session.

These are my favorites shots from his photo shoot. He chose three awesome outfits the really popped and matched his personality. One of my favorites parts from the shoot was when he showed us some of his latest music and he went off allowing us to capture him in his form of worship. Look out for his music because he’s an extremely talented musician.

You can follow and link Nerva’s music here on his social media accounts!
