Alicia Quince Portraits – International Museum of Art & Science – Ben Briones Studios

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. Alicia Quince_HighRes_BenBrionesStudios-32_WEBAlicia Quince_HighRes_BenBrionesStudios-27_WEBAlicia Quince_HighRes_BenBrionesStudios-20_WEBAlicia Quince_Edits_BBP-10_WEBAlicia Quince_Edits_BBP-4_WEB

Stacie Longoria – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Bridal portrait sessions are some of my favorite photo shoots to conduct but it’s always so hard to show them off because we have to keep them secret so the groom won’t see them. Here are some I took back in 2014 for Mrs. Stacie at Memory Lane Photo Spot. This venue makes for beautiful bridal portraits because of style of the home and how they family has it decorated. Stacie was also amazing to work with because she trusted my creative eye and was a gorgeous bride. Here are my favorite shots from this bridal session.

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/

Client Review

Janie Alaniz Family Portraits – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

As an event photographer you are bound to get a request for family photos at someones Quince or Wedding by an invited guess. Here is a great example of that experience. The issue of “double dipping” could come up but sometimes it’s okay. For this particular photo it was okay and let me tell you why.

Janie (woman in pink) was the reason I was booked for this quince, which was her nieces event. Janie came to me seeking photography and video services for her daughter’s quince (young lady in purple) and offered to bring other Mom’s who’s daughter’s were also going to be having quince’s that year if I were to give them a bulk deal. Well, one of the Mom’s, was the mother of Brianna, the quince in which we took this family photo.

After that complicated link of families this is what the results where. Janie asked if I could take some quick family photos of the family because they were already dressed up so I said yes. Later the mother bought prints from us and everything turned out great. Today, Mrs. Janie, still hires us for different events.

Esmer Family Portraits – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Family photos can be nerve reckoning and sometimes stressful when it comes to the outfits you are coordinating for your family, especially if you have a big family. Today I wanted to show off this photo session because they did such a great job. I love the black, red and silver color combo they chose.

Esmer (Mom) put her smallest girls in the same dress because many times the little ones want to match their siblings or for them they do care what you put them in. I do like that she put her oldest girl in a different outfit because you can distinguish that she’s older and plus she matched with her Dad. Esmer wore a beautiful black top with a silver metallic sheer skirt to match her husband’s metallic pants.

What I love about this photo session is every which way you pose the family as a whole or the kids they would match so well. Enjoy!

Zavala Family Portraits – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones

When planning a family photo session one thing that you need to consider is the location. Living in the Rio Grande Valley we all know it’s extremely hot and sunny so when discussing the photo shoot with my clients I always show them locations that have both indoor and outdoor areas to shoot in. Now, most of the places are going to charge you to use them so you have to prepare for that as well. I have a rule with my clients; if the location is $100 and below I will pay for it, but if it’s more than $100 I asks the client to split the cost with me. I already have a location fee built into my premium portrait packages just in case we do shoot at a place that charges you to use it.

For this particular family photo session we used the very popular Memory Lane Photo Spot located in Mission, Texas. I love this place for family photos because it has both indoor and outdoor variety and the owners are super nice! The place is a one-hundred year old home with lots of character and well decorated. The inside has a beautiful wood finish with a staircase, a piano, and very nice furniture. The outdoors is lush with beautiful landscaping and rustic settings. I have used Memory Lane Photo Spot for all kinds of photos shoots including bridal, engagements, maternity, etc. Here are my favorite outdoor shots of the Zavala Family at Memory Lane Photo Spot in Mission, Texas. ZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-1_WEBZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-5_WEBZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-6_WEBZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-12_WEBZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-17_WEBZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-25_WEBZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-27_WEBZavalaFamily_HighRes_BBS-16_WEB

Jessica Styles MUA – Brand Portraits – Hidalgo Texas

Lately, I have been seeing a lot of Jessica’s name and her work from local photographers and models. Jessica Styles is a professional makeup artists and powerhouse in local women’s business circles. I saw her brand rising and contacted her to  see if she would be willing to build her brand with photography of her self. Usually clients want to know who they are working with and having photos of yourself on your marketing products is important. Jessica and I scheduled a photo shoot at The Old Hidalgo Pump House and these are some of my favorite photos from the session.
