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.

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 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.

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.

Jayda Gabrielle Portraits – Casa Polonia – Weslaco Texas

Pretty in pink, Miss Jayda Gabrielle looked stunning in her Quinceañera portraits that we took at Casa Polonia located of Texas Boulevard in Weslaco, TX.  The location’s timeless elegance went great with Jayda’s beautiful Quinceañera dresses. Jayda began her photo session wearing her classic soft pink gown, and later changed into a less formal hot pink dress. We took advantage of the diversity of the location, which made Jayda’s portraits look amazing!

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
