Mayra Vaquera – 30th Bday Shoot – McAllen, Texas

1989 was a good year! Turning 30 is a big thing and what better way to celebrate by moment than by taking badass photos? My friend of many years, Mayra, reached out to me for this special photo shoot to celebrate her upcoming birthday. She wanted something private, fun but grand to celebrate the big 3-0! We planned out the shoot to be studio and outdoor session. We did two outfits and a crown in studio and a beautiful black dress outdoors with her black Ford Mustang.  These are my favorite photos from her 30th birthday photo session. 2019-03-20_00012019-03-20_00022019-03-20_00032019-03-20_00042019-03-20_00052019-03-20_00062019-03-20_00072019-03-20_0008

Lorraine Bridal Shower – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

One thing that we enjoy photographing as well are Bridal Showers. Many of the brides that sign with us usually ask us if we could capture some photos at their bridal showers. I think it’s great to document these events because you get to meet more of the family and hangout more with the bride before the big day,

In this blog you will see us capturing special moments for our bride Lorraine, who I shot her engagement photos and wedding pictures as well. She had her bridal shower at the famous Birdie’S Bristo located in the heart of Downtown McAllen, Texas. It is such a cute and quaint place to have breakfast, brunch and bridal showers! Here are some of our favorite shots from this event.

Ginger Garza – Edinburg, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

A while back when I first started doing more studio photography at my photo studio in Edinburg, Texas I asked a few friends if they wanted to model for me. I wanted to practice my light setup and Ms. Ginger was one of those who came through! Ginger is such a intelligent, beautiful and loving person and I think my goal was to capture that through portraiture.

Ginger is a University of Texas at Austin grad. She is stylish and sweet! Ginger is a great role model for many young women. Here are some of my favorite shots Ginger’s studio session! 2018-06-04_00192018-06-04_00182018-06-04_00222018-06-04_00202018-06-04_00212018-06-04_00252018-06-04_00242018-06-04_0023

Best photographer ever!!

 

Jefte Martinez – Musician Portrait – Edinburg, Texas

Jefte Martinez is a Christian Musician out of Mcallen, Texas. Jefte stopped by on a weekend this summer to take some portraits at my newly remodeled photography studio in Edinburg, Texas and these are the results of that photo shoot.

For this photo shoot I did a mix of both warm tones and cool tones to get two different effect for my client. When you own a studio you have the freedom to explore and especially if your client is game! Jefte was awesome because he trusted my judgment and allowed me to shoot freely. These are my favorite photos from this studio portrait session. P 06.03.17_PRINT_Jefte Martinez Portraits_BBS-6379_pp_BLOG06.03.17_PRINT_Jefte Martinez Portraits_BBS-6344_pp_BLOG06.03.17_PRINT_Jefte Martinez Portraits_BBS-6366_pp_BLOGP 06.03.17_PRINT_Jefte Martinez Portraits_BBS-6375_pp_BLOGP 06.03.17_PRINT_Jefte Martinez Portraits_BBS-6399_pp_BLOG

Sarah Echavarria – Edinburg, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Rio Grande Valley Football Club Toros Dancer, former RGV Vipers Snake Charmer, marathon runner and fitness advocate and now model? The list can go on for my multitalented friend Ms. Sarah Echavarria! A while back I took Sarah’s portraits for her Vipers tryouts and was definitely excited to work with her again.

Sarah and her brother Chris stopped by the studio to take some fun portraits. I really love the way Sarah’s photos came out! First she modeled a beautiful mochila purse, after she changed out into a fitness outfit and then her final outfit into some causal. The fact that we changed the background color made the photo shoot more dynamic.

I think the best part of the photo shoot was when she took some photos with her younger brother. Ever sine I have known Sarah I have seen the beautiful relationship she has with her sibling and it was very special to see them take photos together.  I will show them off soon. 06.01.17_PRINT_Sarah Echavaria_BBS-5579_pp_BLOG06.01.17_PRINT_Sarah Echavaria_BBS-5633_pp_BLOG06.01.17_PRINT_Sarah Echavaria_BBS-5652_pp_BLOG06.01.17_PRINT_Sarah Echavaria_BBS-5784_pp_BLOG06.01.17_PRINT_Sarah Echavaria_BBS-5791_pp_BLOG06.01.17_PRINT_Sarah Echavaria_BBS-5802_pp_BLOG
