Laura Valdez Bridals – San Juan, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

The excitement of revealing bridal photos is just unbearable. Laura is unique girl. You saw her engagement session, which had a completely different style of this photo shoot but I think this one still takes the cake because she’s such a gorgeous girl. This was such a special bridal photo session because Laura’s parents and sister were present. I also had one of my super awesome friends, Felicia Sepulveda, of Shutterbug Photography helping me create these beautiful images for Mrs. Laura Valdez.

To top it off we choose such a beautiful unique wedding venue the Rio Grande Valley has to offer. Villa De Palmas in San Juan, Texas has been one of my go to venues lately because it’s a new discovery to me. It has so much to offer for all kinds of portrait photography.

Laura made such a beautiful bride. I love the mix of lace in her dress and the elegant look of her hair. Her style fit perfectly into the Spanish royal styling of the Villa De Palmas mansion. These are some of my ultimate favorite images from this photo session.

Jackie Ortiz Quince – Weslaco, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Ms. Jackie is such a sweet girl and very lively. You can definitely tell she has a bold personally just by the color selection of her dress! Both she and her mom were super open to my creative ideas, especially during her portrait session.

After meeting with her and family a few times I found out she too was a Christian, which was such a blessing to see. Made my heart happy! Her mom would tell me how involved they were at their church and how happy she was her girls were plugged in too.

Back in the day I use to rarely take quinceañera jobs but lately I have taken on quite a few because of how special these celebrations are for the family. Jackie’s quince was definitely a milestone for her and family. As a photographer it takes patience and a keen eye tell this type of story. Teenagers are unpredictable and you have to be super aware of your surroundings ready to photograph any random fun moment the client may have.

I take pride and joy in my storytelling and today I present to you a storyline of Jackie’s 15th Birthday celebration at the Hacienda Paraiso in Weslaco, Texas.
