Anyone ever done a 4am photo shoot at South Padre Island? It’s a lot of fun especially if you are professional photographer. The colors are beautiful and capturing an image like that for your client is such a treat! The sky from sunrise and on on a beautiful morning at beach front will always get you great images. Here are some photos I took for my client at South Padre Island.

The Kelley’s have been a longtime client of my studio. Truly since this I photographed their beautiful wedding. Today I wanted to share their South Padre Island wedding story with you. It has been since more than 4 years since the wedding but the photos are still so vibrant and relevant.
The wedding ceremony took place at the historic Chapel by the Sea located at 33425 State Park Rd 100, South Padre Island, TX. You could not ask for a more beautiful church for a wedding ceremony. Then the reception followed at the luxury hotel Blue Sapphire also found on the strip of South Padre Island, Texas.
This wedding will go down in my books as one of my all time favorite weddings of my career and this is why. The couple was just amazing to work with. Both Shawn and Mandy both believed in me, trusted my team, and gave us complete creative freedom. Secondly, Shawn and Mandy are one good looking couple and their baby girl is just gorgeous. A year or so ago I got to take their family photos at their dad’s ranch in San Antonio, Texas and they are just such a beautiful family. Lastly, the couple treated us like guest. They paid for our hotel at the beach resort, they treated us like guest throughout the wedding day and continued to treat me and my team like longterm friends years after their wedding day.
I don’t have many more words for this wedding because the photos themselves speak volumes and not because I and my team took them but because it was just such a special day!

Iliasis Muniz is a super talented up and coming photographer out of the South Padre Island area. She has been creating lively art for her clients for over 3-years now and has big ambitions to expand way beyond the Rio Grande Valley. She’s bubbly, giggly and a lot of fun! Definitely important qualities to have in the photography industry. For anyone who is familiar with photography personality, Jasmine Starr, Ms. Iliasis Muniz tends to remind me of her a lot, but of course, Iliasis has her own flair and unique qualities that allow her to stand out.
I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Iliasis for the first time this past Tuesday. What I really enjoyed was that she turned out to be exactly how you would imagine her being just by her personality on social. And to top it off she was so nice and brought me an unexpected gift. We met at Moonbeans in McAllen, Texas and talked about photography, business and life. Then we produced this pretty cool video interview laying out a little bit of her story. I think till this date this is one of my favorite episodes of The Photographer Series! Check it out, enjoy it, and let us know what you think!

These portraits are by special request for my client Cynthia Cameron, who’s also a Ben Briones Studio’s bride. When Cynthia and her husband came into my office for wedding photography information we clicked right away. Laughter and heart-felt stories brought us closer but strongest connection we had was that we shared the same faith and beliefs.
When Cynthia signed with Ben Briones Studios she was still a student at The University of Texas Pan American but was very close to graduating. The couple asked me if I would be willing to take Cynthia’s graduation portraits. She voiced she had never had a professional photo session for herself, so I added the session into their wedding package as a gift.
After a few months of planning we finally decided on all the photo session details. Cynthia had a special requests though. One of her requests was if we could incorporate her faith and depict spirituality into her graduation photo session. Her second request was if she could include the love of her life in “one photo” because Baltazar, her fiancé, had been by her side through her college career. And lastly, she wanted her session at South Padre Island but not on the actual beach.
As photographers we get a lot of special requests To me that sounded simple but I’d like to know what you think?
I present to you a few images from this special photo session.
