This quince photo shoot was one of my very first sessions as a “professional”. Very excited to be sharing older work so you can see the progress of how I have developed as a photographer. Even in 2010 I was taking risks and challenging myself to capture beautiful photos for my clients. Here is a great South Padre Island Quince Portrait Session that I still enjoy seeing today. ‘

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.

We recently shot a beautiful intimate wedding at South Padre Island, Texas and I am super excited to share these photos. An old friend, Bianca, called me up one day asking for photography package pricing and I was excited because I thought she was the bride but it turned out another old friend / her best friend was the bride! I met Chanel and Bianca long ago through some mutual friends and I am glad they remembered me and chose me to capture this beautiful Island wedding.
Originally the wedding was suppose to be on the actual beach, sand and all, but the weather changed for the worst and the couple got a super nice condo to host the wedding. The decor still made it nautical and I love how intimate it was. Here are some of my favorite shots from David and Chanel’s South Padre Island Wedding.

Today I captured such a beautiful proposal at South Padre Island! Rob and the bride-to-be planned this elaborate family photo session of 30+ people at the beach but what it really was going to be was a surprise proposal. Linda, the bride-to-be, had no idea. We captured this special moment on photo and video. Special thanks to Victoria, who was the mastermind for this event. Congrats to the couple! [VIDEO BELOW]

This past weekend we photographed a beautiful couple at South Padre Island, Texas. Andrew and Abigail chose to have their ceremony by the sea sounded by their close family and friends. The bride looked stunning in her dress and Mr. Andrew and his groomsmen stood out in their maroon fishing shirts perfect for the occasion.
After the ceremony we photographed the couple and their bridal party with the ocean as their backdrop. Abigal and Andrew had special request to be photographed with their two dogs, which we happily photographed this newly formed family of four! Later in the evening the couple had their reception at Schlitterbahn Resort on South Padre Island. Here are some of our favorites shots from their wedding. Enjoy!

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.
