Dandy Heat – Yerberia Cultura – McAllen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

TBT

In the summer I took some photos of my friends band performing at Yerberia Cultura in McAllen, Texas. Osmar and Joseph, the guitarist and bassist, are coworkers of mine at South Texas College. They didn’t hire me to photograph this show but I thought it would be nice to get them some great live shots for their brand. I had photographed an album cover for them a while back and thought photographing their show would add some more value to them because they are a very talented band. Here are my favorite shots from this show.

Gabie & Manuel Engagement – Casa Polonia – Weslaco, Texas

Excited to share Gabie and Manuel’s engagements that we took at the popular photo shoot venue in Weslaco, Texas, Casa Polonia!  We did a set of outdoor and indoor photos for them.  This couple was so much fun to work with.  They trusted me with some of my crazy angles and ideas and I’m glad they did because I really love how their photos came out.

Although I love all of them, I have a few favorite because of the meaning behind them.  The first one is the one with the blue color gel light; I love that one because it adds a mood to something often shot and I also love it because they trusted me to get out of my comfort zone to be creative.  The second photo I’m super proud of is the McDonald’s ice cream cone engagement shot because they said their first date many years ago was at that same park with two delicious ice cream cones.

Destiny Love Quince – McAllen, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

Typically you tend to see Quince portraits photographed outdoor but for this winter wonderland style quince we chose to take the photos inside to make them look more elegant and so they can be closer to the winter theme. I really love how these shots came out because The Gala Special Events is always decorated beautifully. Here are my favorite shots from this quince photo session. You can also view more photos from her actual event here: https://benbriones.com/2014/12/09/destiny-love-pena-quince-ben-briones-studios/

Janie Alaniz Family Portraits – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

As an event photographer you are bound to get a request for family photos at someones Quince or Wedding by an invited guess. Here is a great example of that experience. The issue of “double dipping” could come up but sometimes it’s okay. For this particular photo it was okay and let me tell you why.

Janie (woman in pink) was the reason I was booked for this quince, which was her nieces event. Janie came to me seeking photography and video services for her daughter’s quince (young lady in purple) and offered to bring other Mom’s who’s daughter’s were also going to be having quince’s that year if I were to give them a bulk deal. Well, one of the Mom’s, was the mother of Brianna, the quince in which we took this family photo.

After that complicated link of families this is what the results where. Janie asked if I could take some quick family photos of the family because they were already dressed up so I said yes. Later the mother bought prints from us and everything turned out great. Today, Mrs. Janie, still hires us for different events.
