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.

Bobby and Priscilla Engagement – Casa Polonia – Weslaco, Texas

A few weeks back I took these beautiful engagement photos of Bobby and Priscilla at the gorgeous Casa Poloina located in Weslaco, Texas. The couple are getting married soon and wanted to take some beautiful couples but also includes their handsome son. I love how bold their outfits choices where.

We chose Casa Polonia because of the beautiful indoor and outdoor settings it has to offer. The couple fit right in because they have such great style. I was also surprised by how helpful the owner was. Once we got there Mike, the owner, helped with their son and carried him while we shot the couple. Later on in the shoot we added their son to the photos and I also love how sweet those came out! The couple got a engagement-family photo session infusion photo shoot. Here are my favorite photos from this session!

Jayda Gabrielle Portraits – Casa Polonia – Weslaco Texas

Pretty in pink, Miss Jayda Gabrielle looked stunning in her Quinceañera portraits that we took at Casa Polonia located of Texas Boulevard in Weslaco, TX.  The location’s timeless elegance went great with Jayda’s beautiful Quinceañera dresses. Jayda began her photo session wearing her classic soft pink gown, and later changed into a less formal hot pink dress. We took advantage of the diversity of the location, which made Jayda’s portraits look amazing!

Aaron & Chloe E-Session – Weslaco, Texas- Ben Briones Studios

Casa Polonia in Weslaco, Texas has become one of our favorite locations to photograph our couples lately. It’s super versatile yet challenging. The location has so much to offer and you can capture beautiful shots from every angle. The owner Mike is also such a swell guy. He has always accommodated us when we are in a bind. Thank you Mike, You are truly a friend!

When my clients and I were looking for places to shoot in Weslaco we had overlooked Casa Polonia. The couple had a few other places in mind but every session we scheduled at those locations never happened due to some circumstance like weather or scheduling conflicts. Then finally we found Casa Polonia and we booked it. The client and after they saw the photos of the location they fell in love with the place and we booked it.

The day of the shoot was a little challenging but nothing I couldn’t handle. I took on this shoot alone without an assistant and I am glad I did because I really got to bond with the couple. When we arrived to the location there was day light but quickly left us. All I had for lighting was my simple one strobe light with a silver reflecting umbrella. I call this my lazy-man-light-setup. Well I took on the shoot at night and thanks to creative decision making [aka slow shutter shinnigans] and patient clients I was able to create these beautiful images.
