Kody and Jasmine – Surprise Proposal – Weslaco, TX

Check out this beautiful surprise engagement shot at Estero Llano Grande in Weslaco, Texas. Kody and I had met a few weeks before to chat and plan how this was going to unfold. If you are planning a surprise engagement I would advise planning something out with your photographer so you can get great photos and video captured. Kody and I came up with simple plan. He was going to book me for “couples photos” for their anniversary and during the shoot we would go back to the car to get some bug spray but we were really getting the ring he had hidden. We placed the ring in my lens belt and went back to the location and continued this “couples photos” to celebrate their anniversary.  Little did Jasmine know she was going to be proposed to.

Here are our favorite shots from this surprise engagement! 07.30.19_High Res_Solis Proposal_BBS-9996_WEB07.30.19_High Res_Solis Proposal_BBS-0032_WEB07.30.19_High Res_Solis Proposal_BBS-0046_WEB07.30.19_High Res_Solis Proposal_BBS-0098_WEB07.30.19_High Res_Solis Proposal_BBS-0155_WEB07.30.19_High Res_Solis Proposal_BBS-0173_WEB07.30.19_High Res_Solis Proposal_BBS-0297_WEB07.30.19_High Res_Solis Proposal_BBS-0255_WEB

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!

Glory Iris Baptismal Family Photos | Estero Llano Grande State Park | Weslaco, Texas

Last Sunday I shot some early morning beautiful family photos of the Barnes Family but the star of the photo shoot was Miss Glory Iris Barnes. Later that Sunday morning she was going to get baptized and the family wanted to celebrate with pictures before the ceremony.

We did this photo shoot at Estero Llano Grande State Park, a gorgeous state park, located in Weslaco, Texas. The Barnes wanted their baby girl photographed with scenic backdrop and this park in my opinion was the perfect place for the portrait session. A few months back Michael and Crischelle actually got married at Estero Llano Grande State Park.

We beat the sun and heat, which made the photo shoot great! Excited to share these beautiful photos with you!

Jaime’s 15th Hawaiian Luau – Weslaco, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

You only turn 15 once, so why not have a Luau? 

Mr. Jaime and his awesome mother reached out to us first for a photo both for this unique Hawaiian Luau in Weslaco, Texas.  Soon after this family booked our photo booth they also hired us for photography services.

The excitement for me comes when we document these small backyard parties. Why, you may be asking? Well it all comes down to my mission of becoming a household name and being part of the community. I want to bring value to everyone even when they don’t have a grand wedding budget. I want to be the people’s photographer.

Although I, Ben Briones, personally did not cover this event due the fact that I was out of town in Austin, Texas photographing a engagement session for another set of clients, my trust worthy-skilled associate Jessica Musick took on this unique birthday party! My client wanted to enjoy her son’s birthday without having to be behind and camera and greeting guest and we delivered on just that!

Jackie Ortiz Quince – Weslaco, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

This session was definitely a special one. Thank you Ortiz family for allowing me in your life and trusting my brand to capture these beautiful pictures of Jackie Ortiz in celebration of her 15th birthday!

The location that was chosen for the portraits and event is a beautiful outdoor venue named Hacienda Paraiso in Weslaco, Texas. Jackie’s dress alone had so much pop! I honestly really happy with these results because I felt like it flowed so smoothly.  And the fact you allowed me to be as creative as I wanted really added to these beautiful images.

Enjoy!
