Debutante Ball

Debutante Ball - A formal tradition of a young lady's coming out or debut into society. In the Filipino communities it is common to celebrate a "debut" on the girls eighteenth birthday, and what a celebration it is!




















At the end of the night we decided it was our turn to get jiggy with it! Go Row!


I had the pleasure to 2nd shoot for Rowena Curtis this past weekend, and guess what? We had a blast!

The Debutante Ball, held at The Castaway, was so beautifully orchestrated in detail and presentation. I was so impressed by the love and gratitude that this family showed toward eachother and to their guests. Blessings to the birthday girl!

What's fun about 2nd shooting, is having the opportunity to be creative and help the main photographer capture all the details and spontanious moments of an event.
Row, thanks again for having me...it was a blast!
