It’s always nice to switch things up a bit from all the weddings we work to shoot an 18th birthday party. This wasn’t just any 18th birthday party though, it’s what’s known in the Filipino community as a Debut. Think of it like a Sweet 16/Cotillion on steroids. Clarissa’s older brother Jan pretty much planned the whole event and took care of every little detail. Talk about sibling love! My team and I had a blast being amongst their family and friends. They were all so much fun to be around, it wasn’t like work at all. From shooting lots of fun photos with the family, the court, and even with all the guests present, to getting down on the dance floor myself later that night, the day flew right by and before we knew it, we had to wrap up our “work” day. Big thanks to Clarissa, Jan, their parents, the awesome court, and the rest of the family for making the day so memorable for my team and I. Take a scroll down and enjoy!
