Last week, I drove down to the Houston Preet Pavilion to photograph a beautiful young lady’s quinceanera. It was my first time to photograph such an event which I was covering for my friend Sam of Zaza Digital and let me tell you… I had a blast. Quince’s are so big and elaborate with at least two live bands, loud music that’ll literally get you to the dance floor – yep, I’m guilty of dancing to the beat when I’m supposed to be taking pictures, and people just out there to outdress each other. But, make no mistake. All the attention was on our beautiful Cristal who was at an important phase in her young life. Symbolic gestures like the exchange of the doll for the tiara and some awesome gifts from close friends; it was a night she’ll always remember. Congrats, Cristal!
