Four Seasons Beverley Wilshire event photographer - Debutante Ball

The Debutante Ball

Our studio currently works with National Charity League, Assistance League, and Las Ninas (Las Madrecitas) for Debutante Ball event portraits. Our team will organize all the family and group portraits on location and create gorgeous leather photo albums for the families. We also photograph other events for these organizations like fashion shows, daughter/mother tributes, Tea/rose ceremonies, and Rainbow Luncheons. We organize and photograph hundreds of debutante portrait sessions in our private 1/2 acre garden in Newport Beach every year. The garden has a large synthetic turf area perfect for keeping those white dresses clean!

High School Team Sports

We also have years of experience in high school sports photography. We currently work with Newport Harbor High School and Corona Del Mar High School for their cheerleading, water polo, and swim teams. We love to photograph the kids in an outdoor location with natural light. High School sports photography doesn’t have to be dull and boring, right? After photographing the groups, we always have time for some fun candid photos of the kids and their best friends. These sessions can be organized for as little as $10 per student. Ask about creating a custom print packages as well. There are a lot of affordable options!
