A Quinceanera

Is the 15th birthday of Latin or Hispanic young ladies.  It is considered a ‘coming of age’ event for these cultures and is planned for and highly celebrated by friends and families of the young woman.

When photographing a quinceanera Artisan Photographics takes an ‘all phases’ of the event approach much like we would any other life event.  There is time allocated for formal photographs as well as time for the actual celebration. It is worth mentioning that many quinces have a religious element depending on the family’s traditions. 

There are wonderful and fascinating elements to a quince some of the included customs and activities are: The Court of Honor (this represents the young ladies and her closest friends both male and female) engaging in a waltz, The Changing of the Shoes, The Toast and finally The Last Doll.

Quinceanera photography done by Artisan Photographics includes representative countries such as: Bolivia, Argentina, Chile, Columbia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala,  Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Spain, Uruguay, Venezuela.
