Nadeshikokai Special for

2023 Coming of Age Ceremony

なでしこ会 成人式 in LA 2023

Congratulations on your Coming of Age!

Are you ready to commemorate this special occasion with photos that will be your lasting memories?


We are here to help you create and preserve those memories for years to come!

Our team of professional photographers will be on-site offering portrait sessions in the Japanese garden. Depending on the photography plan you selected, we will take formal and informal pictures for you as well as with your friends and family. Before leaving the venue for the day, come and pick up your printed photo to take home. In addition, we will put your images in a private, password-protected online album so that you can share this joyous occasion safely with friends and family, wherever they may be.

Simply purchase one of the three photography plans together with your kimono rental (or registration-only package) to secure your appointment, and we will guide you through the rest. 

See you in January!



Photo sessions are by appointment only and must be prepaid. We regret that we are unable to accommodate same-day, on-site reservations.
