Philly, we want your prom photos — and as proof, here are ours

When you were in high school, this was the biggest of deals.

Philadelphia, we know you’ve got some awesome prom photos. We’d like you to share them with us.

Billy Penn is now collecting prom portraits from readers. One of the most wonderful #fbf times of the year is upon us. The fads through the decades. The high school baby faces. The portrait backdrops. In the coming weeks, we’ll be publishing a story so we can all die over the pics together as a community. Please, email your photos to cassie@billypenn.com.

If you’re feeling self-conscious about photos of your teenaged self, please know this call for submissions comes not from a desire to mock, but from love for prom looks. There’s no hateration in this dancerie, guys. Matter of fact, we’re willing to get the party started ourselves. As a sign our of commitment, we present the proof: These photos of Billy Penn and Spirited Media staffers from our big night(s).
