Commencement Photography

Just like the graduation itself, it all starts at rehearsal, usually during the week of commencement. We come to the site of the graduation and walk through all the steps with you. This is to ensure that there are no surprises on the day of the ceremony.

Our expertly trained photographers arrive a minimum of 90 minutes before commencement begins. Details for diploma presentation and photographer location are confirmed, lighting is metered and the equipment prepared and checked. All equipment used is hand-held; there are no tripods, lighting kits, or power cables, nothing that may cause an unsightly presentation on or around the stage.

The photographers require very little space and they will only be seen during the diploma presentation. The flash used for the pictures is a small strobe that is used only to fill in shadows and is usually unnoticed by those watching the ceremony.

After the ceremony, special photo proofs are mailed to the graduates and the images are posted to our secure order web page. We offer several different packages from which to choose, as well as our photo retouching service. The only time we contact the graduate is when we mail their proof.
