Commencement Photos

Professional photographers will take three photos of each graduate. Two are posed photos just prior to ascending the stage, while the third is as the graduate shakes hands with platform party. The photographer is positioned just off-stage for the perfect shot of your graduate's proud moment. Proofs will be e-mailed to each graduate shortly after the ceremony to be considered for purchase. You do not need to sign up for this service in advance; every candidate and graduate will have their photograph taken on stage. There is no obligation to make a purchase.

Photography website coming soon.
