UCF Graduation Photography is one of the facets of my business that I love. Graduates are bright eyed and bushy tailed, about to embark on a new chapter – and the grads of the past year or two are always looking for a special way to mark the occasion due to the Pandemic robbing them of walking across the stage.
As a UCF grad myself, being on campus is always fun. We are truly lucky to have such a beautiful campus – it’s a great spot for not only a photoshoot to mark your graduation, but also a great spot for a professional headshot as well.
All the grads I photograph get a headshot with their session — I just think it’s important to have as you enter the next chapter. Additionally, we ALWAYS include some shots by the fountain!
I usually start shoots right in front of Milican Hall, which has a beautiful rose gold mirrored window that makes amazing lighting at the beginning and end of the day. The beautiful brick also makes for a very college-vibe.
I also encourage my Grad Photo clients to bring some cute props! With a session that includes just one person, it’s easy to incorporate props into our time shooting together. Confetti, balloons, your decorated hat, CHAMPAGNE, and what ever else you can come up with and are willing to carry!
In the case of the client below, she was an education major and brought some of her favorite books that she was going to be including in her classroom. It’s those little details that really tailor your photoshoot to you.
I always counsel clients on what to wear if they want me to. I have a basic set of guidelines that ensure clients get the most out of their session with me. You can see some of those basic rules at this blog I wrote.
The other thing to note about my UCF Graduation Shoots is that they make an ideal gift. Grads usually love it as a way to mark their accomplishment and as a bonus you can get some great photos of the graduate in your life.
If you have any questions about my shoots, you can find my pricing here.
I usually suggest the Mini Session for my grads who are just doing the shoot by themselves. If they want to include a family larger than 4 people, I suggest doing the Full Hour long session!
