We are often asked ‘when should I book my graduation photo shoot?‘ which we will cover in this blog post. Likewise, we also cover what to bring for your graduation photo shoot at Boutique Lifestyle Photography and how best to prepare!

Be sure to read on below to discover some great tips when booking and preparing for your professional graduation photo shoot!

Booking Your Graduation Photographer On The Day of Your Ceremony

When booking your Auckland graduation photographer at Boutique Lifestyle Photography, be sure to allow enough time to get to/from your ceremony. Traffic is normally heavier than usual with so many other graduates in the vicinity. Also, it is best to book an afternoon graduation photo shoot if you have a morning ceremony, and vice-versa. This ensures there is no stress to arrive at your booking on time. For your convenience, we also offer you on-site car parking at our Auckland photo studio, only a short drive from Auckland’s CBD.

Things to Bring to Your Graduation Photo Shoot

In addition to your regalia, be sure to bring along any other items that you may wish included within your graduation portraits at Boutique Lifestyle Photography. These can include flowers you may have received, your certificate (if you have received this prior to your booking) and perhaps any graduation related toys/gifts gifted to you. These can add another dimension to your photos, making them more personal and memorable.

If you are in doubt whether you should bring something or not, it’s best to just bring it anyway. You are always welcome to call us at Boutique Lifestyle Photography on (09) 522 5123 if you would like any advice on what to bring to your grad photo shoot.
