What to bring for your graduation photo shoot

A little preparation prior to arriving for your graduation photo shoot ensures your photo shoot will be a joyous experience with magnificent results. Firstly, we are often asked ‘when should I book my graduation photo shoot?‘ We recommend booking in advance to ensure you secure your preferred date and time and avoid disappointment.

On The Day of Your Graduation Ceremony

When booking your Auckland graduation photographer, 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.

In addition to your regalia, be sure to bring along any other items that you may wish included within your graduation portraits. 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.

Bringing Your Family To Your Graduation Photo Shoot

You are more than welcome to bring along your family to your graduation photo shoot. Even better, there is no extra charge for this. It’s also a great opportunity to celebrate your academic achievements with those nearest and dearest. We can discuss with you the combinations of portraits you would like to capture within your session. So, for example your entire family in addition to individual portraits, parents with the graduate, siblings etc.

Our friendly team will assist you throughout your graduation photography session. This includes help with aspects such as posing through to providing advice during your image viewing. Together, this ensures a relaxed and fun-filled experience that is worthy of your achievements.

How Do I Book My Auckland Graduation Photo Shoot?

Feel free to contact us with any booking enquiries you may have. We are more than happy to assist you with any queries or questions. Also, please take into consideration that bookings are made on a first-come-first-served basis. As graduation season is a very busy period for us, be sure to book early to avoid disappointment.

And finally, we have many people booking their graduation shoots well after their actual graduation. By simply bringing along a hired regalia, photo shoots can be held retrospectively. So remember that it is never too late to celebrate!
