Popular Questions:

Q: Do you provide a cap and gown if I don't have one?

A: I can gladly provide a FSU black cap and official gown with the stole for props/wearing during your shoot! Just ask :-)

Q: When do you conduct your graduation shoots? 
A: ANYTIME! Popular areas around campus get extremely crowded about 2 weeks before graduation through the ceremony date. I suggest doing your photos early (1-2 months before graduation) which allows time to get announcements made! You can also choose to take your photos after graduation! These less hectic times ensure a calmer, relaxed shoot, with less people in the backgrounds of your photos, and NO LINES waiting at Westcott/popular areas!
I avoid doing photoshoots around the time of the actual event because the popular photo areas are very congested.

Q: What is the turnaround time on the photos?

Your photo gallery will be ready for viewing 48 hours after your photoshoot! Please allow 1-2 weeks editing time for chosen photos.

Q: When should I book my shoot with you, and how should I book?

A: As soon as possible! I normally begin booking shoots at the beginning of a semester. You can get in touch with me by filling out the contact form on my website. Please include your name, type of shoot (gold/garnet), your chosen locations, and any questions you may have!

Q: Can I bring props, friends, or family members with me?
A: ABSOLUTELY! This is your graduation shoot, and it should be remembered as YOU want it to be! Feel free to invite family, friends (non-graduating), or bring pets, props, school-related items, etc. Get creative! Confetti (paper), balloons, champagne, signs, sunglasses, class rings, are great ideas. Please no glitter (trust me on this one).
