How much do grad photos cost?
Are grad photos expensive? Here's how the pricing works and what you can expect.
As a photographer, I always say that your grad photos will be priceless! You and your family will enjoy them for many years, and they will stay valuable long after the price has been forgotten. Of course, you probably didn't come here just for my opinion – so let's get more specific.
Graduation photos are an affordable branch of professional photography, balanced between high-volume companies (like school photos) and private photo studios. We try to craft a set of top-quality professional portraits for you while still keeping the costs reasonable.
The total payment is in two parts: a session fee, paid on your photo day, and the cost of products you order after you see the results.
The session fee for grad photos is paid at the time of your appointment. This fee covers the costs of taking your portraits and providing services to your student group or class. Usually this is $30.00 +GST; if you want extra photos with family or friends you can upgrade your session for an extra $10.00. (Review your session options here.)
Your portrait order is where you decide what products you wish to purchase for your family and friends. This may include prints of your photos, framed wall portraits, or simply downloads of your favourite images. The amount you will pay varies widely - some people spend only $40, others spend almost $400. An average portrait purchase is about $150 to $200.
