How does it work?
In short, just visit our studio and we'll take your photos! We are on the main floor of SUB, just up the stairs from where you pick up your gowns.
If you arrive when it's busy, we may need to ask for your patience while we fit everyone in. To avoid the rush, book an appointment with us another time - we have the official graduation attire, just like you wear at the ceremony, and we are open year-round.
Convocation Frequently Asked Questions:
Of course you do! Our opinion might be a little biased though, so you should ask your parents too!????
Seriously, your graduation is a fairly big deal, and should be remembered in a way that lasts. Portraits are a great way to do that, and years from now you'll be happy to have them. Put on the cap & gown and see how it feels - we think you'll like it.
Professional photos also make a great gift for the people who support you. Your friends and family might want your photos more than you do! A portrait is a perfect gift to say thanks to your parents, grandparents, and loved ones.
Photo sessions cost $25 for individuals and $10 extra to include family or friends.
This session fee does not include prints or downloads; you will have the chance to purchase prints, downloads and other products from your photo gallery.
If you are not familiar with purchasing professional photography, please review our article How much do grad photos cost?
You certainly can - in fact, we encourage it!
Convocation is a very busy time at our studio, so if you visit us in a week or two (after June 16) there will be less people around and you may find our team a bit less stressed as well.
Don't worry! We have the official cap, gown and hood for all U of A programs so you can visit us another time and not miss out on having the right clothing in your photos.
SUB Photo is located right upstairs from where you pick up your degree parchment and grad gown. Look for us in the Students' Union Building, on the main level across from the University Bookstore entrance.
