Welcome Class of 2019 and 2020!

Why do graduation portraits?

Like weddings, graduation is an important milestone and achievement - it is the culmination of your college experience, the most memorable times of our young lives. There were times we were crippled by workloads and haunted by deadlines. Too many times we saw the sun rise and cast rays of light across your incomplete assignments. And we met the best of friends and made memories that will last forever. 

Graduation portrait sessions are best way to celebrate your achievements, now that you're in your last few months of college and the end is right around the corner. I offer a variety of photography packages designed around each of your specific needs - individual sessions, extended large group sessions, and my most popular package, couples sessions.

The Experience

I am a professional wedding and portrait photographer, and my business was born at UCLA in 2013, during grad season. Since then, I have done hundreds of portrait sessions for graduating seniors. I know all the intricacies of doing sessions at UCLA, including the best times and locations for warm golden sunset light, when Royce Hall is going to be empty, and how to spend the most time shooting and the least time walking from location to location in the summer heat. This season will my first as a college graduate, and I am looking forward using my extra time to make all of your sessions even better than before! 

I book mostly UCLA graduation sessions but if you are graduating from a different university, I would love the opportunity to do a session at your school!

Session Details

All of my packages include:

  • Consultation sessions. I go over details of my packages, answer your questions, and most importantly, I get to know you! Consultations are important to me - getting to know you before your session helps your session go smoother, makes you more comfortable, and allows me make my work more personal and tuned to you.

  • Session highlights, delivered within 2-3 days after your session. I go through each session and pick out my favorites to edit and make a collage for you to have while I finish working on the rest of your photos.

  • Online private photo gallery to view and download your images. It takes me about 1-2 weeks to finish processing your session.

  • All images are post processed, edited, and color corrected exactly as I intend them to be.
