Graduation and Commencement Photos, Videos & Gifts

Commencement Photos by Island Photography

Every graduate will be photographed twice during the ceremony as they are recognized.

  • Traditional Handshake Photos: Island Photography will photograph each graduate as they cross the stage and are greeted by the President. Smile and look up at the presenter. Please do not stop and pose. These are exceptional keepsake photos.
  • Portrait Type Photos: This photo will be taken in front of a flag backdrop as graduates enter the stage. Graduates are asked to smile and look at the camera!
