Graduation portraits at FSU are RAPIDLY growing in popularity! I used to get a few inquiries per year, but now I get multiple inquiries EVERY WEEK! We photographed Jessica’s cap and gown graduation session more than a MONTH before graduation, but when we arrived at Westcott Fountain there were already probably 50 other grads trying to do their sessions as well!
If you are interested in doing graduation portraits on campus I STRONGLY encourage you to schedule them as far from graduation as possible. I even have cap and gown sessions scheduled weeks AFTER graduation to avoid the crowds! Please don’t think these images can be captured the day of graduation or even the last few weeks before graduation– the crowds and the litter of champagne bottles and confetti just make it impossible!
For Jessica, we found a few spots around Westcott and Ruby Diamond, but ultimately we chose to move down to Langford Green and the Unconquered statue to avoid the crowds.
