Commencement Photographs, Gifts and Refreshments

Stage Portrait

Empire Photography has been photographing our commencement ceremonies for many years. Each graduate is photographed as they receive their diploma and a solo portrait is also taken after they exit the stage. Proofs will be sent to graduates and their families within 48 hours of the ceremony. Preregister your email address so you can receive your complimentary proofs quickly. Your commencement is an once-in-a-lifetime moment so don't miss out! If you have any questions please email Empire Photography at

Candid Photos

Capture your graduate's triumphant walk across the stage from the designated area on the left hand side of the stage as he or she is presented. The photo area will be pointed out from the stage just before the graduates names are read, and we ask that you follow along in the program and wait to come up to the area just before your student crosses, allowing all guests the opportunity to do so. Please also be mindful of guests seated nearby so you do not block their view.
