Photo Day Tips

Tips for taking the best photos

Before photo day

  • If a haircut is required, aim to have it done a week ahead of time.
  • Check to make sure your uniform or clothing for photo day is clean and wrinkle free.
  • Perfect your smile with practice before photo day.

On your photo day

  • Wear bright and solid colours; these will emphasize your face and smile!
  • Opting for long sleeves allows the face to stand out more in your photo.
  • Pack a comb just in case of an emergency!
  • If you normally wear glasses, feel free to keep them on! Our photographers are trained to reduce any apparent glare.
  • Remember to relax and have fun – today is your day!

High school grad photos

  • A white-collared shirt is recommended to create contrast against the dark gown.
  • Pair your shirt with a tie that will compliment your gown; a tie can be provided if needed.
  • Casual shots are optional, but feel free to bring a change of clothes and some props to make the most of them!
