class of 2023, congratulations!
HEY, CLASS OF 2023!
Congrats on completing your college degree! You have no doubt faced many obstacles and challenges, but you overcame them all, and now is a time to celebrate your achievement. I graduated from UC Berkeley just last year and know what a huge milestone it is – how meaningful this time is to us graduates.
And what better way is there to celebrate your accomplishments, to remember your time at your university, and to excitedly look forward to the future than to take some grad photos – capturing moments you can look back on and cherish forever!

GOT QUESTIONS? BELOW YOU’LL FIND A PRETTY THOROUGH FAQ SECTION THAT WILL ANSWER MOST OF YOUR QUESTIONS. IF YOU HAVE ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS, PLEASE INCLUDE THEM IN YOUR INQUIRY.
The number of images means the minimum number of photos you will receive. Usually, you will receive more pictures than labeled ;)
I also offer GIF services (check my IG for examples) services for $30 for 2 GIFs and $50 for 4 GIFs.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
PLEASE READ ALL THE ANSWERS CAREFULLY, SEE BELOW FOR MY PHOTOS
Q: Can I bring family and friends for some group photos?
A: Yes, you should celebrate with your loved ones.
For Solo Sessions, you can bring up to 3 friends towards the end of the session for free. More than 3 will result in an additional charge of $50. Family can join at the last spot for a few free group photos. For Non-Solo Sessions, you can bring any amount of friends & family members for $50 but you may get fewer solo images if you bring too many of them.
Q: When we book as a group, do we get both solo and group shots?
A: Yes! You will get both solo and group photos.
Q: Do we receive raw (unedited) images?
A: No, but you can buy them.
Photographers usually do not give out raw images. Each photo is edited to be consistent in colors, brightness, and overall mood. BUT, if you want access to all the unedited images, you can purchase them for $50/per person!
Q: Do we have to prepare props?
A: Yes, please do!
Feel free to bring champagne bottles, biodegradable confetti (save our planet!), bouquet, caps & gowns, or any other items that mean a lot to you! I had clients who brought basketball, textbooks, and final papers.
Q: Can we choose the spots?
A: Yes and No.
Let me know which spots you would like to cover and I will let you know if they’re doable or even worth it. Some locations have terrible lighting at certain times and other spots are really far from one another – more traveling time would mean less photos in other spots.
Q: Can you do revision on the final photos if we don’t like the editing?
A: Unfortunately, no.
Please let me know if you don’t like any specific editing styles before I start editing.
Q: What if it rains?
A: If it rains, free rescheduling. Otherwise...
If it rains we can reschedule the session for free (although a photoshoot in the rain can be unique & fun!). Also, keep in mind that the Bay Area gets very windy sometimes; but due to limited slots, I don’t offer free rescheduling for windy days. We’ll usually cover more indoor spots on windy days, but you can also reschedule the session for $75.
Q: What is your rescheduling policy?
A: Rescheduling fee varies...
If you let me know at least 15 days before our session, I ask for $75 to reschedule the session. Any shorter notice would be $150. If you can find someone to fill in for your slot then you can avoid the rescheduling fee.
Q: Can we do an outfit change?
A: Of course! However...
You can definitely do an outfit change! But this will be part of the session and the time taken to change outfits may mean getting fewer images or covering less spots. If you plan to do an outfit change, I encourage you to book a 1.5-2 hour sessions.
Q: How long does it take for photos to be delivered?
A: I guarantee a 2 week delivery.
I usually guarantee a 2 week delivery. It really depends on how busy I get as I don't outsource an editor because I want to make sure you all get quality final products. If you really need/want the final photos ASAP, you may purchase an expedited delivery service for $75 (3 day delivery) or $100 (2 day delivery).
Q: Which campuses do you do services at?
A: Generally, every campus in the Bay!
Most of my sessions are done at UC Berkeley where I am located, but I do offer services for other campuses in the Bay – so inquire and we’ll chat!
