You’ve worked hard and waited so long for this. Graduation Day! It’s almost here.
But before you know it, you’ll have walked across the stage, accepted your diploma, clinked glasses with friends and family members and then, it will all be over.
Don’t let the day go by without memorializing it forever in photos. Read on to discover the photos you won’t want to miss taking on graduation day.
#1 Graduation Selfie
It’s 2015. And what better way to get with the times than to take a graduation selfie. Of course, if you happen to be speaking at graduation, it will make the photo all that better.
#2 The 2015 Picture
In 60 years, you may not be able to remember exactly what year it was that you graduated. So get out your best photo editing and app-wielding skills and snap a picture that incorporates your grad year. Like this one.
#3 Fraternity/Sorority Picture
Don’t forget about your sisters and brothers (sorority and fraternity that is). You’ve spent four years sleeping on sleeping porches, volunteering and partying with them. Don’t forget to take a group shot (the non-alcoholic kind) on grad day. DISCLAIMER: Only climb onto the roof at your own risk.
#4 That’s My Major Picture
Graduating as an MD? An MBA? A librarian? Grab the prop that best identifies your major and smile!
#5 Crowd Picture
Tuck your cell phone into your gown and get live action shots during the graduation ceremony.
#6 Grab Your Friends and Get Creative Picture
Instead of the standard group shots, grab your pals and take photos of a couple of different poses, then make a collage like this after the fact.
#7 Diploma Picture
You spent years working on getting this piece of paper, not only will it take you places, it makes a great prop for a photo.
#8 The Graduation Toss
We take no responsibility for this recommendat, try at your own risk! But how many times more times in your life will your fraternity brothers or friends have the opportunity to toss you up in the air? Make sure to have your graduation sash, leis, gown, and robe on for awesomeness.
#9 Mortar Board Picture
Especially if you spend all that time decorating it. Get pictures of it on your head, off your head, on your friend’s heads. You get the idea.
#10 Obligatory Family Picture
And last but not least, family. Don’t leave out your real brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, mom, step cousin …. the list goes on and on. But, it’s more than likely that these family members helped you get where you are on graduation day. So pose, smile and say “cheese” with them.
We hope you enjoyed this post. Let us know if we’re missing any must have photos and we’ll update our list!
