An overview of commencement photography services by GradImages

An-overview-of-commencement-photography-services-by-GradImagesEach year, thousands of schools across the United States and Canada rely on GradImages to capture memories for almost two million graduates.  We are honored to be the most trusted name in commencement photography.

The GradImages Philosophy

Commencement is the most important event at every school, and a once-in-a-lifetime memory for your graduates and their families.  At GradImages, we believe the significance of these events must be reflected in everything we do.  From client relationships to customer service, and photographer training to order fulfillment, our motto is this: "Every Detail.  Every Time."

Our Focus

Our specialty is commencement photography and we talk, plan and train to better execute ceremonies all year long.  Our work-flow, development, and training all revolve around delivering superior services to graduates and commencement coordinators.  This is one of many reasons why more schools across North America prefer GradImages over other "all inclusive" companies. You may have a fantastic history professor, well respected and liked by the students, but you would never ask her to teach a chemistry course.  She just doesn't have the knowledge or the experience with the content and that same concept applies to our profession.
