7 Simple Ideas That Can Spice Up Your Graduation Photoshoot

7 Simple Ideas That Can Spice Up Your Graduation Photoshoot

Booking a graduation photoshoot with RTW Photography is easy, but what about everything else involved in a photoshoot?

You have to consider:

  • Your wardrobe: are you wearing school colors or not?
  • Your hair.
  • Your makeup.
  • Locations on campus.
  • Poses.
  • And that’s just to name a few…

Cap and gown graduation photoshoots are a classic and send the message of a victorious and completed collegiate career. If you’re looking for something more to depict you celebrating your diploma, here are some ideas:

1. Champagne Showers

If you are at or above the legal drinking age of 21, popping a champagne bottle could be a nice “toast” to completing your collegiate career. Bubbly is always popped during a time a celebration and a graduation photoshoot is the perfect occasion. The bubbles and overflow of champagne can be the perfect touch of flair to your photoshoot!

2. Colored Smoke Bombs

If you have a flair for the dramatics, colored smoke could be just what you’re in the market for. If you are part of an organization on campus, particularly Greek life, colored smoke may be a creative way to “display your letters.”

You can create imagery with it by holding it or having it sit behind you in a grandeur gesture. Either way, smoke can add some fun to your graduation photoshoot.

3. Outfit Changes

Why stick with the classic cap and gown pictures if you have the option not to? Outfit changes are a fun way to describe your personality in a photoshoot. They give the audience a little sense of who you are. Outfit changes also provide you with a way to incorporate plenty of school pride!

These are just a few ideas to spice up your shoot. Others not mentioned were confetti, locations, and even friends, all of which can make your photos more lively.

4. Personalized Graduation Cap

Many college and university graduates decorate their graduation caps. Personalized graduation caps are a great way to add creativity and character to your graduation photoshoot! Graduates use their caps as a way to communicate a message or share parts of their life leading up to their graduation.

5. Confetti and Glitter

What’s that saying? Throw happiness around like it’s confetti? Confetti and glitter are a fun touch to add in your graduation photoshoot. Whether it’s multi-colored confetti or representative of your college or university’s colors, add some sparkle to your shoot!

6. Balloons

Whether they’re number balloons that represent the year of your graduation or multi-colored balloons that match your college or university’s colors — these can be a fun touch to commemorate your graduation!

7. Put On Your White Coat

Wearing your white coat is just another way to celebrate yourself in your graduation photos! Show off that freshly-laundered, crisply-ironed, and hard-earned white coat in a photoshoot that celebrates all of your scholarly achievements.

Make your graduation photos memorable when you book with RTW Photography. Turn a classic event into a complete celebration!
