Graduation Photos | American University

Senior Picture Photographer | Kogod School of Business

I had the utter privilege of photographing one of my oldest friends graduation photos. She recently got her MBA from American University, and she’s just moving ahead one day at time to great things. 

I love seeing people kick ass. Am I allowed to say that in my blog posts? Kick ass. Ok, one more time. I love seeing my friends kick ass, and Trin is no exception. She and I go way back to our adolescent years, the good old 1990’s. I cherish the friendships that have traversed our span of 30 years, getting stronger as we go. It’s nothing short of amazing to look around and see community. With her degree, she will continue to do just that. Create community within larger spheres, bringing humanity into business.

For her graduation photoshoot, we knew we wanted the campus, but also a bit of nature. The Kogod School of Business is obviously quite stone-like, so we ventured around campus throughout her session. American University has a splendidly and surprisingly green campus, with little pathways that make you feel like you’re entering the forest. 

Graduation Photos

For grad photos, they can get a bit generic and cheesy. You know the kind, holding the diploma and throwing the hat and such. And honestly…we leaned into that world. Let’s admit it, a graduation gown and cap begs for a hat throw and a promenade. We did both. We also decided that eleven in the morning was the perfect time for a champagne pop. Luckily, no gear was damaged in the making of those photos, just a little sticky. 

The only thing better than seeing your friends do great stuff is getting to celebrate with them. Oh, and taking their graduation photos. That’s pretty awesome, too. 

Check out Trin’s stunning session, then head to the blog to check out more stories & photographic journeys!

"Sarah was absolutely amazing to work with! Every single picture we got back was nothing short of perfect. Our families and friends were amazed at how great our photos turned out as well as the volume of photos we received. She made sure to capture moments that were special to us on our wedding day, as well as make time to get all of the family photos we wanted. Something that I found to be really helpful was how organized Sarah was. She sent us questionnaires to get to know us and even created a day of timeline so my partner and I, and our families and bridal parties, would know what to expect and when formal photos would be taken. Her attention to detail and caring nature ensured that our photos reflected not only our wedding day but our personalities as well. I cannot say enough good things about her and her work. She is a fantastic photographer and a great person to work with.

"photos reflected...our personalities.."

"...Sarah went above and beyond our expectations. She spent ample time talking with me about my vision of the day, provided a detailed itinerary to help me stay organized, and was a listening ear when I needed practical wedding advice. Her warmth, kindness, and genuine nature helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera. In addition, we are delighted with Sarah’s technical qualities as a photographer - her sense of mise-en-scène, attention to detail, and her remarkable ability to capture poignant and symbolic moments in an inter-cultural, inter-racial, pandemic wedding."

"She made everything easy and is warm and kind..."

"Beyond being a good photographer, Sarah truly works to make her clients feel comfortable and special during her sessions. She is incredibly personable and there were never any awkward, empty moments during our session! My fiancee and I were truly in the moment and Sarah allowed us to have candid, special moments together while she captured them for us to remember forever...Our day was stress-free thanks to her detailed planning...I absolutely recommend Sarah for anyone and everyone. We are forever thankful for her openness and hard work."
