What Graduates Need to Know:
Not every look is timeless.
Take time to think about your look for your photo session. These are photos you and your family will look back on over the years, so come dressed as your best self. If you’re not sure what to wear with the gown, here are a couple classic options you can use to get your outfit ideas flowing:
- A collared shirt or blouse always complements the gown nicely
- Pair a buttoned-up collar with a tie in a colour that works with the gown; we can provide a tie if needed
- A tank top style shirt will not be visible in the V neck of the gown
If you choose to wear a tank top under your gown, you may bring an additional shirt/outfit for any casual or vintage photos you have scheduled. Last, please be sure your hands and nails are looking their best as they will be visible in some of the poses, for example, those with a diploma and/or flowers.
Be Your Best Self!
Along with traditional cap & gown portraits, if desired, we’ll photograph casual and vintage black & white portraits, too. Come prepared to show off your talent, hobby or whatever makes you unique with props or instruments that can be included in your causal portrait. Photographers have the final say on what is deemed appropriate as props.
Be on time.

As always, Edge Imaging takes measures to ensure the safety of students being photographed. In addition to our well-trained staff and a clean environment, we have secured thousands of sanitized gowns from a local company; gowns are used by one student then deposited into a receptacle for safe transportation back to the rental company where they are properly washed and sanitized. Gowns are optional, students may be photographed without a gown – we suggest a white collared shirt and a solid-coloured tie for a traditional look, or wear something that shows your personality – it’s up to you!
