Safety Protocols

Edge Imaging procedures allow students to remove their mask while being photographed. However, some boards/schools may have different rules and require students to keep their masks on during their photo session. Please refer to the communications sent by your school for more information.
Edge has implemented a new photography set-up and new procedures to ensure social distance compliance:
  • Photographers are educated and tested
  • Edge staff supplied with PPE/instructed how to properly wear it
  • Wayfinding signage in use to instruct staff and students where to walk
  • We’ve eliminated our pre-pay program so students no longer hand order forms to photographers at the camera; instead, parents can purchase photos after photo day online
  • We work with each board/school and local public health authorities to ensure we are compliant with vaccine directives
By ordering online, we are reducing the number of touchpoints of physical items going through the school, therefore reducing the likelihood of spreading COVID-19. The online ordering site also ensures a faster turnaround on your order.

Simply download our permission form, fill it out, and have your child bring it to school on retake day. They’ll need to show it to their teachers to be able to leave class for their retake. Please note that, due to the ever-changing situation around COVID-19, some schools may ask you to send in an email request versus a physical form; and some schools may not be hosting retake days this year. Visit to see whether we’ll be at your school for retakes.
Absolutely! You’ll be able to choose from the photos taken on your child’s original photo day or their retake session. The choice is yours!
For ease of ordering, students’ retake photos will be available online using the same portrait and pass codes that you used to access their original photos. In some cases, you may need to clear your browser history in order to be able to see the retake photos.

Group Photos

We sure hope so! However, Edge will continue to prioritize safety of students and staff first. With the need for social distancing, group photos will vary from school to school. Your school may have opted for an alternative group photo product for students or booked us to come back in the spring to take a group picture at that time.
We send group photos separately from individual photo orders. Class photos will be distributed by the teacher to each student in the class.
Group photos vary by school. Communication will be sent via your school regarding group photos.
This varies by school. If your school typically receives a group photo, one will be provided for each student in the class, regardless of whether they are in the picture.
If a group photo was taken of your child’s class, yes, you can! You may order a premium group product of your child’s class group photo online at Premium group products are available for purchase as a standalone item, or as an add-on if purchasing a photo package/product.
You can order the group photo online at, under the “specialty” tab. Please note that for the privacy of the students featured in the image, you won’t see a preview of your child’s class photo, but a sample class photo instead.
No problem! If you prefer your child’s picture not be distributed (in a group or individual photo), your child should NOT be photographed on photo day (in group or individual). Inform your child’s school of your preference so they can ensure your child does not have their photo taken.
  • Your child’s school does not take group photos.
  • Your child was not present on the day the group photo was taken and may not be linked to the image.
  • Your child’s class group photo has not been taken yet. Photo day may not have happened yet, or your school prefers to have group photos taken on retake day or in the spring.

There are two ways to sign up for your graduation portraits. Your school may have sign-up sheets in the office, or you may be able to book grad appointments online at with your school code. A digital flyer will be available to provide you with detailed program information. We encourage students to book their appointments early as spaces fill up very quickly.
Please call our customer care team at 1-888-416-3343 to pay with a credit card.
The fee paid at the camera covers the cost of your photo session and your premium proof booklet. Depending on your school, the sitting fee may also include a graduation class composite. If you are receiving a composite, it will be delivered to the school before the end of your school year. Your sitting fee does not cover the cost of any printed photos.
We recommend wearing a white collared shirt, with a tie if you’d like. Your session may also include casual shots – check your appointment notice or school office for details. For more information on what to expect from your graduation photo session, watch this video.
No, however, we are taking special measures with gowns during the pandemic. 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 are following the same protocol as the Retail Council of Canada and local public health authorities with regards to gowns. Each gown is used by one student and staged for a minimum of 24 hours before it is reused. 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!
As part of our commitment to protecting students’ health, Edge will not be providing props during your photo shoot. Please feel free to bring your own flowers, books, etc. to be photographed with during your graduation photography session.
An email will be sent to you after retouching is complete, approximately three-four weeks after your photo session. This email will include the portrait code and pass code that you require to order online. You will also receive a hard copy proof booklet in the mail.
Each high school or university graduation portrait you order from Edge Imaging is manually retouched by a professional retouching artist. Premium retouching of facial blemishes is included at no additional charge – it’s our gift to you! Advanced retouching is available for braces, etc. Please contact us for details and pricing at 1-888-416-3343.
If a retake is scheduled at your school, you will have to book your appointment at your school or online at as our customer care department does not have a schedule. Please note that we are unable to control whether it is your retake or original photo which appears on the class composite or yearbook.

Photo orders with standard shipping selected are shipped through Canada Post. They are the ones who determine the cost of shipping to your home from the Edge Imaging lab in Burlington, Ontario.
At this time, free shipping is offered only on ship-to-school orders. Keep an eye on your inbox, though, as we may send out limited-time special offers on free shipping from time to time.
If you are placing an order for school photos after the due date listed on your proofs, you must have them shipped to your home.
Shipping your photo order for free to the school may take as long as seven-eight weeks from the day you place your order. This is because we don’t start printing photos until all orders have been collected, after the due date.
At this time, for everybody’s safety, we are not allowing visitors in the office.
