We offer sessions from a quick 10 minute cap and gown shoot to a two hour (or more!) photo session across the Penn State campus. Groups are welcome – feel free to bring along some friends, and everyone can get individual as well as group photos.

We offer morning and afternoon appointments, seven days a week. Morning sessions can start anytime from 8am-11am (the earlier the better to avoid the crowds), and afternoon sessions typically start from 2pm-5pm.

Please note that wait times at popular spots like the Lion Shrine and the PSU sign by the stadium can be quite long (15 minutes to an hour or more). If possible, we recommend having a friend or family member stand in line, so that when we arrive we don’t have to wait as long. Extra coverage is available if you need more time – see below for details!

  • Popular spots on campus include the Lion Shrine, Old Main, Pattee Library, the Pennsylvania State University sign, Beaver Stadium, and the Arboretum. We can also stop at any campus building, as well as downtown.
  • All packages include the high resolution digital files of all your photos, with a license agreement allowing unlimited non-commercial use of the images. You can make your own prints, post photos to social media, and share with family and friends.
  • Your photos will be fully edited for exposure, color, and composition, and uploaded to an online gallery, typically 2-5 days after your session. From there you can download the digital files and purchase prints and other photo products (or make them yourself using the digital files).
  • There is a $75 non-refundable deposit to reserve your session. If we have to postpone due to the weather, we’ll reschedule for another day as soon as possible (usually within one week). The final balance is due on the day of your session, and any extra coverage charges are due before delivery of the photos.
  • What if we go over your session time? Extra coverage for spending more time at a location, or adding another stop on campus is priced at $100 per 30 minutes. If we go over your session time more than 20 minutes due to waiting in lines, there will be a $50 charge per 30 minutes.
  • Remember to plan for extra time to visit the stadium area and the arboretum, to account for travel and parking.
