2017 Graduation Photos (Scroll down for sample pictures from 2014, 2015, & 2016!)
Hi all, it's that time of the year again! I will be taking grad shoot reservations now through the end of the school year. It's really easy to book and these sessions always end up being super fun and stress-free. You will get a full album of fun, candid, and beautiful images to commemorate your time at UCLA - I guarantee it!
I have done a lot of these shoots over my 4 years at UCLA (and 2 years post grad) and I can safely guarantee a top notch experience. Last year, I had the honor of working with about 150 different groups of students! They've all been a blast! And honestly, I charge a very reasonable rate - I do this because we are students, and I want everyone to have the opportunity to have a great graduation photo shoot. For example, a 4 person shoot is just $55/person! Graduation is a big deal, and I want to make sure that all of my clients get the best images possible to remember their times at UCLA.
Pricing for a 70 minute group shoot is $220 for 2-4 person groups, and $30 extra per person beyond 4. Larger groups (7+) may message me for reduced pricing. I am also offering 40 minute individual shoots for $140. I highly recommend booking and shooting early to avoid the crowds, lines, and events that take place in May and June.
Included in a group shoot package is:
70 minutes of shooting time
*Both group and individual shots*
Every single photo we take edited & given to you digitally (normally at least 400+ per shoot)
Photos uploaded onto my Charlie Chang Photography Facebook page for you and your friends to view (optional)
Quick turnaround time (usually under 4 days to edit+post)
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, message me on Facebook, or use the submission form at the bottom of the page to contact me.
Congrats on graduating, Class of 2017!
"Where do we take pictures on campus?"
My shoots start either at the Bruin Bear or in front of Royce. A sample itinerary is as follows: Start at the Bruin bear, then move on to Bruin walk, Janns steps, Royce Hall, Powell Library, and the Fountain. Of course, I take requests and we can really shoot anywhere on campus! Just tell me at the start of our shoot and I will concoct a game plan for us. There are also some hidden gems I can take you to.
"If I book a group shoot, do we get individual pictures as well?"
Yes! At any of the locations we go to, we will probably get individual shots as well. It's like a 2-for-1 deal.
"How do you select the photos?"
There are two options. The first is that I can provide you with every photo we take during our shoot. These will be processed in Lightroom for contrast, lighting, and color to get my signature look. The other option is that I can go through and personally choose all the best ones. These will be processed in the same way. You'll likely end up with at least 140 shots per group shoot, and 60-80 per individual shoot. The choice is yours, but most people choose to receive every photo we take! :)
"What happens after the shoot?"
After our tearful goodbyes, I will email whoever booked the shoot a link to download high-resolution edited images from the shoot! I deliver all my shoots with Smugmug, which is a premium online viewing gallery. You can then download photos individually or all at once, and share the link with friends, family, and your fans. I can also upload the album to my Charlie Chang Photography Facebook page so your friends can see that you're awesome (this is optional, just let me know on the day of the shoot or after).
"How do I book a shoot with you?"
Like I mentioned above, you can ask about my availability through email (email@example.com), message me on Facebook (www.facebook.com/charliechangphotography), or use the submission form below. Just shoot me your group size, preferred dates/times, and any questions you may have. I'll get back to you right away!
