Senior Graduation Photos at East Carolina University | Sarah Elizabeth

Summer senior graduation photos at East Carolina University

Graduation sneaks up on you fast. One day you’re studying in the library and cheering at football games…the next thing you know it’s time for graduation photos!

I book out pretty far in advance for college senior photos because there’s only a certain window of time where seniors have their caps and gowns before graduation, so when Sarah originally reached out to me I didn’t have availability. She ended up waiting over the summer and we scheduled her photos right before the summer season ended and I actually loved it!

We were able to walk around campus without any crowds and it was gorgeous outside. She didn’t feel stressed with graduating deadlines and was able to fully enjoy it.

I always love coming to East Carolina University. Their campuses are one of my favorites to photograph, and Sarah Elizabeth is an ADPi so we also captured a few images at the house!

While I will always love the classic senior grad photos with white dresses and gold stoles, I absolutely LOVE when we add a jersey to the mix! This was a last minute change right after the champagne but the ones of her in the fountain are some of my favorites!!

Congratulations Sarah Elizabeth!!! So excited to see all that you accomplish in the future 🙂
