You, crossing the stage to get your diploma: Priceless.

Friends and family can take photos, and our official photographers will document the event, too.  

Official photos

A photographer from GradImages will be at gown distribution so you can have your portrait taken. The photographer will take their time with you so you can look your best. You will be able to do solo and group shots in your gowns.  

The Concordia University Alumni Association arranges for GradImages to take photos at the convocation ceremonies as well. These photos will be a little more rushed. A photographer will take your picture:

  • before you go on stage, and
  • as you cross the stage.

GradImages will contact you within two weeks after convocation. They will present you with sample proofs that you can pick and choose from, as well as an order form. You can also visit to search for your photos by name and grad year.

Concordia and John Molson School of Business diploma frames are available through Concordia Stores, along with other convocation memorabilia.

Graduation portraits

Create lasting memories of your achievement with professional graduation portraits.

Lassman Studios can capture both traditional graduation portraits as well as more personal, stylised shots, if that's what you prefer. Find out more about this service.

Taking photos at the ceremony

You, your family and your friends are welcome to take as many photos as you want during the ceremony, however, please be aware that there are barriers near the stage that you cannot pass.

Our social media toolkit makes it easy to share your pride with your family, friends and followers. 

Photobooths and signs

Photobooths and professional photographers holding festive signs will be available during the vin d'honneur, courtesy of the Concordia University Alumni Association. These photos will be available on Concordia Alumni‚Äôs Flickr page about three to four days after your ceremony.

Flickr photostreams

Concordia's Flickr photostreams are our most complete recording of convocation ceremonies. Our photographers come out in force to make sure your day is covered. Don't be shy, ask us to take your photo!
