CHEERS TO YOU,
MY FOURTH YEAR FRIEND!

Graduating from UVA is SUCH huge milestones! You should be proud of everything you've accomplished, proud of who you've become and how you've shaped those around you!

These good days in life are worth remembering years down the road!

And trust me, despite all the homework & exams, you'll miss these days! I look back on my college graduation pictures and all the memories come flooding back! Classes and funny professors, late nights on the Corner, hours spent in Clark Library sipping on one too many lattes.

But mostly I remember all the fun times with my very best friends that I wish I could see as often as I was lucky to in college!

At the end of the day, once all the classes have been taken, you've walked the Lawn and worn the Honor of Honors...

Life is really a celebration of the good moments with friends & family, so why not have them captured?

"If I could give her more than 5 stars, I would!! I've had the pleasure of working with her not only for my own graduation photos but also for pictures of my dance team. She is extremely creative and accommodating, and does everything she can to make the process fun and enjoyable!"

"If I could give her more than 5 stars, I would!!"

Manali is an amazing photographer! She took my graduation portraits and they came out absolutely fantastic. She exceeded my expectations and I was so happy with the result! She also made me feel comfortable in front of the camera and gave specific directions for how to pose which I loved. I highly recommend her for any of your photography needs!

Anyone who is graduating from the University of Virginia as the Class of 2021 (whether you're walking in the Fall or the Spring!)

You get pictures from multiple group shoots, tons of individual pictures during these shoots, LinkedIn headshots & a full individual cap & gown session where you're free to bring any friends or family as well! Additionally, we'll have some dinners, happy hours and café study dates that are on me!

That's totally fine! Only two events per semester are mandatory (each won't be more than an hour!) and there will be plenty of smaller ones to choose from! Whether you can stay the whole time for any additional events or just pop in for 15 minutes, we'd love to see you there!
