For a custom portrait session, parents have the option of hiring one of our approved professional photographers. This formal portrait service may not be for everyone, but it is available for those who are interested. Many families appreciate this service since their son and daughter can be photographed in their full dress uniform in our unique campus setting.

  • Contact the photographer of your choice to schedule your private appointment.
  • Submit a non-refundable sitting fee of $100 to the photographer (Specialized photography will require an additional fee).
  • If your student does not keep or cancels the scheduled appointment within 24 hours prior to the session, the sitting fee will be forfeited.
  • To provide security to our students, Culver’s staff photographers and those listed here are the only photographers authorized to photograph on the Culver campus.
