One of the best things about taking SJSU grad pictures is that it always brings me back to my hometown of of San Jose, CA. The university has many great locations throughout the campus that make for beautiful backdrops. Tower Hall and the student union were must haves for Ivory. The day was warm, sunny, and perfectly showcased the great weather we have in California.
Along with her grad package, Ivy also chose to add a grad cinematic video to her session. These are fun short videos that help capture the feeling of graduation like no other, and provide a long lasting memory of yourself walking the campus one last time.
Below are some of our favorite SJSU grad pictures from our session with Ivy. Enjoy!
