United States Naval Academy Portraits | USNA Photographer | Annapolis, MD

The United States Naval Academy (USNA) Graduation Ceremony is more than just a ceremony; it’s a rite of passage. It marks the culmination of four years of rigorous academic, physical, and leadership training. Midshipmen have endured countless challenges, from grueling physical fitness tests to demanding academic schedules, all while developing the leadership skills necessary to serve as officers in the Navy and Marine Corps.

Graduation signifies their transition from students to commissioned officers, ready to take on the responsibilities and challenges that come with protecting and serving the nation. For many, it’s a dream realized and a moment that encapsulates their commitment to duty, honor, and country.

The iconic Blue Angels, the Navy’s flight demonstration squadron, perform an awe-inspiring flyover, symbolizing the commencement of the ceremony and adding a touch of spectacle to the day. A beloved tradition, the hat toss is a jubilant and iconic moment. As the new officers throw their caps into the air, it symbolizes their transition from midshipmen to Navy and Marine Corps officers.

Graduation photos are an integral part of this rite of passage. They serve as a lasting memento of the time spent in Annapolis as midshipmen. With the Academy as the backdrop and uniform on, we capture a rich visual history of the Naval Academy’s present, connecting the past with future generations. These photos are often used in professional portfolios, military records, and personal collections. They serve as a testament to the individual’s accomplishments and dedication.

As we look forward to the 2024 graduation, we celebrate the remarkable achievements of the midshipmen and the traditions that make the USNA experience unique. Congratulations to the Class of 2024—you’ve earned your place in history. Fair winds and following seas!

Photography Editing Styles

When planing your wedding day, you chose the perfect dress, the theme for the day, the music, the food, the venue and of course, the photographer! Your photographer is who will be by your side the entire day, the person that captures all that you planned, the details, the story. You’ve most likely gone through the photographer’s website and looked at their work, seen other peoples wedding photos and thought, “wow, that’s beautiful, I like their style. You’re hired!” Your photographer is your moment capturer, your personal paparazzi, they snap from their point of view and document what they are seeing. Some photographers love to be edgy and artsy, some love candids, others come with a photo journalistic approach. […]
