GradImages is the official photographer for Messiah’s Commencement ceremony. A professional photographer will take individual pictures of each graduate as they receive his/her diploma. Each graduate will receive a free passport-sized digital proof of this photograph on an order card within five to seven business days following the ceremony, along with instructions on how to order photos directly from the studio. If you would like to pre-register your contact information to receive your proofs even faster electronically and/or add family and friends to view your Commencement photo proofs, visit, and click on “Pre-Event Registration.” To contact the studio by phone with questions following Commencement, call (800) 261-2576.

The College has contracted with First Generation Video (FGV), a premier regional video and multimedia production company, to serve as the college’s official videographer for Commencement Weekend. FGV will capture the excitement and sentiment of both the Baccalaureate and Commencement Ceremonies so that you can sit back and enjoy the ceremonies. The college provides FGV with optimum positioning for videotaping to capture each graduate as they cross the stage and receive their diploma.
