Professional photography

Graduate portraits

Legacy Photographics, Inc. is the official portrait photographer for Messiah University's Commencement Ceremony. To provide the best opportunity for a quality photograph to document the occasion, a professional photographer will be at the stage during the commencement ceremony to take a portrait of each graduate as they approach the stage area; as well as a picture when they receive their diploma. Not only will every graduate have the best possible photograph of their accomplishment, their guests will be able to remain seated without the worry of getting close to the stage to "capture the moment."

Legacy Photographics, Inc. will contact each graduate after the ceremony with information on how to purchase photos. If you have any questions, please contact Legacy at or 610-279-1791 or visit their website

Baccalaureate and Commencement photo galleries

By popular request, online photo galleries for the Class of 2024 are once again being offered—in collaboration with our event photography partner Nick Gould Photography—where graduates and guests may view and/or purchase photos from the Baccalaureate and Commencement ceremonies. Viewing the photo galleries is complimentary, and the purchase of prints and digital downloads of individual photos for personal use is available directly from the photographer. We are pleased to be able to share the special moments of the Commencement celebration for the Class of 2024!  

NOTE: This event photo gallery is separate from the graduate portrait package that grads and their families will receive directly from Legacy Photographics, Inc., Messiah’s official graduate portrait photographer.
