        Graduating college isn't easy - so celebrate your accomplishments, tears, and long nights of studying with photos that will last a lifetime.

        A Bit About Me

        Hi there! First of all, thank you for considering me as your grad photographer. I’ve been doing grad shoots since 2015 and they hold a very special place in my heart, but it wasn’t until I actually graduated from FIU fall 2017 that I fully comprehended what it was like in front of the camera. Something about parading on campus after finishing my final exams, and celebrating 4 years of hard work by popping champagne and throwing glitter everywhere felt truly exhilarating. That’s why I love graduation pictures. I know how exciting this milestone is, and I live vicariously through all of my clients’ hype during our sessions. After 4 years and over 250 grads later, I’ve perfected my craft and have explored many different locations on campus. I’ve compiled this Grad Stylebook in hopes that it will help you visualize what you would like for your pictures.

        Prop Ideas

        Props are a great addition to your session – they help add variety and color to the images.

        I’ve also included links on the images!

        Keep in mind that you would have to purchase your own props, & I would recommend buying them at least 2 or 3 days in advance.

        What To Wear

        Are you looking for a dress for your photoshoot?

        The “standard” has been white dresses, but I’m here to tell you that white isn’t always the best, depending on the kind of look that you’re going for.

        Here are some different colors my clients have worn in the past. 

        The most important thing is that you feel comfortable in whatever you’re wearing. Flowy dresses add movement, while tighter dresses show off that bootay. 

        YELLOW

        Personally, yellow is my favorite color. It contrasts well with greenery. Aaaand, you know, #BlueAndGold?

        RED

        You can never go wrong with a nice, bold red.

        LIGHT BLUE

        Light colors and pastels are always classy.

        DARK GREEN

        Dark green is a gorgeous fall color. If you're graduating during fall semester, dark green and burgundy are gorgeous options.

        LIGHT PINK

        A subtle pink adds a little more color to images than your standard white.

        ROYAL BLUE

        Nothing screams "panther pride" like royal blue. It looks especially great with the masters students gowns.

        Locations on Campus

        Ø1
        Panther Statue
        Ø2
        FIU Library
        Ø3
        GC Walkway
        Ø4
        The Seal
        Ø5
        Architecture Building
        Ocean Bank Arena

        Nothing screams "FIU" more than the Panther Statue - the most iconic pictures you'll have at graduation is in front of our mascot. Bring your props, family & friends for these shots.

        Close to the kissing bridge, Einsteins Bros, & the Engineering building

        The second most iconic location on campus is the FIU library. There are 3 different angles of the library, and it's important to consider which one you would prefer.

        Close to the MARC building

        The walkway towards GC is a perfect place to have some greenery in your photos.

        GC

        Remember during orientation when they told you not to step on the seal? Well, now that you're graduating, it's time to get that epic photo sitting on it!

        Close to the Business building

        The Architecture building has two gorgeous walls - one red and one yellow - that add a nice pop of color to your images and contrast against your outfit.

        Locations on Campus Pt. 2

        Ø1
        GC Fountain
        Ø2

        FIU Logo
        Infront of PC

        The wild ones always get inside the fountain at the very end of the session. This location also has a beautiful view of the FIU Library.

        Close to the Ryder Business Building

        This spot is perfect for couples!

        Your choice!

        If your major has a building dedicated to it - like SIPA for political science majors, FIU Business for accounting, or the college of law if you're going to law school - it would be a nice place to grab pictures in the place where you spent most of your college career.

        SASC 2nd Floor

        If you wanted pictures on a solid background, this yellow wall inside the SASC building is the place to go.

        Deuxième Maison & GC Pit

        If you wanted a few shots with an "FIU" logo, there's one on the first floor of DM and also one inside the GC Pit.

        Clients Say

        Margi was so incredible! I had a graduation shoot with a friend and she had such an amazing way to make us both feel special and have our own unique shots both individually and together. The experience was awesome and pictures were so incredibly beautiful. During the shoot she was so encouraging in helping us be our selves and have some true candids and she gave us direction any time we were unsure of what to do. She ran with every idea we had and helped us make them even better than what we thought they’d be! It was hard to choose our favorites, I wanted to print out every single photo!

        Contact me directly through text at 305 896 1468 with your availability & any questions you may have!

        I’m available both during the week & on weekends, but keep in mind that weekend availability is much more limited & in higher demand. After Spring 2019, I am only accepting a maximum of 10 grads per semester in an effort to focus more on my Weddings, Engagements, & Couples.

        I also require a $99 non-refundable deposit through Cashapp or Venmo (@MargiRentis) to secure your date.

        The best lighting starts between 5:30 and 6PM during Summer & Spring Semesters, and 3:30 to 4PM during Fall Semesters. I usually start off at the Panther Statue.

        I can’t WAIT to be your grad photographer!
