I’ve done so many photoshoots here. From graduates to families, there’s something here for everyone because this campus truly has everything in one location! 

There are so many backgrounds to choose from, including palm trees, green grass, Old Main, the fountain, the Women’s Plaza of Honor, University Blvd, desert areas, and paved streets that are blocked off to cars.

Why You Should Choose the University of Arizona:

One of the best things about the University of Arizona campus is that everything is within walking distance. This makes it easy to navigate and accessible for people of all ages. The flat surfaces make it easy for anyone to navigate around, and there are plenty of benches and shaded areas to take breaks.

For those who need to make outfit changes, restrooms are available within a few minutes’ walk. This makes it easy to switch up your looks and capture various styles in one location. Plus, after your session, you can enjoy a great meal at one of the many local restaurants nearby.

Cons to Consider: 

While the University of Arizona is a fantastic location for a photo session, it’s important to note that it can get packed, especially in April and May. Additionally, parking can be difficult to find, and it is a paid lot. 

Another thing to keep in mind is the use of confetti. While it may seem like a fun idea, it’s important to keep the campus beautiful for everyone. That’s why I follow a no-trace-left-behind philosophy. 

That said, I know that a few of you probably have your heart set on it! If you’d like to discuss alternative options to confetti during your shoot, please let me know! There are so many ways to create the desired effect without littering.

All in all, the University of Arizona is an excellent choice for your next photo session. With its versatile location, easy accessibility, and stunning backdrops, it’s the perfect spot to capture your timeless milestones.
