Photography, framing and memorabilia

A professional photograph will be taken of each graduate as they cross the stage. The photos are available from the Phillips and Father website after the ceremonies. A DVD of the ceremony will also be available for purchase.
Certificate framing is available after your ceremony. Frames can be ordered and pre-paid prior to your ceremony to speed the framing process.
