My name is Trevor Mahlmann. I am a professional photographer based here in West Lafayette.

I am gearing up for the Spring 2018 graduation season here at Purdue and have a much more refined process for scheduling photo sessions this year!

Below you’ll find a place to select which type of session you’d like, from just yourself all the way up to a full group of friends or family!

If you are interested in booking a session, you’ll find an FAQ below the booking section with LOTS of information about logistics/etc and will help answer your questions!

If you could, please read through the FAQ section to see if your question is answered there before sending me an email.

My Single, Small Family, Large Family, and Small Group sessions include individual photos of graduates. Large and XL Group sessions are group photos only.
Yes! It just depends on how many friends (graduates) you want in your group. You have a few options:
  • Individual/Group Photos: (one session)
    • Book a "Small Group" session and keep your group of friends/graduates under 5. (including you)
  • Individual/Family/Group Photos: (two sessions)
    • Book a "Small Family" or "Large Family" session (individual photos included)
    • Book a "Small, Large, or XL Group" session. (depending on graduate group size)
  • Individual/Group Photos, no family photos: (two sessions)
    • Book a "Single" session (individual photos included)
    • Book a "Small, Large, or XL Group" session. (depending on graduate group size)
Yes! And once I send you the completed images, there will be a 20% off coupon code at the top of the page you can use if you order through my site!
I am open to your suggestions of things generally in-between the Arch and PMU but here are the locations graduates want to visit most frequently:
  • Purdue Gateway Arch
  • Neil Armstrong Statue/Hall of Engineering
  • Engineering Fountain
  • Hovde Hall
  • Bell Tower
  • John Purdue Statue
  • Loeb Fountain
  • University Hall
  • Memorial Mall
  • Unfinished "Block P" Sculpture
  • Purdue University Sign #1 on Grant Street (near KNOY)
  • Purdue Memorial Union
  • Purdue University Sign #2 on Grant Street (L shaped corner of Grant and State St.)
  • Harry's Chocolate Shop Outside Wall
The order will vary inversely based on your meeting location.
The prices shown above are a total price!
You would divide the price by how many graduates/friends you have in your group.
For example: Large Group // $350 // 10 Graduates // $35 per Graduate
The group should designate one person to book the session and the friends in the group would be responsible for paying that person back.
I have an exciting photography opportunity overseas during the first week of December. This opportunity may slip to the right and I may not make it back to the States in time to photograph your session. Should this happen, I will make every effort to reschedule your session. Should we not find a time that works or you prefer not to reschedule for whatever reason, I will refund 100% of your booking pre-payment.

If you still have questions about booking not answered above, feel free to contact me here and I’ll do my best to get back to you ASAP!

Please double-check the email you provide is correct to make sure I respond to the right one!
