Eagle Tip - Eagle Scout Photos (and an Important Notice)
By: Posted On: 2015-01-01

Eagle Scout Photos

I’ve often (probably too often) compared Eagle courts of honor to weddings. There are many differences, of course, including the lack of a bride, but there are many similarities as well.

One such similarity is – or should be – the presence of a photographer. These days, of course, virtually everybody has a camera or three, so getting photos is easy. But it’s still important to designate an official photographer who doesn’t have any other duties on the day of the big event.

I also encourage folks to get a formal portrait in addition to shots of the ceremony. Twenty-five or 50 years from now, your new Eagle Scout will treasure that photo – and so will his family. (One of my favorite photos of my father-in-law is a studio shot taken around the time he became an Eagle Scout.)

If you’re looking for inspiration, consider this shot from the 1939 Handbook for Scoutmasters!
