Yuen Lui Studio, a family-owned photography business specializing in individual and family portraits, has been creating photographic heirlooms since 1947. With your 20- to 30-minute photo session ($30), get your soul captured indoors at Yuen Lui's studio, boasting 16 background options, or let nature provide the backdrop at Aliso Beach's outdoor picture-taking spots. Up to eight people can appear in the shoot (additional subjects will incur an extra cost), making this deal an ideal opportunity to upgrade the framed family photos that have been hanging in your parents’ home for the past 600 years. Now that you aren’t riddled with acne or plagued with a six-year-old’s gummy smile, split the cost with your sibs and surprise your folks with a more up-to-date snapshot just in time for the holidays.

Lacey Yantis and Aaron Blank’s Hawaii wedding was more than a personal milestone for them—it was the beginning of a shared career in wedding photography. The duo now helm Visions of Romance, named Top Wedding Photographer by Real Simple and awarded a spot in The Knot’s Best of Weddings list in 2011. The studio’s shoots unobtrusively chronicle nuptials, from the bridal party’s primping to the reception, in a style that marries photojournalism with a touch of traditional wedding portraiture. Afterward, couples view and proof images in private online galleries, collecting physical photos in optional keepsake wedding albums from designers such as Graphistudio and La-vie Album. The photographers also capture couples’ connections in engagement shoots, or outdoor shoots in which brides "trash” their dress post-wedding by wearing it into the ocean or to a food fight.
