The photos we leave behind may be the only way for future generations to see the styles and personalities we bear. That’s why the professional makeup artists and photographers at Glamour Shots strive to capture the true essence of a person with their shoots. Whether commemorating a milestone event or a successful trip to the grocery store, each session begins with the shop’s signature full airbrush and style makeover, which works to prevent unwanted shine while imparting a chic aesthetic. Makeup artists tailor looks to the purpose of the shoot, imparting children with a red-cheeked glow and boudoir subjects with a dark, seductive color palette.
Photographers encourage everyone to bring a few outfits and props from home, allowing them to give each photo shoot an individualized touch without snapping close-ups of their subjects’ fingerprints. Clients get to see the photos immediately so they can approve the looks and order their favorite shots in the form of pictures, phone cases, or calendars. A professional lab then prints out the chosen items using a range of color finishes—including colorization to make one color pop and the company's signature Glamour Touch retouching—onto made-to-last Kodak paper.
A picture is worth a thousand words, so after a look at the photographic feats on Langford Photography's website, you probably won't need to read the rest of this Groupon where you get seven full sheets of top-quality photos taken on location (a $319 value) or at Langford Photography's classy Villa Rica studio (a $119 value). That means picture-taking power-couple Joe and Kim Langford will show up on location for a photography session. Or bring your spouse, family, and friends to pose in picture-perfect studio scenes (the studio is open Monday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.)
Marvelous Light Studios staff specializes in capturing more than what meets the eye—love and hope, for example, during an engagement session set in a park, or the sense of accomplishment radiating from a senior portrait. Even the titles of the studio's photo packages imply that photography can go beyond the visual. Family photo shoots are part of "The Heritage" sessions, whereas "The Legacy" package showcases an individual's unique character and talents.
Having been behind the lens for more than 28 years, Marvelous Light Studio's photographers have mastered the art of both indoor and outdoor photography. Services range from capturing and editing actor's headshots in the studio to documenting weddings and other parties in a photojournalistic style. This approach encourages natural candid moments and brings emotion to the final, retouched print. The studio can also photograph children, expectant mothers, and couples in their prom attire, who can use the pictures as a better keepsake than a clown-corsage that sprays water at their date.
