All four of Sweeney Photography's photographers are pros who have been perfecting their soul- and smile-capturing abilities since they were very young. Put one of their nurturing directorial skills and time-freezing talents to the test by having him or her coax natural smiles out of a newborn, a soon-to-be mom, a high-school senior, pets, or family members. Sweeney Photography is capable of handling families as large as fifteen ($85 for session only) or as small as two ($45 for session only). Plus, Sweeney’s skilled shutterbugs are adept at providing bands with CD-cover images and actors and public figures with publicity portraits wherein they aren’t juggling cats. Visit the chic studio to get immaculately lighted, impeccably assembled shots, or let a photographer travel to your living room, favorite park, or the inside of an abandoned salt mine to capture artful images that incorporate real-life details. If you get two Groupons and combine them for a wedding, a photography planner will take the time to understand your and your fiancé’s vision and style before pairing you with a like-minded squad of shutterbugs who will canvas the scene in search of the most momentous moments.
