Using only natural starch in its cleaning products, Middleton Cleaners removes unwanted dirt, grime, and stains from clothing without leaving behind chemical smells and residue. The company’s dedicated stain slayers cleanse soiled pants, sweaters, blouses, skirts, suit coats, and collared shirts, restoring the vitality of their youth when they could frolic and roam free across department store prairies (each $7.25, plus $1.35 for silk items). Two-piece suits and plain dresses can be pressed back into service just in time for a fancy party or professional prom reenactment ($14.50, plus $2.70 for silk).
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.
