The photographers at Wedding Box Photography capture glamorous images in their Flushing, Queens or Manhattan studios, or on location during the up to two-hour photo shoots.

After the session, models review their likenesses online or back in the studio and select 30 or 50 digital images to be saved to CD or an online gallery. Though not included with this deal, clients may purchase prints of any image to use as holiday greetings, headshots, or inefficient screensavers.

Finally, a selection of leather rugs gets you as close as you're probably ever going to get to walking across the back of Arthur "The Fonz" Fonzarelli.
