A photographic memory is a blessing and a curse: you can remember everything, but you can't change the trial memories to make it so you were the one with the gavel and the wig. Let your memories embellish the past, but capture the truth for your records with today's deal. For $50, you'll get an in-studio session ($75), one 8x10 image ($38.95), and contact sheets with 40 wallet-size images (up to $30) at Al Torres Photography. Citysearchers named Al Torres the Best Photographer in Houston in 2006 and 2007.
Snap-dragon Al Torres brings more than 20 years of moment-capturing experience to the table, with skill in shooting families, pregnancy, babies, professional headshots, weddings, and fine art. Torres keeps each session simple, helping subjects relax to allow their personalities and demeanors to shine through in each shot. His comfortable studio is fertile ground for vampires and beach bums alike, shrouded in dark curtains with easy access to flattering, natural light. Your Groupon is valid for any type of photo session including engagement, family, maternity, senior photos, or headshots.
Photographs, like umbrellas in the spring and vegetables with dinner, fall into the category of things you'll be glad you took the extra time to consider. Slipped into a pocket, a wallet photo can create a lasting impression on your bus-stop crush. Create face confetti for your best friend's surprise birthday, or decoupage your antique nightstand with replicas of your beaming mug. The studio is open every day except Monday. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.
Al Torres Photography
Even Al Torres’ lightly posed shots exude the aura of candid photography, capturing close-ups of wide-eyed babies, carefree frames of expectant mothers, and black-and-white shots of the raw human form in an editorial style that landed him Best of Citysearch awards two years in a row. Peering through high-caliber Nikon lenses, Al cultivates winsome smiles within his studio, using a combination of natural and studio lighting to accentuate eye color and play down tattooed-on five o’clock shadows. After sessions, subjects can view the shots online and decide which prints to transform into custom photo albums, copyright-released digital images, or gallery wall prints.
