Photographs transport people to an earlier time without the need to master quantum physics or pay the tolls associated with America’s wormhole highways. Capture fleeting moments for future examination with today’s Groupon: for $69, you get a couple’s portrait package from Alexandra Marlin Photography (a $250 total value). The package includes the following:
- A one-hour couple’s photo shoot
- A high-resolution CD of all images
- Two retouched digital images<p>
Specializing in contemporary portraiture, Alexandra Marlin collaborates with clients, coaxing out their personalities in front of her lens to capture genuine moments. Alexandra puts couples at ease in their choice of three locales—on location in Malibu or Lake Balboa or at her Tarzana studio—resulting in candid images ideal for displaying at home, in holiday cards, or on a billboard facing a boss’s office window. During the shoot, couples can laugh, play, listen to music, and be themselves as Alexandra snaps anywhere from 100 to 150 shots. After the session, Alexandra crams a digital CD with all of the high-resolution images. Subjects receive their CD within one week of the shoot, then elect two images for retouching, which can eliminate blemishes, wrinkles, or feral sports mascots lurking in the background.
