Before photography, family memories were kept alive through annual reenactments of the year's best moments, despite Grandpa's continued miscasting as the mischievous puppy. Treasure your memories with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a 60-minute photo shoot in the Great Smoky Mountains (a $100 value), a 10" x 10" custom-designed storyboard collage (a $100 value), and a high-resolution digital image (a $50 value) from Contrast Photo (a $250 total value). This Groupon is valid within 30 miles of the 37738 zip code and is available for groups of up to 50 people.
Contrast Photo's resident shutterbug Genelda Myers invites subjects to join her from a perch in the picturesque Great Smoky Mountains, with suggested locations in Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, and Sevierville. During the 60-minute session, customers pose alongside loved ones or chiseled mountain faces while Genelda captures fleeting moments with creative precision. At the conclusion of the shoot, select a favorite portrait to be transformed into a high-resolution digital photo file, with copyright release on a CD for future printing and sharing purposes. The 10" x 10" custom-designed storyboard creates a collage using four to nine selected images, bringing to life a series of laughs or the results of a heated chess match with a competitive chipmunk.
Photographer Genelda Myers lives with her family in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains, a setting whose craggy beauty allows her to constantly practice her specialty: outdoor photography. Drawing on a college degree in photography and graphic design, Myers directs traditional yet relaxed shoots that capture subjects at ease amid scenic outdoor environs. The resulting images, which Genelda converts to print and digital forms, chronicle landmark moments ranging from a newlywed’s first kiss to a child’s first altercation with a garden hose.
