The great romantic painters had the same goal: craft an image so beautiful it would come to life and marry them. Increase your chances of turning images into love using the modern version of painting—photography—with today’s Groupon: for $69, you get a two-hour in-studio boudoir photo session at Laura MacPhee Photography (a $350 value). Each session includes:

- Two 4”x6” prints
- Two 5”x7” prints
- Complimentary champagne<p>
An experienced wedding photographer, Laura MacPhee applies her expert eye to framing sultry shots of female clientele during two-hour boudoir sessions. After sipping complimentary champagne, clients pout and pose in their own racy wardrobe pieces. Within the professional studio, Laura collaborates with her subjects to create an environment where they feel comfortable enough to take off their socks. Laura assembles 20–30 proofs in an online viewing gallery, which clients can mull over until they decide the postures that best befit two 4”x6” and two 5”x7” prints. A DVD loaded with five digitally retouched images ensures that any fruit-punch moustaches are removed and clients look their absolute best. Laura is available by appointment, with the exception of Sunday, April 22–Sunday, April 29, and Saturday, June 30–Saturday, July 7.
Laura MacPhee Photography
Two forces have constantly battled for Laura MacPhee’s affection: her career as photographer and her hometown of Halifax. After studying photography in the city, Laura skipped graduation to hop on a plane to New York City, where she began sharpening her skills as an intern at the Knot. Homesick for Nova Scotia after a year and a half, she returned to Halifax and synergized those competing forces by founding Laura MacPhee Photography.
Amid the region’s breathtaking terrain, Laura flashes her camera at expectant moms, families, and engaged couples. Portrait sessions also occur in her studio on the Halifax waterfront, where she also orchestrates intimate boudoir sessions. For weddings, she and a trusted second photographer shoot up to eight hours of coverage, which newlyweds can preserve with prints, hardcover books, or new wedding veils made out of negative film strips. Despite being stationed in Halifax, Laura happily travels for destination weddings; thus far, her passport has been stamped for work in Cuba and the Dominican Republic.
