What You'll Get
Photographs provide a more concrete way of recording recollections than sketching portraits in sand or dictating memoirs to an empty jam jar. Preserve precious memories with today's Groupon: for $38, you get a one-hour in-studio or on-location portrait session (a $50 value), three edited digital images (a $180 value), and one of two print packages—one 11"x14" print or three 5"x7" prints (each a $145 value)—from Dodgen Photography (a $375 total value), plus a 10% discount on any additional prints. In-studio shoots are available for up to 12 subjects; on-location shoots can be held anywhere within 50 miles of Des Moines and have no subject limit.
The team at Dodgen Photography captures ephemeral moments through the expressive medium of digital photography. One-hour modeling sessions can take place at any location, including owner Bruce Dodgen's studio in Clive or nestled among the breathtaking plants of an air-thieving garden. Post-shoot, images are treated to the spa-like splendors of digital retouching, sighing as their souls are cleansed of red eyes and grumbling as they're transferred to hard copies. Clients can make their photo selections at a separate viewing session, choosing between one 11"x14" print or three 5"x7" prints of one or more poses. A trio of favorite images from the shoot will also be stored on a compact disc with copyright release, convenient both for shifting photos to personal computers or emailing headshots to talent agents that work for the big Hollywood studio's food court.

About Dodgen Photography
Bruce Dodgen of Dodgen Photography snaps meaningful mementos destined to dress walls, wallets, and digital landscapes. Equipped with Nikon digital cameras and professional lighting equipment for in-studio and on-location shoots, he captures images of engaged couples. Subjects return to the studio to review the fruits of their session and select which should be printed and burned to CD or emblazoned permanently in the mind’s eye. After customers view the images, he hands them to his spouse and business partner Paula, who touches up the images with her prodigious Photoshop skills, smoothing out uneven skin and limiting the prominence of relatives’ likenesses to Big Foot.
