Photographs provide a more concrete way of recording recollections than outdated methods of sketching portraits in sand or dictating memoirs to an empty jam jar. Preserve precious memories with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a choice of a senior picture session or an engagement photography session (up to a $179 value) at Fitzgerald Photography. Each session is 30 minutes, and both photo packages include prints, Facebook-ready images, and more.
The owners of Fitzgerald Photography, Scott and Alicia Minor, are members of the Professional Photographers of America and have artfully captured snapshots of memorable moments for more then 10 years. Soon-to-be high-school graduates and future newlyweds can choose between an indoor session in Fitzgerald's studio, which is equipped with professional lighting and props, or an outdoor session in one of five nearby locations, amid natural lighting, chirping birds, and wild wienermobiles ($79 per 30-minute session). After the photo session, seniors will receive two 5"x7" prints, a yearbook picture, and five Facebook-ready images (a $100 total value), and pre-wed couples are sent home with one 8"x10" print, five Facebook-ready images, and 25 postcards, available as save-the-dates and thank-yous (a $90 total value).
From the moment he began snapping shots for his high school's yearbook, Scott never stopped. After graduating from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, he honed his craft at several Anchorage studios before opening Fitzgerald Photography in 2000. He took amateur shutterbug Alicia under his wing, teaching her all his behind-the-lens tricks. As their business blossomed, so did their romance; the two married in 2005.
Together, they capture portraits of families, seniors, newborns, expectant moms, and wedding guests. Scott and Alicia build each snapshot around candid interactions between kin rather than forced poses. Though they have a studio for digitally tweaking images, printing, and shooting, they also like to take full advantage of Alaska's beautiful topography. During on-location shoots, their lenses capture subjects framed against mountain landscapes, posed along woodland trails, or throwing fistfuls of butterflies into tranquil creeks.
