The best photographers rise to the top by practicing, while second-best photographers rise to the top by shooting blackmail photos of the first-best. Get snapped by a champ with today's Groupon: for $85, you get an on-location photography package from Kristi Sneddon (a $286 total value). The package includes:
- One-hour on-location shoot (a $250 value)
- Online gallery of up to 100 digital images
- One 8"x10" print of one image (a $36 value)
Sharpening her photographic instincts by snapping weddings, families, and infants, Kristi Sneddon encourages clients to turn photo shoots into celebratory events. After scheduling the on-location shoot, Sneddon scouts the locale to get a feel for its possibilities and to shoo away any B-list celebrities looking for a flash-bulb fix and then provides clients with a clothing consult. During the shoot, clients can invite as many people and request as many portraits as can fit into the one-hour session, after which up to 100 photos are uploaded into a password-protected online gallery. About two weeks after the shoot, Sneddon invites clients for a sit-down to review the images, during which family, friends, and nosy neighbours are welcome to view the photos as well. Clients choose one image to develop into 8"x10" print in choice of colour, black and white, or sepia and can also peruse additional order options for purchase. Single enlargements range from such standard sizes such as 4"x6" ($8) and 11"x14" ($48), and personalization options include custom framing ($150+), event cards (starting at $275 for 50 cards), and artistically rendered marker moustaches.
Kristi Sneddon Photographer
Featured in Calgary Bridal Guide and Calgary Bride, photographer Kristi Sneddon specializes in nuptial snapshots while also training her lens on families, youngsters, and moms-to-be. She relaxes clients during shoots with her genial demeanor and showcases proofs in follow-up meetings outfitted with tissues for tears of happiness. After collaborating with clients to select the most flattering shots, Kristi can print images or ensconce them in books and frames.
Hands-on workshops at her studio impart photographic techniques to nascent photographers, helping parents capture their youngsters’ childhoods in images that look as professional as a set of pinstriped office furniture. Kristi tailors her instruction to DSLR cameras or simpler digital models—including smartphone cameras—in her two workshops, which welcome students’ children as onlookers and photo subjects.
