What You'll Get
A picture is worth a thousand words, so after a look at the photographic feats on Langford Photography's website, you probably won't need to read the rest of this Groupon where you get seven full sheets of top-quality photos taken on location (a $319 value) or at Langford Photography's classy Villa Rica studio (a $119 value). That means picture-taking power-couple Joe and Kim Langford will show up on location for a photography session. Or bring your spouse, family, and friends to pose in picture-perfect studio scenes (the studio is open Monday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.)
The Langfords say they're like photojournalists: unobtrusive during your session, but sneaky and charming enough to capture every detail to make you look really important. One sheet (which normally costs $16.99) fits one 8x10 photo, two 5x7 pictures, eight wallet shots, a 5x7 and three wallets, four 4x6 pictures, or several tiny photos that come together to make one big photo of Chipper Jones's head affixed to a bear's body catching a condor with his paw. Mix and match any pose from the shoot. The artful, creative shots are processed one at a time by professional labs on archival quality paper, so it takes three days to develop them if you go to the studio, about two weeks if the Langfords shoot on location, or no time at all if you forgo the pictures and use your photographic memory instead.

According to Wikipedia, every picture is worth these 1,000 words:
James Dalton is a professional "cooler" (i.e. head bouncer) with a mysterious past who is enticed from his current job in Los Angeles by club owner Frank Tilghman to work at his club, The Double Deuce, in Jasper, Missouri. With a philosophy degree from New York University and a preference for peacefully resolving confrontation Dalton seems the antithesis of the nightclub bouncer.
Upon arriving in Jasper, Dalton anticipates his popularity among some of the local townsfolk and buys a battered old 1965 Buick Riviera, filling the trunk with spare tires. These come in handy when local thugs repeatedly slash the tires and vandalize the car. He takes lodging at a local farm. The farmer and his new tenant become acquainted. The occasion is also Dalton's indirect introduction to local business magnate (and next door neighbor) Brad Wesley, who consistently irritates Emmett by deliberately flying low over Emmett's farm with his helicopter.
In the course of cleaning up the violent nightclub Dalton dismisses several unruly and corrupt employees, including Pat McGurn, the bartender and Wesley's nephew, and Morgan, a surly bouncer whose demeanor causes more trouble than it solves.
After a scrape with Wesley's henchmen for refusing to re-hire Pat, a visibly injured Dalton admits himself to the hospital, medical file in hand, where he meets and is treated by Dr. Elizabeth Clay. The doctor and Dalton strike up a friendship which eventually blossoms into a romantic relationship. Unknown to Dalton at this point Clay turns out to be Wesley's ex girlfriend.
Wesley invites Dalton to his home in a seemingly innocent attempt to make peace, but he has an ulterior motive: Wesley would like Dalton to work for him once he extorts Tilghman's club. When Dalton declines, Wesley begins an assault on Dalton's friends, including interfering with liquor deliveries to the Double Deuce. Dalton's mentor, aging but legendary cooler Wade Garrett, arrives in town after a disconcerting phone call from Dalton and helps him defend a liquor shipment from Wesley's thugs.
That evening local business owner, and Elizabeth's uncle, Red Webster’s store, is destroyed by a coincidental fire after he refuses to give ground to Wesley's persistent extortion demands. Dalton allows Wesley and his men entrance to the club that night, along with the regular customers. Wesley coaxes his girlfriend, Denise, to perform a strip-tease. Unimpressed, Dalton calmly but firmly removes Denise from the stage and chides Wesley for her behavior, to the dismay of the cheering patrons. In retaliation, Wesley calls for his right-hand man, Jimmy, a former convict and proficient martial artist. Jimmy instigates a fight, systematically disabling the bouncers one by one with a pool cue while Wesley's henchmen engage Dalton and Wade. Jimmy then turns his attention to Wade. Despite Wade's hand-to-hand combat prowess (it is later revealed that he trained Dalton), Jimmy gets the upper hand until Dalton intervenes, and the two have a brief but heated skirmish before Wesley calls a halt to the mêlée.
The next day car dealership owner Pete Stroudenmire becomes Wesley's next victim when he too rebuffs Wesley. As a result, Wesley has one of his thugs, Gary Ketchum, demolish the structure with his monster truck as Dalton and his friends look on with contempt. After the incident, Garrett tries to convince Dalton to consider the possible consequences of involving himself in the town's affairs and leave Jasper. However, Dalton is determined to stay. Their interaction reveals that Dalton considers Wade his most trusted confident.
That night Doc visits Dalton and also attempts to persuade him to leave; however, their conversation is interrupted by a massive explosion; Emmett's home has been fire bombed. Dalton overhears the engine of a dirt bike in the distance and observes Jimmy, who stops to laugh at the carnage, fleeing the scene. Dalton, furious and obviously having had enough of Wesley's strong-armed tactics, chases and leaps at Jimmy, knocking him from the bike. As the fight ensues, Dalton eventually manages to gain an upper hand, prompting Jimmy to pull a concealed pistol. Dalton deflects the pistol and kills Jimmy by tearing out his throat with his bare hand (an earlier implied maneuver he used years ago to defend himself). Jimmy immediately dies from the wound, and Elizabeth leaves, horrified by what she has just witnessed.
Returning to the club the next day Dalton receives an ominous call from Wesley, seeking revenge for Jimmy's death. Wesley asks Dalton to make a shocking choice: he must decide whether Wade or Elizabeth will be killed. Wesley ultimately decides by the flip of coin but does not reveal the outcome. Suddenly, Wade stumbles into the building, severely beaten. After Dalton helps him to the bar. Dalton makes the unknowingly fatal mistake of leaving Wade unattended while he tries to convince Elizabeth to leave town with him and his friend. Elizabeth, still repulsed by Dalton's actions the night before, adamantly refuses. Finally realizing he has no other recourse, Dalton returns to the Deuce to meet up with Wade and leave town. He soon discovers Wade has been brutally murdered. Pinned to the body, by way of a dagger, is a note reading "It was Tails." Wrought with grief, an enraged Dalton infiltrates Wesley's estate, where he overcomes Wesley's men. Ketchum, revealed to be Wade's killer, is killed by Dalton in the same manner as was Wade, and ironically retorts with the words "Tails again."
Dalton eventually comes face-to-face with Wesley, and the two battle until Dalton restrains Wesley on a couch. Staring down at Wesley with his hand poised to rip Wesley's throat, he reflects about the error of his past violent ways; he turns his back, giving Wesley the opportunity to reach for a nearby gun. Clay arrives just in time to watch as the men Wesley has persecuted over the years, Red, Emmett, Stroudenmire, and even Tighlman, come to Dalton's defense and shoot Wesley dead. The movie then concludes with a shot of Dalton jumping into a local swimming hole to share a romantic skinny-dip with Doc Clay. – Road House, 1989 film
