Photographers attempt to capture their subjects in moments of emotional honesty, which is why so many photo shoots take place at the crest of a rollycoaster and in divorce court. Preserve candid memories with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a one-hour studio session (a $50 value) and an 11"x14" wall portrait (a $155 value), at Nautilus Photography (a $205 total value).
Since 1982, Nautilus Photography has been capturing the precious milestones and semi-precious inch-rocks of families, high-school seniors, and the newly engaged within its studio and surrounding gardens. Floor-to-ceiling windows flood the interior with sunlight to naturally accent patrons' pearly whites, dimpled cheeks, and enviable toucan beaks. During the one-hour session, up to seven customers (additional subjects will incur an additional charge), comprising a family or a new superhero group in need of promotional photos, can choose between several backdrops and amass a litany of props for swan-dives into piles of throw pillows and feather boas. Out on the sun-bleached blonde-wood deck, vases of hanging ivy speckle the white stucco walls stained with hints of aquamarine, and latticework awnings complete the playful integration of Floridian shoreline and English garden. Subjects can pose on a sand-colored cast-stone bridge overlooking sultry tropical foliage, or disappear into the vegetation to nail the "fleeing sasquatch" pose.
After Nautilus has captured your essence in as many as 30 different poses, you'll return to full-motion life and choose your favorite shot for an 11"x14" print. Nautilus performs any necessary standard retouches to keep your memories unsullied by unruly stray hairs or profanity-laced thought balloons.
