A picture is worth a thousand words, making photographs and stick-figure sketches the easiest solutions to looming dissertation deadlines. Take advantage of efficient visual-communication strategies with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get a one-hour photo session and a $200 print credit from Photography By Angelique (up to a $350 total value). The photo shoot can take place at any location within the Columbia city limits.
Angelique is a talented natural-light photographer who uses her keen eye, finely honed sensibilities, and years of experience to preserve treasured memories with whimsical portraits of families and children. During the 60 minutes of on-location shutterbugging, Angelique will snap artistic snapshots of up to five people at a location of the subjects' choosing, whether it's a favorite park or a favorite parking-lot lamppost (up to a $150 value). Angelique recommends that clients wear brightly colored, embellished clothing and accessorize with hats, vintage dolls, or portraits of themselves. On location, Angelique will brief subjects on the ins and outs of photo sessions, giving professional tips to help capture natural exuberance and calm nerves.
Within two weeks after the session, a private, password-protected online gallery will house 50–80 creatively processed proofs to be printed as high-resolution portraits and used as representative images of humanity to be packed inside space probes. With the $200 print credit included with this Groupon, customers can create a mélange of 5x7 ($35 each), 8x10 ($45 each), and 11x14 prints ($75 each).
Photography by Angelique
Chief among photographer Angelique’s loves in life is the art she produces behind a camera. Her work often takes her traveling to locations across Columbia, where she harnesses the natural light of the morning and evening to capture her subjects in vibrant color and classic black and white, with her own antique props in tow. A mother of four, it’s no coincidence that she specializes in family photography; among her specialties is capturing keepsake images of newborns and happy couples. Her work also encompasses portraits of high-school seniors bound for their first trials in the real world, such as convincing bouncers that they have diplomatic immunity.
