Photography has progressed exponentially over the past century with the development of digital cameras, faster shutter speeds, and smiling. Capture the latest trends of emotional technology with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get a photo package at Shoot the Moon Photography (a $439 value), valid at studio locations in Delafield and Mequon. The photo package includes the following:
- 30-minute photo session for up to five people
- Two 5”x7” prints of one image and one sheet of wallet prints of the same image or $100 photo credit toward prints and services<p>
The shutterbugs at Shoot the Moon Photography combine keen eyes with expert composition and retouching skills, earning the studio a nod as a Best Photographer Finalist in 2010 and Best Photographer Winner from 2007–2009 for Milwaukee CityVoter. Owner Joy Vertz, who received a Milwaukee magazine award for her boudoir photography in 2010, brings the experience of teaching courses throughout the country, including classes for organizations such as Professional Photographers of America and Senior Portrait Artists. Inside one of two studios with more than 10,000 square feet of combined space and 70 shooting locations, experts use a photojournalistic bent and extra-strength butterfly net to capture subjects’ personalities in natural, flattering poses during a 30-minute session. Armed with the latest digital cameras and professional lighting equipment, photographers snap groups of up to five, including families and friends, in the vast Mequon studio or amid the quaint, country décor of the Delafield studio.
After one week, clients partake in personalized photo reviews and select their favorite image to immortalize in two 5”x7” prints and a sheet of wallet images, and to keep as a blueprint for future back tattoos. Alternatively, clients can opt out of receiving this specific set of prints, and instead can apply a $100 photo credit toward their own choice of prints, wall art, digital negatives, and custom framing services.
